Ok so if we sign up now we can get membership at a locked half off price?
But I don't always have money in the bank so if I cancel membership for a time and start it again...will I still have the half off price(I would guess I do but I want to make sure)

I'm happy to finally have a way to get subs quickly and legally. I have just a couple of questions:

1. Will there be a method of pre-paying for several Download To Own(DTO) episodes at once, instead of on an episode to episode basis?

2. If that method is available, would there be a slight discount? ie. $18USD for 10 episodes instead of $20USD, $35USD for 20 episodes instead of $40USD, etc.

3. Will DTO episodes be available without the anime membership?

4. If DTO episodes are available without an anime membership, will they be available within one hour of airing, or will there be a one week wait?

I would be happy if I could be pointed in the right direction to find these answers,
Thank You!






Hi Shinji, Same as Tekno_Cowboy, I want to know the details regarding Download To Own (DTO), Thanks.

Hi guys,

We've been receiving a lot of questions on exactly what the Anime Membership will be like, so I put this together to answer a few questions. There is also an FAQ you can check out.

What will the video quality be like?
It will be High Definition - Check out the sample here. Free accounts will have Standard Definition (like what's available now). Anime Members will have access to LQ, HQ, H264, 480P, and 720P, while normal users will only have LQ, HQ, and H264. Video quality depends on the source, but since we are getting it directly from the animation studios, it will be the best possible for new shows. Older shows from like 5-10 yrs ago may not have good quality videos.

When do we get to watch it?
The Anime Membership begins on Jan 8th. When it launched, Anime Members will get simulcast (access on same day it airs in Japan) for currently airing shows, while normal users get it later (currently 1 week later). For older episodes of currently airing shows (as well as older shows), we may release it on a schedule or all at once. We will have a release calendar (like a TV Guide) available soon!

Sub or dub?
All the shows will have English subtitles. Most will be soft subtitles, but may have hardsubs if softsubs aren't available. Subtitles will be provided professionally. We are currently exploring subtitles in other languages besides English.

Territory restrictions?
We try to get permission for worldwide broadcast (except for country of origin), but rights clearance is complicated! It will vary from country to country. We'll have a page with ALL the details soon! For example, Naruto Shippuden is worldwide except for Japan.

Downloads?
Not all videos will have DTO (download to own). Also, DTO is not covered by the Anime Membership and is a separate purchase. The Anime Membership is a subscription for high quality, early access, streaming.

What shows will you have for the Anime Membership?
We're currently putting together a list. Sorry it's taking so long~! We have to wait to announce certain things. But it looks like there will be roughly 150 titles available. If you have any suggestions on what you want to watch, just reply to this thread~!

What payment methods are available?
Credit card, Paypal, and postal snail mail. Also, for those of you who don't have money, you can get it for FREE (by taking like 2-3 surveys or signing up for things) We are currently exploring other methods like prepaid cards and things like PayByCash. If you have any other suggestions, let us know!

I will be posting more details when I can, hopefully in the next few days! Thanks guys


uhmmm... I did a couple of surveys today to see if it does work.
And my answer is "YES" :)
I made about $7+ bucks from it and now i bought myself an anime membership
You will notice that beside my username , you'll see a yellow star.
See it? see it? Cool right!? XD

This are my questions for Shinji [ Read Below ]
Can i take the same surveys I did today every month or over and over and over again?
Does the surveys run out or sumthing till there's no more surveys to fill out?

Does your account get upgraded immediately after you pay or is there a wait.

I really want to know what's going to happen to the music and dramas here......since right now you're only focusing on anime, then are they going to get deleted and this site become a purely anime website?

I m done with crunchyroll I m broke I don't got the money

clearly there are many people still unclear about this whole anime membership. personally, i'd like to think that your membership is all inclusive, meaning access to dramas, movies, music, not just animes! and i hope that this membership also gives crunchyroll the means to get licenses for the ones that weren't available before.

but the good part is, we can easily cancel our membership if it's, well, not worth it. as much as i love animes, i would like to think that my membership will give me privilege to watching my beloved doramas & jmovies once again!

Now that crunchyroll has a income in form of paying customers, will there be a bandwith upgrade? Right now its just painful to watch a 720p video.
