Personally, I would agree with answers 2-5. I just don't understand why it's needed and it's slightly annoying. I've been using Crunchyroll for 9+ years and already get 90% of my anime needs from the site. I know Crunchyroll, I know your everything anime (almost). So why do you feel you have to remind me every time I start watching a new video. I like that it says it's an "exclusive stream" for me every time, but I pay a premium for no ads, and that includes ads about you, which is what I feel this new 3 sec clip is. Please, don't do it Crunchyroll. Remember your roots. Remember when you had to shut down for a little bit until you could get the license to broadcast.... remember how you felt when you first started bringing anime to the masses with real time broadcast release times... remember the average Dai Anime Fan that is sitting on there couch and don't subject them to silly clips about yourself reminding them what they already know about you. That's why they spend there hard earned money to support you, because you're awesome! ..but don't let it go to your head. Thank you for your time and consideration and I hope you continue to be awesome in the future.

I've moved this to the Polls forum.

I don't think I've actually seen this yet --maybe it's on the site only (and I watch mostly on Roku), but if it's what it sounds like, it's just common branding. You see the same sort of thing at the beginning of every Funimation streamed video--and it's been that way there for years. If Crunchyroll wants to continue to be a major player they need to make sure they are seen and that folks remember them. If you are someone who watches streams in multiple places this is their way to impress on you that this is them and not one of those other places.

Missing poll option of "I don't see the 3 second clip"
It's been quite a long time since I watched anything here and so I didn't know what 3 second clip you were referring to. I went to a video but didn't see it so I can only assume my ad blocker removes it if it is on every video.


Tried again without ad blocker with same results. So I have no idea or opinion about it.

I have no strong opinion on it. It is like being punched repeatedly by a toddler. Not something that you notice unless you are looking for it.

I watch on console so I do not have this problem.

Anywho, why am I not surprised to see someone complaining that 3 precious seconds of their life was taken from them in exchange for 20-24 minutes of participating in their hobby?

Thanks for the responses everyone. Yeah, I'm starting to think it's not on every episode, and honestly it's no big deal I suppose.... just thought things were fine without it. Anyway, thanks again! (for all of you who don't see it it's just a little thing that pops up and says "Crunchyroll" " Everything Anime" and then disappears)

I'm looking for an "I'm indifferent" poll option.

I mean that's way less intrusive than youtube/google advertising.
