Since the first time I encountered Crunchyroll's website, I've wanted to search by the criteria of Genre + Season.

For example, all Comedies from Winter 2015.

However, I seem to be unable to do that. Selecting Genre, simply returns an alphabetical list. Selecting Season returns also an alphabetical list. There doesn't appear to be a way to combine these criteria into a single query.

There's a lot more criteria available to filter on that seems to be going primarily ignored that's visible on series and episode pages:

* Genre
* Season
* Publihser
* Studio
* Subtitle Language
* Audio Language
* Tags (On epsidodes, and series)
* Availability date (Free/Premium)
* Rating
* Simulcast status
* Cast and Crew

Some of these things are available in limited capabilities, some I added. A complete centralized location for these things with checkboxes, and edit fields would be nice. It seems like a waste to have all of these things tracked on the website and obviously in a database, but no way to easily find items matching multiple specific criteria.

Am I missing something? Is this already available and I just don't know where to look?

I agree Crunchyroll needs a better search and tagging system on the main page. In the meantime, Crunchyroll user asharka created a Group that has a more detailed index of shows here:

- Rotten Sushi
- http://www.crunchyroll.com/group/Rotten_Sushi (Group landing page)
- http://www.crunchyroll.com/group/Rotten_Sushi/pages?extra_param=8590017835 (Index Page)

If you click on the Index Page link, it'll give you a more advanced breakdown of anime on CR. It doesn't have everything you listed, but it does breakout Publishers, Animation Studios, and a more in depth listing of Tags.

Thanks for the link. Not what I'm looking for though. Hopefully I'll have better luck in the feedback forum.
