Hey..

So i took the plunge today and subbed to CR for a year. Have no idea where to start, so much to watch and not sure whats good and whats not.

Was a little disappointing that Sword Art Online season 1 isn't available for me in Australia though, which i find wierd as episode 1 is the first "sample" episode i watched through my Apple TV box. So i started on season II instead.

Any tips on whats a good for a new to CR user to check out ? Grew up watching Astro Boy, Battletech, Geforce (can't remember the name but i do remember the watch thingies that they said Transmute into), Akira, Sailor Moon.

So if those give an idea of the sort of thing i like or not, or just some MUST SEE titles..

Cheers

Isn't available to you? That sucks mate, sorry to hear that.
Pretty damn strange.

Uhh, I guess you wanna start with the "recommend me an Anime thread"

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-7173/recommend-me-an-anime-read-first-post

Because for some reason, threads like "count to a million" is a-ok, but specifically asking for an anime to be recommended to you is a big no-no, so chances are your thread here will be locked by some of satan's helpers as soon as they get a hold of it and will automatically redirect you to the thread I just pointed out, so hey... I did satan's work for him.
Cheers.

I recommend you to download this addon called Hola. You'll be able to watch everything that's available to offer on this website then.

Madman the Australian and New Zealand distributor who owns the rights to it asked for it to be removed from here due to it being on there own site animelab.com now. It's on there in both sub and dub formats (Requires a free to make account and is currently free to watch only requiring a ~30second ad for a madman product at the beginning of a episode) as well as a bunch of other shows most not on here.

Welcome! As others have mentioned, we have a special Recommend Me an Anime thread ("stickied" near the top of the Anime forum), so that's a good place to post your requests whenever you are looking for more recommendations.

Glad to see someone was able to provide info on where to watch SAO legitimately in Australia. (I'm pretty sure the change of rights on CR was fairly recent.)

With that taken care of, I'm closing this thread, since individual threads that are primarily for getting personal help/advice aren't allowed in the discussion forums.
