So I'm on the 14 day free trial thing but there isn't a lot of anime or drama in it. I was just wondering if you guys think The monthly membership is worth it?

You can get the best deal during Black Friday weekend (Thanksgiving weekend; end of November). For the past 3 years, an ALL ACCESS Membership has been $50! I don't watch the drama (don't have time, not interested, etc), but it's cheaper than the Anime only membership. I prefer a yearly membership because I don't have to worry about it popping up at a bad time. Monthly wouldn't work for me. So the next time November comes around, I suggest you "bite" on getting a membership then. Something you should know: a "yearly" membership is 360 days so you will have a few days WITHOUT a membership, but in my case, I have a huge physical backlog of shows that I work on instead. Anyway, if you have the funds, Black Friday weekend has been the best time to get the membership. It will default to "auto renewal" but it's easy to turn it off so you don't have to pay the full price ($100) for an all-access membership. Obviously, you can do it every year it's offered, just remember to turn off the auto renewal.

Well, the only time I've used a premium membership is when I've had a guest past or this current 14 free day trial thing.
From previous experience I'd say it's very good for the whole watching anime in HD with reliable subs n stuff, that and there's no adverts. But I don't think I'd pay for it personally...

It's only because I don't watch a lot of anime so I wouldn't really get my money's worth out of it, but if you do watch a lot of anime or drama then I would say it was worth it. It all depends on an individual basis me thinks :).

It is fun to play around with profile skins though :3

Depends on where you live. If you're outside America, you might not find the Premium membership worth it (due to licensing restrictions there is less anime/drama available). If you're an American, CR premium has:

- A reasonable amount of "newer" anime to choose from each season.
- Commercial free.
- Higher quality streams (480P, 720P, 1080P).
- Subbed anime hours/minutes after it has been broadcast (no waiting days/weeks)

I prefer commercials in my streams, so I usually don't pay for the Premium membership (14-day freebie, atm). Also, I generally watch shows when they're complete as I tend to marathon every series instead of watching each episode as it comes out.

I'm on an ongoing 3 month plan. I don't want to cancel it early, but I keep forgetting! but its not much and I do enjoy the 1080p HD videos and streaming from my ps3 roku ect... So yeah?!? I think its worth it. Plus you get deals from the CR store. I just bought my first merchandise, a Crunchyroll shirt for 4.99, should be free considering I've been a member since 07!!!

Yeah, yeah....we all know the 1080P story as it has been beaten to death. I merely listed off the choices without commentary.

It's worth it if you watch enough Anime/Drama on a regular basis. And, I admit, I like the nice star next to my name haha

I dont watch much anime here on CR, but considering i get to support the anime business, and it costs less than what i use for lunch money each day, its without a doubt worth it. If so many animes werent unavailable in my region it would be great, but im very satisfied with it even without that.

Buying an annual (anime-only instead of full-access) membership (even if not on Black Friday) brings the cost down to $5 per month, which is a small price to pay to not have commercials (or ads in the web forum), especially if you watch any of the "shorts". It would be unbearable for me to watch those otherwise. There are even a few shows you can't see without a membership, or at least not all of the episodes right away, usually back catalog additions, such as (currently) Arakawa Under the Bridge, and just a little less recently, Our Home's Fox Deity. Those get released slowly. But perhaps more to the point, a membership supports the industry, so that helps to keep getting more new shows produced. And, the more members CR gets, the more likelihood there is that they will be able to license more of those shows, and the more influence they will be liable to have in opening access even further. Money talks...

You had the bad luck to start your 14-day trial at the end of the winter season and before the beginning of the spring season. A bunch of simulcasts had their last episode last week, leaving the calendar pretty empty. Also, this winter mostly sucked production-wise.

There are two major benefits to buying CR premium membership and they start and end with streaming to your TV. Sure, you can watch other ongoing animes fansubbed and ad-free on other sites, or download torrents, etc. But CR is legal and reliable, and you can watch on your television without downloading sketchy files and routing them through a media server.

I have opted out of cable tv service (which costs about $70/month) and stream CR, Hulu, and Netflix for less than $20/month for all three, about half of what I spend on coffee. I also got in on the Black Friday deal, buying a year's premium membership for both anime and drama for $50, which is roughly $4.17/month. Totally worth it for me.
