  • Love crunchy!

    By S3riusly
    I’ve been a paid subscriber for around two years and I’m very satisfied, even the occasional server issues have reduced over time and I love that the app has a dark mode! I’ve tried the other services but this is the one I’m happiest with. I did link to VRV so I can watch some episodes offline while I take my subway rides to work but I prefer this app for general usage. I do have in request, I’m tired of the dubs taking precedence over the subs. I do t like dubs, they are terrible and corny and I’d like a function where I set my preference so I don’t accidentally play a English or German dub and have to go back to switch the “season” and get the regular Japanese subbed entries.
  • Too many ads and also fails to load them and gets stuck

    By Hickman497
    As in the title there’s way too many ads. Also it sometimes fails to load any of the ads and then gets stuck and douse nothing. I have to exit out of the app and then restart it but even then it fails to load any ads
  • Crap

    By water boh
    Don’t waste your time downloading this crap to many ads barely started watching a show and already four ads popped up back to back 😪
  • Horrible

    By Whoo,games
    They give you ads upon ads and it takes forever to load
  • Ad problem

    By alien._.ash
    The app usually works fine, but ads just decide not to load sometimes. I have to completely close the app and reopen it to start the ads over. There are also way too many ads.
  • Hi👋🏽

    By midche
    I’m fine with watching ads but it’s wayyy too much and every time and ad plays then the next one would come on freeze and then close i just got a new phone it does the same thing but after that the anime’s r great I really like the app
  • Too many ads

    By Come at me chrunchyroll
    I get 4-6 ads every ad break I spend more time watching ads then the show that I came for!!!!!!!
  • Lot of ads

    By yhung joe
    Have to watch to many ads
  • Decent app

    By Sharon9573848477
    Crunchyroll is a pretty okay app to watch your anime. I personally enjoyed the experience I had while watching some anime. The only problems I really have with this app is that it would randomly turn black and would make me stare at a black screen for hours until I would give up and go on YouTube.I also have a problem with how many adds you’d have to watch before getting back into the anime. Either way, I recommend this app to my fellow anime fans. 💖
  • It ok

    By Eggspud
    It does what it’s supposed to do
  • There are to many adds and..........

    By rjsims2010
    There are to many adds and some of the adds if you want to watch what it pulls up it may say you do not have permission also the search only lets you type in one word if you press space it will say that there are no results.
  • Make a save file were it has all the anime

    By siver smile
    Does not have all the anime like every anime mad
  • Crashed

    By nikpatywak
    I love to watch shows but I also hate when during an ad the app decides to crash multiple times. I've checked if it was my connection and the app still stays in a black screen until I close it and then I'm having to watch 6 more ads on top of the ones I've already watched. Until this gets resolved it's definitely two stars for me I wouldn't recommend this app.
  • Ads

    By Doge is GOD
    Overall The quality is good, but in one minute through I’ve had nine times in a row and it’s the same thing it’s the exact same ad, and one episode I get up to 27+ ads,please!add overload, just no!
  • Awesome (rasengan and kamehameha)

    By person12366350
    I can find almost all the anime’s I used to watch I just wanna hear them in english
  • Add spamming

    By chenue lost his profille
    Stop spam adds I can’t watch in pice and it’s add after add after add it mostly adds I see I only get see the start
  • Problem with playing episodes.

    By Spaceman Man
    The app is amazing: I'm able to watch it on LTE, the video quality is high, etc. The one problem I have is with the ads, sort of. Every once in a while, after watching the ads, the video simply doesn't play (or perhaps it's a bugged ad). It's frustrating when I'm in the middle of an episode and this happens because will have to sit through multiple ads only for the same thing to happen again. I'm not sure if me playing this on an older version of iOS has anything to do with it.
  • Ads Galore

    By R.I.P. Grunge
    The amount of ads every 5 minutes is just way to much. You get anywhere from 4-6 ads between every few minutes as well... Every tick you see in the video timeline is not just a single ad but a series of ads. I’ve had a premium member ship, but all the membership is for is to get rid of the ads, and frankly just isn’t worth it. The app works fine, and if you can deal with the ads overload that have no pertinence towards anime (for example my ads seem to be about nothing but cars, car parts, and car insurance) then it’ll work.
  • Ads won’t play

    By mcfallincollin
    The ads aren’t playing so the anime won’t play so I unfortunately can’t watch. BUT I have already done what the FAQs suggested and nothing has happened
  • Ads freeze up, forces you to restart app

