Bugs (I suppose)
by plshelpme101 on 2020/09/23 23:18
So here’s the deal I don’t know if it’s the app or my phone so basically what’s happening is that ever since I updated my IPhone to IOS 14 whenever I have to watch an add after the first one when the s wins one loads it doesn’t play the add it just loads forever and ever so pls let me know what I should do.

Pretty garbage
Ref
by wendut on 2020/09/23 22:21
It doesn’t refresh on this version. And I wish I could look at what about the episode without it playing.
Language
by angie and bella on 2020/09/23 20:58
I love Crunchyroll and the different types of anime in it, I also love the fact that has anime only and nothing else, but unfortunately I really don’t like that I have to check if it’s dubbed in order to watch it in English, I would give it 5 stars but not being able to switch to what language you want is stopping me, but otherwise I absolutely love the app.
Love it but ads
by FathiFhied on 2020/09/23 20:34
I love the app a lot but there is a lot of ads and I I don’t wanna go premium ads are very annoying when I’m trying to watch so maybe try to put the ads on the end of the episode and every time I go on a anime I get like 6 ads and it’s very annoyingly
Frequently crashes or freezes
by aadjenndbf on 2020/09/23 19:49
Crunchyroll is a good anime streaming service if you remove all of its flaws, I’m fine with the ads, you have to get money from the people who don’t pay somehow. The people who don’t pay like me find it stupid to pay for a streaming service but it won’t stream properly, and example would be that I can’t rewind or skip without the entire app crashing or the anime freezing. Sometimes I don’t do anything and all of the sudden it starts being choppy and crash soon after. Other than these problems Crunchyroll is OK

by uigggfhfyhdgfyuguy on 2020/09/23 19:40
But there is a lot of ads But overall I think there’s a really good app
Just why is this a problem
by doggshittt on 2020/09/23 18:58
Just why, everything else works for me so why does it just start randomly loading for no reason my internet is fine and it’s not a problem with my phone either. Other times it’s just a black screen when the ads start to load. Don’t get me wrong I like the app it’s just this small problem that just makes it unwatchable. You need to fix your app cause the website works fine but I don’t always want to be on the computer to watch something. new problem you can’t exit the app for more than a minute while watching something and if you do it just keeps loading
Too many ads
by gamer guy named icy on 2020/09/23 18:56
Every episode is like 12 ads every five minutes it just keeps giving me ads. And sometimes when your finish 1/3 of the ads it just freezes and does nothing, it dose not even go to the next one until you go to home wait a few seconds and come back. Only sometimes they play all ads at once. The subtitles turn off sometimes.
Good but..

Improve
by marcell924 on 2020/09/23 15:52
It’s like you gotta pay for premium just for this app to work without problems, when I had the premium I had literally no problems watching anything I wanted to watched, now that I stopped paying for it I can’t even get videos to load without having to close and reopen the app sometimes, it buffers way more often than it did when I had the premium, the ads don’t even play all the time so then I gotta open and close the app all over again and it’s not my WiFi bc when I had the premium Everything was perfect now I don’t have it it’s like they basically doin this on purpose jus to make you wanna get it.
One complaint
by Known_as_Layla on 2020/09/23 15:08
I love crunchyroll, but I have one complaint. There needs to be a way to report an anime. I want to report "Why the Hell are you in Here, Sensei" (or something like that) because its literally grooming and pedophillia being normalized/looked over. Thank you.
so long to download
by coolgamer_andcool on 2020/09/23 14:51
mine is taking so long to download. I really wanted to watch but it’s it’s so long to download
App is not working it’s not my phone
by Lusvinnjj on 2020/09/23 12:37
This app is so trash make it better ever time I play a video it just sits there takes for every to load please fix this it’s not my phone my phone is brand new
Slow
by WolfEman1195 on 2020/09/23 06:04
I know it’s not my internet but when I go on Crunchyroll the app is so slow and buffers every 10 seconds I thought I saw a problem like this on Reddit as well
black screen?!
by hotttielikeamelodyinmyhead on 2020/09/23 05:41
THE APP IS AWESOME :) ... one mini problem though, when i try to play ep 11 of rent a girlfriend it doesn’t let me see it....
Commercials do not work
by Calvoney on 2020/09/23 04:53
Makes you rewatch commercial 6+ times occasionally and pauses getting to the actual anime. Absolute bs just to try and sell their premium membership or whatever.
Ads.
by tifftifftifftimesthree on 2020/09/23 03:04
It’s pathetic, I don't mind ad every once and a while, but I cant not have a add for at least 5 minutes. Which is pathetic of the company to push you far enough to try to get you to buy premium. I’m thinking about going to another app. I would t mind 1 small ad, but theres like 3 ads for your own app. Besides that the app is good.
Episode or season
by Dragon(Ngun) on 2020/09/23 02:48
Can you put all the episode or season I really want to watch all of the episode or season as fast as I can so that I don’t have to keep them in my watch list and wait till all the episode or season came.
How do you dub it ?
by Diana🥺🥺 on 2020/09/23 01:22
I don’t really like anything in a different language.. but that’s beside the question. How do you dub it . I’m looking like a fool here
Ads
by rjnoahjohnny on 2020/09/23 01:09
This is the best anime app to watch on but the thing is that I watch in this it just so many ads it goes on in the intro and outro even when you watch it just gets annoying like why don’t you put ads like in one video like I just start a episode and then you put a ad and another episode not like put a lot of ads in every episode it just very annoying I’m so close to deleting this app😒😒
Cr on Apple TV ! Since 2017
by Risa Chi on 2020/09/23 00:03
I have had constant troubles with Crunchyroll on Apple TV. It always says “An error occurred loading this content” anytime I try to watch ANY VIDEO on apple CR. I’m seeing people have been complaining as well online about this issue since 2017 as well !!! Everything else works fine for me. YouTube , Amazon prime , Netflix and Hulu! Only Cr DOESNT work !! Why aren’t these issues getting fixed??
Love it
by mkgm21 on 2020/09/22 23:58
I love all the variation of anime, but there is more than 1 person using Crunchyroll and our playlist of series it’s just messy, I would like if you could add more users in the same account
Great anime streaming platform!
by Polaxius on 2020/09/22 23:52
If Netflix only streamed anime and was freed, then it would be Crunchyroll. This app is fantastic! At first I was a bit annoyed at the advertisements. They often take ages to load and I have to relaunch the app for them to successfully load. However, after paying for Crunchyroll Premium (which, the cheapest option, is $7.99/month mind you,) I got almost instant load times and genuinely enjoyed the watching experience! So, in the end, if you’re either really patient or just getting into anime, then premium isn’t much worth it. If you’re a hardcore anime fan or really impatient, however, then Premium is 100% worth it. A definite 5 stars!
Trash
by Damian2065 on 2020/09/22 23:13
Ok the app is good it has all the anime I watch but the thing is there is to many ads,I was watching naruto shippuden and when I just finished an ad it gave me 2 more.Please put less ads and more people would actually get this app
It’s ok but the ads..
by aboomalacaca on 2020/09/22 21:50
So I wanted to watch mha but there’s too much ads, so really I forget everything, that’s what happens to me. A skip ads would help even if it costs money or no money, it would help A LOT.

