    The new TV app logs you out all the time, my history only appears half the time and there are a ton of bugs (anime won't scroll to next the episode, you can't watch the newest episode even if your premium but only on certain animes, some of the suggested anime bars can't be selected...) The new Crunchyroll is a nightmare to deal with.

    I've noticed some issues after I updated to v2.0.0 in my Android TV (Beyond TV). All images are stretched and nothing happens when I click in Enter/Login button. It works on my smartphone. I opened a ticket with these details and I received an instruction to try to reset my password. Really?

  3. guest-avatar

    I was very happy to watch cruncyroll app on my Android TV but when I updated this new version the loading takes so much time but after that my video does not start and I am really regretfully to this new version of app. In the old version a girl appeared first and in new version just a app logo appears. It is happening around 2 days ago on my Android TV and I am not even able to watch episodes because that even dont start after so much of taking time. Please help me as fast as possible.

    After my Android TV updated to the new app, load times are pitiful, I just want to see what's recently released, and what's in my queue. Don't compete with Hulu or Netflix for bad UI design. Thanks.

  5. guest-avatar

    App has a hard time registering that I've watched an episode. I need to go on the website itself and click at the last minute and press next for it to register. Real shame.

  6. guest-avatar

    The updated Android tv app is great, but Sony TV doesn't recognize it's running and goes into screen saver even when I'm watching the app. I have to replay the episode every 5 min.

  7. guest-avatar

    I have a premium account and still getting ad updates they did get in contact and help and i don't have a problem

    I loved this app before i updated it i was watching season 4 of an anime but when i updated it season 4-6 dissapeared

  9. guest-avatar

    The app offers a great variety of titles, including a nice range of very popular anime. The subtitles in PT-BR are mostly accurate and well synchd. However, the performance of the PC app is shabby and leaves much to be desired. There isn't an option to skip the intros/openings, which is really annoying. Also, simple commands such as spacebar to pause and arrows to rewind or fast forward don't work, which makes it hard to pause or quickly go back whenever I miss something or don't have time to read everything. Apparently the app isn't available for LG TV, which is a pitty too.

  10. guest-avatar

    It's a great app, in my opinion. The only thing that holds me back from it being a 5 is the number of options it doesn't have. For example: if they have dubbed, it's in a separate list on the Videos screen, versus being a selectable option, like Netflix does. Crunchyroll's app has great going for it, just a lot of things they could improve upon, since competitors have done this and better. I still love Crunchyroll though, I just think there's a lot to add and improve upon

  11. guest-avatar

    Great variety. The ads can get repetitive though. Sometimes the exact same ad plays five times in a row, but other than that it's the best app for anime. I appreciate the fact that the ads are able to pay the creators instead of pirating the content. Great app, great company, great community. I want to give five stars, but the ad system could maybe use some updating?

    The app is extremely buggy and performs poorly. Are you trying to skip ahead 10 seconds? Prepare for a minute of buffering. It keeps freezing, buffering, and crashing every minute or so. I'm not really complaining about there being ads since it is a free app, but goddamn does that just add to the time you have to keep waiting for your video to load, in some cases it plays the same ad twice. Unless you have a really high end device, I personally do not recommend this app.

  13. guest-avatar

    It's a good service, with lots of good Anime but the app is pretty bad. It crashes all the time. If it plays more than one episode the time line often freezes, so you can't pause or skip forward/back. When going back into a title you can either be an episode ahead or a few back. If you're casting most the time you lose control of it and need to close the app and recast. If this could be fixed it would be great but a bit head wrecking at the minute.

  14. guest-avatar

    The buffer is bad. Like, really bad. Sometimes it's okay, but other times I literally can't go three minutes without it buffering. And this isn't a problem on my end, because I have great connection, this doesn't happen with any other application, and almost every other user has complained about the exact same thing. I really don't know why the buffering is so bad. It might be due to other people using the wifi since it calms down at night when no one else is awake, but I'm not sure. There's also an issue where the screen will freeze but the audio will rewind and then catch up to the current frame before the video continues, but then the video stutters and skips a few frames and sometimes it just stops completely. I can't imagine how horrendous this would be with the ads, which are apparently so copious that the app is unusable, though I wouldn't know since I'm using the free trial for premium currently. As for the pros, the layout is very nice and for the most part the HD quality you get with premium is reliable (I suggest getting premium if you plan on using this long-term, the app is easier to use with it). Navigation is very easy and the history function works well. Really, my only complaint here is the buffering and freezing. If you fixed that (and, I guess, maybe chilled out with the ads, but again I can't comment on that since I have premium) then this app would be pretty much perfect.

