Comments and Reviews from users:

Gracie Koeppen: “I've been using Crunchyroll on and off over the last few years, often switching between the free and paid memberships. Crunchyroll has a great selection of anime so when I heard that there had been a major redesign, I was hoping that many of the problems I had in the past would have been fixed. Unfortunately, the main problem remains; the app repeatedly crashes due to not being able to connect to the servers. Sometimes it resumes without any more issues, other times it continues to crash.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Justin Starkweather (Mcwhirlpoolinc): “I like this app however I have some complaints. For game console and smart TVs your CDNs are garbage. When watching anime on Hulu, Netflix or even Tubi I get no buffering issues YET. Depending on the device I always experience buffering issues. The user interface should be the same throughout all platforms. Also separate the shows and the movies. Thank you for bringing over a ton of shows and please fix these issues. Show the users that you care.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Updated review: Thank you for adding the ability to browse the entire library (there's an extra icon to the right of the search bar now). It's SO helpful! Also, I know machine-translated subtitles aren't ideal, but everyone please keep in mind that many of these titles might otherwise never get subtitles because they're not popular or new and so not a priority. I'd rather have machine-translated subs over nothing.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Sno Queen: “The selection and genres are wide, even including variety shows. But the app automatically plays first episode of anything even though I just wanted more information. It's not allowing me to cast to my TV. I hate having to put the phone near my face to watch anything and it's causing my hands to cramp. So hopefully there will be that option in the future. Until then a 3 star!!!” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

- wo -: “As for those who keep up the forums, the app still misses a lot of features that the website is contains, and that is understandable. Although, some flaws I've come across are due to optimization: app crashing when scrolling down my list from either not not being able to quickly load my entirely list, or from switching between the "All Anime" and "Watching" categories. An additional minor thing is that the main homepage sometimes does not auto-update every time the app is opened again.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Reese R.: “Good to finally see an official app, but I do miss quite a few features that the unofficial apps have. The main features I miss are: having your list being the first thing that the app opens to (since 9/10 times I'm just opening the app to update my watch status), the ability to see how many episodes of the series have aired already so I can make sure I'm up to date on my list updates, and a dark mode. A final thing I'd like to add is that I hope articles will be available in app in the future.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “the price of the membership is great. but here are the problems (1) the biggest problem for me is that the quality of the photos is not always amazing some of the manga have bad quality. (2) the app looks and feel empty, the design is outdated. And you have no controls ( for example, you can't change the view to be scroll down instead of flipping the page).(3) where is gintama, there is some missing shonen Jump mangas.” – 3/5 in Play Store

ottoniel ortega: “The only reason I'm not pirating is to support Jiangshi x. While the app format its self is not much of a problem. But more of the Manga reading experience. While I don't mind keeping downloads for only 7 days. The inability to customize the reading experience is a big downturn. Not being able to properly zoom in and out with having to completely zoom out to turn the page Another complaint is the poor transition from chapter to chapter, Having to press a button instead of continually swipe.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Sean Estes: “Updated my previous review, the updated system is way better than before, still not the best. Closed captions still bugged where changing the colors doesn't work on the Xbox app. Selection is limited but decent. The random maintenance issues every 15 mins is over and I haven't see a maintenance update in a while. A little more polish and I'll give it 4 stars” – 3/5 in Play Store

Shirley Liu: “New update is terrible! Not only does it not track which eps you've already watched but you can't even save your audio settings anymore and it always defaults to English dub! And the subtitles don't scale properly on full screen so they overlap. I can live with trying to remember which ep I'm on but the audio and subtitle probs are a killer. And the "continue watching" feature doesn't include subsequent episodes! The shows are great but I may need to cancel and resub after/if the app gets fixed.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

mia Wilks: “Epic, although the adds at the top may get in the way of some of the subtitles, and all of the adds are atleast 30 secs or more, it's the only app where I can watch free anime, especially the popular ones. A long with the limited casting, I don't agree with it, I think that the casting should be for free, I understand they have to make money somehow. So, all in all, it's fantastic :)” – 5/5 in Play Store

