As of today, Wii U owners can access the Crunchyroll application, a leading global destination and platform for anime, manga and Asian dramas.
Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Is all I can say :)
Sounds awesome but just like my Playstation I haven't been able to connect to the online all day because of all the new systems hitting. I was gonna buy a ton (like 4 or 5) games on both systems but I can't do anything.
Yay, now I can get my crunch in no matter what im using.
Yup, same here, good news indeed.
the drama part of crunchyroll is that still anime or am i correct in thinking its live shows? also will i need to use my credit card to try the trial out?
The Drama part of Crunchyroll is not Anime. It consists of live action Japanese dramas. Yes, you do need your credit card to sign up for a free trial. However, you can use Crunchyroll without paying. The downside to a free account is will having to watch ads, though. You also lose the ability to watch episodes the day after they air in Japan, and have to wait a week before it becomes available to free users.
thanks for the reply. so it will function pretty much like on tv on a free account and i guess if i dont like going through ads too much i can always sign up subscription wise from a free account?
Finally another app
Probably won't use it, what with all the free anime out there on other websites, but it's nice to know that it's there if I see a reason to change my mind. On a related note: Check out Seikoku No Dragonar. Pretty damned good anime, and it's got a light novel and manga as well. Pretty sure Crunchyroll will have it, since they cover a lot.
except those other sites are not supporting the original animators and manga artist. Meaning you could be the cause of why animes like blood lad and medaka box dont get the funding to continue. So no ill stick to supporting things i like, sure i watch illigally too but down the road ill buy the series. ps. all anime is based off manga
Hey, I try to buy where I can, too,[being a gamer is expensive enough; being a devout purchaser of every single anime I've ever seen is outside the bounds of my bank account.XD] but a lot of the anime I've seen doesn't even get sold in the states. Many of the ones that do, get licensed out here after I've already seen the fan subs of them, as well.
Kissanime is a good site that works on PS4,Xbox One and Wii U. I recommend Tokyo Ghoul, Terra Formars and Attack on Titan if you like gory anime.
Wii U now has an official Anime Miiverse Community!!