    By byteme1234
    Ads that are shot in HD tend to freeze up. I would not want to advertise my product here because nobody will see it. Also, the skip ad button doesn't work half the time.
  • 2 problems that you NEED to fix

    By Aaaaa💋
    I LOVE watching Sailor Moon and I watch it all the time on crunchyroll, but for some reason, when I go into the app and tap on episode 30, it won’t play. It just appears black and it just stays with a black screen! I tried closing out of the app and going back in but it still doesn’t work. I also noticed that there are a LOT of ads. I get that you want to earn money, but seriously? I just really want less ads and for the black screen problem to go away! Other than that, I love Crunchyroll!
  • Black screen glitch

    By The Game Hater 26
    I loved this app, I really did. But one day I sat down to watch a show and it wouldn’t load, just showed a black screen. Ever since then, 3/4 times when I use this app, it just doesn’t work. Apart from that, great app.
  • The app problem

    By AnimeFanClub
    This app is amazing, but why there is not more sports animes of soccer basketball tennis,etc, the best animes should be here not just random animes that no one cares about I told all of my friends about this app and we when crazy because of sports and about naruto, boruto and dragon ball sand others more but I’m mad that soccer animes are not here when they are one of the most watch animes and I think you should make the language they one that you know or want to listen to no just Chinese and Japanese language I’m tired of reading the subtitles😡😡, so please change this two things that would make the app the best one 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻💯💯💯 thank you I appreciate it.
  • No care for customers.

    By Gigakilomila
    These people I swear. First, they throttle their own service and pump it with so many adds that the shows become impossible to watch. Now normally this works, and for a while it did. HOWEVER, when you force your own advertisements to CRASH the app in order to get people to pay money (or use the free trial, which I already did). Second, when someone deletes the app and reinstalls the app in order to fix this problem you DELETE their account (yes I saved the password). Not cool. Do not use, it is not worth it unless you want to use the free trial and can actually pay the overpriced subscription fee.
  • Videos won’t load

    By Fenrirfenn
    Since last week, no matter my connection, videos wouldn’t play for more than about 5 minutes, usually freezing on some kind of ad. Today when i tried to watch Reincarnated as a Slime, it wouldn’t even start period
  • Anime

    By Chef3fingers
    If you want to watch Crunchyroll for anime it’s great but for this on mobile you are forced to watch ads for 1 ad break I was forced to watch 6 ads! What is that?
  • Bugs bugs bugs

    By epricity
    This whole app barley works at all.
  • Please tell me how to fix this

    By Weeb 🤪
    Every time I want to watch anime, at the beginning there is supposed to be an ad but then the screen goes black and the ad won’t play so I can’t watch the anime.
  • Always been broken

    By LonfielS
    Crashes constantly and causes my phone to respring. It’s been this way for years and they’ve never managed to fix this issue. And they want me to pay too? Yeah right.
  • Fix please.

    By Kayo0059
    I love this app. I love watching anime. But recently the app has been acting strange. It will play and when its time for the ads the screen just goes black now it can’t watch anything. Plus I’m right in the middle of “One Piece” so yeah you know my struggle. Please let’s resolve this issue ASAP.
  • Ads galore!

    By JesusBeastness
    I just wanted to watch some anime but I can’t because there are so many ads and most of the time they won’t even load so I can’t even watch anything.
  • Standard Membership

    By Engyle
    I understand the business model for trying to maximize ad space for customers who do not choose to pay for the premium membership. But there is a particular ad in the random draw pool that seems to crash the app. The ad loading wheel will come up load and finish then the screen goes completely black. It is still lit because I can pull down the OS notification menu but the ad seems to be persistent. When I have attempted to let the ad play out my phone times out and goes to the lock screen. This particular ad makes it impossible to get through and episode and forced me to look for alternative ways to watch content.
  • Love the idea , poorly executed

    By Brian**
    I understand the need for ad’s, running servers and adding new content cost money. But the ad system is clearly broken. Bunch of ad’s at the start and end of every episode is crazy. It takes 5-10 min just to start the next episode and if you’re trying to benge watch an entire season it’s just not worth it. Not to mention a number of ad’s during the show as well, ow and did I mention all the ad’s are actually just the same ad being replayed over and over. Best this app can hope for is to provide a list of new shows to watch on YouTube. (at least that’s what I use it for) It’s such a wast :( Ugh! worst part is it could easily be fixed by fewer ad’s or if you watch multiple episodes, you get fewer ad’s every episode you watch or something Ow and could we get a few English dub shows for crying out loud!!! (New ad system much better way to go keep up the great work)
  • Adds

    By Dovahkiingamer12
    I only wish the adds were fewer in number like on or two instead of 5 or 6
  • I can’t create an account!