Shaelynn the Weeb: “I mean, it was very good but there are problems that make it terrible. 1. The brightness. For some reason, the brightness goes down when watching and gets brighter when ads show up and the fact I can't control it makes it worse. 2. There are too many ads. Literally pausing the videos cause an ad to show up and it's irritating. The 1st problem is what bugs me the most but if you fix it, the app would be so much better! Please don't do those things.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Jenna Rider: “I really love how many anime titles I can find on here. Especially for free. I like how you can tell if each one is SUB/DUB/finished and sometimes other names that it goes by without even clicking on it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is a ton of adds even when you pause it you have to close out of 2-3 adds just to continue it, to many adds at times. Suggestion: It would be nice to have all the seasons grouped together so you don't have to search for each season.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Daniel Singletary: “Ads cause the app to freeze. The ads wouldn't bother me so much for the free service. However, every second or third Advertisement doesn't load properly and hangs up on a black screen with only a volume, download, and information button. The only way to fix this is to completely close the app, restart, and hope that when you attempt to watch the show again that it loads a functional advertisement for you to close after it's over.” – 2/5 in Play Store

BMarie: “It's not bad of an app, I love watching my anime on it don't get me wrong, but sometimes it bugs. I'll watch an ad then it'll start another one that doesn't play but instead my anime is playing, causing me to close out the app just to finish an episode. I go through the trouble of closing my app multiple times while watching my anime because of small, inconvenient bugs that the app has during ads. Other than that I love the variety of anime they have, I 100% recommend this app. ❤️” – 3/5 in Play Store

Dana Richards: “Great app, the ads are much less intrusive than crunchyroll without a membership. However, there seems to be a bug which wordscapes ads tend to make the screen go black and unresponsive. The only thing I can do afterwards is close the app then reopen it, hoping that I don't get another wordscapes ad. Also sometimes a season is bugged and I can't watch anything on it, just a black box with a buffering symbol, and completely empty and white where info like other episodes are located.

Cacti Sharp: “This app has improved greatly with the newest update, it copies pictures a lot better and even does hands right sometimes! You can write about the picture to make whatever you were wanting, and the quality is a lot better now too. My only complaint is that they took away some of the options (such as gothic), and the pictures are a little blurry, but using the sharpen edit helps with most of that. Keep up the good work!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Cameron Garde: “App was good, but then it started getting moderated extremely heavily for NSFW and became the same as all the rest of the apps... I shouldn't be restricted from what I want to use the filter on if I paid for it. Also, why moderate the app if the only people who would use an NSFW image are the people who already have it” – 2/5 in Play Store

Chris (xyvyx): “App is exceedingly slow. It's like it has no caching of images. Every time I watch an episode, it removes the show from my watch list. It also doesn't track progress of watching shows at all, so you have to remember what episode you stopped at. Horrible and frustrating. Of the streaming apps on my Shield Pro, it's tied with Crunchyroll for last place.... that app has a better UI, but it crashes all the time.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Jordan: “With the release of the new UI, I have to say, first impressions when opening the app, were pretty good, as the big show graphics look nice. But as I started to look throughout the app, there were a few imperfections that kinda...made the experience weird (Why is the watchlist in the ACCOUNT section?!), on top of that, I feel like show pages should have a little more life to them (kinda a problem Crunchyroll also has), and there are a few other issues, hence the lower score here.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Fantastic so far, with a few drawbacks. I would prefer subbed/dubbed be grouped together under a single title to streamline things. Chromecast integration is a bit primitive (no Chromecast screen confirmation that you've connected), and if you don't finish an episode/movie, it doesn't save your progress, so you can't continue where you left off. Despite this, it's an amazing FREE service, so I guess it's hard to complain! Still, I would love to see some of these changes in the future.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I love the fact that this is free. The selection of anime is also robust for this app being new. Cannit wait till you add more options. However, you may want to adjust how the playlist function works. It is a tad clunky. Making it more steamlined and less complicated would work wonders for the app. Maybe do a watchlist instead? Very similar to how VRV or Crunchyroll do it might help. Overall, I am happy with this FREE service!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Sakshi Gaur: “Very much better than all of the anime apps I've ever used. It has most of the anime and yah I don't mind the one or two ads in the beginning of every episode. They're small and we can skip them.” – 5/5 in Play Store

D'kagox Blacksmith: “pretty good app, with my poor signal conditions its gotta be one of the best like it ive used, there is a big issue with the server not being able to play an episode, and no matter how many days i wait or restart the app or device, i cannot play that episode, and end up skipping them, other than that, not much to complain about, great streaming app” – 4/5 in Play Store
