If you’ve been following Crunchyroll for a while, you might be aware that they used to offer free streaming of several popular anime such as the Naruto series (see Naruto filler list here). After a while, the option vanished, but Crunchyroll seems to have resurrected it, which will be a tremendous joy for anime fans around the world. Moreover, a number of new well-known animes that can be streamed for free have been revealed today. So, if you are looking for anime you can stream for free, check out the complete list of newly added anime in Crunchyroll’s Ad-Supported collection.
Crunchyroll’s New Ad-Supported Anime Catalog
Crunchyroll has revamped its AVOD library with many latest anime series. Therefore, you can now stream some fan-favorite anime such as Blue Lock, Chainsaw Man, Vinland Saga, etc. for zero cost but with ads, of course.
Asa Suehira, Crunchyroll’s Chief Content Officer, stated “It’s part of our service to fans when we can make popular titles more accessible.” Furthermore, “these titles will be part of the 1,000 hours of Crunchyroll’s library available free for fans as a way of sampling the world of anime, building new audiences, and growing the already passionate community,” he added.
This is a much-welcome move from Crunchyroll and will be appreciated by fans, as they care more about the anime community and even give them opportunities to kick-start their anime journey this way. It’s no wonder that Crunchyroll is leading when it comes to top anime streaming platforms.
List of Free Anime Available to Watch on Crunchyroll
Crunchyroll has added a lot of newly released anime to their ad-supported catalog. There have been many animes included previously and these are some of the popular anime that you can stream right away in the highest quality with ads (and there are many more too):
|Crunchyroll’s Ad-Supported Library|
|Spy X Family|
|My Dress-Up Darling|
|Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba|
|Kaguya-sama: Love is War|
|My Hero Academia|
Note: The availability of the aforementioned anime varies from region to region. Additionally, both the dub and sub versions are available. But the availability of the complete seasons also differs between both versions. For example, Blue Lock’s English sub-version has all 24 episodes while the dub version has only 3 episodes available to stream for free. Therefore, check out the library before you decide to stream one.
How to Watch Free Ad-Supported Anime on Crunchyroll
It is easy to get complete access to Crunchyroll’s free anime offerings. Here is what you need to do:
- Head over to Crunchyroll’s homepage (visit) and create a new account if you don’t have one. If you already have a Crunchyroll account, then just log in.
- And after logging into your account, you can start streaming the anime which is available for free in the highest quality (but with ads).
And that’s everything we know about the anime added to Crunchyroll’s AVOD plan. This was a surprising move from the team which will be a huge treat to the anime community worldwide. Fans who wanted to try a slice of anime can now do it legally and can enjoy their ride into the anime world.
