If you don't like a show, you don't have to watch it.


i wont watch the show, but i also believe that people have the right to know what they are watching. even if its disguised as something else.


Heh

you know what, to be fair, i will give this anime 1 episode, and if its not shounen ai i will give everyone an imaginary apology. but i think my views will just be confirmed.

ive seen the other show thats totally yaoi, im not gonna say its name here, but thats one thing. the thing about free that makes it so insidious is that at 1st glance the shounen ai isnt all that apparent. but on a subliminal level its there and that sends out a message to young boys that watch it. i dont mind that this kind of thing exists, but they shouldnt be on this site imo. im not a webmaster or mod so i know my opinion on these matters dont go far.

No one is going to be brainwashed into becoming homosexual by an anime; I'm pretty sure decades of anime entertainment in Japan has at least proved that much. There are plenty of homosexual undertones in Yuyushiki, for example, but it doesn't seem like you're concerned that girls who watch that show will transform into lesbians.

Edit: Snipped the rest, the conversation has gone past what I was mostly talking about.

I think this thread is better suited in the "Feedback" sub-forum quite honestly.

does anyone else think free AKA Yaoi swimteam, shouldnt be put on the site?

While it is true that the "forums" are PG-13, that doesn't mean the videos all have to be, and they aren't. This site actually already has shows like Queens Blade, Shin Koihime Musou, etc. so I don't see a problem with adding Free! on here (which isn't even a Yaoi anime).

So supposing there really is "subliminal" shounen ai content? What message does that send out to young boys that watch it? That it's okay to be gay? Well, I think that's a fine message to be sending.

As others have said, even if this were yaoi (which it's not) there would be no reason it should not be shown on Crunchy just because of that label. We've no reason to believe that it will contain any "adult content" sufficiently explicit that would make it unsuitable as part of the CR line-up. If you don't like it you don't have to watch it. If you have young children and you don't want them watching it, don't let them watch it. Heck, if you want to discourage people you know from watching, go ahead. But to suggest that it should not be available for anyone to watch here on CR is absurd.

To your original question: "does anyone else think free ... shouldn't be put on the site?" Well there are a lot of Crunchyroll users so I guess there might be a couple more who think like you on this, but I'm not one of them.

Exactly this. I was trying to figure out how to say this and the way you put it is perfect.

If you truly think and care about the children, why only protest against "Free!" which you assume has shounen ai undertones?


WHy not protest against Henneko! too? That has perverted undertones, boob grabbing? Is that healthy for little kids?

You're worried about the mindset of young boys? What about the mindset of young girls when a lot of the animes on here have women with large chests and have fanservice of some part of the body? All I've seen of this show based on the trailers is high school boys swimming and having fun and however else high school boys act. I'm not sure where you're thinking about this particular show is coming from. You mention things that aren't there in this show yet defend and seem to have no problem with it in other shows that clearly do. You're making something out of nothing.

like i said if im wrong then im wrong, BTW nisekoi is going to be awesome. back on topic, there is a big difference between anime that is strait up yaoi, and anime that just has shounen ai undertones. it gives little boys questions that otherwise wouldnt be there and a site like this has at least some responsibility to have the best interests 0f those children. yes yes i know that is too much to ask. at least by posting this thread maybe 1 or 2 parents will read it and not let their child watch.

Time for my request: ANY ANIME THAT DOESN'T HAVE YURI ON CR SHOULD BE REMOVED! IT IS THE ONLY HEALTHY THING FOR THE MIND! *shakes fist angrily at computer screen*

See, I used all caps which means...something, I forgot what it was.

But those kinds of questions aren't unhealthy. Not unless you're trying to manipulate children into heterosexuality.

actually since you're a paying customer your opinion matters.

at least more than mine...
Well yeah his opinion matters, but so does everyone else's. This includes free members, since their traffic is important due to ad revenue. Ultimately if there are enough people that want to see something and CR can make money off of it they should carry it if they can.

It annoys the hell out of me when people think that their individually insignificant contribution somehow gives them the entitled feeling that they should be able to say what should not be on this site. We pay for the whole package, because every paying customer is making a compromise with every other paying customer in what they want to see. If everyone didn't do this the then we would have no CR at all.

A person pays for CR because there are enough things here that they want to watch by volume not by percentage, just because they add something that someone doesn't want to watch doesn't make the site less valuable.

For every person that is paying for Free! that doesn't want to watch it there are people who are paying for every other show on this site that also don't want to watch them, and its true for every show on this site even the most popular ones.

(BTW not targeted at you AnimeKami. Just used your post as a starting block for something I wanted to say.)

Okay, so you've just gone from suggesting that CR shouldn't show Free! and that it is a disgrace that they will be doing so, to simply alerting parents that in your opinion it's a show not suitable for their children.

That's better.
