.... i thought Crunchyroll is only a little ways off from the Japanese broadcast release ... how come I found EP 8 on another site quite easily? Just asking though, since one of the series I follow is popular and the other site already released it 8 hours ago and CR will still be releasing it in 10 hours from now...

My point is... I thought we were paying for something faster? Reliable yes, but "As soon as 1 hour on simulcast..." more like 1 day?

I will not say the site I found those on... CR prevents me from mentioning any... just the fact that some other sites are faster than CR is kinda getting me down.

"As soon as" does not mean you will get it 1 hour after it airs. It just means it can be as early as 1 hour. Different licenses can require that CR makes it available x amount of hours or even days after it airs in Japan. Unless it says otherwise I would assume CR puts it out as early as it is allowed to and it is the license that prevents it from going up earlier.

if this show id SNAFU the reason that other sites get it first is that it is a delayed broadcast. SNAFU airs on thursday so fan sub groups get it out before R since its popular
