Okay so i was going through a big list of anime i want to watch and crunchyroll don't have half of the ones i want to watch, for example i wanted to watch "date a live" but they don't have it. i suggest that crunchyroll needs to add a corner where people put in the anime they want and people vote to have it put up on the site. it's like a win win thing here, people get anime they want to see and crunchyroll gets the views and all the other stuff they want. anyone else feel the same? and sorry mod or admins that find this post in the wrong area this forum page is soo confusing as well...

That's a great idea, and guess what...it exists. Head on over to the CR Premium Members group, join if you haven't already, and find the What series/movie/drama/manga would you like to see on CR thread stickied near the top of the group forum.

Read others' suggestions there for what they want to see, and add your own!

FYI, Date A Live was licensed by Funimation here in North America, and by Anime on Demand in the UK. This would make it essentially impossible for CR to get it for those countries, and most probably uneconomical for any others.

There's a good chance that similar circumstances are confronting a lot of the other anime you want to watch though. The biggest opportunity to expand is probably with older shows, either from before the anime boom in North America, or whose Western publishers have allowed their license to lapse. But that's not likely to be as attractive for new viewers as a current simulcast.

I had noted you had specifically requested that title in another topic.

The best bets would be with titles not licensed by Funimation or Viz, and titles licensed by Sentai, Media Blasters, or NIS America (with the caveat that those would only be available to the U.S. & Canada). For NISA, at least, the pattern seems to be that if it appears on Hulu, CR will have 6-12 months later.
