4.5 Stars. Ok here is the lowdown on this app and why I gave it 4.5. Let’s start with what every one seems to be worried about: ads. The ads it seems to me bearable. You well run across 3 to 4 ads per video most of the time. Some ads didn’t even play, they just pop up for a second and then resume playing video. Some ads were not so kind, looping the same two ads about 3 times before resuming. Next let’s talk about there subs. Some quality of life improvements are needed in like areas such as timing when a sub is suppose to disappear over translated text to disappear when the screen changes, along with the karaoke during the opening song. Third let’s talk about buffering. I am on 4 g Lte and low res to save data, so only once in a while did it need to stop and buff. I would press pause for a moment to let it get ahead so I can’t say how it would work out for those streaming 1080p. Finally let’s talk content. You’ll find a lot of great content on this app. You won’t find anything by funamation I.e. there dubbed for the most part that I could find but you can find some Dragonball super, along with other popular shows. Some shows are for premium only that you might run across but so far I only found 1 show like that. But if you do op for premium they have 3 plans with the cheapest being around 8 and their highest being about 15. In conclusion any decent anime lover should add this app to there collection.

Just why.. At first I was really happy cause I finally found an app where I can watch anime and foreign dramas. But then the adds came in. It was fine at first cause there wasn’t that many, but then the longer the episode the more adds there was. This frustrated me a lot. I get that you have too make money but could u at least tune it down a little. I just want to watch an episode without getting an ad attack. Everytime I get an ad the load is sooo long. Then after the ad, another one comes in. And then another. There is at least 4 in a row and that doesn’t make me want too use your app. I could never Finnish a 25 minute long episode because that ads turn it into an hour one. I’m waiting and waiting for the ad to Finnish, but then another pops up. And the load is way too long. I sometimes close the app and come back. But that just restarts the ad. Please try to fix this, cause I’m seeing that a lot of people are having the same issue. There isn’t a lot of places where I can watch good shows like the ones on you guys app. Hopefully you can respond to this as quick as possible. And if you do respond to me please don’t apologize and say your going to fix it when you’ll clearly not do so. Once and last time please fix this issue. Thank u if you read this.

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.

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.

Can you please put the rose of Versailles on Crunchyroll?. You have a very large variety of anime but one I feel like doesn’t get as much love is the romance genre. Though I do understand that you are trying your very best to put more romance onto your app, I don’t feel like your new releases are quite what I’m looking for...though I have found some quite enjoyable I continually feel like I’m watching the same thing over and over again. I’m more into the older anime just because the plots were more regular, not everything had to be modern, and the fact that they had more of a balance between drama and slice of life aspect. One variety of romance that I don’t particularly like is harem- tho I do enjoy reverse harem and I know this specific genre is like by some people it’s just not right for me.. I’m not asking for you to stop putting the things and genres that other people like and desire just that you go out of your comfort zone and put something different on here- One thing specifically I would love to have on your app is the Rose of Versailles. I haven’t been able to really watch this series bc of the fact that I can’t find it anywhere if you do have a chance to put it on please do!!

I’m going to be straight up.. I love the app, I really do. I love the selections they have, and I like how simple it is, but there always seems to be a performance issue with the app. I don’t have a membership I’m a free viewer, and I don’t mind the 3 ads with every ad marker so I don’t know if this happens when you pay, but it’s an episode just freezes and it’s unplayable. My latest example of this is with the Konosuba film. I cannot play it at all. A previous example of this was with one of the episodes of Attack on Titan season 3 I’m pretty sure it was only the 2nd episode that just froze and was unplayable. I had to wait about 1 month or a couple of weeks (I honestly don’t remember) to be able to play the episode. Other than these issues I face. The only other issue I have is with the ads, yes I said I’m fine with 3 ads, but realistically it’s still a little much, and also some ads just straight up have spoilers. Like the ad for Attack on Titan season 4. It shows Armin shifting Into a Titan. It was kinda whack learning that surprise (for me at least) through an ad. Other than that I have no issues with the app. I’m just tired of the constant freezing. I also bring this up because I just remembered that episode 12 I believe of Higehiro is also freezing as well. So please just find a way to fix the app and my opinion on it will drastically change.

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

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.

A problem with playing the next episode. For some reason sometimes I encounter a problem where suddenly instead of playing the next episode it will play the same episode over and over again. With this happening I have to exit the episode click on the series and pick the next episode which is really annoying, I’ve tried everything to get rid of it but even if I finish the whole show it will still show I’m on that episode. There’s another glitch in the same group of problem where instead of playing the next episode it will skip to a random episode way later down the line or back before that I already watch, and again no matter what I do it will not fix itself. It only fixed itself one time and I fixed by watching that episode when I got to it, however on any other show this will not work and it will continue to send me to that episode. At first I thought this wasn’t a big deal since it’s not that bad, but overtime, especially when I’m binging it gets REALLY annoying having to pick the next episode by exiting and going back into the series to click it again. Pls fix

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 )

Extremely disappointed. I know the only way people will be able to read this is if it is highly ranked. I’ve been using Crunchyroll for over a year now and there are little glitches here and there but they have never bothered me. The ads can be a bit annoying but I’ve gotten used to seeing them. The problem I’m talking about is how every single show that I’m watching has been locked and is now for “premium watch only”. I was in the middle of a bunch of shows and now I can’t watch any. This would be understandable if it was just the newer shows that were released a few months ago but you locked Naruto?? Now I can’t get past first seasons and I am seriously considering going to another app because this is ridiculous to have to pay to watch everything. I will not spend 8 dollars a month to be able to watch a show that only has 12 episodes I might as well just watch it on another website for free because that has to be my only option at this point. The only reason I even still have this app is because you haven’t locked one piece yet and I am caught up so if you lock it I’m 100% dropping this app. This is just a warning to those who want to get crunchyroll, don’t. Save yourself the time and get another app that is free.

App works terrible on iPad. The app for iPad is awful and makes watching anime an annoying experience. The viewing layout function is constantly buggy. If I put the screen in full size view, once I press the button again to minimize and read comments, my screen does not change. I always have to go out of the anime and press it again and then click more episodes to get to the next episode. This makes me forget where I left off if I am rewatching episodes and it is overall very annoying when I can’t even press the next episode because the screen won’t minimize after clicking the button. Secondly, trying to use the scroll bar to jump forward in an episode is also annoying and buggy as it just does not work. When I try to scroll further into an episode, it will either restart the episode completely or just not do anything. Maybe the scroll circle button is too small or maybe I have big fingers, but even when I use my Apple Pencil I have the same troubles. When I do get it to work, as I move the scroller to skip scenes, the screen gets bigger and minimizes the comment section (hopefully that makes sense). I really enjoy my membership and all it has to offer, but the app gets annoying when I want to watch multiple episodes. I prefer watching entertainment on my iPad so hopefully these bugs can be addressed.

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.

Subtitles.. Alright. So first off, Crunchyroll and Funimation are great. I hope crunchyroll takes some tips from the Funimation app. It’s waaaaay better. But it also has something that crunchyroll absolutely does NOT have. Which is pretty upsetting. Subtitles for English dub. Do they think deaf and partially deaf people not like anime? My fiancé is partially deaf. He can hear somethings but we watch everything with subtitles in case he misses something. He can still hear some and doesn’t want to watch in Japanese because we enjoy the dub better. One of my best friends is also almost completely deaf and tho she has hearing aids sometimes they get uncomfortable and she removes them. If we were watching something on crunchyroll we’d have to stop. Another friend has the same issue as my fiancé. And for me I’ve spent 15 years of my life watching tv with subtitles because I love ppl that are deaf or partially deaf. Even my niece has hearing aids and my nephew who is constantly watching anime with me may need them soon. I’m so used it and I enjoy it in case I miss a word they say or don’t understand one. So for now I’m paying for both crunchyroll and Funimation because some of the stuff we watch is still there and have subtitles for English dub. Please do something about this. I cannot but the only one with this issue.

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.

