golf nine - Subtitles on phone but not tv??
So I updated to the new update, 4.0, and I love the new look. I’m a premium member so I was able to watch everything with no problems. I’m in love with tower of god. I’ve watched over the past month and half since it’s been out ( covid attacked one piece, black clover, and boruto) and cant get enough. A little rushed but I have faith from what I’ve seen. My issue is that I’ve been watching tower of god through airplay and, as of the new update to 4.0, was wondering where the subtitles went on my tv. I messed around with the settings but couldn’t figure out why this was happening and couldn’t figure it out. I tried showing my dad My Hero Academia off the app yesterday and figured out where the subtitles went... they appeared on my phone in small text. I love your service and think it’s great but if this problem we’re to be solved It would be incredible. Everything else is solid, keep doing what you do🎉🎉🎉
Update: July 6: now none of my stuff works now. Do not cancel your premium rn. You will not get it back. I have been paying 7.99 since the start of July with no actual benefits. This is disgusting!!! Fix this Crunchyroll and then I’ll change my rating.
Update: July 8: problem solved checked my email and paid at the website. Closed the Crunchyroll app then signed in. God of High Schools 🔥. Nothing more to say
sk8rboy656 - Some pros and cons
So I’m going to start with the cons first of an uncontrollable amount of ads when I’m watching anime and I get one or two or even three ads I’m ok with but when I’m watching a 20 to 30 minute episode I’m getting over 10 ads per episode then it’s getting pretty annoying because it’s extremely hard to finish an episode for example I watch a 30 minute episode and I’m getting as many ads as I get it turns from a 30 minute episode to over an hour episode because of how many ads this is a problem you need to fix but what’s good about your app is it has a lot of different choices of anime and a lot of different genres to choose from I enjoy the app a lot but you need to cut the add limit dim from over ten to 3 and under and a lot of your app users would be a lot more satisfied and there would be nothing more to complain about so please fix this bug we would all appreciate it and we would use the app a lot more then trying to dig around the App Store and google play store and even the internet to try and watch our episode because we are so worried about getting as many ads as we are getting so please fix this app and listen to our complaints it would make using your app a lot easier thank you for your time and keep up your good work and good luck for the future.
That One Popular Review Guy - Ads
Let me start off by saying, I LOVE anime, iv seen Crunchyroll sponsoring many different you tubers, iv seen ads all the time of it and iv always watched anime on it, but the one thing I’m tired of is the fact that their is so many ads, I get that you probably can’t get rid of them because of how many people have premium but can you atleast shorten the amount? I’m watching episodes of anime’s and I’m getting 3 ads at the beginning another 2 like 7 minutes in ect. It’s making it hard to even watch the anime, I would give 5 stars but the ads is the only thing stopping me, I know you have them to make money, which then drives people to buy premium and then you get money from that so you can support this app with a constant stream of anime, however can you atleast space them out? Like 1-2 at the beginning another 1-2 at the end? That way we can enjoy the anime and you get to show the ads, more ads raises your revenue however when you have millions of people and a large selection of anime ON top of premium, I think you can get rid of a few, I hope you take this into consideration. I really want to give this app 5 stars but I can’t. I know I won’t get a response and if I do it will probably be something along the lines of you read my review. I’m just saying what’s on my mind and everyone else’s, the amount of ads is horrible. If you do read this, thank you for your time.
prinncess unicorn - Amazing app and quality overall but problem with the premium options
I think that Crunchyroll is and amazing app with efficient streaming options. The amount of content they have is amazing and the new format is excellent. I have so many positive things to say about this app, but I do have a slight issue that just makes no sense. The new premium options is kinda stupid if you ask me. There is 3 new different levels of premium if I remember correctly and each level unlocks new stuff and costs more money. I understand that they are trying to make more profits but this is kinda stupid and makes me mad. If I wanted to do a certain thing and was prepared to pay for the premium and went to do it and it turns out that there are 3 different levels for unlocking different things? Like I would be furious, i know it’s for profit but like you had it going pretty well with the first premium system and the online shop, but then you add 3 levels of premium? I think that your also making it hard for people who already had premium beforehand, they have to adjust to a whole new system and decide what to do. I just think it’s stupid and extra and serves no purpose. You can fight me on this but I’m not budging.
Shinobi484 - Good program but has account issues
First the good. Crunchyroll has wide array of shows to watch and is fairly easy to navigate. I especially like their updated shows section.
The con and its a big one. Crunchyroll does not offer a 2-factor authentication for their accounts. On top of that they do not have a customer service number to call when you have account issues. My self and multiple others (check their own forums) have had their accounts hacked and simply changing your password does not help. I will say their fraud detection did help by sending me a email noting suspicious activity. However after taking recommended steps the very next day I got an email saying the email associated with my account has changed. So I will not be renewing a subscription and canceling my account once this subscription ends. Luckily my subscription is through iTunes because you can’t cancel your account with an active subscription so if you have a credit card on file with Crunchyroll and someone hacks your account your only real option is to cancel your card. So if they fix this issue I will consider starting a new account but until then I will not use this anymore. I truly hope someone from Crunchyroll takes note of this concern because it seems to have gone ignored for far to long.
Recommendation: if you do decide to use Crunchyroll I highly recommend you get your subscription through Apple. At least that way your information will be more secured.
Gee_Pineapple11 - Review after 7 years
Let me start by saying I still love Crunchyroll BUT I think with the surge of streaming services I believe Crunchyroll has some catching up to do. Not so much in the content department but in the app and heck even the website but I’ll stick to reviewing the app. I’ve been premium for more than 3 years and yes the no ads is nice but how about creating profiles like Netflix or Disney? My wife and I have to a lot in our queue and sometimes we watch the same shows so changing the episode between sittings is weird. Another thing is how about implementing skip intro and continue to next episode? Don’t get me wrong I love anime intros but when I’m heavily into a show it’s nice to just get back to the story. I feel besides dark mode there hasn’t been much added to the app UI to make it great. The content is amazing and I love that it’s available so promptly. I’m only rating 3 stars due to the fact that it hasn’t been keeping up with other services and sometimes song subtitles interfere with character subtitles making it difficult to read (the song and dialogue literally are swapping up and down so I can’t even see a pattern, maybe use a different color for the song subs). Again it’s 3 stars for the app not Crunchyroll as a whole cause they’re obviously 5 stars but I can’t let my bias stop me from acknowledging the lack of implementation that most streaming services already have.
Boomman2020 - Just My opinion
Ok The New version of this is cool and I like the new style but the old version is kind of better like it to cramped in most of the screens trying to click on one this and then click the other and also in you get a ad it plays like 5 ads in one or plays a ad and breaks everything and then have to reload the app but I know this is new and fix’s are coming but i like the old version if you can maybe have like a switch in the setting old version to the new one that be great but this version it just confusing and to organized and watching a episode or starting one up the room that you try to watch the show is :/ I don’t know what to say about that but hey I know that Covid-19. Going and you are trying to make the app more user friendly and it a hard time but the new version of this is ok but this is just my opinion and keep up the work.
Edit:Well ok the ad are sensitive if you barely touch them it sends you to to a page to another page which is dumb because let say you accidentally leave a episode and there a ad well you can’t start the episode and the ad plays again and it glitches out also the ad doesn’t play so that episode is gone in your book and some episode are mix and are missing content that I don’t remember watching and so The whole show is broken but what I’m saying is Crunchyroll is broken and can barely be used
Wait of time.... - The ads are flippin’ crazy! 😤
I just recently got into anime, considering I’m quarantined, and I was watching hunter x hunter on Netflix. Netflix didn’t support all the seasons, it only went up to 4, so I did some research and found this app. I was really excited when I saw that it had all 148 episodes, and while scrolling I saw some other anime’s that looked interesting! When I began watching their was an advertisement, which I didn’t mind. I expected for there to be around 2-3 per episode. At first, everything was going really smoothly! Nothing too out of the ordinary. Then after about 3 episodes in, the ads started to pile up. At first I tried not to mind it, after all I was watching all the episodes for free. Then it became REALLY hard to ignore. I started to get 3-5 ads just before It started, then about 3-5 more later on in the ep! It would’ve been much more bare-able if the ads weren’t so glitchy. At first, I thought it was just my internet. I came to look at the reviews to see if anyone else was having the same problem, and many are! The ads load for about 10-15 seconds, and then run very slowly. For example, if each ad was initially 10 seconds long, and there were 4 advertisements, that’d be around an extra minute and a half of pointless waiting!
On behalf of all Crunchyroll users, please reduce the amount of ads per episode, and fix the freezing of the ads!
marphobic - needs some improvements!!
so, ive had this app for awhile now and i thought i should make a review. first of all, this app is amazing!! is not complicated/confusing at all + i understood it right when i downloaded it!! i like the fact that there is a history as well!! i like the way all the anime is displayed too. i love how theres dramas as well!! but theres only two things.. the search bar. yes and the ads. first, the search bar. the search bar is very confusing because every time i try to search up an anime it shows nothing? i even tried searching up an anime thats already on crunchyroll to see if it would work. it still didnt. i feel like thats one thing you guys have to fix!! another thing is, the ads. in the beginning of every anime there is a starting ad. for what? i dont understand that. also, why is there 5 ads in a row? if theres going to be ads (especially FIVE) please put a skip button at least. i have a problem with the ads at the beginning of the anime because there is already one at the end. i do NOT want my anime to start with a 20 second ad when im done with another 20 second ad from the end of another anime episode. i also think there should be more animes!! and even movies probably!! overall this app is really good but the things i stated need some fixing.
DaughterNature - Anime episodes refuse to load
Ok I love this app I really do I would rate it five stars but the problems that this app has makes me want to rate it only one star but since I love the app I gave it two stars. I really don’t care that I have to watch around 13 ads per episode even though it’s annoying and they repeat the same ads I get it you developers want your money and you deserve it for all your hard work. Sometimes the ads don’t want to load and give me a black screen for five minutes so I have to close the app and try to watch the episode I was watching again and force my way through another ad to get back to where I was. But I don’t mind too much as long as it isn’t frequent but it is very frequent. The fact that the ads refuse to load after 5 minutes maybe longer is extremely irritating. However, the fact that this app doesn’t want to load anime episodes after I watched 13 ads that refuse to load makes me very disappointed. The whole purpose of this app is to be able to provide its users with anime episodes. It is very upsetting to be watching your favorite series and for it to be interrupted multiple times throughout the episode not because of ads but because it is having trouble loading and it won’t load after like 5 minutes or longer sometimes. Please fix this issue developers I don’t care that I have to watch 13 ads per episode I just want to watch anime.
Kitty_Nina101 - Ads
This whole app is fine by itself but the ads are unreasonable. I’m 3 minutes into an episode and it’s already given me 12 ads. I would rate this app 3 stars instead of 2 but the whole thing is super glitchy and just pauses at random times. I know for a fact that it’s not my WiFi because I’ve been disconnecting and reconnecting to see if any thing works. I’ve restarted my phone multiple times but it’s no use. The 23 minute episodes I’ve been watching has turned into 40 minutes each because of the ads. I watch 5 minutes, 10 ads in a row. Another 5 minutes, another 10 ads. It’s unbelievable. I get that this is how you earn money but I still don’t think it’s worth sacrificing other people’s enjoyment for. Every time I click that go forward or backward 10 seconds button, it’s takes 5 minutes just to find that certain place. God forbid we tap on the screen to pause or exit the app or we just get 20 more ads thrown in our face. I just wanna say that I mean no hate from this review. Your app is great but sometimes thing just don’t work out well. Im also writing this for other people who wish to download this app. A lot of people are writing good reviews so I thought that I might let them get a feel of all the downsides they would be going through by downloading this.
TLDR: I got 12 ads so far and I’m only 4 minutes into the episode. Consider this before you download.
Fieieiri - Can’t even contact support
I used to have a premium membership about a year ago and decided to renew. I wanted to buy the standard premium membership again but it says on the app that they will give me a 14 day free trial and charge me for the membership after the trial ends, not a problem, I was actually happy about this. The problem is that the trial doesn’t even work. I check my iTunes subscriptions and it says that it is currently active but when I go into the app to watch a show, I still have to watch ads! That’s not even the worst part, whenever the ads start to load, I get a black loading screen, then it just freezes up and won’t do anything unless I force close out of the app. I can’t even watch a video with ads!!! I tried to just buy the membership outright without the 14 day trial since I was going to pay for it anyway, but I can’t get past the 14 day trial offer. Whenever you tap on the button to upgrade your account, it takes you to the 14 day free trial offer( which doesn’t work no matter how many times I retry it) and it won’t let me bypass the offer so I can just buy the membership, it’s like they don’t want my money! I tried contacting support on the “help” section in the app, AND SURPRISE SURPRISE THE APP FREEZES WHEN YOU TRY TO GET TO THE “CONTACT US” PART! I used to love watching my favorite anime on crunchyroll but I don’t think I’ll ever be paying for this service again after spending hours just trying to buy a membership unsuccessfully.
Gbashi - Useless unless you pay
I honestly wish I could give it less than 1 star. I’ve only been using the app for three days and I have given up. I understand that the app works fine if you pay for a subscription, however, developers should understand that not everyone can afford to pay a monthly fee just to watch anime. If they’re going to offer a free alternative and make you watch ads to compensate, the least they could do is make sure the free version actually works- otherwise just don’t offer it! Don’t make people waste their time! The first day this app worked great- I don’t care if I have to watch ads or even if the ads repeat. I understand it’s free so I don’t mind it. However, yesterday, I started to notice that the app freezes whenever an ad is about to play- the screen goes black and that’s it. There is nothing you can do but exit the app and restart it. Initially this only happened a few times, but now it’s to the point I can’t even START watching an episode because it freezes. I can restart the app 12 times (which I have), and it does the exact same thing each time. I’m done. I’m done using this app, wasting my time and dealing with this frustration. And now, even if I could or wanted to, there is NO WAY I’m ever going to give my money to Crunchyroll. If you’re going to give a free service and make it as crappy as possible just to get people to buy the subscription- don't even offer it to begin with. It’s low, a cheap trick. Just don’t.
YouShouldSponsorMe - Too many adds ( owner read this you could get your sales up )
Ugh! Ad overload. On each of the episodes i get 9 ads to 15 ads! We should get 6 at the most ads instead! A lot of my friends are persistent and don’t buy the crunchyroll premium membership because they know that its all worthless and cost too much money in a year. I have an idea Crunchyroll, make the person watching anime have an option. When they go on their first episode, they could be given the choice to watch all the ads at once ( addition ads if you want probably 1 addition ad ) because you get bad reviews because people want to get rid of the ad first! If you want some money, you could make it cost $0.99. It works! I told my friends about this and I asked them, “ would you buy this deal,” they of course agreed because it is a fair price for the option to get rid of the ads first rather than watching “ barbeque ads “ while a moment of crying
( I deleted some of the review but now that I have crunchyroll premium it puts a different mood to the anime and it’s super nice, though next time for crunchyroll regular membership, you should add the advertisements to be about that anime if possible or atleast about anime only )
cas_jeager - Several errors and to many adds
I love Crunchyroll but the so called “video error” and the “trial error” along with the “connection loss” it gets very annoying, I’m sitting right by my WiFi box and all the sudden a pop up tab shows up in my screen saying that I have lost connection, I clearly had connection as I was connected to the WiFi the whole time but whenever it pops up it won’t let me leave the tab no matter how many times I press retry. The video error is very confusing as I have to stop and sit there for thirty mins to try and find out what the error is, I have tried to restart the app, I have exited out of it and went back in and tried to watch it again but the video error just kept popping back up. Every time I get an error I have to delete the app because the error will just keep coming back up on my screen even though I have done everything to try and get it to stop, I have re downloaded the app at least 19 times and I just got it 2 days ago. And the situation with the adds is stupid, I get 15 to 20 adds every time, I’m only watching 20-30 minute episodes and I spend at least 10 minutes every time watching one round of adds, and the there are 4 rounds of adds in each episode. It gets quite annoying, I hope they figure out something because this is getting annoying
Guy29373939584 - Better, now that the new update was released
This update was insane! It added a new layout to everything in a good way. The main thing I will talk about is the amount of ads there are.
