Is there a way to see when a certain anime will be removed/ or was removed, I was going to watch something only it turns out it is gone now =( I hope I didn't miss it by a few weeks/days... lol. I know ann keeps track in their video list but I don't think that includes crunchy. When something is about to expire I am way more likely to watch it... so it would be nice to know.... I think I've seen announcements but I am not sure if they do that anymore.

It just kind of sucks sometimes I put off something for whatever reason, then I want to watch it only for it to be gone...

btw when was Ef ~ A Tale Of Memories & Melodies removed? I swear it was there like very recently. but not anymore...

A lot of shows disappeared recently (someone made a list but I'm too lazy to look for it) but apparently the streaming rights or license to stream expired without notice. Or they probably knew but forgot to notify us. They said they were working on getting said shows back but not sure when that will happen. Sad cause I had some of those shows on my back log too.

Hmm, laws.

I enjoy watching anime here where I can comment and join in discussions, but that's literally the only reason I use CR. I guess I have enough HDD space to download everything that CR streams if I really have to resort to such a thing - the anime I consider interesting or worth re-watching at least, which as it turns out is a lot of titles...

There's other ways you can watch those shows on your backlog, they're pretty easy, but it's a shame that they're not as much a part of the community after they're removed. Not quite anyway, outside of forums.

What can I say.. I love commenting on things that I love or hate. That's the main reason I use CR anyway; aside from convenience.

I've moved this to the Site Support / Minor Questions forum. Most of the time they make an announcement in Site News when a license expires but they aren't always able to do that. There isn't any place where you can always see when a license is expected to expire.

For some additional clarification about the subject in general and related discussion see:
