With the fall/demise of DramaCrazy.net, I've been looking for an alternative for J-Dramas and the only consistent service with TV streaming is CrunchyRoll *thank the lord for TV streaming*. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of J-Dramas on the list, even though there's an entire country's worth being aired everyday, hell even, Gaki no Tsukai would be AMAZING. But whatever, it may be because of some licensing agreement that we only get Detarame Hero and... Jumbo... and... some detective thing... whatever. All cheeseball dramas even though I am enjoying Detarame Hero, it has the dude from IWGP!

Anyway, is CrunchyRoll considering bringing more Dramas to the service?

11.99/mo and only being able to watch kDramas which we don't watch Japanese/Vietnamese household and we only watch J/US dramas.

Anyone have any leads on this?

Sorry, this post slipped under the radar (I usually notice new things popping up in the Asian Drama forum, but I missed this). I'm now moving it over to the Site Support / Minor Questions forum, since you're specifically asking about any plans Crunchyroll might have for expanding drama offerings.

Please do note that since you are a Premium Member, if there are specific JDrama titles you would like to see, you can request them in the CR Premium Members group. Just join if you haven't already, then look for the "sticky" What series/movie/drama would you like to see on cr thread near the top of that group's forums.


(BTW, I was surprised at how much I liked Random Hero; but I really couldn't get into Town Doctor Jumbo, though I tried for several episodes.)

I have the anime subscription, and I couldn't really justify the price for dramas because I'm only interested in Japanese. Really, I don't know what's popular in Japan, so I can't request, but right now it just doesn't seem like 'enough stuff.'

I'm going to go-ahead and cancel my membership, too much Korean stuff and not enough Japanese content. It's comical how unbalanced it is on there.

I'll echo that I'm also an Anime-only subscriber and would go full premium if there were more J-Dramas available. I also don't know what's out there but, actually, that's exactly why i would like to see more available. I want to be able to find out what's on, watch stuff, and see what takes my fancy. Just like I do with the Anime.
