That is, with a subscription to CrunchyRoll, A portion of the money goes to the creators, and a portion goes to maintaining the site. But Is this money spread across all creators, or does the popularity of a show influence how much money the creators get from CrunchyRoll?

all our deals with content partners are revenue share. we contribute a majority to content partners.
we are the only major streaming service to revenue share subscription revenue (in addition to ad revenue). when a viewer watches more of a show, more of their subscription dollars will go towards that publisher based on minutes viewed... so watching more of your favorite shows directly contributes to what Japanese studios receive.

Many thanks. Let's just say there are some shows I don't want my money going to.
