Using the waybackmachine, I was able to compile a list of old content that was on Crunchyroll in 2009 before the overhaul.

If anyone else has ever thought seeing the name of something might jog their memory of something they vaguely recall watching, I have a list of the anime, drama series, and music groups of old. There was also a list of games that users had submitted videos for. I'm not going to post it on the forums because I don't know if it would get Crunchy in trouble (and they're long as heck), but if you need it, send me a pm and I can mail you the .txt file.

EDIT: I have uploaded the lists to TextUploader.

Anime- http://textuploader.com/41t8
Drama- http://textuploader.com/41rq
Music- http://textuploader.com/41rp

Enjoy!

Everyone (in the anime industry) knows Crunchyroll used to illegally distribute anime. They reformed and the anime industry accepts them now. The past is the past. The only reason they illegally distributed anime was because there was no legal site to get current (out of Japan the day of) anime subtitled in other countries. It's just like music, if there is no way to buy a song then it is reasonable to assume that distributing it to those who cannot buy it is fair. It was up to the anime industry to change and allow sites to legally stream their content and they did just that. Therefore sites like Crunchyroll took the lead to stream content that aired in Japan the day of with a whole range of language subtitles.

I'm not arguing anything. I just have a list of old stuff available. If you are arguing my reason for not copy/pasting the lists here, then I will change that reason to "long list is long" and leave it at that. Nowhere in my first post were there arguments of any kind.

I just looked back at it and WOW. So much nostalgia.. I remember seeing a picture of the headquarters before they recruited actual workers.

I joined in 09, so while I technically was on "legal" CR at that point, I did learn quickly that they used to show fansubs. It hasn't exactly been glossed over by CR themselves, but it's obviously not openly stated to users that they used to be illegal. Though personally, I don't think anime would be where it is today without fansubs.

I do miss old features like the Crunchyland and the cutesie lil avatars that crunchyland used to have though.

I uploaded Chae Yeon's My Love.

Tsk. It's definitely deleted now.

I remember I used to come here for the scary Asian movies back since even before I joined.

They removed all the scary movies and now I don't really use this site to watch anything anymore. I'm just here for the forums to kill time.

I tried to see if I could crawl my old user page with the Wayback Machine, CR's robots.txt wouldn't let me.

I really wanted to see what exactly my page said after 12 year old me joined the site (under the conditions that I was allegedly 14 at the time lol sorry for lying there CR, though to be fair I did join a few months before I was 13 anyway, so I didn't have that long to go before i was 13 anyway ) because I honestly don't remember what it said, though I have to assume it was a mess of grammatically incorrect gibberish about "IKUTO-KUUUUUN" because i was a 100% weeaboo at the time

That's exactly what I went to the wayback machine for! I couldn't remember some of the names since a lot of them never got big.