It’s really a great app. Although it lacks some titles I’ve been looking for it has a lot of great anime’s. Like MHA, bleach, death note, RE:Zero, attack on titan, black clover and a ton more. It’s really easy to search through the selection of anime if you don’t have specific anime’s in mind and you just want to browse. It’s also easy to find a certain anime instead of scrolling through all of the anime’s to find it you can just search for it. And it has a watch list feature so you can find anime’s you want to watch but maybe not right now. I would totally recommend this app the any weeb who doesn’t want to pay 50$ for 1 season of anime. This has really helped me out because I can’t afford to spend that much money on anime. The thing I will say is when you in an ad you can’t make the screen smaller or pause it but that’s about the only thing bad I have to say about it. Also if your not really patient you might want to get a different app because there are a lot of ads but that personally never affected me because I’d rather watch 5 ads in an entire episode of anime than not watch it at all. Anyways in conclusion as long as you don’t mind adds you should probably get this app to be up to date in all of you favorite anime’s

Good but.... Great app to watch almost anything that u cant on Netflix. But I see constantly a specific anime, and the first season is dubbed, but the second season isn’t, that to me is the only issue, I don’t like switching languages every season so if u can release it in both ways that’d be great😃specifically Sword Art Online Alicization: War of Underworlds. Another issue are the ads, I think adding 4 would be fine if u made each add stop only one ad. There’s are usually 4 ad stops in an episode and when they hit it takes 30 seconds to load that ad and then play a 30+ second ad, and then another 30+ seconds to load a second one and a third. I think they load wayyyy too slowly and the ads back to back are too many. If there are 4 ad pauses please make it just one ad long and please load faster because in total if there are 4 ad blocks u spend abt 10 minutes watching ads because each pause loads 3 back to back ads. I wouldn’t mind 4 ads total but I also wouldn’t mind if ur going to keep the same amount of ads, that u just make them load faster instead of have me wait at a black screen for 30 seconds for an ad to show up and then repeat that for another two times. It’s a bit time consuming and sometimes I forget what happened before the ads even began to roll in and forget wat im watching. All in all, shorter faster ad breaks, and release seasons in both languages or just add that language setting in, not for subtitles but for the audio aswell, u know, dubbed.

This is important and something we all need to say and want to say.. xoxo. Anyways, we ALL KNOW the ads in this app are ridiculous. I know it’s a free app and all, and I do really enjoy it and don’t mind a couple ads, but there’s just one problem for me. I was watching mha, yes, my hero academia, and I had a problem occur. So technically what happened, I got ad an, not bad right? After the ad, the anime wouldn’t load. I kept exiting the app, and everytime I went back in it would give me another ad and not load again. Mind you, my internet is not bad at all. You also might be thinking, “it’s probably just more than one ad, and the second one just isn’t loading, so when you go back in it loads.” But no. I was doing this for I know over 10 minutes. I got at least 10 ads and ngl, my night was kind of ruined because it kept happening and I ended up just giving up and going to bed. This might sound like a complaint, and it kind of is, but the moral of the story is to please just fix your ads. 4 ads isn’t bad, and it’s understandable for a free app with a ton of anime and more, but I shouldn’t have 10 ads in just one ad break. (and I probably would’ve had more if I had kept going.) So anyways, a recap, I enjoy the app a lot overall, but sometimes the ads get out of control and just ruin the anime experience for you. Hope you found this helpful, xo

Great App But.... I’ve been using Crunchyroll for some time and enjoy the app very much. It has a great variety (though some of my favorite anime’s are left out) and the ads are fairly controlled. One piece of criticism I’d like to point out is the fact that you have an ad right after the anime opening, which is both annoying and repetitive. The ads themselves aren’t bad and fit my liking to some extent, but consider having more variety to your ads, some of the ads in certain anime are repeated multiple times and gets boring to watch. Not to mention that there are a TON of glitches. I don’t know if it’s on my end or just the app, but sometimes the anime will time out and then go out of the anime, going to the homepage, search are, library, etc. Once I try to get back on the anime to continue watching, the subtitles are gone and I have to struggle with it for about 15 minutes before the subtitles go back on, often they don’t and I have to quit watching for the day. But it’s an occasional problem that I can deal with, I thought I might say it for the fact that it might make a bad first impression on a new watcher, thinking that the app is faulty (which it is most certainly not). Again, it may be on my end. All in all, this is a great app and I would suggest it to any of my friends to watch!

Great app but has some issues. I don’t normally write reviews but I just want to write this so hopefully the issue I have can be fixed. To start this, I would like to say Crunchyroll is a great app to watch any anime in HD. I just recently purchase the premium because I love the experience, watching anime and reading the comments to me make the experience even more enjoyable. My issue with this app for one needs the feature picture in picture added, I like to be able to respond to a message and watch my anime at the same time without force closing the app. The second issue ties in with the first issue, sometimes I would say like 80% of the time when the app is forced closed and you go back to the anime you are watching and you press play, it’ll just revert the video back from the very beginning and take off the subtitle. It wouldn’t seem like it’s a big issue but I just rather be left back where I was at also, when they take the subtitle off themselves the option to put back on the subtitle is greyed out and I have to then leave the video and reopen up the same episode to then put on the subtitle. I hope the creator sees this review and please fix it and I would give this app a 5/5 star because I enjoy this app a lot.

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.

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

Fix your bugs and way too many ads. Listen, I get it you need ads in order to make money you don’t need to put ads at the beginning after the intro and middle and end scene cause that’s just crazy because it’s like three ads for every commercial break and also just a little nitpick with the ads don’t show us the second or next season of the anime we are watching with the next ad because now with re zero an exclusive to crunchy roll i knew that rem would try to hit Subaru didnt know why but i knew and that could potentially spoil some for other anime’s and i have been having this glitch where I’m watching a show go to the Home Screen i come back it gives me an ad even though i was at the Home Screen for five seconds because of an accident ok not that big a deal but then it loads and loads and loads but it’s not having any progress the app just breaks down like my digestive system after having Taco Bell with extra slices sauce on everything it gets annoying because now i can’t watch anything and uhhh quick tip don’t make the ad free one $8 that’s a lil much but i get it because competition also does that please fix this issue and i might get premium it’s worth it too it’s just all the bugs don’t just go poof because you paid 8 dollars you know so thanks for coming to my tedtalk but for now it’s 4 stars just please for the love of god fix these issues

Massive issue. Let me start off by saying Crunchyroll is an amazing app but it still has one major issue and it’s the ads. Now as we all know in the top left corner of the screen it says Advertisements 1 of then how ever many it says it’s gonna show , then in the top right corner it says how many seconds it will last. Now here’s my problem I’ll get ads where it will say Advertisements 1 of 4 but the seconds say 205 Seconds left which doesn’t make any sense and I’ll tell you why the average advertisement is about 15 seconds long but there are some 30 second ones so using that logic 30 times 4 is 120 and that doesn’t match the 205 seconds that it says it will last meaning there’s more then 4 advertisements so let’s figure out about how many there is 205 divided by 30 is about 6.8 so let’s just round up to 7 that means instead of the 4 advertisements it says we get were actually having to watch 7 but here’s where it gets worse there’s 4 ad breaks when watching a 30 minute episode although the first ad at the start is usually just one but that still leaves the other three so let’s do more math 7 time 3 is 21 plus the one ad at the start of each episode making 22 now let’s do more math 22 times 30 is 660 seconds divide that by 60 so we get the minutes and we get 11 minutes which means a 30 minute episode turned into a 44 minute episode. All Im asking is that you please keep the ads short and fix this problem.

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, ;)

The Best Anime App! (however). I have been using Crunchyroll since I ever got into anime and it’s truly never let me down. However the reason from not getting a 5 star is because it’s most recent update gives me this problem where if I’m watching an anime the HUD will constantly pop up on and off without having to tap screen. Sometimes I’ll have a problem where the 10sec skip button just hits itself. Another issue occurs when I pause my show, lock my phone (sometimes completely exiting the app) it will start to just play the audio out of nowhere and no matter how many times I pause it, I end up having to close the app completely in order to stop this. Other than That I realized subtitles have been delayed by like 1-3 seconds sometimes. Not a big issue as the automatic screen tapping but sometimes it’s easy to miss the dialogue without even getting a chance to finish reading it. Regardless once these issues are fixed I’d still recommend this app to anyone. I mean it quite literally has all the anime you want to watch (most ofc) and it’s pretty smooth and I always get high quality so I can’t complain.

Amazing streaming service! Love it.. I really love this service! I haven’t been watching anime for too long but this has honestly helped me start off. There’s so many anime’s that you would probably not be able to watch on other streaming services. I’m happy also that my favorite dubs are on Crunchyroll too, though personally I do suggest maybe add Naruto dub since it’s one of many people’s favorite dub. I do prefer sub in most anime’s though. But for anyone hesitating to get this app, don’t!! I can’t say enough of how cool it it to be able to have all of my favorite anime’s right in front of me, and the ones I’m planning on watching, especially because you don’t have to pay any money if you don’t want to. This is good for young people like me who is a kid to be able to watch without having to spend all of my allowance XD or people that don’t have much money in general. You just have a few adds that are honestly entertaining compared to most places because most base on anime so there fun and Crunchyroll doesn’t have many adds at all compared to a ton of apps which lets me watch and enjoy an anime without being interrupted 24/7. There’s many more reasons why you should get Crunchyroll but I can’t list them all XD just know that it’s an amazing fun place to watch anime!!!!!! :)

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.