I would give it a five stars but there is to many ads and I can’t even watch my anime in peace this app is kinda bad.
Crunchyroll as bad App
by bas,trash on 2020/09/22 16:07
Just downloaded Crunchyroll and I thought it was gonna be a good app but to me it’s not that good you can never change the subtitles correctly if you want to English or sometimes my family likes to watch anime with me and you never can watch it dubbed on any animals so this is why I am putting the stupid review because Crunchyroll is the stupidest app ev Jjjjjjjj
I keep having issues with the newest version
by Fiftyfourtwenty on 2020/09/22 14:58
I’ve never had a problem with Crunchyroll until the most recent updates (I’ve been a subscriber since day 1). Some episodes play and some don’t on iOS. It’s annoying I just wanna chill in bed and watch on my phone, it’s forcing me to watch the episodes I can’t watch on my phone on Chromecast, PC or MacBook.
Way too glitchy
by AriBow on 2020/09/22 14:11
Once the ads finish, the video glitches out and more ads start up. I don’t mind watching a few ads but I can barely get through a 20 minute episode with having to close and reopen the app over and over just to get it to load.
Glitches and ads
by Black_Panther2 on 2020/09/22 12:44
Great app when it comes to shows but if you exit the app while watching a show and open it back up, it will not play leading to you having to close the app and reopen it for to play. You will also have to watch another 3 ads
Loads forever
by cgthebomb on 2020/09/22 12:13
I have been loading an episode for an hour and its still frozen. It keeps staying at that scree.
So many ads
by ML 3ag1e on 2020/09/22 06:02
App is organized and everything but.. the ads. The ads are crazy, every 3 minutes 12 ads come out of nowhere. Please lower the ads.. I just wanna watch anime

The adds are wayyyy to long can you please make them like 20 or 30 seconds instead of like 5 minutes
😢😢😢
by romwe lol ok on 2020/09/22 04:13
I love the shows but its so slow and glitchy i restart the app and it still doesnt work i dont know what to do anymore honestly😞
Good app
by aften8 on 2020/09/22 02:44
I had a lot of fun in this app I learned my style of anime and what I liked I also really enjoyed watching all of the different kinds of anime I feel like there are anime’s on this app for every one although I would say some of the anime of this app is 12+ but that is only expected because in order for every one to find out there style there has to be different age groups of anime. One this I didn’t like about this app was the commercial . There where so many made it is just me but I feel like they should only have 3 commercials at max.
Teehee113
by littlecoolgirl on 2020/09/22 02:26
THERE IS SO MANY ADS I CANT EVEN WATCH A SINGLE EPISODE OF HUNTER X HUNTER WITHOUT AN AD POPPING UP CAN YOU DELETE THE FREAKING ADS
Where is the dubbed?
by Rese9978 on 2020/09/22 00:37
I have used the free trial to see if I would enjoy the app. However, be on here for about 10 minutes I have not seen a single dubbed anime. I only watch dubbed or English versions, so to continue with this app for me is pointless. If you like subbed well you’ll have good stuff to watch, but as for me there is nothing to watch that I enjoy in dubbed form.
I wish there were no ads TwT
by Hope Spence on 2020/09/22 00:05
I had this app for a while now but deleted it because its so much ads!! Im very poor (lol) rn so i dont have the money for it so im so sad that there are so much adssss!!
To many adds
by nya 453678920 on 2020/09/21 22:49
Honestly there is WAY to many adds you should try to make it to where there’s wayyyyy less I mean if your watching a really long episode you’ll basically spend all day watching it because of the ADDS all I’m saying is please lower the amount of adds😕
Please fix something with the ads
by 0erhaul on 2020/09/21 22:33
When I hit an ad checkpoint, I’m forced to keep watching the ads all over again, and it’s we’re you are not even able to watch the anime.
Stop with the 4 ads just have 2 UGH
by Dextercatlover on 2020/09/21 20:51
I think crunchyroll should be more like Netflix with no ads or at least 2 adds instead of 4 it’s annoying
William Afton👁👄👁
by May Toga on 2020/09/21 19:48
So I love the app since anime is there- I kinda love it but anyway the thing that is annoying me is that there’s to many ads and I would love if you would take out the ads since the ads are very annoying and also it would keep glitching so I have a another problem but I would say this app is good to watch!
Do not use
by JPC2005V on 2020/09/21 18:27
Use anything else. Crunchyroll is the worst """service""" ever made. Absolutely atrociously bad. Terrible quality, bad UI, bad everything. Not to mention it took my money without actually doing anything.

Pros and Cons
by nataIia7 on 2020/09/21 06:43
Amazing app, love it! But the amount of ads are insane, i’m watching HXH at the moment and the ads are adding like 10-15 extra minutes to the show. If the amount of ads weren’t so bad, i’d have nothing bad to say. Pros for the app though would it has a wide variety of shows which is super cool! As well as it has lots of seasons that Netflix and other apps don’t have! Worth the download but the ads have definitely gotta dial down
Needed
by redskyblood on 2020/09/21 05:28
Is there anyway for you guys to make a option about the color of the lyrics. Sometimes it hard to read because of the background have the same white color. If we can change the colors of the lyrics that be easy to read without have to press stop and look very close. Thank you for your hard work.
Add naruto
by Kid Sonic The Hog on 2020/09/21 05:22

Please fix 🌝
by koyo is angry on 2020/09/21 04:17
So I love anime and I love crunchyroll! Everything else about it is perfect. Except a few things. So we all know the continue watching thing where you can go back to the animes that you were watching, well when I finish an anime it doesn’t remove the show I was watching of the continue watch list which I feel is very disorganized. Another problem is the ads. I’m okay with a lot of the ads but it would be nice to have a timer of how many more seconds till I can go back to my show. Another problem with the ads is that whenever I touch my screen when there’s an ad is that it takes me straight to the advertiser on a new tab which I find annoying, so these 3 things I would love to be fixed and would make my and others experience better!
Great until
by Renjoyable on 2020/09/21 04:10
For some strange reason I can’t continue off where I stopped in an episode. I have 5ge network and great WiFi and the same problem persists. I have to restart the whole episode for it to start loading. When I try to Fast Forward to my original spot, it sometimes even crashes the app
It’s great! But just one issue...
by JaySZNjdbdhbx on 2020/09/21 04:04
This is a great app for streaming your favorite anime! But I have one problem... when I airplay from my phone the subtitles just stay on the phone with a black screen, and while playing the animation on the TV there are no subtitles. That’s the only problem I found with this app but otherwise it’s great. If you could do something about this bug it’ll be even better!

Every time an ad ends, the same ad plays again on loop. I end up closing and opening the app over and over again to get rid of this issue.

