"So what if nyaa and horriblesubs are down, just use Crunchyroll"
I never use Crunchyroll. It sucked when it launched and I always assumed it still sucks now. A few weeks ago I decided that since most stuff worth watching airs on CR now and I usually just download horriblesubs releases anyway I would try to watch shit on CR to support the idea of shows being legally available for English-speaking audiences.
Two minutes into the first episode, the Flash player crashed and it no longer worked for any video I tried watching on the site. Page refreshes, browser restarts, and cache wipes didn’t fix anything, so I just downloaded the episode from horriblesubs instead.
It’s nice to know my prejudice against streaming sites was well-founded. Good luck CR, I’ll try again in two years.
