Um, Does Anyone Wait a Week to Watch Anime on Crunchyroll?

So lazy that I’m using a surprisingly old picture

Basically it’s just something I’ve been thinking about, or more or less from observations online, so no sense in worrying about coherency, worrying about right or wrong, or anything like that. The question is simple: does anyone actually wait a week to watch their anime on Crunchyroll?

Now we know by getting a membership you get premium service, 720/1080p, full library access, etc. Of course the big key is you get the anime simulcast an hour (well, generally) after it airs in Japan (and aside from the legal part). On the other hand, if you don’t have a membership, you get ads, the video played on SD, and you can’t watch the shows immediately. If you want to watch one of the simulcast shows, you get a 2 minute preview. I’m sensing something kind of weird here…but really, just overall, you’re either encouraged to go get a membership or…resort to something else.

Or maybe you do wait a week to watch anime on Crunchyroll. Which I’m wondering if people do. One thing that’s gotten me thinking more about this is Crunchyroll manga’s service. It’s convenient for me, as I’m forced to go read the latest My Wife is Wagatsuma-San (sneakily tries to convince people to read it) or UQ Holder exactly or just a few days when it comes out for free. Yep, there’s a 30 second ad, but it’s just an ad. I can deal with that. But now that’s the case, it kind of makes you wonder why doesn’t CR do something like that for anime? Of course, the differences between a 23 minute anime and a 16-18 (or maybe 40-50) page manga is pretty st–

Ok, I better get back to what I originally want to know: do you wait a week to watch anime on Crunchyroll? You can say no, you can admit it (I won’t kill you or anything like that), or just wonder about the situation, for better or worse.
