What's going on at crunchyroll?
they suddenly fired 90% of their staff and didn't give a reason.

Anyone got any clues?

I graduated from a T14 law school and I currently work at my father's contracts firm. I have no financial issues whatsoever.

You're joking right? Literally nothing of what you pay goes towards that, CR pays a ridiculously low flat rate that no one who actually makes anime would lose a dollar over, it's literally a pittance to the CEO of an overarching production company, most of CR's money goes to it's investors, and now almost all of it does since there are no employees to pay, the only thing your money you pay goes to is funding israeli settlements on the west bank since the major investor for CR is a zionist.

not really anything tangible like a press release but the usual up beat and cheery mouthpiece is rather brutally somber today since word is beginning to spread.

Expect further news in the coming days, my guess is CR execs are realizing that their efforts for actual same day simulcast are futile so the first move is to find people willing to work for less to cut their losses as much as possible. Expect TV tokyo or AT&T to take over and redistribute the service to various other platforms.

The days of somewhat decent speed subs from CR are gone. The fansubs will rise once again to take it's rightful place on the throne.

>>152412384
Depends what you mean by creator. Production committees get tons of cash from BDs and merch no matter what. Its still one the biggest sources of profit in the industry. Directors/Writers also get paid from royalities in BDs and merch. (I mean anime writers, not manga writers) Studios? Unless they are pretty high on the production committee or the show is a megahit get pretty much only get the contract fee.
>>
Streaming rights have been cheap historically, but the cost has been increasing, as the various sites are starting to come into competition. The Crunchyroll-Funimation deal was a sign of that, licensing fees were finally starting to bite.

This is exactly what happened in the larger realm of streaming -- Netflix started out by scooping up cheap streaming rights, but eventually the studios began squeezing them for revenue, while they also tried to set-up a competing service they owned (Hulu).

Note that Netflix responded by padding out their selections with a lot of cheap B-grade content, combined with increasing amounts of premium Netflix Original content. Crunchyroll is probably going through a similar squeeze now.

I do buy it because people who are friends with CR staff are talking about it but its still prudent to wait for a legit source.
>>
>>152411449
Friendly reminder that CR intentionally went around and hired translators out of active fansub groups and included "no independent work" in their employment contracts. They over-hired and ran at a labour budget excess for several years with the goal of greatly reducing the presence of free alternative translation sources.

They essentially payed translators to not translate so they could establish themselves as a go-to source with minimal free competition. The assumption would be that the loss would be recouped at a later date because the act creates a more profitable market for their services.

Now that they're thoroughly established and working on a partnership with Funimation, they no longer have a need to keep fansubbers tied up on payroll, so they're downsizing their labour department closer to what is actually necessary to meet their workload.

Studios generally don't fund anime anyway. When you buy BDs you give money to production companies who paid for the anime to be made, and may be inclined to make more of it in the future.

I concur. Fucking CR killing the scene.

Even then making a successful anime is good for everyone involved, they might get just the contract money, but it'll help them get more contracts in the future.

Alright faggots, here's a fucking lesson you should know if Crunchyroll is going the way of the Blockbuster.

There's gonna be a scramble to buy up those licenses. Expect a season of fucking no one doing translations for a bunch of shows. But eventually, someone will step up and become the big dog in streaming, because that shit would mean a fuckton of NEETbux and weeaboo funding, so someone's gonna want it.

Expect fansubs to be a thing again, but not good enough to please expectations of the old days. You aren't gonna see any top-tier subs coming out of a fangroup, and almost certainly not the week of release for a good majority.

I'd expect Netflix or Funi to become the next big dog, but hopefully it would be some kind of new startup that understands that it's retarded to try and scoop up everything, and stick to being translators for shit instead of a marketplace/anime translator/K/J-Drama translator/Community organizers/buyoff machine.

Now here's what you faggots who think buying Crunchyroll subs can actually do to support the creators of these things.

BUY THE MANGA. BUY THE LIGHT NOVELS. BUY THE BDs IF THEY'RE ANIME ORIGINALS.

