You have a queue which lets you get updates on the anime that is currently getting updated episodes and watch the episodes you have not watched which is fine. What is not fine is that if you like a specific anime that is already completed and put it in your queue, it does not take you to the actual page of the show it takes you straight to the episode you last watched and their is nothing you can do about it other then manually searching for your favorite anime. It's really annoying that the subscription is so expensive and the quality of the shows are so good but navigation of the app and the website is so frustrating.

I just want to re watch Drifters and it was in my queue on the app, but in the queue its on episode 12 and if i want to start it over i have to manually search for it on the app just to do that. Please if you are reading this anyone at Crunchyroll at a favorite tab that can take you to your favorite anime pages not the last episode, let us select the episode we watch instead of forcing us to watch the last one we were on. Sorry about the rant but its been like this for a while now and no change at all has been made to make it easier to navigate your app especially when your using the app that is not on the computer.

From your queue page, you can get to any show page by clicking the down "V":



Then the "Show Information" link



There used to be favorites lists, watch list and even other kinds of lists, but they disabled that functionality years ago when they replaced it all with the queue, which in a lot of ways is better, but also lost some desirable features as well, such as being able to keep lists separate.

ya its better.... for the web version. for the app version its terrible as you can not go to the page of the show from the queue and can not change what episode appears on the queue.

Don't have an Apple TV or game console, but have Roku, Fire TV, and Android tablet, and can go from the queue to the show page on all three of those.

Android has three dots below each show that you do a long press to get a menu, then select "videos" from the drop down. Arrow down from there and start playing one for about 30 seconds, and that sets the queue from there.

On a Roku, while on a show, the OK button brings up a menu where you just down arrow one box to the show list, and again, you can start any episode and again that sets the queue.

Fire TV after pressing the center, then push right to go to show info, then down to episodes, and again choose the one you want to start with to do the same 30 seconds as the others.

So, I would think there must be some way to do it on the other devices as well...it just may not be obvious at first.

I am not sure i understood too how to do it for FireTV,

I have similar complains.. 1. ) why is there no next episode button for fireTV player? 2.) when we see last episode in the queue, how can i select other episodes if i want to rewatch.. instead of searching for the anime manually?

Navigate to the episode showing in the queue.
Push the center of the ring once (not the play/pause button)
push right on the ring to go to the "View Series Details" (instead of start watching) button and press that
The series information appears with individual episodes below.
Navigate down to the stripe below and select the episode you want.
