Would be nice to have that function in the iPad version as well, not just the history.

It would be good to see how many episodes were left to date (if you were trying to catch up) and also when the next episode is due... Currently using my goggle calendar to log when new ones are out

No update for Droid users? I like the content but the droid app makes it so hard to use that I often just go back to Netflix.

It would be great if we could get notifications in email of updates to the shows in our queue

Will there be some kind of addition to the frontpage to easily get access to the shows in the queue? Like subscriptions on youtube.


It's been almost a year since people have been asking for this, is it really that difficult to implement?

Really liking the new queue with the discriptions, image, and dropdown to episode select feature. I kindof still miss the promotional art but its still pretty nice.

I just noticed the change to the queue page, too. It was a surprise, but it's not bad. There are some advantages to the more compact list style before, but the new queue adds some features that weren't there before, so I'm sure I'll adjust quickly enough. Unfortunately, I just watched two episodes -- the latest for Phi Brain and Saint Seiya Omega -- and the "next up" episode for both is 1. It looks like something's gone wrong here, since it should be 34 and 10, respectively. Other series appear to be showing the correct next episode right now, but that could change once I start watching them. Could you take a look at this and try to make sure the "next up" episode is correct? Thanks!

P.S. -- I've noticed that some episodes, the 3 minute ones in particular, don't seem to register as completely watched even though they are. I'm not sure why this is happening, but I used to frequently get last week's episode when I wanted this week's for shows like Recorder and Randsell. It might be worth looking into as well.

WTH did you do the queue? It's not functional. I know what the characters look like I don't need pix. You've eliminated our ability to link to the main page of a show. You go directly to the video. What if you don't want to watch that? You forced us from 'watched' to 'my queue' and now you've changed that. Ever heard of the old adage, 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'? A list was perfectly fine. It quicker and simpler to read. You could glance and go. Now it's just clunky.

Like? Please tell me what I am not seeing.

Re: Recorder Randsell: Did you go to the end of the video? Sometimes my links do that to me. When I watch the last episode of a title for the day, I go to the end. I don't do it with every anime just a couple and RR is one of them. If I don't go to the very end, I start with the previous episode's credits or wherever I stopped. Hope that helped.

Re: Recorder Randsell: Did you go to the end of the video?


To be fair, what I'm seeing now might have been there before, but not as obvious. But here's what I noticed:

* Simulcast series list the availability of the next episode -- e.g., right now Dusk Maiden of Amnesia (Monday) says episode 9 is up in 3 days for premium members. This helps with knowing when to stop watching simulcasts (when you're caught up).
* The recently watched list shows the last 5 episodes instead of 3. Could be useful in some cases.
* If you click the small down arrow on the right side of a series box, it pulls down a menu showing the whole list of available episodes, with links to "show information" and "remove". This will be helpful for things like Recorder and Randsell that don't want to play the newest episode for some reason -- I can force it to rather than doing a "play next" thing and having to go to the most recent one after that.
* The up arrow on the left side of the series block will send it to the top of the queue, kind of like how Netflix can. Since series do (should?) get added at the bottom, but I put simulcasts at the top, this will save a little time when I reorder things each season.
* I think the separate page with a long history of viewed episodes is new, but I'm not sure. I don't usually view my history; the recently watched episodes were usually enough.

For a bit, I thought drag-and-drop reordering was missing, but then realized you have to do it from that small vertical bar on the left side of the series block; you can't just grab it from anywhere on the block. The main down side I've seen is that everything takes up more space. The old list used to be much more compact, which I frequently prefer. But the additional things displayed now do help, so I don't think the change is too bad.

Regarding Recorder and Randsell, yes, I let the episodes run out to the end. I do with pretty much everything I watch on here, because I also found out about the automatic restarting if you don't. While that is definitely a nice feature, it seems to be working improperly in at least some cases, and it looks like it's mostly the 3-minute shows to me. Good idea, but I've already tried this out, and it doesn't seem to be the cause.

I hope this helps!
