U.S. Crunchyroll users have been able to experience the brand New Crunchyroll Beta since April 27, and there’s a lot of new fun to explore between the Crunchylists, new interface, fully redesigned experience and more!
Crunchyroll is announcing today that as of June 15, all registered users in the United States will be in the new website experience by default. But don’t worry! All of your watchlist and profile information will be retained, and you will not have to take any actions on June 15. However, registered U.S. users will not be able to access the old website unless they are logged out.
There’s a lot to be excited about in the new Crunchyroll website, so let’s take a look at the breakdown from the initial announcement!
The homepage’s new user interface has been redesigned to fit the needs of the anime community, complete with personalized recommendations for users and seamless navigation to specific shows, episodes, personal watchlists, and more. It’s also much easier to search and filter for ease of access to simulcasts, exploring new genres, watching dubbed and subbed versions of your favorite shows, and dipping into collections curated by Crunchyroll’s anime experts.
Crunchylists allow fans to create curated collections of their own. Add a title to your creation, fill it out with full series or select episodes from Crunchyroll’s library of 1,000+ series, and organize your list in any way you see fit! While users are busy personalizing their Crunchyroll experience, they can create unique usernames and select from a curated library of avatars and header images from a bunch of different series.
