This has just recently been happening and doesn't happen all the time. In fact, I've only seen this happen at night really (happened last night as well). I just managed to connect (finally), but at times it'll go through a never ending cycle of connecting. Then, it'll finally time out saying "Oops, we cannot connect to crunchyroll" or "this webpage is not available". I just tried reconnecting time and time again for about 10 min. and I got no where. Is something going on on your end? I'm able to browse the rest of the web just fine. My ISP is Comcast.

Edit: It just happened two more times. I contacted my ISP and they said everything is fine on my end. What is going on Crunchyroll? The hell is wrong with the website?

Timing out for me as well, ISP AT&T U-Verse not that has anything to do with the issue and I think a DDoS attack is in progress why else would CR suddenly have connection issues.

Dang it! What is going on? I lost connection to the website then tried reconnecting but wouldn't let me. Seems like I'm not the only having problems here. Is CR at fault here?

I could not connect for the past 15 minutes on any of my devices and this website seemed like it was down until just a few minutes ago. Was this a server crash or some scheduled down time?

Literally hundreds of reasons it could have happened.

Its not your ISP or anyone else but something wrong on CR's end and please quit blaming the ISP you have.

Perhaps it is related to the player upgrades and CDN changes that were planned to be completed in the first quarter (the end of which is rapidly approaching). If any work related to that required site interruptions, it would make sense to do them late at night (at least for the bulk of CR's viewership, given that it would be daytime and evening in other places in the world).


For those that ever wonder if a site being non-responsive is just on their end for everyone, here is a simple useful website:

Well think about it since it was effecting all services of CR it had to be no other then a DDoS Attack it makes the most sense. I wouldn't be surprised if the DDoS Attacks are people angry at CR for the issues that have been ongoing for over a year now.

No, more likely it's a group like Anonymous that hates the idea of paying for anime.
