Is it intentional that all of a sudden the recently updated anime page only shows like four or five shows? (only three right now actually, Hunter x Hunter used to be there though). I always use this page to get to my daily shows or make sure I haven't missed anything that has recently come out but now I guess I'm going to have to use the much less intuitive and visually appealing/helpful calendar for that, which is really unfortunate.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Appears they are getting ready for the next season already... Perhaps jumping the gun a bit, although there's been a lot more shows to keep track of than in the past...

You could alternatively use the RSS feed page that keeps up to date as soon as new episodes of all shows come available, either by accessing it directly in a browser, or by setting it up as intended with an RSS reader..

http://feeds.feedburner.com/crunchyroll/rss/anime

Edit: You know, I think that page is just a victim to how many episodes of RK were recently added, a glitch of sorts because shows with such volume haven't been added very often or at all.

There were so many RK episodes that some array limit got exceeded and simply pushed anything more than a day or so off the back end. I'm going to predict that as the next week goes by, the page will become repopulated.

At least, that is, until they start releasing the back history for one-piece... Then it will likely lose it again, unless they change something in how it gets tracked...

I still prefer the RSS feed, because the particular reader app for Chrome I use (called simply "RSS Feed Reader") keeps the history in an ongoing fashion independently of the web page limitations. In the reader app, I can still scroll down and see the last week or so of releases before the RK ones blotted out the sun, even though they have fallen off the web pages. (I do still have to scroll past those though).

I was wondering this as well... I have never seen it like this before. :/ A little annoyed since that is the way I find and watch the shows and know that they are released without having to go search for them.

You can look at the state of the RSS feed right now to see why it isn't quite as desirable as just going to the updated page (hello, almost 200 Rurouni Kenshin entries).

That certainly makes sense NavyCherub. Makes more sense than them simply clearing the list.

It's inconvenient. A remedy would be very welcome.

I filed a report on the matter via the Contact Us link (http://www.crunchyroll.com/help?topic=contact):

Hello... The Updated page (http://www.crunchyroll.com/videos/anime/updated) isn't working. There's an open thread on the matter here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-831961/updated-anime-page Any thoughts or updates on when the page might be functioning correctly again would be great. Thanks.


I'm sure they're aware of it and working on a solution.

Have the same problem and use it the exact same way
I have most the shows i liked queued up but I use it to watch when certain shows I didn't like get enough on them to check them out after I'm done... Also use it for shows I haven't checked out due to watching enough as it is. and I wil pick them up when I finish off a series using this page.

have more than just today's update was very convenient. They need to set it for 7 days again :D

I await a response from the team.

Looks like the website version of the Updated Anime is working decently now, but I wish my iPad/PS3 versions worked properly.. Hope there's an answer soon from CR. It'd be nice.
