I know Crymore’s perfect, but how can it be *more* perfect?

Why hello there good sir

Might you have any advice for me upon this fine day?

Pretty much everything’s up for discussion – review format, content, banners, whether or not I should shave my legs… you get the idea.


If you have an opinion, lay it on me (and Caly and koku and all the secret admins) right now. I want this blog to be in top condition for what’s clearly the best anime season of the year. Help us make this a season to remember.

(That’s right, I want you to scrapbook this shit when you’re 80 and dying alone in a nursing home. If anyone will ease your passing, let it be us.)


If you don’t want to comment publicly, you can find me on IRC or shoot me an email.

It's up to you, fellow mustacheteers

The success of this mission relies on you, fellow mustacheteers



V_Victini says:

How do you improve on perfection?

Dark_Sage says:

Fuck if I know. That’s why I’m leaving it to you all.

Deadlight says:

This site is lacking a disturbing amount of ecchi. It needs more. I demand it!!!

Dark_Sage says:

I do throw ecchi in, but you’re not likely to get more than the current amount. I’m pretty good with the balance we’ve got right now.

Also, I wanna browse Crymore when I’m at work without getting fired.

2ColouredEyes says:

Which leads to less to none H articles. You need to do this.

Dark_Sage says:


Minachi says:

Asking for the impossible.

stgmefly says:

Make me admin
I wanna write sugoii reviews too

Solaristics says:

More laughable fansubs.

kayserlein says:

How about an article which deals with the Japanese obsession of throwing German into every show? I would like to see someone’s opinion who can express his view coherently and isn’t native to the language.

Dark_Sage says:

Well, it’s not just German, I’d say it’s just the West in general. Spanish, English, and French are also well represented in anime.

I’m not quite sure I could craft a good-enough article about the subject without vast overgeneralizations (eg they love French because the French seem rich, English because Japan’s BFF with America, German because lolww2, and Spanish because Tite Kubo is weird), so I’d rather leave that to someone with quite a few more qualifications in Japanese culture.

Sheep says:

The only way to go up from here is to make more anibloggers mad, they’re pretty mad and it’s pretty great.

Name goes here says:

My sentiments exactly.

Anon says:

I search Crymore on twitter now people are funny

Humanity says:

I still have yet to see this be topped.

Dark_Sage says:

Good times. Just checked out that person’s tumblr actually. They’re one of these five:

Good times indeed.

Humanity says:

What is that even supposed to be?

Dark_Sage says:

A pod.

Akatsukin says:

Thanks, now I need to go shower gomen for them.

Fred C Dobbs says:

Three words: Free Daiquiri Fridays.

Enz says:

More Hadena reviews.

And some sexy photos of you (assuming you look hot).

Dark_Sage says:

But being Sexy_Sage requires effort.

stushi says:

Not more than compiling a list of every known anime blog.

Yumi-chan says:

How about finishing Hyobu?

stushi says:


Dark_Sage says:


ZakuAbumi says:

How about a mustache mascot, going moe kawaii uguu~ with every good fansub release? I’m sure that would inspire as well as encourage countless fansubbers to give it their all!

Dark_Sage says:

It shall be considered.

CraN says:

Though not necessarily with the mustache, but the mascot idea is nice.

Anon says:

do more subs because commie and stuff.

WithoutAnyDecency says:

Need Dark_SagexXythar fanfiction.

Justinnnnnn says:

^Oh my God yes^

Teshuki says:

That would be great! *p*

HeresAnIdea says:

Work in collaboration with herkz, xythar, and margaan on a show. Tell the story of what happened.

Dark_Sage says:

Herkz on typesetting, Xythar on karaoke, and Margaan on timing… Yeah, I think I could handle that.

Hey guys, gimme a ring. We could work this out.

Might i suggest an article: “10 reasons why you shouldn’t watch anime”?

Maybe even a specific series, movie and so on.

Dark_Sage says:

If I come up with the right content. At the moment it’s slipping my mind how I could make such a post worth reading.

fohfuu says:

d_spls says:

More articles written by Mango-chan.

Dark_Sage says:

Now that’s an interesting request. If he wants to write something again, I can’t say I’d be against it. He has a lot of insight into the scene even if it does come across rather crassly.

flipr says:

If he doesn’t have anything to say, you should somehow convince koda to write something.

2ColouredEyes says:

Koda to write something? No. Koda for moral support.

Marow says:

A duet with Xythar.

Anon says:

More Hadena/Commie/shitsub reviews, and more articles mocking how fag — whoops, Fruedian slip; fansubbers have awful English.

Kawwmoi says:

More pictures of your sexy legs before and after being shaved.

Dude says:

More reviews of Hadena and Hadena-tier releases.

Hell, do reviews of multiple releases from the same group for the same show if you have to. No one reads them to see whether the releases are good or not, we just want to laugh at all the terrible.

Also, poke Calyrica to review vintage Hadena.

Dark_Sage says:

100% Hadena is not sustainable. I’d be dead a week in.

Anon says:

Man, you need to do more Hadena reviews.

The SSY article is god-tier.

Calyrica says:

Tell me what show and I’ll consider it. I don’t have a lot of time, but winter break looks free.

ZiPe says:

>sexy legs before and[…]

Lose that fake leg hair!

You’re not fooling anyone anymore!!

(PS: Just keep up the good work, btw! ;))

flipr says:

revive eclipse or the triad and make crymore their new home.

alternatively, change the site name to crymoar b/c i often type that into my browser anyway and am saddened when i realize that i’m not here (or anywhere)

jimmy says:

This isn’t really a site suggestion, but if you could put perfect English/other language subtitles on Japanese Blu-rays and have them be like $5 a volume with free worldwide shipping and change Blu-rays so they can do typesetting like computer software can, that’d be cool of you.

SomeLoser says:

Suggestion: More lollipops.

Doom44 says:

To remove the annoying line drawing characters from Review_Queue, Review_Summary, and Off_Topic titles

They been there ever since your old site was hacked and they look so 90s~

herpderp says:

Never mention windows ever again on the blog except out of distain. In my opinion, that would be the biggest improvement.

The fact that the above is all I could come up with is proof that Crymore is pretty much darn near perfect as is.

….except for some of those banners.

Xenovia says:

There are just two things you could do to improve your site.

The first is really obvious. You’re the DARK sage, so do a DARK color scheme for your site, kinda like this:

The second: Put more hentai reviews on your site!
However, just so people can browse Crymore from work instead of being productive, put only a worksafe pic for the article excerpt on the front page, leaving the juicy hentai pics to the main body of the article.

Dark_Sage says:

Crymore Halloween theme: confirmed

HmmmM says:

Need a post with a short (read: very short) summary of each upcoming anime for lazy people who can’t be bothered looking it up themselves.

Do that and I will visit your site every day until I forgot.

Your Fall 2013 Preview is on the right track, but too many words and vids.

Anon says:

You should write more posts similar to your Italics for Idiots guide; take a grammatical/syntactical aspect of editing and help not-so-bright editors (and even non-editors) improve.

Dark_Sage says:

I agree. I’m a fan of them too.

fohfuu says:

Girls crossdressing without binding their chest is my fetish.

sageman says:

collab w/ hadena. it will be glorious.

src says:

Insightful articles about fansubbing/fansubbing process. (If there is such a thing).

src says:

I almost forgot about that. I don’t know if its appropriate here, but I was thinking more of how karaoke tags are decided, etc.

More stuff like the Nisemonostory is also good. I feel bad that I forgot it.
