Same price for one year when you buy it on Crunchyroll, it's more expensive if you pay month to month.

If you purchase a 12 month anime or drama membership on the website, it is $10 less ($59.95).

How does it work out price-wise? Does it cost just as much to buy it yourself through the website, each month?

Also, is the website not working for anyone else?

Oh, one question, though - am I right that that the cards would just be for an Anime or Drama membership, not All-Access? If so, it would be nice if you'd add an All-Access version at some point, because that's what I'd be asking for.


i think premium means all access


nope I think you have to pick between the anime or drama and upgrade later.


Actually, the gift cards are only available for Anime Memberships at the moment, but we will definitely consider making more variants depending on demand.

Via the website:
3 months = $19.95
12 months = $59.95

Via the card:
3 months = $24.95
12 months = $69.95

AFAIK, the "old" method of gifting a membership electronically still results in being charged the website price.

I'm not certain why the price difference. If it were simply due to having to do with handling and shipping a physical product, I would expect the premium to be the same regardless of membership length.

I hope this doesn't mean CR is planning on raising membership pricing (or at least cutting the longer term membership discount), and is simply getting ahead of that with the cards. I doubt that, however, as I don't believe the cards state any denomination, so the pricing on them could be changed any time.

It could be that CR has plans to introduce these at retail, which would necessitate giving a cut to the retailer. Adding a premium to the normal price allows them to do that without collecting (much) less money themselves.

Either way, the extra $10 seems to make these memberships kind of redundant. Im obviously going to do the online method for myself and I could just give my friend $60 to spend on the membership if thats what they wanted...

I guess it's nice to receive a physical card, but still. I mean, xbox live memberships can be bought online or physically in store, for the same price (sometimes it's even cheaper to buy the card in-store). Therefore, it's just down to personal convenience where you buy it.

Don't get me wrong, I understand why there is a price difference and I definitely think this is a great step for CR to take. But right now, I just think the extra $10 makes it a pointless option... Unless im missing something.

It'd be awesome if they were available in stores! Hopefully soon If they did that, then CR's memberships will skyrocket, especially since a lot of teens want a membership but their parents refuse to use CCs online.
