Whenever I go to Crunchyroll with the address bar on chrome, it redirects me to an advert site and this happens literally EVERY time! Same result when I tried using incognito window, just fucking ads that sometimes can maliciously lock up the browser and forces me to either restart Chrome (if only the gods of fate allow and the planets align with a hard twelve of two dices, then this works) or just reboot the whole computer with the power button. This is really annoying, especially as I'm have a premium account and thus shouldn't have to deal with literally malicious adware that can ruin a day's worth of work on PC just because the browser gets bricked by an ad.

How do I access this site then? Why by googling the name and going through there like a fucking grandpa. HURGH I feel like I risk a hernia every time I forget that Crunchyroll might fuck over my computer if I access it through the address bar.... Seriously, this is high-tier bullshit. Fucking. Fix. It.

Make sure you are typing in the website correctly and including the www, if that doesn't help, then you've got something wrong with your browser. As I have checked numerous times without a single issue of ads coming up or redirect

Are you sure that you didn't maybe make a typo in the past and now when you start typing Chrome is automatically completing to go to that bad address which then redirects? If you actually keep typing to go to just the correct address it should work--just be careful to not automatically "enter" until you know you have the exact right url showing in the browser bar. If this is what is happening you should be able to to get rid of it by clearing history or something.

maybe your computer is infected with a redirect adware.
instructions of how to deal with adware from bleeoing computer
a simple scan with malwarebytes and adwcleaner (or other adware remover) will probably be enough. just make sure to update it before scanning.

Crunchyroll can't fix something that is a problem on your computer. The fact that you can Google the site, click on that link and get here is proof of that. Any redirection external to your system can't tell the difference between a clicked link and an entered URL.

You can also prove this to yourself by using another browser (Edge or Internet Explorer if you have Windows, Safari if you have a Mac), and making certain you type in the address correctly so that you don't get a munged address entered into autocomplete.

Apparently Chrome was being a total Whore-a-saurus Rex, made me feel like a tard as usual. writing WWW at the start fixed it and made me feel like a real tard. Golly jeez, now I can focus on bingewatching anime again and shitposting during breaks like usual...

And that was a completely deserved insult, the amount of crap something like this caused was amazing.

You dont need to type www. in front of crunchyroll.com You have a browser hijacker most likely. Probably a chrome extension causing some of your traffic to redirect.

in address bar type chrome://extensions
remove everything that you didn't put there on purpose.

If you didn't find an extension, you should probably consult with an IT professional or reset Windows if you don't have anything important .
