Paid subscription is worth it! 5/5
I used to use the unpaid app and put up with the advertisements; however I ran out of patience and decided to pay the monthly subscription. I do not regret it, plus it gives you access to mangas which is very cool.
App works about 50% of the time 2/5
The app is totally serviceable when it works. The website itself actually works pretty much all the time, but using the iOS or Xbox app, there are certain periods when it’s just pointless to try to log on. I can’t connect to the servers. I prefer to watch on my phone or tv, not my laptop. I’m paying a monthly fee, I expect the app to work whenever I’m available to watch, not just during low traffic hours.
Amazing if paid subscriber. 5/5
By A chapman 54
Here’s the thing. If you are subscribed to them, and you are a paid subscriber. Then this app is amazing. Just open it up, click on any of the shows you want, and it’s there. No bugs or glitches at all. My suggestion is if you’re a paid subscriber to crunchyroll, then it’s a must have on your phone. And there is huge library of shows to watch as well.
Good app but please update for the iPhone X 4/5
The bar at the bottom of the video does not disappear during video, which is distracting and may contribute to screen burn-in.
It is funny how all the ads to the anime all load perfectly but not a single second of the actual anime loads.
This would be better with... 4/5
By Cool beans 69 420
A gaming genre.
Dubs (even tho I dislike them. There are good dubbed anime).
A translation of what the genres are.
I mean everyone loves a good gaming anime. I sure do know I do.
A anime like gamers or sao or log horizon. They would fit perfectly into the gaming genre.
Needs updating 1/5
By Brad Hilts
The app needs to be updated for the iPhone X, as the videos have the “app switcher” bar at the bottom of the screen. Extremely distracting.
After a developer response stating to update the app to fix it, I’m keeping my review the same. It’s been two days without an update since the response, and the issue with the videos on the iPhone X remain.
Updated 11/23. On multiple devices the anime will just stop at random spots and show a black screen forever. My internet works fine, and this happens almost every time I try to watch something. If I exit and start again it might work. I pay for this?
Please help 1/5
Is there anyway to watch in English cause everything I click on is in freakin Japanese!!!
Good but 2/5
By Alex insane
I love this app it has all my fav anime’s but there are so many add. Sometimes I don’t even get to watch all the anime because there are so many add that it takes to long
Very awesome!!!😍😍😍😍😍 5/5
I love Crunchyroll because it is awesome to watch anime without looking it up on the internet and it is awesome to watch it without any bad or inappropriate pop ups. My friends sister saw a very inappropriate image in the internet but when she used Crunchyroll she was saved from the grossness and disturbance. Thank u crunchy for giving me great times and could u Maybe do a update for notifications when my next episode is realised? Thanks! I love u guys!!!!!😄
Great App but, frozen... 3/5
Before it was fine only freezing every now and than but, now about 5-10% of the video it is frozen( I have waited 5+ minutes for it to contine).
Good app just have dub anime please 3/5
By The gaming kid212
I was going to watch naruto when all I could watch was sub and I would like all the anime on the app to have a option to watch sub or dub anime
too many commercials!! 1/5
By MARY CULLEN<3
just to many commercials had to see like 10 so i can continue watching it and it does the same thing more commercials than the movie playing fix please i love this app only if there was 1 commercial!
I’m fine with ads 1/5
But they’re so broken in this app that it becomes unusable. Literally sometimes getting stuck on an unending ad loop.
Great, just one thing.... 5/5
By Mari Jinn
Love this app. Would also love if you guys would add more slice of life/romance animes!
Horrible Video Playback on iPhone X 1/5
It seems like Crunchyroll is using its own video player because unlike every other video app on iPhone X, Crunchyroll is the only one who fails to hide the Home button indicator and so all videos play with the constantly color shifting line at the bottom, obscuring content.
There are other issues with iPhone X but that this one hasn’t been addressed since iPhone X release is pretty egregious.
6 ads after every break. It was great before all of this.
Ads, back to back. 1/5
Sure, it’s a free app. But holy hell there’s four to five ads per video. Every five minutes you need to wait an entire minute to continue.
Please fix 3/5
It keeps turning to a black screen when i get a certain bit into a epsiode of any anime and i tryed 6 differnt ones and it still did it sooo please fix other wise its a goood app
I’ve been using crunchyroll for years and haven’t had a problem.Great quality and content also the store benefits are nice too.
Servers always down 3/5
Even as a paid subscriber, the app is down at LEAST once a day it seems like (Not even over exaggerating). I wake up turn it on and it reads a message that the servers experienced an error. This happens on all of my devices. I only stay with them because the anime content and when it’s working, it’s great. But I’d say 50% of the time I turn it on, servers are down, this is a HUGE percentage to be down (AGAIN NOT EXAGGERATING). If you can deal with that I’d pay for subscription. As soon as I’m done with my anime’s I’m canceling until my anime’s come back on... a paid subscriber should have access to content more then once per day. WERE TIRED OF PAYING FOR THIS NO SERVICE PICTURE CRUNCHYROLL
Great App 4/5
Great app that meets all anime needs.
Whats going on?!?! 1/5
By Dads adds
So I paid to watching anime but during in a middle of a show my screen goes all black and I can’t see anything what’s going on please fix this. I’d rather to just stop paying every month because I’m just wasting my money
Ad infestation 2/5
I used to love this app. As a paying customer, I would expect to watch everything I wanted without having to deal with ads. Now I have to deal with ads for crap that I don’t want. Even with the skip option it’s a complete annoyance to the point I just stop watching altogether because if I wanted to watch something with annoying commercials, I’d watch regular cable. Really close to cancelling my subscription.
