I don't mean it in any disparaging way towards CR..I love the service and all they have been able to do, but does anyone remember when CR was essentially just like you tube for anime with all the fansubs, technically illegal, ect. It's funny cause now all the fans sites just rip off of crunchyroll

Remember dattebayo and the total pricks that they were?

No, but I remember being a part of the forum at the now defunct name of narutofan.com.

I remember hearing about that site owner selling "official" subbed episodes of Naruto which were just stolen work from other fan subbers.

I come from darker places, friend.

Yes and yes.

And prior to CR and streaming there was basically just that one site I assume cannot be named.

Yeah, I was here back then, and mainly that's how I found this site. It had pretty much all the anime that I wanted to watch back then, which sadly they no longer have on the site any more, like Initial D.

No, before the days of legit crunchyroll I was using different sites. I didn't know about crunchyroll till 2015.

I know that was once the case, but I didn't get into manga/anime until around... 2005ish? (based on Naruto run date on TV). I mostly read manga until I ran out at school and local libraries, and didn't really watch any anime except a few like Naruto that ran on TV until after that. So I wasn't really seeking out anime online until CR became legit. I'm also very conscious of legality and a natural rule-follower, so I've never hung out around sites that I can't verify as legit. Which makes me sad for manga, as there's not really a manga equivalent of Crunchyroll that I'm aware of, and I can't afford to buy a bunch myself. (I know Crunchyroll has a few series, but "few" is key in that statement and it doesn't exactly have the best interface, nor the earlier chapters of some of the ones that I'd actually be interested in reading...)

Back then, the site was actually in control of people who cared. I mean look at this site now... it's not even dynamic for crying out loud... REALLY? You have over a million premium members and can't update your site to be HTML5 and dynamic (and fix the annoying inbox count problem)? It would be nice to see the forums updated too. They look so cheap. It's worse than a college final project.

It was the name of a group that did fansubs for several series. They got their name from the phrase that Naruto said all the time "dattebayo" I don't think it has any litrral meaning, but in the English dub of Naruto they translated it to "Believe it"
