Okay, this is somewhat of a rant, but it's still a problem non the less.

So I don't have premium for a couple reasons, one I don't have the money to spare currently, and two, I don't trust most sites enough to consider attaching a credit card to them. Crunchyroll isn't an exception here. Seeing as I'm not paying for premium, I have no problem watching the ads, as it at least allows me to contribute somewhat to legal streaming.

Now then, 30 seconds, a minute, a minute and a half, I understand ads of this length, as they're the length of commercials you'd see on broadcast television, or any television for that matter. But when you have ads 10 minutes, 20 minutes, an hour, 12 hours long, that's getting a bit extreme. And well, recently, you've begun having these.

I understand that ad revenue helps to pay for liscenceing, and to pay the various other companies, but theres a limit to what should be considered acceptable.

So please, for pete's sake, actually think about what ads you allow to run on the site. Running ads of such extreme lengths, it's enough to make one consider using an adblocker to avoid them, which isn't good for the buisness in the slightest.

If you think there is a problematic ad, I would suggest reporting the details using the /contact form.

I will, but the problem is that currently, in a 23 minute episode, the total duration of the ad content is longer than the episode itself is. A 23 minute episode has three ad breaks in the middle of the episode, with at least three ads running per break, and two one ad bursts at the beginning and end of the video respectively. In each of the three breaks during the episode, you currently have at least one ad between 7 and ten minutes long, often more than one.
