Not a complaint, merely a suggestion...

On the main Crunchyroll.com home page, the middle third of it displays icons and text providing information (day of week, time of day) for all the simulcasts for the current season, but the shows do not appear to be displayed there in any kind of order that I can determine. it is neither alphabetical nor release date, nor does it even seem to be announcement order (which is presented on the /lineup page if you really want that).

If there is an order, it isn't all that helpful; I wind up scrolling up and down to try to find the day of the series I'm looking for.

There is already a separate page for simulcasts that is displayed alphabetically, so there would be no point to repeat that ordering.

There is the stripe on the side that does display the upcoming shows by day and time, but that only covers the next few days ahead, not a full week's "normal" schedule.

And I know about the /launchcalendar page grid, but that is difficult to read just text, which is sometimes not obvious which show out of 40+ it is naming, when all you might need is to see an icon list view of shows to watch out for, but for all seven days of a typical week, to help set up your queue, etc.

So I'm suggesting that possibly the (seemingly un-ordered) shows on the main page, which give the information of what day and time under the titles, might be made to start with some fixed day, like Saturday, or Sunday, or even Monday, and be ordered by the day/time they are released on CR for viewing.

As a side-thought, but not as important, you could possibly even add the upcoming show countdown to those icons and potentially re-use most of the space from that daily side-stripe instead; it is mostly duplicate information otherwise. That could make the main page wider/shorter and probably load faster and save bandwidth from displaying the icon/image/thumbnails in two places every time someone connects.

TL;DR Suggestion to display main page full simulcast icons by release day/time instead of (seemingly) random order.

It looks to me like the order is somewhat based on popularity and/or what staff/companies want pushed most.
