Horror ads, like the Insidious one floating around on crunchyroll right now, tend to have jump scares. Which give me panic attacks. Is there any way to disable or skip these ads specifically?

I don't mind the rest of them, as I understand that's how crunchyroll makes money and all, but there should be some way to get rid of these! The worst part is that they show up onice the show's already started, often making watch another ad or two before they show up and I have to reload the entire episode.

Well, they're kind of... Loud. I mean, I can yank my headphones out, but that damages them. I've been basically throwing my iPad out of sight until I'm sure it's over, but that gets really annoying, really fast.

You should look up something to get rid of that.. I can't tell you though.

Take note that the OP is using an iPad (and CR's app), not a PC with a web browser.

Spoofers?

Oh, and update: I watched an entire episode filled with the exact same Toyota ad over and over (I honestly have no idea), then had a few more in which the Insidious ad would appear once or twice per episode, and now I'm getting that "Whispers" ad really frequently.

A bit off-topic, but it has to be said- what's up with some of these ads? Do they really think watching anime is going to put me in the mood to buy a car? And for that matter, why is an ad for Juicy Juice followed by an ad for a horror movie followed by an ad for "Yours and Mine"?! Gah, it makes no sense!

Thanks for the feedback about that particular ad. I've forwarded it to the people in charge.

Horror ads suck and take away significantly from any viewing pleasure. It's especially awful for those with heart problems. The other ads are fine and some of them I like seeing (the adoption ones for the kids/pets are cool) but horror ones make me turn off my TV all the time. Please get rid of them!

Can you name any particular ones? Are there any in the rotation right now?

I dunno what it's called since I only saw it once (I turn off the tv). It features kids visiting grandparents or something? I think it's called "The Visit"?
