This is my first time on Crunchy Roll. The first anime series I watched - Hunter X Hunter on this website. I loved reading the comments. I finished watching the last episode today. These last few episodes were very emotional and I really wanted to read the comments section. I am very disappointed that this feature is not working.

this is a least the third time since joining CR that the comments have been disabled, it happens at least once a year on a Thursday or Friday and are usually fixed by Monday, it is never mentioned why

This has happened multiple times before with no explanations or notifcations about it.

I can't remember how long the comments have been down before, but this is ridiculous that they've been down for over 2 days :/

It's really annoying.

Not only is commenting disabled for me (I've got a premium account as well), but I can't play any videos. Everything I try just causes my web browser to freeze, no matter which browser I try on.

If this has been going on for almost a day, I'm really disappointed CR didn't send an email notification out regarding the issue, especially to their premium customers. I've been debating a lot recently whether the premium account is worth paying for, and this issue is just another indicator that maybe I should stop giving CR my money.


I'm having a similar issue where i cant select higher resolution on older videos and only get 2mins of the new ones. it redirects me to become a member then tells me i can't as im already a member lol. CR Fix your bugs please before you send out updates.









Did Crunchyroll resolve this for you yet? The same thing happened to me when I bought a 1 month membership and activated a 2 day code at the same time. The 2 day code running out disabled the premium benefits but it still recognized I purchased one in my order history and when i tried to buy another. I sent a support ticket but that was taking too slow so I opened a thread and a Crunchyroll admin fixed it for me right away. Got a few days gifted to me too.

this has happened before.. but i wish i knew why.. it's not just new videos, it's all videos..

i'd imagine they had an error with the comments section or are updating them, again.. whatever the reason it should be back within the next few days..

Idk if I should write this on here, but if I had to guess they're most likely updating the commenting software. I wrote them a while back (feels almost like 6 months actually) about bugs in their commenting software (exclusive to the video comments, not on the forum) that allowed people to delete any comment, pin and unpin spoiler alerts of any comment, and like/unlike any comment as many times as you'd want.

If someone wished to be malicious, it would take someone experienced minutes to write code to use this. They quickly fixed it so you couldn't delete other people comments but they left the spoiler and likes open. (The delete would have been most malicous, as a simple loop could've deleted every single comment ever made.)

As for the DDOS, I find that very unlikely as posting comments, making them spoilers, and like/disliking could hardly use enough bandwidth to slow down crunchyroll a video streaming service.

Back to the theory that they're updating the software, when I was reading the code (client-side obviously) for commenting I found this comment on several unused functions - "//Note: some of these functions are untested. need to convert some more views to jquery before we can test."

Judging from the functions and what I remember to have been there, looks like eventually we can expect emojis (same ones as on the forum), maybe captchas (never seen a captcha personally but is placed on the page if the server deems it necessary apparently), and the ability to delete just your comment or your comment and the children. (Of course, you'll be able to revive both your comment and the children as well if you choose.)

Lastly, to the mods/crunchyroll, I apologize in advance if I'm posting any information that you do not want available. I post this only with the intent to provide an explanation which is at best a guess. I also would wish to note that while reading the code, I did not make any "attempt to decipher, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any of the software used to provide the Site or Services" If I have misunderstood the Terms of Service, please contact me.

Hmm, I'm glad I'm not the only one. After a couple days of no comments I finally looked to forums to see if it was happening to everyone.
I really wish they would have officially told us just so we aren't sitting around wondering what the heck is going on XD, especially if you are new to the site (like me).

Yeah its kind of annoying and its been going on for MONTHS.

For shounen shows it doesnt really bother me but for comedy shows, those top comments were gold.
Id really like to read the top comments of Punch Line, Food Wars and Gintama.

Reading Gintama comments made me like the anime even more because of the fan-base so it kinda sucks I cant read them now




They could have started off on other web sites (like netflix) then moved to crunchyroll once they knew about it.
You can totally down a good 30+ episodes of HunterXHunter in a day too cause its just that good to watch
