It says its not available. Nor can we just have me upgrade for her as its grayed out saying Not Available on mine. Is there any way to buy the person in question just 1 month of membership without the gift option?

They usually disable the gift memberships during special sales, like the one they had this holiday weekend, ending yesterday. I expect it won't be too much longer before the gift memberships shows up as available again.

So just check throughout the day then? Yeah but that disabling needs to be gotten rid of. Anime is all but unwatchable without a membership due to the ads being so frequent. The Play Store is full of complaints on the frequency of ads on episodes.

I agree completely. I can only assume some technical reasons, such as that whatever software they are using to manage the store doesn't allow them to simply exclude the gift membership from the "% off" sales, so they have to just make them not available at all. If I had a magic wand, there would always be gift memberships available in the store!

I hope they implement one soon. Trust me, I want to watch more anime here but with those ads, once my guest pass expires I can't be bothered dealing with those ads. I will gift her the membership soon. Thanks.
