Sure beats downloading everything.

CR is convenient. Plus I can use my PS3 if I want.

Haven't quite been here 5 years yet, but closing in on it I joined after I was absolutely sure CR was legit, and immediately got a premium account that I've maintained ever since.

I'm satisfied so far. Most of the money goes towards licensing current shows, but some also goes to archive titles like Kenshin as well. Some also goes to hardware/networking services, some to marketing, and the rest towards employee salaries (engineers, translators, etc).

They often don't let us know what shows are coming up until very close to when they start airing - that's usually built into the streaming contract, though, not by CR choice. The publishers set those kinds of requirements. In the forums, you'll likely see a few threads every season asking when that season's shows will be listed.

I've been a member for a few months now and for the most part I'm satisfied, I'm just annoyed by how people in the UK, Like I am, Are getting the Shaft in regards to some shows...Well more one in particular. I kinda wish that we got Detective Conan here. And maybe if CR as a whole picked up Arc-V. They have all 4 others, so why not the current and what could be the best of the lot?

I'm pretty damn satisfied.

Its like $6.95 per month (the price of a fast food meal) for basic membership and you have access to a wide catalog of shows including manga.

I'm sure the money gets divided between purchasing rights to new anime's, and paying the Staff's salary.

For all site announcements, watch the middle of the front page, if you visit often. Otherwise starting about the last few days of June keep track here: /site-news and/or here /news for show announcements of when and what regions get something. It is also maintained on the /lineup page once the new season starts, but that lags the news articles somewhat.

They don't announce everything all at once, it sometimes takes as much as a couple weeks, so don't be discouraged if the show you wanted to see doesn't get listed right away.

I have been a premium member for 3+ years and I am very satisfied. For the price Crunchyroll has a lot of good contend, in my opinion you get a great value for the amount you spend.

It's convenient
for me and the money is insignificant.

Every convention I know CR is going to, I always have had the urge to throw them a gotcha question about the seemingly random video pausing even if you have amazingly fast internet. Not just me, but real life friends have told me about it (and it isn't a throttling issue as I have heard many complain about their player design). I didn't last time, but thanks for the 30 day pass for calling on me for a trivia question, though :3.

I've been thrilled by the service and have looked up "that one" article for a research project about where the funds go to, but it is nice to see it again from the mod. The player issue hasn't came up in a while and I forgot about it, but I'm thrilled that indeed, funds do go towards optimization (apparently) - so I guess the lack of the pausing could because they got their stuff together? I trust it is their hard work / our money that did it after so many years (then again, I could have just had a lucky few months).


About your specific question, on the right side of the main page they'll say what they have for the current season (they also reveal them in the news as they acquire / fill that page).
