Hello,

I've seen that some show I previously watch, such as Bakemonogatari, are now not available in HD and only in 480p, why is that?

I also saw some shows like Hell Girl: Two Mirrors, where commentaries referred to 1080p while I had to watch the show in 480p

Thank you for responding

Like The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, that 480p might be the only copy that crunchyroll got from it's agreements with the companies they it obtained it from. This is mostly from older shows like the one you mentioned as they were obtained with the agreement with releasing the newer seasons of the shows.

Hope that helps.

Thank you, but is there a possibility that a show at first available for 1080p is now not available anymore? Why is that?

A change in whatever agreement that they had with whatever company they got it from.

Bakemonogatari on CR was always only 480p.

Thanks for the info. Kinda strange though, I wondered if it was more about servers issues since why would the company actually do that I wonder..?
