I'm an apprentice! I should get discounts aswell!
And there's a lot of colleges outside the US, so students there (here) should also get their discounts..

we would like to. any idea how we can verify students outside the US are actually a student?

in the US, only schools can use .edu address, so it is a straightforward way to check using .edu

Sites other than CR sub them that fast sometimes.


those are just ripped videos from Crunchyroll with stolen subs.


There are sites that actually get them done before Crunchyroll does and are of comparable or better quality.


Yes, but those are illegal and don't help the anime industry. <_<. It your talking about AoD, it sucks like hell.


Sadly, in few rare cases the quality of both subs and video is way better... How come a fasubber uploads material in full HD while we're stuck with 720p?...

Here in the UK we have .ac.uk . My student email is something like: studentid@student.college.ac.uk

This is taken from Wiki:
.ac.uk - academic (tertiary education, further education colleges and research establishments) and learned societies
.sch.uk - local education authorities, schools, primary and secondary education, community education

Full HD video is only available from blu-ray releases which aren't available until months after the show airs on TV, which is too late for Crunchyroll, and a lot of anime blu-rays aren't actually in full HD anyway. Any 'full HD' episodes released shortly after airing in Japan are merely upscales of 720p video and aren't really any better quality.

That's actually very rare. There are Americans/English speaking Japs who live in Japan, and stream the episodes.

The key part was "1 hour after they air in japan". Crunchyroll can do that because the person(s) handling the translation and subtitling receive the episode before it airs. Some series are even faster. Squid Girl 2, for example, is actually posted here 30 minutes after it airs in Japan.

Obviously anyone recording it off the air in Japan isn't going to have that advantage. If you've ever set down and tried to subtitle something yourself, you would know doing it right isn't a quick and easy process, even before adding translation into the mix. A typical speed sub would take at least 3-4 hours, and even then, unless the person was so good at translation and timing they could do it in their sleep, the results would be poor.

Crunchyroll hasn't released many details behind the subtitling process for their episodes (likely because it varies depending on the licensor involved), but based on information I've seen from someone that worked on the shows at NicoNico.com, it seems safe to assume that even in the worst case scenario they have a day to work on the translation and subtitling, and usually more. When ANN was simulcasting Oreimo for example, it was made clear they had the episode 1 week before they aired it. (They posted the episodes 6 days after they first aired in Japan, but the episode that was leaked from their server got out a day before it was broadcast in Japan).
