Hello everyone! Im a new user of the site so bare with me here but i wanted to ask about this because of something that happened with some friends of mine. Basically i have been watching anime for about a year now and using crunchyroll for few months. Anyway i was asked by a few of my friends who are more lets say "hardcore" anime fans then i what site i use to watch anime and when i told them crunchyroll they were not to happy to say the least XD. Calling it gay and all that Jazz so it got my thinking is this site seen as the sword art online for watching anime. The Whole " i hate it because its popular" story or am i just looking to deep into things. Also can i just say of the few people i have interacted with on the site so far this place is great

People who use gay as a derogatory term tend to be dumb.

This and I imagine that your friends are watching anime illegally. Usually pirators bash most anime streaming sites and since Crunchyroll is the most known one it gets most of the hate.

I've seen more people criticize other streaming sites like Hulu. Me being one of them. Their player is just awful in my humble opinion. Sounds to me like these people might be "hardcore" fansub fans. The type of people who think it's some kind of sell out deal thing to watch official streams of shows.

People don't like paying $6.95 a month. If you're a jobless teen I can see your point, but if you're just too cheap to spend that much you get no pity from me.
On another forum people were complaining that Crunchyroll doesn't do a good job with subtitles. They were complaining that sometimes the honorifics aren't included in the subtitles and that ruined the experience for them. Idiots...

I'm cheap & don't pay for an account - but I'll take the ads & wait to watch stuff a week.

I don't know much about the greater fan community to know if people don't like CR, but I do.

Man do I get tired of hearing people complain like that.
1# Be glad that the shows are even getting a decent sub release
2#If it sucks so bad just learn conversational Japanese. It can be done in 6 months if you're just focusing on speaking and understanding with out learning to read and write it.*not the preferred method but it works"

I find people who watch the same show seems to be over critical over how someone watches it. Now if you are getting said shows illegally, then I have a problem because in the end I end up being the one paying more for the DVD, book, cd, etc. but for Crunchyroll a monthly fee isn't too bad.

Despite being one of the people who dislikes crunchyroll, I've never come across something like that. Most anime fans like crunchyroll and say "I'll pay for a subscription when I have the money." Of course, they never do but nonetheless, in real life most anime fans I know don't look down on crunchyroll. I'm the only person I know who has a problem with them and I'm also the only one subscribed to it!

Crunchyroll's subs are usually "just OK", and the A/V quality from streaming sites in general (for everything, not just animu) typically isn't as good as you can get. If you have a hard-on for quality I can see the reason for ragging on CR. I use both so I kind of understand what they're getting at, but I still pay my subscription since it's the best (legit) service there is.

I would say out of all the official English localizers out there, Crunchyroll has some of the highest quality subs. Granted, not all of their subs are high quality *coughyuukiyuunawayuushadearucough* but overall the best legal subs you're going to find are the ones here.

I've used Netflix to watch some anime before I knew what Crunchyroll was, and I honestly don't care what anybody has to say about that.

As others said in this thread. They might be watching the pirated version. Or they might just dislike paying some money to watch shows.

Me? I watch animes here mostly because it's convenient. I will eventually get a Netflix account to expend but I prefer this to using less legal means to get content or that god aweful Funimation website. At least here I don't need to hunt down the dam javascript and cookie to play the video. Here I just enable javascrips on crunchyroll.com and the video plays... I also like the user experience of this website.I would really like that the PS4 app would always work and that I would not need to change the site's language to French to watch Selector spread Wisoxx but oh well...