Poor Service for Members
by Havakrim on 2020/09/20 18:15
Love the app, and the look. However, when trying to watch a show it states “Cannot connect to Crunchyroll. Please try again.” When you do, it locks subtitles completely, with no option to turn them back on. You close out the video to try again, but this is a non-starter as it does it every time. Fix this and i will change to five star. Poor execution when charging people to not allow them to utilize what they are paying for.

by _alleeennnaaa on 2020/09/20 17:18

Coming Soon or Upcoming animes
by Aidragas on 2020/09/20 15:49
I think you should start working on getting a section on your app showing all upcoming animes on the next months at least. So you can give like a boost motivation to your subscribers. Even add a button for a reminder of the day a new anime releases.
Commercials and glitches

by .sweet.one. on 2020/09/20 08:15
Honestly, what is going on with this app? It used to be so good until about 2 days ago. I don’t know if it’s my WiFi or what but after about 5 minutes into a episode the screen goes black and you have to restart the whole thing. The subtitles also turn off when you do this making you have to fully close and reopen the app. It could just be my WiFi but after looking at reviews it looks like this app is having trouble for more people too. Please try and fix this.
Way too many ads
by crunchyrolltoomanyads on 2020/09/20 07:56
I know they need ads since the app is free .. but bro everytime i turn around it’s a 5 minutes ad of the same exact ad .. why is there an ad before the show and exactly right after the intro .. is there a way they can cut down the ad time .. like seriously
It won’t let me watch
by sup99999 on 2020/09/20 07:50
So got this app to watch anime right? Well when I first started I wanted to watch a movie but it said “sorry we can’t play the show please try again” and I did and it still didn’t work I don’t think it’s a good app but if you wanna try it then go ahead
could use a little work
by dhhwns on 2020/09/20 07:40
Dont get me wrong, crunchyroll is a good app.. But the ads on every episode is very annoying.on one episode i’ve at least gotten 15 ads. but besides that its a good app.

Over all Good
by CocoaPuprs112343 on 2020/09/19 23:39
This app is over all good but I’m finding that more often then not the ads cause major issues I don’t know if it’s just my phone, internet, or what but the ads often refuse to load or occasionally take the first frame of the ad, Freezes it, and continues playing the videos audio and not the ads’. Please take my review with a grain of salt because I cannot completely rule out that it is my phone or the Internet that is causing these issues but please at least consider it.
Still getting ads even after paying
by cgxfxyv on 2020/09/19 22:35
I’m paying for the memberships and I’m sill getting ads between every episode, ever time I pause I get an ad, and every time I skip forward or back it gives me an ad after it loads. I only got the membership so I don't have to watch any ads and there is no difference except instead of having 5 ads in a row I get 3 ads in a row.

Well when I was watching it’s keeps loading my WiFi was fine. It’s very annoying. And every time I tried to watch it kept loading forever like for 10 min. Can you fix that. Thanks for you for watching this.... Can you add this anime in? It’s called Seraph of the end. Can you put it in. Can you put Arifureta in Crunchyroll- Because you don’t have a lot of anime’s in there- I mean there is but can you put more anime in Crunchyroll please?

by 💕The Pink Princess💕 on 2020/09/19 13:03
I love Crunchyroll and I watch all my fave o rite anime’s on there but there are WAY to many adds. I can watch 5 minutes of 1 episode then get 6 adds in a row. You guys need to fix this.
I love the app but two things I don’t like
by GodlyGamer64 on 2020/09/19 11:46
I absolutely love the app and the anime you show, but I do not like how you try and make it like tv with the ads in the middle of the anime, and I also do not like how each ad showing has more than one ad in it and if you want me to be honest it’s a lame way to make money and I was tempted to delete the app cause of it. I lost interest in some of the anime because I couldn’t get a full understanding with a break in the middle.
Certain episodes not working
by Sammycat2005 on 2020/09/19 09:14
I just noticed something about the “Charger Girl Ju-den Chan” anime. On the episode list, two of the episodes from this anime seems like they would only show 2 minutes and when I select them, they don’t play at all. They are episodes 6 and 9. Is this data corrupted on Crunchyroll’s side?
These ads make the app broken
by Rudyehhshdhe on 2020/09/19 07:22
Yup every time an ad pop’s up the show doesn’t continue my screen just goes black.
Hmm
by kimansmith on 2020/09/19 07:08

Ads & Bugs
by curlyhead._josiah on 2020/09/19 04:31
Every episode I get at least 10 ads also there are tons of bugs, sometimes I can’t even watch anime because it keeps pausing.
Do not bother
by crunchyroll not good at all on 2020/09/19 04:12

Amazing app and quality overall but problem with the premium options
by prinncess unicorn on 2020/09/19 02:20
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.
App is good
by Zacharycnfnfn on 2020/09/19 00:42
Ok everyone is complaining in the reviews about ads rlly it’s free anime stop complaining also the app is amazing
Aye why is my Ad loading stuck
by ImAstroWorld on 2020/09/19 00:36
When I get done with and Ad it stays on a loading
Bruh the ads
by rachelvelasquez on 2020/09/18 22:38
A few months ago I always loved going on Crunchyroll online because if you were to get a stupid ad, then you could just press that glorious play button that would stop the ad as quick as possible but now, they updated the full screen and now If you were to press the play button when an ad plays, the stupid ad plays anyway! I hope we get the original full screen back so we don’t have to watch those useless and stupid ads anymore!
Videos keep breaking

Used to be an amazing app that worked really well and now none of the videos will even play. I click on an episode and the screen is just black it never starts.
Fix everything for the love of God
by Aspiring Dollar Store Manager on 2020/09/18 18:11
This isn’t a cheap streaming service, and it literally only half functions on EVERY platform. Everyone I know has the same problems. You can’t skip through videos a lot of the time without freezing it, everything is slow to load, it always logs me out on my Xbox etc. It’s absolutely rediculous. I’ve just about had it with Crunchyroll after being a paying customer for years now.
Laptop version
by mcdyoongi on 2020/09/18 15:43
I downloaded the app on my laptop to experience watching my shows on a bigger screen. But whenever I want to pause my show there’s no play/pause button or the skip forward/ backwards it disappears and never comes back. Please fix this issue for those who use the app on their laptops.
Subtitles on phone but not tv??
by golf nine on 2020/07/08 06:31
So I updated to the new update, 4.0, and I love the new look. I’m a premium member so I was able to watch everything with no problems. I’m in love with tower of god. I’ve watched over the past month and half since it’s been out ( covid attacked one piece, black clover, and boruto) and cant get enough. A little rushed but I have faith from what I’ve seen. My issue is that I’ve been watching tower of god through airplay and, as of the new update to 4.0, was wondering where the subtitles went on my tv. I messed around with the settings but couldn’t figure out why this was happening and couldn’t figure it out. I tried showing my dad My Hero Academia off the app yesterday and figured out where the subtitles went... they appeared on my phone in small text. I love your service and think it’s great but if this problem we’re to be solved It would be incredible. Everything else is solid, keep doing what you do🎉🎉🎉 Update: July 6: now none of my stuff works now. Do not cancel your premium rn. You will not get it back. I have been paying 7.99 since the start of July with no actual benefits. This is disgusting!!! Fix this Crunchyroll and then I’ll change my rating. Update: July 8: problem solved checked my email and paid at the website. Closed the Crunchyroll app then signed in. God of High Schools 🔥. Nothing more to say
Some pros and cons
by sk8rboy656 on 2019/07/05 17:05
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.
Ads
by That One Popular Review Guy on 2020/07/15 22:04
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.