The ads are way toned down compared to the last update. There are 6 ads you will see per episode. This is great, compared to the 10 that it was last time. Even if you think that’s too much, there’s a premium that cost money. I mainly wanted to talk about what this update changed which was layout, and amount of ads. The layout was changed, I like it the new way, but it’s just preference. If you don’t like it, you’ll get used to it eventually. They have also fixed many bugs including the one where, if you press the play button on the show while the ad is loading, the show will play while the ad is, that wouldn’t be a problem if you could see the show and not here the ad. They fixed it in this update. They are making this better. There also MIGHT be an occasional bug that MIGHT not load the ads. I’m not saying anything about anything, but I MIGHT be trying to figure it out so I COULD POSSIBLY use it for every ad, ;)
Bob Kerstetter - App with identity crisis
Crunchyroll publishes awesome anime. But the app has an identity crisis. Login with a paid subscriber account and everything works great. Five stars. Seriously. It is very well done. But — and this is huge — not everyone can afford the monthly fees and the execution of the advertising ruins the app. No stars. Crunchyroll needs the advertising to fund the delivery of no-cost anime to its free subscribers. It is the TV broadcasting business model. No problem. But the technology used to insert the ads fails to match the quality of the overall app. The ads lock up the app. They also repeat themselves three times in a row in the same ad break. And while the ads are supposed to be targeted to the interests of the viewers, they are not. If Crunchyroll could get the advertising to work correctly, advertising could possibly make more money per user than paid subscriptions. Determining the interests of viewers is pretty easy. You just ask them. Do interesting ads and people will click them. Streaming technology is good enough to never lock up an app. And never repeat ads during the same break. I will never buy a Volvo no matter how many times you run the ad. I'm a Subaru guy. You should already know that. Have Subaru tell me about its awesome technology and I will click the ad to find out more info. Everyone wins — Crunchyroll, advertisers and anime fans. Fix it please.
Llama&Alpacas - Uncontrollable ads!
In order to actually watch a show, you have to sit through so many ads it’s unbelievable and unacceptable. In my experience, my screen will just go black and an ad will play when I first click on episode. Then, it’ll load and I go down to the bottom to skip through the intro and as if the app is punishing me for doing so, it’ll just give me ads! No joke, it’ll play an ad then another and another, etc. There will be no option to skip ads, exit out of them, anything! Really, you just get stuck in a cycle of ads restarting! Seriously, this matter needs to be addressed. I’d have to exit out of the app. It was so bad once (I sat through 3 ads in counting) and I closed the app. Then I went back in and just when I went to keep watching my episode, not only did it start it completely over, it spammed me with ads!
I deleted it. End of story. I don’t think you should have to pay money for good service. You wouldn’t pay your waiter constantly at a restaurant to get them to perform a nice service with a good attitude, would you? Should you have to? No! So I think, you shouldn’t have to pay the app for good service and no nonstop ads! I get it if you’re on free and you get ads, but having them play nonstop is unacceptable. And I get it, you have to pay the people who work for you, but not by torturing us who download into getting premium by spamming us with ads upon ads upon ads.
PlumBoy5 - It’s a good app for anime, with one issue
I’ve been a premium user for almost a year now and I really enjoy a lot of the content on here. It’s got a lot of new series that come out with episodes really fast along with a lot of older favorites. I mainly used the app on my Xbox but have switched to using it on my phone for the most part due to being away from my console. I enjoy using it on my phone just as much as I did on my Xbox but I have ran into an issue after the recent update. For some reason when I try to watch any show the video does not play at all. I will press the start button but nothing. It just displays a black screen but nothing happens. I’ve tried on multiple different occasions to play shows and same thing. I found a workaround where if I delete the app and re install it fixes the problem temporarily but eventually I have to delete and re download again... I read that it could be internet issues but everything else works on my phone just fine so I’ve ruled that out. It’s getting pretty annoying so I’m hoping this problem is known about and there will be a fix soon since this is an awesome streaming service. Besides this one issue I recommend using this app if you’re an anime fan
ALonelyWalker - Bugs are annoying but anime is good
I mean the only thing that really stops me from rating five stars is the amount of bugs with the app. I feel like it’s gotten worse since 2 years ago. The site crashes whenever a popular anime episode is released I assume because of high traffic, certain anime have weird audio noises, it doesn’t let me click any episode in the all episodes screen except maybe episode 1 or 2, it logs me out in the middle of an episode or just whenever I close the app, it doesn’t load the new updated episodes screen occasionally, I can’t pause the episode anymore if I’ve hit the rewind 10s button, and the list goes on. I appreciate the anime in a convenient user friendly app, but the bugs are getting worse than what you would expect in a Bethesda game. Oh, and this isn’t directly related to the app, but crunchyroll customer support or service or whatever is garbage. It’s slow and not helpful at all. I tried telling them about the audio problems but it wasn’t worth waiting on slow replies and generic unhelpful replies telling me to redownload the app. I’ve been able to tolerate these things up until now but if they don’t do something about these bugs then I’m just not going to keep giving them my money. It’s pretty simple
Qinqin Xian - Not on the great side..
So I tried this a few days ago without premium and I have some issues and some positive stuff. First, going for the positive, the variation of anime you have seems to contain a lot of good stuff. There were so many animes that are hard to find for free that you have put In there. I really like that. However, there are a ton of issues I have encountered in this app. I don’t really mind the adds, I understand you need the income, and I respect that, but sometimes I just wish you guys would put a skip button. It’s highly annoying when watching the episodes and having to wait for an ad to finish smack in the middle of an intense part. The major issue with this is that sometimes, when watching an episode, the anime would randomly stop and the play button would not work. So then I tried getting out and trying later, and nothing changed. I deleted the app and tried again, and the outcome was the same. Something weird is that the specific episode I was watching had the issue, but every other episode didn’t. What was REALLY irritating was in that episode, if is went ten seconds further and it reached the ad part, the add would work even if the freakin anime didn’t. I am highly disappointed. The people who made this, I thank you for the app, but it still needs a lot more improvement.
Sir Colt - Best anime app
Friend turned me on to CRoll a few years back. Haven’t looked back since! Went premium right away, and honestly, I don’t even care that it went to 7.99. I canceled my Netflix in favor of it. I watch Crunchyroll probably 5-6 days a week. My queue is a mile long and I’m still trying to catch up. I’ve seen more shows than I can keep track of, and even rewatched some that I’d already seen, completely forgetting I had already seen them. They have the newest shows during the hottest trends, and with the fastest turnaround time between Japan’s original air time and their stream release. It’s literally like same-day. Back in the day we had to torrent shows and find awful sites to try and get anime from, and some of it (most of it) wasn’t even legal. Or the subs were done by fan groups that got a lot wrong. If you’re an anime fan, skip the other garbage and just drop the 8 bucks a month for premium. It’s worth it. Not to mention that I’ve met some of the staff at Otakon and they’re genuinely cool people. I’ll gladly give them my cash to support what they’re doing. They do it better than everyone else. Thanks, CRoll!
DraconikWarlock - Great Concept with Too Many Bugs and Ads
My experience with this app has been mixed. I love that it offers free anime and manga most of which is quality stuff and not cheap knockoffs or filler. However, each episode of whatever anime you watch is filled with anywhere from 12-15 unskippable 30 second ads. These ads interrupt the episode (usually at breaks in the episode or before the credits roll) and play around 3-4 at a time. The ads are really annoying. They are pervasive. You can’t skip to another section without watching all the ads that were designated before then. If you accidentally rewind before the ad, bad luck: you have to watch two minutes of ads again. All of this directs you to buy one of the premium packages available. The cheapest one is $8 which is very expensive for what it offers. This would all be tolerable except for the bugs. Sometimes the video buffers and when I tried to buy one of the premium packages, something went wrong and I still was required to watch the ads. The purchase history said that I bought the free trial but the app disagrees. If the developers improved it so that there were less ads, more bearable ad breaks, or a cheaper premium subscription; the app would be a lot better.
anastasia.reed - For real
If you guys are going to put stuff that may have many other episodes or movies or whatever you should put them all. Like black butler for instance. Pretty sure there is a book of Atlantic, you should put that and there is black butler in wonderland or Ciel in wonderland but that should be added too. Asking the sailor moon series I know for a fact that the sailor moon on there now is the new version I can tell by how she transforms, I think the other sailor moon movies or episodes should be on here as well. I could tell by the transformation as I recal her arm never looked like spaghetti and they never changed into sailor senshi like that. Also there should be less ads! There is constantly so many ad pop ups it drives me nuts! Instead of about 25 ads you should put like maybe 5 or 6 or even give them a choice or something. Bc not everyone wants to be watching there favorite anime and then a super juicy part comes on then BOOM! An ad pops up. Not a very good thing now is it? You might get lower ratings but I still think this is a gr8 app! But there does need to be some stuff fixed but other than those things this is a totally cool app.
stevenleevan - No support?
This service has the potential to be really awesome. I tried the free trial and started watching right away and ended up keeping the subscription for premium going.
There are some annoyances such as when I try to fast forward through intros It can sometimes take 3-5 minutes to even play the show again and it usually happens multiple times.
My biggest issue though, and reason for 2 stars is that I was having an issue where my password was not working when trying to sign in on my other devices. When I tried to reset password, the link never came. I tried multiple times a day to reset and yes I checked spam and every folder but nothing. I reached out to customer service which got back to me quickly but they said that I have no account with them yet I’m being billed for premium. They escalated the issue but I never heard back and this was almost 2 weeks ago. I’ve sent another help request and haven’t heard back at all. For some reason now I’m able to sign in with my password to other devices but my premium account status is gone yet I’m still paying for the subscription. I’ve even tried unsubscribing and subscribing and issue persists. This has really become annoying and I’d love to give more stars and continue service if they could resolve my issue!
Darkfiresun - Requisit app for anime fans
I've been a Crunchyroll premium member for a few years now, so can't speak for those that are complaining about ads. Premium is ad free and the service and app has been pretty stellar.
I primarily stream from my PS4, occasionally from iPad, and PS3. The PS3 app will lock up sometimes, but I blame that more on Sony no longer supporting/updating the platform. PS4 and iPad are pretty reliable.
I recently discovered that Crunchyroll has age restriction settings that are active by default. Once you log in on the website, and change those settings, an entire new crop of shows are available to stream that I never knew Crunchyroll carried.
Crunchyroll has also gotten a lot more of the the currently airing shows that were not available on any service in the west previously. In the last week a few current shows popped up in my feed that I had been having to track down through other, less convenient means. Making me, and other people who enjoy those more niche shows very happy. so kudos to them on that. For considerably less a month than Netflix, just go premium and save yourself the ads.
Laizaaa - Disappearing Anime
I logged into my account today to finish watching the one and only, “Haikyu!!” but when i opened my watchlist, it wasn't there. I decided to search it up instead but when I got to it, it told me that there wasn't anything to watch and to try to load up the page again. Of course, when I tried to reload the page, the same thing popped up. I checked other shows to see if this happened to it too, but it didn't. The episodes on other shows popped up. I just really wanted to watch “Haikyu!!,” so I thought of the quickest way to make things work. Shut down my phone and turn it back on. When I went back to the app, it still wasn’t in my watchlist, so again, I Searched it up, and nothing was there, other than different shows. I browsed the sports section to try to find it, but nothing. It disappeared. Can someone fix this? I don't know what the problem is, weather it being my phone or the app.. I really like crunchy roll and became very comfortable with it. I don't want to switch to a different platform, but I don't know what else to do. Maybe you guys took it off your platform, but if you did i would be really disappointed.
jacobRcarroll - It's miraculous
I got premium back in March, exclusively to watch One Piece without ads. I got in before One Piece was premium only, but it's a miracle that I've gotten to episode 438 given that the app has gone through several terrible updates in the last few months. Tbh Crunchyroll PROBABLY didn't have the infrastructure, and probably weren't prepared to handle the massive influx in users from the last few months. It's hard to blame them, but if you're gaining users, then you're getting subsequent ad revenue, if you're gaining premium users, then you're getting the premium membership fee every month from those users. It make very little sense to me that the same issues, logging out, app crashes, server/connectivity issues, have been going on for so long; Maybe it's because they haven't seen ramifications for it, ie., if people just deal with it, then what's the point of fixing? Given that crunchyroll is rated the #14 app in entertainment, it should perform solidly, or more consistently than it does; doing that, at the very least, would either prevent it from moving down, or improve the apps rating. Great when it works, incredibly frustrating when it doesn't.
Seattle lover 13 - problem with ad loading times
Firstly, I love the content. This app is great. It has clean UI and tons of good shows. What is super annoying, though, is that my show will load just fine, but the frequent and long ads struggle to load. My internet has no problem streaming normal anime, but as soon as it’s time for an ad, it struggles to stream it. I suspect it is an issue with the quality of the ads being locked. Please allow the ads to come in at 720p or less. It seems that the anti Juul ad specifically is locked to come in at 1080p and takes over 5
minutes from start to finish even though the ad itself is 30 seconds or less. This is annoying because not only do I have to wait to get back to the show, I’m stuck looking at a buffering wheel for 90% of the time the show is paused. Again, I don’t mind the ads, please fix them and unlock their quality to be contingent on streaming bandwidth.
I’d be happy to change this review given that the ads load faster. For reference, I am on full bars of cellular LTE plus full bars of wifi reception and I use the app in my home nearby my router.
Saracastically - Love it but I do have just a few complaints...
Okay, so I’d like to start my review with everything I loved about the app. PROS: User-friendly mechanics and set up? Yep. Tons and tons of variety to choose from? Definitely. Free? Indeed it is! Well done and accurate subtitles! You betcha! Overall, it’s a pretty great app, but I do have some complaints that made me give it one less star. CONS: It has a LOT of ads, and I mean a LOT. I mean, you can always get premium for a monthly fee, but I want to give a review about the experience about the average user. There is also a glitch that whenever I get a skippable ad, when I try to skip it, it will continuously replay it until I watch the whole thing. My only other complaint is that it’s kind of a bother that you can’t exit out of an episode once an ad starts. SUMMARY: It’s a wonderful app filled with fantastic, popular animes and dramas. And as annoying as the constant ads are, we must not take for granted that we have access to hundreds and hundreds of episodes subbed anime’s for FREE. It’s mind boggling to me that they don’t require any fees or memberships just to watch. There are a few bugs, but I’m willing to overlook them as they aren’t that bad.
Bill Cliton is here - It’s Okay
It’s a great app. I have both Crunchyroll and Funimation, and almost always prefer Crunchyroll over Funimation. My big problem with Crunchyroll though is that with this newest update to mobile app, I have been logged out everytime I open the app. That’s not a big deal though what is though is that my Watchlist is gone and it always says that I need premium. I have premium though and am still paying for it even though I’m watching ad’s in the middle of my show. I’m very frustrated by this and have gone over to help center for help, there’s no answers for my specific problem I’m having right now though and there is no where to call for help.
If someone is reading this and is thinking of buying the premium subscription I think you should it’s worth every dime. However on that note I also would be very careful about doing it because Crunchyroll has screwed me over on this past update so just a warning. The app is a good one but not as good as people say it is.
Also for any employees at Crunchyroll reading this please help out because I’m getting very impatient with you guys right now.
chimpmunk_posiden_zelda - Yeah no I hate this app now!
I got the app just a view days ago and I really love watching anime. I mean it’s an anime app of course. I started watching a series and for the first 3 episode worked beautiful nothing was wrong. Then it came to the 4th episode I watched the beginning and then the part where the add comes up it just stopped. The screen went black and nothing was working I tried restarting the app, exiting out of the app and nothing worked. If I could I would give this app lower. I heard great things from Crunchyroll and it should work perfect but that’s with the monthly fee. Not everyone wants to pay a monthly fee just to watch anime. I understand well that’s how you make your money. I the end there is a button that makes you not sign up and I didn’t exactly want to sign up I just want to watch anime. I don’t plan of signing up either. You made it free so at least have the decency to make it work for free. Even you want make bonus packages where you sign up you get your add free for so many things you do etc. I would love if you could figure this out other wise this is a good app but no one should deal with that. The app is great don’t get me wrong it’s neat it has good anime’s and have info. On the anime. The problem I have with it, is watching it. Please change that part and the app will be such a good app! Thank you!
evohflame - Bad interface
The interface is really bad, I recommend you guys watch it on your computer and get a chrome extension for crunchyroll instead (plus you’re able to use Adblock so no more ads for the 7th time in a row)
Shows some cool anime I guess but the interface it so bad. Many examples is how when you go backwards in the video by 5 secs at a time I am unable to pause it until 5 secs later or longer or when repeatedly pressing the button to go forward every 5 sec the video buffer for way to long and even lags. Also the fact how when you swipe the video all the way at the beginning it starts at 0:01 sec for some odd reason (same thing happens when at the end of the video). Another thing is watching a video that I was halfway done. Why would you ask me if I want to start all the way from the beginning? If I want to start all the way from the beginning then I would do it myself I don’t want you to ask me about it every time I start an episode I was almost finished watching. I also hate how you can’t pick the next episode while watching a video at the same time. You also can’t change it to dub or sub while watching the video. Instead I have to go out of my way to get out of the video and specifically look for the one I want to watch which takes so long and very inconvenient for me. That’s my 2 cents.
