In order to change your username you have to make a new account with that name and then nuke your old one.

Sadly this is the only way.

This is a kind of funny situation...

In fact change user name should be easy at first, but you have to keep in mind several points in order to make this possible...

- Database structure should be well-formed by using identifiers aside of the user name, if the user name was used as identifier for the database, change it could be imposible to do, or risking to generate broken registers or took a lot of computing effort that is not the worth to the company.

- Crunchyroll owners, IT Team, etc, etc don't want to implement this feature because they really don't care or simply it is not planned at all.

I don't want to go deeper in this thing, but it would be great if we can change it, but I don't think they would hesitate to implement that feature or explain the real reason why they cannot do that, (Probably sticking with "This is not allowed by our service terms").
