Been noticing this trend with CR where you keep the numbers from the previous seasons continuing onto the new season.

For example: Season 2 of Attack on Titan starts at Episode 14 rather than starting at episode 1. This makes keeping track of what episodes you have watched using services like Kitsu or MAL unintuitive as they all start the count, properly, with Episode 1.

The problem lies with the fact that many anime's seasons have different episode counts so it makes it harder to know what episode you're really on in subsequent seasons due to the inconsistency.

Not to say having a total count of episodes from the entire series isn't somewhat useful (may be great for binge watching) l but it shouldn't be the default.

That may be a decision that is made by the Japanese production committee, rather than Crunchyroll themselves.

If you've seen this on other series, you may want to take note of who is listed as the publisher. I know that for AoT, Funimation is listed is the publisher, and that has always been the way they've handled the episode numbering.

Yes, I agree it makes it a pain to track on MAL, but if they haven't changed in all this time, they aren't likely to.

Hmm That is a valid point. My Hero Academia Is also Lincensed by Funimation and has the same numbering system. Perhaps Funimation needs a talking to