  15. guest-avatar

    I like this app. I get to tons of good anime. It would be a five stars for me if there weren't so many ads. It's a little overkill with ads. I can't even get through some of the ads because the ads pause and my WiFi is perfectly fine. Then, sometimes it takes even more time to load the anime. Some of the videos work fine and the ads go straight through without a problem but some are just horrendous. I have to wait for an ad to get done loading then wait for it to load the rest of it. Please fix!

  16. guest-avatar

    Can be extremely frustrating to watch. The app often bugs out causing the video to continuously load, even after the app has been closed and reopened numerous times. Its annoying because, for some reason, the website wont allow mobile streaming on my device, so I cant watch it on the app or on the website. I will have periods where this won't happen and I can watch fine. But then this will happen, and the fact that resetting the app doesnt help is awful.

    it is deeply saddening that i have to leave this review, but it is my hope that doing so means hopefully the issue will be resolved. i am a premium user, however, the videos still buffer, freeze, and have moments where they'll freeze but backtrack on audio and you're stuck looking at the same frame while listening to audio from a scene prior. this in turn has greatly impacted on my viewing and in turn makes me regret becoming a premium user, as i don't feel i'm getting value for money.

  18. guest-avatar

    I know it's for free and I'm also really glad to be able to watch Anime for free and legal, but there are way too much ads. There are like 10 long ads in one episode, it's really annoying. And there aren't that much Animes to watch, what I actually understand since it's for free and they get most of the money from the ads. Anyways, it's a good app for broken weebs who want to watch some animes.

  19. guest-avatar

    It's good. There is this show that I've always wanted to watch, lol. It's in a different language, but they have English subtitles. There are commercials in the middle of what ur trying to watch. It also tells u if u want to restart or resume something that u r watching. The problem I've had with the commercials is that sometimes they would play, but then stop and freeze, and I would have to go out and them back in.

  20. guest-avatar

    Doesn't stay in sync with what is casting. The progress tracker for what is playing doesn't reset when you go to the next episode. Trying to go to the next episode often doesn't work and requires closing the app and "recasting". When it does work, it often didn't load the next episode so i have to restart again, recast then I have to click the cast button to see what is playing then click on that. This app needs a lot more attention than it's been given. No buffering issue cause I'm premium? Idk

    It won't even let me sign up... It keep saying that I have the wrong email address or password but I have checked and it was perfect please check this problem out... Edit: I created a new Google account and used it to sign up, luckily it worked. The video quality is pretty good but there are way to many adverts. I really like this app and would love to use it more often but the amount of ads have made my use kissanime more. Please use less ads.

  22. guest-avatar

    I don't have a problem with ads, I pay for the premium package. The problem is the apps stability on my phone and on the fire stick...It is constantly buffering and I'm having to restart the app over and over again. I love the selection and I get the amount of anime shows that I pay for, but the stability is making me reconsider paying monthly. If I want the quality that the app provides, I can go to spammy websites

  23. guest-avatar

    I do admit that this app has a lot of great, free content on it. However, the problem I had was the ads. Normally, I would be okay with watching ads. I'm a patient person. But this app is really annoying. Everytime I enter the episode, an ad pops up, and as soon as the opening ends, there's an ad. And most of the time, the ads would freeze up, so I can't watch the episode. I have to log out and log back in again only for another ad to appear and freeze again. It's frustrating!

  24. guest-avatar

    I bought premium for the third time and I had a very poor experience. What happened was I bought the membership and it kept on saying "try 14 day free trial." I looked on google play and it said spent the 10 dollars. Whenever I clicked on a premium exclusive anime, it would tell me to buy a membership. However, if I tried to I could only buy it for next month.

  25. guest-avatar

    Crunchyroll has one of the best selections of shows. My issue with it is the horrible UI and bad video player. Ive had numerous issues such as buffering for minutes, shows restarting from the beginning in the middle of it, subtitles just sometimes not showing up, and much more with the video player. Sometimes I click on a season in a show and it won't go to the season I clicked thus not letting me watch where I was at. Cant recommend, especially the premium if I cant even watch half the time.

    I've been using crunchyroll for a really long time and I'm also a paying user. I'm grateful theres so much content available but my issue is with the app itself. There is so much buffering through out the videos and I know that it isnt my internet since I'm able to use other streaming platforms with ease. There a definite need for an update.

