Crunchyroll on PS3

Hi, anime and Asian drama fans out there. Today, we launched the Crunchyroll app on PlayStation 3! The app allows Crunchyroll premium members to watch our entire catalog of anime and Asian drama, while free members can stream a sizeable collection of our content. You can learn more about our membership plans and pricing here, and you’ll be able to sign up for a free 30-day trial on your PS3.

Crunchyroll has hundreds of Japanese anime titles across a myriad of genres. The app includes access to our simulcast titles, usually available a few hours after the first broadcast in Japan. My personal favorite is Gosick, a series full of mystery, history, and romance. It’s true — anime is not just for guys.

I’m having the same problem as Teflon02. I downloaded the app on my ps3 went to sign up for my free 30 day trial , it asked for a zip/postal code but when I go to type in my postal code I can only type in numbers not numbers and letters , which means I can’t type in a postal code since it has letters. But reading all the complaints I don’t know if I want to or not also I’m use to us Canadians getting shafted with ps3 apps and what not. Maybe this so called patch will fix the sign up problem also if your going to pay a monthly fee at least let it be worth it.

Of course it would be better if all the content was free like most anime but I guess they have to make a profit somehow.

Gave this program a shot earlier. There were a few samples of series, so I checked out episode 1 of Saint Seiya Omega. The show itself was enjoyable, but there was a lot of lag and choppiness along with poor visual quality. It’s a nice little free application when I really want to watch some cheap anime, but I can’t imagine paying for the full service instead of Netflix or Hulu Plus. I will definitely watch for updates.

@89 RyanSaotome: Thanks for the info. Yeah, you’re right. It’s based on personal preference and taste. =)

@knifinggrimace a lot of us have the same problem, that and cant use it outside usa is why I’m giving it a pass. About all its good for as of now is finding what I want on bluray.

Not a great app. Not a huge anime fan, but figured I’d give it a shot. An extra video service app can only be a good thing…right? Unfortunately not.

The selection is smaller than I expected. The layout is not the most intuitivel. Worst of all, the video player is terrible. Video loads incredibly slowly, has poor playback options, freezes and crashes. This app, at this time, is certainly not ready for mass consumption and needs some work to be a worthwhile download. Good idea, and could eventually be worth investing in, but not right now.

using the website on the ps3 internet browser is way better than using this ps3 app …..the developers should feel very bad about that

oh yeah and another thing i hope the Crackle Vita app is exactly like the Google Chrome Crackle web browser app that would be good :)

Gosick eh… It’s a long road to develop a taste. Look for Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor

Very interesting app. Can’t wait to check it out. I’m ok with the anime being dubbed. Doesn’t make too much of a difference to me.

I downloaded this app, but my criticism is that I have to be a premium member to watch all the anime and dramas on my PS3. Yet on my android phone I can watch all those without being a premium member. Come on, CR. Why make PS3 viewer get premium to watch anime and dramas?
