I noticed that the web page only remembers only the last 54 episodes I have watched. :-\ Not very helpful if I want to pick back up a series later after a few more episodes come out after having watched a bunch of other anime (I mean after a month or so). What will happen is that I fill up that list and then have to try out a few episodes to find my old place in the other series, which is annoying.

I propose that each episode page have an icon/indicator on weather or not I have watched this episode. Maybe even a check box over the preview icon or something to that effect. With Hulu, you can add shows to your queue and when you watch them they disappear so you can keep up that way. Also, Hulu has a MUCH longer history page as well, so even if I don't add it to my queue, I can still go back and take a look at what I have watched.

I experimented with the watchlist and it offers some of this functionality, but it seems it can't dig into my history, only keeping things up to date if I manually change the number or watch the anime AFTER adding it to the watchlist.

I would also like for the android mobile app to have the same capability to determine where I am in a series. Currently it has neither a history nor a watchlist. Going to eat with only my phone because I have crunchy Roll is a mixed blessing: yeah it works (the app), but I have to try a few different episodes before I can enjoy it. Again, just a notification on/near/over the episode icon would be a great at-a-glance way to handle this.

If there is another way to do what I am asking, feel free to jump in and let me know.

I'll see if time can be allocated to improving the Watch List/History so that it's easier to keep track.
