So I have a premium account and find the app great for anime. My only complaint is that I don't have the fastest internet, so I get a lot of buffering. Other apps like crunchyroll, Netflix, HBO, etc I can stream fine with mild buffering but this app is like every 30 sec. If it could get better optimised I would give it 5 stars.
Has ads, but no worse than regular TV except they can be 2.5min long and double the volume of the show. Nearly blew out my eardrum with the first add I saw cause of the volume spike. Show variety is pretty good and the UI isn't terrible. Having the watchlist allows you to track what you have seen and what you want to see. Definitely needs CC (closed caption) but worth trying out for free.
There's just so many adds it just ruins everything. Yeah sure the app is easy to navigate and its free but heck people shouldn't have to pay to watch anime ad free. It really annoys me when two ads end up playing or even THREE when I skip one. Then they end up becoming ads that take forever and sometimes the ad freezes and it takes a minute to load the video but the audio is still going making it even longer. At least please lower the amount of ads to 1-2 per show maybe. Otherwise this is a great app
There's nothing wrong with ads. VRV typically had approximately 3 segments of 30-60 second ads throughout an episode. However, now I'm receiving a minimum of 2 minute commercial four times an episode. I despise cable tv, and I never thought I'd have to return to this. I'm hesitant on paying for premium if it means they will increase the amount of ads to such a degree.
Can you guys add quality control please? And also i been having trouble with the ads lately. Everytime it goes to the add placement it takes forever to show an ad. It doesn't even show the loading icon no more. It's just a black screen
I think VRV has a lot of potential. It's missing a few things for me to give it 5 stars though. A good rating system, episode numbers (they're only there if the episode title has it), closed caption on/off, quality adjustments, funimation has subs and dubs but I can't seem to switch to subbed versions, and I can't sort by genre, season, etc... However, VRV is solid and silky smooth. I really like the sounds and the overall look. Really looking forward to VRV once it adds more features! I highly recommend it even with these few missing features ;)