  27. guest-avatar

    Marshall Baldwin


    It's a good app when it works. It goes through spurts of no issues and then a constant stream of buffers and crashes. I've contacted Crunchyroll support multiple times but I figure an update would do it some good. If the buffers and other various issues were resolved it'd be a 5 out of 5, but until then, the most I can give it is a generous 3 out of 5.

  28. guest-avatar

    Overall, they have a great selection, but sometimes it has to buffer so much that i almost feel like im watching stop motion. If they added a video quality selector they would definitely be higher. As for the ads, i almost feel like im watching live tv, but i do understand thats where their money comes from, so i can deal with that. Just wish their ads at least ran better, its even worse than the anime itself, sometimes never loading for upwards of 10-15 mins

  29. guest-avatar

    Many ads, which wouldn't be as bad as it is if the ads actually loaded. No other service has the problem Crunchyroll has, where the ads regularly take a long time to load. Also, this is an anime streaming platform largely used in the US...with almost no english dubs. Even for popular shows that have them. Also wouldn't be as bad if it was just Japanese, but there are even Spanish French, German etc. dubs yet no English ones. This app is unbelievably backwards.

  30. guest-avatar

    Its a good app, I found anime on there that I couldn't find anywhere else but... There are to many adds, I mean like two is a pretty good ammount at each time but about five? I don't really think its necessary, it ruins the whole purpose of even watching it if you don't have the premium feature. It ruins the whole thing, but I still go to this app to watch my anime, so four out of five stars

  31. guest-avatar

    I love the Crunchyroll services and anime they bring in.. BUT THE INTERFACE ON THE APP IS TERRIBLE. Inconsistent is the best word to describe it. Nothing is streamlined and trying to cast at times is a drag. Crunchy on the desktop is fine but I personally prefer watching on my phone. I've been watching some anime that Crunchy has on the Funimation app. That's how bad it has been. Especially, considering I've been a premium member since I've used Crunchy, nothing has changed.

  32. guest-avatar

    Before I begin I DON'T want a reply from a bot. The app seems to have good shows on it. But my issue is that I can't find one show in English. I'm not sure if im doing something wrong or if you just don't have the English dubs. I know that you can get these shows in English because I've seen them on things like Funimation and Netflix. I would like a actual reply wich os not from a bot please.

    I first had on my phone, it was loading very slowly and the picture would stop. Now finally got it back to watch more shows I haven't watch. Plus this is a while I had the app on my phone. Still same issues. Picture and volume is great tho. But the lagging is still bad. Still love all the other animes and manga. So I kinda wanna rate as a 2.5 than a three.

  34. guest-avatar

    XxCrafting GamerZxX


    It's the best anime app I've seen so far, the problem is with the ads. I understand since I don't have the membership I will see ads, but when there's 6 ads in a row with them being the same one 3 or 4 times and then some ads just freeze and won't let me continue, so then I have to restart the app and watch all the other 5 ads all over again. Like I get you need to make money that's why there's a membership but at least give the non members a break like make it just like 2 or 3 ads not 5 to 6

  35. guest-avatar

    Now I'm having issues with loading a video. The first couple of days of me using this app everything was fine and fast I didn't mind the ads at all but problems came about 2 days ago all of a sudden I'm seeing video failed to load and I have to close the whole app to get back the the show I was watching this also happens when i finish watching some ads and the same pop up would come and say video failed to load. I'm starting to get very annoyed by this please let me know what is the problem

  36. guest-avatar

    The video get stuck all the time and it makes the shows unwatchable. You should at least allow the shows to be downloadable, like Netflix. That wait I can wait until it finish to be downloaded on the phone and watch it without any interruptions. Please make this possible. I want to contribute with the anime creators paying the subscription but this situation makes it difficult to bear it. Please don't tell me to create a ticket by my own, you are supposed to recollect the feedback here

  37. guest-avatar

    I have to say, its a good streaming app, but there are WAY to many adds. I've had Crunchyroll for about two months now, and I know you can pay $7.99 for no adds, but for some animes it depends on how many adds. For example, Yuri!!! On Ice doesn't have many adds, but then you look at My Hero Academia and there are avpot of add breaks that take up to 10 minutes. If you get this app I really would recommend buying the premium member thing, cause its truly annoying.

