You mean he isn't in charge of the Daath? I think I have the wrong organizational chart then.

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.


NO! TYPING IN CAPS DOES NOT MAKE YOUR POST MORE IMPORTANT, IT DOES HOWEVER MAKE MINE VERY IMPORTANT SINCE I MADE IT BIGGER!!!

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.)


Glad to help :D

What is this? Blame me? I am 99% pro-Crunchyroll...

you don't need to know the other 11%

I think you're actually having the reverse effect of instigating gorilla marketing.

Free! is certainly more on my mind now than it was before this topic started. I barely thought about it before.

It is better to keep things on the downlow than raise a shit storm that is this.

edit: i am watching anime, either flame more or let the thread subside with a serious discussion on why Free! is the next generation of anime for girls (and guys).

ROFL!


This thread is a "Free!" promotion for "Free!"...


I never thought about this show before either (because 4 pretty boys swimming around can't be that meaningful to watch), now I want to watch it even more.

Yeah I'm going to watch it to spite the OP, and it wasn't on my list of things to watch.

Ever since the new mods have been selected the waters have been tested, I need to tone it down by a percent or two.

So Free! why is it named Free!?

edit: I never knew people watch anime just to spite people... what happened to enjoying the animes you like and not giving a shit to what others thought?

Well, there's nothing wrong with expressing your opinions about how CR should do this or that, that's why we have a "Feedback" sub-forum here. However, how u go about expressing your opinion is the key, and I think how it was worded in the Opening post wasn't exactly the best way to go about it.

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.

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.



it is the wrong message to be sending. those questions shouldnt even be asked as a child.

Here is a fundamental problem, Cr hosts a lot more anime that have traps, yuri, and school days. All of these promote the same concept argument you've provided. If say your protests does go through, then some other person will make the same argument to all the animes with those criteria.

I for one do care what/which type of anime CR gets. I genuinely want the site to host more anime and for ITS ENTIRE USER BASE TO WATCH MORE ANIME.

If you watch more anime you can do many others a favor by recommending and telling which to avoid. If you watch it yourself you can educate others on said (Free!) anime.

Let's see...
The OP doesn't understand the service CR provides... check.
The OP hasn't seen Free! and is making a wild ass guess as to what it is about... check.
The OP doesn't have a clue that you can't subliminally program someone to be gay... check.
The OP is throwing a little "pay attention to me fit" because he's convinced that he's morally right... check.

Yep. I'm definitely watching Free! now.
