That somewhat depends on your budget.

If you have to ask, then no, it's not worth it.

Decide for yourself, look for what you want, and decide on the content available

I would say yes.

That really depends on you. For $6.95 do you feel there is enough content you are interested in watching or reading with access to it immediately and without ads in resolutions up to 1080p. In the case manga, access to the back catalog ad free.

I've thought it was worth the money ever since the site went legit.. funny, I actually resisted joining for a while because I'd heard that it was a pirate site back in the day and worried it might still be one. But once I knew it was actually supporting the industry, I set up my payment plan.

As others have said, it really depends on both your personal budget and what there is on the site that interests you.

For me, the monthly cost isn't really an issue and I like to see things as soon as they are available. Plus, I like directly supporting CR because I like what they do. I also occasionally buy things on the CR store and so it's nice to have the store discount as well.

it's a legit way of supporting the anime industry, decide how important that is to you. it's not much, but it's something.

if you're strapped on funds, I would say you could still find a legal way to watch anime.

If you're asking that means you can afford it, so I won't even bother with snarky budget comments as some seem to have that covered

I've had both. Here's the catch.

Cons:
1.The site itself does not work better
2. you get no privacy options (with any membership)
3. your video can STILL be slow and hang up badly (depending upon multiple factors like connection speed).
4. The points you get for it mean absolutely nothing, nor do the badges, and you can still do 99% of the things you can do now (without it).
5. Your profile lacks more options such as Wallpaper and Leaderboard/Header options for beautification.

Pros:
1. no commercials
2. specialties where CONS (conventions) are concerned that-if you are going to these, DOES make it worth your money
3. discounted pricing + free shipping at the CR store.
4. on your profile you get to have Wallpaper and a Leaderboard/Header and a fancy little icon next to your name.

So, to wrap up, if you don't go to conventions and/or don't buy from the CR store REGULARLY and you don't mind commercials, nor do you mind not having a more 'fancy' profile page, then no, it's an absolute waste. Even for 6$ let alone $12

If, on the other hand, you do either purchase from the store a lot or go to conventions regularly, or you HATE ads, or/and you desire to have fancy wallpaper & Leaderboard, that icon next to your name, more points and badges, wish to support the site itself for no other reason than charity's sake...then yes, it's right for you.

I really like being able to access anime on my Apple TV, so to me the $7 is worth it. I also don't have traditional cable and just use CR, Netflix and a digital antenna. And no ads! $7 is cheap if you really think about it. You could easily spend that once at McDonald's.

I like being able to watch anime legally the day it comes out, so it's worth it for me. =P

Depends on what country you live in. If you are from the US or another country that gets a majority of licenses definitely, if not its debatable.
