How To Cancel Crunchyroll


These days, every big streaming service works with anime. Amazon, Netflix and Hulu, for example, all have their own exclusives and non-exclusives. Look for any show and you’ll most likely find it, at least in one of these. However, Crunchyroll is the undisputed daddy of anime streaming, but how do you cancel Crunchyroll if you need to?

Before anime was caught by the streaming fever, there was a service that stood above all others in terms of Japanese animation:  Crunchyroll. Some years ago, if you wanted to watch the slightest indie or off-trend anime, you could only find it on Crunchyroll.

While Crunchyroll might have lost its almost complete exclusiveness from the old niche days, it’s still a big player in the anime world. It has a solid user base and a continuous stream of new (and old) content.

If you want to get the most out of Crunchyroll, there is a membership program with benefits by the name of Crunchyroll Premium. For example, you get no ads, access to every anime available, device streaming, digital mangas, and simulcasting.

It may seem like a nice investment, but, after some time with the service in hands, some people just lose interest. Or, you know, lose cash. If you’re one such person, you’ve come to the right place. Whatever the particular reason that led you here, check out how to cancel your Crunchyroll membership.


How To Cancel Your Crunchyroll Premium Membership

In order to cancel your Crunchyroll Premium membership, you need to open your web browser, head over to Crunchyroll and log in. Then, just follow the steps below.

  1. In the top right corner, click on Profile.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Under the section Account Settings, go to Premium Membership Status.
  4. Near your membership details, click on Cancel Membership, and confirm.

There you go. Keep in mind that your account will stay premium for the remainder of your last month’s payment. After that, it will revert to free.

As of today, you can’t cancel your Crunchyroll membership with an Android or iOS device. However, there is a new version for Crunchyroll’s website in the works (with a beta version available for tests). Maybe they release it with additional functions on mobile devices.


How To Cancel Crunchyroll Account

If you already have a free account, and you actually want to delete it altogether, this is the guide for you.

In order to cut ties with Crunchyroll, log into your Crunchyroll account with your web browser. From now on, it’s pretty easy. Just do the following:

  1. With your account logged in, head to Crunchyroll’s account nuke page.
  2. If you want, you can declare your reason for cancelling your account. If you don’t want to, then just go to the next step.
  3. Click Deactivate Now.

There, you’re done. No more Crunchyroll for you.
