Crunchyroll has many contents to offer, even to individuals that are not anime enthusiasts.

What is Crunchyroll, and how does it operate?

Crunchyroll is a streaming service mostly focused on Japanese animation. It is accessible globally and has the most significant streaming list of licensed anime. What makes it unique from its competition is that you can enjoy the majority of content on Crunchyroll for free.

You can watch your favourite anime shows and films on your phone, PC, or TV by enrolling for a free account. Crunchyroll operates on several kinds of platforms and devices, too, including WiiU, PlayStation 4,  Xbox One, and more.

Crunchyroll’s list includes anime series primarily. It offers many classic prominent shows, such as One Piece and Gundam. However, it is the best platform to stream recently released anime.

Simulcasts can be accessible: fresh episodes from top shows are often available to see only an hour soon after they are broadcast in Japan. Don’t feel bothered if you don’t understand a bit of Japanese.

The series is translated and subtitled in a large variety of languages. There are also some excellent anime films on Crunchyroll, but the option there is somewhat limited. This also applies to Asian dramas since the catalog of available titles alters regularly.

You can browse the manga (Japanese comics) your favourite anime is based on if you can’t wait for the following season of it to be aired.  Crunchyroll possesses a big archive of manga, and several titles are available for free.

Crunchyroll subscription plans and costs

Previously, we mentioned that you could watch most of the content offered by Crunchyroll for free. Nevertheless, the streaming service also consists of three premium plans, and each has different extras.

Here are the primary differences and how to determine which plan is suitable for you:


Free membership

For occasional viewers or those just getting into Japanese animation, a free membership is always the best option. It permits you to view most of the accessible content in standard definition or 480p.

This package is ad-supported, which implies that you will experience ads both when seeing the anime and browsing manga. You will also have to be a little patient if you wish to see fresh episodes since they are not immediately available


Crunchyroll Fan is a suitable plan for anime lovers and those that desire an ad-free affair. This subscription package doesn’t only remove all advertisements but gives you access to the entire list of anime, dramas, and manga.

This contains simulcasts as well as simulpubs so that you can view or read fresh content immediately it comes out.  The viewing experience is upgraded, as well.  With Fan plan, you can see your favourite anime in full HD (720p and 1080p).

Nonetheless, you are restricted to just one concurrent stream at a time with your account. The Crunchyroll Fan subscription costs $7.99 per month, with a free 14-day trial

Mega Fan

This subscription package has everything in the cheaper Fan class but boosts the number of concurrent streams on each account from one to four streams. Most importantly, you also gain access to offline viewing of anime films with this plan.

You get a $15 deduction rate off any one-time purchase of $100 in the Crunchyroll Shop every three months. The Crunchyroll Mega Fan subscription goes for $9.99 per month, with a free 14-day trial

Ultimate Fan

This package includes everything in the Fan and Mega Fan plans. Nevertheless, you can access up about six concurrent streams on any account with the Ultimate Fan subscription.

Each year, you will receive a unique swag bag, and you will be given a limited-run Hime Nendoroid figure. You also get a $25 discount rate off any one-time purchase of $100 in the Crunchyroll Shop every three months.

By 2021, Ultimate Fan subscribers will get first access to special Crunchyroll Expo exhibitions and lotteries.  The Crunchyroll Ultimate Fan subscription amounts to $14.99 a month, with a free 14-day trial


VRV subscription

If you reside in the US and you like nerdy things, not just anime, you might find VRV interesting. This streaming service bundles several anime, gaming, as well as cartoon channels into one, including Crunchyroll.

A premium subscription to VRV will earn you similar advantages as a Crunchyroll Fan membership with no issues. You also gain access to HIDIVE,  Mondo Media, Cartoon Hangover, and more for $9.99 per month

List of good anime to stream on Crunchyroll

What would you see if you are convinced enough to give Crunchyroll a try? You would be glad to learn that Crunchyroll offers both quality and quantity services. It has something for everyone, including little known fan classics to worldwide hits.

You will discover all of the exciting long-running anime favourites such as Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, and more. They are excellent for those that appreciate extended series, thanks to the enormous number of episodes most of these anime have.

However, you can also enjoy shorter action shows that are no less than excellent, like Attack on Titan, One-Punch Man, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

On the other hand, if you appreciate fantasy shows, you can check out the mysterious and fascinating Mononoke series or the Mushi-shi anime, plus its distinctive and colorful art style.

The current “Ancient Magus’ Bride” show is also a must-watch if you desire to add a little romance into the mix. We can’t commend “Yuri on Ice” enough — a sports anime hit that has excited audiences since 2016.

Whatever anime you plan on entertaining yourself with, there is no doubt that you’d have amazing fun watching them with Crunchyroll. For more checkout the website.