  38. guest-avatar

    It would be a 5 star review but technical issues hold the app back. I watch crunchyroll on my PS4 or PC regularly with no issue and love it, the selection is excellent and well worth the subscription. However, this app is not good. Constant playback issues and I find myself spending more time fighting to get an episode to load than actually watching it. 5 stars for crunchyroll, 1 star for this app. Split the difference to 3 stars. For sure will be a 5 star review when these issues get fixed :)

  39. guest-avatar

    Playback is fine, but currently fighting an ongoing issue where the entire catalogue of shows is reduced to 6 Crunchyroll productions. App acts like no other shows exist, despite me having had 20+ shows added to my watchlist. Only fix is to download a VPN app, connect to VPN, open Crunchyroll then select the show. After it loads, disconnect from VPN. I gotta do this each time, which is annoying. I've tried all the troubleshooting steps listed on the site, no luck. Hopefully they fix this soon.

  40. guest-avatar

    there's a lot to fix on the app while videos takes a lot of time to start (compared with other apps as amazon, netflix, hbo on the same device/internet connection). the cast option sucks, next videos doesn't plays after the last one ends the 10 secs option doesn't work properly, and also the cast crashes after you play a couple episodes. please take care of your customers.

  41. guest-avatar

    So, I'm not saying this to sound like a jerk, but... I started with the 2 week free subscription, I'm still within that period and I have already watched all, *ALL* the English dubs offered, even the ones that don't appeal to me. I don't understand Japanese and don't have the patience to keep pausing just to read dialogue, I respect those that do but it's just not me... I guess I'll be cancelling and taking my business elsewhere, a shame too since I actually like the program format of the app.

  42. guest-avatar

    There's no way to check how many or how long commercials are like Hulu or YouTube. Rating one star because there's no audio adjustment between commercials so one might be really quiet and another one right after could be very loud and it has caused me to rip my headphones out from how loud they can be. VERY unpleasant, it has really hurt my ears a few times. Changed to two stars because there's lots of content that I couldn't find elsewhere.

  43. guest-avatar

    good content. terrible app and interface. I can't get into a show without the app crashing, disconnecting, or otherwise screwing up. ads lock you into the screen, and theres no watch later or any sort of attempt to save what ive been watching. crunchyroll, you need to get your mobile team together. I wish I could rate this higher but everything about this app feels like im fighting through the interface to watch what I want

  44. guest-avatar

    Great. Except, every so often it wipes your entire list and acts like you never existed in the first place. To verify it wasnt memory issues, I set up logins for every email I've ever had. They are all empty with no watch or billing history. So, one is definitely wrong. They've also moved their billing history to another site. All of which show no history for the last 9 years.

  45. guest-avatar

    If I told anyone that this was a polished app, I'd be joking. Not only is this the only streaming app on my phone where I spend more time looking at a yellow swirl than actually watching the show, but even the UI itself is annoyingly bugged, like I tried to resume my progress on JoJo on here, but when I tried to navigate to part 4 it froze the app every time (this also happened with other shows) and I had to reinstall the app several times until I could view different parts, among other issues.

  46. guest-avatar

    Awful player, the worst I've ever seen. Unless your WiFi is top quality, trying to watch anything is impossible. Buffering (that you can't pause and wait for cuz it just stops loading when paused), visual to audio desyncing and endless disconnections. Having to pay for something so low quality is utterly disgraceful. Youtube, netflix, amazon, all perfect but crunchyroll is the black sheep in that it just doesn't work if the connection is anything but flawless.

  47. guest-avatar

    So, I loved the app to the point where I got premium, the only two things I hated was the fact that before I got primium, there was a half an hour of ads every, single. ep. on top of that, when I got primium, some of the anime I was looking forward to watch is no working completly (premium ep, or the ones with crowns by the title) saying that my devise isn't compatible with the feature, even though I can watch other non-premium ep with a breeze... Overall, Ther eare better aps, unless you fix it

  48. guest-avatar

    It's a really good platform to watch anime! There's a good variety of them and it's easy to keep track of what you watch and what you want to watch. It's easy to use so when I first downloaded it I didn't need any instructions! The one problem I have is the number of ads, I get you need them to earn money but they're just alot. I personally have no problem but if it were just 2 ads in the beginning end and middle you would probably get a much higher rating.

