Well according to wikipedia, CR has 700,000 paying subscribers, which means they are pulling in 5 million a month roughly.

I did a quick check and saw that Hulu doesn't appear to have any ownership of Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll is owned by The Chernin Group and TV Tokyo Corporation.

It appears that Hulu has ownership of Funimation, though.

Lol, these questions.

3 dollars more a month...... well I certainly can't afford a large cup of coffee every month with triple cream and sugar. An extra 36$ a year, less than my over priced phone bill which you probably have to pay for as well.

I don't care, CR has delivered endless hours of pure happiness that I wouldn't be able to enjoy otherwise. I have found Fate Zero on CR and it has become a part of my life. I'm sick of seeing these ridiculous questions that talk about CR service.

Funimation has Spice and Wolf, but I own the complete series. CR has Fate Zero, Cross Ange, SAO, NGNL, Maouyu, Akame Ga Kill, DRRR! Need i continue?

I'm paying 7 dollars a month for something that shouldn't even exist, but dedicated people want to share the world of anime with people from across the world. 7 dollars ! You wouldn't think twice when you go and buy something useless for 7$ it makes me sick to think people want to get a rise out of the community this way.

If I wanted to i could pay 7$ a month and not have to buy the actual anime, but I have bought anime, because I respect what these artist do for us, for our entertainment, for our enjoyment, practically free of charge for the amount that they have to spend.

Eh, don't sweat it. I could be wrong on some things, too; I only got this stuff from Wikipedia.

I'm not a fan of price being raised without me getting anything in return, so I would feel pretty negative.

Depends. If they clearly stated why, I most likely would be fine with it personally. Particularly if, like you said, they did so to acquire more licenses or do whatever it is they do procure more anime.

I'd be a little worried about how well it would go over though. More often than not, when companies raise prices, consumers get all in an uproar about it. I wouldn't want their reputation to suffer through that.

But personally, I don't think i'd mind, as I have faith in them. And $10 isn't that bad. On occasions, i'll splurge and spend more than that on lunch lol

I was ready to ditch subscriptions and just use kissanime, but what it's at now is perfect. Make it any higher and that would push me over the edge and just cancel and use kissanime.

I don't plan on getting membership so I don't particularly care.

I don't have premium, so it really wouldn't bother me. I don't mind the ads for the most part.

I rather see them be competitive and drop their regular subscription down to Funimations Subpass subscription price. Then it would be easy to justify picking up subscriptions on both sites.

10$ a month wouldn't mean shit to me. Hell, 25$ wouldn't bother me honestly. The problem I have is when companies hike prices up without providing any worth behind it.
