Is there a way to view the full watch history of my account including the dates an episode was watched/finished or export it? I know you can view the recent history on the "Queue" page and can mouse hover over an episode to see when it was watched, but that only works on the most recent. If you click "more history" at the bottom of the page, the new results won't display the date watched.

I've been a member for 10 years and just wanted to look at everything I've watched and when. I would have to click "more history" thousands of times and even if my browser didn't force close it still wouldn't show the date. I know on sites like hulu you can view your entire history. Is that something that is possible on crunchyroll?

Or is there a way to export my entire history? Thanks for any help.

I've never found a way to do that here... Plus, if a show is removed, your history of watching it is removed, too (unless it comes back later). And even if you did press the "more history" button a bazillion times, any episode you watched more than once will only be shown for the last time you watched it.

I keep my history at Anime-Planet.com, where they have a "feed" that does just that. But I don't do it for the episode history so much as I do it to be able to mark entire shows watched, to keep track of progress (even if the show isn't here on CR), and to remind me when a new episode has become available, even if you watch elsewhere, such as Funi, Hulu, Netflix, etc.

/anime-news/2014/02/27-1/anime-planet-partners-with-crunchyroll-to-provide-in-depth-video-integration

There are also other listing sites like that, such as animenewsnetwork.com, myanimelist.net, kitsu.io (formerly hummingbird.me), and probably others.

Usually when I suggest this, people come back and say "But I want it integrated here". Well, I agree that would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath, and after a point, you can either decide to figure something else out, or do without.

Asharka,

Thanks for the info. I figured it was a long shot since there wasn't anything on the website giving the option of history/export. Tracking history on Anime-Planet or MyAnimeList makes me wish I could export it even more. That would allow me, like you, to show when I finished a show (not necessarily an episode).

I really was hoping there was some workaround. I tried using Simkl and while it imported my history it was only the most recent and it didn't show the exact date a show is finished/watched. I didn't know if there was some weird workaround like that, that someone had tried.

What stinks the most is that we know crunchyroll keeps track of the history b/c when you go to a show you haven't seen in a long time it shows the episodes you've watched. I wish that we could look at that history client side though.

Guess I'll have to give up on that idea. Thanks for your response though.

Looking through the HTML source of the History page, there are no references to any dates when things are watched. So it appears as if CR only tracks episodes that have been watched, and the order in which they were last viewed.
