Now, if only Crunchyroll could see numbers like this. I mean, 70k isn't bad at all, but over a mill is spectacular.

I know you could argue "yeah, well Nico Nico isn't just anime"; neither is CR. It simulcasts and streams J-drama, K-drama, Taiwanese drama, variety shows, as well as anime.

Great news, either way.

Youtube should have paid subscription for premium options.

Nico Nico is based in Japan... which is where alot more people like anime than in America... it makes sense, and good for them for getting so much money, now get some good quality out there. But i still think the comments thing is cool

CR doesn't do music vids as well do they? NND has the majority of all Vocaloid music as well as live bands too, plus games. NND is simalcasting fate/Zero in multipal languages, Can CR do that too?

It's the equivalent of Hulu and live-action shows. Laughing

CR only shows non anime stuff to the US. The rest of the world gets a fraction of the anime that the US gets as well, (although that seems to be changing lately) yet we still have the same subscription prices. So, until they reduce their subscription prices for those outside the US, I am not going to subscribe. Either that, or learn to use proxies.
