I really, really hate being me right now. I used to watch K-ON! on here, and then it went away. Now in the middle of watching Nichijou, and re-watching Haruhi the company's take the licence or what ever. I mean I appreciate the great selection you guys have on here as it is, but there just isn't any Kyoani which is my favorite animation studio. I blame the other company's for taking the licences to pretty much all of Kyoto's work, but isn't there anything you can do? I mean I can't be the only one on here who is really saddened be the loss of 3 great Kyoani works(Lucky Star, Nichijou, Haruhi). I know that they will be watchable on other sites, but I outright refuse to watch Anime on any other site. Most of the reason why I love Crunchyroll so much is the players, and how well they work on my phone and my computer. My phone is a piece of crap, but it still plays the Anime flawlessly. Even though my computer is above average specs it still has trouble loading most other sites, even Youtube, but with Crunchyroll no problem. Well anyways I really hope they will return with in the next year, but with as greedy as these company's are these days I don't see that happening(See K-ON!).

And I swear if the release of Nichijou is Eng Dubbed I am gonna put a turn key in my back, and when you turn it I explode.

WOW I feel your pain man. Just yesterday, I placed Lucky Star on my queue because a friend recommended it. Oh well back to the basis (if you know what i mean)!

Crunchyroll is awesome unfortunately many don't subscribe and they just can't compete revenue wise with big publisher like Funimation, Sentai, Viz, etc. I wished Crunchy became a publisher as well that way they could undoubtedly give us the best of both worlds and keep the anime they have on catalog more easily!

After two weeks without internet I came on CR to find nichijou was taken down. I was gutted because I didn't have a chance to re-watch it one last time

well, I don't really think the people at Crunchyroll can actually prevent them from taking down series. That's the pain of competition. Personally I like Crunchyroll and that's why I decided to subscribe. But I doubt other companies who make their profits off of sales, like this format so much. It's always been difficult getting content in Europe (at least the country where I live), but the only thing we can do is wait and hope for Crunchyroll to become bigger.

It's though to read some great series (I love Lucky Star) aren't on here (anymore). But they might return in the future or perhaps something even better replaces them. Sorry for adding nothing constructive, but if you don't hope, there's nothing to go for!

off-topic: That probably has to do with the quality of the screen. There's a lot more to load on a big monitor in comparison to a small phone screen. So it could be your internet connection or perhaps you have a very old graphics card which isn't able to load the player well. Try putting it on lower quality and see if that helps /offtopic

The OP was talking about his flawless streaming so it was somewhat on topic imo lol.
But thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it.

I too feel your pain of not being able to watch or re-watch a series. However, there is a thread already announcing the removal of certain titles:

Please continue there :( :(
