Hello, I was just wondering if it was possible to pay for a year's anime premium subscription up front and not in monthly installments?

Yes, when signing up, you can select the 12-month (360 days) plan (Anime-only is $59.95). If you can wait a couple weeks, CR usually has a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale with a yearly membership deal, which typically comes with a store gift card as well, so that's another option to look out for.

Yep.

One way to do it is buy yourself a 12-month Anime Membership Gift:

- http://www.crunchyroll.com/store/p/82552/Anime-Membership-Gift

Buy it and email it to yourself (or check your Order History and snag the activation link). 60 bucks for a years worth of commercial free 1080p anime.

Hope that helps.

Cheers.

That's the 28th of November, right?

Yep, that weekend (didn't notice you were in Ireland).

You're not the only one to have a problem with the week. Sometimes it disappears for some reason, but hopefully it can get fixed sooner rather than later. If you haven't looked before, a gift membership is the same cost as a normal 12-month subscription, but just doesn't have auto-renewal by default.

But I can't seem to find a way to have the normal membership charge me the full amount and not in installments over the year.

An annual repeating subscription?

For just Anime:
/premium_pick_plan?membership=anime

For All Access:
/premium_pick_plan?membership=combo

For Manga-only
/premium_pick_plan?membership=manga

I was under the impression that the normal anime membership plan charged you the money over the course of the year. Am I wrong?

Yes you were mistaken. Each plan charges once for the term of the plan, but it is a recurring charge at each term beginning. So, in your case, annual charges the full amount once per 360 days...

Do follow the link above and see what is there. It isn't obvious how to get to those pages unless you notice read some small print on the comparison page...
