Now that is interesting. How many videos can you access? I get 12 simulcasts and 152 entries in the "shows" display (38 rows of four shows each).

No telenovelas?

I'm more interested in how it differs from Crunchyroll dramas in terms of how many historical K-dramas they've been able to land ... I think its Bridal Mask (30's occupation), Jang Ok Jung, and The Blade and the Petal (at least, I don't see those three at Crunchyroll and they don't show up in a search on Crunchyroll by name.

Five more shows appear when searching for historical dramas at K-Drama versus Crunchyroll, but two of those are actually at Crunchyroll, just not tagged as historical dramas.

I don't know exactly how many I can access I'm just clicking randomly but I'm able to watch all (obviously I get ads) have 12 simulcasts too, and I have total of 152 also divided in 25 rows of 6 and last row of 2
I don't know if that's what you mean with the rows

Yes, that's what I meant by rows (I must have my browser zoomed up more than yours, since mine is displaying in rows of four splash images instead of six). So it looks like you are getting access to everything.

And yet it has been repeated as being US & Canada only. How strange.

Probably, it might also be the display size, I'm using a 23 inch display and get 6 shows by row but I just checked in my laptop and get 4 by row. I know it says US and Canada and that's why is also strange to me, I'm interested in the service but I want to know if it really is available for my country so I can go for it or if is just an error and wait until it is available

Yeah that's what I noticed, Kdrama.com seem to have only K-drama, while Dramafever has bunch of other Asian dramas alongside K-drama, that I already know. But I want to see if there's any different like for example, does Dramafever have this K-dramaA when kdrama.com doesn't have K-dramaA that Dramafever has same applied if kdrama.com pick up kdramaB and Dramafever doesn't have kdramaB on their catalog.


A little off topic but this is for anyone on CR that are fans of Hong Kong dramas particularly shows/dramas from TVB. DF picked up The Hippocratic Crush aka On call 36 hours, you can watch the 10 minute preview on Dramafever's Official Youtube page, this isn't the only HK drama DF picked up. Dramafever has also picked up 2 more TVB dramas from Hong Kong:

Beyond the Realm of Conscience (link on Dramafever)

Lives of Omission (link on Dramafever)

So looks like Hong Kong particularly TVB is joining the drama fad scene aka cashing in on the drama fad K-dramas caused. Looks like the battle of Asian dramas just got more interesting.

when will it be on the roku


I sent them an email a couple days ago and they said:

"We are currently working on the official Roku app and it should be released in the relatively near future."

Of course, Crunchyroll has been saying the same thing about getting HD Anime on the Roku for the past 3-4 years. So who knows when/if it'll ever be available.

Will there be a new "all-access pass" on Crunchyroll that will cover both anime and manga? I'm not a big fan of K-Drama or J-Drama, but I do want to be able to have an account that has both anime and manga associated with it

Do you mean an all-access pass, or an only-drawings pass? Crunchyroll already has an all-access pass, and since the J-dramas are not going away (far from it ... according to ANN, Crunchyroll has a whole new set to announce), that would continue to be anime and manga and drama.

Considering I haven't even touched the drama yet--I'm probably not about to start now. HOWEVER, I do think this is a great idea for those that are interested in K-Dramas. Hopefully it works out well and it will expand to those outside the US and Canada.

I guess that's what Hehaho1830 was asking, but calling it an "All-Access" pass would be extremely confusing, since "all-access" would normally mean everything at a site.

I guess we could imagine "Anime-Plus" memberships for $10, Anime+Drama, no Manga, or Anime+Manga, no Drama, but I suspect they want to keep it simpler than that.
