I'm surprised no one has mentioned a Crunchyroll podcast.

It'd be a great alternative to disseminating information through forum postings and blog-style articles, and could happily complement the news section of the site (and the CR news app).

What's more, a podcast could also serve as an additional platform / hub for members of the Crunchyroll community to voice their opinions and interact with one another. Just looking at the comments under an episode of any popular series shows that visitors have an appetite for sharing opinions. Everything could be moderated through the hosts' agendas and their ability to control the flow of communication as they please (email, chat, Facebook, Skype, etc.)

It could also serve as a tool for promoting CR, stimulating interest in the back catalogue, and bringing an added element of taste-making to a community that likes to discover new shows and has a lot of faith in CR's ability to act as a curator of 'good' anime.

I think CR is missing a trick through the absence of something like this. Get some honest, relatable hosts, inject some entertainment (and the occasional controversy) and something like this would be beloved for years by all.

Yes, there are plenty of anime podcasts out there already for people to choose from, but I think there's room for a CR-inspired/specific one. Do it!


EDIT: After writing this I went back to the home page and noticed some chatter about the @CrunchyReport. This seems like a cool idea. Hope it works out. Would still like to see an official CR (audio) podcast though!

At least 720P HD through the Android app. I know you can get around it by using flash through a browser but it is kind of cumbersome to do it that way.

Xbox One app. Not a fan of switching back to the 360 to watch my Crunchyroll simulcasts but I assume it's in the works.

That is probably more of a problem from FUNi, since they are the ones who have the back catalog.

Quoting both of you here since its answering the same question pretty much. This really isn't CR's fault as much as it is the show from Japan, usually the stations in Japan will censor it more than CR would. Since CR doesn't do home releases like FUNi does, they rarely get the unedited versions of the episodes to replace the edited episodes with. So doubt CR will get much more in the way of uncensored shows.

I know. However the question was "What Would You Like Crunchyroll to Improve/Add?" I answered honestly

Able to mute CR members.


If you use Google's Chrome web browser, CR has an Extension that allows you to Block CR users (works as a "mute"):

- https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cr-queue0/onkdfchaiebkbhlbcdgbemkblolppign

It gives you a "Block This User" option when viewing their Profile (blue box):



It's not a complete answer to your request since you need to be using the Chrome web browser, but in case your are, that extension will help you out. I use it frequently when viewing series threads in the Anime forum. Good way to cut down on spoilers since some people here are serial spoilers.

Ohhhhhh that is so helpful, thank you.

There needs to be a stealth mode button that upon activation, lets your posts directed towards other people to go unnoticed for a random amount of time. When the notification does show up, it's a picture of a B-2 bomber that starts at a vanishing point and soars seemingly over your head. Then the screen lights up in a glorious conflagration with a detonation noise that erupts on whatever sound thing the user is using at full volume. Once the virtual fire dies down, a notification will appear in the top box as it normally does.

Like the aforementioned stealth mode.

You could bump my (very similar) queue request summary suggestion thread here to give this topic more attention in the help section of the forums that is specifically designated for suggestions and feedback...

Honestly, I'm not trying to be snarky or anything here, I'm just completely curious why this keeps coming up. There's a devoted app for anime, and a separate devoted app for manga, and another separate app just for News reading, so why is using a web browser app to visit the forums with a bookmark or even devoting a home page, something people don't apparently like to do?

1. A way to mark-and-hide as a spoiler the spoilers that other users have posted unmarked.

2. Improve ad timing, for example in the last episode of Anohana, the ads come up at inappropriate times. The timing could be better.

Think of it like this. Some people really enjoy viewing the forums on a daily basis. If you are at work and only have a break every now and then, every minute counts. With the mobile version of CR website not having a "Forum" tab you need to go to the full site, forcing you to rescale pages to read things constantly. These minuscule things can eat up a moderate portion of your already limited break time. I for one would enjoy being able to conveniently browse the forums on one of my 15 min breaks during the day.