DragonGamer_67 - Amazing, love it!
CrunchyRoll in my honest opinion is one of the best platform to watch anime on, and this is not a fact is just my opinion. Since I’m paying for subscription I don’t have a single ad to worry about, and I get to watch everything pretty well. Even the CrunchyRoll app does pretty well too, I just have a small problem with it but nothing to worry about (and is not related to ads, not random log offs, etc).
I would recommend you to use CrunchyRoll on a computer though like me if you can, since is much better. Overall, it has great anime, great quality, rarely any bugs at all, and no issue. Maybe a lot more bugs and glitches for mobile users but since I use mostly my computer for CrunchyRoll I rarely experience any of those, or none at all. Since I mainly use VRV when watching on mobile (doesn’t mean I don’t use VRV to watch on my computer, matter of fact I still use VRV more often on my computer than on my phone) that makes it a lower chance for me to run into those things. Btw, you can pay for one subscription on VRV and have both premium on VRV and CrunchyRoll.
JanessaLee - Pros & Cons
I love the app! but i don’t really like the new update. i wished i never had update it since its weird with me and it tweaks. i can’t really play the video sometimes and the i don’t mean to press on the ads. i wish i could go back to the last update since it was more comfortable with me. but overall i love the app and all the recommendations! but also do with the layout was the same. the ads won’t play for me sometimes. and mostly the ads are annoying. i like the new update i don’t really hate it, i just don’t really like it, but it’s fine. i just wish i could go back to the previous update and be able to be fine with it. it was more better for me, i’m not sure about the others. i just wish i got an option to choose which update i wanted. i really miss the old update. but i still love crunchyroll since it’s on of the best anime apps i love! i just wished that i had the last update.
edit more: ads are so sensitive. i just want the old update back. i know i’m complaining bad. but it’s just something i would like and probably some others. the layout is so crammed. i just want the old update back.. no matter how much i’m complaining this i just want the old update back. for me it’s more better. i tried reinstalling the app but it just won’t let it be the other update. i made a huge mistake updating this app.
Frozen Scar Gaming - My Thoughts.
I personally think that Crunchyroll is a great streaming service. It allows me to watch hundreds of anime although I do have some complaints. Probably does have a Lotta new were enemies and a lot of other ones they don’t really play, got a couple of the older shows that I would like to watch( Hamtaro ), you know the anime with hamsters. Despite that I still love Crunchyroll get a cigarette streaming service that allows me access to a lot of the shows that I’m not able to watch on Netflix example overload. Fortunately the free service has a lot of which tend to repeat, a lot. It’s not like Netflix though where you need a credit card it’s just if you don’t want advertisements if you have to get premium. Overall it is a fantastic streaming service and a whole lot or more reliable than others. Thank you Crunchyroll developers for making this awesome streaming service without you well some animes just wouldn’t be within my watch. Please add some of the other Aminé that’s market friend no complaints but I would like to watch my anime hamsters. :-)
Just-A-Human - Ads
So I don’t mind ads in small quantities. I wouldn’t have a problem if we got three to even four ads per episode, “per episode” being the key terms here. But that’s not the case. Instead, we have to suffer through four to six ads every eight or so minutes at their designated tick marks. To make matters worse, if for some reason the episode is not working and we have to leave and come back, clicking on the same episode results in you having to watch another six ads just to get back into it. Yes, I understand that Crunchyroll has to support themselves some way, but is this really necessary? Considering the amount of people who frequent the app and binge anime like I do, I think three ads per episode would be a more reasonable amount. Having to sit through six ads every ~eight minutes really kills the viewing experience for me, especially when I’m invested in a show. Maybe if we only had to watch four ads in one sitting at the beginning it would be more tolerable. Everything considered, it’s more convenient to get your anime on a free site like Kissanime (that sometimes doesn’t even work anyway) then sit around for the amount of ads that this app shoves down your throat.
. Grimm gears - How hard is it to load an ad?!?!
I completely understand that ads are a necessity and have absolutely 0 problem watching them. However, when you have an unskippable ad that takes up to 10 minutes to load (or longer I just refuse to wait longer then that,) that’s just rediculous. I shouldn’t have to close and reopen Crunchyroll every other time I hit a commercial break just so I don’t end up taking literally an hour to watch an episode of a show. On top of that, it’s absolutely killer that I have to take an ad break and watch all the ads that I would have watched by that point when I’m resuming an episode. A) I already watched ads to get that far, do you really need to make me watch a dozen ads just to finish the last 5 minutes of an episode? And (more importantly) B) if I have to close my app because your 30second ads take longer to load then the 30 minute episode, why would you make me watch more ads, basically raising my chance of getting stuck again, just to finish watching the episode? It’s just ridiculous that a 30 second ad would take 10 minutes to load, and it has nothing to do with my connection since the show I’m watching doesn’t need time to buffer or anything, it streams perfectly.
KawaiiPhantom - “Error” bug thing
I REALLY love Crunchyroll and I think it’s the best way to watch anime. of course, you can get crunchyroll premium and even start 2 weeks free! I really love how almost ALL of the anime are free! They even have a queue which is very convenient. I would really recommend Crunchyroll, but there is just one problem.
When I’m watching crunchyroll, It always says there is an error, “bad gateway” and I don’t know what this means. The worst part is that it happened whenever I’m in the middle of watching the interesting part of and anime and I have to keep checking my connection and praying that it would work. Even when my connection is working and I check my software, it won’t work. I even ha fro delete it and reinstall it, but it still wouldn’t work. Of course, I LOVE Crunchyroll. But this “error” thing really ticks me off and it doesn’t give me any information so I don’t know how to fix it. Please Crunchyroll, if you are reading this, please fix this, it would be greatly appreciated. If there is nothing you can do about it, can you at least give me some help or information on how to fix it?
Thank you very much.
Sir Boxington williams - Wait for episodes after they come out
So a thing I’ve noticed is that when a new episode comes out, you have to wait a solid week. An entire week to watch a single episode that is riddled with tons of ads, the ads I’m fine with but it’s the time that they have made for this and even if you try to use the free trial they charge you right after seven days. It’s not really a “free trial” if your going to need credit card info now I’m aware this means you could create alternative accounts and get unlimited trial access so there’s that. But you can’t see the IP of where an email address came? And if more than one account was created from that IP. I mean sure I guess they need their money to let anime on their streaming platform, but the fact that you MUST wait a week is just ridiculous. Not only do I want to watch that episode but I can’t it sits there and taunts me with that gold crown. Another thing I want to address is the whole youtuber promotion free trial is the same exact thing as the free trial, no credit card no trial. Even though this whole rant of mine won’t change a corporate giant worth well over hundreds of millions of dollars, even the smallest response is all that matters.
This game is ruined - Keep up the great services
tbh crunchyroll isn’t even that bad. Kids are just mad about the ads they get from when they watch free but in reality you can get no ads from just paying 8 bucks a month. It really isn’t a lot. I can understand if your parents or you can’t afford it but most of the time when you see a toxic comment about crunchyrolls ads and the monthly charges it’s just kids that can’t get it for their reasons. I personally am 12 and have the premium from just asking my mom. Most 10-15 year olds are just use to watching anime on illegal websites like kissanime and don’t want to pay to or can’t watch anime on any sites like crunchyroll and funimation. You guys aren’t doing anything wrong and keep up the great service 👍.
P.S if you guys want to satisfy your customers even more I’d recommend forgetting about the weird drama tv shows and focus on getting more dubbed anime for the more popular anime that don’t have dubs yet. I don’t really mind watching subbed anime as I prefer it over dubbed but this would boost you guys upwards
LILLY THORNBURG - Eh..
I think the app is great and all, but there are some tweaks.
The first one is the pause button. Half the time I can’t pause the video to read something because it’s a loading circle-thing. So, I miss the moment, cause me to have to press the 10 sec. back or forward button, but then an ad-attack happens, which brings me to my next complaint. I can’t really call this a anime show app for Japan’s best hits because of all the ads. It seems like it’s a free ad show. Now, I know you can buy the premium, which gets you no ads, but, do we look like trillionares? (I mean come on, we bought this app to watch FREE shows, jeez!) Also, why doesn’t the ad have a pause option? You may need to do something in your household or your parents called you to do stuff, and are we supposed to bring your device with you while it’s playing a whole bunch of ads? And if you leave it, the show will play without you knowing, and if you go to far back cause you missed to much, ATTACK ON AD TITAN! If they had these shows on satellite it would probably have WAY less commercials/ad breaks. Either way, it’s great and I’m really enjoying Miss Kobayashi's dragon maid. Thanks, please fix though....
Blackeell - About a year
I’ve had Crunchyroll for about a year. And honestly it’s not all that great. One of the anime’s I LOVE is Tokyo ghoul and I couldn’t find it here, maybe expand the selection a bit. Also there are WAY too many ads. Like 3-5 an episode would be alright. But like 20 an episode is just ridiculous. And even then most of the time it’s just the same ad replaying over and over! Currently for me the Uber Eats ad gets replayed about 3 times before switching to the McDonalds ad about $1 drinks. I understand you have to make money some how since it’s a free app. You’ve got premium and ads so why not just cut back on the ads? I know many people who have Crunchyroll only actually use it for the selection then go on a website and watch the anime ad free. But we wouldn’t have to if we just had a few less ads! Or even better just make the ads skip able! Besides the issue with Tokyo Ghoul not being on there and ads everything else seems alright to me so far. Haven’t had any other issues. I mean getting spammed with ads when you get in the anime, after the intro, the climax, right before the outro, and then the end of the episode is really the main issue.
Rawerisnt - The Ads are broken
Ok so I’ve used this app for YEARS on my iPad and my playstation, it has never really worked well on my iPad but I always managed and on my PlayStation it’s by far the best though the ads jump and skip and it’s horrible horrible background noise. I’ve watched an entire anime on my computer with no problem using crunchy roll, the ads worked well and didn’t freeze or anything.
Now I’m gonna get to the point here, I’ve recently gotten Crunchyroll for my phone and let me just start by saying It has taken me three days just to watch 1 and 1 1/2 episode of Mob Psycho because the ads take forever to load and or don’t even work in the first place. I watched through an entire ad and the video started like normal and two seconds later another ad comes out of nowhere. I work 6 12s and don’t have time to site for an hour when I get home just to watch 15 ads on one episode of an anime when I have to get up at 3 in the morning, it’s miserable and frustrating when I need 30 min to destress and have to distress from the darn ads...this was my ted talk...thanks for reading if you even did.
Tokyolover57 - Ads and glitches.
Ok so I’ll start with saying that Crunchyroll is a great app! You get almost all the shows you could want for free. The selections is amazing and the Crunchyroll originals are pretty good too. But the adds are just to much. I understand you need to make money to keep the app going and adds (outside of premium) is the way to do that, but the amount of adds I get in one 20 minute or so episode is outrageous. I got at least 5-10 ads in one ad break per episode. Spread that out into the three different ad-breaks and it gets annoying. For my next point I have the worst problems with Crunchyroll loading. No it’s not my internet because when I was subscribed with a premium membership I didn’t get those problems. First of all if I leave and episode halfway through and come back later it just won’t load without restarting the whole episode. And even when I restart the episode it still keeps buffering. All I’m saying is don’t make it perfect (because you still want people to buy a premium membership I get that) but make it bearable or this will help you lose a lot of users.
lovelylady10 - Watch out for this app😡
Sure the app is good. It has a bunch of anime shows and any others you can think of! You name the anime there gonna have it. What I HATE about this app is that whenever I leave the app, like close it and come back, it says I’m logged out!!😡 I didn’t log out of the account and I didn’t delete it at all! As for example right before I was writing this review I was watching an anime on the app called “Kuroko’s Basketball” and the anime stopped playing. So I closed the app and when I came back it said I didn’t have an account and that I was logged out! This kept happening almost every single day. When I logged back into my account it said the account I typed in didn’t exist!! I knew it did cause I used it all the time and on this app as well. I’m starting to thing the app is taking all my personal information at this point because it keeps logging me out randomly and when I FINALLY log back in it has a bunch of anime shows I didn’t even watch on that account or even heard of!! I’m writing this review to warn everyone out there about this app. I will keep the app but if it happens 1 more time I’m deleting it and telling all my friend and everyone I know that has the app to delete it😤
666666ismyname - Can’t get into my account
I’m just writing this review because I can’t get into my account. Well, I guess I’ll start from the beginning. One day when I opened Crunchyroll, I got automatically signed out. Which makes no sense because I have been using Crunchyroll for over a year now, and this has never happened. Because of this, I forgot my password but at that moment, that didn’t really matter to me, I just thought “okay, this is fine, I can just reset my password” I tried doing that but then got a message saying “there was an error resetting your password” at this point I was seriously confused. But there is one other thing I could do. I tried resetting my password with a different email and then got a notification saying “link sent, try your email for instructions” so I went to my email and waited for 5 minutes...10 minutes...30 minutes... a whole hour later, and still no email. Please someone help, I don’t want to have to make a new account and find all the stuff I had bookmarked. Which believe me, it was A LOT. And I wonder, was the update the cause of this?
Dr.MangoPhD - Good but can always be better
I’ve used crunchyroll to support the official release of anime for years now. I prefer it far over any other anime streaming service so far. It just feels better to me. However their app is the least optimized thing and continues to be in a lot of cases. It was recently updated, which is nice, visually it looks better. But now I have an issue where it will log me out if the app closes, or sometimes in the middle of casting to the TV. It’s really inconvenient because before I never had to sign in after the initial sign in. It never once logged me out or lost my info. Another thing that has always bothered me is that crunchyroll doesn’t give you a preference on your account to choose between dubbed and subbed. So sometimes you see updates for an anime you really loved and it turns out it’s just a lousy dub update. They added a filter, but it doesn’t really work all that well. So please make a way for us to set a preference on the account. Personally I would prefer not to see subs at all. That being said, the app is passable and does what you need it to do, but not without the odd hiccup or annoying issue.
MissMaeJean - New update is TERRIBLE
The new mobile update is full of issues, so I’ll make a list. Some shows are no longer available to watch on mobile?? I tried looking up Hunter x Hunter (because it wasn’t appearing on my list) and saw that I couldn’t find it through search at all either. So I guess I’m not finishing that show anymore! In fact, over half of the anime’s I’ve added to my list are no longer available on mobile. Fruits basket, one piece, 5cm per second, bleach, it’s all gone. Thats messed up, WHY?! I can’t watch most of my shows on mobile anymore which completely defeats the purpose of this app. Also, It doesn’t take me to my watchlist immediately anymore, it takes me to a “home” with “top picks for you!” Options. No, I want to see my watchlist on mobile first, because I want to watch my show, if I want to search for a new one I’ll let you know. And to top off this awful update, the filter for your watchlist don’t even work! When I ask to sort By “date watched” and “newest” it doesn’t give me the anime’s I’ve watched most recently first. Instead it shows an anime I watched 3 months ago, and then an anime I watched just last week is all the way at the bottom of my list. It makes no sense. There is no order to it.
How to I uninstall this last update?!
@tonie - Terrible !!!
