I was wondering if anyone knows if there is meaning behind the name 'CrunchyRoll' because I can't see how it is related to anime and/or manga in anyway...

I remember one of the ambassdor in a panel mentioning that the origin of the name crunchyroll is something like this. Apparantly Crunchyroll or some kind of roll is popular in California and it is actually created by an american rather than japanese chef. So it is an american made food with inspiration from japan So like that roll, Crunchyroll try to be that website that is made in US but stuffs from Japan.

That panel is long time ago so i might get some detail wrong.

I've never heard of the origin of the name but always assumed it came from what Steffiekun said above. Seems like an apt name -- Japanese influence on Western culture.

Ask the founder of this website that.


As for me, I see it as thinking outside of a box.

In Canada we have a roll in every sushi joint called the "California Roll", and it isn't of Japanese origin, but it tastes like Japanese food.
