This season, for the first time I've been in Crunchyroll in years, there will be the first time that Crunchyroll, in Spain, won't be showing anything from any widely known anime. Since Naruto is over, Boruto is an unknown spin off, CR doesn't owns the rights for My Hero Academy, Attack on Titan, One Piece, Dragon Ball Super,,, we are facing a season of only filler shows with no real A-anime, the ones that CR sells in their marketing mails.
Considering that we won't have any of these series, so we are facing a shrinking novelty catalog each season (both in quantity and quality) but we paying the monthly fee each month. Doesn't sees very fair, when my cable provides me, for a very similar fee, a VOD catalogue which includes series like One Punch Man or Attack On Tittan

Because the market and the consumers decide what shows and what programs are of what value

If you were being a responsible consumer you'd realize "hay, there's shows i'm not interested in this month, I'm not going to pay for a subscription"

it's not the job of CR to adjust every month there isn't a good show.

It's what I did, I've already cancelled the renewal of my premium membership, but if the price was lower, maybe I wouldn't have to do it. The problem is that in Spain is not something that has happened this month, is a trend that started a year ago since Netflix and other services started offering services and Crunchyroll didn't reacted, so its offer is overpriced in comparison with one year of perspective, and it's getting worse

Cancel your subscription and come back when a season looks good. I pay "by the season" (3-months, $19.95 USD) for this very reason. If the season looks good to me, then I buy it. If not, I don't subscribe and I spend the season going through Crunchyroll's back catalog with a free account and the occasional Guest Pass. There are plenty of shows I haven't seen.

If anything, CR is too inexpensive. They should raise rates and pour that money into their content delivery service to improve streaming reliability or maybe hire some more engineers to improve this website.