Absolutely terrible. I only purchased this app to support anime. The app worked great on my Apple TV last year and on my IPhone. But over the last few months, the app has been absolutely terrible.. I’ve probably seen more commercials then I’ve seen anime. There’s constant buffering and freezing. Once a show starts don’t you dare touch a button, you’ll be looking at another few minutes of buffering, plus commercials.. Their slow servers totally kill any momentum the show your watching has built. So I upgraded to premium to see if it would help. Well it didn’t ! Same problems. I’m so disappointed. I said o well , it’s only 6.99 and I’m doing a good thing by supporting the anime community. But the problems are so consistent, that they can’t be ignored. The service their providing consistently ruins the positive feelings that i have each and every week, when I go to it to watch a new episode of my favorite show. Enough is enough. I’ve given Crunchyroll to many chances. I’d rather go back to streaming my favorite show illegally. At least it won’t be interrupted by commercials or buffering, and it will not cost me anything. Crunchyroll has potential but for right now it’s not for me.. I’ll check back in the future to see if they’ve gotten their crap in order.

RaishinMikazuchi - Opening and Ending
I have been using Crunchyroll app for almost 5 years and I certainly love it; its a great app to watch anime and it allows me to widen my interest on other shows like live action (especially Mischievous Kiss, it was wonderful romance series.) And, when it comes to openings and endings, most people who watch anime like to listen to it. And, with those two-three minutes just listening to those OP/ED from different anime can be sometimes enjoying and exciting. However, some openings and endings can be somewhat bad or worse as it can force us (not literally forcing us) or in some occasions, the OPs/EDs wont let us feel the vibe through opening and endings or in another words, the lack of excitement on some anime’s opening/ending can bring people’s interest on anime to fall apart. Therefore, i would like to suggest a skip intro/ending button for every anime in order for us to skip the anime opening or ending whether we feel like it or not. And, with this button, there will be more likely a lot of people would never drop their interest on a anime. Thank you for your time and I appreciate if you will consider my request. Once again, Thank you.
Blah Bleh Blah Bleh - Logging out issues
This app works very well and provides many great anime to watch when you get premium. Premium is good and allows you get access to episodes as early as possible. It also allows for HD too but the one thing about this app that stops me from giving it a 5 star is the logging out bug. I’ve been getting logged out pretty much every time I use it for about a month. I’ve tried to redownload, check for updates I may be missing, leaving the app idle and also closing it straight away. After some googling it seems that this used to be similar to an old problem and I’ve also seen that you have updated it several times to fix the bug but it still happens. It is very annoying to log in everytime when I want to get access to content I paid for. I’ve tried to reach out for help from you guys too and it seems like you’re still working on it. I used to be a frequent user of this app but because of this I rarely use it now. Please fix it soon because it’s getting tiring to log in all the time.
rahul 5890 - To many Ads
I’ve been using Crunchyroll for like a year just in case if they update it so it doesn’t show as many ads but nothings happened so I’ll write this review. In every episode they show 10 ADS 10!!!!! I get it that they can’t stream all of this for free but at least lower the ads to like 2 or 3 and the other thing is when I’m watching something the ads are all about the same thing!!! How is that good for the people that make the ads. The ads that people make are supposed to make the viewer want to buy the thing or do whatever,making them watch the same ad over and over is going to make them not want to buy it or whatever! So Crunchyroll you really aren’t doing a good job for the ads so these are my to options. If you still want to show the same ads make it 2 or 3 per video. If you want to keep the 10 ads make them different ads so there might be something I want to buy! If I keep on seeing ads like how your doing it now I’ll just use Adblock I don’t like using it because I want the application to get some money you know and if you tell me to just get premium then you should get yourself checked because it’s $10 a month and when you think of it like that it’s not a lot but when you thing of it $120 A YEAR that’s a lot. That’s all I have to say
RougeNite - Awesome but needs few features. Offline download!!!
This platform is awesome for someone like me as I heavily rely on my mobile data to watch anime. However, when I am reaching my data limit, I’m not able to watch as freely, naturally. What I think would be a solution to this, and definitely an awesome feature in which I think many people would agree on as well, is to be able to download a series to watch offline. At least for those that pay for the service, like other streaming platforms such as Netflix. If this gets introduced, I’d honestly have no other reason to go to another source to watch my anime! Crunchyroll does it for me. At least it almost does 😁
One more thing to add. Would it be possible to add like a double tap function in the video player to jump like 5 or 10 seconds. That would make it a bit more convenient too than having to tap just for the UI to come up and then tap the forward button. Thanks 😋😋😋
Ben2029 - Amazing and easy
This App has many great qualities and easy to use. There are other platforms out there and they all have the same Ads placements throughout the videos, while this platform dose strain is viewer ship when not a premium member, with strenuous ads that do distract you from watching the anime a little to much. But theses are all released once purchasing premium which if you are an avid lover of anime you don’t mind spending a little money on your enjoyment. This app is really rather good in its design and looks make it easy and enjoyable to use.
(Just a through in the design, while functioning great there are some features that I would to see transferred from the website, like the release calendar and being able to change the order of items in your queue. Just little things that would make it a better.)
But over all this app is really great and reliable I have used it for a number of years and it works wonderfully.
Fercjskwwoxmvf - Don’t use this app
If anyone is reading this review, don’t download this app it’s pretty bad. Every time I watch a episode, about 5 ads pop up back to back so you can watch around only 3 minutes of the episode then it happens again with ads appearing 5 times again and if you just leave the app for about a second it will happen again. If somehow Crunchyroll is reading this (which is very unlikely) put one ad at the beginning of the episode. Also this app was purposely design with old software that makes the website slow, glitchy and overall bad so you have to pay for premium, which has features no one asked for in the first place or features that should be there without the need of paying such as skipping intros, subs or even dubs to a certain extent. This is a bad app and go on another streaming service that offers more or even go on an illegal streaming site that.
(Update: I tried to give the app a second chance since it’s only been a couple of years and i see no improvements in quality of the app and a new record has been placed for now 15 adds with 5 being the exact same add. Also I did edit the review)
snas undertail - Amazing, but...
I love Crunchyroll, it’s introduced me to a variety of brilliant anime, including Darling in the FranXX, Blend S and Boku No Hero Academia. It’s also free, which seems too good to be true, but here’s the catch: there are so many ads! Every few minutes, depending on the length of the episode, a series of ads will pop up. Now, it would be fine if it was only maybe one ad per break, but there are always at least 5! I don’t know about you, but when you’re on a cliffhanger, really excited for what will come of the protagonist, hanging on the edge of your seat, I don’t think you would like it if you were then met with 7, 30 second long unskippable ads for Crunchyroll’s streaming service, would you? My only request is you remove some ads, so there are only maybe five ads per episode. I know it seems unrealistic, but if Crunchyroll is reading this right now, then please, just take my advice. It will make us happier. Thank you for your time.
mainzy12345 - New Update Has Ruined It
They updated and rebuilt the entire design of the website, it makes it much more archaic to use and makes it harder to find the shows you actually want to watch, instead it’s more concerned with trying to show as many show covers to you as possible, it’s a lot like Netflix now which is a negative. It use to be simple, easy, and efficient, now it’s messy and harder to use. But I could get over that, what I can’t forgive however is the change to the formatting of shows and subtitles. Subtitles are now much bigger, the black bars along the top and bottom of the screen are also much bigger, this makes the subtitles harder to read as they mostly sit outside of the show instead of over the top of it, the timing is also wrong now. With most subtitles showing up a fraction of a second or sometimes an entire second after someone has started talking and it’s very noticeable, it drives me up the wall. Stick to the PC version and don’t use this app untill they fix it.
SmolPotato🙃🥔 - Why I’ve given this app 4 stars Uwu
I love this app soooo much! It’s got so many anime’s that I’ve been longing to watch and it’s made me so happy that I can finally watch Boku no Hero Acadamia 💖💖💖💖
There’s just one thing... it annoys me to see so many adds while watching 😫. I get that Crunchyroll is advertising their streaming anime’s but too much is too much, am I right!
Like, When I was up to the part where Deku finally learns to control his quirk (One for All) but then BAM!!! There’s an add break —> not only is there one during the break (which I would love Uwu) but around 3-5!!! Who’s got time for paying premium when you actually have to pay actual money, watch 5 flippin adds when we don’t have premium when they could’ve watched more of the series of their desired anime? Whose with me my fellow potatoes?? Sorry that most of mah review is negative 😅 but I really love everything apart from how many adds there are 😅😅😇😇🥰🥰🥰
saraaaaaaaaaaaaaa - Wish I could love it
For an app I’m paying a monthly fee for I’d expect it to stream a little better. It’s a rarity when it works, which isn’t really good enough. It’s super glitchy, out of time with audio, the video quality drops randomly, sometimes the episodes don’t load at all. The episodes/shows I have queued disappear or jumps to a future episode I’m not up to yet. It’s really frustrating. The positive is that it really does have a vast range of anime, a lot you can’t find through other steaming sites, inevitably keeping me using the app. If you’re happy to pay for a dodgy service if it still has an endless amount of anime then it’s a perfect investment.
Let’s just say that if another streaming site offered the same variety of anime, I’d jump over & try it in a heartbeat for the possibility to find something better then this. Sorry crunchy roll, but it’d be really worth it improving your streaming service so we can get through one episode without any hassle ✌🏼
Okd3 - English Dub! No English Sub !
Hey , I love this app because it supports iOS 9!!! But I'm the person who doesn't really enjoy reading with animated stuff , whenever I go watch Boku No Hero Academia (my fav anime) I always have to read subs and its sooooooo annoying! Please make the animes English dubbed. Also I don't like that when a new episode is released you have to wait 2 days until you watch it , I hate that premium thing , btw can you please stop showing the most disturbing parts of the anime when an ad comes on , i remember when I saw an Attack On Titan ad and the ad showed a person getting eaten by a Titan and that was disturbing !,and stop putting so many ads can you just add 2 ads in each episode please! Good side now ! Well done for being the most popular anime viewer !!🎉🎉🎉🎉 well keep up the good work and please English dub!
Thanks for reading !
-Uraraka (that's my nickname) ✌🏻️
anime_dog - Good but there’s a bug with the ads
It’s an amazing platform but there is a slight bug with the ads
Basically what is does is when you watch an ad there’s two different bugs that can happen, one is when I’m watching an ad, as soon as it ended another one would start and over and over and over. The only way to beat this bug is by spending tones of time on a different app and then come back and hope it’s fixed, which takes you out of the experience.
The second bug is that it just freezes at the end of the ad and when you tap it it does nothing, I tried everything I could to figure a way to beat the bug, but to no success, so when there’s nothing you can do.
Great app but if this bug effects you than it cripples the free experience. Anyway I have premium which I would recommend.
Lachstar798 - It's awesome, but if your a free user, not so much
I love this app, though I have a few thoughts, firstly I get why people hate it if you are not on premium, there are so many ads it just gets to bad to watch, which is why this makes people want to buy premium, I think you should. If you are a kid, ask your parents. Every adult loves anime (at least most do) plus I think this company strives in making a reason why you should get premium. There are lots of different apps out there that have the choice of premium but all it does is remove the ads, when you can literally just turn off your wifi and you won't have any ads, all you need to do after is turn it back on. I think that whoever gets this app needs to buy premium because otherwise you just get sick and tired of the ads and just wanna enjoy the show.
EmilyKittiCornTheOneAndOnly - Good app but ads
Please don’t give me ads. I understand all of the anime’s are free to watch and all but the ads are very irritating and they come in groups of 3 ads each time they show up, and I watch around 9 ads every episode and the ads aren’t very short either. It’s also the same ads over and over again of the same product which I have already decided if I want or don’t want and I won’t purchase something for a second time. The app itself is great so I would recommend this if you would want to watch a show on it or look for some new animes, but please do something about the ads. There is like so many ads it almost makes the episode impossible to watch without being able to process what’s going on having ads pop in every minute or so.
Blindman1800 - A fantastic service.... For other countries
Crunchy roll is a good platform that lacks many aspects that rise modern platforms higher. For example crunchy role will not recommend any new series for you to watch, meaning you have to search through the platform for something you'll like, this is something that every other video broadcasting site and app enjoys.
Also due to licensing a lot of animes simply can't be watched in Australia. Countless times I have been recommended a show only to find it's not available in Australia. It's an absolute shame because I want to recommend this service but it simply doesn't provide what you want from a service like this. Yes it broadcasts all the latest and greatest shows, even so true anime fans want to watch something else. Older series that are unavailable in Australia.
Also as a quick note navigating the site and the app is a messy affair and finding things can be hard because the searching system is too precise and doesn't key similar words, only the precise words you put down.
The broadcasting is bog standard, getting videos as soon as Japan is alright.
Is it a good service?
Is it worth the money?
Not really, other broadcasting sites are cheaper and do it better, some are even free.
If I do get it what should I watch?
Jojo's Bizarre adventure
DopeeDope - It’s fine...I guess
Okay so firstly this app is literally the world of ads unless u get premium, but getting premium only gains you no ads. And secondly, sometimes when the ads are supposed to pop up but doesn’t? And it makes my screen turn black, it’s not my wifi or my phone but this has been happening to me a lot and It doesn’t load when it’s on the black screen, even when I try to reset the app and the phone. But maybe that’s just me. Thirdly, there’s not enough anime!! Lastly, the searching thing doesn’t work very well. I recommend using their website on ur laptop or wateva, just don’t use Crunchyroll on the phone. Other than that everything’s fine, premium is pretty cheap and it probably gets rid of half of my problems here 🙃
Serious_Review_Sapien - Black screen failing to load ads
I have not been able to watch a full episode from beginning to end for a couple of weeks now. The advertisements themselves are a nuisance - originally I felt that since I wasn’t paying from premium, fair enough - but no other free streaming website/app uses anywhere near as many ads, nor has any issues with loading such as the one I am encountering with you on a regular basis.
Usually, midway through an episode where ads have been inserted, while loading the next ad it will glitch and the screen goes dark. The only way out of this is to close the app and restart it - meaning I have to start to episode all over again, rewatch all those ads, and more often than not encounter the exact same problem slightly later on!
Please update and fix! I have been a loyal fan for years, now growing ever-annoyed and impatient by the gross over-usage of ads and regular glitches.
memey panda boi - Good but there are problems
I love this app but there are a few bugs and problems that I would like fixed. One, too many ads back to back, I would be watching an anime and all of a sudden five ads pop up back to back, it makes it worser that it’s the same ad over and over. Two, I would like an age rating in the information for the anime. Since I’m a child I could watch something that could be rated R and not know about it. Finally number three, it won’t let me watch miss kobayashi’s dragon maid! What will happen is I would press start watching and a little pop up will show up saying error and I have two options. I could ether press ok or retry but when I press retry it pops up again! Please fix these!
Somewhat fan - Still updating
So far I’ve used this for a good few months this update they put out in September has changed how you view it, but it’s not bad, although my videos refuse to load, in other words it’s not even trying to load because the wifi icon isn’t loading anything so that means it just sits there with a black screen and the play button. I do hope this could be fixed, not to mention my subtitles have been turning off randomly and I cannot turn them back on for some odd reason it’s fixed if I go out then back in but that’s very annoying if you’re trying to binge watch on a rainy day, my final opinion is it can be a very pleasant experience but it needs some work still Note: Take down the amount of adds you spam on every episode
koiym - love the app, not the ads
crunchyroll is definitely one of my favourite anime streaming sites by far and boasts a large variety of anime. if your using a desktop, the website is perfect, however, if ur using the app you get multiple ads. it’s not very user friendly and the homepage looks daggy. i remember last year, i stopped using crunchyroll for that very reason but came back to it this year to see if it changed. no major improvements. they reduced the ads but during an ad break you have to wait 1-4 seconds for the ad to actually show up, before that, the screen goes black (sort of). it’s troublesome to say the least but when u get used to it, crunchyroll is great. premium is cheaper than other services with more to offer. overall, use crunchyroll on a browser rather than the app. in terms of improvement, crunchyroll should add downloading episodes a premium use as well as improve the transition between ads and anime. if possible, they should change the watching layout on tv, it’s hard to use and you can’t skip episodes while on another one.
tl;dr good app, bad ads and great website
-sei - To the creators
I find that it’s a pretty good app with lots of content but... I’m having some trouble with getting the audio of some episodes. This happens especially after ads are played. It would be nice if this could be fixed. Also, as many of the people here think, I also agree that there are too many ads per episode. I know you need to advertise to gain a profit, but I believe that you have a big enough audience for you to decrease the amount of ads you play while still getting an income. Honestly 15 ads for a 24 minute episode is too many.
