yes until Highschool DxD 3 comes out. I don't want to pay for funimation and crunchy at the same time thats a waste. I can't watch that much. Im not a traitor. I just think it would be a waist and if don't watch Highschool DxD 3 i might as well rip my man card in half.

I live in Australia, so there are far fewer shows licensed in my region on Crunchyroll than if I were in the US. At the start of every season when the new shows are revealed, I always have a bit of a whinge because so many of them are not licensed here & I'm forced to watch them elsewhere. But I still think my subscription to CR is worth it because 1) I am, in my own small way, supporting the industry - I get tired of the 'gimme' attitude where everyone thinks they should get everything for free. It devalues & trivialises all the work that goes into making anime. If the industry is continually sent the message that no-one values their work enough to pay what it's worth, why would they continue to put in the effort? I'm sure you'd be incensed if you were told your work was worthless! 2) The CR community:- I have never been big on forums & the like, but I do enjoy them on CR; when I want to talk to someone about anime, or see what other fans think, I like to be able to have an intelligent exchange with like-minded people rather than hear complaints from a horny 12yo about the censor blotting out his oppai!! (Maybe that's why I've never liked forums!!) On CR I can do this, and nobody has ever laughed at my ignorance or shown me any hostility (well, not to my face!!) 3) It's less than $7 for God's sake!! It's not gonna break the bank!!
Sure, it'd be nice if CR had everything I wanted all the time & still only cost 2 cups of coffee (and with all that manga now too!), but what world are you living in? Life is full of compromises!! If it's not good enough for you, go elsewhere; otherwise be thoughtful, be thankful & sit back & enjoy the show!!

If you live outside of the U.S. maybe not,this is due to licensing restrictions.

Chrunchyroll? Nah, it's a rip off. Don't do it.

Crunchyroll, on the other hand....

This site keeps track of all the anime you watch, that is more than good enough for a reason for me to be here. Plus I use adblock so it is a win win situation

I am in New Zealand, and there are a lot of shows on here I can't access. But I discovered Hola! through Google Chrome and can now watch things only available to US viewers! There is also Anime Lab for Australia and New Zealand which has Blue Exorcist on it, is completely free and has some dubs available as well as subs. Not sure how that'd work for someone in the US (or wherever you are located) but Hola! may also work for that since it lets you browse other countries' websites.

Crunchyroll will ALWAYS be worth it. I've met such lovely Friends here, and it's My Internet "Home-away-from-Home!" And of COURSE the Anime is ALWAYS worth it as well.

I love My Crunchyroll!

Crunchyroll is good for friends.

If you live in certain places its great for anime, buuuut... If you live somewhere where your region isn't supported you're probably better off watching anime elsewhere.

I agree that there are many cool anime that should be on Crunchyroll by now, but keep in mind that Crunchyroll keeps growing every single day, and whenever they get enough money, they tend to buy licenses to some pretty fancy anime out there. Also, if you're a user of Google Chrome and want to be able to see all the anime on here, just download this extension. It's like a VPN, except you don't need to set anything up. Download it, and you'll be crunching the roll 100%. Anyway, just enjoy your stay, and watch how the community along with the list of watchable anime keeps growing. I'm sure you won't regret it.

Hope this answer somehow enlightened you as to why you should stay. Cya!
