So I'm probably a bit late to the punch on this, but wow that Ad-Block popup is annoying.

Unless I'm mistaken, I couldn't find a way to click out of the video or do anything until it was done.

Considering it was only playing because I cleared cookies and was logged out, having to wait through an entire video guilt-tripping me for using Ad-Block and trying to push their Premium membership which I already pay for was incredibly annoying.

I understand the point of the video, but there really should be an option to log in while it plays so that people who already are paying money don't have to sit through an unskippable ad that says "You should give us money".

If there actually is a way to log in while the video plays and I just missed it, if someone could clue me in I'd appreciate it.

Maybe set this as a bookmark and go there first instead of going directly to the home page?

CR ain't the only site to implement that annoyance, I'm sorry to say.
Try the 'anti anti adblock' filter, there is one that's easily able to be googled. Not sure if it'll get rid of it entirely but it works for most of those annoying anti adblock frames.

You should not be seeing that one in first place as a paying member.
Maybe try whitelisting Crunchyroll in your ad-blocker add-on.

Why would AD BLOCK come up at all ? If you were logged in as a free user I could understand that . I like yo check the Infro out sometimes W/ o logging in which lets you see A PV only anyhow ! It should not do that unless logged in and then have AD bllocker as a free user.

You annoyed a paying customer ! There is enough other glitches going on w. p craeting a new one!

There's actually a way around for their "Anti-AdBlock". So you can still technically use it You just have to add a chrome extension.

To the website, you looked the same as a non-member, which is an opportunity to convert someone to a registered/paid membership, or at least allowing commercials to play in order for CR to earn that ad revenue. Why are you surprised?

So why don't eliminate the 2 MIN PV ?/ Really

I just log in for something that I want to check for v5 minutes and it is stupid You can say what you want it' Baka because now I have to waste more time !y a legit complaint !

Funimation you can get the EP infro / the video dont play but it is sure a lot easier if you just to check on the EP infro

And I am even more annoyed that people on thre Forum hwave to annoy a paynig customer more sometimes people shpulfd let customers have their say w/ o being ?? all the time ! Youare helpful but not in this instance when it not a video issue or important website issue !

I would appreciate that more. And yea I stiil believe the customer is right companies try to get away with so much nowadays !
