in terms of design, i definitely prefer this newer version. contrary to the thus-far "popular" consensus here, i like the green; it's one of the few colors that wouldn't clash with the orange. and it looks... happy! =) as some already mentioned, though, it would be nice to provide different skins. at the very least, people would stop complaining. another possible area to consider is font: next to the "crunchyroll" logo, the orange navigation bar just looks.. boring. i think a "fun" font would be nice. also, it would be cool to provide some font styling options for the text boxes.. though i can see how people could abuse that, so i leave that to your discretion.

in terms of navigation, while this one is less cluttered, the older one is a bit better. perhaps it's simply because i've gotten used to using it, but i find it more tedious to access my profile, favorites, etc. i know, it's just one extra click, but it looks like there's still space on the top navigation bar... *wink wink* speaking of which, it bugs the ocd side of me that the navigation bar is left aligned such that there's empty space on the right side (i.e. it's lopsided) and that the boxes for each section are fitted (i.e. different sizes)

those were all rather picky, but figured i'd put it all down while i was here. overall, i really like the new look. ^_^

Haha, I don't mind the new design but actually I preferred 'round' objects. ^_^
The bright color scheme is alright for me too.
I like it when my cursor moved to the CR logo on the top left, the sentence, "Feed your need!" came out. LoL~
Glad that now the "Game" section has sub-sections like PSP, PS3, WII, etc.. (I just found that out.. o.O)
There's actually nothing to complain about... in my case.. =D

Cheers, Shinji~!

I think you should change the top to white instead of the light green color.

Center the links at the top (Home, Anime, Drama, etc) or something. The way it is now is annoying as hell >.<

hihi guys! if you havent noticed yet, crunchyroll went through a slight redesign just now. i've gotten rid of rounded corners because it was kinda ghetto (you can see it chop off the sharp corners). i've also tried to reduce clutter and simplify the navigation.

since the navigation has changed a bit, i know it's gonna be a bit confusing/hard to find certain links right. dont worry, ill be going over the whole site the next few days and making sure things are easy to find! theres a lot of pages to look at! =/

i've also released a new chat version (right-clicking users' names show more actions now), and some new (undocumented) chat commands... ;P

also, please post below if you find pages with messed up layouts (if things are aligned to the right when it probably should be centered), or if things are overlapping. there were also a lot of minor bug fixes too, but i wont list them here bc people probably dont care! =D

here's to a better crunchyroll ~~!

ps happy valentines day!


I'll tell you right now there's a few little problems i have with it.

While i'm sure it's much easier to forget the rounded corners for speed in loading..

That's fine.. The background color being mint green on the top is really unappealing. REALLY unappealing.

Especially with the bright red of the notifications and msg things.
(It kinda clashes with the supporter stars as well)

Perhaps a different color to ease the eyes on this.

Also.. The navigation issue... When you're in the forums the my profile list (my profile, my home etc etc) Dissappears.. It's quite annoying to have to click to another place to be able to get to my profile or GB when in the forums.

(i haven't checked out the chat stuff yet - i'll get back to you on that)

I like the widening of the entire page. Making it fill more of the screen. Nice choice there.

(this is just me being anal here) The tabs at the top are not centered... it makes me actually want to lean to the left....strange i know.. but it bugs me.

The tabs, when you go to write a post or quote something, slide to the left..

There are more little things, but i'll post them at a later time, because i need to work right now.
