I don't know what this is, I don't know whether or not I should be asking about this on this part of the forums. But I want some answers, even if It turns out to be something frivolous.

I was reading a forum post in general discussion, about usernames. Somebody said that they sometimes search their username in Google to see the different stuff that pops up. So despite having the feeling of being slightly egocentric, I decided to Google my username. Normal stuff I expected to appear came up, like old websites I still had accounts on and the like, but something else caught my eye. It was some old Crunchyroll forum posts I had done from awhile ago, yet they were not on crunchyroll. Some website called Genzai had what appears to be a complete copy of crunchyroll, minus the store tab. They also removed the crunchyroll symbol, and put some red circle with the words "live from japan" underneath it.

What I want to know is, 1. Is this some crunchyroll knockoff? 2. Is this some sort of alternate crunchyroll website for a different area? 3. Is it some sort of crunchyroll archive kind of deal? 4. Is it trying to give viruses pretending to be crunchyroll?


I have no idea what to think of it, if it is some knockoff, i'm sure crunchyroll would be pretty upset, if it's some sort of archiving or alternate area type thing then no big deal just please let me know, if it's something else entirely and i'm blowing this out of proportion in my head I would also like to know, but it's somewhat unsettling to me.

That's a long story you posted. The answer is very short and simple: Genzai is the official French version of Crunchyroll. There is already another forum topic for it.

Aha, so it was an alternate area type deal. I see. And the whole long post thing I just can't help but doing, I usually put in a lot of details in the things I write with the intention of cutting it down afterwards, and get extremely frustrated whenever I try to remove stuff, like whatever i'm writing loses it's meaning without that little detail.
