Its true that ADV lost the licensed to the most beautiful movie that I reviewed yesterday. Just recently, Crunchyroll obtain the rights to redistribute it with a re-do of the whole dub. However, someone at AnimeSuki became dissatisfied when Crunchyroll decided to be an ass and ruin the ending of the movie.
One sour note – believe it or not, Viz Cinema cut off the screening in the middle of “One More Time, One More Chance”! Seriously – with about 5 minutes left, the house lights came up and some moron from Crunchyroll started telling everyone that they were going to cut the movie short so that they could start the VIP reception in the lobby.
Because of their dicky move, I decided to boycott Crunchyroll for this despicable act… I mean, such a good movie doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment. It was also disrespectful towards Makoto Shinkai who made this masterpiece. They owe everyone an apology for doing this…
Then again, it doesn’t matter anyway because I don’t like Crunchyroll and I don’t like their practices of locking users into the flash player or the iphone app for streaming without the option to download the episode to any device.
