I would like to use the new Queue feature to manage ongoing shows I am following, but this is made harder by the fact that the list doesn't show what the latest available episode is, just the latest one I have watched.

Ideas for how to handle it:
1. Show episode number of latest available together with last seen
2. List a show with a different colour if there are unwatched episodes
3. Show "Next episode available in..." and then list either how long until the next episode becomes available, or "now" if it's already up

I think the shows that are listed as "Ongoing" should have their simulcast schedule listed as well, that'll help determine if there's likely anything new. As it is right now, I keep a separate tab open to ANN's "North America Stream List" posts to see the schedule.

I was thinking the same thing. My Queue would be much more useful if I was able to tell which shows had new episodes I had not watched. watched. In addition to the possibilities above, here are some other indicators that would work:

4. Title or Status could be bold when new unwatched episodes are available.
5. The Play button could read "New" instead of "Play".
6. An asterisk could be placed after the Last Watched status.

Please add some sort of inidcator that new episodes are available. It would make using Cruncyroll much easier for me.

What I do for now is to organize all my ongoing titles at the top, in order of their broadcast. That way, if I know the last one I watched, I just have to click on the next, and so on down the line until I get a countdown screen....
