*hopes for Senran Kagura to get a simulcast*

Needs more exposure so we can get the anime licensed and the games here.


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~

How come there's suddenly a whole load of idiots like the one above me on this thread? (note: referring to anonymousca4 sorry)

Most fansubbers have much worse releases than CR. Sure, there are a few exceptions, but that is the way it goes, not the other way around. I have never seen anything on CR that is actually painful to watch, whereas every other release from fansubbers fall into that category.

Shonen filled lineup? lol? Sure, the most watched series on there are shonens, as they are everywhere else. CR bids for every series, and gets a broad variety of stuff. Saying stuff like "their shonen filled lineup" only serves to weaken your point as it shows that you don't really know what you're on about.

Oh and want the original product? Just right click and turn the subs off then. NO subs - fansubs or CR subs or funimation subs or whatever else - none of them are "the product the original studio intended to sell", and if the studio actually does have a preference on how something is subtitled, it is far more likely to show up in CR's releases than in a bunch of people with no connections to the studio of any sort illegally sticking their own subs on a show.

And the second paragraph of that post is just laughable.

....Not really.

The shounen titles are likely the ones least influenced by CR's subbing style, because of sublicenses from Viz and/or greater oversight from the original licensor (which is not always a good thing). In general, CR does not have a loose/westernizing translation style (part of why I enjoy them), with a few exceptions.

I have a feeling Anonymousca4 has never watched a CR stream, possibly never even seen the website.

I suspect that as well. Yeah, I sure watched a boatload of shounen when I watched the Spring 2012 lineup where I followed Nyarko-san:Another Crawling Chaos, Fate/Zero, Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, Kids on the Slope, Yurumates3Dei, Space Brothers, the second half of Bodacious Space Pirates, and the 2nd cour of Knight in the Area and had to put Upotte and Medaka Box on my backlog. /sarcasm tag just in case.

For the record, my favorite show of Fall 2012 which had a lot of popular shounen shows is Girls Und Panzer. I don't think anybody associates GirlPan with shounen(I really have to finish watching the original Saki soon. I love that, and think I'll love the Episode of Side-A spinoff)

Well, I hope to see some good shows picked up by Crunchyroll. I like their system and it's convenient for me to stream on my ipad. I only download anime when I want to make gifs (which means I really love the series). :/

Yes, Crunchyroll! Best streaming site IMO, comes through again!

I usually prefer no subs at all and I can turn them off with Crunchyroll.

Nice they picked up a pretty big-name title, and I like idols, but if I remember correctly this is the one with a lot of CG dancing, so I'll pass.
