This site has way too many problems. I previously typed a long, semi-angry rant on here when I got yet another error screen from trying to watch a show, but Crunchyroll decided to drive my point home for me because when I posted the topic, the site crashed.

The moral of that long rant was: Pay for online streaming content to support the industry (Crunchyroll, Hulu, Netflix, AnimeStrike on Amazon,--fuck Funimation and their 2 episode previews, greedy whores--), then go watch everything on [Illegal Site] .

Seriously, I only watch shows on here because it's easy to navigate, there's a fun little comment box at the bottom (even though it doesn't have notifications), and the viewing window has a "next" button. I only pay for the 1080p. Not much of a hook, especially considering the site has sooo many technical issues. But I'll continue my membership because I love Anime and it's the only thing I can do to keep them churning out those addicting shows! Though, sometimes it really is frustrating to be a fan.

Crunchyroll is experiencing technical issues due to... wanting to force as many current crunchyroll users to create an account on VRV

CR goes down due to too many people streaming dragon ball super.
the issue will be fixed as soon as dragon ball super finishes airing. maybe.

One of those hasn't existed since a couple of days ago:

Pay for everything expect funimation due to how they do their free service??. Is a odd thing to say.
Also why did you make the same post yet again only 2 hours ago? Another thing don't mention the names of piracy sites as they will be reported and edited out anyway.

No clue if it's actual people attempting to watch shows like dragon ball super etc or someone doing a DDoS to get people such as your self jimmies rustled. Or a mixture of both.
Seems odd that unrelated legal anime sites which have Dragon ball super also crash at the same time each week. Maybe Dragon ball super is just that popular though. (though the site doesn't crash when they add 13 or so episodes of it dubbed.)
If it's people doing DDoS then they want you to go to pirated sites as that is however they make their money. "Well this sites works here have some money" type of thing. So it's in their interest to cause the most amount of people to get crabby. So Saturday night in the US would be the perfect time for it.

'leilasdad' nothing to do with VRV as it crashes for everyone even those outside of the US and VRV only serves the US at this stage. VRV is set up differently so the crashes doesn't affect it hence why people get asked to go there. (yes lacks apps etc etc. but IMO it's better then nothing.)

Anyway too hot to be in my entertainment room so I'm going to go get a drinky and watch tv in another room. (stupid summer weather)

VRV has apps for several platforms, just not as many as CR: https://help.vrv.co/hc/en-us/articles/218030643-What-platforms-can-I-watch-VRV-on-.