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.

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!

Ads and Buffering COMPLETELY ruin the app. I’ve been using crunchyroll for a couple days now and it’s brutal trying to get into any show with the constant interruptions. I usually don’t write reviews but this is actually ridiculous. The show itself buffers so often it’s easy to forget what literally just happened in the show bc of the amount of buffering. Not to mention each time it buffers it takes upwards of 5 minutes just to load about 12 seconds of the show, just so it can buffer again. But now here’s where the ads come in. Not only do the ads also take about the same time to buffer, they are long and usually have multiple ads stacked on top of each other. If you can manage to sit thru the ad buffering and the ads themselves, then afterwards you’re greeted with, you guessed it, MORE BUFFERING! It’s downright unusable more often than not! I’ve tried many troubleshooting techniques and none of them work at all. Not to mention they really try shoving the premium down your throat which sounds enticing to have no ads but that doesn’t solve the ridiculous buffering times. I honestly can’t recommend this app in the state it’s in, it’s way to frustrating to use for so little outcome. Please try elsewhere before submitting yourself to this waste of time

I love this app!. I have had this app for a while I just recently got a subscription to it. I love this app because I love anime and it has all the stuff I like plus more, I used to get annoyed with the ads which is why I got the subscription I was fine with having a smaller selection of anime prior to subscribing because it’s not like I had a lot of time to watch everything I wanted to watch, but getting the subscription makes it so you have access to all the anime on it and there is so much it’s ridiculous but great. And I love how the genres are listed so you can pick something with a specific feeling or theme. I also love that there’s a different amount of people that can watch it at the same time for the subscription I have, I have the fan subscription which is the cheapest one and it’s so only one person can watch it at a time and I love that because I hate sharing my password with people and this way I don’t have to feel obligated to. Anyways this app is totally worth the money and even if you don’t get a subscription to it there are still so many good animes that they let people watch for free with ads. Thank you!!

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.

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.

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

Review. Now first off I just want to say I love Crunchyroll and it is a very well built anime stream service but they have major problems that need to be changed. As for that seasons and episodes are listed all together although they are in completely different languages. This is only a major and irrational problem. I’ve have premium for many years on many accounts and it’s just the small thing that makes the app confusing and sorta irritating to a certain extent. Next small problem is the app for mobile devices it seems to have many problems when it comes to turning off and on cc. Most of the times I have to refresh my whole app 2-3 times just for them to start turning on. Again it’s not a bad problem but it’s a problem a lot of viewers and myself aren’t excited about. But if those apps were fixed I’d say it would be the most perfect app for anime streaming. I think because Crunchyroll and Funimation are doing a partner ship crunchyroll should take some of the things they do just. Just because Funimation is more smoother in the sense of easier to watch and find anime. Other than those little major problems there isn’t anything that makes it a little problematic. Thank you for you time have a great day!!

Adds. It’s not a bad app I really love watching anime and this is one of the best apps because true Netflix does have anime but Crunchyroll has more of variation of animes example fruit basketBut the only thing that is stopping me from using Crunchyroll as much as I do is Netflix are the ads the ads field 10 minutes long and after a while it starts getting really boring and then I start to get on interested in the anime and then I’ll just leave to watch some thing else and usually the ads are the same ads over and over again it gets super annoying sometimes and you get to hear the same noise over and over and over again it drives me crazy I would use Crunchyroll more often if there wasn’t as much ads as they are. Even when the ads are the exact same therefore blocks in different sections of the anime of the same ad and it gets so annoying but overall I really like the app has a lot of variation of enemies and I like how you don’t have to pay for anything. I’m not saying get rid of the ads because I know you can’t fully get rid of them unless we pay but please just make the add shorter or different types of ads.

Ugh my immersion. I actually stopped binging my favorite anime to write this. I know Crunchyroll has always had issues both on the web and the app, and I have always found them tolerable since those issues rarely messed with my immersion- but brooo it is so bad right now. The subtitles are either delayed or they show up before a character speaks. Also, the controls with play bar keep popping up when I do not touch the screen or when my phone is mounted which makes me then have to touch the screen constantly to make the controls minimize again. This has been happening often for the past 3 weeks. I have been subscribed to Premium for about 5 years and I thank you Crunchyroll for those glorious years of you providing me with all the entertainment and escapism I need but you are disappointing me mad hard right now. P.S.: The new UI is cool. I also love that we can view comments now. Y’all are kinda late to the “We have updated our UI” party considering how large your following is but cheers to you for showing up at all. My fingers are crossed for you to continue to make advancements in the streaming service world because I do believe you deserve more clout, but it’s embarrassing for me to keep on praising you when things like this happen.

Good app, but there are some bugs. I’ve had Crunchyroll for years now, and it’s honestly a really great app in itself for watching anime. You can watch on multiple platforms, which is also nice. The layout is very clean and nice to look at. I’ve had no issues with the app over the years, so I would be giving this five stars, but I do have some small gripes. Premium used to be only for having no ads, but now you can’t watch in 720P and 1080P quality because HD quality is now a premium feature. I didn’t mind going through ad breaks, but I find removing HD quality to be a premium only feature to be a bit ridiculous. I’ve also encountered bugs lately with the ads. Sometimes the ads won’t play during an ad break, and the episode’s audio will play, but it won’t resume the episode. I have to exit out of the app to fix this, but sometimes it happens whenever the ad plays. The timestamp also doesn’t continue where it left off, and it will scroll back to the last ad break, so I have to go to the correct timestamp each time. If these bugs could be fixed, that would be really great! Another thing that kind of annoys me is certain titles and dubs are premium only features, especially in certain dubs outside of the Japanese or English language.

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.

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.

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.

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

Good app but needs one thing. I love Crunchyroll. I have been a premium member for a few years now and I don’t regret it at all. I use the website just as much as I use the app but there is one huge problem for me that is in the website but not the app. Reviews. I have started so many god awful anime that sound good on paper but are executed horribly. This is wasting my free time with horrible anime. Although, I know that it depends on the person if they’re going to like it or not. But if an anime is rated one star, it is for a reason. On the website I am the type of person to read reviews to see what I am getting into. Even just seeing the rating of the show out of 5 stars would be enough. If I want to see actual reviews that explain why it’s rated so bad then I wouldn’t mind leaving the app. But I don’t want to have to go out of the app in order to see the rating of the anime by looking it up on google. It’s very annoying and a simple thing to do ( or at least I think it is, who knows, I’m not an app developer ). I know this is just a convenience thing but it’s why I’m rating this 4 stars. The recent update made the app so much better and is more stable than ever. If reviews are added in app then that would make this app that much better.

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.

Here’s the problem. I have a problem with subscribing to the membership plan. Usually, I would just get it the cheapest plan so I can see the newest episodes when they drop and watch without ads, but now I’m having an issue that has its pros and cons. When I first got premium, my plan lasted longer than it should have. Too be exact, I got around 2 and a half months of premium. I just thought it was a big with the first trail or something, but no. Every time I got premium it would last longer. I wasn’t complaining, free premium is great for me, but I also noticed that when I wanted to purchase premium, it would become harder and harder. I would always purchase within the app and whenever I tried purchasing the cheapest premium, it would sometimes not load the payment screen and such. The other plans loaded fine. Right now, I can’t buy premium through the app. It won’t load the payment screen and I don’t really feel that comfortable purchasing premium from the subscription menu on my apple setting. So currently right now, the other subscription levels load fine, just not the cheapest one. Other than that, the app is pretty good in my opinion. I have not had any other issues except for the very rare bugs, and this premium issue, and I can watch most of the shows that I want to watch. I like the app, it just won’t let me purchase the premium right now. As of May 8, 2021

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.

Good for now but potential. One of my main annoyances with Crunchyroll is the fact that it keeps logging myself off from the Apple TV from time to time. Another thing that would go a long way in making the experience better would be to have items organized by the release time. Some animations have special episodes that air between seasons but get to receive a season 55 so If you are just getting into a new anime that has a lot of content out you risk skipping those specials and jump from one season to another confused as to what the time jump was when the content is there just badly organized. One other reason for the 3 starts is that on the Apple TV the app shows you the seasons in all other languages so one annoying thing is that if you finished a season that was just aired in Japanese you keep getting the anime you just watched on up next when there is no new content and just what you just watched being released in English or other language. It would be a better experience if it was done like Netflix where you have the seasons and content organized chronologically and then if season one has English audio available it would be an option on the audio settings and not getting the up next updated as having new content if something gets dubbed to a new language.

