Anyone else turn ad block back on just to see the Crunchy commercial? Fricken love that commercial. It's fun and catchy.

Except if you do wouldn't that kinda ruin the money value from the ads?


Tho myself I do watch the ads until I'm able to pay for a CR membership I did find a glitch where on kindle fire apparently ads won't appear correctly so it skips over them 95% of the time.

So its kinda weird.

I guess it would ruin the money value, although if I want to watch a series on CR and end up finding it in good quality somewhere else (Netflix, youtube, hulu) I go there... which I would assume brings the money value down even more

I use multiple layers of adblocking so when I was watching as a "free" user I often had problems and had to reload multiple times.

Five bucks a month ain't much.

Keep Adblocker off when on CR otherwise CR will loose the income they use to get contracts with all the Japanese companies. no Ads = No Anime. If you really hate Ads that much then spend 5$ a month to get rid of them its that easy.

I don't use adblock when I'm on websites I like.

Please reconsider adblock.

Look no one likes ad's but that how we get stuff for "free" if you block ad eventually everything will be paid only. By enjoying content and not providing recompense for it you are telling people their time and effort is not worth your time to sit though a couple of ad's. Personally I'd tell them to block everyone using an ad block so that that person can go and block someone else's revenue stream. Its not like they need your lack of business.

Just my 2 cents

I don't use adblock period. It's basically the only way for websites to make money so I'd feel like a piece of shit if I used it.

Adblock is rarely off for me. I subscribe to Crunchyroll anyways though because I enjoy the service and it's a more than fair price for what i get out of it. And if a site so chooses, they can simply refuse to run any application as long as an adblock is detected which is fine. If anyone wanted to see something enough they'd be willing to pause the adblock for a while.
Sites like youtube though i don't care for. If i like a youtuber i might donate because most of them have a donations button.

I don't mind promotions however. If someone starts or ends their video giving a promotion to a supporting business i'll be willing to listen.
Like when crunchyroll asked the GameGrumps to do their promos, i feel like that may have been some of the smartest money Crunchy has ever spent. The grumps are funny and creative and people will trust what they have to say. The fact that the promotion is played using the first minute of the video rather than as an ad just guarantees that it's seen