I hope these two things can be fixed in the future,
Thank you for your time,

ZamorarKOD - Is it just me or dose it laggy
Hi I just downloaded the app and I’m pretty young so I can’t get the subscription. The app is very laggy I have to wait forever just for it to play and then adds come along then I have to wait all over again. I don’t know what to do but I hope you can fix it please. I watched something for one minute because I couldn’t find it anywhere else and then an add came, in still waiting for it to play again. Please fix this bug. Reduce the adds or no one would want to bye the subscription. I know I wouldn’t to tend way to much effort on the subscription people and not enough on those who don’t. I severely dislike the app so try to change my mind. I see you as greedy people who only want the money and change it when a problem happens in the subscription department so you can keep and gain more subscriptions please change my mind
Gamer GURL 5 - It good...... but
Crunchyroll is a great app that lets me find new and awesome anime’s to watch. However I was a bit disappointed to find they didn’t have Tokyo ghoul, or the anime Death note. Some of the episodes are missing too, like with Blue Exorcist. They only have 12 episodes, even though there is over 20. I would like that if Crunchyroll was going to show us an awesome anime, that they would give us the whole season. Another down side is the amount of ads! I would have to say crunchyroll is still my go to if other anime apps don’t have the whole season. I definitely recommend this app, these flaws are very little and the experience is still enjoyable. But please give me Death note 📝
dhsusvdixhsvsz - Doesn’t even work
I’ve been trying for ages thinking that the app might take time to adjust and get used to my phone but no. I can go onto the sight and click an episode but all it does is give me the loading signal and then the black screen. I had to wait for 10 mins and still nothing. I was really looking forward to this app as some other websites don’t have the latest episodes even anime lab doesn’t have it. I restarted and re downloaded this app several times but it still doesn’t work. I just wanna watch dem episodes man. This is really sad I’ve been recommended this app by my friends and it doesn’t even show a sec of an episode
Jõrmangunder - too many ads
This has a lot more anime that most other apps i watch but then the ads just make this app terrible and i’m not buying premium even though i do speak english and not japanese i cope amazingly with subtitles i don’t need premium for that and then there’s ads right in front of the last like ten seconds of the show and i have to watch since i might miss something everyone’s been complaining about ads and you should listen to users for once they dint care about the new things your putting in just fix the ads the freeness of the app make people buy it and then there’s the adpocalypse
🅢🅔🅘 - Too many ads
I only downloaded crunchy roll because the app I mainly use doesn't have the anime I want to watch. Crunchy roll isn't that bad, but there's a major difference when it comes to ads. The app I mainly use will show only one ad at a time which would probably last a minute or so, but crunchy roll shows around 5 short ads at once. It just makes it feel like the ads go for longer and it's quite irritating when you think you're about to watch the anime, but oh look, here's another ad.
People with premium aren't complaining and would just say to buy premium. But some people don't want to spend money on this stuff. I'm not surprised if crunchy roll is losing viewership, once I've finished watching the anime I want to watch then I'm deleting this app and going back to animelab.
TheeQtip - A couple of problems
So, I’ve been using Crunchyroll for a bit now, and it’s great, but there are some problems such as logging in/out problem, it randomly kicks me out of my account so I have to log back in every time, but that is a minor issue. But the thing that bugs me the most is, that every so often the anime episode restarts with no subtitles, and as a person who doesn’t know much Japanese find it annoying while I’m in the middle of an episode and then it restarts without subtitles, and I can’t even turn the subtitles back on again! So Crunchyroll please come out with a turn subtitles on feature as it’s annoyingly frustrating.
Gol D Glacy - Need Skip Intro button if possible!!
Tbh crunchyroll is like the best app to watch animes(if you’re a premium member). All the cool animes are there and it’s always fun to spend time wondering off to anime world!! Everything is super awesome but I feel like it would be so much better if they put up a “skip intro” button in the opening part of the anime(like in Netflix). It would save up so much time and it would be easy for us to just hit that button and continue the show instead of having to literally do it until I have finally skipped it(sooooo annoyinggg)! Apart from that, this website or app has lived up to my expectations and I’m thankful for that😌🙂
BlueXGaming - What is going on?!
I get why a lot of people like crunchyroll, I mean it’s basically a platform where you can watch some of your favourite anime’s for free. But there are two main issues that I’m sure I myself and many users of this app have, there are too many ads. We would have to watch about six ads in just one episode and I can’t even tell if I’m watching anime or if I’m watching ads. And it keeps logging me out of my account! It gets pretty annoying and frustrating having to log in my account two to three times a day knowing that I’ll have to log back in after a few minutes or even the next day! I honestly don’t get why these issues are occurring to me and many users of this app. Creators of crunchyroll please fix this.
Skul_led - please add some changes
I love CrunchyRoll for its wide variation of anime series but the ADS are hard to handle and they go straight to that anime when I just want to watch “MY HERO ACADAMIA” and talking about that please add a setting where you can English dub it.
Another thing is that you have to hold the place where your at and move it so you skip the intro,recap and outro, if you could, can you add button saying skip recap,intro,outro and start next episode, another thing is, when I first the first season of “MY HERO ACADAMIA” it took me some time to find the arrow which directs you to the other seasons,could you make the arrow bigger, thanks for your help, best anime app ever!
Did you leave the stove on - The ads the app are trash
The overly excessive ads cause a pain in the backside every time watching atleast fifty unskippable ads, not only so after enduring the agonising assault of ads the app usually causes a further harassment of glitches and crashes forcing you to view the ever so endearing onslaught of repetitive advertisements. Even so after the torture you are again torn apart the mediocre video quality and constant lagging and crashing for a brief moment before the advertisement haunts you once again. Not even only this majority of decent episodes are blocked for the less than fortunate whom cannot afford the luxury of “premium videos” and even then the app servers are occasionally disabled making them about as uselfull as joe without police training. Crunchyroll truly is a disgrace to humanity. In conclusion kiss anime remains supreme.
Elevas - Pretty good
The app and the service are pretty good, though jumping through an episode takes a LOT of loading time if it forgets where you were up to... and the app logs you out A LOT without prompting you directly: so, I’ve paid $60 a year for a while now and I regularly see ads because I’ll boot up the app and start streaming before I notice that I’ve been logged out... at which point logging in still requires you to cancel the stream, find the episode and scrub through it. It’s just a lot of BS to deal with when all I’m really paying for is the absence of ads.
WryLeopard - Too many ads
At the start of the video there are 4-5 ads if you wait 10 seconds to skip, but the last ad you have to watch in full, during a video there are 3 more ad breaks and they are all the same with 4-5 ads, if you think watching one all the way through will let you continue watching the video, you’re wrong, you have to watch through 3 whole ads sometimes. So let’s say it’s 4 ads each ad break, there are 4 ad breaks in each 20+ min video, that’s 16 ads in one video. That’s too many ads and it’s disgusting
DLB_84 - Content OK, but Ads are annoying
Quality of content (the very little I have watched) is ok.
The advertisements are repetitive and loud, but at least in most cases, can be skipped after 5 seconds and are inserted at natural breaks in the content. It is frustrating however to be made to watch 2 minutes of ads, allowed to watch the opening credits, then another 3 minutes of ads. There is also no way to return to the menu while ads are playing, which makes accidental selection of content frustrating. Also, (I assume) if the ad server can’t be found, the ad won’t play and neither will the content.
But, it’s otherwise free for subbed content.
Goodbyeadspend - Poor user experience and embarrassing
As a new user it’s been a complete mess, I haven’t seen software in such a horrific state like this and still being available to consumers, this needs to be fixed. Via either the free version of the app or the premium trial you’ll find that you’re attacked by 5 ads in a row, which you wouldn’t usually mind given the value exchange of free content. But then the content black screens so you’ll need to constantly restart the app and then maybe on the 5th try the content will play but not before you need to be force fed all these ads. Learn to place frequency caps on your ads! Also your premium trial version doesn’t work on the app and I still get ads. As an advertiser with large video spends I will be ensuring to blacklist because this is a shambles.
Trish Trinh - Too many ads
This add is great but there are many flaws. One is that if you don’t have premium then it is just frustrating because it has at least 12 ads every episode. It is very annoying when it suddenly stops and plays 4 ads every few minutes. I thought that you would only get one ad but it turned out that it stops and play 4-5.
The second flaw is that it saves where you left the episode at the wrong time. I was watching when I had to go somewhere so I turned it off and when I pressed resume it resumed at least 20 mins before the part that I was actually up to. I had to watch that again. The third flaw is that if I finished watching the 4 ads and turned it off I would have to watch all the ads again.
ImFREAKINSANIC - Platform needs more updating and premium member ships
Okay so i have been using crunchyroll for 3 to 4 years and it is not the worst plat form in the world otherwise i would have stopped using it. But the video player needs a better look, buffering times on occasions, and pre-loading(reffering to buffers). And the premium member to really be put to more use the only thing it really gives you is ad free and the ability to watch an episode aweek before other users which you could simply do on a torrent site with an ad blocker. Downloadable episode for premium members would be really amazing other providers are doing it and works perfectly fine
Axel overlord - Whyyyyyy
I love crunchyroll it has so many anime’s all good quality but the one BIG problem is the ads like I stared watching demon slayer and not even thirty seconds after the first ad break there was another one that contained five more ads within it I am a little annoyed at the fact that people without premium have so mane ads like if it were just like two small ads at the start then two more before the outro then it would be fine but currently I am watching more ads then my desired amount I do not have the money to spend on subscriptions so PLEASE cut me some slack but other than the ad problem I love crunchyroll but it’s really testing my nerves
_JetD - Loading Troubles
This is the first time I’ve used a streaming app in this field and I have enjoyed the experience until today. For some reason the app will not load, save to watch list once the app eventually loaded, and if watching a show it will not play. I’m unsure why this is the case. Hopefully it is fixed soon because I’d rather continue with one business than begin with another. If you’re deciding, please do not let my negative experience sway you to avoid the app: experience for yourself and investigate. Maybe it’s my account or phone/tablet. When working, I would have given it 4/5. It could reach 5/5 with UI changes.
shiromaikku - Super slow to unusable app on iPad
My review is a reflection on the iPad app, not on Crunchyroll (though, annoyingly, they don’t have an app for Samsung TV’s, but that’s another issue that I hope they do address in the future).
To be clear, I can stream several other platforms in 4K on my computer and TV. It’s not my network and the app is fully updated. But through half of the day, it takes ages for an episode to load. After 12:00am (when I usually want to use it), it just will not load an episode at all. No error messages, just will not load an episode.
Crunchyroll as a provider is outstanding. I love it. There’s always something new, something I’m interested in. But this app needs some work.
URGIFBJKDUIGW - Usually works fine, but currently won’t load
This is overall a great app, although it does have a lot of ads but then again this is free and is giving access to loads of content so I can’t really complain. The apps been working fine until now when I can’t watch anything because it says it’s not connected. It doesn’t have to do with my personal wifi as I can access other streaming services, but for some reason it doesn’t work on the Crunchyroll app. Though it does work fine on the tv or internet it just doesn’t work on the app probably because of its new update so please fix this.
Collage Sharer - Worse since update
This app has always been great and I’ve never had a problem with it. After the update however, it’s kind of gone downhill. The new look is all over the place and makes it hard to see what you actually want to see. I’ve also had so many times when a video wouldn’t play for either no reason or because it couldn’t connect to the server, a problem that is entirely or mostly due to the app and not my actual connection to the internet.
When it does work however, it’s great. I just wish I hadn’t updated it.
KKKK10 - Great! But needs some work
I just wanna say that Crunchyroll is great, and has amazing anime’s in it to watch like Your Lie in April and My Hero Academia. On the bright side it has many anime’s to browse from but in another hand it is not entirely free. I wanted to watch this specific anime then it said I needed to go Premium to watch it, and I’d have to pay. Also, it has logging out problems. Whenever I get out of the app and come in, it is very rare for me to see that my account is still logged in. It would tell me to log in again when all I did was leave the app.
AL DANTDM - A few minor setbacks
I mainly use Animelab and have just downloaded Crunchyroll not knowing what to expect and looking for foodwars season 3 which i found without problems. The issue with it is that there were 10 ads in one episode!! When compared to Anime lab which only has 4 it’s just so annoying when you’re trying to watch your anime and you get 10 ads. Another issue I came across is not being able to create an account. When i entered my email and then a password it said login is incorrect. I hope crunchyroll will look into this is as well as shortening the amount of ads one gets in an episode.
Ravi nakarani - Can u add something? Or take away e.g ADDS
There are sooooooooo many adds and that is why most of my frinds do not like this app i like it because you get such a big trail and that gives me time to see if i can buy it and watch my favoirite movies maybe i will buy this app in future if i still like anime that is. Can u also add more shows because there is a lot out there like mew mew power or mermaid melody i know they might be wierd but many kids watch it and they might like it.
I REALLY LIKE THIS APP AND I WANT YOU TO CONSIDER THE FACT THAT I TOOK MY TIME TO WRITE THIS AND WATCH ALL THE ADDS :)
Chickensfolife - Too Many Advertisements
I’m currently using your application whilst writing this and have just received my SEVENTH ad, the first three I could skip in five seconds which means 15 seconds of my time was taken up then I got three more which were 6 so there goes 18 secs and even more data and wifi being used and now this last ad THE SEVENTH AD which is also 6 which means 39 seconds I could spend watching what I wish too is being spent on things I have no interest or care in, other applications like AnimeLab get by fine with only 1-2 advertisements per episode so in comparison to them your applications and it’s egregious selling out is subpar and just overall a nuisance, I highly recommend toning it down to AT LEAST 3 ads maximum per episode
WW musix - Too many ads
I really love to watch anime on Crunchyroll but there are a ridiculous amount of ads. I end up having to watch 5 ads before I get to watch the actual anime and they end up taking a minute to load then once I watch the intro to the anime I end up having to watch another 5 ads that go on for longer than 30seconds then I get to watch half of the anime until I have to watch another 5 ads it’s annoying and the only way to get rid of them is to go premium. It would be helpful if you could at least reduce the number of ads so I can get a chance to watch what I want to watch.
Lozerzy - Just buy premium
Crunchy roll offers one of the largest library of anime out there. It's super user friendly, and has HD (with premium) :). It's only downfall is that ads are annoying, but buying premium solves that, and it's only about $7 a month. So I would recommend that you get premium even if ads worked correctly. Also, crunchy roll properly pays Japanese companies that are creating these, which is better that some other services. All in all; just buy premium.
KiwiiBoy3 - Video Quality is the only positive.
Everything about this app is poorly designed and full of bugs. It took me 2 days to watch one episode of my favourite animé, as the video kept blacking out and/or crashing, and whenever I tried to start it up again, I’d be bombarded with the same 6 advertisements for other shows over and over before it crashed repeatedly within minutes. It doesn’t save your searches, the scrolling system is clunky, and my god did I mention they flood you with ads unlike any other streaming service? If you barely want to watch your favourite shows and like the feeling of stress mixed with frustration, Crunchyroll is for you. Otherwise, just use their direct competitor, AnimeLab.
Cikicat - New update has tons of issues
I love Crunchyroll a lot, and use it all the time on my tablet. However the new update has tons of issues. First, the app logs you out automatically every couple of hours if you don't use it. Secondly, when playing videos the subtitles and/or audio are lagged, and sometimes you can only get a couple minutes into an episode before the screen freezes and goes white with the audio still playing. The only way to fix the freeze is close the app completely and then you have to log in again. The new layout might look nice or whatever, but now it just has so many annoying bugs.

hdjssjsjdjd - Good/eh
The app is good and has a very good variety of anime’s. I just don’t like the amount of adds just because you don’t pay.
TJ H W - Commercials freezing the app
Some commercials play fine, others the screen stays black after trying to load, doesn’t play anything and doesn’t allow us to do anything but close the app and try again. It’s 4 times now I keep trying to get passed the same commercial pause.
