Currently the site will load the next video in a series automatically if available but it goes out of full screen to do so unlike netflix where it stays in full screen to load the next video. It not a huge deal for regular length anime but after watching a few series on netflix now that they have subbed version available I realized how convenient that feature is when watching a bunch of episodes of an anime series you can zone off and relax more fully there when watching then on CR that's broken a bit because you have to move the mouse and click full screen after each and every episode. Yeah First World Problems I know but every other way to view CR works this way the web player is the odd man out here.

Last I official response I heard it was suppose to have been passed on the development team by Bjaker back in late July any status updates on is this being worked and on and if it so when it will be added? Also I before someone suggests it I do know about the google chrome extension and have tried it but it doesn't offer true full screen and that annoys me more then having to click to get full screen after each episode so I uninstalled it and chrome. Even if it worked perfectly its not an acceptable long term solution this should be a standard feature on the web player regardless of what web browser you use like it is every other device you can view Crunchyroll on.

Keep in mind Netflix on the PC (unless you are running it in IE on Windows 8.1) uses Silverlight, while CR uses Flash, so the rules that apply are different.

Flash doesn't allow an application to promote itself to full screen. (This is a security feature). The best solution would probably be to load the next video into the same frame, much as they do with the commercials for free users. (I believe this is the same technique YouTube uses). If they chose that route, you probably won't see it until they update the player next year.
