Without the membership discount I'm not sure I'll renew. I don't watch enough content on Crunchyroll to justify it. I will however be signing up for Funimation since they have a wonderful streaming deal right now. $55 for the remainder of 2014, and all of 2015, plus Fairy Tail and One Piece.... sold!

yeah, I saw that. Looks like a decent deal. Little limited on the shows though, a lot look like 13 year old style stuff (besides psycho pass)

If you don't do the membership offer then I'll be downgrading to anime only in march. In the end it's about the same price and I don't use the drama or manga that much because I have crunchyroll and viki which seem to run much cleaner than your drama, don't ask me why. Sad times.

My membership ended a few days ago, and was hoping for a black friday deal. WHELP...guess I'll have to wait and see...

Most of the figures I want are preorder products anyway =/ And some others don't have the little bag icon. I thought about getting a month of anime only just to take advantage, but meh...

So no membership discount this year? Not gonna lie, that is a little disappointing. Well, here is hoping there is one for Christmas or something.


Me too, my membership expired on Monday. I waited all week for the discount. I guess I wasted my time waiting for something that wasn't going to happen.

I have been with Crunchyroll from the very beginning. I have renewed my membership every year on Black Friday for as long as you have offered it. I can't believe you would get rid of the discounted membership. I am disappointed and angry. I won't ever buy anything from your store. I come to you for the anime not the merchandise. Please reconsider this!

Wow...I'm incredibly disappointed.

Funimation's deal was pretty good at 55$ with a 25$ coupon to use in their store on top of their black friday sales. And all we're getting is 30% off in the store for the weekend? Are you kidding me? How is that a "spectacular" deal?

Ugh. You know I strongly considered cancelling after the Roku debacle, but only didn't because I was locked into a pretty decent yearly membership at the time, right? If you majorly **** up something like that again, with no special deal on the table I will have absolutely zero motivation to stay subscribed. And even now as it is I'm not sure if I want to renew my monthly membership after my time is up on December 10.

Well I was fully expecting to give you 50-ish dollars today/tomorrow, but instead I guess I'll have some decisions to make in the next week or so.

I suspect they won't, or if they do it'll only be because of a massive backlash.

I say that because last year I didn't even know about the deal, until a mod told me to look out for a month beforehand. Whereas this year, the few posts that mentioned it where met with "Though at this point in time we do not have any details that we will be doing the same Black Friday Deal again this year. Please keep an eye on our Site News for future updates!"

ya but they never said they wouldn't I will be upset to id they don't but people are acting like they promised to always do this sale or that they are trying to rip people off. the sale was something they wanted to do it. honestly last years black friday discount costed more then the year before. they may not be able to afford all the people buying it that way

They can't. I talked to a guy at an anime convention I went to that was a part of the Crunchyroll booth and he said they lose a lot of money from the Black Friday annual deal. When you compare that to how many posts I have seen of people threatening to switch to other methods though, this may make them lose even more! I hope they think of something. I would hate to see the quality of crunchyroll go down from all the loss in sales because of this.

They've managed it badly though, they would have been better off having the deal but cutting it back from last years 40% to 20%, and announcing in January they weren't continuing Black Friday deals going forward.

Always manage your customer's expectations

I had wondered about that. I don't watch the drama so I will just get the anime one. I wish they let people know themselves though
