We all love anime, but we don't have an eternity to watch through every show. Is there a sort by rating (user rating) function? If not, can we get one? I trust my fellow viewers, and I'd love to watch shows with a higher rating.

Second this. There are a lot of shows that I would normally have never checked out, except that I stumbled across them on accident, saw they were rated favorably, and gave them a try. With lots of old shows being added, it's hard to know if that random rom-com from 2006 is just another tired mass of tropes, or a classic gem.

I think it is crap that we can't get a sort by user rating function if we pay for a membership. We pay, yet we cannot search for anime properly? Makes no fucking sense to me. Sorry for the language, but it honestly makes me want to cancel my membership to Crunchyroll.

Completely agreed. I think it’s a matter of alternatives and time.

This is definitely a much needed features because:
- Not all shows from MyAnimeList are available on Crunchyroll
- Not all shows are available for my region

So basically, just like @tetsugaku_no_mi said, the only option that we have is to randomly search through shows and maybe stumble across something good, which is time consuming and boring to do.
I mean it shouldn't really be hard to program, assuming you already have a system where you store show ratings in a database all it should take is a simple query, i do not understand why this feature is not implemented.. :/

Lets see...can you see or search for a list of shows ranked by user rating on any other commercial legal streaming service?

Funimation: no
Netflix: no
Hulu: no
view.yahoo.com: no
tubi.tv: no
HiDive: no
Viki.com: no
I can't check Wakanim or Anilab, but I suspect the same is true there, too.

Based on that, it seems quite likely there's a commercial business reason why they don't (or contractually aren't allowed to) do it, something like the production committees supplying commercial sites don't want anyone to see their products presented in a negative light.

Yeah, this one if possible.

And would like to sort anime like under comedy and by release date and if it's ongoing or complete (by season). I'm not a premium member but I hope they implement this.
