Hey everyone! Before I ask what I got to ask, heres a little about me, just a tiny splash.

I've been using crunchyroll for MANY years, and when i got to the age of having a job, i purchased a recurring premium membership, and now, I've decided to indulge myself in the community of CR, i'm just not sure how or where to start. I have a few questions for you Veterans!

What can I do with my CR points?
Favorite anime? (if you can even decided which one is the best, i know i can't!)
Anyone want to offer me some general knowledge about crunchyroll outside of using the queue and watching anime XD?

CR Points? Not a damn thing as far as I know.

My favorite is Now and Then, Here and There but as far as some you can watch on Crunchyroll? Hunter x Hunter, Magi, Your Lie in April... The list goes on.

CR is a cool place with cool people. Be yourself and have fun.

edit: Oh yeah tourneys... they are fun, but can get really, really competitive.

Mainly in the Anime section. Shameless campaigning, backdoor deals, last second blowouts... Tourneys are entertaining but their main ingredient is salt. <salty people that is>

Here is an example of one. Each one has it's own rules and structure.

I heard there are a limited number of CR points, and whoever gets the most is crowned king/queen of CrunchyRoll.

Anyway, as far as anime goes, I'd say Kill La Kill, Black Lagoon, Madoka Magica, and RWBY (not sure if that's technically an anime though).

Not really sure much about community stuff though. I'm not extremely involved in it. I tend to just make the odd comment here in the forums.

I think it's pretty much a participation thing. Write reviews, post in the forums, etc etc.

Posting on the forums and watching stuff is one way. Although they can jump up by 1,000 for no reason whatsoever. I've given up on trying to figure it out.

Welcome to the social side of Crunchy!

There's a brief write up about CR points here: /forumtopic-806747/quick-answers-for-common-questions but for folks with premium or who already have more than 500 points the only extra privilege you get is bragging rights.

I don't choose all-time favorites, though sometimes I have a favorite or two each season. This season I'd guess I'd say Baby Steps season 2 is my favorite on Crunchyroll, and Assassination Classroom is my favorite not on Crunchyroll.

I like reading the forums, and don't actually do much else. The general knowledge I'd offer is to take notice of the different kinds of forums there are in each forum section, and when posting, choose the most appropriate one -- which often is not "General Discussion." Sometimes there are a couple different places something might fit. For example, this thread of yours might be a good "Chit Chat" topic but because you are also asking for info and advice, it's a good fit for the Advice, Info, Recommendstons forum ((where I've moved it.)

I'm the same. Been a CR member even before it was a paid site. Then when it went subscription only, paid for premium (since 2012 or 2013, forgot). Never really got into the forums or the social aspect until recently. Didn't know where to start either so just started answering forum stuff for a while here and there like this. You will eventually find like-minded individuals.

This season I'm into SNAFU too, Ore Monogatari, Rine-e, Yamada 7-nin no Majo.
