A few weeks ago I told a friend about CR who was using illegal streaming sites to stream anime... And a few days ago he told what he thought about the service. Guess what he said!?! He told me that CR doesn't have any shows and that the streaming quality was bad, when I look at CR they got a lot of anime and manga that's also legal to watch/read... And best of all it's 1080P witch is superior in every way to 240P that the legal streaming site he was using...

So what do you think about that statement? Is it correct or incorrect?

Well they do lack some shows but it's costy to have "everything" so it's understandable and wow the best quality ive seen on a fansub is 480 and that is not even good 1080 here on CR is soild so dunno how any1 can complain about that

Maybe he was using the free version of CR, which only get you SD quality. Regarding the library, it sort of depends on what country you are in, but most likely you will have access to a lot.

Well, if he was using it without a premium account, those adds really make you want to flip some tables.
I don't know about 1080p, since my internet is crap, but some illegal streaming sites actually have better quality than CRs SD and 480p.
As for the amount of Anime, yeah, considering CR has all those legal licensing rules to follow, they really don't have anywhere near the amount of Anime an illegal site has.

So yeah, the legal part aside, for someone that really spends their time on mostly Anime, an illegal streaming site is way better than CR. Or even better, torrents, since you can get your 1080p that way, and have the eps stored up too.
I still have my CR account tho, don't know why, guess I'm an idiot.

I think your friend didn't really even use the site. The nuber of shows is exelent and they are constantly adding new ones all the time. I don't really have an oppinion on 1080p vs whatever sence I can't watch anything above SD thanks to my internet provider (got to love those monopolies) But some of the best things about this site are 1. The forums 2. The queue system 3. Store discounts and sales. The only real negative about it is that I can't watch some shows because they aren't in my area but that isn't really CR's fault. I love this site and will never go back to terrible illegal sites. Also guest passes are great too 48YQQVGTQT4 QETKMZ7GG7G

Also having a stable sub group is great.

I remember when I was watching one piece awhile back with fansubs. I was annoyed each time a different group did them, because they all have differences.

But of this season, CR has all the anime I wanted minus four FUNi got.

I'm also lucky enough to watch in 1080p.

So CR is great.

The only time Crunchyroll is bad is when the anime I want to watch isn't on here lol.
But even then, Crunchyroll is my go-to place for all things anime and news. Well, I use Twitter for news a bit more than Crunchyroll, but..
Bah, now I'm just rambling..

Also, sometimes you can't watch anime here because of where you live (I can't watch Nourin here, for example), but that's why I have FUNimation lol.

He showed me a site that according to him had better quality then CR and let me tell you that his statement made me laugh... It wasn't even close to the SD that CR has.

Because supporting legal distribution means even more get brought over and in a bigger selection. 20 ~ years ago when I first got into anime you prayed if you could get a tape for 30 bucks with two episodes on it. So 60$ a year is great.

The only thing that's better with the illegal stream sites is the amount of animes. For everything else i think CR is better.

You're supposed to want quality over quantity am I right?
