I would love to rate this 5 stars, and if I could actually watch something I probably would. I am a premium member, so I have a que and every time I go to watch an anime it takes to long and times out. You need to do what Netflix has done with the ability to download shows at home so it doesn't waste your data. You want us to support the anime community, well we're part of that community as well so help us out...
Excellent on wifi (premium user so not dealing with ads), but on mobile networks this is basically unusable. Standing still in 4g where i can stream other services at 1080p60fps it constantly buffers and video will freeze randomly. Make the 3g/4g experience better if you want me to recommend to others.
I love the concept and selection of shows especially considering the low monthly price to enjoy a series without any adds(which I pay) but the buffering and load times are HORRRIBLE when I'm on my mobile device. Most of the time I just give up what I'm watching. I'm not sure what the deal is because I'm generally in a pretty good area of coverage or Wi-Fi.
This is a great app. For all the people saying there are too many ads, think about this. This is like cable television, except it's free. All they have are ad breaks that last 5 minutes or something around that time. NOTHING like the crazy 10 minutes or so other reviews are saying. Plus, normal television has commercial breaks, why are you hating on it just because it's an app? I recommend you get it. But the ads do take a while to get used to.
Worst experience. I couldn't watch online due to browser limitations (Chrome? seriously?) so I had to install this. Long story short, after seven 30-sec ads I still haven't watched one single second of my show. What happened to Crunchyroll?
Unusable. Constant adds which run perfectly. Getting the actual show to play is a nightmare. It constantly stops, or jumps back 15 seconds. It's also a data hog. I watched 3 episodes this week and it's used 7gb of data. What!? iPlayer used half that much for twice the content length
