I mostly use Crunchyroll on my PS3 (I am not sure how it is on other platforms) and one thing thats frustrating for me is that if I want to watch the next episode of something then I need to find it in my queue.

History is TOTALLY useless as it only lets me play episodes I've already watched but not the next unwatched episode. It's also a nuisance to sort through my queue for something since its full of things to be watched.

My suggestion is to either make an option to watch the next episode in the History section (such as "Press R2 to watch the next episode!") or to add an entire new section that offers you your Recent History but when you click on it, it brings up the list of episodes (similar to how Netflix does it).

If thats not clear, I think History is useless, we need it to show our recently watched shows with all of the episodes to choose from, not just the most recent episode you already watched.

History is only meant to show what you've watched in the past, and queue is meant to play the next episode of shows you are watching/plan to watch.

I'm not even sure how queue is organized but it's not helpful at all. I use queue to save things that I want to watch one day but it is often that the things I am actually watching are in the middle or at the end of the list. It would be great if queue at least organized it by the most recently watched shows rather than (I assume) the order that you added them to the queue.

I guess what I'm saying is netflix has it right and crunchy roll has it wrong.

I don't care what the last episode is that I watched, I want to watch the next one.

On Netflix I have "My List" which is basically the queue, but then there is also "Continue Watching" where I can pick up at the next episode of the most recent show watched. I just don't have any use for Crunchy Roll's "History" section and think it could be repurposed.

You can organize it however you choose to.

There are two controls to the left of each show icon to move the order around in /home/queue :

An "up arrow" pops a show to the top.
Two vertical rows of dots allow you to drag and drop a show to a different position.

The only thing I keep in my queue are the simulcasts I am watching and maybe one or two catalog titles I am active on.

To track the rest, I use anime-planet.com to have "want to watch", "Watched", "Dropped", etc. I don't clutter the queue with those.

Thank you, this definitely helps, I never use crunchy roll on my computer so I didn't know that the queue could be rearranged like this
