I like the UI of the app on PS4 and the fact that it's also available on windows and android systems.
The quality of the streams.
Queue and resume function


-
A lot of content it's restricted due to license issue
Op and ed songs are not translated

I would like more older titles because, the new ones are not out yet.

Well, over the year or so that I have been using the Crunchyroll service, this is what I think of it:

Pros:
+ Offers an acceptable range of shows to someone who is new to anime, or someone who doesn't watch alot
+ 1080p video viewing for most shows
+ Most of the shows are professionally subbed
+ Allows users to access episodes soon after they are aired in Japan
+ Simulcasts
+ Fairly in-expensive (compared to other sites, similar in nature)
+ Very convenient as it can be used across a variety of devices, and it includes an app for most mobile devices
+ Decent forums and profile customisation, not the best, but it's there to use
+ Pretty reliable in terms of the site not being down, or under maintenance (for me at least)

Cons:
- Offers a very limited selection of shows (for roughly 65% of all of the anime iv'e watched, I had to go else where to see it, because it either wasn't on Crunchyroll, or it was region blocked for me)
- Region blocking prevents me from seeing the shows that I want to see (Kill la kill, One piece, Aria the animation)
- There are sites which offer a better service, for free (watch Digibro's video "Where should we watch our anime?")
- The store is absolutely terrible
- It forces people to either use said illegal sites, or waste money on the blu-ray version of the anime (again, watch Digibro's video on it)

Overall, It's a pretty ok site. For most shows, Crunchyroll is a great place to watch them, however, it isn't without it's problems. As iv'e mentioned some shows you just cannot watch on Crunchyroll, and are forced to either watch on illegal sites, or buy the over-priced blu-ray that nobody wants. Whilst, this isn't necessarily Crunchyroll's fault, it more so exists within the industry as whole.

I use Crunchyroll mainly on my phone now. I like how I can use 3g to watch (it might be a premium only feature), and how there are things like the newly released feature, and that it's a legal service that supports the industry.

I dislike how long it takes to load, how often it stops on a frame (perhaps to have the audio jump back to earlier on in the show and/or go beyond the freeze), and how I can't turn off the subs or just watch the raw version on mobile (though you can on a computer/laptop), though I understand it has to do with coding for specific frame size or something. But if I'm not mistaken, they have other subtitle languages aside from English that you can watch with, so why they can't also upload the raw is beyond me.
No hate, Crunchyroll, I just like complaining more than I do applauding your good efforts!

The comments section has been broken for years now, it only will sort by most recent. That is my biggest complaint but it really bothers me.


This

And the fact the website player doesn't have the ten second button, even though the app does. Been years now like that.

Reasons why I like CR:

- legal
- forum where I can ask anime recommendations
- I can watch DBS here

Dislike reasons:

- Region blocked shows like My Hero Academia, One Piece and Psycho Pass for example ( I know not Cr fault)
- When I use phone I see same 6 ads every time

I just started using CR and I want to make a list of things that I like and hate about CR.

Things I like:

- CR is available on all platforms
- CR app asks you if you want to start from the beginning or watch where you have ended
- Easy to use app menu
- Forum
- Fast updates
- That all kind of text is translated in anime (for example: text on phone, in the book)

Things I hate:

- Bufforing circle that shows when you skip too much and you can't pause (app)
- That you can't download episodes to watch them offline (I know it depends on licence etc.)
- Not all anime are available in my country (Poland, I know it also depends on licence etc.)
- I have experienced slow working player on the website. (I prefer to watch anime on Crunchyroll on my iPad, player works better)

I would like to hear other people opinion. If I'll remind myself something I'll add it later.


Yep sums up my experience so far too.

I mean when you list the anime you can't put a lot down because you can only do a certain amount of characters.


That's why I just wrote the genre of anime I'm often into in "Interests", rather than series titles.

I think it gets the message across better, given the limitations.
