I am completely fine with any titles coming to crunchyroll really, but I have a weird image that in they pick up all types of animation in the future and then a fanbase war starts on Crunchyroll between people for/against 'anime'/'western animation 'lol

Not sure how I feel about this, don't get me wrong I love some american cartoons (not happy tree friends) however, I can't help but feel that this isn't the direction Crunchyroll should be heading. I come to the site and pay for Crunchyroll for anime (since the drama section is crap now) and that is what I hope my money is going towards, supporting anime in the west.


...Hope they didn't pay extra for this and it was a package deal like others have suggested.

Just to clear it up, this was not a title that we spent significant effort or any money to get. It was, as some of you may have gathered, part of a larger Cinedigm deal from which we netted a lot of other really significant titles for our catalog.


I'm just happy you guys are expanding the catalog.

RWBY made every bit of sense and was extremely exciting to see here. Not sure this makes much sense. I never did enjoy Happy Tree Friends, but I don't mind the addition of it. Mostly. Half of me thinks "gotta expand CR with everything", the other half thinks "don't want to dilute CR into a non-specialized video service".

Also I didn't know the show was still a thing, I thought it's era ended 10 years ago.

I mean, technically it's all anime anyways, I don't see why people are getting upset. :D


Not particularly my cup of tea, but there are people who enjoy these shows. People seriously threatening to cancel their membership from an acquisition they didn't like? lol. If that was the case, I would have canceled long ago (because I'm not going to like every single show that gets picked up). But yeah, way too much overreaction from so many people here.

I was initially confused as to why they would bother streaming it, but if it was part of a bigger deal, that makes a lot more sense to me.

wtf

Glad I'm not the only one who thought that this was pretty random. But I really really dislike happy tree friends, so I think I'll just ignore it completely. Throw it in the, it doesn't exist and it never happen pile. Out of site, out of mind. Where's my flash block at?

Package deal or not, what the actual hell?

I know how this stuff happens, more or less. But I don't get why, given the reactions it is naturally going to generate.

You can't get [email protected]:CG and various things that Funi picked up, but you add non-Japanese titles that are divisive at best and that even some of the non-haters don't really think fits here?

And I can't figure out whether I'm happy or not that isn't available here in the UK. On the one hand, more regional BS which needs to die a rapid death. On the other, it makes it much easier to ignore the show.

There really needs to be something spectacular and all-regions pulled out soon. As there are now enough small issues piling up that a lot of people are starting to get antsy about multiple things at one.

Not that pleased... I hope CR doesn't end up being filled with tons of non-anime related shows. Yes, HTF is funny, but you can watch it for free on youtube, and this is an anime/manga/drama site. I hope nothing more like this gets added. Leave that kind of stuff to the sites it's already available on.

"Happy Tree Friends? What the hell?! I pay for anime, not this!"
Package deal. HTF was not added because they necessarily WANTED it, it was probably thrown in as part of the package they bought. It's actually likely that they could only get the other shows in the package for the price they wanted IF they included HTF.

"Crunchyroll is losing it's roots! I came here for anime, manga and eastern drama, not this western junk!"
As far as I can see, Crunchyroll has stayed true to it's roots. A lot of people will mention RWBY here, as an example of where CR has become a "typical western streaming service", when in actual fact, titles like RWBY were added BECAUSE of thier anime influences.

"Why am i paying for this? I don't even want it!"
Package. Deal. Like mentioned before, HTF was probably included because it was very cheap, free, or because it lowered the price of the package. The price of the premium membership is constant. There wasn't any price-rises due to CR obtaining HTF.

"I hate this! I hate it! CR is corrupting itself! I'm going to end my membership now and return to illegal streaming!"
Just because CR obtained HTF, it doesn't make CR become HTF-centeralized. Cancelling your membership means you lose a LOT of the CR catalog. Writing off the entire CR catalog just because you don't like one show sounds kinda ridiculous, doesn't it?

There. My response to most of the hate messages. I agree, HTF is a strange choice. Frankly, I won't be watching it (i am among the ones who dislike it), but it's not like HTF is going to kill CR
