Crunchyroll brings its anime video service to Windows 10 on PC and Mobile

The Crunchyroll anime video streaming service is now available as a Windows 10 UWP app for PC and Mobile after previously being offered on Windows Phone. It offers access to thousands of Japanese animated TV episodes.

The app incorporates Windows 10 features like using Cortana to help search for the anime series you want to watch, and it also has a Live tile for the Start menu that shows the most recently updated series. Here's a quick description:

Watch over 25,000 episodes and 15,000 hours of the latest and best Anime 1-hour after TV broadcast, on all your devices. Enjoy current series straight out of Japan, and catch up on episodes of your favorite shows like Naruto Shippuden, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, Parasyte, Fairy Tail, Hunter X Hunter, and many more.

While the Crunchyroll app is free to download and use, there is a paid Premium service that allows users to access more content with no ads and in 1080p. There is a 14 day free trial for the premium service.

Thanks to Jacob, Erick and Oscar for the tips!

  • Raining ☔ app .
  • YAY Naruto Shippuden for everyone, errwhere!!
  • I just started watching this on CrunchyRoll for Xbox one. Great show
  • Been waiting for the pc version for a while.
  • Do the ads work now? I love the old version because ads don't pop.
  • I don't know, I'm happy to pay the premium price to have them removed everywhere.
  • Hey, I tipped it too, on tuesday, through Twitter! Anyway, this is a great thing, there was an app for Windows Phone 8 but I feared that they would kill it. Crunchyroll did kill their smart TV apps some time ago, so it was the logical conclusion. So to me this was a very pleasant surprise. I've yet to try it in Continuum but it's a great addition to the collection of things to watch. Now the Netflix UWP app (continuum ready) is even more sorely needed. Come on!
  • Bring on the apps
  • All this for a dead platform, I doubt it
  • On the one hand, ya! Great news. On the other... I used Crunchywow as a third party (and kinda preferred it cuz I didn't need premium).... But yea, ya!
  • Great to have both Crunchyroll and Funimation on board.
  • PARASYTE! Awesome anime

  • Can't find One Piece or Fairy Tail. ☹
  • I just searched for both and I can see them, both of these anime are on Crunchyroll.
  • Sweet! I love Crunchyroll, now I can head straight to the app on PC instead of opening my browser! As sometimes the website doesn't perform as well in Chrome as it should.
