Hey, users of Crunchyroll, hikariyami1 here.
I usually go by the same username with a lot of the stuff I use.
I have known about this site for the longest time, but have only recently gotten my premium subscription.
While I love both anime and video games, I have found that these days anime as become more accessible and entertaining given my schedule. I find myself rewatching a lot of my favorites out of a sense of nostalgia as well as watching the stuff considered classics in the past. I generally prefer to watch older titles because they are
1. Finished meaning I do not have to wait a week to watch an episode
2. May be part of a series spanning multiple seasons which may have completed its run

However as a result of focusing on finished releases (aside from Violet Evergarden, which at the time of typing this, I am watching, its actually the first ongoing show I am following), I feel as if I am missing out on the social aspect of the anime community. Through this website, I am hoping to get a taste of that kind of conversation. But as anyone could relate to, being the new guy can be a daunting experience.

So to speak, I have decided to break away from my hikikomori shell of watching in isolation and be able to share my experiences in this wonderful medium with other people. These days, I usually visit this site daily because of the news keeping me updated (looking forward to that XC2 NG+) and also as a place to rewatch Sound! Eupohonium.

I am always open to talk about anime and video games.
With all that said, I am hikariyami1 and nice to meet you!

Hey there. As a past subscriber and a new and proud free user I can't tell you how excited I get every season. I don't think people give Crunchyroll enough credit as far as a decent service and the fact that they ?try? to please a wide range of fans. I really don't care to waste time on older shows, I try to stay as current as possible. A personal note, Food Wars got me into anime and Crunchyroll.

I certainly agree with you on how Crunchyroll tends to be underrated. The service may not be for everyone with is focus on mostly newer, sub only releases. But those like you who prefer newer shows, which kinda reminds me of what it was like to catch up with the newest episode of something back in the day, Crunchyroll fits that kind of taste like a glove.

Me personally, I tend to be impatient about waiting (of course I dont blame the release schedules, they are producing as they go along, after all) and I tend to lose investment in a show unless I can watch an episode whenever I want. But I respect and understand where you are coming from.

I have heard fun things about Food wars yeah, that pretty cool! I also love how the box set is modeled after a food box. Me, its kinda complicated. I started to acknowledge the existence of anime because of a DBZ Budokai game gifted to me when I was a kid. It was not until a few years ago when I actually finished a show, Persona 4 The Animation as I played the video game it was based on. Sometime after that I watched Code Geass after listening to how catchy its first opening is. And finally, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya solidified anime as a fun medium for me. It was so beautiful.

And in terms of Crunchyroll, the first show I saw years back as a free user was Occult Academy (Still cannot believe that one character was voiced by Minori Chihara...the voice of Nagato). And what got me to be premium was watching what is now my 2nd favorite of all time: Sound! Euphonium.

Thanks for the response, dude, and hope to see you around the forums!

Hey, how's it going so far? You new to the website, the forums, or both?

I see your profile pic of a Pikachu Hoodie, which is cool! I used to be the biggest Pocket Monsters player when I was younger. I was THE Pokemon level grinder when I was a kid, getting my team's level so high so I could sweep the Elite Four with no problems. My JRPG mantra has always been level grind to success, hehe.

And lately I have been playing a lot of Dragon Ball FighterZ on PS4, using the team of Android 21, Beerus and Android 16. ITS SO FUN!

And anime wise I have been on a slice of life roll these past few months, with the likes of Sound! Euphonium (3 watches) and K-On (4th watch) and Tamako Market.

With that said, pleased to meet you! And I hope to see more of you in the forums!
