Hello, everyone!

I have some questions, i wanted to watch the new episode of this anime i was following so i made an account for free trial, but it didn't work, but do i need to give on a credit card number?

Because me and my family don't own a credit card!

Thank you for your attention

The "trial" is for testing whether a subscription would work for you, it is not just a giveaway of two free weeks, so you have to enter some sort of payment method; they accept these three:

credit card
Paypal
Or sign up through iTunes

It is "free" in the sense that you will not get charged if you cancel in time before the time expires, but when signing up, you are saying your intention is to potentially subscribe. The payment method is required in case you decide to continue so you can be automatically billed, and is one of the terms of agreement to allow you to use the premium features for two weeks.

If you don't have one of the payment methods available to you, then what would be the point of CR just giving you two free weeks? They are a for-profit business, after all.

If you don't want to subscribe, you could try to haunt the guest pass giveaway thread, where premium members frequently give away their two-day passes that they get once a month as a perk. But there is a lot of competition there...

I feel like the "enter your credit card info" part is mainly so people don't scam CR by making a new account every 14 days

On a side note, OP, you could try the PayPal route
