A suggestion to implement a simple and easy to implement yet significant feature, a 'lights off' button.

The colour scheme of the website is extremely bright and cheery, which is generally fine, but can be very jarring and off-putting when watching shows without fullscreening, particularly darker or more serious shows, sometimes I even find myself switching to another site to watch certain shows because of this. I suggest implementing a button to make the background plain black or dark grey, or just changing the colour scheme of the page to be darker, giving a cinema effect. If you insist, crunchyroll, it can be made a premium only feature, giving more incentive to upgrade

An example where this has been successfully implemented is at animefushigi, which has a 'light' and 'dark' toggle setting, changing the colour scheme, which had greatly improved the atmosphere.

I am sure I am not the only one whom has had this cross their minds, and I hope that you will consider implementing this feature

First: Suggestions will probably be seen in Suggestions first before General discussions.

Second: You might get a mod hammer for saying another website, which I think is against the rules.

Third: Maybe it's just me... but what is wrong with just fullscreening? I haven't seen a series yet that looks better without fullscreen... so maybe I just don't understand that part...

Hi,

Locking this as a dupe of your version in http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-834275/suggestion-implement-a-lights-off-feature, hope you don't mind!