Great app & great service. I would just ask for two upgrades to the app. #1 The ability to delete one episode or more episodes from the watch history without having to delete the entire watched history. I find sometimes that I will start an anime maybe watch a couple of episodes but not feel it. I would like to be able to delete it. #2 Now that Funimation and Crunchyroll are now together. I would like Crunchyroll to take on the aspect of how Funimation separates their dubbing (with even multiple languages) and subtitles. I always felt it was a little weird to have a series that only has 13 episodes but is listed as 78 episodes because of multiple dubbings. It is nice to have separation but a series with multiple arcs can get a little confusing. Like with the Funimation app they can select in the episode or in the title page for each series. Giving the customer the chance to choose how they wanna proceed to watch their episodes. Otherwise they do have in their app settings as an audio preference. I do really appreciate all that you do to keep these apps running. I’m just hoping with these two changes things can get even better. Thank you.

My experience using crunchy roll. It was great at first tbh but then after about a month I noticed something strange going on a lot of anime that I didn’t watch was being shown for continue watching at first ignored it but it got harder when someone changed the name on my account that’s when I took action and it got resolved later down the line I got put off my account and had to change the password ( this happened 6 times) and I’ve emailed them about my complaints and said I wanted the account deleted if this issue continued nobody ever got back to me, today I tried to log in and comes to my attention someone’s been having a field day with my account changed the language and all I stopped using it for about a week, please have a way we can view devices using our account or approve accounts that would like to use our account or at least give me a heads up anytime someone logs in as of today my account is deleted and I will no longer be using Crunchyroll will my mind change maybe, maybe not 🫤 some will say I’m being a karen or use better cyber security and I did different passwords and all at one point my password was 100 characters I was literally using my notes section to remember it.

This needs to be fixed.. Ok I love watching anime but watching on Crunchyroll can test your patience. A lot of the time the audio will start to sound weird and muted like someone’s put a cloth of the speaker and using headphones doesn’t help. Then when you reset the app, it will go back to normal but the it will happen again and again each time quicker than the last. And it’s not just the sound when that happens it gets really pixelated as well, then even more till at some points you can’t even tell what the figure is if it’s something in the background or small. Also when you’re done watching a series or something, it will stay on you ‘continue watching’ list and there’s no way to get rid of it. Do you recon that you can change that. But Crunchyroll is an amazing app and when others ones like Netflix run out for what you want, Crunchyroll is the absolute best option for anime lovers for all styles. If you do read this and take it in to consideration I will be very thankful

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) ✌🏻️

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.

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 🙃

Ad system is ridiculous. So look let me break down how the ads work to anyone who hasn’t been through it yet…. So there is 1 ad to start the episode and your thinking well thats not bad, let me finish…. Then a third of the way in theres 3 consecutive ads… around 4-7minutes after that another 3 consecutive ads…. Then 4-7minutes later another 3 consecutive ads…. And most of the time followed by 1 more ad at the end, now we all get they are tyna make money but they are just ruining the experience you spend more time watching ads then watching anime, there is no way to skip ads so its around a minute give or take 15seconds depending on the ad so if you are really unlucky one 20minute episode will have 9-14 minutes worth of ads and usually after 1-2 episodes youll just give up.

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 ✌🏼

Pretty good but one irritating problem. So its pretty good except for one problem that happens all the time to me and idk y but its very very annoying. Its the ad breaks. I have no problem with the ad break itself but it plays its 3 ads and then takes a long time to load or it doesnt load the rest of the episode at all. When i click off to reload it again it just plays the ads again and doesnt load the anime so i never get to watch the episode without going through 4 - 6 amounts of the 3 ads before it finally works with is really really annoying considering that this is the only thing i could find School Babysitters on and i cant get past half way through episode 2. I have checked if its my internet each time which it isnt so idk if its a glitch or something or the app itself but i would really like this fixed thx

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

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, - a costumer trying to leave a honest review.

A huge bug! Please fix!. Hello! I love Crunchyroll, and it’s a really good app! But I have one problem that keeps reoccurring, and it’s bad recently. So, here’s the problem; it turns off the subtitles without you doing anything. Now see, that alone causes annoyance on it’s own, given that you have to turn it back on to continue watching the anime, maybe even rewind a couple seconds because you missed out on what they were saying, but it’s not as easy as that. It won’t allow you to turn them back on, is there a way to turn them on I am missing? Or is it just a really, REALLY annoying bug? Because what I end up having to do is deleting the app, and then reinstall the app. This poses an inconvenience but I usually don’t have a problem with this technique. But ever since I signed in, it won’t be as simple as delete and reinstall it. When I sign in again, it goes back to square one. No subtitles. This is a big issue that makes me not give it a five stars! I beg of you, please fix it! I know you probably won’t see this, but I would love if you would please find it in your time to look over this bug and see if there’s anything you can do about it. Thank you!

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 😋😋😋

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.

This app is okay, but the bugs ruin it. The set up of the app and the selection of stuff to watch is pretty good. Unfortunately I don’t own premium, so ads, which I am fine with. What I am not fine with is how poorly the app can handle ads. Not only does the app fail to properly load the ads, leaving me looking at a spiral indication it is trying to load for hours, but if the ad even loads and plays it goes back to the begging of the episode I am watching instead of the part the ad appeared. And me skipping forward will also cause an ad to appear. These bugs only appear with ads, so to me it clearly indicates that the app is purposely programmed to function like this to make me pay. It instead leaves me bitter about the site and rather go somewhere else to watch something, even if I have to pay there. Please fix

App is good but need some improvements. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to download/purchase the app because I used it as a free user and it didn’t allow me to share my screen in my tv. After I became a member I was able to do it and the app is amazing! Just a few issues that I have experienced are: 1. trying to connect to the tv is not as easy as it looks, but after some attempts it connects. 2. They should fix the text with series that has more than 1 season. If you are watching an anime with more than 1 season the following season would 2 season and so on but in the app it appears as season 33 or some other number that does not match with the order (1, 2, 3…). 3. I got the membership that allows you to share the app with other 4 devices. This is good but no that good if you are not able to create profiles. Therefore, you will be mixing all the anime you are watching with the people you share the app with. Please fix these mistakes! The app will be 100% this way !

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 📝

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.

Love this app but some problems. I’ve used this app for just over 3 months and I’m very impressed. Most anime apps have you to pay money to even watch an anime but this is where the problem starts. Usually when I start the anime, there are usually some pretty long adds for 15-20 seconds or so. This would be fine but there are not skippable. You also can’t mark where you are up to in an episode but it’s alright because most of the time I can remember where I’m up to. The last two might only be me but some animes need premium to watch which is kind of frustrating (but I’m fine with that ->-.) The last one is the comments. I think most of the shows have a comment sections, and in most of those comment sections, there are spoilers. I know but there is a feature for flagging spoilers and I’ve used that before. But sometimes it doesn’t work and doesn’t flag the comment. I was kind of sad at first but it might be a glitch. I still like the app and hope you can fix these issues :)

Its a good app. This is a really good app, though it has a few problems. 1: subtitles turn off randomly (for me) which is annoying at times, but easy to turn back on so it’s ok 2: you cant delete things from your ‘recently watched’ section. This is annoying as well. It takes up so much space/time going through my watch history to find an anime, yet all i can see are the ones I’ve already finished. Please add a feature that lets you remove things from your watch history! 😅 it would really be great. Other then these two things, it’s a really great app! I would definitely give it five stars if these two things where not a problem!

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.

Offline mode is very buggy. I downloaded a a few anime series to watch on my flight over the week to use in offline mode. They were all marked as downloaded before I got on my flight. Once I put my phone into aeroplane mode, half the things I downloaded were marked as expired so I couldn’t watch them. I tried to play some of the episodes that weren’t “expired” and it stated that it could not establish a connection to Crunchyroll — this is in offline mode, which makes offline mode absolutely useless. If you can’t watch the anime without a connection to Crunchyroll, then how is this offline? One of the episodes I did manage to get working had an issue where the subtitles would freeze if trying to view the video in full screen. There was no point straining my eyes trying to read the subtitles in portrait mode. This was extremely frustrating - I was hoping to catch up on a few series on my flight. Please fix this issue.

