Is Crunchyroll Free With Amazon Prime?

Crunchyroll is the premier way to stream anime streaming services outside of Japan. Amazon Prime membership comes with Prime streaming, but does it have Crunchyroll?

You get a free 30-day trial subscription to the Crunchyroll service to watch all the anime you want and then decide if you want to continue with the Crunchyroll Free Tier or move up to one of the paid subscription tiers.

Anyone can watch Crunchyroll for free as long as they don’t mind streaming in 480p and watching ad-supported video streams.

If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you get Crunchyroll 30 days free when you connect your account with your Twitch account.

You will get ad-free anime shows and movies broadcast in Japan an hour after they air. 

Such popular titles as Attack On Titan (along with several other titles available).

There is no direct way to watch Crunchyroll on Amazon Prime streaming, but the app is readily available on all devices, including the Amazon app store.

Crunchyroll works well with the Amazon Fire Stick TV as well. It is also available on all Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, and most smart TVs.
