So I thought of this idea while every time I watch an anime for example ERASED is really big between me and my friends right now... What if instead of communicating with everyone on say Skype or Steam why doesn't crunchyroll add a chatbox per anime so all the viewers can talk about what they think is going to happen.. Like everyone can discuss and just be more social.

are you saying that you want something more active than the threads below each episode? like and active chat feature similar to twitch? because that would be outstanding. I can see how it would be stressful during the launch of an episode because people would be constantly spoiling it for others that just started the episode. however adding a feature like this would still be quite interesting.

the chat might work during a simulcast, since no-one would have finished the series, so there's a lower chance of others giving out spoilers.

Yeah, it'd get me watching shows just for the excuse to laugh at it with other people.

That'd be amazing. But there should be some requirements or else the system would get overloaded. If EVERY anime were to have a chat box it would just be straight up hectic. The chat should be disabled until there's at least 10 people on that specific anime chat room.

I'm 1/2 and 1/2 on this one. It sure would be interesting to have a chat box, particularly within the day of an anime episode's release. However, with CR's tendency to run slow in certain occasions (and vids not playin' right), this might add to the problem.

Cant you just make threads for that?

One word:










Spoilers.

Yeah, seems like a good idea.

I feel that would be both amazing and a disaster.

I'd want to see if it would actually work first. Mayhap a closed beta is in order?
