I'm watching Mirai Nikki on there and it's working just fine for me.



They did say they were putting videos back up as fast as possible so more popular shows are going up first.

I've actually been watching Mirai Nikki on that website for two hours now and had no problem whatsoever.

I've been seeing a trend of slowly, but surely, watching Anime illegally will become a thing of the past with legal streaming rising more and more. This has been going on for a while too, so it was bound to happen sooner or later!

I support anime industry by paying licensed sites.

That being said tho, I do find pretty moronic that some sites whose name will be mentioned (aka HULU) has the exclusive rights of 「落第騎士の英雄譚《キャバルリィ》」[Chivalry of a Failed Knight]... I mean, wtf... I've heard that FUNimation and HULU share pretty much the same catalog since they sorta use the same servers.

I already pay for Crunchy and FUNi, hell I'm gonna pay HULU to watch just one anime...

Its the same crap like iTUNES not letting us buy anime/jp music legally 'cus [insert a lame excuse that ALWAYS will have a pretty damn straight solution].

They want to lose money 'cus they are morons beyond comprehension? So be it.

Also is pretty sad that those sites we can't mention have a vault 10 times (or more) bigger in old titles. One thing I can admit is that Crunchy is going into the right direction adding more and more of those classics to their catalog. Thumbs up, Crunchy.

I'm pretty pissed myself. That was a great site considering it had double the amount of anime than CR, Hulu, and Funi combined. Many gems to be had there, and could easily be fixed by hosting from Sweden like many other torrent sites have done.

So today I woke up to see on twitter that [site that shall not be named] lost a bunch of the videos on their site due to the DMCA. I checked if that was true and IT IS! Here's a picture for what it says if you look at an anime episode that was taken down:

My favorite part of this is the broken english. It really makes me question the quality of their ability to put subtitles on shows. Either way, what is everyone's thoughts on this?


Just link twitter on here but to a page that doesn't directly go to the discussions about what you're talking about, but close enough that a little searching would find it. That's in no ways against the rules. If it were against the rules, then indirectly linking any website that has various topics would be against rules as well.

Funny though CR wouldn't exist if it weren't for it's old days of pirating. Once successful, adopt a moral high-ground and look away. Some gratitude to the hardworking volunteer community

I'm the same there. That's why I'm CR premium. I support the anime industry through CR premium, then I still mostly watch anime on pirating sites and fansub torrent sites anyways because hey, better selection, and pretty often better translators.

I see my contributions as more of an all anime on the internet pass, rather than exclusivity to CR.

Watching anime illegally will never be a thing of the past. Free anime is extremely accessible for those not willing to spend the money or are region locked. There would need a pretty big international movement in order for this to be completely wiped out.

PSA: As per my earlier post:


if the thread begins being used directly or indirectly as a way for users to exchange information about other sites of this sort it will be closed.


I've had to delete a couple of posts already. If I have to delete a couple more I will not keep the thread open.

This is a relevant story that I believe can be used as a starting point for general discussion, but hinting around about what other piratey sites are out there does not constitute an appropriate discussion. We know there are other sites; what may be of interest are thoughts about whether what has happened to this site will become more common for all sites of the sort, and why or why not and how that might affect the industry and licensing outside of Japan.

BTW, someone mentioned that they pay CR, but then go and watch most anime on other sites anyway. I don't know the details of CR's licensing arrangements but it may be worth keeping in mind that if you use other sites to watch the shows you can watch on Crunchy then that can directly (and negatively) affect the creators. If you watch on CR, then that contributes to a number that CR can share with the creators so they have better info about viewership, and almost certainly affects how much money goes back to creators because more viewers=more money. If you are watching these shows on another site, that's in effect keeping that valuable information, and some money, away from Crunchyroll and the companies they license from.

Okay, fine, you got me there. Let me rephrase that statement, then. It won't become a thing of the past, but rather....people will be streaming Anime legally more often than watching it illegally. Slowly, but surely.

Yeah I mostly try to watch on crunchy but its so bare that would mostly go for other websites (go) and hope for more access for Crunchyroll in the future I really hope so.
And lorreen is it not that more views a video has they will gain more the creator of said content?
But had so much problems in the past of the player here either buffering all the time or bugged out after an ad.

I'm well aware and will continue to be part of the problem for as long as possible.

Ideally, I'd like to torrent and then import, but my family barely has enough money to meet basic needs, so spending a bunch of cash on Chinese cartoons is not an option for me at this point in time.
