This only really regards the apps as they aren't used in a browser. Also, it would be mainly for premium users...

DRM

Yes. That's right. DRM (Digital Rights Management) content could be the solution to our problem. By applying a form of DRM to the videos and downloading them to our device through the Crunchyroll app, it would be stored on the device and would therefore be available for offline viewing. It would also give people more of an inscentive to buy the premium membership.

Offline viewing is something that should have already been implemented into the mobile app as people would use it on things like Planes and Trains where there isn't any internet. Maybe if this topic gets enough attention, the devs at Crunchyroll will implement such a feature

If you know a Crunchyroll developer, PLEASE share this topic with him/her because that way, they will know about it sooner

They could use a system similar to youtube red offine viewing (or two to three years ago simply youtube watch later list').

this would only be implemented if CR got the rights to do so. the copyright owners would need to sign the "go-ahead" to let CR offer offline content. considering how long people asked for html 5, and how CR never budged even one bit, it's pretty evident how likely this suggestion will be taken by the staff and relevant parties.
