I personally liked seeing how episodes I have watched so I know how many episodes I watched and which episode I have to watch next.
I have a big list I am watching and I won't be able to keep track of all that I am watching D: !!
This queue thing should keep similar features like the Watchlist so it can be convenient to use.

Stuff that I would like to see on the queue list is:

Info bout where I am in an Anime. For example: Bleach 3 / 334
Play latest episode aired button, Im guessing that is kinda what the thing is supposed to be all about though

Also as mentioned, a favorite thingy so we can ad series that are lincesed and/or dosent have any episodes here on CR anymore

EDIT: Realy realy agree with l33fluffy above!

I like the idea overall, but I'd really like some sort of indication when a show has unwatched episodes, rather than pressing "Play" and getting a "not yet released" page. As it stands, we actually have less information about this with the new queue page than with the old watchlist page.

Hulu's queue page is the gold standard here. I would think it wise to borrow some ideas as appropriate

Several others have voiced it already, but just to add my echo to it... I like the queue idea, but the lack of being able to tell which series have unwatched episodes is a deal-breaker. My current workflow is to click on Anime in the top navigation, then on Recently Added, and find the episodes of the things I'm watching that I haven't watched yet in there. This still requires me to remember where I left off, but it's easy to see newly-added episodes of everything that way. The queue needs some sort of indication on each series in the list of which episode was last-watched. My ideal "queue" display would be what you see on the Recently Added Anime page (with the thumbnails and popup episode descriptions and all) but listing only episodes I haven't watched in series that are in my queue. (And that's exactly what I want for a Queue page on my Android device, too)

More comment on Aug 10] Again, thanks for providing feedback. We have decided not to decommission Watchlist and Favorites any time soon. We do encourage you all to give My Queue a try and use this forum topic to give us more feedback, so we can make it better. We are already working on a few enhancements on My Queue and hope to roll them out in the next few days.


Thank goodness that you aren't getting rid of watchlist. & favorites. I don't plan to use queue, but I'll check it out on a later month.

And you might want to change the message that is shown on the Watchlist saying that it will be deleted, to no longer being deleted.

Nice feature.
But it seems to have Problems with Anime, which have PV Episodes ?
They allway start if I click the play button, instead of the newest unwatched episode.

@How I did it until now:
I opened the viewing history and looked up the last watched episode there.


EDIT:
Oh and I dont use the watchlist, since it doesnt remove completed shows.
How will the Queue handle it ?

The new queue is mostly nice, but it doesn't give you a simple readout of what episode in a series you are on. For example 4/24

Watchlist is one of my favorite things on the site.

Please don't decommission it!

The current queue is very bare bones on information but i like it so far makes catching up on series easy since it tracks how many episodes i have watched so far and just have to press the play option. Changes i want are:

1) a small pic of the series added to each series on my queue but keep the same small size each series currently takes up vertically
2)The ability to see how many episodes I have watched so far out of how many.
3)Between the play and remove function add a number of how many new episodes on current simulcast that have come out i have not yet watched so i can avoid any clicking play and getting a count down timer.

Agreed. Hulu's system is pretty good. I would like to see something similar to that here.

Honestly, the queue is more useful to me than the watchlist was, as I am mostly concerned with having a convenient way to play the next episode. On the queue page, I would think it makes more sense to place the "recently watched" section beneath the "queue" section, because if the show is ongoing and I'm watching it, I don't really need to see a history which shows the last episode of all the shows I'm watching when the queue will automatically take me to the next one.

Also, I completely agree that you should not decommission the Favorites list. I will keep every show I've watched in there, even if it wasn't on Crunchyroll because I don't want to forget them. I view that as a service you provide me that is completely separate from what I'm currently watching. You should enable me to either "copy" or "transfer" a series to my favorites. Some people might want it on there before it's over depending on how they use their favorites.

Going back to the queue itself, that page should have a toggle or combo (or list) box about whether and how to send me notifications about new episodes. Some people may even find it useful to have the ability to be notified about some series and not others. For some of us, a simple countdown clock on each title might suffice to inform us about upcoming episodes, instead of receiving notifications.

I like the queue, and it has a lot of potential. Please work on it a little and this could definitely become one of the best features anywhere online!

[Update on Aug 15] We have removed the decommission comment from Favorites and Watchlist. We have also added a few enhancements to My Queue. We will continue making improvements and encourage you all give My Queue a try. Roku users, queue is already added to the latest Roku app, which will be available once the app is approved by Roku.
