That would be great actually. Means i could finish the anime before it expires, and not suddenly just look at the site and its gone.

Yea funimation is weird like that they now do have a streaming site where you can see most if not all their stuff but you have to pay just like for a cr membership. But yea topic at hand I added three animes to my queue when I first joined and then they were all gone over the course of the week. It kind of ticked me off.

The terms of a licenses are frequently NDA'd amongst corporations, meaning that it's not that crunchy doesn't want to tell us - it's that they aren't allowed to. Hulu is likely large enough that they can demand the right to tell their customers when shows will be taken off.

The loss of every Gundam series was a painful blow.
I know it was probably mentioned on the site, but I use the apps for my viewing so it was just gone.

I'm really glad I came to this thread. I apologize for not having a picture of my own to link. Oh well.

Moving on .. yeah, I always wondered this myself. I'd prefer they indicated how long the contract would last just for the lulz. It would encourage yeah to watch certain animes before they're gone.
