I concur. Writing large paragraphs about frivolous topics is a good way of making ourselves appear mature. Well, in actual fact, it basically signals to those with priorities that you are, indeed, the exact opposite of that. Similarly, spending more than a few seconds pondering the answer to such a trivial thread has the same effect. But, alas, I am now a hypocrite. Why, you might ask? Well, we all are. But that's another story. For now, allow me to inform you that calling any thread "pointless" is silly, and is yet another sign of one who takes themselves too seriously. With this in mind, I hope you change your ways and top yourself, you insignificant piece of worthless shit.

Money is stupid. I'm not paying anything online. Fuck that. I'm a pirate. You guys are paying for pieces of information/electrons that hardly even exist. That is pretty fucking stupid.

I can see why the paying members are bitching about the guest passes.

I've had a couple passes before and honestly, they only grant you 48 hours worth of premium access, and since I generally don't watch tons of new anime episodes over a 2 day period, I really think they aren't worth much, but that's just me. If I want to watch a new anime episode that's on CR but only for premium members, I can easily find the episode on another anime streaming site whether if be legal or not. I watch older animes on CR that are available for free

Personally, I'm not really willing to pay $8 because I generally have no money, nor do I own a credit card. Also, CR's winter simulcasts have too many miniseries / shows I don't necessarily feel like watching, and if I did pay for a membership (if I had money) I'd be wasting the money.

To add:
My parents don't know about my CR account, and I prefer that they continue not to know about it. Otherwise, they'll beg for passwords/info and shit, and look at everything I post, which is honestly an invasion of my privacy.

That's a bit silly. Every premium member who doesn't want to encourage people begging for premium passes on forums on CR, all we have to do is to give them away to people on twitter or facebook or to friends and family. If it makes some other premium member feel happy to be a Big Man On Campus and give their guest passes away on site, that's their prerogative.

Its not like "everyone" is getting "it" for free, where the "it" we are getting is a la carte access any time we want. If there are 5 million free members, and 100,000 paying members, and half of the paying members give their premium passes away on site, that's a 1 in 100 chance of scoring one free pass for two days out of the month. Obviously the squeeky wheels tend to get the grease, but on the other hand, some people are like me ~ I never give a guess pass away to someone who asks for it, I always give it away either to buddies or to people on twitter.

They are for cheap people that refuse to pay the whole $8/month to watch their favorite anime "the day it comes out in Japan." So then they email you and bug you and post annoying remarks in the comments section of your favorite anime begging and pleading for passes to satiate their obsession.

Children who can't get mommy and daddy to pay for their account not withstanding.

I can see the appeal to CR from a business oriented point of view, but as a paying member, I wish they'd just do away with them.


Some people don't have the money bro. I'm always happy to gift out my passes. Seeing anime in high definition and without advertisements for ass cream is pretty chill.

Really, if you want to watch CR anime ad-free and in normal quality, just use AdBlock & NoScript in your browser.

It works for pretty much all video sites (with the exception of Hulu).

That's what I do, because like I said, I can't afford a membership. And I despise ads. I absolutely detest the new YouTube iPhone app, simply because google are being a bunch of greedy, money hungry fucks, and are sticking random ads on short, non-Vevo/non-official/random videos. Ads that I don't want to watch.

Why is this still open? Hasn't the question been answered?

I got anime guest passes but i don't really have any friends?
I mostly stay on my xbox360 or on my pc.


If you want to give away your guest passes, just use this sticky thread that can be found in the Anime forum section:
