Available in 1, 3, or 12-month plans


So sad that it seems the 3-month and 12-month were just temporary. I love buying and giving 12-month memberships to others and I was hoping this would stay beyond the holidays. Oh well.

This really sucks.

Just a note, sometimes people want to gift members for things like Birthdays that are not directly tied to the holidays...

Does anyone happen to have a 48 hpur premium code by chance? pm me if so, premiu would make my holiday!


Please don't use Site News for this sort of request. You can ask over in The Official Guest Pass Thread ("stickied" near the top of the Anime forum)

Can I purchase a 12 month and just use it for myself? Or is there a 12month option available for me to sub too?


You can purchase 12 month and use it for yourself -- just don't click "This is a gift" (or if you want the code emailed to you at something other than the address associated with your account, click "This is a gift" and put your other email in it.)

But there is a 12-month subscription option:

/premium_pick_plan?membership=premium shows all three options for regular Premium

/premium_pick_plan?membership=premiumplus shows all three options for Premium Plus


Thanks! I never noticed the 12months plan, now I feel stupid because that would've saved me quite a bit of money... Oh well, I'll just get it now and call it an early Christmas present to myself :P




Not your fault, the subscription part of the site has been broken for a long time. The 3 and 12 month options are buried behind the "skip free trial" navigation branch. If you've already used the trial or been paid member you'll never see it when you're logged in.

To get yourself a 3 or 12 month sub:

1) Log out
2) Go to http://www.crunchyroll.com
3) Go to "Compare Plans" under "Premium Memberships" at the botton of the page. (3rd column)
4) Click the appropriate "Skip the free trial" link under the "Choose Premium(+)" button.
5) Choose plan duration
6) Log in when prompted and complete payment info.

Yeah, I was about to buy someone a year-long gift subscription, but found that the shop is back to only having 1 month gifts. Not really interested in buying them twelve separate monthly gift subscriptions (which is significantly more expensive than a year-long subscription) and having to send them twelve separate codes to enter.

Yeah, the 3- and 12-month were just available for a short time pre-Christmas, and now we are back to the usual 1-month option only. I'm glad I bought two 12-months while they were available; I already gave one away but now I have one to spare to give away later as the mood strikes me.

Any idea why the Premium Membership gift cards aren't purchaseable from the store?
Even the one month cards are gone now...

I am a huge proponent of the Anime industry but I think that the site would be able to support that community much more if there were some changes. I think that new episodes ought to be released for free two weeks after the original release day, not one week. I for one as a consumer don't mind waiting one week in order to watch the show- but if I had to wait two weeks I'd much rather buy the membership. As for the benefits of becoming a member. I think that there ought to be more commercial breaks honestly (currently I just use them in order to get snacks); in addition to the commercial at the beginning and end of the video, the commercial after the opening song and the commercial before the ending song, I believe that having two commercials within the episode itself would prompt people to want to buy the Premium membership more. I have other ideas that I also think would help support the company and build the industry. A point system: everytime a member watches an anime epis ode they get one point for every minute watched. Once they get two thousand points they get a $20 certificate for Crunchyroll store items. Maybe they can save up their points to get something more expensive- but the most they can use for purchase using certificates is $80. Maybe Crunchyroll would offer digital petitions that can be signed and sent to the series animators (something to keep Crunchyroll unique). Perhaps item discounts in the store are only available to paying members. Also that members can add certain series to their wishlist, and when a new season comes out they receive a notification. On the info page for each series there would be a section that provides updates on the show (whether their are any sequels or prequels, whether their are any announcements for future seasons, and whether or not the show is on-going). Maybe those pages would also have a wikia like setup where members can browse character bios, back story on the show, etc. Maybe the website would also have a section for anime bands. Where you can view info and music for various openings and endings of anime shows as well as read about the bands themselves. Perhaps members would also be able to personalize how they view pages by using themes, rearranging page info, and setting backgrounds. Lastly I think that Crunchyroll should off far more anime and videos. I was surprised to see that many of my favorite animes are not available on the site. I often end up going to unreliable and virus-rigged sites in order to view my shows because they are unavailable on Crunchyroll. But I know for sure that these are still quite popular shows. Most of the time friends and I check Crunchyroll, etc. first to see whether or not they have the show, but then we usually give up. Classics like The Twelve Kingdoms, or shows like Venus Project Climax, Code Breaker, Soul Eater NOT, Owari No Seraph; Seraph of the End(!), Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple, Noragami Aragoto, etc. And movies are some of the mo st difficult to find safe sites for. Spirited Away, Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland, Kiki's Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, Children Who Chase Lost Voices, or The Princess and The Pilot. I hope the best for the company and the industry.

Sayounara.
