Heya, I know this idea might have been suggested before but I tried using the search function if its been suggested but it seems like I didn't see any topics about it or I typed the wrong thing in the search area.

Anyway, I would like suggest to add a "Light Off/On" feature on the Video Playback for Premium members or Free for all. I know this idea has been being used on other websites but I think it will be a good idea to help the members enjoy their anime or drama with a proper dark coloured area around or outside the video player instead of the "white" background of Crunchyroll, since not a lot of people watch their anime or drama at full screen.

This idea will also help think that user are actually feeling like that they are watching their anime/drama/movie in a movie theatre due to this feature.

If you think this idea is not really a good idea then feel free to say why and this idea is purely about my opinion on how to improve the entertainment on Crunchyroll.

Wouldn't watching the videos in full screen make this a moot point?

Do a lot of people really not watch their videos in full screen?

I've seen this feature at other sites (i.e., Funimation, Hulu), so apparently there is a call for it.

The only reason I can think of someone wanting this is if they were multi-tasking, unless your other windows also were dark, I don't see how it would help in such a situation. Also, with subtitled anime, dividing your attention would seem to mean something was suffering (either your appreciation of the anime or whatever other task you were doing).

Please implement this feature soon.

Also, I think it was mentioned in the Suggestions Sticky, it was named differently though, so they might be on their way on doing it.
