Here goes to Crunchyroll taking over everything again :<. Hopefully they don't get Vividred Operation because a fansubber was going to do it if they didn't.

Yeah, people who just like to pirate instead of actually supporting the industry. Unless you're someone who is living in a country that Crunchy doesn't support, theres absolutely no reason to not pay 7 dollars a month unless you are scum.

If the goal is too support the industry, you contribute more by importing BD's, while at the same time only supporting the shows you like.

Not that is hard to figure out.

I don't like streaming, and I don't like Crunchyroll's business model.

When anime get localized, and I enjoy them, I buy the BDs.

Yeah yeah, use the typical line everyone does, but you're still a dirty pirate for just stealing the anime instead of paying for it. Its one thing if theres no legal streaming.. but if there is a 720p legal stream that is on time, theres no reason to steal it. Production Committees get money from the subscribers Crunchy has, so your money goes back to them regardless.

Do you lack the ability to understand what "more" means?

Oh, and you already 'justified' my reasons for using HS,
Unless you're someone who is living in a country that Crunchy doesn't support

So don't even try using ad hominems.


Do you even realize that even if importing contributed just as much as CR sub(which it doesen't), then you would still be supporting shows you dislike, and why would I want to do that?

Quick question, are they going to keep adding shows that are going to be part of CR's simulcast as they find out?
"I hate nice girls. If they so much as say hello, it stays on my mind. If they return my texts, my heart races. The day one calls me, I know I'll look at my call history and grin. But I know that's just them being nice. People who are nice to me are also nice to everyone else. I almost end up forgetting that...
Someone who's worked hard at being alone doesn't fall for the same trick twice. I'm a veteran at this, I'm the best there is when it comes to losing. That's why I'll always .. Hate nice girls."

Supporting the industry via CR has more advantages for us though as opposed to buying BDs. First of all it's cheap and you won't have to bother with importing something, most importantly though, we actually get to see somewhat quality subs pretty much instantly after the show airs in japan.

There's nothing keeping you from still importing, but if CR is available in your country, I definitely think you should support them. Too bad they avoid germany for some reason.

As long as you don't include me in that "us" thats fine with me.

I can just save that money, and then use it to buy BD's.

It is keeping me from importing, as it costs money that could be spend on BD's.

I love how people attempt to justify that paying, maybe $30 (?) for an entire season of anime contributes more to the industry than buying full sets of BD volumes that run into the hundreds of dollars just for one show.

> I can just save that money, and then use it to buy BD's.
If you're fine with waiting months after the show has stopped airing - and most people stopped caring - then sure. I'd be interested though how you figure out which BDs to order and which don't. Or do you simply order all of them and check which shows are actually worth it afterwards?

> It is keeping me from importing, as it costs money that could be spend on BD's.
How much is CR, isn't it like $7? I don't know how that's keeping you from importing, the taxes alone I have to pay for importing BDs are way, way higher than this.

But I don't want to further elaborate any offtopic discussion, I just don't get why anyone in the english speaking domain wouldn't be supportive of CR.

From here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-785423/new-winter-titles-boku-no-imoutowaosaka-okan-and-winter-specials

"In other anime-related news, Crunchyroll is also excited to announce that we will be showing the continuing episodes of Saki Episode of Side A! Up first is episode 13, which will be airing for Premium members December 24, 2012, at 7:30am PST. As usual, free members will be able to view it one week later, at the same time.

As for another continuing title, GIRLS und PANZER has unfortunately been delayed in Japan, and so Crunchyroll will resume streaming the series once it starts back up in Japan. However, there's still episode 10.5 to look forward to next week and tide you over until the girls of Ooarai Academy return!"
So Achiga-hen is an explicit yes, and GirlPan is implied. Seems pretty definite.

As for the whole CR vs Imports - uh, I just do both, plus fansubs where there's no CR stream (I refuse to use the other services). So "all of the above" for me!

Why not? I have nothing against people who buy CR. But what does CR offer(aside from faster speeds in subbing) that would give somebody a reason to subscribe? I dislike streaming, and you can't download episodes from CR, now can you?

And why does it matter how you spend the money, importing or CR, it will end up in the industry.
Not subbing to CR does not make somebody a "dirty pirate".

I for one hate Crunchyroll. But that's just me. Waiting for a week to watch it if you're not a subscriber; You get shit Quality, the fonts they put for the subs are usually mediocre and cause eye cancer; though if you use HorribleSubs you get the same crap, so lol.. Not everyone has a way of paying for stuff online. Not everyone has a "Job" to pay monthly subscription even if its 7$ or w/e it is.

I can see why people Download off HorribleSubs, but I don't because it's the same as Crunchyroll eye cancer and the amount of downloads I see Horriblesubs rip off Crunchyroll doesn't surprise me. They don't wanna pay/No means of paying for maybe few shows they will watch.

Then if you see something in a store you can't afford, do you just take it? If you can't afford something, sometimes you need to go without if you can't afford it. Its no excuse to steal it.

