Five to six ads per commercial break!! And during the ads, the screen is not kept active like on normal video, so the screen will time out and fade to black, but audio keeps playing. Then the app crashes when you turn the screen back on, and when you boot the app back up, it doesn't remember that you watched the ads, so you get five to six MORE. Having said that, the selection is great. Honestly, if they reduced the ads to two to three and fixed the screen time out, this would be five stars. But it seriously affects enjoyment. Edit: Have now attempted to watch the same half an hour episode six times. To hell with this. Thanks for saving me from subscribing, Crunchyroll!
This app is good. But the ads don't always load which means I end up waiting 10 minutes before loading gives up and starts the anime again. Also, there should be a way to request animes to be added. For example, One Punch Man isn't on this, which makes watching it harder on Xbox or apps. So I have to load it up on my laptop and risk viruses.
Within one 30 minute episode, I have watched the exact same advert 13 times. Having to watch the same advert repeat 3 or 4 times per add break. Seems like a good website, but there are better places to watch anime that don't have adverts or require you to be a premium member for almost everything.
Definitely the best company out their right now to watch anime legally sub prices aren't bad and no matter what platform I watch it on (t.v., xbox,PlayStation,tablet or phone) the video and streaming quality are fantastic no matter the platform your on. This is a great company that takes care of their customers and I think it's great that they contribute to the anime industry by making it easier to watch anime legally so that the creators hopefully make enough money to make more seasons of are favorite shows.
I've been a premium member for a few years now, and have used the app with my Chromecast more-or-less effectively (there are frequent hiccups and glitches with both, but usually I can work around them). I love CR as a service, but there always seems to be some playback issue or another with the Android app. It gets very frustrating after a while.
I don't really know what to think about this. I wanted to try and watch something I hadn't seen before (which is why I downloaded the app. The issue that I'm having is that at the first set of adds it doesn't play just one but plays a new add every time an add is watched or skipped. I believe that if this didn't happen, and only one add was played, I would enjoy the app much more.
