First it would be nice if we had a warning or an explanation why this happened!

And dont say it is us! I have found two websites that check on a website staus and both said you were down!

If there is a big repair to happen lets us know! I come to accept it we dont answers or expanations!

I hope the bugs get worked out before the Winter 2015 starts!

Their Twitter feed acknowledged the technical issues about 10 hours ago and they just posted an update. They are still experiencing difficulties.

I only see the one update 9 hours ago there seems to be one tweet stating will be fixd very soon seems to be a lack of updates was sort of expecting a simple every few hours a replay even saying still down so i knew they acknowleged the issue. Bit silly as i am sure they are busting their buts to fix it and getting negative impression simply from a 2 min update every few hours that is missing

Unfortunately when a site goes down it is hard for them to communicate from the site itself. This is when I turn to Twitter.

Hey guys, we’re under a DDoS of the same magnitude that Xbox and PSN experienced. We're working hard to fix this, thanks for your patience.

crunchyroll.com is up and working well since early this morning.

crunchyroll.ca is still completely unresponsive.

Fortunately my username/pass combo for the Canadian site work fine on the .com site, so I can still watch my stuff.

I was hearing chatter yesterday that people were just using the uk site. When I checked if it was running - it was. I just figured I could do something else while Hime-chan battled them.

Speaking of ANN, it was also reported that there were attempted DDOS attack on ANN too. The motive seem similar to the other attacks, and I can probably speculate it could be the same group that took down PSN, Xbox Live, and CR. Beside ANN, another user told me that Senkaku Complex has also activated their anti-DDOS protection, so looks like the hacker could be not only going after PSN and Xbox Live but also anime websites like CR, ANN, and Sankaku Complex.

They better not touch Dramafever, and Viki. You don't want to piss off K-drama/Hallyu fans.
