In a hard blow for anime fans in Argentina, the streaming platform Crunchyroll announced a price increase of more than 1000% starting May 1.

How much did Crunchyroll increase?

  • Monthly plan: Goes from $300 to $3,500, an increase of 1166%.
  • Annual plan: Goes from $3,800 to $44,000, an increase of 1163%.

Why did it go up so much?

Crunchyroll has not provided an official explanation for the excessive increase in Argentina.

What can be done?

Options for users are limited:

  • Pay the new price: This option is the least popular, as many users consider the increase to be excessive.
  • Cancel subscription: This is the option that many users have taken, despite the frustration caused by losing access to a wide catalog of anime.
  • Look for alternatives: There are other anime streaming platforms, such as Funimation, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, that may offer a better price-quality ratio for some users.

Reactions to increase

The price increase has generated great indignation among Crunchyroll users in Argentina. Many have expressed their discontent on social networks and have announced that they will cancel their subscription.

What does the future hold?

It is difficult to predict what impact this increase will have on the number of Crunchyroll subscribers in Argentina. The platform may lose a large number of users, which could force it to reconsider its pricing strategy in the region.
