I would like to know if Crunchyroll accept prepaid VISA cards.

Since I'm underage, I don't have the authority, without my parents permission, to open a bank account

If Crunchyroll does support prepaid VISA cards, would the account consistently pay out the amount due each month?

This part is important because it'd influence the amount of cards I would need to buy.

I'd rather not XXXXXXX anime anymore, since it's a pain and I want to support the anime industry.

I would also like to know if this website support all anime titles that are found on myanimelist.net.


Thanks in advance.

Being legal also means Crunchyroll can't simply take every anime series they know about, so no.

The titles that would be available to you are the ones you would find listed on this page:

I would think it's possible, but you should /contact customer support to see what they have to say about prepaid cards.

The way credit card payments (including prepaid cards) work is by the service hitting the card to request a withdrawal. So long as there are no discrepancies between the provided card information and there is a sufficient available balance on the card, the money is transferred from the card account to the merchant (in this case, CR). So it's up to you to make sure that the card is reloaded whenever the balance starts getting low.

It may be easiest to ask your parents to buy you a Gift Membership, then you wouldn't have to worry about credit/debit cards.

Just figured this out.

This can work with gift cards, prepaid, and even direct bank accounts. As long as the card is within the four institution of AmericanExpress, Visa, Discover, and MasterCard, you are good to go.

Have you tested this out?

I've contacted support in January and they told me they don't accept gift cards yet.

The gift card that I usually purchase for items online is vanilla visa.

My friend and I both watch anime through different means, and we'd like to be absolutely sure we aren't wasting 25 dollars before purchasing the card

Yes, I personally tested this out with an AmericanExpress gift card, and I have used a Vanilla One Visa gift card to make online transactions with Google Wallet.

The thing with the Vanilla is that you might need to call it in or register it online with a workable ZIP code. Additionally, Google Wallet will need a bit more info from it. Nevertheless, you should be rocking and a rolling after all the formalities.
