That's fine. I have no need for the service. Though thanks for the reply.

We do not have licenses to subtitle in Japanese. Subtitles are hardcoded on the apps for technical reasons. Many devices are simply not powerful enough to play content with soft subtitles reliably, or do not even support it.


That doesn't really sound right. Netflix and other streaming services all offer the ability to turn on and off subtitles on arguably more demanding videos as well, as all videos on this website are anime shows as TV ver. at 1080p max.

As this is one of the only websites to legally watch new shows in NA, it's quite disappointing to see the lack of a such essential functionality.

CR tried soft subtitles with the earliest version of the iOS app. It didn't work out well.

Hard coded subtitles overcome a number of potential problems, and given that CR has more important issues to address, don't expect a change any time soon.

Only a small minority of viewers don't want subtitles, so it is not "essential" functionality.
