I have known about the site for a long while now but never really checked into it due to me having several streaming sites I use for my anime habit.

After the recent actions taken by Japan on anime/manga sites that stream content, I'm left to wonder what is to become of Crunchyroll and other pay sites distrubiting anime? Will I be left in the dust or are they going to continue putting on my most favoritest shows, One Peice, Naruto, Fairy Tale, etc... To name only a few mind you. I'm extremely worried for the anime/manga industry now that Japan is doing all of this. If CR sticks around and doesn't halt it's popular series, I will most definatly pay money get my anime fix. I'm just really scared and worried to tears that I may lose out on my anime. I've been an otaku since the mid 90's. I can safely say that anime is in my blood. It's definatly a part of me, and this blow to the industry has left me feeling saddened and betrayed. I will continue to watch via Crunchyroll unless they get hacked to bits by the new laws being passed around in Japan.

Crunchyroll is a legal site, there is no reason the Manga-Anime Guardians are going to take this site down.

^ That.

There is no reason to be concerned with CR being legal these days. I am sure if some new law gets passed that conflicts with CR as it is then CR will conform to it as best as it can and continue on.

yeah i think the only people who need to be concerned are pirates, and even then, pirates are stubborn, so >_>

CR should be safe unless CR itself falls apart, or something. anyhow, im not too worried

Awesome. Though I have heard some rumors that certain anime is not allowed on via the MAG. I guess in light of everything happening people are going to get confused, I have no idea though. As far as I can see, the majority of what I want to see is there so i think I'm going to make CR my permanent Anime home and I'll just pray that nothing happens to the site in the forseeable future.

Right, but I'm just scared my one peice/fairy tale and any other anime I will come to enjoy, will go away and I won't be able to keep up with the story's I love so dearly. Again I'll make use of CR. I don't want to pirate like I used to have to :/. I don't condone it but how else do you think we started out on anime :P. I AM thankful, however, to those that helped me get started on anime. Ironically if it wasn't for said pirating, I doubt the boom in anime would have taken place. Although we will never know if it would have happened eventually or not. Here's to anime and hopes it never goes away X-D

What I'm refering to, if you are talkinga bout me, is there is a huge undertaking by Japan to shut down many many fan sub, torrent, and streaming anime sites that don't give money or get money for the anime they stream/distribute. So the only way's to get anime is to wait quite awhile, sometimes years to get anime, or pay for sites like CR, if there are even any other sites LIKE CR, to get their anime from.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong but CR buys the licenses for the shows they air. You can't sell someone something and then still tell them they can't air it. The license can expire and not get renewed and such and you would lose your show that way but there still isn't much to worry about.

I guess I'm just a bit overly worried again, in light of what is happening. I get that it's for pirating but I just have this feeling it will affect things to a great extent. As long as sites like Crunchyroll exists I'll be happy as a clam.

You're just thinking too much in non-legal market (aka pirating)

Crunchyroll is paying for the anime shows to air the same as your cable company is paying to show sports, HBO, and other channels people watch. They're not going to shut down Crunchyroll, same as not shutting down your cable company for putting up shows on your TV as long as they stay in legal practice.

Crunchyroll is legal. There shouldn't be anything to fear......aside from, maybe, something missing from what anime CR streams. I mean, "that one scene" from episode 2 of BTOOOM! was apparently censored.
