Really though. Personally i think crunchyroll would make quite a profit if they were to make a licensing agreement to stream movies. Especially (i know ill get alot of hate for this but) Dragonball Z, those movies were absolute classics. I would definitely get a membership (if i already didn't have one) if they put those 12 or 13 movies up! The nostalgia...
Furthermore, i feel that most movies are not directly correlated to the actual plot of anime, meaning if you were trying to get a supposed friend on a certain anime and didn't want to waste a load of time to watch one of the movies i.e Bleach.
Also, OVA's are so underestimated! They're normally really neat to watch and a crazy change of pace.
For those interested in Bleach, look up Memories in the Rain. Its a interesting back story of Ichigo's mom's death.
Many people also haven't seen the Naruto Shippuuden OVA [Naruto vs Sasuke] which IMO is freaking epic!

Anyways, just my thoughts.. Let me know what you guys think!

On a another note that's somewhat related... Why don't we have Full Metal Alchemist on here yet!

I would pay a 50% more if CR added the OVAs for their respective series already licensed. Sadly, it's nearly impossible.

Crunchyroll does get some OVAs and movies sometimes. For example, Crunchyroll has the OVAs/specials for Durarara and has OVAs for Girls und Pazer. But do I wish they could get more or at least stream them for a limited time.

I would love it though if CR could premier movies for like a week when they're premiering in Japan, I think that would be really cool.

ovas are purposely not released in crunchyroll. In japan, ovas come in special manga bundles and things like that. this is why we cant have ova in cr. Certain cases allow ovas to be on crunchyroll, like squid girl ovas

I think we should get free coffee and healthcare with our membership.

I just checked, doesn't seem like they had them. I could have sworn to god that I saw multiple news articles of CR saying they had a GuP OVA. Apparently I'm just making this up.

EDIT: Ok, so I just checked the wiki and maybe this is what I'm getting confused on:

The series initially aired in Japan between October and December 2012, with two additional episodes airing in March 2013 and an original video animation released in July 2014

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girls_und_Panzer

Maybe those two additional episodes is what I'm getting myself confused with? Idk....
