Goddamn CrunchyRoll you have a good sense of humour. Give the government workers anime so they can fill the time of the shutdown watching it.
Stay Classy CR.


I like this comment.

This is very kind of Crunchyroll. I am a U.S. government employee on furlough right now (also a long-time fan of anime and kdramas), and I would just like to say thank you. I would also like to remind some commentators that the U.S. government has three branches (judicial, executive, and legislative), and it is the executive branch that is currently suffering. The executive branch employees do not have a thing to do with congressional politics and budget approval. Remember when you complain about the ineffectiveness of government that if you are speaking about congress, they are not representative of the civil servants who are struggling to pay their bills right now. Please also remember that congress is getting paid regardless. I would also like to add, though everyone is entitled to their own opinions and personal experience, the agency I work for is highly efficient in both work product and preventing waste. We are not all like the IRS or GSA, and in fact, as tax payers and government employees, we are disgusted and infuriated when we see abuse as well. I would say based on my nine years of federal experience there are very few Hasebes because at the end of the day we answer to congress, and I think we all know how much they like federal employees.

While I don't work for the Federal Government, I do work for my County's Legislature and using our email for stuff like this is frowned upon. That being said, CrunchyRoll isn't blocked by our IT department!! This is an awesome idea though!

I'm a federal employee and on furlough. I'm with the Dept. of Commerce, Export Assistance Center. Being furloughed is a bummer, especially with three kids and a mortgage. I'd like to thank Crunchyroll for thinking of us. I hope CR will allow me this: Since I'm furloughed, a plug for my ebook would be nice. Sales of it would help me out (no pay during a furlough), as would spreading the word about it. It's anime themed and I'd imagine fans would love it. Heck, I'm a fan myself. I won't post the name here for fear of spamming and to be courteous. I'm sure you clever guys can find it easily enough.

If you are currently furloughed do not remotely log into your account at work because you could be fined $5,000 dollars for doing so. Just email them from your personal account and give them your work email for reference.

This is a nice idea :)

Props to government workers everywhere!!

Hopefully Congress gets its head out of its ass so government employees can start being paid again.

I pray to God that there is a second season of SERVANT X SERVICE. It was a well written done anime.
Couldn't help but laugh at some of the episodes.

I think you should do something like this for those serving the US in the military (too).

I think this is a pretty nice / cool idea and I give props to CR for doing this ^_^

While I do not work for the government I am a meteorologist and know a lot of people who are furloughed, or are working and saving lives at the NWS but have no idea when they will actually see a paycheck. So I am pretty sure just seeing a little something to show that they are appreciated will go a long way.
