    Let's talk about Crunchyroll :sushi_help:

    Alright, so I wanted to gain some insights about Crunchyroll(CR) users. I am working on a UX/UI project( for a portfolio, and is simply practice) that involves adding much-needed and wanted features to the website and/or app. Later on, I will design a prototype that shows these features inside the app.

    I've been a user of CR for years and years now and every now and then the "what if" question has came to mind. "What if you do this/that?" or "It would be cool, if I could do/see this."

    I can't do this research based on my wants and needs alone which is why I'm asking you all and the best thing about it, I don't need your socials/contact/real name/etc.

    Fill out the following below: please and thank you:sushi_yes:
    1. Nickname/Alias:

    2. Age Group:
    (below 13)
    (13-17)
    (18-22)
    (23-27)
    (above 27)

    3. How long have you been using CR? Watching anime?

    4. How often do you watch anime on a weekly basis? When do you watch it?
    - For ex(my response): As of right now I don't watch anime everyday like usual due to classes starting again. I'm watching on certain days because of their release dates.

    5. Do you use any other video steaming services (Hulu, Netflix, Funimation)? What features do you like from those that you wish CR had as well?

    6. Are you a CR website or mobile app user?

    7. What kind of CR subscriber are you? (free, fan, mega fan....)

    8. Putting aside pricing, do you think CR is the best and convenient place to watch anime? What makes it convenient? What makes it inconvenient? In this section, please provide what you wish was provided in the app?
    - For ex(my response): I always wish I could be able to see the comments I made on an anime and perhaps see notifications.
    - So what are some situations that made you ask those "what if" questions.

    Thank you for your time! :sushi_thankyou:
    ~ Depending on how things go, I will stop gathering responses on Sept 1st. ~

    What features do you like from those that you wish CR had as well?
    More variety of anime availability in India

    6. Are you a CR website or mobile app user?
    website

    7. What kind of CR subscriber are you? (free, fan, mega fan....)
    Free, never subscribed.
    not enough good anime available to watch in India, even if I subscribe, so it's pointless paying money there

    8. Putting aside pricing, do you think CR is the best and convenient place to watch anime? What makes it convenient? What makes it inconvenient? In this section, please provide what you wish was provided in the app?

    To watch good Anime in CR, I have to use VPN or TOR to change my IP into another country.
    It is more convenient to watch from unlicensed sites, because I don't have to pay for a VPN, AND watch the advertisements from CR / pay for CR too !

    Feeling left out because of segregation by country or race is a very depressing feeling!

    Here's an interesting quote from the forums:
    So maybe half the users are already paying for & using a VPN to access CR... we will never know.
