I would not judge by those things as most people just watch the anime without leaving likes, comments and reviews.

It will only die if Anime dies and that is not likely to happen anytime soon.


Yep. Pretty much this. Plus as others have stated, many posters are now back in school.

short answer: no

longer answer: If CR is dying then you wouldn't see many people on General Discussion either

Was Crunchyroll alive to begin with? Can a website be alive?
In order to be considered alive, something has to fulfill several criteria:
Living things are made of cells.
Living things obtain and use energy.
Living things grow and develop.
Living things reproduce.
Living things respond to their environment.
Living things adapt to their environment.

Crunchyroll is made of 1's and 0's and servers, not cells. So it fails the first criteria.
Crunchyroll's servers do obtain and use electricity, which is energy. So one could argue it fulfills the second criteria.
Crunchyroll has probably not biologically grown. I would imagine the servers are about the same size they have been since they got them.
Crunchyroll has, to my knowledge, not reproduced.
Crunchyroll's servers have probably not done much to their environment besides collect dust. If one yelled at them, I doubt they would react in any meaningful way.
Nor have the Crunchyroll servers adapted in any way I am aware of.

This leads me to conclude that Crunchyroll is not, and never has been, alive, and thus cannot actually die.

Don't forget there a lot of people who watch it that aren't members, so no, the site isn't dying out.

I've been a member of this site for a handful of years. I only became a member because I got tired of finding my anime each week in the list to check for new episodes. Not every posts comments tho, heck in the 3?? years I've been here I don't think I've posted a single statement in any video.

I wouldn't say it was dying out, I don't watch anime much anymore (only a few shows, but they're done, and even then....), but I used to watch anime on my TV before going to sleep (now I'm trying to catch up on Gotham :P)

Pretty sure it's just a really stale year overall. Wait for the next big show to come around and things'll start back up again. We haven't had a SAO, AOT, OPM show this year so it's pretty low overall.

I don't see anything wrong with Crunchyroll right now. I think it's fine for now because they still air the newest shows on the site. However I wish they could show some more old anime like Evangelion or Trigun...

It's a change in the way we consume and talk about tv shows, sports or anything else.
Everything has shifted towards social media.
Even if it might be easy to comment or like here on Crunchyroll, a lot of people don't do it.
Most message boards that might have been popular about 5 years ago are now either closed or very unactive,
a lot of discussions take now place on facebook,reddit or whatever. Doesn't mean that something is dying though.
