Hello, Crunchyroll World!

I've been enjoying Crunchyroll recently on Android devices. Thank you all for your hard work!

While the app works just fine, it is not easy to filter the available titles. I'd love to be able to search for directors and other crew. For instance, I have no idea which titles you have with music by Yoko Kanno.

I noticed I can do this type of search on your website(http://www.crunchyroll.com/search?o=m&r=t&q=yoko+kanno), but the 52 results are not very helpful: for instance, I see in the search results "Keion K ON!"(http://www.crunchyroll.com/library/Keion_K_ON!/) which has "Yoko Hikasa" but no "Kanno".

If I search only for "Kanno" (http://www.crunchyroll.com/search?o=m&r=t&q=kanno) I get 171 video and 689 library results (!), including people and series (and unfortunately I can't filter further by that). Among them is "Momo Kyun Sword" (http://www.crunchyroll.com/momo-kyun-sword/more) which doens't seem to have a "Kanno" at all...

Finally, a search for I.G (http://www.crunchyroll.com/search?o=m&r=t&q=I.G) gives me thousands of results, and even though I didn't check every one of them, it seems only the 1st one is (somewhat) relevant (http://www.crunchyroll.com/media-574046/culture-japan-11).

It seems to me that a better search engine would help your users enjoy more time watching and less time searching. That's my suggestion for now.
