So, I jumped on Crunchyroll and was given a series of questions.

What are you currently watching, what is coming you want to watch, etc.


After looking through all the lists, and all of my answers being "None" I realized that my decision to cancel after Ushio and Tora stopped airing was a wise one.


[MINI RANT] I did list Kenichi as something I wish they would add... but that is more in a desperate attempt to promote the series in hope that it can be revived, regardless of how futile that is. (On ANOTHER note, how the F*** does Dragonball keep coming out with more crap, but Kenichi can't even finish the manga?!?!?! Also.... we need more of the manga, but the author wrapped it up. I just wish he would start another series... like Kenichi closer to being a master or whatever. BAHHHH)


I do love Crunchyroll. When it has something I want to watch, I gladly pay the sub. It just seems like it's a little light on good content lately.

Is that due to what is being produced, or what Crunchyroll is purchasing rights for? Maybe I'm just getting more selective about what I watch.

Is this all in my head?

I was hit with the same questions, and really I couldn't list anything that was MUST SEE TV.

I think it's mainly your preference. Anime that comes out that we can't even consider to be good still gets watched by someone who thinks differently.

That's what it sounds like.

Also, I only have 3 anime in my queue LOL. I think Crunchyroll is a little dry too.

Agreed my hope is CR starts acquiring more less expensive older anime to fill the gaps and moisten the dryness

Only simulcast series I'm watching here this season is GIntama, Haikyuu, One Piece & Naruto, and while Gintama is good enough to merit premium by itself, it does seem pretty dry... then again, maybe this just isn't a good cour for anime in general, it's happened before.

One big miss by them is not acquiring One Punch Man, another being the week delay of Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans.

For me I'm currently watching 11 anime shows from CR so I can't really say I think it's going dry. Wait for next season you'll be sure to find something you like.

Well, if they start showing stuff I like, I'll probably resub.

If they would acquire One Punch Man and the new DragonBall Series, i'd be good. I'm not complaining at all. I'm loving all the content so far.

No idea how people are still interested in Dragonball. Well, anything but DBZ Abridged. It was a good show when I was a young teen. That's as far as that went.

look at Netflix. 99% of their library is UN-watchable and or titles you've never heard of.

In defense of Netflix, they've started making their own stuff, now.... and most of it is good, even if I don't watch it all. To me, Netflix originals are worth a basic sub by themselves. Watch Marco Polo.... that show is BA, and the second season should be out soonish.

Doesn't help that this season is shite.

Taimadou and Asterisk are the two shows I'm watching that are on CR.

I basically keep this for my younger sister to watch Fairy Tale.

-Ushio and Tora
-Monogatari
-Young Black Jack

That's all i'm watching. I think I can watch all of those on Hulu.....
