Destructoid : Anime on your xbox 360 : Crunchyroll partnership announced

The kids that watch anime will definitely know about video streaming portal Crunchyroll. This site has managed to change the entire U.S.-based industry in just a few short years, earning video exclusives and near-simulcasts of popular Japanese content. The companies that make DVDs? They're shutting down while Crunchyroll is growing.

I wonder why crunchyroll doesn't make a app for ps3 and xbox 360 .

dgroundwater2691d ago

Any PS3 owner will tell you they use Crunchy on their browser. But yes an app for 360 would be slick!

Godmars2902691d ago

I haven't been able to play CR lately for some reason. The player just wont load.

And if I'm reading this right, CR's offering this through Zune for DL, not as a separate app.

I enjoyed Gintama so much I subscribed to crunchyroll to support the mangakas.

After it ended :(. I deactivated my subscription the same day.

I've been having problems on my PC... try checking it out now it worked for me yesterday

btw destructiod.com used Giant Killer pick... it's great

crunchyroll is trash

i would rather watch raws

Godmars2902690d ago

Not like not being able to watch CR is a big deal. Like many are pointing out here, there are plenty of other sources available through the PS3. Has me wondering if anime will be accessible though Hulu+, which then has me hating to ask since I don't want to get Hulu+. Not after the bastards blocked the PS3 in the first place. A-holes.

Also has me thinking how CR has gone from once being illegal streamers, to legitimizing it. How I'm not certain that the general adoption of the practices will either hurt or harm legit Western translation companies.

They've made the app to push sales in Japan, since last month actually sold some units, over that Monster Hunter: Battle Frontier Game... I wonder If microsoft are going to go all out with marketing in Japan, as they are with Kinect for the rest of the world

ChronoJoe2690d ago

They can't hold onto US-EU at this rate. Not a good idea.

Cueil2690d ago

I'm not sure what you're trying to say... the 360 has such a massive lead over Sony in the US it's not even funny... EU is where the war will be waged for sure

of their preferred systems are idiots because every damn article on this site breaks down into my system is better then yours. why can't people on this stupid site just talk about the damn article that's posted instead fighting?

Nuclearwinter2690d ago

What exactly are you getting at? How would this crunchyroll app push sales in Japan? Why would the Japanese need an app on their Xbox to watch anime? I'm pretty sure they can just watch TVTokyo.

Who the fuck gets their anime from crunchy roll. I get mine in high quality from my favorite groups and then put it on my portable HDD to watch on PS3.

Triella2691d ago

My thought exactly besides their collection of anime is pretty scant and late by at least two seasons.

ThanatosDMC2690d ago (Edited 2690d ago )

Exactly, crunchyroll website is full of spam and also unreliable links. It's better to find it on the subber's websites and what not. Also, they some links that tell you to pay to watch, which is retarded since most if not all fansubbed episodes are FREE.

Fansubbers usually link a torrent to their files or an MU (megauploads) link.

Cueil2690d ago

how about people who want to support the creators of the animes

Triella2690d ago

By founding mediocre fansubbers ? I prefer paying for the DVDs/BDs

Baka-akaB2690d ago

poeple who want to support the author dont feed crap like crunchyroll ...

You are much more useful when you pay for their own japanese services , or buy their dvds , even while watching fansubs

ClownBelt2691d ago

Animecrazy is the way to go.

rezzah2690d ago

There are many...

Animedreaming

Animeatom

Animeseason

Anilinks

and many more.

coolasj2691d ago

the 2nd to last ( yes I put that right ) WORST subs on the internet. They would be THE worst but there are subs done worse. I just get my Subs from Fansub Groups and either stream it to my PS3 or just straight up put it on there. That would be a waste as anyone who's REMOTELY interested in any sort of anime would get worse subs AND quality from them than if they just google'd the episode they wanted and watched on some embedded site.