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)

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

Wayyyy to many ads. Ive used Crunchyroll for a while now, and it’s a really good app to watch anime. But as a broke person who can’t spend money on things that aren’t needed I don’t have a membership. You know what that means? Each episode I watch I get about 10 ads! I know you people need to make profit somehow but wow I feel like I’m watching more ads than the actual show! Could you maybe give out less ads? I would be fine with watching these ads if there weren’t as much as you showed us. The ads come up at such random times so it’s quite annoying. I’m pretty sure you already do this but, maybe just keep ads in a place not random, some anime’s have places in the middle of the episode for ad breaks ( Eg in bnha in the middle of an ep it shows someone and what their quirk is and stuff about them) maybe you could just keep the ads in those places? Thank you Amazing app but please take this into consideration

opportunity. Hi, I am a former animelab subscriber and am now looking for a new home. Funimation have acquired animelab and Funimation app for viewing anime is simply trash. If crunchyroll can make a good customizable feed of new shows to watch (animelab has this) that would be amazing. So hard to find the new shows that have just aired you need to actually have knowledge of when each show airs. Would be much better to just select the shows for the feed and as a new ep is listed it appears there. Also we need the option to mark shows and series as viewed to remove irrelevant dubs from the feed. That’s the feedback I have hopefully these features come at some point. Cheers!

In defence of crunchyroll. Crunchyroll is an amazing app but some people don’t think so. I want to rebut some points other people have made. 1.STOP BLAMING ADS crunchyroll has the largest anime collection in the world and they need money to pay for that collection. Just because there are a lot of ads doesn’t mean that the creators want there to be ads, they just have to put them in. Secondly premium is not stupid. As I said Crunchyroll needs money and they either need ads or subscriptions to get that money. Crunchyroll shouldn’t even be free it should be like Netflix but it’s better because there’s a free version which is just a little worse. I hope u now agree with me that this app is unfairly criticised.

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.

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

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.

This streaming platform has changed and I’m not a fan. I started watching anime on Crunchyroll a few years ago, and honestly I loved it! Then I took a bit of a break for a few months until now to finish watching the anime’s I had started, but things have changed and I’m not a big fan. You can only watch the first season of an anime, making you hooked onto it, then after that you have to pay for premium when it used to be free to watch but if you wanted to watch in English you would pay for premium. I understand it’s to make money but it really bugs me, if there was a lifetime/pay once membership I may consider paying for it but right now, Crunchyroll is useless to me.

Awesome but..... Love it I love how you are able to watch some anime's for free without a subscription. But also I don't really understand how you can watch season 1 of demon slayer for example for free but not season 2 or mugen train! I’m just hoping you people read this and make the Japanese audio of anime's such as demon slayer and make it free to watch without the subscription like what you guys did with season 1. I find it weird why season 1 no dub is free but mugen train and season 2 no dub is not! Thats why I’m giving this a 4 star. But please do read this and think about it. You guys can make the english or Spanish version premium but the original Japanese version for free.

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

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.

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

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 😅😅😇😇🥰🥰🥰

Great app but needs a little fix up. So far the app is great, great UI and content. The only problem I have is I’d like to know when the next episode of the shows I add to my watch list. I understand the app has a notification system but I have never received a notification about any of my shows. The other thing that bugs but isn’t a major issue is when you open a show that has multiple dubs on it the app thinks the dub is a season. For example if the show is new and says it has 4 seasons but really it’s season 1 in 4 different languages. If this was just fixed a little it would make the app look cleaner. Overall the app is awesome.

Please fix this app.. The app is good and all in many ways, but there are a few problems. One major problem for me is that sometimes when I go onto the next episode of something it just turns black the whole way through and doesn’t let me go back a few seconds or minutes and this really annoys me. I am unable to watch my favourite anime’s because of this. Another problem I have is terrible old software this app uses. It’s so laggy and bugs always happen because of it. Update your software to a new one so we don’t have to buy premium JUST to have a good experience using this app. Your website is good, but on my phone I can’t ever do anything on your website like watch series? Other than all of this I am glad you can use Crunchyroll without an account. That’s really helpful for 12 years olds like me who have strict parents. But then again please fix these things I said.

Not worth the money.. There is no point in downloading the app and buying a premium subscription. It is a waste of money. If you dont buy a premium subscription, you have to watch a 25 mins episode with 10 ads. If you buy a premium subscription, the subtitles switch off on its own and the episode is played back from the very beginning. Even if the subtitles are switched off there is no way to turn them back on using the setting icon on the screen. You have to close the app and open it again, but it still does not work at all; after u have watched a episode for few minutes you will encounter the same issue again. It not worth the time and money at all, I would genuinely prefer watching it over some third party websites.

Terrible app - great Anime. Crunchyroll carries lots of great Anime titles but this app is horrible, beyond a joke. I’ve been paying for this service for years and they still haven’t fixed basic usability bugs. The player regularly hangs and buffers refusing to play even on a new iPhone and fiber wifi connection. Sometimes episodes just won’t play no matter how long you let them buffer. The player fails when you scrub forward or back, its bit like other apps where you can skip around seamlessly, try skipping 10 seconds forward and the whole thing lags for 30 seconds. Not to mention other niggling bugs that have been reported for years and never fixed such as new episode notifications for anime that have finished, etc. It’s just amazing how low quality this app is for something that is paid for by subscribers. Just look at any one of the other 100 streaming apps and bring it up to scratch please!

Adds. I’ve been using Crunchyroll since 2019 and this is my only complaint about the app. I remember when there was a glitch to skip adds when you didn’t have premium, but they fixed the glitch now which is understandable. What is also understandable is getting like 1 or 2 adds and both combined should not go for more than 2 minutes is what you would think right? Wrong! You get 5 adds each time each spanning from 30 seconds to a minute! And you can get adds 3 times an Episode! Meaning that adds extra 7 and half to 15 minutes of just adds! Now I love crunchy roll but this is my only problem, to many adds that take to long! I think most people would be happy with just 3 adds instead of 5 I know I would.

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

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.

IMPROVE ASAP!!!. My pros for this app is that I do enjoy the anime that crunchyroll provides and also it’s just an app where you can enjoy lots of anime. My cons are that they do not provide some of my favorite anime’s that I would love to watch and also they put in too many adds and I really starting to make me angry. There’s always 2-3 ads in the beginning of an episode, the middle of an episode, and the end of an episode. I would really appreciate it if crunchyroll could see this review and respond and hopefully they will improve their app. I also believe that many other people want to watch anyone without any annoying ads in the way. I just hope that crunchyroll can add more anime and reduce the ads and also I recommend a skip button for the ads. This app disappoints me in a lot of ways but I just want to watch anime and when more people get crunchyroll, I am pretty sure they will come to realise how annoying and how much of a rip off this is. Please find this problem as soon as possible because me and many other people are desperate for good quality on this app.

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!

Dear Sir C. Rœnchë-Rełl,. Everything about this app is splendid but I am having this one rather annoying problem where every time there is an ad break and it finishes, the video will reset to a previous point in the episode. For example, there is an ad break at 15:00 and then after the ad break, the video will reset a marriage of minutes or to the very start of the entire thing. This ‘bug’ is rather time wasting and my experience of the eloquent app would be much greater if thee were to change such a thing. Other than this interruption ‘bug,’ almost everything about this is pleasant, however, at times, the interface can make me feel a little bit lightheaded. From, Lord Crį. Ś-tî n ånœ

Doesn’t connect to tv and too many ads. Crunchyroll is a ok app but I would only use it if the other streaming platforms didn’t have the anime I wanted. first of all there are way too many ads like 15 a episode and they are all the same no different ads. I understand that crunchyroll needs to make money but 15 of the same ad your not gonna make people buy or get the product your advertising with 15 of the same ads. Second thing is crunchyroll is so hard to connect to my tv it’s sometimes taken me over 10 mins to connect then i get out of the app for one second no joke one second it starts playing on my phone doesn’t disconnect from my tv but now I can’t press play skip forward rewind a little or get it to go onto the tv again. Crunchyroll just has way to many bugs.

Too many adds. I love the app and that fact that I can watch anything without needing premium which you can’t do on AnimeLab or Funimation right now,however as I’m watching the shows I’ll get 4 different brakes for adds and normally that add can repeat up to atleast 4 times. It is great for all the shows there hasn’t been one show I’m not able to find on there yet but between episodes it takes forever to load and I don’t know if that’s just my internet connection but yea. Good streaming app but only if you have some patience( idk if that’s the right spelling). Anyway if your reading this and going to down load the app enjoy!

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? It's fine 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

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.

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.

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😌🙂

New animes. There is only popular animes, add other animes

Premium is worth it. Ok look, I read so many reviews saying omg I hate ads! But think about it, it’s essentially the Netflix of anime, is Netflix free? No! Someone has to pay for the shows that Crunchyroll offers! Either they get paid by advertisers, or you pay with a measly 10 bucks a month (7 if your American) it’s not that much! And honestly premium is so worth it! I have binged so much anime ever since, and I love it! So Crunchyroll keep up the good work and stop whining about a company making money, if Crunchyroll didn’t offer free viewing with ads, then there would be no viewing at all!

