I searched for a topic and it was from 2010 and it was locked, so am I to assume that CR aren't interested in legitimate issues with the adverts on their free membership plan?

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-603105/feedback-double-advertisement is the topic.

The exact same issues mentioned in the 2010 topic are still happening. Adverts repeating straight after they've just been shown. Putting adverts between the last few seconds of the show and the ending song. Putting adverts that interrupt the opening song, and so on.

I have no problem with adverts, but seeing the same one over and over is really annoying. Especially if it's repeated two or three times in one advert slot in a show. A variety in the adverts shown would be nice, and to not interrupt the last few seconds of a show and the opening song would be greatly appreciated.

The pool of ads for some regions may be limited, so there's a chance that a the same ad repeats multiple times.

Let us know for which episodes the opening song is interrupted by ads, we can fix the timing if necessary.

Ads repeating is not generally an issue, given the "free" membership we have. However, Mazda's ad running consecutively is now causing video (and not audio) lag in the subsequent anime videos. Now that's annoying.

I'm having the same issue. By the third time the set of four Mazda ads run the video is unwatchable since the image stutters so much.

Same ads repeating over and over and over, tree times every ad time, five times every episode, I'm sorry but THIS IS HARRASMENT, that's why I stopped using crunchuroll. Why not use a random ad protocol?

I'm seeing this on my Roku as well. It says "Ad 1 of 1" and repeats the ad 3 times, and just had it interrupt the last 10 seconds of RWBY to show the same ad again, then continued the show, only to go to the next episode and trigger another set of ads...

As a free user, I'll accept some ads, but if this repetition goes on too long, I'll be looking into the methods of blocking the ads entirely on my network.
