I haven't streamed on PC for a while now so I'm not sure if this is just limited to the PS3 app, but has anyone else noticed alot of political ads on CR videos recently?

And if you do, are they for Illinois in particular? I ask because I keep seeing adds for Illinois elections even though I live in New England and Crunchyroll HQ is in California, so it feels a bit unusual

Well, I'm a Premium Member so I'm not very sure but I don't think Crunchyroll really controls their ads.

Do you even Premium?

But yeah bring based in Cali you'd think it'd be Hillary ads for days. Weird... Are the ads for local races?

It probably depends on what state you're in. Sometimes I see things advertised for PA states on other sites.

I'm a premium member though...precisely for THIS reason

Fair point

Whenever my required textbooks don't cost 4 yearly memberships each I'll get back to you on that

Whoever pays I guess. Don't complain when you get free stuff.

Of course. It's no complaint. Just an observation.

I'm just wondering if enough Illinois voters use the sight for free and without adblock for the ads to be worthwhile, you know?

Haha, I don't know but Pandora does. It gives me these little snippets of things "we must do" next to a pic of him looking angryl:

"We must protect police!"
"We must secure our border!"
"We must defeat ISIS!"

Crunchyroll doesn't (maybe) control what ads you see. It is all random, just like Youtube. But also maybe base on what you search up/websites you visit.