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

Very good just one thing. All I want for this is the English Dub for any show that has one otherwise Great

Ewww. Pourquoi il faut un abonnement 🤬

Good app, but. I wish you could watch it in English! The sub titles are nice and all but I’d like to hear the English dub

There’s no dubbed anime. There’s barley any good anime that are dubbed. Like naruto demon slayer dragon ball fix your app

You guys should add English to Naruto or sum. That will be sick

English and adds. There are to many adds and thus app doesn’t have much English anime or dubs so it isn’t that good

You’re better off pirating. With how often this app crashes on me it’s not worth paying the subscription, especially now that they have their multiple layered subscriptions and are owned by Sony. Sony will gut them. You’re better off finding a place to pirate your anime from

LET US CHANGE OUR USERNAMES!. I love this app, if you’re seriously gonna make me delete my whole account and lose track on all my anime on there just to have a better username? I will haunt you. PLEASE LET ME CHANGE IT! I WAS 13 AND FAR TOO ANGSTY TO BE MAKING USERNAMES! Please, please, pleeeeeeeaaaaaase. 😭 I can’t deal with the shame of it no more.

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.

Complaining ?. For those down voting the apps because you need to pay to watch anime. There is people working on those anime and they need to be payed. Why would you downvote a app because anime ain’t a free thing ? And how could it be ?

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 .

only works half the time. I pay for premium but even still the app barely works. Half the time i’m on the app, my watchlists and history wont load, the anime wont play, or the app wont connect to chromecast... honestly this is such a waste of money. Before they charge their customers, they should make sure they actually have a service to deliver

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.

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!

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.

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!!

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 👎

Error. Constantly unable to load my watch list!

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.

Apple TV bug. can you guys please put up Case Closed season 2?

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. It’s infuriating.

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.

Good but lots of bugs. I had no problems till recently but I can’t watch at all now because the video doesn’t load and the controls disappear. No ad plays but it seems like it is trying to load an ad. There has always been a problem for me with the ad loading but it won’t load at all now, with the new update the app is unusable basically. I haven’t been able to watch anything on my phone for the past week now. Please fix this.

I Deleted this. I did it for two reasons; one I can’t find 6 of my favourite anime’s. Two, you idiots decided to make Rent-A-Girlfriend for premium only when I was on season 2, along with many other people who were in the middle of watching it. Thank you for understanding, and please don’t do this again.

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

Black screen and videos stopped working.. I’m furious. What’s the point of a streaming app if it won’t work?

Ads. Why do I get ads after subscribing???

Rats. Paid for premium because I hate ads and now they give me an ad for some crappy merch that will null any chance at reproduction

The ads. I read the bible twice and my episode was barely finished because the ads made it longer

good so far. i've just bought premium and the one thing i would want is more lgbt anime with a section just for it. it's what i like to watch most and would rather be able to watch here than on any websites :)

Blows fat loads. Was pretty decent until recently, now when it tries to load the controls disappear and nothing happens. Makes it straight up unwatchable, I recommend another streaming service at least until they fix this.

Caca. I tried downloading it again it it just keeps loading but I had enough storage 😪 I wanted to watch demon slayers

Do not get this app in less you are going to buy premium.. This app does not have a large selection of anime an less you buy premium and even if it will let you watch the show without premium it only lets you watch it, it doesn’t let you watch the first episode or the last episode of the majority of the shows.

Still No TV App Support in Canada?. Seriously, it’s been years, people. Of course, one can do whatever they want with no serious competition pushing them to do better...

It’s alright. Crunchyroll is a good anime website and people can use it on chromebooks (school chromebooos) cause the board likes the block unofficial websites since crunchyroll is official you can use it at school

Downloads are ridiculously slow.. Websites great, app is annoying. No matter how fast my internet is, it takes forever to download episodes for offline viewing. Re -installed the app several times. The whole point of me paying for crunchyroll was to watch anime offline.

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.

DON’T RESET APP DATA. Lost my premium after deleting all app data for crunchyroll on my IPhone

Sous titres FR. Pas assez de sous titres en français.

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.

Good but ok too. I do love this site I watch all my anime’s on it, well most of them. There are a lot of anime’s were you have to pay premium and there are so much ads like SO MUCH. Another thing is that there are almost no English dub on her and me Personally like English dub more.

Always crashing. It sucks when u pay for an app that doesn’t work...

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.

Can’t get premium. I can’t get premium, when I select it from the app it just sends me back to the same page after a few seconds. I have no intention of subscribing from your website unless you implement Apple Pay, you have no business storing my credit card info.

Addddddsssss. Good app but tons of ads

Bruh. Why do u need Premium for literally every anime

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

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.

Good selection but terrible connectivity. So I have made the switch from funimation to Crunchyroll and honestly am not happy with how Crunchyroll is formatted compared to funimation. There is no reason to have every dub labeled as a a season just have a language selector, it makes the app feel clunky and hard to maneuver especially since in some devices I have to wait for some text to scroll through because the title is pretty long. Plus For some reason the app keeps disconnecting me from my internet or it buffers for five minutes and skips an episode. I never had this problem with funimation. I’m not a fan of paying to be kicked out of the app I’m watching stuff on. I wish they would add a feature to go to all the shows episodes before starting the episode, especially since the app keeps kicking me out and skipping episodes. I understand this is supposedly crunchyroll “beta” but this app has been around for a while it’s not new to being an anime app. I want to have a good watching experience on this app, but everything I’ve listed is making it quite difficult to do so I hope others aren’t paying to have th same trouble I am with being kicked out of the app!!

Love it but one issue. Don’t get me wrong I think this app is a great place to watch anime, but I have one concern. So I tried to figure out how to delete shows from the continue watching and apparently there is no way to delete something. But as i started watching more things, the anime at the very back started to drop of to make room for the new shows i started. I was fine with that until about a few days ago when everything started showing back up again even though it had been taken off months ago. And on top of that the anime that i was watching disappeared from continue watching. So i had to search it up and scroll through all the episodes to find the one i was on. And then things started to delete from my list even though i was not deleting anything. Then after a few days everything would start to show back up and then disappear again. I do not understand if something is wrong with my account but i cant easily find the shows I’m watching because they disappear, so if anyone knows how to fix this please let me know. Thank you! ❤️

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.

“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.

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.

Simi Satisfied. From a cell phone perspective. Let me explain 1.)The language selection is annoying and could use an update. I don’t mean to be rude, but it’s just messy and unorganized. It’s currently season 1 of XXXX Season 1 of XXXX (English) Season 1 of XXXX (Spanish) Season 1 of XXXX (German) season 2 of XXXX Season 2 of XXXX (English) Season 2 of XXXX (Spanish) Season 2 of XXXX (German) I put “Season 1” and “Season 2” to prove my point. Maybe make it to where you click on “Season 1” and select your language from there. That seams more practical. 2.)Allow me to read reviews about a show (on my phone). I don’t mean comments on episodes. I mean reviews, so I can better decide if a show is worth watching or not. 3.) Creat a section where you can see if someone “like” or “Reply” on your comment. We anime weirdos like nothing more than to talk anime with our fellow weirdos. 4.) Also a dub does not count as a “new episode” 5.) I’ve paid for the monthly subscription every month for God know how long. I don’t wish to sound entitled, BUT why is my anime CENSORED when I have adult content UNLOCKED?!?! This is by far my biggest complaint(well this and #1). I would like to end by thanking everyone at Crunchyroll for all your hard work.

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?

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😤

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.

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.

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.

OVERRATED.. this app is extremely overrated, and should be 2 stars instead of five. Once I download the app, I get punched in the face with ads, and I also bought this app specifically for one anime that was only available on crunchy roll, (shiki) and now, apparently, crunchy roll doesn’t have it. I’m really bummed about that, and I just start watching the first episode of boruto, because I’m curious. It was VERY glitchy, (and it’s not my internet btw because I have my own router in my room) and was loading a lot, and they only had the subbed version. Some anime’s I like to watch in Japanese, but other anime’s, I like to watch in English, and they didn’t have the English version. And when I touch ANYTHING I get an ad. For example, I could start watching something, then get 2 ads before I can start the show, and then, after the intro, there is ANOTHER ad, and so at this point, I just tap out of that show. Then I get ANOTHER ad just because I tapped out of the show. Crunchyroll is 5 rated 5 stars for no reason, and funimation, which I have never even downloaded or tried, is 3 stars, and I know for a fact that funimation is probably better. so please, someone, get back to me and AT LEAST add the anime shiki back because that’s the whole reason I downloaded this app in the first place.