  49. guest-avatar

    This is one of the worst anime apps I've ever used. The most annoying thing is the stupid ads before, in-between and after the anime . Then when you're watching an anime,the video stops playing and the audio continues, then I have to keep going back 10s back inorder to see the video. This is a very bad issue that needs to be fixed. But I commend them for the quality of their interface and it's free

  50. guest-avatar

    I've had the app for all of 10 minutes. I passed on the free trail with no ads and was hit with an ad before the video and 2 ads at 2:15 so I said alright I'll do the free trail. Since then I've had it say there was a problem playing the video 3 times and I'm not even 5 minutes into the first episode of Jojo. Thats unacceptable.

    This app is hot garbage. The UI is tedious and frustrating to navigate. On top of that the video player is constantly freezing every ten seconds for more than a minute at a time. Its taken me well over an hour just to watch a 20 minute episode. How can a service like crunchyroll thats been around for as long as Netflix be so crappy?

  52. guest-avatar

    hoo boy. i want to like this app but the amount of issues that we have to deal with, just to try to enjoy watching a show is way too much. unfortunately it's the only app I can use for anime without feeling guilty - so I will continue to use it... also, everyone here has the same issues. yet there is still some dude with his copy paste response going around asking people to fill out a bug report. i guess to show that they "care". there are plenty of complaints here. just read them.

  53. guest-avatar

    So many issues trying to load a video and keep it playing. Won't stay connected with many different anime. I've check my connections countless times. Nothing wrong with my connections. I've Uninstaller and reinstalled,, cleared my settings and I've even downloaded a recommended dns from crunchyroll and still have had issues with playback and buffering. This has plagued me for months. I'm about to drop my subscription.

  54. guest-avatar

    Just got the free trial on my computer, normally use netflix but they didn't have all the seasons of what I was watching. Streaming crunchyroll on the computer, its noticeably worse at buffering than netflix, but still tolerable. The phone version however, not to be too harsh, is trash. I go about 1-3 minutes before it buffers for infinity, I either need to rewind and hope it figures itself out (takes 3-5 minutes) or just restart the app entirely. 1-3 minutes after, it buffers again, repeat.

    In term of access to free service the ads are slightly excessive given that there are at least three in a 25 min episode, knowing the customer will likely binge watch several in one sitting this is a lot. There is a wide selection of new anime however there is a notable lack of some content. Example: FMA film present but none of the series', Sailor Moon crystal but no other, new Fruits Basket not old. If you are looking for a host for some of your old favs this is not necessarily the site.

    Besides the fact that most of the anime is in hd quality, you easily run into countless errors when watching an episode. These errors for me personally happen way to constantly and have been going on since the first time I downloaded Crunchyroll 2 years ago. If you have a computer, definitely use the Crunchyroll website as you run into less problems and you overall have a better experience. I hope you guys fix these errors as they are making this app less enjoyable for me and countless others.

    Hi, been a premier user for many years now and have no complaints about how the app runs. One thing I have noticed is on the application I am unable to change the language settings of the sutitles as they are always in default in English. I use the app to stream to my TV and most of my household dont read english and it sucks that we cant watch any shows together. Im using a note 10+ with the latest version of crunchyroll. Appreciate if feasible to add this feature for mobile!

  58. guest-avatar

    Constantly buffering through episodes. Sometimes the autoplay doesn't work. Even when an episode is over, sometimes you can't get to the next episode because it's greyed out. Please work on this app because I like watching a lot of anime but sometimes I don't bother because it's more trouble than it's worth. Been a premium member for years but idk now...there are better apps that have good anime 🤷‍♀️

  59. guest-avatar



    I love the fact I can watch my animes and stuff. I was being patient because every time there was an ad it would keep pausing and pausing. Now I can't even watch what I'm trying to watch because it won't play the episode, but it will play the ad. Why won't it play the episode but it will play the ads? I even tried restarting my phone but still didn't work. I also connected to WiFi, still didn't work.

  60. guest-avatar

    Good variety of series and good visual and audio but is utterly useless without some decent WiFi. If you have 2 people on the same network it will take about 30 mins to watch 5 minutes of a video because it keeps f******g stopping. If this can be changed in any way to give a more stable viewing it would definitely be a 5 star app. But at the moment I am getting unreasonably angry with this app and will probably start to look for an alternative.

    I sign up for crunchyroll about once a year, for the past 8 years. And it is always the same problems. Glitchy ads that repeat themselves multiple times in a row when you have their free version. And once you pay, the show glitches. Also, constantly buffers when using chromecast and doesn't sync properly with the chromecast.