    By KionAzai
    I was trying to create a dang account and it keeps saying incorrect password?? I AM CREATING AN ACCOUNT I don’t HAVE an account password yet 😡 I’m literally trying to buy a subscription so HELP MEEEE
  • App is broken.

    By RiskyRedRock
    Played one episode perfectly fine(food wars). Next episode played the intro then the ads and after the ads, the videos don’t load/ play, app freezes. Uninstalled and installed, still videos don’t play.
  • No seven deadly sins

    By mike0philphs
    Idk y seven deadly sins isn’t on her or black butler I’m confused
  • So many bugs just like on Xbox

    By Doodle Bob123
    There are so many bugs on this app and on the Xbox crunchyroll app. I’m not a premium user YET because I’m finishing some anime’s that are free. However, the app always crashes or the ads don’t load so your stuck with a black screen. I’m planning on getting premium when i’m done but these bugs on both Xbox and Iphone make me second guess investing in premium.

  • English and ad problem

    By Loony Tune Gamer
    Hello CruchyRoll creaters, I love this app all my favorite animes and new animes I haven't watched all in one,but when watching the anime you expect it to start automatically,but NO there are tons of ads,and another thing I know anime is basically Japanese,but could you make it were you can change it to an English changer,for people who want that!Other than those to problems this app is great,but it has potential for a little improvement! -BunnyBae
  • THE BEST—- but...

    By ((aNOMymous))
    This app is by far the best anime watching app I have ever set my hands upon on my phone. (Dramatic) but, for some reason an error occurs on certain anime that I want to watch. I try to play it, but it says “error. Load again” I just got this app and it’s kinda a big letdown saying that anime is my favorite. Is there something wrong with my phone, or is it from the app? ((please help!!!)) Σ('◉⌓◉’)
  • Ok so

    By Mia~ChanLovesYoosung
    Im trying to watch Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure and im expecting my usual 5 ads in a row. But ya see, the screen just goes black. No ads no sound no Jojo no Dio. What am i supposed to do??? Most of the time this app works, but it occasionally has the balls to stop you with some random glitch! Ive tried closing and reopening the app and deleting any other apps open, but to no avail. This app is the only way to watch good, high quality anime and it crams a membership down your throat in order to get as far as episode 2. Between crawling through ads and being stuck on glitches, ive given up on quite a few great anime and i dont want to give up on Jojo.
  • Bug/Glitch

    By Anon. Y Mous
    This is an advertising bug. No, I don’t have a problem with the amount of ads, just the fact that they’re so broken for me (IOS). Many times when an ad break happens the ads won’t play. That wouldn’t be so bad if i could close the show and open it back up, but I can’t. I’m forced to stare at the blank screen and close the app. Over the past couple of weeks or so I haven’t gone through a full show without this happening. There’s even been times where I spend 5-10 minutes just trying to get past the opening ads because they never load and I have to keep closing the app. Its frustrating and I have no choice but to delete the app. I have no problems with ads. I do, however, have a problem with giving ad revenue (when it works) to broken apps
  • There is a Bug

    By itsoracaylove
    I have used Crunchyroll for a very long time and have never had any major problems. I went from having an Android phone to an IPhone when this switch happened, I went and redownloaded the app. When I try to log in or even make a new account with one of my separate emails it always brings up a message of “Incorrect login information” no matter what I put in differently or try. I have deleted the app and redownloaded it several times, but the issue keeps happening. I love Crunchyroll but can’t stand what is happening. I looked in app support but couldn’t find anything but pre-made questions..

  • I’m confused

    By Fett4420
    So I went on this app to find just one anime, but it wasn’t really on here, Soon a found a anime I heard of and REALLY wanted to watch it. But It wouldn’t let me, For some reason there was an Error. Any other animes on here just of infinity adds, I can never get to the anime.
  • Please read

    By Tucker1215
    I love Crunchyroll but I think there are a too many ads there should be an option to watch all the ads at the begging rather than split up
