Hey, I'm excited. I'm not sure why everybody here isn't excited.



Like, yo. That's sword and sorcery. Give me more of that. I always need more of this genre. I don't care where it ends up on the Steven Universe to Conan the Barbarian scale.

I wonder if Crunchyroll realizes that them boasting about having an entire writing staff that is all female is illegal, hiring someone based on the nature of their gender is illegal and something you should not brag about. This is why we have a meritocracy, I care about the competence of an individual, not the nature of their skin color or their genitalia. I will gladly spend my money elsewhere if Crunchyroll is spending their money on SJW cringe fest shows instead of subbing Anime. This is a marketing disaster, It is almost as if Crunchyroll does not know who their demographic is nor have they learned from the failures of the comic book industry who are failing because of Ideological driven content. I subscribe to Crunchyroll because I love Japanese culture and Anime not to watch woke western cartoons.

Because it isn't an Anime It also has cheap flash animation style similar to Steven Universe which is hot garbage. Crunchyroll is making it easier to justify pirating anime again because they can't stop being stupid. Shut up and provide me a service or I will just go to Animekiss

Crunchyroll you have disappointed me. Why must you pander to feminists? They only make everything worse. It's pretty sad to see on the trailer that they even had to mention how many men to women that are staffed. On top of that the fact that they care so much about diversity yet there is not one male writer. I certainty won't be watching this (unless it's so bad it's good). Just look at all the others who pandered to them, the new Ghost busters, Oceans 8. I just hope you don't go any deeper.

I love the fact they wasted cash on this instead of fixing the app or servers.

But that is a very intriguing plot hinted at, and I loved the action and acting so far.

Wait, there wasn't any? What was this promoting?

The people they are pandering to don't even subscribe to Crunchyroll or watch anime and even if they do it is a very small fraction of the community. They obviously do not know that you market to your core domographic not a very small subset of society and a small fraction of your userbase at that, Which is why this is being received so poorly and why they disable rating and comments on the video.

Honestly, it comes down mostly to delivery and mission. The video itself is very vague. Almost no information about the cartoon. No real plot, no real demonstration of animation, quality, etc. They talk about their diversity, the fact they are proud that they have no males on their writing staff or something to that effect.

Personally, I don’t care about, or want to know the way their team is formed. I don’t care about how many men, women, queer, straight, etc people exist on their team. I don’t care, even, if they have cats helping write the scripts. What I care about is the outcome, the cartoon in this case.

Crunchyroll, and really media in general really need to stop with this pushing of social justice into the faces of their audience. Make a good cartoon, make that the forefront. The cartoon should sell itself. I’m not going to watch it because you have gender balance (or lack thereof) on your staff. I...Don’t...Care. If the story is solid, then I’ll watch it. The story is what you should be talking about.

Also please don’t censor future games or anime, ever. If you’re worried about being politically correct or some nonsense, allow us to turn it off. I have been a Crunchyroll supporter for years, but have no issue going elsewhere if your core mission gets diluted and misdirected.

I pay money to watch anime, not because pirating it is hard, but because i want to support the industry and the creation and continuation of things I enjoy. My money is not for the use towards things like a cheap Steven universe x Grimgar hybrid.

They disabled comments on their videos and refuse to hear the voices of the people whos money they are wasting on this. I'm not upset I'm disappointed. If this show gets more than one season without being something a majority of subscribers, Key word Majority, enjoy I will just cancel my subscription and go to a pirating site, where atleast MY money isn't being used to pay low talent sexist writers who are so unsure of their own product they won't even show a pilot as their way of trying to build hype no instead they just tell us they break the law and pretend that's ok.

no one cares who writes the show we only care if the show is good and little girls in a magic world has been done to death, and these people aren't about to make a new one worth being interested in because its so clear from the get that this isnt going to be a real story its going to be a bunch of talking points forced down our throats.

So I saw the video promotion.





That's not how you hype a show. You should leave that teaser to the dvd commentary.


Just give us a few pictures and the title card. Bamn. Hype machine activate. I'm going to go back to watching Disenchanted.

Anime is available elsewhere for free. I'm not spending any more of my money on Crunchyroll premium if it's going to be flushed into this sexist agenda.

Aye, I ain't gonna argue for that teaser. I watched it right after my first post after noticing that picture of the like to dislike ratio. I was pretty sure a show couldn't fuck up it's promotion this fast.



And well, it was pretty bad of a trailer. I just wanted to know more about the show, now hear someone talk about how diverse a cast consisting of an Elf and a Tattoo girl are.



Core mission? Er...isn't the core mission bringing shows for us to watch? It's an animated sword and sorcery show. Show me what yah got Crunchyroll.

Maybe add a little swelling music and hyperbolic words in big font too

Yeah it wouldn't seem that difficult.
