LOVE IT!!!! Yes there are ads, but if you've watched Crunchyroll on any other device you should be use to it. Adding this app has completed my Crunchyroll addiction. I have the site on my Roku player and on my computer as well, so I was happy to learn that there was an app. The quality of the shows is great, and I kind of prefer watching this way as opposed to on my TV or computer. Well worth getting it. Who needs game apps when you can spend your free time watching anime?
Yay! Finally running smooth! And by this, I mean through Chromecast. I prefer to cast to my TV because I find it easier when I just want to pop it on without pulling out remotes and controllers, like I have to for my PC and PS3. I open the app on my phone, hit the cast button, TV turns on like it's supposed to. No muss, no fuss. My PC and PS3 are a little too old, and simply are not set up for that. I would like to see better video controls in the app while streaming. Just something as simple as how many minutes/seconds of video go by when you move the slider would be great.
I don't get it. This is a great app. Well, a great app to watch anime on. If you can't afford the premium why complain about the ads? Just watch 1 minute and 30 seconds of ads. It's about a third of tv commercials. That's hardly anything to get upset about. And I'm pretty sure If the app decided to skip intros and outros then you'd miss some important pieces. Some anime have clips in the beginning before the intro. Others have a tiny nugget of video after the outro that isn't "next time on" so watch them.
Littered with ads An amazing app for anime, great quality, tons of shows. But there are a lot of flaws too. First and foremost, the ADS, tons of 'em, 3 at the beginning, 6 in the middle and 3 to get to the next episode. Also, there is no option for dub or sub , and you have to pay to get episodes were free services (kissanime) have them for no charge. In addition there is a void of popular, great animes.
Would love to give a 5, but.... Keeps crashing on my Android running nougat. Since I mainly run it on my phone and not my iPad I deduct 1 star. I deduct another star for selection with the paid app. Meaning, crunchy roll has about 60 - 75% of the anime that I want to watch and when they become available. Other than that, great app and great video quality.
Way to many ads I understand that ads are a must to keep the app free, but are you kidding me?! I had to watch 3 ads before the episode started (2 of which you can skip after 10 secs and 1 full ad you cant skip). During the same episode I had to sit through a total of 15 ads! That's just to many imo.