    I dont really like this for two big reasons 1. The app (for naruto) does not come in a dubbed version. 2. In between episodes it will tale 10-30 seconds to load up a bunch of other anime adverts which is really annoying This also happens more than once. Overall this is annoying and i dont have any other anime websites to turn to. Please try and get this fixed really annoying.

  63. guest-avatar

    Great and easily used. One problem I'm having is that I can't find all the animes when I search for them. I don't have premium but it would be nice to find the anime I want to watch and see if I can watch it. I don't really have the ability to get premium right now although I imagine most things appear when you get it.Also when I try the website on google it won't play,load or tell me that I can't play a certain anime when I click on start watching.Though I am on mobile it should still tell me.

    I downloaded this app to watch anime and support the industry, as such I have no problem with the amount of ads in the episodes. However, after watching 3 episodes, each with 13 ads apiece. I am tired of 9-10 of those ads, being the same commercial telling me to try a non tobacco nicotine alternative. Ads aren't the problem, your selection is and it makes the experience trash.

    This app has connection problems. The app crashed on me three times today, and I thought it was my internet that was struggling. But I tried Netlflix and Prime and they work fine. This app is not stable. They need to fine tune this app as it doesn't hold a candle to the bigger streaming apps. 04/19 update: After using the app for about two weeks on Roku, I have to say that this is worst streaming service out there. It just logged me out of the system for no reason. I'm so glad I canceled.

  66. guest-avatar

    Good when it works. But the amount of connection errors I get is frankly ridiculous, every other streaming service works perfectly fine on my connection, but on here a 20min episode ends up being 35min+ due to the amount of buffering/ connection time outs. The only reason I still pay Premium is that I fear how much longer I'd have to sit waiting with the ads combined with the previously stated issue.

  67. guest-avatar

    I'm on mobile, and I don't have the luxury of WI-FI, or premium membership. I'm trying to watch the show Tower of God to support the creator, and hopefully get new season's for said show. However as I watch the video buffers. Even as autoplay (which optimizes performance) is on. I could lower video quality manually, but I don't have that option. I can suffer through the buffer, but put a load bar like YouTube for people like me

  68. guest-avatar

    The video player is the worst. It tends to replay audio 10 seconds back when loading then pauses the video instead of loading and continuing the episode. I tried to see if it was just me but it's been a problem with their platform for a while I would reccomend funimation instead because they aren't planning on fixing this at all.

  69. guest-avatar

    The app is seriously poor quality. I'd feel better about the subscription cost if the app worked even remotely as well as anime lab's. When casting, I don't have language options, it often disconnects it's cast from the app (continues casting but the app has no record of it doing so). Leads to a whole bunch of problems. Boo.

  70. guest-avatar

    I want this app to do so well! But the streaming needs to improve. I can't waste my entire hour long lunch break while I watch 1 episode of an anime because off all the buffering and loading and lagging. Not to mention it drained over 40% of my battery to not even finish the episode! And I skipped the 90 second intro! Please fix the steaming service!

  71. guest-avatar

    You can only really watch two or so minutes at a time before it "encounters a problem" and you have to resart the app, find the spot you were and and wait for it to load before you can watch the next few minutes. The UI is nice, but its not helpful if it takes an hour and a half to watch a 20 min episode

    Probably the worst streaming app on my device. The audio fails to catch up the video sometimes, the ads take too long to load and unload, the anime itself also takes a long time to load after the ad ends etc. I feel like I am watching a looping circle loading screen show more than watching actual anime. The absolute worst streaming experience ever, very little incentive to pay for this terrible app.

    I upgraded my account to premium through my Google account. The balance has already been debited from my account but I can't access animes or premium content. Please check and also reverse the period when I am not having access, as it is a communication failure. I already tried to contact the support 2 times but i just get one automatic response, i dont get it, why u guys dont have any e-mails or any direct channel to talk to your clients!! Its Good Ideia, but need improve the Client Suport!!!

    There's anime available on the website that I can't find on the app (ex: Haikyu) and the navigation overall is confusing. The categories available are also very poor, you should have more options. Also a lot of crashes during the episodes, wich doesn't happen on others streaming apps such as Netflix or Amazon. Since the cost is higher then other streaming I find Crunchyroll very lacking.