Quinners1223 - No name
My friend raged cuz he thought that 10$ a month is a lot. I do agree that 10$ a little over priced but it’s not that bad.
hfhfhfhhglyhd bb afw d bn - Unbelievable amount of ads
I literally can’t watch anything because when the episode starts I get an ad and then after that ad ends another one ad Starts playing before I even get to one second of the episode and it’s just endless. This app should go burn in hell where it belongs
Mina styles - Get premium, duh
For y’all complaining about ads and not being able to watch shows...buy premium then. This is a service like Netflix.
If you don’t wish to support then watch anime on a shady website then. Shut up.
Popowich - To people complaining about ads:
Buy the premium. It’s not expensive.
jaque22131 - Honestly terrible
I still get ads with premium and they make things unnecessarily hard this is the worst app ever and as soon as my subscription ends I'm deleting this app.I will never hate an app as much as I hate this one. Honestly a huge waste of time
Trader.Joe - New update = bad
Now it’s terribly glitchy for me, it won’t play most of the time and it’s harder to find the anime I want to watch, it’s confusing. When there’s an ad it goes straight to a website. I don’t know why 👎
Sshhhhggcsfgsgd - Wth Crunchyroll
My brother said this app actually worked now I get it you trying to preview other show and are trying to get us to buy premium but seriously why have them be repetitive adds I literally got to minutes into my show and now I can’t watch it wanna know why because of the REPETITIVE ADDS LIKE I can’t even enjoy it so what makes you think your gonna get good reviews the only GOOD REVIEWS YOUR GETTING ARE FROM YOURSELF and people who actually have the money to pay for stupid premium. It’s honestly unfair to those who are actually trying to enjoy the app.
buchinyam - Addddddsssss
Good app but tons of ads
K Ann Reneki Lee - Too many ads
I know they got to make profit, but this is absolutely absurd. The ads they put are at least a minute or two in length and pop up almost everytime I exit the app and open it again. To make matters worst, they instil approximately 4 ads. It sometimes bugs and restarts the ad and doubles the time I have to wait. I’m impatient and I believe they don’t have to self promote their own content cause they don’t earn money from it and wastes my time on useless ads that repeat themselves.
s j j z n s - Error
Constantly unable to load my watch list!
frist ape🔥🔥 - Bruh
Why do u need Premium for literally every anime
ThinkOfANane - It won’t even open
Every time I open the app all I get is a error message and then I’ll be thrown out of the app. I’ve tried three times now to fix it, I’ve also deleted and redownloaded the app.
qtklbgjkik&&69?;😖 - Ewww
Pourquoi il faut un abonnement 🤬
Ihatejakepaul - Black screen
Every time I stumble across an ad the screen just turns black and I’ve tried a lot of things but it keeps happening. Please fix this
xomahum - Why
Why are there bare ads for me
boredanimedfan - Black screen and videos stopped working.
I’m furious. What’s the point of a streaming app if it won’t work?
lordnellz666 - Always crashing
It sucks when u pay for an app that doesn’t work...
JDSmileZ - Horrible
Can’t even re-sub. Keep asking me to do trial and giving me errors saying trial can be done twice...can’t there just be a re-sub button😡😡😡
sticklanda man - The ads
I read the bible twice and my episode was barely finished because the ads made it longer
kallava573 - WAY too many ads
I can barely watch the show because of so many ads so I just gave up :/
xxmugiwara boy - App doesn’t work
Crashes, won’t load, sometimes only loads a black screen while audio plays, continuously logs you out, not worth premium
AkiAkito - New animes
There is only popular animes, add other animes
yoAdsRtrash101 - Ads
Why do I get ads after subscribing???
Johnny353699 - Poor
App never has connection even after being fully up to date.
butterflyg_irl - Best app ever!
The ads are so annoying, they pop up every second and then the screen turns black. I tried to of the device and froze. Very interesting.
ChubbyBunny587580 - Meh
I like the layout and all the anime I was looking for was there but every time i go to watch it it would say only premium can watch so unless you have money for premium I wouldn’t recommend getting it
HDALIN - Latest update
The latest update has plenty of issues between the redesign (to look like Netflix or something?), some random sidebar during videos (which serves no purpose), and the inability to close a video without that sidebar being there (i.e. In "full screen mode"). This is so infuriating to have to fight with homogenizing updates that only make accessibility harder.
Edit: good to know the update didn't fix the logout bug (but made it aggressively worse...)
Edit: also since the update subtitles have been out of sync. Makes some things completely unwatchable.
whocaresatthispiunt - Problems
I have been trying get a hold on crunchroll support for weeks to get an account. The creat an account function does not work. Keeps telling me my e-mail is wrong. How can my e-mail be wrong when I use it on daily bases. The support team is very slow at responding either.
$_PS - EVERYTHING CAUST MONEY
Omg litterly EVERY single show is premium
LIKE WHAT ALL THE POPULAR MAINSTREAM SHONEN THAT I WANT TO WATCH IS PAY TO WATH IM BETTER PF USING ILLEGAL WEBSITES
soup is yummy - This app is great!
This app is so good but I finished all the seasons of my hero academia please make season 5 quick!
I Love Women - Not the best player at all on iPad
The app feel clunky, sub often out of sync, I pay subscription and there is still ads... must be a bug, I’m not sure and to take it off, you have to click on the ad, really not sure if it’s even legal in Canada. The menu is good and well layout but the player is really slow to react. There should be an update for multiple user like other service provider like Netflix or amazon prime, for other members of the family... The content have a good variety and is in good quality. Really sad that the app so half bake... to not say bad a word.
ray7653 - 3 Stars
The variety of things to watch is pretty average and the app is fine. A thing i really dislike is that I have to log in every time; fix it please.
Jctgwfa - Don’t bother
The app never works. Cancelling my subscription to Crunchyroll because the app is that bad. Super disappointed.
Sigma176 - Bad update
Despite the design change improving the look, the app consistently crashes, logs me out of my account, forgets where I was , or simply wont even play an episode. The update is regressive and needs to be fixed.
jas1019 - Too many bugs
Ever since the update it’s been running slower. It takes so long to load episodes, freezes every now and then, sometimes it says I’m not connected to wifi? Connecting it to my tv is hopeless I will spend 1 hour watching a 25 min episode from how much I have to wait for it to load every minute. This is the only app I have connection / loading issues with. Some anime’s don’t even want to play sometimes due to an “error”. I miss the old crunchy roll it was simple and worked perfectly fine I had no issues with it. IT ALSO STILL DOESN'T HAVE A SKIP INTRO OPTION!
Yannyboi1 - Only good things is that it has a lot of anime
Every time I go to watch something im logged out every 5 minutes there is an ad and it take ten years to load the episode! FIX YOU APPPP
woo 1234 - Scam
Don’t ever frickin install this app, it’s a scam. I lost a reasonable about for the premium subscription but I still get to much those annoying ADS. Also if it continues to deduct from your account as soon as you finished purchasing. It’s a scam .please don’t ever install it .
hakgdkahdjgfkagakdh - No point
There is no point in getting this app, most the time spent is either watching an ad or a black screen right after the ad.
lady+the tramp - Sucks
I can’t watch a show because it needs premium it’s so dumb I just wanna watch a show
Big phat paulie - Had to ruin a good thing
New version of app doesn’t work nearly as well as the old one
JustAWebtoonLover - new theme!
I am loving the new interface with dark mode! Everything seems more comfortable and sleek and I think this will really upgrade my anime watching experience!! Thank u crunchyroll
carzy! - Very good just one thing
All I want for this is the English Dub for any show that has one otherwise Great
Alex130425 - New update sucks
Seriously really disappointed in the new update ... cant even watch an episode without it bugging ... cant preview scroll anymore ... the new look is cool but man fix the app :(
Sircasper - iOS issues
iOS app stopped working completely and will not load
Spushy - Revert the Update
New update is garbage, revert the update the old version felt much cozier and not more like using a website. The ads are even worse and honestly will just find somewhere else to watch anime.
crunchyrol_premiumuser - New Update is not that great
New interface looks clean, the dark theme is great and finding anime is easy but..... it won’t even let me play the anime i want to watch :(
Terrible web - New update = TERRIBLE
I can’t even watch anime on crunchy roll anymore.. I paid for membership and yet I still get ads. The ads goes straight through the website! Bad, don’t recommend buying membership or even installing crunchy roll.
V JUNGKOOK SHIPPER - There’s still ads!!!!
I paid for premium but still didn’t get any benefits there are still ads!! Like literally 5 mins ads per ep! So disappointed!!

Rhonda n TX - Great app!
This app is actually great! I was pretty worried because I saw quite a few reviews saying it was a bad app, but honestly it’s not at all! Yes, it does have ads when it’s not premium, but not too many. 3 times an episode I get about six ads that are usually only 5 seconds. I only use it when I’m at home, so I don’t know about how it is outside of that. I always have been looking for a good source of anime and a way to support the artists. There is so much anime on here! I honestly thought the subtitles would annoy me and i would fall asleep while trying to read them without English voice actors, but I often forget about it and binge watch shows! When I first got it, I was nervous it would start acting up like the reviews said, but mine didn’t at all! I find this a very useful app, especially if you LOVE anime like me. When I first got this app, I was overwhelmed with how much anime there is on here! I’ve never had so many options! I recommend you get premium, but all in all, it’s a great app either way in my opinion.
PunkRockPeyton - Love it, but some problems (well many)
I love this app for watching anime due to its vast collection and genres, but there are many problems that make me not want to even use it, or tempted to delete it and get another app for this use. For starters I’m sure you’ve heard this, but there are to much adds. WAY to much. I understand this app is free to many and that’s why adds are used but we don’t need ten of them to make that happen. Not only is there mass amounts of adds, but they pop up about three times per episode and it’s very annoying because it just won’t stop with the adds. The worst problem I’ve been having though is after the long add breaks, when it ends and the episode is back to where it left of before the adds, the sound doesn’t work, or the sub titles and animation is to slow for the sound. Because of this I would have to exit out of it, go back in the episode and resume, but whet happens when I try to do that? A truck load of adds, and then again the episode glitches and has one of those problems again after all the add watching. This happens way to often and it’s highly frustrating.
LoonLynx - Opinions are different, but here is mine!
Honestly, I love Crunchyroll! 1. It has A LOT of anime..I mean there are soo many. Although, it doesn’t have a really popular anime series called “Tokyo Ghoul” which surprises me. But, there are a lot more popular ones one there and more! 2. Dubbed vs subtitled! Crunchyroll is a subtitled anime app. I don’t think any anime on there is dubbed. Funimation is the only dubbed anime app I know of. (There are probably more, I am aware) BUT, I don’t care if it’s subtitled! I personally love and prefer subtitle anime. I do like dubbed because I have seen dubbed anime before. So yes, Crunchyroll is a subtitled anime app! :) 3. The ads. I know this is everyone’s concern in these reviews I have seen. I honestly don’t care about ads. It’s fine, at least you get to watch the anime! And, if you aren’t premium...it’s ok! I’m not premium, I don’t really care to wait to watch the newest episodes XD( ik..I’m random.) LAST THING: Overall, I really like this app! Adds and premium don’t bother me. So, yes this is an amazing anime app in my eyes. Sorry this is so long! 🤗👍
693873hidbsindhs - The New Update
A few days ago, I downloaded the newest update, and I understand glitches are going to happen, after all you did give the app a whole new design. Although, every time I get to the ad break in the middle of an episode, it sends me right back to the beginning of the episode and doesn’t have subtitles. Sometimes I open an episode and it doesn’t play the subtitles. I always go back to settings to see if it was accidentally shut off, but it never is shut off. There are other times where I get to an ad break and the ad’s do not load at all, then glitch out and skip back to the episode, without subtitles. Really the biggest issue I have had is the subtitles disappearing and that the episode restarts itself as soon as an ad break is over. I like that you decreased the amount of ads, in each break it never exceeds four ads, where as before it used to be 3-5 or more ads. I am sure buying the subscription is worth it, once I can afford it I will definitely buy it! As long as you have a little patience or have a little game to play while the ads are running, it really isn’t so bad!
Jeheiehdbdhsudh - Decent app, many issues
Crunchyroll undoubtedly exceeds the competition in terms of the range of anime one could watch. Sadly, with or without premium, issues occur on both sides. From what I’ve read, those with premium still have bugs/glitches which is completely unprofessional on Crunchyroll’s half; considering premium members paid for high quality service and deserve to have what they paid for. Whereas those without premium may have to watch a few ads. But the amount of ads on Crunchyroll begs for consumers to find a “better service”. And though they may not be paying directly, watching ads helps sponsors for Crunchyroll progress further in popularity; therefore, sponsors can then pay more to Crunchyroll so they can have longer ads which increases popularity and it goes on, and on. Therefore, if Crunchyroll desires to compete with the competition, instead of being concerned on how fast they can get money in there wallet. They should start putting their fan bases concerns into account.
Nachitoboy2008 - Too many ads and glitches
Look im not the type of person to write reviews but whatever.
So I have been looking i around to see what apps I could watch anime on and I found crunchyroll, and I started to look for animes and i tapped on an episode and not even a minute into it I already get at least 2 ads like its getting really annoying and i have been getting a-lot of ads like i can barely watch an episode without 10 ads on each episode.
And another problem is that whenever i get an ad there is always another one but it hasn’t shown so when i think its over i just go back to try watching my show but then it just takes me to some random website. And after an ad is done now the episode is glitched and i keep pressing the unpause button but then it starts playing for two seconds and it pauses again, and I restart the app and it is still glitched. And now its just in an infinite loop where it unpauses the pauses. And sometimes its because there is an ad but it doesn’t show so when i try to watch it takes me to a website. So PLEASE fix the too many ads and the unpause and pause glitch.
Thatsanjosekidd - Still keeps logging me out and wont even load my watchlist!
I’ve had the Crunchyroll app on my iPhone for years and since I’ve had it I’ve also been paying the premium service it offers, all in all its a great app for watching anime although they don't have everything I want to watch, there selection is still good on that note since they've updated the app recently it still to this day keeps logging me out even though they’ve presumably addressed that issue, its not that big of a deal since it doesn't happen every time i start the app though it does get annoying after multiple times in a row and now even when i have to log back in, my watchlist won’t even bother to load even after multiple attempts at the moment! I really do love this app and i hope these issues get fixed correctly because iknow they just recently updated it and there always going to have some issues no matter what, but if it still keeps having the same issues I’m going to have to cancel my membership and take my money elsewhere, any information or anything from you guys would be much appreciated.
Kwesi ch - Tons of Glitches
I’ve used Crunchyroll for years and the website is fantastic. As a mobile platform, there really needs to be some changes made from the dev team, especially for iOS. The application constantly crashes, you always have to log back in every time you close out of the app, the servers will not connect which means your watchlist won’t load and episodes will just cut out in the middle of a viewing. If you are lucky enough to go through one episode, then the “play next” button does not work or is frozen, and you cannot open details for the show you are watching. There is also a major issue with syncing across multiple devices. This only happens on everything but the actual website. If I am going to be paying as a premium member, I hope these issues resolve soon other wise there’s no point in paying for these basic features that a lot of free websites have. The anime’s are great and I’ve always considered crunchyroll a good platform for it, but please fix your technical difficulties with your mobile platform. Or hire me to fix it for you. Or at least give communication on what’s wrong and what you are doing to fix it. Or give us a timeline of your pipeline to get it fixed. Please. Thank you
reddrafon - Something wrong with the ad
Ok so I’m just watching the anime and the an ad play so I’m like aright but then when the ad plays nothing pops up so I exit out of it and go back then it works. Now when I try that it doesn’t work it like “here an ad” then it give me no ad so I try everything to give me the ad to continue the show but nothing works. So I’m just waiting there seeing a blank screen just waiting for the ad. I had waited SO LONG for the ad to pop up (it was 4 hour) I was determined to get the ad to pop up. I just gave up on waiting for this ad to pop up because I know that it’s not going to so I’m like “welp” I’m doing something else.
Then after a day or so I went back to see if it was happening again it went back to normal the after one episode it like “ ohh you wanna watch the second episode nope”. Then my screen turned blank so I reset the app then try watching other show but it didn’t work the same thing happen. So can you please look into it. If you do then thank you.
