I'm having the same thing happen to me just started at the beginning of the month also it ate over 9 gb of data on my phone in a few days time. Then my data rolled over so I tested it today to see how much data it will use, stopped playing 30 seconds into the video it started buffering so i closed it. End up using over 100 mb in 30 seconds. Watch Netflix for over 20 minutes and it only used 118 mb.... so not sure what is going on here

Implying that my phone LTE works with every other app but this one, but they somehow only have issues with this app and no other streaming app whatsoever? And only in the past few weeks after functioning perfectly for more than a year? Seems unlikely.

One could also say it is unlikely that the app would suddenly develop an internal problem that would only affect streaming via LTE.

If you had another phone or device on the same carrier with hotspot capability, it would be easy to determine which theory is the correct one.

I have a short time solution for Android users. It is an older version of the crunchyroll app that doesn't have the issue for me. Just uninstall the current version and then install this apk file: http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/ellation-inc/crunchyroll/crunchyroll-2-0-8-release/crunchyroll-2-0-8-android-apk-download/download/
If anyone is scared about viruses I can upload a Dropbox version.
I hope it will help some of you.

This is my link to the same file but from my Dropbox:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/721hqxm3vsvd8gm/com.crunchyroll.version%202.0.8.apk?dl=0

Hopefully anyone have any use of it.
Goodluck everyone on finding a solution.

Have the same problem when I use the app on my PlayStation 4. Video buffers then video and audio loops back 1 or 2 seconds quite frequently. Honestly very annoying I just got a new modem and router too. Also some of the anime I watch has viewable content right up to the end and the auto play cuts it off to soon

CR need to belly up and update its video streaming system. This issue I think is because of the lack of quality controls in the various apps. It auto detects connection speed(?) and as internet speed is always in flux and constantly changes the video too goes from 480 to 720 to 1080 and back and forth. This constant switching/ readjustments is the cause of the problems I believe and also the reason why it uses SO MUCH data (on that note don't use CR w/ LTE if you're watching your data usage). If one has a very fast wifi connection they may not even experience this problem as the speed most likely would easily compensate. However, those of us with slower speeds or LTE...well you've read what the OP said...
But anyway between Hulu, Netflix and other free (and legal) streaming sites that don't experience these issues, the problems at Crunchyroll are but a minor inconvenience of having all your anime, and ONLY anime in one place. Why someone would pay for a service with constant issues is beyond me.

This seems to have fixed my issue. I was about to give up because everything became unwatchable on this device. Thanks for the download. Here's hoping itx keeps working and CR can get their shit together with future support.

Just to update, I purchased a new phone, an LG G6. Same carrier (T-Mobile). I still have the same issue I did with my Nexus 5. Constant buffering and looping. Watching Crunchyroll on VRV is a little more bearable, as it just buffers\pauses for 20-30 seconds every few minutes instead of playing the same thing over and over again. Still, it shouldn't take me 40 minutes to watch a 20 minute anime.

FunimationNow still runs flawlessly.

I am having the same issue on s7 edge
Up to date CR
4g-LTE Unlimited
And latest update on phone as well...

However mine's seems to only happen when trying to watch thru my network and I have all bars and great signal strength. It's the only issue I have all other streaming apps (netflix,hulu) all work fine as they should.

But once I get home I turn on my Wi-Fi thru phone and use app and it works fine. Not sure if they did something with that update that has a bug with network connectivity but I have eliminated all other possibilities.

I hope they did this soon cause I tend sit and watch my anime on break at work and don't have much time at home to watch....
