Crunchyroll subscription cost in the U.S.

Crunchyroll is currently offering three subscription tiers in the U.S. The cheapest one is the “Fan” plan, which costs 8 USD monthly and gives members ad-free access to the streamer’s extensive library of anime series and movies, including simulcasts. The platform’s middle tier is called “Mega Fan” and it costs $10 per month with perks like offline viewing. Lastly, its third tier, “Ultimate Fan,” has a price tag of $15 per month and allows subscribers to stream on up to six devices, plus Crunchyroll Store discounts and freebies.

The abovementioned Crunchyroll subscription tiers were launched in the U.S. in 2020, a year after the streamer implemented a price increase in the country, as well as in the U.K., Australia, and the Nordics.

What is Crunchyroll?

Operating as a joint venture between U.S.-based Sony Pictures Entertainment and Japan’s Aniplex (a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc.), Crunchyroll is the biggest anime streaming service in the world with more than 30,000 episodes. Subscribers of the service can also watch episodes of current-season Japanese anime series on the platform one hour after they air in Japan.

Sony acquired Crunchyroll for $1.18 billion in cash from AT&T in 2021. The streaming service then merged with rival Funimation (which Sony bought in 2019) earlier this year.
