Good news but minimal effects It is a great source of anime news but the graphics suck and you can't search for articles. You can just mindlessly scroll. But it gives me good news and doesn't take up much space so it serves the basic purpose. If You're looking for a high quality anime news app try Tokyo otaku mode mini. That app is fantastic and has the features this app is lacking. I recommend having both for the articles are never on the same thing.
Need to add Share function and respect device orientation Upping my rating to 4 stars temporarily since you do seem to be addressing some issues. If it stops forcing portrait mode and add the standard Android share function I will rate this 5 stars. The fact that the app does not respect the devices orientation and instead forces portrait mode is a major issue to me. I use this on a 10" tablet that is almost permanently locked into landscape mode so when an app forces portrait mode (which almost never happens) it is a problem. Other than those issues I like the app.
No search function?! This app is too minimalist, even for my minimalism loving self. It's so bare bones as to be almost self-parodizing. The design concept for the UI falls short of what one expects from a news application too. I couldn't find anything related to the subject I was interested in reading about because of endless scrolling. Take a nod from Tumblr and give the option to page swipe too. Needs text resizing as well.
Lacking I enjoy crunchyroll and this app is my first stop for anime news but it's lacking. It's Fairly basic. Which can be good in some respects but it gets old. You can search articles you just have to scroll. You can share them either. Just small things that after awhile get on your nerves. I'll still be using it. I just wish it was better.
Overall good app I like the look of the app, because it reminds me of the regular Crunchyroll app. Within about 15 minutes I had already read several articles about some of my favorite video games and anime. I even found a couple new animes I am now looking forward to! The only things keeping this from a 5/5 is the lack of Sharing and Searching functionality, which I am sure will be delivered sooner than later. :) Great work development and QA teams!

No search, no sections, very bare. This can hardly be called a news app. There is no search option for a start so you have to scroll through hundreds of articles to find anything and without clear sections to divide the articles into this is a tedious task. This app needs serious work to be useful.
