Since when did the billing cycle become 360 days on a year subscription? It says both a year and 12 months of which 360 days is not. Has it always been this way?

Yes, our 12 month plan has always been 12 instances of our monthly membership, which is 30 days.

That means that every year the bill arrives 5 days earlier than the year before.

It's always been that way. A CR "month" is 30 days. 12 CR months are 360 days, whether you pay (less total amount) all up front for 12 "months" together, or if you get charged one "month" at a time. Posters referring to a "yearly" plan in the forums will frequently call it "annual", but CR doesn't call it a "year" or even "annual" subscription anywhere official, they call it 12 "months" on the sign up page.

Here's the FAQ where they define a month as a 30 day billing cycle.

It's just the simplest way to manage it, rather than to try to bill for a partial month, 28 days for February, etc.

A 12 month cycle has 365-366 days depending on leap years. Regardless of where you start in the calendar.

Oh well.

The 360 day year is a thing in financial matters.
See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/360-day_calendar

Though that is not the justification or reason.
As has already been pointed out. It's a 12 month membership, not a 1 year membership. You pay for 12 30 day months there, not 365 days. (It is heavily discounted compared to a purchase of 12 single months as well.)

For argument sake, It indicates that days are skipped. (No real context or further information given!) Not that it matters.

Also, for some reason crunchyroll is just forwarding me my email to support back to me.
