Pricing, Plans, & Features
No matter what kind of fan you are, Crunchyroll has a plan to meet your fandom needs, whether you're a casual viewer or a hardcore fan.
You don't need to sign up to explore the app/website, but if you do create a free account, you'll have access to some content for streaming. However, most of the content is reserved for premium subscribers. Don't worry, though, they offer a free 14-day trial in case you're not ready to commit just yet.
When it comes to the perks of the premium life, things are pretty amazing. You get to watch new episodes just one hour after they air in Japan, so you don't have to wait long to catch up on your favorite shows. Another awesome benefit is no annoying ads. It's only the best-uninterrupted viewing experience from here, kids.
