Awesome App Although sometimes the ads repeat 2-3 times for me, it's still so worth it to watch my favorite shows. There's a large selection to choose from as well as popular ones. I really love the whole idea of the app as well and supporting content creators. If I made enough money, I'd gladly purchase Premium. Until I do get it though, I'll just be enjoying a few two minute ads 😂 love the app and keep doing what you're doing. (Maybe fix the rare repeating ads though)
It's Good if You Can't Watch Anywhere Else It's good, the quality is good. Whenever I can't access my laptop and I'm in the mood to continue watching an anime, this is suitable. However, there are way too many ads. You can't even skip them. You have to watch 3 - 5 ads in the beginning, after the intro, in the middle of the anime, and before the ending song. I really only consider watching on Crunchyroll when there's no other option.
Download fixed great app Had problems downloading but now it's fixed. Has a lot of great shows like Bleach and both Narutos. Has some shows in both english dub and sub like Fushigi Yuugi (great show), sword art online one and two, and others. Has JoJo which is an amazing fighting anime. Has some hidden gems like Wagnaria! which is hilarious. Also one of my favorites Gitama which is also hilarious. The adds are just because it's and legal. If you don't want them just pay the cheap monthly fee.
Just pay if you don't want ads, like you do with Netflix This is a LEGITIMATE service that provides it's funds to the creators of the anime you watch. All these people are complaining that it has too many ads. Of course it would, since you aren't paying for anything. They need to help give money to the creators SOME way. If you don't want ads, just go to any of those illegal websites. This app is for people who are willing to support their favorite shows. That aside, once you pay it truly is an amazing app.
Too Many Ads When you want to watch an episode of whatever anime, you get 3-4 ads in the beginning, which isn't so bad. Then, you get about 5 more ads, advertising the exact same thing over and over. This happens 3x per episode of anime. 3 ads at start, and 15 more split up over 20 minutes. If you don't buy a membership (and that seems to be overpriced as well) you'll know all of the ads by heart before you get through 3 episodes of anything. If not for extremely excessive ads, I'd rate 5/5 stars.
A Great App As someone who's been watching anime for years and has finally bought a subscription to the service, I can't say enough about Crunchyroll. It's got a wide selection of great shows, and the simulcasts are wonderful. If I had to say one bad thing about it, it'd be that the app lacks a lot of dubbed anime, but that's it.