  75. guest-avatar

    Pretty ok app. You get around three (unskippable) ads back-to-back at three points in a single episode so about nine ads per episode, which isn't the best but understandable considering the need for revenue in exchange for offering free anime. App design isn't the best and login system doesn't work sometimes, but it's serviceable and probably the only option

    I appreciate the fact that I can watch the shows I want to watch as they're not available anywhere else and the selection is good, but the app itself isn't great. Videos keep buffering without actually playing, and then I'll get a message saying "there was a problem playing the video. contact support if the problem persists." Other videos on the app will play, and other apps like Netflix will run with no issue. It seems like remarkably spotty service and as I'm paying I can't say I'm very happy.

    I pay for crunchyroll and honestly, it's not worth it. They obviously suck at maintaining the website and app. It constantly wont play shows and it buffers almost every 30 seconds. At first I thought it was the connection on my phone so I switched to my laptop and it still didn't work. So I checked my internet speed, 100mb a second. You only need 2.5mb to watch Netflix and I had 100 and crunchyroll still didn't work. Better off using other websites because Cruch is pathetic.

  78. guest-avatar

    First off, the quality of the uploaded videos are by far the best I've seen compared to the free websites available. However, the UI is trash. They need to seperate new episodes or series search into sub and dub. You dont notifications when you favourite a series when a new episdoe comes out. Honestly probably not worth the money to invest into the app unless theres a specific crunchyroll series you want to watch and cant be bothered to wait a few hours on a free website.

  79. guest-avatar

    I used to love this app, paid to watch unlimited anime back in the day. Had to take a break and focus on life, now that I have free time I returned, and it really sucks. Tried to watch an episode , can't even get 5mins into an episode without watching the same add 5 times in HD and the main show a couple seconds of HD and then low resolution to completely stop and buffer, then tell me it cannot play the video and tell me to restart.

  80. guest-avatar

    A lot of issues with streaming. Videos always lag. No matter what you use it with, a pc, or a phone, it always lags. It consumes gigabytes of traffic in minutes, and video still crashes like every 2 minutes. Desyncs, spikes, no matter how good your provider is, or how good your connection is. Am I delirious enough to sit and wait for a video to load again and again for half as much time as it would take to watch the episode somewhere else? No. Cancelled my subscription.

  81. guest-avatar

    I am using it with Google Chromecast. The crunchyroll app constantly "forgets" that the content is being streamed to the TV, then the pause/continue button stops working while the video keeps playing on the TV. I have to reboot the Chromecast to make the buttons work again (for a short time). This only happens with crunchyroll.

  82. guest-avatar

    Great app! Lots of amazing anime and great quality to watch in! There are alot of ads but I understand why, only things that could be better are just a few less ads and (I cant stress this enough) please add age ratings! My brother wants to download this app but I cant let him just because there arent any age ratings on the anime. Other than that this is a great app!

  83. guest-avatar

    I love the amount of anime offered to watch, however my experience with the app has been nothing short of just plain aggravating. I'm not a fan of having to sit through each intro for every anime I watch. There should be a skip intro button like every other streaming service I have used. Same with the ending, I hate being forced to sit through the end title credits just to go to the next episode, IF it even works. I'm lucky if I can even watch a video with it buffering every two minutes.

  84. guest-avatar

    I love the anime selection but on my android s9 I am constantly reloading, buffering and waiting for shows to load. It gets 2 stars for lack of speed and due to quality dropping on occasion along with super irritating loading times. Still love the anime but with so much loading I can no longer enjoy them on my phone Edit: I contacted support and issues arent resolved. Watched 8the son for 00:15, 01:37, 01:54, 02:06 and had to retry loading every time. Now its 1 star

  85. guest-avatar

    The amount of lag I experienced while watching shows on this app was astronomical - I was lucky to even be able to finish an episode without it crashing altogether. Just searching it on the web and watching it there is way better. The fact that watching without an account online is better than on this app is honestly embarrassing. Definitely deserves a one star rating.

  86. guest-avatar

    The player used to be okay, but now it's just garbage. It's really buggy and slow. What I really don't like is how long it takes to switch to a lower resolution instead of trying to make 1080/720 work. I cancelled my subscription because of this. Instead of using our money to make POS animations (hgs) no one asked for, why not fix what you have first??

  87. guest-avatar

    If you paid money hoping to have a good viewing experience on this app you should just ask for a refund. There is no reason to download Crunchyroll on your phone if you live outside of North America or Europe because you get 50% of the shows that are available and end up having to pay for a vpn. Also, for anyone who is struggling with the constant loading, just log in from your browser for a 10000 times better experience. I do love the interface though.