Subbing to Crunchyroll did fucking almost nothing for creators. That money isn't going to manga authors or light novel writers, it was going mostly to Crunchyroll pockets with maybe 10% being used to buy licences.

Fucking learn to buy a tankoban every once in a while if you like something. It doesn't even have to be imported, buying the tankoban or volume will give the author more money than your sub ever did, and it's cheaper. Even more so for Light Novels, since most are online and the cost of publishing is lower, e.g. less kickback to the publisher than if it was physical.

Now fucking do that instead of funding the shit-tier streaming sites.

Blockbuster didn't die because licensing, other comepitition in the same market, or anything like that. Blockbuster died because it failed to be innovative, streaming took everything by storm and required no physical locations and RedBox took the physical method of being able to burn hundreds of movies on physical formats.

If anything the company is just doing a massive restructure or shipping jobs somewhere cheaper

Yeah, because it couldn't even keep Crunchyroll afloat, if the premise of your post is correct. You're fucking retarded if you think that little money would do anything for the industry if it went directly to the creators. Something like Crunchyroll working out is a necessity in order the tap into larger markets. That would do much more for the industry than just us sending money to the creators.

It has more to do with the time and effort required just to be able to watch/read something that is already being actively translated.

Find some sort of class that can teach you the basics. Actually pay attention, don't half ass it. Practice. Practice is GOD. Then make use of the "Learn Japanese" threads on /int/

You gotta put in the time. After a year or so, you can start watching shows meant for children RAW. You still won't understand everything but if you've been diligent you should be able to understand what they're saying and it's basically a bar. If you can't understand the dialogue in something like a Super Sentai show by the 2 year mark, then you've not been trying.

Listen you stupid motherfucker, do you understand shit?

If 100,000 people each gave Crunchyroll 60 a year to fund a subscription, that's 6 million dollars. Assuming Crunchyroll keeps (and these are going to be some low ass numbers) 50% of the money for themselves, that means 3 million dollars go to buying licences. Of that, split across two dozen different studios or so, that would mean each studio got 125,000 dollars. It ends there for anime originals, and MAY be worth it, but not likely, considering that's about the budget of two workers, yearly.

Now let's say each studio then keeps 50% of the money, leaving 75,000 dollars to go to their manga adaption sources. Assuming each studio does one adaption a season, that means you split it into fourths, which leaves 18,750 dollars to go to each person. This is assuming that publishers don't also take a cut, which they almost certainly do, which would cut it in half again to 9,375 dollars a year.

That isn't even enough to pay rent for a whole year in most cities, let alone all the other bills the creators would have.

Now let's say 10,000 people each pay 15 dollars for an anime volume. That's 150,000 dollars. Assuming the publisher takes half of that, that's 75,000 that goes right to the creator of the work.

Which fucking one sounds better?

There are two phonetic alphabets, hiragana and katakana. Study them both. If you can learn them well enough in one week to read slowly then you're not too stupid to learn Japanese.

Langauges are difficult relative to each other. Japanese is considered a Tier 5 anime by the US government- the most difficult for native english speakers to learn. (Its actually starred because of its complexity) but you probably won't need the same level of japanese as a US ambassador to watch anime. English is easy to get basic conversational speaking (even easier for langauges like mandarin that aren't related but have similar word order) but is notoriously difficult at higher levels because of how context sensitive (read:punny) and completely illogical it is. I find this is true with a lot of langauges. You can learn enough to ask to use the bathroom or to watch anime and even read manga well enough just fine. Anything more than that and you need to go to Japan or take intensive courses.

Fucking exactly.

The point I was making was that the first option is trash that doesn't help creators at all. That's why the second option is so much better, it has less money at the start, but more goes to the creator in the end.

Yeah, makes me wonder why Crunchyroll and Funimation haven't closed up shop by now.

I heard Funimation only exists due to Dragon Ball Z dubs but the era of Dragon Ball is starting to fade away.

And face it, Crunchyroll ain't no Netflix.

I always wondered why Crunchyroll had an office in San Francisco anyway.

Doesn't it cost multiple arms and legs to live in San Francisco.

