Farewell to Crunchyroll
Almost all the anime fans have been surprised by the announcement of the crunchyroll to regulate all the videos in the site and to halt accepting fansubbed anime episodes anymore. The impending date is said to be in January 15.
Crunchyroll have been introduced only to me by my classmate when I was still in high school. I was original downloading all the loads that I want to watch so I often have to watch out for feeds just to watch the anime earlier than usual. When Cruchyroll was introduced to me, I was able lessen my priorities to download and just watch out for the recent uploads so I’ll be able to maintain the free space of the hard disk. Crunchyroll is also a home for some of the extinct torrents already so I’m kind of sad since I think the videos would be wiped out and only the ones uploaded officially by FUNimation would only be the ones shown in the site. Considering they’ll be banning all the fansubs, I doubt Crunchyroll would still be useful for me because the uploaded videos of FUNimation also filters viewers from different continents.
I just don’t know what’s gonna happen to the future. Will Crunchyroll stick with the licensed materials? What will happen if Studio Pierrot decided to stop doing Naruto? Beats me. I just think Crunchyroll would soon look like a hall of advertisement for all Blue-ray DVDs, posters and other merchandise. I think the community won’t be the same anymore considering I’m quite fond of the forum topics there.