2 star should be 5…Ads are an issue…. Love Crunchyroll! Great to have a free app to watch the best anime available. A HUGE problem occurs with the ads however. Some of the ads load and play just fine, it’s the larger advertisers that are spoiling it. They require huge amounts of data in order to stream and freeze up more often than they play. I don’t have great Wi-Fi and forget them ever playing while using cellular data. You might think that its the device being out of date right? Well maybe that is true, but if a two year old iPad Pro is to old for these ads then I will just have to delete the Crunchyroll app and find another way to watch anime no matter how much it pains me. I would love to just go premium, but right now that is just not an option even at the great rate Crunchyroll offers. This issue is sometimes resolved by restarting the episode or the app, but only if that same commercial doesn’t start again. I’ve spent 30 extra minutes playing an episode taking the total time of a 24 minute episode to 54 minutes….not cool, I could have watched two episodes and not had the blood pressure spike during my relaxation time. I hope this issue can be resolved before my patience expires.

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.

Why.. tho??. I wanted to watch anime and I heard this was a great app to watch anime on- but I’m frustrated and sad that we have to get premium for an anime. I understand paying for premium supports Crunchyroll and all that but I realized that the only anime that doesn’t need premium is “My Hero Academia” and yeah there’s probably other ones that don’t need premium. I know there’s other people on the app that are also upset because you have to pay for premium “we” want to be satisfied by all the anime right? So why put premium for like all the anime’s? And also the 1 free episode is always the one that gets you into the anime! I really want you guy’s to at least take it on the most popular anime’s. I’m really interested on watching “ Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club” so yeah- ( sorry i sounded rude 🥲😭) Since I started watching MHA- straight to the point the ads are annoying why is there like 10 in each episode??? Not only that but in one ad it adds up to 2-3 like I can’t enjoy watching the anime anymore tbh bring it down a little please.. like 3 ads is enough. Please and thank you fix the ads problem! Premium isn’t necessary in every anime 🥺😭

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. :-)

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!

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.

Love the app, but there’s some problems…. All I wanted to say was that this is an amazing app to stream anime, but there are some problems. I think I’m speaking for all people with a free account when I say that there are too many adds. There’s an add before you start watching, after the intro, and twice while you’re watching the show, so thats four, and there’s usually two to three adds in there which is really annoying, so something to fix would be the adds. Something else would be to add more dubs. For example, one of my favorite animes, Haikyuu, doesn’t have a dub. I used to watch it on Netflix with the dub, but when it got removed, I had to go somewhere else to watch it, hoping that it would be dubbed, and it wasn’t. I’m getting used to it, but it would be awesome if it was dubbed, so please do that. Otherwise, it’s an amazing app to stream anime. Thanks for reading!! P.S., Sorry of those are hard things to fix, I just think it would make the app even better if the adds were removed and if more animes were dubbed

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.

Terrible App/Mediocre Service. The app doesn't work half the time. I've been trying to get the casting to work and it keeps telling me that it's not enabled in my settings even though I'm looking at it directly and it is. And then proceeds to tell me that my devices are not on the same net work, but I know that they are because it works with every other streaming service I have. The layout is absolutely awful, and is incredibly messy. The home screen is an absolute disaster and is useless, I end up having to go to my watchlist instead which is just another button to have to press to get to my stuff. it's also extremely annoying to physically have to go from one season to the next, instead of it just continuing to play in the language that was selected. I also don't understand why shows don't clear out of my continue watching when there is not another episode in the language I was watching. When I finish an entire show and then keeps it up there and starts season one episode one in a completely different language that I have never even watched. It's just so clunky that it doesn't make sense and if the option to only stick with Funimation would've been available, that's absolutely what I would've done. if there is any other way to watch the show you want, do that instead

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.

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.

Counterproductive update. I'm just now making this review, however, Crunchyroll's new update is doing more harm than good. Majority of the shows are now premium only including most of the ones that were in my currently watched section. I could no longer watch half the anime's I could that summer because they were premium. I'm sure this was to get more money by forcing people to get premium because without it, you can only watch extremely popular shows like one piece, Naruto, and bleach. But even the popular shows are being shown as premium only. HxH is free for about 35 episodes and then premium for the rest which makes no sense. This will only cause people to delete the app and seek other apps that have more freedom in terms of watching shows. People may even find online websites in order to avoid spending unnecessary money. The way Crunchyroll was before was much better than the one now. Also not to mention, the ads are way too long considering there are about 3 or 4 (I can't remember) per episode. If you're going to take away majority of the good shows and only give them to the premium users, at least shorten ads considering the shows that are available either aren't the best or are already too popular to make premium.

Waste of money. I saw a lot of reviews talk about the ads which were definitely annoying but whatever the episodes are free so I can put up with some but it made me want to stop watching anime and lose interest in the plot since each 20 min episode took like an hour to watch. Anyways I’m writing this review for something else. First I’d like to say Crunchyroll has a good selection of anime but the app has a lot of work needed still. I actually purchased a membership to avoid the annoying ads but even then the video takes SO LONG to load. At first I thought it was my internet but even when I turn it off and use data on my phone I have the same problem. Anytime I skip ahead (10 secs or just the intro) it will buffer and won’t load anything for 5-10 min even when I close out the app and open it again. The same thing happens when I rewind 10 secs or even pause the episode. EVEN PAUSE. It is actually even more annoying than the ads because at least then I knew how long I had to wait. I am very disappointed in Crunchyroll and definitely regret paying for a membership. Seriously even though the reviews all talk about how unbearably annoying the ads are, at least it’s not as bad as this. Don’t waste your money on a membership you will just be disappointed.

Great but serious glitches. I’m a premium member and really like this service. However, I’ve noticed some annoying glitches that occur. For starters, sometimes when I pause a show, it starts playing again without me pressing the button. It even does this if I pause and leave the app, and it starts playing outside of the app as well. This is annoying because if I hit pause for a minute and get up to do something, the show starts playing on its own and I have to rewind. Next, and this one is probably the worst one, sometimes Crunchyroll will not let me connect or randomly sign me out of my account. A few minutes later it lets me back in, only for me to find that the app erased my entire queue and watch data with absolutely ZERO input from me at all. This has happened twice today and it’s a real inconvenience, because my queue consisted of about 10 different shows that I had begun watching or was planning on watching. Now I have to add them all back and I might forget one or forget which episode I’m on. Please fix these glitches. Other than that I really appreciate the service.

Amazing but... The app is amazing don’t get me wrong it’s just that there are adds every-time you watch something. I suggest having two adds for the beginning and the end of the anime. The reason I don’t like all the adds is when it gets to an interesting part boom and add then I have to watch two or three adds... Other then the adds the app is awesome and I just love how you can watch any anime though i would also suggest to add a few movies for people who can’t watch them personally I haven’t seen the Hunter x Hunter movie and I haven’t finished watching the show so I’d like for the movie to be there instead of me looking everywhere for the movie but if you can’t do that it’s all fine because the app is already amazing! But if you haven’t download this app I suggest you do if your a big anime fan! And back to the too many adds topic, I have a hack if you aren’t connected to your WiFi you won’t get adds but the show your watching will stop and you’d have to unpause it. I can’t do this since I don’t know my password but it’s ok. Anyway amazing app just needs less adds and maybe a few movies some people can’t watch 😁

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.

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.

Videos aren’t working. For some reason I can’t watch certain episodes of certain shows on my roku. It just started happening within the last few days. So far it happens with ‘School Babysitters’ and ‘Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting’. I can’t watch the first episode but I can watch the second one or I can’t watch the first four episodes but I can watch the fifth one and then I won’t be able to watch the seventh one. It won’t even let me cast to my roku from my phone and I hate using Airplay. I haven’t tried any other shows yet. Please update and fix. I can click on the episode but then I get a black screen although it still has the episode title up in the corner. There’s no problem with playing it on my phone, just the roku. If fixed then I will gladly change my rating. …I just tried it again. I tried pausing and then pushing play and it will try to load and stay at 33% the whole time until eventually about a minute later something pops up saying “Oops! Something went wrong. Crunchyroll application error.” But it doesn’t tell you specifically what went wrong. I tried uninstalling the app, resetting the roku and then reinstalling the app but nothing changed.

Yeah no I hate this app now!. Developers, 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!

A bit disappointed and I have mixed feelings.. I know that I’m probably not the only one. But I am quite upset and disappointed that Crunchyroll has so many anime marked as dubbed but yet it doesn’t show the dubbed series even available. You know sometimes you just get tired of staring at the screen reading the subtitles. An sometimes you want to actually listen to it in English or in another language that you understand that is available. I feel that if they’re going to marked anime dubbed, then they should have the dubbed series on there. An if they can’t put the dubbed English/other language versions on there, then they need to remove the dubbed word off of the anime…until they can bring it back. Most of the time I don’t complain about it. But my eye sight is getting worse and so are my migraines from staring at the screen for too long trying to read the subtitles all the time as well. An when you love anime a lot and I mean a lot. Therefore it’s the main thing you love to watch. It makes it difficult to constantly read subtitles. Other than that I love Crunchyroll and the selection of anime that they have.

