I'm the kind of user that enjoys re-watching specific scenes that I like, or putting an episode on in the background while working. I also enjoy showing other people anime, sometimes ones that I've watched recently myself.

It's INCREDIBLY frustrating when I hit "next episode" on my Roku while watching Bleach with a buddy who's never seen it, only to see a "Resume at 19:43?" screen pop up with a thumbnail of Hollow Ichigo smack dab in the middle of the screen. Didn't know that was gonna happen? Well, you do now.

I've tried to work around this with the web browser by clicking at the beginning of the episode, but there appears to be a timer of some sort. I'd prefer not to watch the same intro 8 times to rewind every episode.

If the functionality exists, it's not clear enough for me to find. At this point, I would settle with just being able to completely disable the "resume" feature.

I completely agree, other services like Netflix or HBO Go offer a few choices (like restart from beginning, resume, etc.) with the screen blacked out in the background, thus avoiding any potential spoilers. Would be really nice to see that functionality on all of Crunchyroll's apps (as well as the site).

Another feature that I would LOVE to see is the option to reset an entire series view status. I am one to go through and watch some of my favorite anime multiple times but needing to essentially "rewind" each episode is pretty terrible. Those of you that are old enough to remember renting VHS tapes from your local video store likely remember the "Be kind, rewind!" stickers/intros. Please, Crunchyroll, allow us to easily "rewind" our viewing for an entire series.

I am also in favor of this... before noticing this thread, I sent off a request to Crunchyroll support to see if either they could implement an option for me to do it myself or have them reset the view status.