Totwind93 - Lack Luster Operating System
The app is outdated. It pales in comparison to other streaming services. It seems to only want to get by with the bare minimum in terms of presentation. I could provide examples, but literally every other “Major” streaming service, (and yes congratulations I consider this a major streaming service) has a more fluid and convenient operating system. The funds that are spent on this service are not being allocated properly in my opinion. The focus is more on finding new ways to make profit than the user experience. Basically drawing people in, but not making concrete efforts to keep them. I feel I’m not asking for too much considering it definitely seems their is growth within the company in order to fund some of the endeavors I see advertised on Crunchyroll’s part. I am trying not to compare too hard to the other services in the sense of 1:1, but please introduce a new format/operating system to the app. It’s a pain that me and my girlfriend can’t que the same show at different episodes just as an example. I hope this feedback is considered constructive.
Dragonalynx - Super confusing!!
I don’t know how to do anything!! I tried to log in on my iPhone and it sent me an email asking if it was me trying to log in and I said yes but then it just took me to the Crunchyroll website and there was a little pop up that said that “the device could not be trusted”?? What does that even mean?? What am I supposed to do about that?! And There’s like three different ways of buying premium and I don’t know which one I’m supposed to choose! The way I did it at first worked but then when I closed the app it logged me out and wouldn’t log me back in because apparently something was wrong with my credentials even though there weren’t any typos or anything, so I made a new account and deleted my subscription but when I tried to get one on my new account it didn’t work so I was paying for it but not getting any of the perks. So I tried going to the help website and it kinda gave me the answer but they were super vague, like it was because I had too many accounts or something. But I can’t figure out a way to delete them!! Please help me and stop being so vague because everything’s just confusing and I don’t know what I’m supposed to do!! I just want to watch anime in JAPANESE with GOOD SUBTITLES and NO ADS!!! 😭😭
jaquan2times - Ads
I don’t mind the ads since it is free to watch the show, but the ads do not load. I’ll spend minutes looking at black screen with a circle, i’ll have to keep switching between wifi and data to get the ads to work even though both my internet and data are fine, but otherwise the ads won’t load. Sometimes for ads i’ll have to swipe down and hit play on my control center, or i’ll have to click a random spot on the screen to play the and it always take me to the browser and opens a site to buy something. The app would be great if the ads were fixed and would actually just load and play on their own like any other streaming service.
Update: I just updated the app and now it seems as if the ads are playing on their own without long black screens. I hope they continue to play on their own because the long loading hand constantly getting taken to my safari was annoying. Guess i’ll raise my rating for now.
LitleAwesome - Large Ad problem
The anime and manga and everything is very high quality I will say, but then it comes to ad breaks. It’s over the top, yes ads are needed to support the app, but a lot of the time when I start up a episode or a movie of anime, there will be 5 ads in a row and in movies, the ads are way to much, ad breaks are played every 5-10 minutes which I definitely not a lot of time before having to wait 3-5 minutes to continue watching, and a lot of other apps do the same but I still say crunchy roll is the best app for anime if you are ok with watching ads, maybe play a little mobile game on another device or something if you have but if you have very little patience I wouldn’t say this is good for you, personally I enjoy this app but ads do tend to get to me, like I tried to watch the konosuba movie and I got so bored so quickly because of the ads coming in and out and I didn’t have that much time and I wanted to finish it. All I’m saying is that Crunchyroll is a great app, but just not for the people with not a lot of patience
oshel7 - Non-Premium and Non-WiFi Users
Let me start off by saying Crunchyroll is an AMAZING streaming service. The streaming is high quality enjoyable and an overall great experience. But unfortunately if your out on the road, and you have to resort to cellular data or you just don’t have WiFi at home then this app may not be the best option, but I recommend keeping it until you can find a source of WiFi. Basically when there is no WiFi connection, the anime you are trying to watch will for sure be buffering for long periods of time, throughout the entire anime episodes/film. Not to mention if you are not a premium member, I mean it’s not the worst, but at the same time it can be VERY annoying because the apps are just flat out annoying, I mean who wouldn’t agree on that and not to mention HD anime is amazing because well, HD but there is just one thing about HD it can buffer a little bit but nothing seriously bad. Other than that I love Crunchyroll and won’t resort to any other streaming service for anime unless Crunchyroll doesn’t have it.
PUBG player pro - Makes me sad
I’ve been using this app now for a bit and I don’t pay for premium, so I just deal with all the ads. I would’ve given five stars if it wasn’t for the depressing ads, like the ones about teens dying in car accidents, I have a problem with these, normally I’m fine with crazy amounts of ads, I don’t really care that much, but when all the ads about death come on it ruins the mood, and my mood too. Like I said I’m really fine with 20 ads every video, I normally just skip them, but the ones that I’m talking about the first time I see them I watch all the way through, I feel like it’s disrespecting those who have passed, I must sound crazy but it really does feel that way. If you could minimize these ads it would make me (and probably a lot of other people) happy. Other than that I love the huge selection, add one punch man, and the features all work great on my iPad mini 4 it’s all high quality and free too, the ads that I talked about are my only complaint.👍
Brony swag - Good App (if you can afford the monthly subscription)
The Crunchyroll app seriously is my favorite streaming app for anime, above Netflix and some competitors notorious for extremely long load times (and excessive data use). I find Crunchyroll uses less data when I stream my shows and doesn’t drain my battery as excessively. The integration of the queue and the updated episodes works well for me and the shows I watch as they air in Japan. My only complaint lies in the ads. While I am now a paid subscriber thanks to the continuous use of the app and chip-ins from my family members who also utilize it, I was an unpaid subscriber for a while, and man do these ads kill. Several will play at a time, lagging the video and appearing in sometimes strange blocks of the video. Not only this, the skip button often will just pause the ad, and take several taps to pass. While this is easily fixable simply by upgrading, I hope that Crunchyroll would improve the ad quality, and targetedness for my homies on the unpaid subscription service. Still, great app!
Kula be - Help!!
You see when I first started using Crunchyroll I was just a regular person and I didn’t want to spend money on it if I wasn’t gonna be on the app all the time but as time went I noticed that I was on the app a lot so then I needed to upgrade to premium and so I did after a while later I couldn’t pay the bill for it every month so I took a time off of Crunchyroll even tho I didn’t delete the app I still had it on my phone it’s just that I wasn’t paying money for it I was just using with ads. But now I want go back to premium and so I I upgraded to premium again and now I can’t seem to go back to my premium and every time I try to purchase it says you already have purchased premium and whenever I try to stream an anime it doesn’t let me and it tells me to upgrade but when I try to upgrade it tells me I already upgraded so now I’m just lost and confused and when I checked my apple subscriptions it says next bill is due on aug 24 so plz help me
Menma-san - Excellent app!
A lot of people complain about the ads, but don’t realize that the membership solves all of the problems they are talking about. For the huge difference in viewing experience with and without ads, membership is worth it.
Anyways, on to rating the app itself, I gave it a 4 because it does everything it is supposed to. Amazing quality videos, search bar actually works unlike many apps, 10 sec play forward and playback feature along with the other basic features for videos are all great, and the platform is simple and perfect for video watching smoothly. The only glitch I have found is that sometimes, for some anime, every episode is not shown due to some coding error, but you can still end up watching it if you go to previous episode or history. The only thing that would make this app perfect would be allowing a comment section like Twitch, and the review and rate feature. But I can wait for these if implementing them now is going to ruin the smoothness of the current app.
RykerK7 - Nice app but one crucial crutch
I love this app and this service, yes there are a lot of ads but the price for premium is not that steep. My issue is that I’ve found if you try to start a show or watch an episode too far from the start of the season or series the episode will not load at all (Example: Trying to start watching a show from episode 26 rather then episode 1 or 2), deleting the app or resetting it will not solve this issue either. The only resolution is to go to the start of your show (Episode 1) and press the next episode button until you arrive at your desired episode (Which is horrifying for shows like One Piece which I believe has up to 900 episodes if not more). This method is basically impossible for non premium members however. Due to the amount of ads you will receive at the beginning of each episode you wish to watch, skipping through 20 - 30 episodes takes much longer then desired. This is the only issue I have found with this app, I love it quite a lot and will continue to use it on my computer which seems to not have this issue.
Your Average - This is AMAZING
Well hello there, this is my review and my honest opinion about Crunchyroll
This app is amazing if your into anime. It has every anime that is upcoming or already up there in the charts. Sure it has ads and some episodes of the best anime’s are premium. But if these people try so hard to get it from whatever website they get it from, do u not think they deserve no money at all for giving us access to THE BEST SOURCE OF LIFE (anime obviously) If you are not an anime watcher, I still recommend to see, because maybe there is that one anime( mostly dragon ball and Naruto) that hit the sweet spot. The more you watch anime, the more you want to watch it, and again THE ADS AND THE PREMIUM are their ONLY source of getting money. If you don’t want any of the ads or want to watch EVERY episode of every anime, then buy the $7.00 thing that is a much better deal than Netflix gives if you go to Netflix specifically just for anime.
(I think I wrote way too much...)
Dover luver - Good but needs improvements.
I really like this streaming service. I really like how you don’t need Premium so you can watch all the episodes if you’re favorite anime. But how good this service sounds, it still needs improvements. First off, I know that you want to advertise other shows that are on your app and other apps that are made from you but I think you need to tone down the amount of adds that you give to us during an episode. Sometimes it happens during the most exciting or most dramatic scene of the episode. I would like it if there was about two- three adds at the beginning of the episode instead of many separated from each other during an episode. Second, I would really like it if you can add dubbed versions of the anime you have for us. I’m started to get tired to read subtitles for my hero academia,boruto,and dragon ball super. Much appreciated if you you can do these things to make you’re app even better. Thank you for reading this review and hopefully you’ll take the time to make these improvements.
My5thTimeComplaing - Subscription broken
I give it a 4 star, it would be 5 but my subscription wont work, i tried getting info at the help tab in the app but nothing is helping. It says on the app “go premium” and me being confused because i had already paid for it, clicked it. When i pressed it, it said i had already paid for it and it said when it expires and how to cancel, i was confused because if i already had it why did it show that. When i clicked an anime that i was watching it said i couldn’t watch it because it was only for premium users, but it even said i had it. So i checked that app store for and update or billing problem but everything was normal, no update needed no billing problem the subscription was still on and i had already gotten charged, so i reset my phone, it still didnt work, i logged out then back in, it didnt work, i deleted the app, it didnt work. At this point im just going to try and wait it out, but please help me i dont know what to do im pretty sure i already tried everything.
Emmabus Ted Anutt - Literally doesn’t function
I’m sorry, to do this to you crunchyroll. I’ve been watching anime for as long as I can remember using this site, but currently the app is literally not functioning at all. Currently, I’m going through my old anime list and watching slow burners like MY love STORY!! I’m currently on episode 23, 2 away from finishing and I’m unable to even load the video. I can click on it, pause, play, skip or rewind 10 seconds...but it’s just a black screen and the video doesn’t even play. After the app got a new look, the only thing I can see online about the app is how poorly it works. Just look at all the complaints on Downdetector of Crunchyroll. Don’t get me wrong, I like the new look better than the old, but if you’re going to trade off the better looks for functionality, I suggest you take your money elsewhere. I swear it was working fine too long ago too, but I just renewed my subscription recently and then poof. It doesn’t work anymore. I’m not even sure if they’re aware of this problem either. I check twitter and there’s nothing about maintenance or anything. So yea, I’m stuck using safari to access the desktop version. Fix the app please, I like it more.
Auddy Da Flowey - Great App!!!
Hello, my name is Autumn. I’m a 13 year old otaku and let me just say this app is great! I use a free version of this app and contrary to popular beliefs, the ads aren’t that bad! If you use Crunchyroll through your PlayStation you only have to watch 3-5 ads per ad break. If you use it on your phone there’s a bit more per ad break. Also there’s only about 3-4 ad breaks per episode. There’s also a wide variety of shows on her! Crunchyroll has lots of different genres! Crunchyroll also has the shows up to date. If you have a premium account you can watch a show the day it comes out! If you don’t have premium you just have to wait one week before you can watch that episode. Crunchyroll mostly contains sub animes, but they do have some dub if that’s more your style. My only complaint is that the first season of Diabolik Lovers won’t show up yet the second one will. Overall it’s great app, especially if you like anime or want to get into anime!
TennesseeTweety - Ads are Broken and Out of Control on Free Version
Before I became a premium member three years ago, I streamed for free and could deal with the ads and the service was great. I recently cancelled my membership to divert funds to another streaming site carrying a series I really want to watch thinking, “I can tolerate a few ads for the few series that I be watching on Crunchyroll...” Sadly the free service is worst than I ever remember it being. I finally got fed up when on returning to an anime episode after a commercial break the audio dropped out. I closed the stream and resumed the episode, sat through two commercial breaks totaling about 8 ads, one of them repeated 3 times, and when the episode finally resumed, still no audio 😑. This is not the first time this has happened.
It’s a good thing I’ve experienced the premium service because I wouldn’t be inclined to pay Crunchyroll for premium service based on such a dismal first impression.
Also, I normally would report such technical problems via the help section of the app but since Crunchyroll has decided to disable it, I decided to air my grievances via app review since as a paid member I was prompted to write a review many times.
Mxomega - Auto pause
Just got it today because I wanted to watch an anime and so far it hasn’t disappointing me up until when I downloaded the off-line option and for some reason it keeps on pausing for me and playing it for me and I’m not touching the screen whatsoever and it’s kind of bothering because sometimes I won’t be able to play it because it just be stuck on pause even if I keep on clicking it. Please help me.
I’ve been trying to find a way to get help from the actual Crunchyroll but I haven’t been able to find it and looking at the reviews someone mentioned the Vrv and it instantly started playing it. While I went back on my Crunchyroll account they still showed the black screen which I couldn’t watch anything. I just bought the premium yesterday and it was working up until late night when it said something went wrong and there’s a problem. So by the end of this week if it doesn’t clear up then I’m gonna return this membership because I really wanted to watch my show but I can’t so I’m looking towards the Vrv now since I can’t watch anything because of the black screen.
JaMeS bArReTt Is BoSs - My feedback
Hello there. I’m just here to say that this app is amazing. I love watching the anime on it but the ads won’t stop coming after every 2 minutes. Then it goes to the point to where I’m not even able to watch episode but am only allowed to watch the Ads. I don’t mind watching the ads every once in a while but not after the episode of an anime just starts. I do like this app a lot but if I wasn’t getting so many ads at once there would’ve been 5 stars. And honestly I’m getting mad at the fact that there are so many ads to where I can’t watch much of anything. Even after the ad is done there’s just more and more playing the second the other ad ends. I just wanna watch the anime at least with just 3 ads. I’m only on episode 2 of an interesting anime all because of the ads. I would’ve at least gotten halfway through with it if there weren’t so many ads. Well overall, please just make it to where there are only 3 ads each episode or 1 each episode. That’s I have to say until something gets fixed. But either way thanks for making this app so great. But please remove ALOT of the ads. Thanks your time and keep working hard on great apps like this!
Mate milo - Get me to watch more!!
Instead of only have your category list in alphabetical order, can there also be a selection to have the order based on popularity. It would would really help me pick(quickly) a new anime to watch, for someone who is not incredibly versed in anime titles to know which are good one. For example if I am feeling like watching more thrillers, I can look at at the category list and pick one of the popular one, being that they are popular means they are also really good. Another thing, it would be phenomenal if you had a suggestion list of anime to watch, based on the current anime you may be looking at. For example, if I absolutely love everything about Hunter x Hunter or Demon slayer or Fate/stay night, it would drive me to bring up their info on the app and if there are suggestions of similar quality shows, I would not hesitate to watch. So in all, 2 good ways to have people roll into other shows to watch regardless of them being older or current season shows :)
drag race killer - Pros and cons
Let’s start off with cons, I’ve been getting three to five ads in each mid roll and they get pretty repetitive i would love if you guys got it down to one ad per mid roll and it gets even more annoying after the ad repeats the same message over and over again and really you can’t find animes like gun gale online i looked everywhere and searched for it. Nothing appears and i know that if you annoy people with ads they will subscribe to your premium service and it’s really a hard bargain if you are getting paid minimum wage after rent and tax and responsibilities hope you guys can do something about that and the pros are there is a wide selection of anime to watch but most don’t appeal to me like naruto and s.a.o. But i need to watch more of them and i think you can improve the app if you get the adds to one/mid roll and if the anime in the ads actually exist because where ever i look I don’t find 2 out of 3 ads
WoodNoGood - Some bug issues
I am a premium member. When using crunchyroll on my phone (iphone xr) I experience a ton of bugs such as, my queue being empty, episodes not loading, and most of all doesn’t even connect, even with a strong wifi connection, I end up not being able to watch anything at all. Sometimes I end up moving onto my xbox one s to watch anime if it’s not working on my phone, but I still run into bug issues, when first opening the app on the xbox I’m not even signed in anymore from the previous time I was on, and when I go to sign in it bugs out and signs me in automatically after I start typing my email, then when clicking on any episode to watch, the buffering orange circle spins endlessly, I have to quickly press “b” to back out of the episode then “a” again within 1-2 seconds to trick the app into loading the episode. It has been like this for months and I have been waiting to see if crunchyroll would update and fix these issues, I am getting really tired of it and may end up canceling my subscription.
