I wanna watch a second season of No Game No Life. I heard it did poorly in japan but fine overseas. But there wont be a second season. Maybe this is the case for other shows as well.

It would be nice if Crunchyroll could produce new anime in the same way Netflix produces its own series.

Nice yes, but the subscriber base is not large enough.

Sure I wouldn't mind.

I'd like to see another season of Problem Children are coming from another world, aren't they? If they could bring that series back, I'd upgrade to Premium+ for it.

i have my doubts CR would be able to bring "original anime" that are fun and have no QUALITY issues.
making anime costs money, and making an anime that's interesting to watch and have little QUALITY issues costs even more.
heck, CR appears to have a shortage of staff to even handle technical issues.

having said that, even if they were to somehow make a new series, it'd probably not hold my interest (not that it would matter, since it'd be a premium exclusive, but meh)

Would it be nice, of course. Will it happen, not likely. Making even half decent anime costs a shit ton of cash and there are far too many free loaders here.

It costs a lot of money and takes a lot of animators to do that. Not sure if CR would have the proper resources for it. They are nowhere near as large scale as a company like Netflix, there isn't enough money being raked in to afford something that... lavish. Totally ignoring the fact that Netflix is also a pay by month service, unlike CR where membership is allowed to be free, and Neflix gives you up to only a month free. Due to having millions of subscribers, Netflix is a service that is able to afford proper licensing and production costs to acquire good writers and producers for their original series, whilst CR has probably only a fraction of their staff, cash, and recognition. Anime is not as large a fandom in general as people make it out to be, at least not compared to live action shows and movies streamed on Netflix on a daily basis.

Like, if i want to watch animation produced by American companies, I will stick with what I pretty much access on Netflix, remember from the days of olde, or am able to view on TV or online. I'm not really that fond of the idea of American "anime", tried to get into RWBY or whatever but it didn't tickle my fancy as any Japanese anime series ever has, and I like American cartoons for their own merits as supposed to basing my taste 100% off what I consume that's originally from Japan. I just don't see "American Anime" as being a terribly profitable idea, as far as full scale production goes, but I'm okay with small stuff that doesn't suck up a major budget done by fan artists as long as it's half decently done or even stylistically sucky...

If Crunchyroll were to fund original anime they would probably just be one of the investors of the production committee. All the main work would be done in Japan. Just like the Kickstarter funded Little Witch Academia sequel was mainly funded by fans outside of Japan but Trigger pretty much did what they wanted to make their anime.
