    TV Tokyo to Stream Naruto via Crunchyroll Worldwide *updated Dec 13, 2008*

    The Japanese broadcaster TV Tokyo has announced that it will begin streaming English-subtitled episodes of the Naruto anime series, about one hour after their Japanese broadcast, to paid monthly subscribers worldwide on the Crunchyroll video service on January 8, 2009.

    Crunchyroll will then provide free Internet streaming of the episodes seven days after the paid subscribers see them. This coincides with when the online video services Joost and Hulu are providing their own free streaming of the same episodes via Viz Media. Viz Media announced earlier today that it will also begin hosting free streams of the new episodes on the official Naruto.com website on January 15.

    On January 8, Crunchyroll will stop accepting user-submitted videos and other content from individuals, and only host videos approved by copyright holders. Gonzo and Toei Animation are two other major Japanese copyright holders of anime that decided to stream on Crunchyroll. ANN interviewed Crunchyroll founder Vu Nguyen in March.

    *edit December 13, 2008*

    Crunchyroll has updated their news about streaming anime with this HD teaser for Shippuuden. It's the latest intro ('CLOSER' by Joe Inoue) in both 480p and 720p. The streaming quality is really good, and the fact that there's no download option doesn't bother me that much.

    An hour after it airs in Japan, eh? I guess we don't have to wait for the raws to even come out now! Of course, that's if you subscribe to crunchyroll. I'll still be doing it!

    Warning

    Crunchyroll now offers to collect a kind of bonus points 'by taking surveys or signing up for things' which can be exchanged into a free premium account. Sadly, they seem to not be aware that the majority of members in need for a free account are teenager and yet they put up with this very insecure solution, not giving any warnings.

    Don't do that. Only a part of these are indeed free. Members reported hidden costs and spyware warnings. Aside from that, it asks for personal data such as name, address, email and partly even the social security number. They will spam you forever with snail mail, phone calls and email.

    If you really need to try it out - use fake data, create an anonymous email account just for the spam and be sure to have a updated detection software installed. But also be aware that they can legally backtrack you through your IP when you sign a contract with fake data. This stuff isn't free for fun and your data is wanted for making lots of money. Once you gave them out, there's no turning back. Your personal information get sold to companies for high prices, so the people who collect them try any kind of tricks on you.

    It isn't that much to subscribe, to be honest. I just looked and it's $9 for 3 months, $18 for 6 months, and $36 for 12 months. Honestly, you don't save any money if you do the 12 months one, but at least you won't have to be charged every 3 months.

    I think I may subscribe, unless DB keeps on subbing Shippuuden. But bring on the DVDs ala Gurren Lagann (aka 9 episodes per volume, with Japanese audio and English subs)!

    Re: TV Tokyo to Stream Naruto via Crunchyroll Worldwide

    It also depends if it is just streaming or available for download too. What abt quality?If they can provide better quality than DB, then I will go for crunchyroll. I still think Naruto should be subbed in high quality video (MKV file ..could be just 350 MB file) but looks way better than these AVI files.

    Looks like Videos are available to download but only to NA currently. I hope after they start Naruto series, it is available to ROW too.

    You should also state that Viz themselves will be streaming the episodes as well. Also, according to Maile Flanagan, she's begun to work on the dubbing of Naruto Shippuuden. Go here, if you want to know more: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...ogID=444489228


    On the Crunchyroll thing, I am staying a free user, I don't mind waiting a week to get my Naruto fix.

    Viz media will show the streaming one week later for free, I wouldn't mind waiting a week. It would be good to support legal anime subs. At least the anime industry is moving forward.

    Will you be able to see it, TDA? Knowing that you're in the UK, I just wonder if you'd be able to see it via Viz's website.

    LOL good point, but aren't the subs suppose to be worldwide?

    If not, that sucks.

    But I don't see why they would limit the audience to a specific country/continent when there are many fans worldwide.

    Well, according to the press release by Crunchyroll, it is worldwide (I wonder if TV Tokyo meant that for only the English-speaking people of the world). I suppose only time will tell.

    You don't need to subscribe. You can join, which I think is still free. I am a free user of Crunchyroll, and I am not going to be bothered by the wait of a week for the Naruto episodes, since I may just use the official site, or Hulu for that.

    I know I'm late, but still I want to say this (and post links to it as well)

    Viz stated that they would release New Naruto Shippuuden animated episodes on http://naruto.com for free. It will begin on January 15, 2009, when "the latest episode for NARUTO SHIPPUUDEN will be available for free viewing on the ultimate destination for anything NARUTO – the official NARUTO website, www.Naruto.com, within days of its original airdate in Japan. A new English-subtitled episode will be added every Thursday thereafter.

    On January 2nd, Viz Media will also debut, for free, 8 uncut, English-subtitled episodes from the beginning of the NARUTO SHIPPUDEN series on www.Naruto.com. Each Friday thereafter there will be an additional 8 uncut, English-subtitled episodes added on Naruto.com until the series eventually catches up to the current third season of the hit program. Also, coming this week, an exclusive sneak peek of NARUTO SHIPPUDEN (English-subtitled) debuting on Naruto.com."

    This is a significant step forward for anime everywhere. Hopefully it will bring the community closer together. that said, i hope we're not taken advantage of.
    *Have you taken a look at Onepunch-Man? You should consider it, it's a great manga!
