Hmm... Goblin Slayer, Slime, Index, and Monogatari. Well, it certainly looks better than what we got for Summer at least.

Kind of wondering about Goblin Slayer. The original was pretty rapey and brutal.

I'm wondering how far they're going to go in the series.

Same people that did Re:Zero, so I expect a fair amount of the gore will survive. I'm not so sure about the rape stuff as it's a broadcast show. Even late night that might not fly given the current broadcast standards in Japan.

I'm sure they'll have it in there in some form, but I'm thinking it will be toned down somewhat.

The less Anime Crunchyroll has to stream, the more members it hemorrhages. Maybe it'll finally update it's streaming services to bring them back?

Actually, it did. No idea what they're using at the moment, but it's way better than what they were using before.

My own opinion, Crunchyroll is much better than anything else I've seen for anime streaming... Hulu, Netflix, and Crackle do not have near the variety Crunchyroll has.

Except for a bit of stuttering every now and then, and some difficulty finding titles in their layout... I consider it quite workable.

The only other oddity, is sometimes I've noticed, that you can sometimes find series on the Crunchyroll site through their search and watch it off a PC, that do not appear in the selections or searches on a WII or PS4...

And it only took them until there's less than a week to do it... Real nice, CR. Jerks.

Hey, so... VRV - worth it?

Myself and my one brother, whom both watch Crunchy Roll.. are assuming the final list to be much, much larger, worst case every Funimation title... Since first hearing of this we've been going through what we like and determining if Funimation is the distributer or not, and making alternative arrangements to insure we still have access one way or another, if we do not already have the DVD/Blu ray release of it that is.

We are hoping, that at a minimum they actually continue with the series that are in the process of still coming out though, which would include for example Index 3.

Thanks, now I'm imagining Goblin Slayer on adult swim or toonami at night.

It's hilarious.

Well... Went on Crunchyroll just past midnight. I can confirm at least index seasons 1 and 2 gone, as well as Overlord season 1. Did not check anything else at this point but assumed they removed the rest too....

On the bright side, of the 4 series I was watching where they were still actually releasing new episodes regularly, all are still present... Emiya Cooking, Ulyssies, Index 3, and Bunnygirl sempai.

Oh... as a FYI,my brother got a notice about the WII... starting Jan 31st, Netflix streaming will no longer be supported on the WII, only WII-U and newer platforms... not sure why though.

Oddly, this does not affect myself, as I mostly use a playstation to browse Hulu, Crunchyroll, Netflix, and Crackle. However, it does affect my mother, whom like using the WII to browse Netflix and Hulu... As a Christmas present, I've decided to upgrade her rather than switch her to a different method. This will also allow her to continue playing her games, as oddly, she liked playing a few games on it, even at her age.
