What do you get with Crunchyroll?

Crunchyroll carries over 1,200 anime and manga titles in its vast library. These include fan-favorite episodes and movies like One Piece, My Hero Academia, Naruto Shippuden, and Tokyo Revengers. But there are differences in what perks and features you get depending on your Crunchyroll subscription. See below.

Crunchyroll Free only allows you limited access to anime and digital manga titles that are supported by ads and confined to just 480p resolution.  

The Fan tier provides complete access to Crunchyroll's ad-free anime and manga libraries. Plus, you'll receive access to new episodes one hour after premiering in Japan, and a much-needed upgrade to high definition (HD) 720p and 1080p resolution. 

Crunchyroll Mega Fan includes all of what you get with Fan plus offline viewing, early access to exclusive Crunchyroll Expo events, and lotteries. 

Crunchyroll Ultimate Fan delivers even more for superfans by including everything in the previous tiers, plus special store deals, an annual complimentary swag bag, and an exclusive limited-run Hime Nendoroid figure. 

How is Crunchyroll different?

Crunchyroll is an anime hub for all-things anime, aggregating news, games, forums, simulcasts, classic and new anime, and digital manga libraries. No matter if you're a free or premium subscriber, you can take part in the Crunchyroll community via its app or website. Most streaming services focus specifically on generating content, but Crunchyroll specializes in cultivating a community around anime fandom.