Good program but has account issues
by Shinobi484 on 2020/05/23 03:51
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.
Review after 7 years
by Gee_Pineapple11 on 2020/01/25 15:02
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.
Just My opinion
by Boomman2020 on 2020/05/25 07:31
Ok The New version of this is cool and I like the new style but the old version is kind of better like it to cramped in most of the screens trying to click on one this and then click the other and also in you get a ad it plays like 5 ads in one or plays a ad and breaks everything and then have to reload the app but I know this is new and fix’s are coming but i like the old version if you can maybe have like a switch in the setting old version to the new one that be great but this version it just confusing and to organized and watching a episode or starting one up the room that you try to watch the show is :/ I don’t know what to say about that but hey I know that Covid-19. Going and you are trying to make the app more user friendly and it a hard time but the new version of this is ok but this is just my opinion and keep up the work. Edit:Well ok the ad are sensitive if you barely touch them it sends you to to a page to another page which is dumb because let say you accidentally leave a episode and there a ad well you can’t start the episode and the ad plays again and it glitches out also the ad doesn’t play so that episode is gone in your book and some episode are mix and are missing content that I don’t remember watching and so The whole show is broken but what I’m saying is Crunchyroll is broken and can barely be used
The ads are flippin’ crazy! 😤
by Wait of time.... on 2020/04/15 03:07
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!
needs some improvements!!
by marphobic on 2020/05/23 02:26
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.
Anime episodes refuse to load
by DaughterNature on 2020/04/11 00:38
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.
Ads
by Kitty_Nina101 on 2020/07/04 17:54
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.
Can’t even contact support
by Fieieiri on 2019/03/31 13:10
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.
Useless unless you pay
by Gbashi on 2019/03/01 22:03
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.
Too many adds ( owner read this you could get your sales up )
by YouShouldSponsorMe on 2018/09/19 04:28
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 )
Several errors and to many adds
by cas_jeager on 2019/07/21 21:22
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
Better, now that the new update was released
by Guy29373939584 on 2020/06/01 01:52
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, ;)
App with identity crisis
by Bob Kerstetter on 2017/10/22 23:57
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.
Uncontrollable ads!
by Llama&Alpacas on 2019/06/10 13:15
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.
It’s a good app for anime, with one issue
by PlumBoy5 on 2020/09/11 15:45
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
Bugs are annoying but anime is good
by ALonelyWalker on 2019/07/05 04:53
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
Not on the great side..
by Qinqin Xian on 2020/06/25 05:45
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.
Best anime app
by Sir Colt on 2019/09/13 03:03
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!
Great Concept with Too Many Bugs and Ads
by DraconikWarlock on 2019/10/09 04:03
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.
For real
by anastasia.reed on 2018/07/11 04:23
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.
No support?
by stevenleevan on 2017/10/08 23:08
This service has the potential to be really awesome. I tried the free trial and started watching right away and ended up keeping the subscription for premium going. There are some annoyances such as when I try to fast forward through intros It can sometimes take 3-5 minutes to even play the show again and it usually happens multiple times. My biggest issue though, and reason for 2 stars is that I was having an issue where my password was not working when trying to sign in on my other devices. When I tried to reset password, the link never came. I tried multiple times a day to reset and yes I checked spam and every folder but nothing. I reached out to customer service which got back to me quickly but they said that I have no account with them yet I’m being billed for premium. They escalated the issue but I never heard back and this was almost 2 weeks ago. I’ve sent another help request and haven’t heard back at all. For some reason now I’m able to sign in with my password to other devices but my premium account status is gone yet I’m still paying for the subscription. I’ve even tried unsubscribing and subscribing and issue persists. This has really become annoying and I’d love to give more stars and continue service if they could resolve my issue!
Requisit app for anime fans
by Darkfiresun on 2019/02/05 01:29
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.
Disappearing Anime
by Laizaaa on 2020/07/13 19:55
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.
It's miraculous
by jacobRcarroll on 2020/07/08 16:14
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.
problem with ad loading times
by Seattle lover 13 on 2020/01/30 07:34
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.
Love it but I do have just a few complaints...
by Saracastically on 2018/12/30 02:45
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.
It’s Okay
by Bill Cliton is here on 2020/06/22 03:16
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.
Yeah no I hate this app now!
by chimpmunk_posiden_zelda on 2019/04/06 03:27
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!
Bad interface
by evohflame on 2019/03/02 00:54
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.
Amazing, love it!
by DragonGamer_67 on 2019/07/21 06:04
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.
Pros & Cons
by JanessaLee on 2020/06/06 21:52
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.
My Thoughts.
by Frozen Scar Gaming on 2018/10/30 22:50
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. :-)
Ads
by Just-A-Human on 2018/05/19 00:52
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.
How hard is it to load an ad?!?!
by . Grimm gears on 2019/06/01 08:16
I completely understand that ads are a necessity and have absolutely 0 problem watching them. However, when you have an unskippable ad that takes up to 10 minutes to load (or longer I just refuse to wait longer then that,) that’s just rediculous. I shouldn’t have to close and reopen Crunchyroll every other time I hit a commercial break just so I don’t end up taking literally an hour to watch an episode of a show. On top of that, it’s absolutely killer that I have to take an ad break and watch all the ads that I would have watched by that point when I’m resuming an episode. A) I already watched ads to get that far, do you really need to make me watch a dozen ads just to finish the last 5 minutes of an episode? And (more importantly) B) if I have to close my app because your 30second ads take longer to load then the 30 minute episode, why would you make me watch more ads, basically raising my chance of getting stuck again, just to finish watching the episode? It’s just ridiculous that a 30 second ad would take 10 minutes to load, and it has nothing to do with my connection since the show I’m watching doesn’t need time to buffer or anything, it streams perfectly.
“Error” bug thing
by KawaiiPhantom on 2020/04/06 20:19
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.
Wait for episodes after they come out
by Sir Boxington williams on 2018/07/28 07:48
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.
Keep up the great services
by This game is ruined on 2019/09/02 05:59
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..
by LILLY THORNBURG on 2018/06/23 20:37
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....
About a year
by Blackeell on 2020/06/20 03:12
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.
The Ads are broken
by Rawerisnt on 2019/10/03 04:47
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.
Ads and glitches.
by Tokyolover57 on 2020/05/25 22:05
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.
Watch out for this app😡
by lovelylady10 on 2020/06/26 07:11
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😤
Can’t get into my account
by 666666ismyname on 2019/03/17 05:01
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?
New update is TERRIBLE
by MissMaeJean on 2020/06/21 21:39
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?!
Terrible !!!
by @tonie on 2017/10/15 14:03
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.

Bugs (I suppose)
by plshelpme101 on 2020/09/23 23:18
So here’s the deal I don’t know if it’s the app or my phone so basically what’s happening is that ever since I updated my IPhone to IOS 14 whenever I have to watch an add after the first one when the s wins one loads it doesn’t play the add it just loads forever and ever so pls let me know what I should do.

