8 Comments

Crunchyroll lets you stream tons of anime, and one of its biggest features is that you can watch it all for free; the company has free and premium tier. Now, the company is adding some more tiers to its system. If you pay a little more a month, you get a lot more access to videos and manga on the site.

First and foremost, the free tier still exists for those anime fans on a budget who don't mind ad-supported content. New episodes of shows, however, will be available one week after the premiere. If you want to watch anime without the ads, you'll have to sign up for the Fan Tier, which will cost $8 a month. This also grants access to Crunchyroll's full anime library and access to simulcast series with premiere in Japan.

Additionally, there is the Mega Fan tier for $10, which allows for offline viewing and access to Crunchyroll's digital manga library. The next step up is the Ultimate Fan tier at $15 a month, which allows access to purchase exclusive merchandise, an annual swag bag, discounts at the Crunchyroll store, and more.

Crunchyroll is a premiere anime streaming service featuring more than 1,000 anime titles and 30,000 episodes along with manga, games, a store, and a whole lot more. Check out the full list of benefits for the tiers below.