Makes you think that Crunchyroll subscribers are paying for the cost of Crunhcyroll having an office in a place like San Francisco than the actual anime producers because San Francisco ain't a cheap place to live at all.

Flawed comparison. In the CR case, 2 dozen studios are being funded so naturally its less per individual series. I'm sure the more popular series have much higher license fees so in the end it all balances out.

The only real difference is the 50% (or whatever it ends up at) cut that CR keeps for themselves and their employees.
The advantage of CR is the same as with netflix: People would rather pay a single monthly fee for convenient and immediate digital access than buy physical discs. Most people don't care about building a "collection". Crunchyroll's subscribers provide funds for future anime that otherwise never would have existed.

We're both right. CR has the advantage of streaming multiple things instead of buying one thing at a time. That IS more beneficial to customers when it comes to amount put in vs amount gotten.

I know that. But the point I'm trying to make is that, while all of that is true, if you're truly trying to "support the industry," then you want to put money to the source material, because then a higher cut goes right to the creator, instead of such a low amount.

In all honesty, if some streaming network could use the steaming technology that Netlfix uses, I would gladly pay for a streaming service.

How do you figure?

If we consider the dilution of money, creators are getting jack shit from a Crunchyroll subscription. Hell, creators of source material already get jackshit from a successful anime, so why would a Cruncyroll licensing fee give them any more than maybe 50 bucks?

Whereas paying for the source material right away gives a creator around half the money off the bat? A creator could get 3 to 4 thousand dollars a volume if a small percentage of people payed for the source material, whereas they get almost nothing to actually nothing from a Crunchyroll sub.

It's not advanced at all, it's just adaptative bitrate, and they have good quality videos. You can even press ctrl+alt+shift+s and select the quality yourself if your net connection isn't too good.
It's basically the same as youtube but they keep high quality source material and use modern video compression, while most regular video streaming sites kills your quality to save on bandwith.
Plus a bunch of proprietary garbage DRM on top that they add for no reason as everyone rips the videos anyways.

>still shitposting on /a/

I thought I'd have left this shithole by now, but I'm still fucking here.

No one on /a/ can learn Japanese anymore since they banned DJT.
>>
>>152414858
For 6 months. Then it's $50 a year.

>>152414853
If it brings fansubs back, then that's fine. I feel as if a portion of the anime community has died since we lost fansubs.
>>
>>152414869
What if I like the anime and not the source material?
>>
>>152414869
>ANIME IS A FUCKING ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE SOURCE MATERIAL.
What about anime that don't have a source material?

Some monkey paw shit right here

I still kind of can't believe they made a good new Hitman game after Absolution.
>>
>>152414763
You will learn to wait.

>>152414869
Also, I'm down for paying someone to translate that shit. I have money, not time to learn to nip.
>>
>>152414878
Why'd they ban DJT?
>>
>>152411786
People haven't watched Mecha anime for 5-10 years.

What?

>>152414778
The same argument against CR applies to source materials/BDs you dumb shit. That's where your mental gymnastics come in
>>
>>152414876

i'm 2 years behind you bro, but this shit hole is all I have. Enjoy the shit while you still have shit to enjoy.

>>152414674
Go hit on a girl and ask what her favorite anime is, see how that works out for you. Also enjoy the (You)

>Alright smart guy, then how the fuck am I supposed to actually support the author. Do I have to mail the goddamn cash straight to their postbox?
Pretty much. There's really not much else to do. Single artists on the west embraced Patreon, most mangakas would be happy with a salary of 3k, but I doubt japs will get on the Patreon train. Studios can kickstart their shit, but few have done so far, and KS rewards make a lot of the money go to waste too.

Time to start my one man fabsub group subbing anything other people don't. Obviously also have a donations link
>>
>>152414869
Do you have to import the source material or are localizations enough?
>>

Uh...what?

Mods tried to "ban" generals but the only one that actually left was DJT.

These boards are funny. First you hate them, then you get used to them. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them.
>>
>>152414498
In that aspect I agree. As an individual you can do better than CR.