Pretty garbage
Ref
by wendut on 2020/09/23 22:21
It doesn’t refresh on this version. And I wish I could look at what about the episode without it playing.
Language
by angie and bella on 2020/09/23 20:58
I love Crunchyroll and the different types of anime in it, I also love the fact that has anime only and nothing else, but unfortunately I really don’t like that I have to check if it’s dubbed in order to watch it in English, I would give it 5 stars but not being able to switch to what language you want is stopping me, but otherwise I absolutely love the app.
Love it but ads
by FathiFhied on 2020/09/23 20:34
I love the app a lot but there is a lot of ads and I I don’t wanna go premium ads are very annoying when I’m trying to watch so maybe try to put the ads on the end of the episode and every time I go on a anime I get like 6 ads and it’s very annoyingly
Frequently crashes or freezes
by aadjenndbf on 2020/09/23 19:49
Crunchyroll is a good anime streaming service if you remove all of its flaws, I’m fine with the ads, you have to get money from the people who don’t pay somehow. The people who don’t pay like me find it stupid to pay for a streaming service but it won’t stream properly, and example would be that I can’t rewind or skip without the entire app crashing or the anime freezing. Sometimes I don’t do anything and all of the sudden it starts being choppy and crash soon after. Other than these problems Crunchyroll is OK
Jay
by uigggfhfyhdgfyuguy on 2020/09/23 19:40
But there is a lot of ads But overall I think there’s a really good app
Just why is this a problem
by doggshittt on 2020/09/23 18:58
Just why, everything else works for me so why does it just start randomly loading for no reason my internet is fine and it’s not a problem with my phone either. Other times it’s just a black screen when the ads start to load. Don’t get me wrong I like the app it’s just this small problem that just makes it unwatchable. You need to fix your app cause the website works fine but I don’t always want to be on the computer to watch something. new problem you can’t exit the app for more than a minute while watching something and if you do it just keeps loading
Too many ads
by gamer guy named icy on 2020/09/23 18:56
Every episode is like 12 ads every five minutes it just keeps giving me ads. And sometimes when your finish 1/3 of the ads it just freezes and does nothing, it dose not even go to the next one until you go to home wait a few seconds and come back. Only sometimes they play all ads at once. The subtitles turn off sometimes.
Good but..

Improve
by marcell924 on 2020/09/23 15:52
It’s like you gotta pay for premium just for this app to work without problems, when I had the premium I had literally no problems watching anything I wanted to watched, now that I stopped paying for it I can’t even get videos to load without having to close and reopen the app sometimes, it buffers way more often than it did when I had the premium, the ads don’t even play all the time so then I gotta open and close the app all over again and it’s not my WiFi bc when I had the premium Everything was perfect now I don’t have it it’s like they basically doin this on purpose jus to make you wanna get it.
One complaint
by Known_as_Layla on 2020/09/23 15:08
I love crunchyroll, but I have one complaint. There needs to be a way to report an anime. I want to report "Why the Hell are you in Here, Sensei" (or something like that) because its literally grooming and pedophillia being normalized/looked over. Thank you.
so long to download
by coolgamer_andcool on 2020/09/23 14:51
mine is taking so long to download. I really wanted to watch but it’s it’s so long to download
App is not working it’s not my phone
by Lusvinnjj on 2020/09/23 12:37
This app is so trash make it better ever time I play a video it just sits there takes for every to load please fix this it’s not my phone my phone is brand new
Slow
by WolfEman1195 on 2020/09/23 06:04
I know it’s not my internet but when I go on Crunchyroll the app is so slow and buffers every 10 seconds I thought I saw a problem like this on Reddit as well
black screen?!
by hotttielikeamelodyinmyhead on 2020/09/23 05:41
THE APP IS AWESOME :) ... one mini problem though, when i try to play ep 11 of rent a girlfriend it doesn’t let me see it....
Commercials do not work
by Calvoney on 2020/09/23 04:53
Makes you rewatch commercial 6+ times occasionally and pauses getting to the actual anime. Absolute bs just to try and sell their premium membership or whatever.
Ads.
by tifftifftifftimesthree on 2020/09/23 03:04
It’s pathetic, I don't mind ad every once and a while, but I cant not have a add for at least 5 minutes. Which is pathetic of the company to push you far enough to try to get you to buy premium. I’m thinking about going to another app. I would t mind 1 small ad, but theres like 3 ads for your own app. Besides that the app is good.
Episode or season
by Dragon(Ngun) on 2020/09/23 02:48
Can you put all the episode or season I really want to watch all of the episode or season as fast as I can so that I don’t have to keep them in my watch list and wait till all the episode or season came.
How do you dub it ?
by Diana🥺🥺 on 2020/09/23 01:22
I don’t really like anything in a different language.. but that’s beside the question. How do you dub it . I’m looking like a fool here
Ads
by rjnoahjohnny on 2020/09/23 01:09
This is the best anime app to watch on but the thing is that I watch in this it just so many ads it goes on in the intro and outro even when you watch it just gets annoying like why don’t you put ads like in one video like I just start a episode and then you put a ad and another episode not like put a lot of ads in every episode it just very annoying I’m so close to deleting this app😒😒
Cr on Apple TV ! Since 2017
by Risa Chi on 2020/09/23 00:03
I have had constant troubles with Crunchyroll on Apple TV. It always says “An error occurred loading this content” anytime I try to watch ANY VIDEO on apple CR. I’m seeing people have been complaining as well online about this issue since 2017 as well !!! Everything else works fine for me. YouTube , Amazon prime , Netflix and Hulu! Only Cr DOESNT work !! Why aren’t these issues getting fixed??
Love it
by mkgm21 on 2020/09/22 23:58
I love all the variation of anime, but there is more than 1 person using Crunchyroll and our playlist of series it’s just messy, I would like if you could add more users in the same account
Great anime streaming platform!
by Polaxius on 2020/09/22 23:52
If Netflix only streamed anime and was freed, then it would be Crunchyroll. This app is fantastic! At first I was a bit annoyed at the advertisements. They often take ages to load and I have to relaunch the app for them to successfully load. However, after paying for Crunchyroll Premium (which, the cheapest option, is $7.99/month mind you,) I got almost instant load times and genuinely enjoyed the watching experience! So, in the end, if you’re either really patient or just getting into anime, then premium isn’t much worth it. If you’re a hardcore anime fan or really impatient, however, then Premium is 100% worth it. A definite 5 stars!
Trash
by Damian2065 on 2020/09/22 23:13
Ok the app is good it has all the anime I watch but the thing is there is to many ads,I was watching naruto shippuden and when I just finished an ad it gave me 2 more.Please put less ads and more people would actually get this app
It’s ok but the ads..
by aboomalacaca on 2020/09/22 21:50
So I wanted to watch mha but there’s too much ads, so really I forget everything, that’s what happens to me. A skip ads would help even if it costs money or no money, it would help A LOT.