  88. guest-avatar

    every minute i get 4 ads and all these ads are the same there is no variety . This app is just made for making money and deceiving those who buy premium, but if they make the ads have a skip button they will still get there money, infact double as they would grow, but this is all made for money and they dont respond or do anything in our behalf.

  89. guest-avatar

    unless one pays for premium, one cannot enjoy this app. Ads are bugged and will frequently cause the user to be unable in playing any selected show. There is a vast array of bugs as well within the app especially when chromecasting. The creators clearly have not bothered to bug test their non premium functions as it does not serve in their monetary interests, however they have also not thought that happy customers stick around and invest into the service. Also crunchyroll made ads are terrible.

    One word: Disapointing. Online version is conservative and the performance isnt perfect however this app is disapointing, after using stream apps I can say that the design is below average. Its unnatural the way you need to save on favorites to resume and the nonexisting alerts for updates, the worst is that videos crashes a lot! Im premium so can support industry, hope app improves so I can avoid piracy. BTW translation, dub and encode are great! Content & selection are good but could improve.

    First of all when using crunchyroll in a TV the subtitles don't show up at any time. Secondly the app runs fatal in my S9, imagine a high cost device that I bought just for watching series without internal issues and I can't because of this awful system. Finally I don't recommend subscribing to crunchtyroll, you'd better find another site even though I'm a member by times I really regret wasting money on this site.

  92. guest-avatar

    This app is great if you want to watch anime as there is a wide variety to choose from, don't be put off by bad reviews saying that there are too many ads as they have cut down and its not a bad tradeoff for free anime. There are some anime that you need premium to watch eg One Piece but for the rest it is just the newest episode so if you don't mind having to wait an extra week and a few ads this app is great

  93. guest-avatar

    I enjoy using the app, but there is one crucial issue, that bugs me a lot. If you were to exit out of an episode while in the middle of it, when you come back to the episode it does not resume from where you left off. When that happens, and you try to skip forward in the episode, you need to watch all of the adds again.

  94. guest-avatar

    Good app, I love watching anime, and I can never find anywhere to watch it, so this helps. But my GOD are the constant ads are intrusive. I have to watch a bunch of them before I can watch a single episode of something, then I have to watch more a couple minutes later, and MORE at the end of the episode. It is very, very irritating. Trying to watch anything is tedious.

  95. guest-avatar

    Since it's free anime I'm not going to complain much about the ads, but there is one problem. Most of the ads, always freeze somewhere in the middle. I close the app and try again, but still, if it's a different ad, it still might freeze. This is very annoying. I'm not even sure if this is my fault or not. If it's yours, please fix it crunchyroll.

  96. guest-avatar

    Okay, I'm gonna start off by saying I really do love this app. But I've had the app less than a month and already had multiple problems with my premium account. Which really does suck because it's a great concept, but needs work on the billing and management department. I'm currently waiting for a response because my premium isn't showing up, and this is the second time this has happened. But when I had my trial active(before it deactivated itself) I absolutely LOVE the app. Just a few problems.

  97. guest-avatar

    This app is awesome, the only reason I did not give it 5 stars is due to a small issue that I encounter while casting to a Chromecast where after one episode I loose control of the content being casted, that is, the playback controls simply stop working for the casted content except for the "next episode" button which works just fine

    Everytime I try use the app on my Roku stick it keeps saying its not connected to the internet but all the other apps that require internet work fine. It's a great app but when this happens I get fed more ads. I got half way through and watched the ads, it then said it couldn't connect to the internet. Once I got it to work I was then fed another 3 ads before I could watch anything. The ITV Hub who are also dependent on ads do not do this...

  99. guest-avatar

    Content is good but the app is Terrible. Looks like a '90s app. The UI needs a huge update. Features like better player (with features like quality change, comments (with profile emojis, better account settings like VRV, subtitle change), offline viewing are needed. Look at Netflix - its so beautiful. This app looks ugly just like the website. That's the only problem. The entire Crunchyroll Service needs an overhaul with better social features, spectacular UI like Netflix or VRV.

    Won't play pass 30 seconds of any video. Its not my internet connection. I've used WI-FI and my phone data, same results. Update: playing the video at 480p and its still trash Update 2: the website only plays 1 min after buffering for 5 mins. Using the same device my hulu subscription and Netflix and even YouTube are pushing 1080p vids no problem. Same internet connection. Premium subscription, no-ads