Special_blend05 - Why fix something that isn’t broken
The old version was perfect just the way it was. UI was bigger, bolder and it just worked. When watching, I could pause and saw only what I needed. Pause/ play button, an actual VOLUME slider. And the next episode button and rewind/fast forward button. Large and a good ratio to he screen. Now there is no volume button slider, all the button are tiny and un-intuitive. There used to be an orange bar at the bottom of a recently watched episode that made it easy to distinguish what I had just watched. Now the recently watched screenshot is harder to distinguish, just to add more useless text. Everyone knows what they are watching. Now when I click on the next episode of recently watched. It takes you to another screen with a wallpaper of the anime you’re watching and have to scroll all the way down or up to where you left off? Why?! Before I would just press on the next episode screen and it was a smooth transition and experience. Just needles remodel and making it busier than what it used to be. Starting to look like Funimation.. and they have a terrible UI interface and experience. I regret updating the app.
ClarissaIssy - For the love of god, please fix this app.
I’m not here to complain about the ads. Maybe it’s a little excessive at times, but I understand that I’m using the free version and the company needs to make money somehow. What really makes me upset is how broken the free version is. Over the past few months, there was a consistent issue where I’d try to watch an episode, but certain ads would freeze the app, and I’d have to restart. Even then it would rarely work, considering it was basically a coin flip as to whether or not each ad worked, and there were 6 ads to get through before the show even started. Now, however, it’s somehow gotten worse. Now when I try to start an episode, it won’t even try to play an ad, and will just blackscreen. I tried restarting the app multiple times and it keeps happening. From looking at other reviews, it seems like this issue has been going on for weeks now. Any other company would try to fix this issue immediately, yet here I am STILL waiting for the issue to be fixed. Again, I understand I’m using the free version of the app, but it’s literally unusable. My cries will probably be for nothing, but PLEASE fix the app.
QueenB15101 - It has Pros and Cons.
When i first got it, it was AMAZING. I only got it to finish the hunter x hunter series since they didnt have the rest on netflix. Everything was perfectly fine, it was well, and overall it was pretty good. But not a while ago i started my free premium trial, because i wanted to start paying for crunchyroll since i saw it was worth it. But i guess I wasn't completely right. After a few days of having it, my videos would not play whatsoever and i had to wait 4 DAYS for it to start playing again, just so a couple of hours later the video doesn't appear anymore and it starts buffering once AGAIN. I dont know why this is happening, im not sure if its my phone, or my trial, because my wifi is perfectly fine, and the videos work perfectly fine in my other phone. I am currently writing this on my IPhone 8+. I hope you can tell me whats going on because i do not want to have to deal with this. I love this app but it sometimes buffers. Please and Thank you.
thepozole - A quiet life
My name is Yoshikage Kira. I'm 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone.
I Luvv teh GaMe - There’s problems with this

Fix the ads make the premium actually for free (cause I’m sick of these ads) and while ur at it if u can pls put kirakira precure sailor moon and all the other precures in bc if I finish healing good and pretty cure I’m not gonna watch the others cuz there bunch of stupid anime (sorry for the anime lovers out there) but I don’t wanna watch gross anime I’m only 12! Please do these fixes and I’ll rate u a 5 star but rn I am rating this app a 1.0 this app is horrible pls fix the ads the premium and put sailor moon and more of the precures in pls if this updates don’t come out than Ima rate this a 0 star rating (I wish I can 🙄) Please do these fixes if you do, Than thank you!!
CAPN_OBSIDIAN - Bug Makes a Great App Frustrating
Normally I would give Crunchyroll a 5 star review, but since the new update the subs stop through an episode which only come back by exiting the video and replaying it. To make it worse, this happens a few times per episode, so I have to do this repeatedly just to get through a single episode.
Also, the subs seem to be a bit bigger, which tend to block some things and cause a distraction. I’m sure this is helpful for those who needed the subs bigger, but for those of us who didn’t need them bigger, it’s a bit annoying. I think it would be best to give an option on the size of the subs, that way everyone wins.
I hope the bug I mentioned is fixed soon so I can get back to more thoroughly enjoying watching! Nonetheless, it’s a good app that brings anime to an international audience in an accessible way. I can’t complain about ads since I have premium, but perhaps they can be more strategically placed for those who don’t. Thanks for the hard work!
game savior - The spoilers
I like the app. I really do. There’s a lot of shows and there are ads but you can buy premium so it really isn’t different from other sources. I’m fine with it. But what I’m not fine with the spoilers the covers give me. I literally cover the image with my hand when I click a anime because that can potentially give me a spoiler. A great example is one piece. I mean the show has over 700 episodes and the cover is the latest season . If you watched the show and know what happens sometimes you know that seeing those people give a huge spoiler. I mean what if there was a show that had the latest season as the cover and you see a character that supposedly died in the first season in their. They died due to losing a body part or something then the image shows them having that part replace with a robotic piece instead. Pretty obvious what happened. If your going to put a image then put it as something that really doesn’t give off to much info on the next seasons.
Metaxia Kessaris - Very good but one problem.
I have been using Crunchyroll for two years now and I am a member who pays monthly. I have been able to access so many anime I have been wanting to watch and it’s so convenient for me. I think the price is 100% worth it because not only does it include anime without ads but hundreds of manga to read as well. One problem I have though is that when resuming to the episode you were watching it brings you back about 7 minutes from where you last were which is very annoying. It makes me go through the episode trying to find where I left off when the app is supposed to do that for you. Also, maybe it’s just my iPhone or wifi acting up, but it takes forever to load sometimes! Even going back 10 seconds in the episode can make it load for 15 seconds. But other then those issues I find the app very helpful for a fellow anime lover.
Kitcat.tictac - Ok at first but the amount of ads got really annoying
It was an awesome place to view anime...at first. The amount of ads that is be played every episode is honestly a little ridiculous. One ad in the beginning when you first click on, four more after the intro theme, four more in the middle cut scenes, and four more at the end if you don't click out on time. I've stopped using the app because it was about 5 whole minutes of ad run time, that might bot seem that much, but it gets really annoying really quickly. I understand that the ads are the source of income of this app but I feel like they could make more money if the cut down the amount of ads per episode. I can deal with watching one or two ads every time and I would have continued using crunchyroll overall gaining them more income because I wouldn't have been chased off in annoyance. Either way, the amount of ads, in my opinion, is just kinda ridiculous. Hopefully they can fix that and I don't have to watch one episode a week to prevent myself from getting so frustrated that I threw my phone across my room.
Jedonurmom - App Functionality Bad
I can’t really complain about having free anime. I love being able to stream animes that I enjoy on the go. The biggest problem I have with the app, is the ads frequently cause the anime to freeze or discontinue and I have to restart it. Another problem I have noticed is if I exit the application leaving it open, just leaving the page to go to the home screen, the app itself freezes and will continue the current episode and I have to start from the beginning. This is very frustrating as I have to rewatch all the ads to continue the show.I have a job where sometimes I get 10 to 15 minutes to relax and I enjoy watching anime. Having to restart the episode every time after I have to pause is very frustrating and almost triples the amount of ads I have to watch. I am totally in support that I have to watch ads because it’s a free service but they need to fix the system so that way I can leave the app and continue watching my show without rewatching all the ads x3, it’s a huge problem.
hdh hdbjv - Too many ads
First I want to start off by saying I get wayyy to many ads on this thing. I have to watch like 3 ads before the episode starts and then after the intro I gotta watch like another 6 ads. You can’t skip most of them either. I’d be ok with like 1 or two ads but 6 or 7 is a no from me. On top of that they don’t even have all the episodes of some of the anime for some reason. For example my hero. I also noticed this thing where there’s a crown on some of the episodes and you have to pay monthly just to watch them. I also think that’s a bit too much. I understand that as a company that you really like money but this is out of control. Especially for people who can’t pay monthly. It’s really really annoying to watch anime on here if you don’t have premium. If you pay monthly none of this stuff happens besides some of the episodes not being there. Other than that I do think it is a good app, but only if you get premium. If your not going to get premium then I honestly don’t think it’s worth it.
miku_016 - I can’t even log back into my account
I have had Crunchyroll before and I had created an account. I had to delete Crunchyroll as there was no space on my phone, I upgraded my storage and I downloaded Crunchyroll back. I try to log in, but it says my login info was incorrect so I check my email and it’s fine and I check my password and I tried a few different passwords I use and none worked! I reset my password and it’s still incorrect, so I reset it again. It’s still not right! So I go and create a new account and it says I already have an existing account!? Also...There are way too many ads. There should be an option where you can watch all the ads before you start watching the episode because every time I watch an episode I get up to 18 ads and instead of watching a regular 30 minute episode it usually ends up being around 45 minutes to an hour and every time I rewind 10 seconds I somehow lose connection with full bars and my screen just goes black and freezes up. Crunchyroll really is a great app with a huge variety to choose from and all the genres of anime, but you really need to fix up the ads Crunchyroll.
Heievausbeveisbevwuwjqvakakqb - Useless unless you pay
I’m actually branching off of another review which completely explains my current situation. The app is completely useless unless you’re going to pay. It’s obviously a ploy to get people to forcefully pay for the premium. I’ve been trying to watch a single anime episode for the past hour. I got 7 minutes into it before I had another ad break. Since then I try to go back, hit “resume” and watch another ad. AFTER THE AD HAS FINISHED... the app freezes and I have to do the same thing over and over and with no luck of continuing the episode. It’s completely frustrating and gross on the developer’s end. To give a free service and it’s complete trash. I’m even scared to pay for the premium with how badly the free app works. I do not want to risk putting my money into a subscription that will potentially not work. Not even the trial. Get you *bleep* together and at least put out a functioning app. *updated* is it NOT possible to reset my password!??! I’ve been waiting 30 min for that link after the app said “link sent”. I’ve tried 2 more times, even checked my junk folder but nothing. What’s your freaking issue?!?
Baby bath - Needs (a lot of) Improvement
Overall, the app is great and is one of the only places I watch anime. But the problem with me, and a lot of other people, is the ads and constant loading and crashes. I don’t like a lot of the things the ads show me, and it gets annoying, since they should cater to me to get me to do whatever they want me to do. Sometimes it takes five minute for an ad to load, and experiencing that every episode I watch gets tiring, especially when the ad plays three times in a row, and I usually stop watching for weeks because I don’t want to deal with ads. And even when I’m motivated to watch an episode, the subtitles won’t even load and I’m stuck trying to figure out what they’re saying. The time it takes to load the episode is annoying too, when I want to go back ten seconds, it takes twice the amount of time it should take to load, and it makes me frustrated. Overall, the app is great, but the amount of bad out weighs the good.
Clafo😋 - Can’t login or make an account
So almost a year ago I got this app to watch anime but I never got around to watching any so I deleted it because it was taking up space. I can’t remember if i made an account or not though. I recently redownloaded it and I tried to make an account but it said “incorrect login information” I was so confused because I was MAKING an account not logging in. I then thought, maybe I already made an account with the email I’m trying to use. I tried all my usual passwords on the login but it didn’t work. I just decided to watch without an account and there was an ad before the episode, no biggie then after the intro, another ad popped up. I thought that was weird but so I skipped through it and another ad came on. Then another. And after like 5 ads I exited the app then went back on it and the same thing happened. I bet it’s a great app but I can’t watch my show. I will keep trying though. I might try VRV next. That’s part of Crunchyroll though. It might have the same problem
EDIT: I got the show to work but the login is still not working
gfrugcfh - Adds
I love Crunchyroll but the adds are annoying you get the 5 adds per video thing if it is 20-30 min long and the first add is only 1 and the other 4 have 3 in them and that can start to get annoying but by far the most annoying thing is the glitching adds where it dose a infinite load on the second add even though the first plays fine and sometimes when skipping part of the video or pause it it gives you another add and making it so the entire screen is a link to the add is really annoying the adds are not the best only thing but by far the most annoying the next thing is just kind of confusing where it says season 2 and doesn’t have a season 1
Or says 1 season and 1 episode even though the anime has 12 episodes and that can kinda get confusing but not that problematic I don’t like but can deal with the fact you can’t swipe down to see the time or a notification without it pausing the video’s and that’s all the problems I can think of off the top of my head
frebelin - So many ads please fix it!!
It could be a 5 star but there are so many ads i was watching darling in the franxx and when it was the time for the ads i went through like 8 for the same ads it gets really annoying so please take Control other the ads this is a big please fix it it is very annoying and some people will maybe agree with me and it doesn’t have 7 deadly sins i am okay with that but please put 7 deadly sins on the app some people with agree with me ok now let’s talk about the good stuff about Crunchyroll so the good things are how many anime’s are on this app so many to choose from i love that part and how u can favorite anime’s to same from later the best that really helps me and the parts of a episode were there are no ads is the BEST thing i ever feel but please listen to your communion and please fix the ads!!!!!!!!! That would mean the world to me! 🙂 every thing is good except for the ads!!! 😕 stay safe stay home wash your hands!!!! Xoxo
Jimjohn2765109 - Subtitle sync issues have spread
I have had an account for around 10 years now most of that premium. During that long period I have had minimal to absolutely zero issues popping up. But that's changed. For first thirty seconds of starting any video from any show, at beginning or continuing, will have subtitles be very off sync with none appearing before they spam flash on screen to catch up until the subtitles get more in time with the words. No pausing or going back or forward can fix or change this problem. Only having to wait for things to adjust themselves fixes this problem. Was a hated problem in vrv app so I have stayed stayed in old and more familiar crunchyroll app. With the newest update (as of this late May/ early June 2020) the vrv sync issue has migrated, so that the issue is present in both apps. I blame this upon the very apparent style change that makes the crunchyroll app work very similarly to vrv.
If the UI or style change had not been changed I'd be having zero issues with the app or company and would continue to find this app amazing.
Shcbe12 - Good service with just a few problems.
Crunchyroll is my favorite streaming services, I especially love the fact that they’re free. The only problem is the way advertising is set up, at least on mobile, it feels like you need the premium service. If you timed out an entire video including advertisements, a decently sized chunk of your time is spent watching ads. This wouldn’t be so bad seeing as basic cable does pretty much the same thing, however the lack of diversity in these advertisements is horrible. I’ll watch a video and during the 3-4 ad breaks, I’ll end up watching the same exact advertisement some 10-20 times. It’s a huge turnoff to be forced to watch the same advertisements back-to-back, sometimes up to 5-8 times in a row, (which has happened to me btw). I love you Crunchyroll and I have the premium service because I know you guys deserve it, but for anyone with a free membership, I hope you can stand repetition of advertisements.
XxMr.WolfxX - The ADs are ALMOST completely broken
Now, I like Crunchyroll, and don’t get me wrong... I might watch anime on it everyday... but that’s not my point. The main thing I’m here to talk about... is the ADs... how terrible they’re working right now.
The current date I’m writing this the ADs are awful, I'm not sure if anyone else is seeing this... but sometimes ADs don't load. So I have to, again I'm not sure if anyone else experiences this, restart the entire app and continue where I left off. I've gotten so annoyed of this, I discovered something else on how broken they are.
YOU CAN ACCESS THE PLAY BUTTON, AND SKIP AHEAD BUTTONS...
This means I can press play when it's loading, and then just skip 10 seconds and then go back 20 seconds, and repeat til the app can't play it anymore. It's absolutely broken. I'm annoyed by the ADs and the method I'm using to do it.
Please fix it... please... I'm begging you. I already get loads of ADs, I don't need them nor working properly.