by jrndfbbdbf on 2020/09/22 17:25
I would give it a five stars but there is to many ads and I can’t even watch my anime in peace this app is kinda bad.
Crunchyroll as bad App
by bas,trash on 2020/09/22 16:07
Just downloaded Crunchyroll and I thought it was gonna be a good app but to me it’s not that good you can never change the subtitles correctly if you want to English or sometimes my family likes to watch anime with me and you never can watch it dubbed on any animals so this is why I am putting the stupid review because Crunchyroll is the stupidest app ev Jjjjjjjj
I keep having issues with the newest version
by Fiftyfourtwenty on 2020/09/22 14:58
I’ve never had a problem with Crunchyroll until the most recent updates (I’ve been a subscriber since day 1). Some episodes play and some don’t on iOS. It’s annoying I just wanna chill in bed and watch on my phone, it’s forcing me to watch the episodes I can’t watch on my phone on Chromecast, PC or MacBook.
Way too glitchy
by AriBow on 2020/09/22 14:11
Once the ads finish, the video glitches out and more ads start up. I don’t mind watching a few ads but I can barely get through a 20 minute episode with having to close and reopen the app over and over just to get it to load.
Glitches and ads
by Black_Panther2 on 2020/09/22 12:44
Great app when it comes to shows but if you exit the app while watching a show and open it back up, it will not play leading to you having to close the app and reopen it for to play. You will also have to watch another 3 ads
Loads forever
by cgthebomb on 2020/09/22 12:13
I have been loading an episode for an hour and its still frozen. It keeps staying at that scree.
So many ads
by ML 3ag1e on 2020/09/22 06:02
App is organized and everything but.. the ads. The ads are crazy, every 3 minutes 12 ads come out of nowhere. Please lower the ads.. I just wanna watch anime

😢😢😢
by romwe lol ok on 2020/09/22 04:13
I love the shows but its so slow and glitchy i restart the app and it still doesnt work i dont know what to do anymore honestly😞
Good app
by aften8 on 2020/09/22 02:44
I had a lot of fun in this app I learned my style of anime and what I liked I also really enjoyed watching all of the different kinds of anime I feel like there are anime’s on this app for every one although I would say some of the anime of this app is 12+ but that is only expected because in order for every one to find out there style there has to be different age groups of anime. One this I didn’t like about this app was the commercial . There where so many made it is just me but I feel like they should only have 3 commercials at max.
Teehee113
by littlecoolgirl on 2020/09/22 02:26
THERE IS SO MANY ADS I CANT EVEN WATCH A SINGLE EPISODE OF HUNTER X HUNTER WITHOUT AN AD POPPING UP CAN YOU DELETE THE FREAKING ADS
Where is the dubbed?
by Rese9978 on 2020/09/22 00:37
I have used the free trial to see if I would enjoy the app. However, be on here for about 10 minutes I have not seen a single dubbed anime. I only watch dubbed or English versions, so to continue with this app for me is pointless. If you like subbed well you’ll have good stuff to watch, but as for me there is nothing to watch that I enjoy in dubbed form.
I wish there were no ads TwT
by Hope Spence on 2020/09/22 00:05
I had this app for a while now but deleted it because its so much ads!! Im very poor (lol) rn so i dont have the money for it so im so sad that there are so much adssss!!
To many adds
by nya 453678920 on 2020/09/21 22:49
Honestly there is WAY to many adds you should try to make it to where there’s wayyyyy less I mean if your watching a really long episode you’ll basically spend all day watching it because of the ADDS all I’m saying is please lower the amount of adds😕
Please fix something with the ads
by 0erhaul on 2020/09/21 22:33
When I hit an ad checkpoint, I’m forced to keep watching the ads all over again, and it’s we’re you are not even able to watch the anime.
Stop with the 4 ads just have 2 UGH
by Dextercatlover on 2020/09/21 20:51
I think crunchyroll should be more like Netflix with no ads or at least 2 adds instead of 4 it’s annoying
William Afton👁👄👁
by May Toga on 2020/09/21 19:48
So I love the app since anime is there- I kinda love it but anyway the thing that is annoying me is that there’s to many ads and I would love if you would take out the ads since the ads are very annoying and also it would keep glitching so I have a another problem but I would say this app is good to watch!
Do not use
by JPC2005V on 2020/09/21 18:27
Use anything else. Crunchyroll is the worst """service""" ever made. Absolutely atrociously bad. Terrible quality, bad UI, bad everything. Not to mention it took my money without actually doing anything.

Pros and Cons
by nataIia7 on 2020/09/21 06:43
Amazing app, love it! But the amount of ads are insane, i’m watching HXH at the moment and the ads are adding like 10-15 extra minutes to the show. If the amount of ads weren’t so bad, i’d have nothing bad to say. Pros for the app though would it has a wide variety of shows which is super cool! As well as it has lots of seasons that Netflix and other apps don’t have! Worth the download but the ads have definitely gotta dial down
Needed
by redskyblood on 2020/09/21 05:28
Is there anyway for you guys to make a option about the color of the lyrics. Sometimes it hard to read because of the background have the same white color. If we can change the colors of the lyrics that be easy to read without have to press stop and look very close. Thank you for your hard work.
Add naruto

When i tried searching naruto i only got Naruto Uzumaki and Boruto,add normal Naruto
Please fix 🌝
by koyo is angry on 2020/09/21 04:17
So I love anime and I love crunchyroll! Everything else about it is perfect. Except a few things. So we all know the continue watching thing where you can go back to the animes that you were watching, well when I finish an anime it doesn’t remove the show I was watching of the continue watch list which I feel is very disorganized. Another problem is the ads. I’m okay with a lot of the ads but it would be nice to have a timer of how many more seconds till I can go back to my show. Another problem with the ads is that whenever I touch my screen when there’s an ad is that it takes me straight to the advertiser on a new tab which I find annoying, so these 3 things I would love to be fixed and would make my and others experience better!
Great until
by Renjoyable on 2020/09/21 04:10
For some strange reason I can’t continue off where I stopped in an episode. I have 5ge network and great WiFi and the same problem persists. I have to restart the whole episode for it to start loading. When I try to Fast Forward to my original spot, it sometimes even crashes the app
It’s great! But just one issue...
by JaySZNjdbdhbx on 2020/09/21 04:04
This is a great app for streaming your favorite anime! But I have one problem... when I airplay from my phone the subtitles just stay on the phone with a black screen, and while playing the animation on the TV there are no subtitles. That’s the only problem I found with this app but otherwise it’s great. If you could do something about this bug it’ll be even better!

Every time an ad ends, the same ad plays again on loop. I end up closing and opening the app over and over again to get rid of this issue.

