Originally created as something of a specialty YouTube for anime and other Japanese media and consisting primarily of illicit fansubs, in 2008 CrunchyRoll established deals to legally distribute some popular anime series simultaneous to their Japanese airing.


Crunchyroll is a legal video website that streams Asian drama shows and anime.

Its services are to provide shows on the computer, iPhone, IPad, Android smartphones, and television. The company sells merchandise with discounts.


  • As of today (04/13/12), anime fans from all of Latin-America (including Mexico and the rest of the Spanish speaking countries in Central and South America) will have access to the latest Anime episodes with Spanish subtitles and the original Japanese audio.
  • On October 2, 2013, Crunchyroll launch a new website in France to cater its services with French language support.


On October 30, 2013, Crunchyroll has partnered up with Kodansha to legally stream few key manga titles for audiences outside of Japan.


It was founded in June 2006, and the company has offices in San Francisco, California and Tokyo, Japan. It is funded by Venrock, TV Tokyo, Bitway, and angel investors.
