I don't think physical gift cards would work right now since I don't think Crunchyroll is big enough. Maybe online gift cards would be a good way to start and see how the public reacts to them.

maybe they just aren't quite popular enough yet and don't have the budget to risk making a ton of plastic cards and distributing them to see if it just works out, cause if it doesn't they will lose all that money it took to get the cards made and distributed.

I would think if they did do it though more people would be curious as to what it is

You're probably right. Would have loved to see them though (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜

yea in a way it would be like them advertising but i just don't think the budgets quite big enough but I'm sure one day they will, especially if threads like this get a ton of support

The real question is, is CR popular enough to be worth the hanger space on the wall?

This would make it easier to gift to friends then giving them a code online.

I'm an adult so the not being able to get my own premium isn't an issue, and wouldn't have been as a teen either since I could ask my parent's to use their card and pay them back. But yeah I do think I'd side with you on this one. It'd be great for more teens to be able to purchase premium on their own without having to do any of that sketchy "earn money online" crap. They are a big part of anime's target audience. CR already has had gift cards available but they had to be bought online as well. I think they did that for xmas last year or something if I remember right. The biggest issue I see about distributing them in stores would be that the demand actually isn't THAT high. I guess a test run would be appropriate to see how well they sell. It would be great if they let the cards be used in the Crunchy Store too. Definitely a selling point for those who already have premium or to give as gifts to any anime lover. EDIT: Wait... how long as the store been unavailable? I just noticed this... hm
