Hello everyone ~ !!! Hime-chan here!

Here at Crunchyroll, we give our free members access to more of our library than any other major video platform - but that wasn't enough for us!! We want everyone to get a taste of the incredible Summer Simulcasts, so we've made the first episode of every new show completely free to watch, in 1080p with NO ADS ~


Free users will even be able to watch the first episodes of simulcasts without waiting a week!

Free users normally watch Crunchyroll videos a week later than Premium Members, supported by advertisements and presented in standard definition. However! For every first episode of the Crunchyroll Summer Line-Up, free users will be able to watch ad-free in stunning 1080p, without having to wait at all. Now you can try out anime from Mob Psycho 100 to 91 Days with perfect quality before you commit to either Mob Psycho 100 or a Premium Membership (even though you'll definitely want to commit to both!).


Ahhh, that clean tracking bar is so pleasant!

Please let us know what you think - we love being able to do this sort of thing, and would love your feedback to help with future efforts!

But then I'll have to wait two weeks for the second episode if I don't get premium...

Unless that's the point

But it's nice to see what type of product you'd be paying for if you do get premium. That way people can judge if the bump in quality is worth it along with seeing if their computer/internet can handle the not so great CR player (it could be improved let's be honest) at HD quality.

but that also applies to the mobile and console apps that handle HD streams, and the new win10 app.... not just browser-based streaming...

Now everyone can check out Sweetness and Lightning. Anything that leads to more people getting to watch that show is good by me. And if they subscribe, the manga will be waiting for them, too.