I only consider it stealing if ur keeping the episodes on your hard drive for more than a month, selling it for a prophet of your own, or claiming that ur the one who made it.
If you watch anime for more than 6 months , then you support the industry. Plus keep in mind the store example doesn't make sense with digital content overall.

I support the industry but lets me honest, I'm not in any situation to go buy myself a subscription when I can't afford it [I can get a job but focusing on work when I need to focus on my studies is more important] I might have the money now but I'm saving it up so I can get myself a blu-ray disc player so I can start buying BDs.

People can support the industry one step at the time for starters you can just check your local library and see what anime stuff they carry or ask a friend. Even though its no money to the industry, this is consider a way of support.

No? Of course if I can't afford something, sometimes you'll need to go without it, but I'm not going to wait w/e time it takes to watch a 13 episode series or w/e show to watch in BD/DVD; when you can watch it somewhere else easily obtainable like 70% of the people here do.

@Above has the same exact thoughts. I hate, no DESPISE streaming anime.

Well, this thread sure has escalated to the morals of pirating vs not pirating rather quickly.

On the flip side, oh look, a winter simulcast list, yay!

I imagine that somebody will simulcast that. Obviously, Crunchyroll streaming it would be better since CR's streams are quite good and usually covers at least major English speaking countries. I wouldn't be surprised if Funimation got it though.

Ideally, you'd pay for Crunchyroll and then download fansubs so that you can actually enjoy what you're watching in actual English, with at least an effort at typesetting. Look at Commie, they just use Crunchy's scripts and add karaoke, typesetting, and usually, some semblance of life to the robotic subs CR puts out. I legitimately feel bad for anyone who exclusively watches anime on Crunchyroll, it's like getting half of a fansub. Not that Commie is your best bet, but they're almost always better than HorribleSubs.

Protip: Downloading a fansub isn't hurting anyone, but watching lesser-quality subs is hurting someone, namely yourself. Do whatever you need to do so that you can sleep at night, but don't fool yourself into thinking that Crunchyroll is ever your best choice.

You guys take this stuff too seriously. I mean, whats the real difference? Slightly better picture quality or a bit different translation? Who cares unless you're just obsessed with staring at the picture to find minor faults or if you know Japanese itself to be able to tell the differences in whats being said. Crunchyroll is fine for what I want out of my anime watching experience. I'll watch fansubs for stuff Crunchy doesn't have, but unless its like a week late on Crunchy, I'll just watch it there instead of getting fansubs.

People who think CR isn't good enough need to step back on the self-entitlement. What's with this need to have dancing karaoke, over-styled subtitles, and layering English text over Japanese signs? I remember when anime fans got mad at that last one. Sheesh.

I really wish I knew what happened here too. This used to be a cardinal sin, and now some groups think it's a must-do. And it always looks like crap. There's a race to the bottom in try-harding for some groups and they just screw things up in the process. I'm so glad CR doesn't (can't with the streaming tech really) do it. Also, karaoke is superfluous (even downright annoying most of the time) as is most subtitle styling. CR uses a good, simple, readable font. They also, vast majority of the time, translate things in a style I like. There are very few cases where CR does something poorly, and like hell am I going to go with a group like commie that just takes their subs and then localizes them for shits and giggles. There are a couple groups I'd trust as much as or more than CR but not to such a degree that it affects my decisions, unless CR's delayed for some reason (I'm using UTW for Shinsekai for example). My support for CR has very little to do with them being "legitimate", it's really more because they just do it right and (usually, depending on the TV station they contract with) quickly.

So in any case, may CR's dominance continue for a long time to come. I couldn't be happier, so keep the simulcasts coming.

Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region.
These videos require a Premium Membership for your region.

Hopefully Central Europe (minus the Netherlands) will get some titles this time. (There were only 3 Fall 2012 titles available here; the Netherlands had 9)
Not sure about other people, but I'm not going to keep paying if none of the shows available are interesting for me. If there's not going to be much more available here then I'm not going to renew Premium Membership either. If it was a complete show then I'd consider, but for 3 specials...no.

I believe that if you are to support the anime industry and pay real money for series, you should get the release in the best quality you can find, fansubbers typically have much better releases then crunchyroll, with the exception of rippers, and fansubbers have better subs. I see no point in justifying paying for terrible quality of something you can't even own.

Anyone complaining about localizing outside of Crunchyroll needs to understand that in their shonen filled lineup, nearly every attack is ruined with their liberal subs and everything. It hurts to even consider anything I watched on their to be "watched" on my mal, because I sure didn't feel like I was getting the product the original studio intended to sell.

I live in India so I can't watch videos on Crunchy. :/
And I guess I'm one of the rare people who like the layered text next to japanese text.
And I absolutely love the karaoke. *o*
So I'm a rare one. But, if Crunchy did come to India, I would try it out.
Though I wonder if my dad would let me subscribe. 84 dollars per year is 4200 INR.
I already pay a lot of money for ordering manga and manga magazines every month.
But another 4200 wouldn't hurt that much I guess.
Ok, enough rambling~
