I DON'T KNOW IF THIS HAS BEEN ADDRESSED ALREADY AND I REALLY HOPE YOU CAN PICK MORE THAN ONE.

I SIGNED UP FOR CRUNCHYROLL BACK RIGHT AFTER AX13 AND LOVED CRUNCHYROLL BECAUSE IT WAS NOTHING BUT ANIME ALL THE TIME.

All of a sudden, the same kinds of ads that we see on Hulu are barraging the viewers with the same repetitive ads over and over again at every possible chance. I'm not paying for the service so that I get to watch numerous ads throughout my shows. NOR am I GOING to pay almost twice as much to be ad-free.

Crunchyroll is clearly taking steps to maximize profit, because having thousands and thousands of people paying for membership isn't enough income. Contact Crunchyroll and tell them what you think!

PLEASE VOICE YOUR OPINION AND WE CAN MAKE A CHANGE!

I think you can put up or put out.

if you pay for an anime access which costs like 7$ a month, you wouldn't have to watch ads in the videos.

can't believe some people. if you dont wanna pay that subscription fee, sit through the ads. those ads pay for the free anime. it's the least you can do to contribute to free legal anime streaming.



now i feel like a CR representative, they should hire me

Should've added another choice: "Caps lock make me scawy"

They are a bussiness and they need to make money. I don't think the monthly fee is high either so it's worth paying for it.

They use commercial so they can keep rolling in more titles and get more money.

Oh come off it. Everything for free these days has ads. THAT'S WHY IT'S FREE!!! It doesn't just pay for itself you know. Youtube does it and so do pretty much all the other streaming sites. I quite happily pay for my subscription because I know it IS worth it. I can say I am trying my best to help the industry and love watching it legally. You don't wanna help then don't. Your choice ultimately.

Hi I'm closing this for a couple of reasons.

1) It's a rant, disguised as a poll, and doesn't really foster discussion or present a reasonable set of choices. If you are genuinely interested in what other users think about Crunchyroll's ads, please present options in a less biased fashion. Your current choices, as worded, basically boil down to: "Crunchyroll is an evil poopyhead" and "I, the customer, am stupid." Surely there are possibilities in between.

2) If you want to give feedback to Crunchyroll the appropriate forum is the Suggestions / Feedback forum. Please present your concerns, in a civil fashion, there.

3) Your use of all caps (in effect yelling at all the users who are reading your poll and your post), is rude, and against the site rules.

However, I do understand you have some legitimate concerns, and some of what you wrote leads me to believe you might not fully understand the CR price structure. Maybe I can clear some of that up.

1) You are clearly upset by how repetitive the ads are (it sounds like this bothers you more than that there are ads at all). I have no idea if this is something CR can do anything about, but I guess it's possible they can or can at least let the folks placing the ads know that the repetition is irritating to the customers. This is something it would be reasonable for you to share in Suggestions / Feedback .

2) If you mostly just watch anime, then you don't need to pay $11.95 a month. The price for an anime-only membership is just 6.95 a month; less if you pay for a whole year at a time. (Also, while I don't know if CR is doing a special Black Friday membership deal this year, they have done so in the past, so you might want to wait and see if they do something special this year too). When you pay for an anime-only membership, you do not see any video ads when you are watching the anime!

Hope that helps.
