Hey guys. There is a lot of free anime here and we are very grateful!!! But there is some anime, like BLEACH, which I, for one, really would like to watch for free. There is no point in Bleach costing this much money. I wish you would make it so each member, as a gift, could pick ONE series they want to watch and give the WHOLE series to them free. This may be a futile attempt but I tried right? Well if you guys agrees and have another animas you think should be free post me down below.

It's even less than $7/month is you buy a year-long membership. It's only $5/month then.


There is no point in Bleach costing this much money.

LOL.

$21.00 for me with a prime member ship, $24.00 without. That's 20 episodes. Guess what? You could watch significantly more than that in a month for only $7.00 on Crunchyroll.

In short, CR is a business and already has a ton of free anime available.

I realize you're 13 and may not have a ton of disposable income. But $7.00 is not that much money if you want to just watch one specific show.

And if your parents are against that, sorry, but you gotta respect that, my friend.

Anime is the wrong forum for this. I've moved it to Suggestions / Feedback.

Two thoughts:

#1

Why not ask you Dad to buy you a 3-month Anime membership for 20 bucks: http://www.crunchyroll.com/store/p/82552/Anime-Membership-Gift It's only a 3-month pass and $20 is a great price. In that time, you sit down and marathon all the Bleach you can, which, since you're only 13, you should be able to finish it all in that time.

After your 3-month pass expires, even if you don't finish every Bleach episode, do something nice for your Dad to thank him for compromising (mow the lawn, dig a ditch, etc.).

#2

I hate to post a link to a competitor, but Hulu has 366 episodes of Bleach up free and legal:

- Bleach
- http://www.hulu.com/bleach (homepage)
- http://www.hulu.com/grid/bleach?video_type=episode (all episodes)

- VIZ-Media
- http://www.hulu.com/companies/viz-media (all anime VIZ-Media offers on Hulu)

Hulu streams are Ad supported. You will have to endure a few commercials in order to watch it (as you would anyway on Crunchyroll if you're not a Premium member). But they are legal streams.

Look... Anime is a business. It costs money to write, animate, create, produce, broadcast, and market Anime. It cost Crunchyroll money to license and stream all of these shows. Those costs have to be recouped (gotten back) or it will be difficult to product more Anime. It can't all be available for free.

Cartoons are a business and the cost of doing business has to be passed along at some point.

Hope some of that helps. Good luck.

Cheers.
