Why must we live in a world where we can't trust our fellow man on an auspicious day that many choose to belittle their fellow man.

If this is a joke, I can honestly jump on the whole "cancel my account" bandwagon. I couldn't watch the fansubs because of how awful they were, and the fact that they wouldn't support the series at all.

PLEASE DON'T LIE TO US, OUR FEELINGS ARE AS FRAGILE AS SNOWFLAKES CRUNCHYROLLLLLLLLLL.


I dont understand this line of thinking, Namco Bandai is releasing the video game here in America end of this month and other western countries, and the manga came, so I highly doubt "copyright band names" is a reason to imagine that this is a crunchyroll prank.

It is a little odd that ANN still hasn't posted about this (they've posted other stories since this announcement went up). Seems like something they'd jump on if it was real but not go along with if it was a goof (I somehow doubt Zac B is a big April Fools guy).

Sometimes ANN are just slow at posting irregular timed announcements, I can remember a few cases where they didn't post CR licenses for around half a day.

Have you not been reading the posts before us? There are plenty of changes being made to the games and manga that get introduced outside of Japan because of COPYRIGHT.

It's as clear as the sun in the sky on a bright day.

The fact that they posted at April 1st 12:00am makes it seem like an April Fools. But for some of the reasons posted above, and the fact that it would be too cruel otherwise, I'm going to assume that it's true. And I think the actual April Fools joke is trolling us into thinking that it's an April Fools joke.

Man, you guys are playing with fire if this isn't legit. Then again, a prank like this would probably piss the Japanese off something fierce, so I'm inclined to believe this at face value.

I think it's more that this maybe-April-Fools-prank opened the legendary can of worms. Personally, at least, I think Crunchyroll's handling of the last seasons (Winter especially) has been less than satisfactory, from my point of view of an UK user. This season, Jojo's just one example of the "big" titles. I assume they're going to get at least Mushishi S2, since they already got the OVA. But the big "quality" things are going to be stuff like Knights of Sidonia, Ping Pong, and possibly Captain Earth. Mahouka is going to be highly popular too, though I doubt I'll be interested in it. My point is: if CR keeps with the current policy of keeping lots of fluff and leave the few good titles (or at least: the kind of titles that interest me) to the competition, I may want to cancel my account. This winter I only got to watch Silver Spoon, because they didn't get neither Space Dandy, Noragami, nor Zvezda for my region - not to speak of Kill la Kill. So maybe I'm just not part of the demographic CR is trying to specialize in, I don't know, I just feel like the offer's not been much up to snuff. If this announcement is real, and is followed by licensing Stardust Crusaders, then I'll happily withdraw everything I said.

I agree with you on this. Finding the content to be lacklustre is a perfectly valid reason to unsubscribe, but not being able to watch one show and being okay with everything else is a pretty stupid reason to stop using such a fantastic service like Crunchyroll.
