Legal streaming sites such as CR, Funi, Hulu, Netflix, or others are an extremely awesome and important thing to the industry of anime.
First off cost wise it's very inexpensive, if you want to watch a lot of anime, to purchase a sub to many of these sites. It sure as heck beats what you used to have to do to keep it legal (Buy a 60-100$ DvD that you may not be 100% sure about liking) Thus many folks went to illegal forms of streaming because it was too expensive to do that. With sites like CR you not only get quick access to new shows but it's cost is very minimal for what you get.

On top of that if you truly love Anime and want it to flourish and continue then using legal sites as much as you can will only benefit Anime further down the line. Creating an Anime is an extremely expensive process and especially out side of Japan it's not very accessible due to how expensive it is to make and market. Supporting licencing companies like CR and Funi, even though they may have some flaws, will open up a lot more opportunities for Anime in the future. I personally am really grateful for sites like CR and i'll use them over an illegal site any day. I would never want to rob someone of their deserved money just because i cant afford to watch it. That's the same as me walking into a store while no one is watching me and taking some i like and then feeling justified that it was okay just because no one saw me.

Sure there will always be illegal ways to watch shows and i wouldn't condemn people for doing it, because i think most of us have at some point (Including myself) But now that so much Anime is so easily accessible for a relatively low price I wouldn't ever go back to using illegal when i know i can support the industry that i want to survive.

People have their own preferences. Sure, he could be too cheap to pay 6.95 a month or 60 .00 a year, but that's his choice. Just let him know that he's not doing anything to support the industry by streaming the way he does.

I could get free anime all day if i wanted but i choose to use Crunchyroll because its a great service. Plus if you like something you should support it.

Let's start with the fact that most illegal sites has videos just riped from CR. And if we're talking about English sites they have even the same subs. Group which is doing that has it even written on their main page. It's funny because this is how I've learned about CR.
So if video appears on illegal site almost at the same time that on CR it means it is rip from Crunchyroll. Making fansubs for sure takes more time than few minutes.
So since illegal sites have videos ripped from CR, how can they be better there?
I could understand if your friend watch it on it because of Swedish subs, but on that picture you've showed it was English subbed.
So I guess CR is bad for him because stealing is free

Btw. Also ask him did he enable video smoothing and subtitles smoothing (right click on video) without these videos on CR really look crappy.

I'de like to point out that Crunchyroll got pretty much everything i wanted this season. So CR is definitely not bad.

If monopolizing anime is wrong, I don't want to be right

This thread isn't about monopolizing anime so... Just why are you bringing that up?