Wish every thing was dubbed in English 4/5
NEED THINGS DUBBED IN ENGLISH
Love it! 5/5
Started getting out of dubbed anime and into subbed and I have to say I love it! Paid for the one year subscription and have been very happy since then! Only issue is if I keep a video paused for too long it will start playing
iPhone X 3/5
Please allow me to go full screen and fix the bottom bar issue. Thanks
crunchyroll is the destination for all things anime 5/5
By johnsfimls red
they have easy access to all your favorite shows (continue)
Please add offline downloads 4/5
By Island Life
Please add offline downloads for viewing for paying subscribers. This is apparently available on VRV and should be something offered to those of us who are paying for this service.
By Ch1ck3n r0n
The adds are killing me they just fine like 5 ads in a f-ing row like how many for ads do I need to watch just to continue my ANIMUUUUUUU
Bad on iPhone X 3/5
Not optimized at all and it shows. Customer support will not address feedback or issues with it either.
I know it's free, but the ads are overkill. 1/5
If one wishes to watch anime via Crunchyroll mobile. Unless you're paying, don't I got 3 ads in one place, it's almost unwatchable.
By Pardis B
The streaming is not smooth at all especially when I cast to a Chromecast device. On Apple TV the app keeps logging me out and is a pain to login again. Sadly I'll continue using this broken app because no better alternatives exist that offer the same content. :(
Not so hot anymore 1/5
Does not let me stream to my tv so much for being a premium member
By lil john o7 pervert 90
First of the only reason it’s bad is because I GRT 40 SEC OF ANIME TIME AND THEN A AD POPS UP NOW IM GOOD WITH ONE AD BUT AFTER THAT AD WAS ANOTHER AD THEN ONE MORE THEN ANOTHER THEN ANOTHER THEN ANOTHER AND I NEVER GOT TO WATCH MY SHOW
Great app 5/5
I used to pay until i found out the website 9anime so now all i use crunchyroll for is finding which anime i wanna watch than i look it up on 9anime and watch it free there
Good but too many ads 3/5
The app is great especially if you have the paid version unfortunately not Everyone has the money to get the paid version and in my opinion the free version isn’t nearly as good it has 10+ ads per episode and many times plays the same ad which ruins the free to use version
I figured it out 5/5
Love my Queue and my Pass.
Stopped working 3/5
By Brass Baker
I love crunchyroll but as of two days ago it will not connect to my chrome cast tv which it never had issues with before. It doesn’t work what so ever on my Xbox 360 or Xbox one. It loads up then goes back to the main menu. It also doesn’t want to work on my Roku tv it only allows me to watch certain shows on it. But it always works good on the phone or tabs so I’m not sure why all the issues but please fix.
Good anime 5/5
I Adblock ONLY crunchyroll 1/5
I tend to binge shows, so I ended up watching the trailer for the box-troll movie 72 times in one day. 72 times! The trailer annoyed me the first time.
Even if the amount of ads are needed, there is no good reason to repeat the same advertisement over and over...and PLEASE get some targeted advertising already.
I generally believe Adblock is bad, but your method for handling ads is so much worse that I feel like it is unethical to give you revenue.
Needless to say, I have Adblock set to block crunchyroll... only crunchyroll.
Poor support 1/5
My Xbox and iPhone app are hit or miss. Sometimes I can watch anime and other times I get server error.
I tried Crunchyroll support. Clear cache. Reinstall app. Same problem.
They suggest playing with router settings. No thanks and I express that I’m about ready to cancel my premium membership.
Few hours later and no email response. They cancel my premium membership for me.
I signed up for funimation just now.
Updated: Still Best Anime app on the market, but could be improved. 4/5
Picture Quality: Amazing
Subtitle Quality: Amazing
Buffering: Servers overloaded at certain hours
Selection: Amazing. Starting to branch out with original content and cool movies/shorts like BladeRunner!
Wishlist: A way to sort anime by production date and studio. More older anime!
I’m a paid subscriber and their service is so unreliable. Literally will freeze seconds into starting an episode on multiple devices. Not an issue with my network as I can stream 4K content no problem when I encounter this issue
Great if you're a paid user, However... 2/5
If you're a free user, I mean I don't mind ads, I get it that crunchy roll needs the money to pay for the anime it got, but like seriously ? each ad break for me keeps looping itself, It never ends and I can't skip it! i'm fine with 2 ads each ad break but looping and locking the app? Disappointed.
I am not amused. 1/5
This app has the most high-quality anime I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, you devs had to be insane money-grabbers. It’s one thing that there’s a big collage of ads interrupting my show every 5 minutes. Now we have to pay to watch the latest episodes? Total bull. It’s like you’re forcing us to go premium. Oh wait, you are. I don’t want to pay premium for an app that I don’t use often. Why force me/other people to?
I’m way too young to have a credit card and pay for these on my own, plus, I wouldn’t WANT to. The ads can be tolerable, but the rest is all just unbelievably annoying.
I don’t care if you offer a free-trial. I don’t want you to force me into buying your premium!
This is why I go for less quality, but less greedy apps.
By Liz Rodriguez night
Great app just having issues on the iPhone X, the line that serves as the “home button” when rotated sideways to see it on the bigger screen stays at the bottom which is kind of annoying. It never goes away
Doesn’t work 1/5
Doesn’t work here or on my nvidia shield
5 ads just to watch the beginning of a show. Ef off. Can i go lower than 1 star?
Don’t waste your money!!! 1/5
You pay every month and they randomly take off anime or a buck of random episodes in anime’s that your watching so you can’t even continue. Sometimes they remove the whole thing!! Then when you reach out to customer service they have an attitude and try to tell you nonsense lol “your on a free trial” I’ve been a paying customer since 2011 and have my credit card receipts to prove it! There’s no trial that’s 6 years long try again. I will just be sticking to funimation after doing their trial only 5.99 with a wider variety and stability.