Poor internet compensation.. I would have been more than glad to rate this five stars. But just recently there was an update that makes using this app with slowish wi-fi impossible. If i try to load an episode normally, it will no longer wait until my selected resolution is loaded enough to play. It will only play at 240p! And even downloading episodes doesn’t work because it seems it has a time limit set to where it just gives up if it takes to long. And if i try downloading the episode again, it starts over! Im even downloading at medium quality, not high. I can’t think of a reason why you guys would make this change, and also without saying anything in the update history about it. Im just asking for you guys to reverse whatever you did to make the episodes start playing on 240p instead of waiting for the selected resolution to be ready. I don’t really care about the download (or syncing) time limit, it’s just inconvenient. But i don’t see how that would be too hard to change, the Pokemon TV app has no issues with it. Please do what you can if it’s not too much work, thank you 👍

3 Turn Offs (Updated). I have a membership with crunchyroll so I cant give you insight on how bad ads are, there’s other things I wanna talk about though. Lack of Content- There are so many anime’s, movies, and content that’s out there. So many of my favorites have been taken off of Crunchy Roll. You’re seriously lacking and you need to pick up the pace if you want to compete. Baiting- This isnt a major issue but it still is a turn off. Stop making it seem like you have new content but when I check it out there isn’t any. Examples? New dub versions with different thumbnails than the original. It makes me think there’s a new episode and when I check it out it’s just a dubbed episode which makes me mad. Another example? You don’t have season 2 of One Punch Man. So why does the Thumbnail have Garo who only appears in season 2? That’s almost the same as lying. The account autologoff thing was fixed so thankfully that’s over with, however there’s a new issue now. Subtitles are suuuper delayed and it seems to be random. It’s incredibly frustrating and annoying. Other than that Crunchyroll is a great service. I’ll update the stars.

Great streaming service but a few bugs need to be smoothed out. Never really had any issues on my ps4 but when I got the 5 the app kept crashing on it like froze up the whole console to the point where hard resets where the only option didn’t wanna risk it messing up my console so I’ve been streaming on airplay the past two years and there’s still some minor issues like it didn’t wanna play an episode that wasn’t starting from the beginning idc if it was 5 seconds in it was like nope not today would try sliding the bar back to zero and pausing then try to start and it would just forever spin the loading circle… to be fair that hasn’t happened in the past few months so maybe it got sorted but what it is currently doing is the whole app closes on my phone when clicking an episode , usually after just finishing one and I’m clicking the next episode… not the biggest issues, minor imo but just thought worth a mention incase admins actually read these to see what they can work on to improve experience.

Anime is my world. It’s so much anime old and new which is awesome because I’m into all types of anime and y’all are always adding more stuff. I like that you can upgrade and it doesn’t even cost that much and you get benefits. I love how y’all always keep us posted on new animes that are coming soon. I like that I don’t have a problem with this app freezing or giving me a hard time to play the anime. I like that we can write comments about the anime and give it 👍🏽 or 👎🏽 depending if the episodes were good or not. One day I want to be able to search for any name and it will pop up and I’ll be able to watch it…..unlimited anime that would be a beautiful dream come true. Thank you for all y’all do for us I deeply appreciate it and I’m so thankful and greatful to y’all that I’m able to watch lots of anime. Another thing I love is that whatever I add to my list it never gets deleted actually I don’t think the anime’s that are here ever get deleted which is a very beautiful thing because sometimes (I know I do) like to rewatch the same anime if it was that great so thank you for that.

Issues. So the app is really good but there is 3 issues that I think should be fixed 1.Not that much of an issue but the captions are too early and I get confused because sometimes there’s Captions right after that 2.Kinda an issue that is probably relatable to a lot of people who want to watch it dub (Idc but for certain anime’s I watch dub) There is not dub for all anime’s and I think you guys need to work on that 3.This is the worst issue that everyone who has or does use Crunchyroll experiences, the ads i started off with one ad and then it started growing up to 6 ads and this causes lots of people to get mad and it is concerning if you could kindly remove ads or give 2 per episode that would be great because most people are getting annoyed by this and it is really bad I can not deal with these ads and especially when you start watching it again it makes you watch an ad and that is sad because people could have ads a few second after that and have to watch even more ads but again this is a great app and has a variety of animes

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.

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.

Still Too Dumb To Organize Their Shows. The most people complained about in the reviews are ads. And yet they have this pathetic company 4 or 5 stars. It is only because they are the major streaming service for anime. They have no competition yet. But I can’t wait for an alternative who can organize better than this crap. Here’s an example: S1 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu…. S1 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu…. S1 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu…. S1 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu…. S2 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu… S2 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu… S2 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu… S2 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu… S7 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu… S51 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu.. Now how is this logical at all?!?! You have to go to each and every line and wait for it to scroll sideways to know which language you want. And you would think S# means season, but it is not. It is all arbitrary! Because there is no season 51! They are just random numbers to show it’s a movie! Or you thought! It also indicates a language to that movie! And that is just 1 show! All other streaming services does not have this problem. And Crunchyroll has been around for how long? Nobody is addressing this because they put up with the fact that this service have the most anime in streaming platform and therefore is the go to. If there are alternatives they wouldn’t be so stagnant in improving. And if you keep giving them good rating, it will remain crap. Quit acting as if it deserves 4 or 5 stars. It doesn’t!

Premium Really?. Don't get me wrong I love the app! Crunchyroll has lots of Animes but not all are free and I get it but why do almost ALL the animes have to be premium just to watch it in dub or sub at least make some free, People in life don't like pay they like free. But I mean people who payed for premium have so much more benefits they get more animes more dubs more subs and merch but not everyone wants to spend money, because people need that money for food and clothes do you really think everyone would like spending money on an app because they want more dubs? I agree people that payed for premium should get some benefits but for the people who don't have premium like me probably spend most of their time on this app just trying to find an anime with a dub that isn't premium. I would love to spend moreb of my time on this app watching anime but instead I have to search the whole app until I can find a dub just to find out its premium and I don't want to pay. I really hope you read this and get my point to make more dubs free to watch but other than the premium thing this app is amazing.

Ads and sub and dub options. Ok so let’s start off by saying this is a good anime app I love it highly recommend it’s just that there is only subbed Naruto and boruto episode and I don’t like that and also the amount of adds I get but mainly the dubbed i been trying to fine dubbed anime apps sense December and now I thought I found one but when I downloaded it the only anime that was dubbed was fricking hunter x hunter😒and I was very mad but still the only thing that would makes this app better is an option that say dub or sub if h add this it will make me download this app pls reply and let me know if u will do this in the future because mind you the app is really good I just need dub or sub but back with the ads there is just too much and it’s annoying for example I was watching SUBBED Naruto and then a add came I was like oh an ad let me just finish so I watching episode but then it wasn’t loading so I reset the app and it was still loading so I tried for like almost an hour and it still didn’t work I even deleted it and downloaded it back AND IT STILL DIDNT WORK once again pls reply if your going to fix it in the future but that’s all

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

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....

Love the content, but missing quality of life features. Honestly you can’t beat the content. The issue is that app is barebones. It has gotten better and is an improvement over the website, but it’s really lacking. There are so many quality of life features available on other streaming services that would drastically improve the quality. Netflix comes to mind, with easy skip into and next episode options that make binging (something I do with finished anime series) a breeze. Netflix shows you the intro every time there is a new one, so you dont feel like you’re missing out, but gives you the option to skip to what you’re actually there for. I also enjoy the added controls on screen like the ability to pull open an episodes list while watching in case I want to skip around or past things like filler. Overall, the current app is a big improvement over what it was, but I would like to see it continue to be updated, especially as I watch more content on my phone than I do on my computer.

Way too many ads. I get it. It's a company trying to make money and so they decided to show ads. Small price to pay for not having to pay for a subscription, right? No... If you try to use chromecast with this app it will re show you ads. If you're trying to continue watching your anime it will show you enough ads to have been played throughout the entire show before it allows you to watch the last four minutes. And don't even think about restarting a show and having to rewind you will be stopped by ads and then when you've watched all five minutes worth of ads and finally get to the beginning of the show guess what.. MORE ADS. And then when you think you're good to start watching it'll play for like a minute and then an ad will pop up (and the ads might not even be in a language you understand) and your show will start...for about 2 seconds and then another ad will pop up and it will do that for a while until you sit through it with amazing patience or give up.

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.

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.

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?!
