I have an idea about what could Crunchyroll could bring to approach more of anime lovers and those who love to watch or show friends anime that they enjoy or plan on watching.

Perhaps a group chat and to link and watch an anime show together.


Each of the users would have the power to pause the show if needed as well as resume playing, once a user pauses or resumes, it does the same action on the other users screen. A small chat on the side as users watch the anime or even full screen the show. There could be a search bar or a link bar, to bring up anime for those who are in wanting to watch and once the anime is chosen, even the next selected episodes will show.


As this idea is brought up, I am wanting to see opinions and other ideas.
If CR is into the idea, I am sure they will have more implanted ideas upon this feature as well.



I hope my examples and explanation was decent.

I've been trying to get something like this going with my friends, actually.

Sounds like fun.

Okay, while AnimeKami may have been just spouting threats of reports, there actually is a reason I've closed this thread - the site you had mentioned would allow people to stream anime to regions that it is not allowed to be viewed in, from what I could see. That's the main reason we can't have those links on here, but I personally love the idea in general - I've suggested a way within CR to allow links that would protect the region locking (because they have to), but let people join together in a Skype voice chat or something to watch with each other. Basically, it would let you post a short link to whatever/username/viewing, and if someone else hit that, assuming they had the rights to see the show, it would link them to your current timestamp.

Anyway, sorry for the close, but if you want to suggest something similar (without the site link that I had to remove) in Site Suggestions, feel free!
