Anyone that watches anime most likely knows about the very popular streaming service CrunchyRoll. Recently the streaming service has hit a milestone that sets it apart from other streaming services, CrunchyRoll has finally hit 1 million paid subscribers which makes it the most popular anime/ J- Drama specific streaming service to date.
The number is pretty small compared to some of the more well known streaming services but it shows that people are willing to pay to watch anime. CrunchyRoll does have a free version of it’s membership but it doesn’t offer the same perks that the paid membership offers. Hopefully anime streaming becomes more relevant and gets to a point where it can possibly come close to competing with some of the bigger services but that’s a bit of a stretch considering that there are other sources for it.