Poor Service for Members
by Havakrim on 2020/09/20 18:15
Love the app, and the look. However, when trying to watch a show it states “Cannot connect to Crunchyroll. Please try again.” When you do, it locks subtitles completely, with no option to turn them back on. You close out the video to try again, but this is a non-starter as it does it every time. Fix this and i will change to five star. Poor execution when charging people to not allow them to utilize what they are paying for.

by _alleeennnaaa on 2020/09/20 17:18
So I really love Crunchyroll but there is one big problem it’s about the ads like why are you guys making the ads last longer it’s annoying please shorten the ads man
Coming Soon or Upcoming animes
by Aidragas on 2020/09/20 15:49
I think you should start working on getting a section on your app showing all upcoming animes on the next months at least. So you can give like a boost motivation to your subscribers. Even add a button for a reminder of the day a new anime releases.
Commercials and glitches
by Bmango on 2020/09/20 14:24

by .sweet.one. on 2020/09/20 08:15
Honestly, what is going on with this app? It used to be so good until about 2 days ago. I don’t know if it’s my WiFi or what but after about 5 minutes into a episode the screen goes black and you have to restart the whole thing. The subtitles also turn off when you do this making you have to fully close and reopen the app. It could just be my WiFi but after looking at reviews it looks like this app is having trouble for more people too. Please try and fix this.
Way too many ads
by crunchyrolltoomanyads on 2020/09/20 07:56
I know they need ads since the app is free .. but bro everytime i turn around it’s a 5 minutes ad of the same exact ad .. why is there an ad before the show and exactly right after the intro .. is there a way they can cut down the ad time .. like seriously
It won’t let me watch
by sup99999 on 2020/09/20 07:50
So got this app to watch anime right? Well when I first started I wanted to watch a movie but it said “sorry we can’t play the show please try again” and I did and it still didn’t work I don’t think it’s a good app but if you wanna try it then go ahead
could use a little work
by dhhwns on 2020/09/20 07:40
Dont get me wrong, crunchyroll is a good app.. But the ads on every episode is very annoying.on one episode i’ve at least gotten 15 ads. but besides that its a good app.
best anime streaming
by harrison. baustian on 2020/09/20 05:26

Over all Good
by CocoaPuprs112343 on 2020/09/19 23:39
This app is over all good but I’m finding that more often then not the ads cause major issues I don’t know if it’s just my phone, internet, or what but the ads often refuse to load or occasionally take the first frame of the ad, Freezes it, and continues playing the videos audio and not the ads’. Please take my review with a grain of salt because I cannot completely rule out that it is my phone or the Internet that is causing these issues but please at least consider it.
Still getting ads even after paying
by cgxfxyv on 2020/09/19 22:35
I’m paying for the memberships and I’m sill getting ads between every episode, ever time I pause I get an ad, and every time I skip forward or back it gives me an ad after it loads. I only got the membership so I don't have to watch any ads and there is no difference except instead of having 5 ads in a row I get 3 ads in a row.

Whoever made this app I just want to let u know that if u remove the ads I’ll give u a 5 star I swear

by vfutffuj on 2020/09/19 21:02
Well when I was watching it’s keeps loading my WiFi was fine. It’s very annoying. And every time I tried to watch it kept loading forever like for 10 min. Can you fix that. Thanks for you for watching this.... Can you add this anime in? It’s called Seraph of the end. Can you put it in. Can you put Arifureta in Crunchyroll- Because you don’t have a lot of anime’s in there- I mean there is but can you put more anime in Crunchyroll please?

The reason why I gave you four stars is because there’s to many ads
Some pros and some cons
by 💕The Pink Princess💕 on 2020/09/19 13:03
I love Crunchyroll and I watch all my fave o rite anime’s on there but there are WAY to many adds. I can watch 5 minutes of 1 episode then get 6 adds in a row. You guys need to fix this.
I love the app but two things I don’t like
by GodlyGamer64 on 2020/09/19 11:46
I absolutely love the app and the anime you show, but I do not like how you try and make it like tv with the ads in the middle of the anime, and I also do not like how each ad showing has more than one ad in it and if you want me to be honest it’s a lame way to make money and I was tempted to delete the app cause of it. I lost interest in some of the anime because I couldn’t get a full understanding with a break in the middle.
Certain episodes not working
by Sammycat2005 on 2020/09/19 09:14
I just noticed something about the “Charger Girl Ju-den Chan” anime. On the episode list, two of the episodes from this anime seems like they would only show 2 minutes and when I select them, they don’t play at all. They are episodes 6 and 9. Is this data corrupted on Crunchyroll’s side?
These ads make the app broken
by Rudyehhshdhe on 2020/09/19 07:22
Yup every time an ad pop’s up the show doesn’t continue my screen just goes black.
Hmm
by kimansmith on 2020/09/19 07:08
Would be better without ads but sure and I love my hero academia :>
Ads & Bugs
by curlyhead._josiah on 2020/09/19 04:31
Every episode I get at least 10 ads also there are tons of bugs, sometimes I can’t even watch anime because it keeps pausing.
Do not bother
by crunchyroll not good at all on 2020/09/19 04:12
Shows work for a few days then start tripping and not playing not worth the time and money
I love crunchy roll
by Cwatz808 on 2020/09/19 03:39
But, I really wish they included Japanese subtitles and fixed the ROKU app. It would be awesome if they added Japanese variety tv shows also! Thank you crunchy roll, y’all rock.

Amazing app and quality overall but problem with the premium options
by prinncess unicorn on 2020/09/19 02:20
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.
App is good
by Zacharycnfnfn on 2020/09/19 00:42
Ok everyone is complaining in the reviews about ads rlly it’s free anime stop complaining also the app is amazing
Aye why is my Ad loading stuck
by ImAstroWorld on 2020/09/19 00:36
When I get done with and Ad it stays on a loading
Bruh the ads
by rachelvelasquez on 2020/09/18 22:38
A few months ago I always loved going on Crunchyroll online because if you were to get a stupid ad, then you could just press that glorious play button that would stop the ad as quick as possible but now, they updated the full screen and now If you were to press the play button when an ad plays, the stupid ad plays anyway! I hope we get the original full screen back so we don’t have to watch those useless and stupid ads anymore!
Videos keep breaking
by -&8$; on 2020/09/18 20:01
Used to be an amazing app that worked really well and now none of the videos will even play. I click on an episode and the screen is just black it never starts.
Fix everything for the love of God
by Aspiring Dollar Store Manager on 2020/09/18 18:11
This isn’t a cheap streaming service, and it literally only half functions on EVERY platform. Everyone I know has the same problems. You can’t skip through videos a lot of the time without freezing it, everything is slow to load, it always logs me out on my Xbox etc. It’s absolutely rediculous. I’ve just about had it with Crunchyroll after being a paying customer for years now.
Laptop version
by mcdyoongi on 2020/09/18 15:43
I downloaded the app on my laptop to experience watching my shows on a bigger screen. But whenever I want to pause my show there’s no play/pause button or the skip forward/ backwards it disappears and never comes back. Please fix this issue for those who use the app on their laptops.
Subtitles on phone but not tv??
by golf nine on 2020/07/08 06:31
So I updated to the new update, 4.0, and I love the new look. I’m a premium member so I was able to watch everything with no problems. I’m in love with tower of god. I’ve watched over the past month and half since it’s been out ( covid attacked one piece, black clover, and boruto) and cant get enough. A little rushed but I have faith from what I’ve seen. My issue is that I’ve been watching tower of god through airplay and, as of the new update to 4.0, was wondering where the subtitles went on my tv. I messed around with the settings but couldn’t figure out why this was happening and couldn’t figure it out. I tried showing my dad My Hero Academia off the app yesterday and figured out where the subtitles went... they appeared on my phone in small text. I love your service and think it’s great but if this problem we’re to be solved It would be incredible. Everything else is solid, keep doing what you do🎉🎉🎉 Update: July 6: now none of my stuff works now. Do not cancel your premium rn. You will not get it back. I have been paying 7.99 since the start of July with no actual benefits. This is disgusting!!! Fix this Crunchyroll and then I’ll change my rating. Update: July 8: problem solved checked my email and paid at the website. Closed the Crunchyroll app then signed in. God of High Schools 🔥. Nothing more to say
Some pros and cons
by sk8rboy656 on 2019/07/05 17:05
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.
Ads
by That One Popular Review Guy on 2020/07/15 22:04
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.

