So I'm a fairly new member to CR. I'll start by saying hello. Herro

When I discovered this site I went for the trial, needless to say it didn't take long to get my sub. Since the day I threw my money at my screen I've been able to enjoy the release of Brynhildr in the Darkness, No Game No Life, and soon GGO (SAO II) along with the rest of the world. Although I'm quite pleased with CR's service so far, aside from some buffering issues, I recently decided to re-watch some of my favs. This is where a foul taste entered my mouth.

Upon searching for Air, Bamboo Blade, Cowboy Bebop, DBZ, FMA/FMAB, GIS:(insert here), even Princess Mononoke and this is just to name a few, all of my search hits came up empty with mere discussion pages . I can't help but wonder why are so many wonderful anime missing from the catalog. Are they simply not able to obtain the required license's to do so or what? Surely this has cost them some un-subscriptions.

Im pretty sure most of the shows you mentioned are licensed by Funimation. Thus crunchyroll cannot stream them, since the license to do so, was acquired by Funi

Funimation always gets most of the best animes out there...here you will find mainly magical girl anime, or ecchi....main reason why I stopped my premium.

Yea. It becomes first come, first view. Kurosagi used to be here. Now, it's gone.

The site used to have tons of videos from fansubs. It's legit now. I miss watching funny CFs around here and Dattebayo fansubs.

You got the gist of it. CR can't open the licensing b/c they're not a big enough name. They're not a big enough b/c there's not enough premium members financially backing them + demonstrating popularity. The potential premium members aren't signing up b/c CR doesn't have a big enough name to host the shows they want to watch.

Yet, you still became a premium member like myself.

I like you. You rebel you.

I went to funimation and it looks pretty clunky and weird, sure it has cowboy bebop and all those really famous titles that everyone wants to watch, but it's a double edge sword, famous titles like Cowboy Bebop DBZ etc .. can be * cough * illegally * cough* downloaded anywhere, i haven't looked into it but does Funimation even have software for smart phones and video games ? because i love CR due to the fact that i can watch it on my iphone and PS4

This place got Rurouni Kenshin... Doesn't get any better than that, imo.

Interesting, well CR will continue to get my support.
I've enjoyed the service so far and although I haven't really checked out the competition (aside from browsing a bit and using their sites search functions) something about CR feels right.

They have two Funimation apps.
One of them is free but has adds. The other one is ten bucks with no adds but basically the same thing.
