Crunchyroll has crossed three million subscribers! This is nothing but great news for the anime lovers to have such a platform. The good animes are changing the environment and hearts.

Now they have reached a new milestone crossing three million paid subscribers globally.
The Journey of The Crunchyroll
Crunchyroll’s global growth has been unbelievable. They began in 2006, and it took them about ten years to hit one million subscribers. It took them only two years to break two million. And it was less than that to run three million subscribers where they are today. But, they don’t just measure success based on paying subscribers. Apart from this, they have an active and growing AVOD community of over 70 million registered users.
According to Joanne Waage, General Manager, Crunchyroll, “Our goal has always been to grow the love of anime globally, and these numbers show our labor of love is paying off — and this is just the beginning.”