Good program but has account issues
by Shinobi484 on 2020/05/23 03:51
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.
Review after 7 years
by Gee_Pineapple11 on 2020/01/25 15:02
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.
Just My opinion
by Boomman2020 on 2020/05/25 07:31
Ok The New version of this is cool and I like the new style but the old version is kind of better like it to cramped in most of the screens trying to click on one this and then click the other and also in you get a ad it plays like 5 ads in one or plays a ad and breaks everything and then have to reload the app but I know this is new and fix’s are coming but i like the old version if you can maybe have like a switch in the setting old version to the new one that be great but this version it just confusing and to organized and watching a episode or starting one up the room that you try to watch the show is :/ I don’t know what to say about that but hey I know that Covid-19. Going and you are trying to make the app more user friendly and it a hard time but the new version of this is ok but this is just my opinion and keep up the work. Edit:Well ok the ad are sensitive if you barely touch them it sends you to to a page to another page which is dumb because let say you accidentally leave a episode and there a ad well you can’t start the episode and the ad plays again and it glitches out also the ad doesn’t play so that episode is gone in your book and some episode are mix and are missing content that I don’t remember watching and so The whole show is broken but what I’m saying is Crunchyroll is broken and can barely be used
The ads are flippin’ crazy! 😤
by Wait of time.... on 2020/04/15 03:07
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!
needs some improvements!!
by marphobic on 2020/05/23 02:26
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.
Anime episodes refuse to load
by DaughterNature on 2020/04/11 00:38
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.
Ads
by Kitty_Nina101 on 2020/07/04 17:54
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.
Can’t even contact support
by Fieieiri on 2019/03/31 13:10
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.
Useless unless you pay
by Gbashi on 2019/03/01 22:03
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.
Too many adds ( owner read this you could get your sales up )
by YouShouldSponsorMe on 2018/09/19 04:28
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 )
Several errors and to many adds
by cas_jeager on 2019/07/21 21:22
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
Better, now that the new update was released
by Guy29373939584 on 2020/06/01 01:52
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, ;)
App with identity crisis
by Bob Kerstetter on 2017/10/22 23:57
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.
Uncontrollable ads!
by Llama&Alpacas on 2019/06/10 13:15
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.
It’s a good app for anime, with one issue
by PlumBoy5 on 2020/09/11 15:45
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
Bugs are annoying but anime is good
by ALonelyWalker on 2019/07/05 04:53
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
Not on the great side..
by Qinqin Xian on 2020/06/25 05:45
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.
Best anime app
by Sir Colt on 2019/09/13 03:03
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!
Great Concept with Too Many Bugs and Ads
by DraconikWarlock on 2019/10/09 04:03
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.
For real
by anastasia.reed on 2018/07/11 04:23
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.
No support?
by stevenleevan on 2017/10/08 23:08
This service has the potential to be really awesome. I tried the free trial and started watching right away and ended up keeping the subscription for premium going. There are some annoyances such as when I try to fast forward through intros It can sometimes take 3-5 minutes to even play the show again and it usually happens multiple times. My biggest issue though, and reason for 2 stars is that I was having an issue where my password was not working when trying to sign in on my other devices. When I tried to reset password, the link never came. I tried multiple times a day to reset and yes I checked spam and every folder but nothing. I reached out to customer service which got back to me quickly but they said that I have no account with them yet I’m being billed for premium. They escalated the issue but I never heard back and this was almost 2 weeks ago. I’ve sent another help request and haven’t heard back at all. For some reason now I’m able to sign in with my password to other devices but my premium account status is gone yet I’m still paying for the subscription. I’ve even tried unsubscribing and subscribing and issue persists. This has really become annoying and I’d love to give more stars and continue service if they could resolve my issue!
Requisit app for anime fans
by Darkfiresun on 2019/02/05 01:29
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.
Disappearing Anime
by Laizaaa on 2020/07/13 19:55
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.
It's miraculous
by jacobRcarroll on 2020/07/08 16:14
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.
problem with ad loading times
by Seattle lover 13 on 2020/01/30 07:34
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.
Love it but I do have just a few complaints...
by Saracastically on 2018/12/30 02:45
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.
It’s Okay
by Bill Cliton is here on 2020/06/22 03:16
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.
Yeah no I hate this app now!
by chimpmunk_posiden_zelda on 2019/04/06 03:27
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!
Bad interface
by evohflame on 2019/03/02 00:54
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.
Amazing, love it!
by DragonGamer_67 on 2019/07/21 06:04
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.
Pros & Cons
by JanessaLee on 2020/06/06 21:52
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.
My Thoughts.
by Frozen Scar Gaming on 2018/10/30 22:50
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. :-)
Ads
by Just-A-Human on 2018/05/19 00:52
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.
How hard is it to load an ad?!?!
by . Grimm gears on 2019/06/01 08:16
I completely understand that ads are a necessity and have absolutely 0 problem watching them. However, when you have an unskippable ad that takes up to 10 minutes to load (or longer I just refuse to wait longer then that,) that’s just rediculous. I shouldn’t have to close and reopen Crunchyroll every other time I hit a commercial break just so I don’t end up taking literally an hour to watch an episode of a show. On top of that, it’s absolutely killer that I have to take an ad break and watch all the ads that I would have watched by that point when I’m resuming an episode. A) I already watched ads to get that far, do you really need to make me watch a dozen ads just to finish the last 5 minutes of an episode? And (more importantly) B) if I have to close my app because your 30second ads take longer to load then the 30 minute episode, why would you make me watch more ads, basically raising my chance of getting stuck again, just to finish watching the episode? It’s just ridiculous that a 30 second ad would take 10 minutes to load, and it has nothing to do with my connection since the show I’m watching doesn’t need time to buffer or anything, it streams perfectly.
“Error” bug thing
by KawaiiPhantom on 2020/04/06 20:19
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.
Wait for episodes after they come out
by Sir Boxington williams on 2018/07/28 07:48
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.
Keep up the great services
by This game is ruined on 2019/09/02 05:59
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..
by LILLY THORNBURG on 2018/06/23 20:37
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....
About a year
by Blackeell on 2020/06/20 03:12
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.
The Ads are broken
by Rawerisnt on 2019/10/03 04:47
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.
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.
Watch out for this app😡
by lovelylady10 on 2020/06/26 07:11
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😤
Can’t get into my account
by 666666ismyname on 2019/03/17 05:01
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?
New update is TERRIBLE
by MissMaeJean on 2020/06/21 21:39
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?!
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.
