It has an active and growing AVOD community of over 70 million registered users.

Globally, Crunchyroll premium subscribers spend approximately 100 minutes per day watching their favourite shows. The most-viewed titles in the UK, quantified by views per subscriber, not total views, were Attack on Titan; Black Clover; Bleach; Haikyu!!; Hunter x Hunter; JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure; My Hero Academia; Naruto.

Commenting on the brand's growth, the company’s general manager Joanne Waage said: “Crunchyroll’s global growth has been incredible. But, we don’t just measure success based on paying subscribers. Our goal has always been to grow the love of anime globally, and these numbers show our labour of love is paying off -- and this is just the beginning.”

The benchmark came just as Crunchyroll announced that it had signed a deal with leading children’s brand Cartoon Network for the return of Toonami, the iconic anime programming block, in Latin America starting 31 August 2020. The partnership, initially for a year long, aims to deliver a selection of iconic anime properties to a new generation of fans.

“The team at Cartoon Network have been incredible partners in helping us grow the love of anime around and their Toonami block has been the premiere television destination for the anime community,” said Brady McCollum, head of global operations and international, Crunchyroll. “By powering Toonami’s return to Latin America with series curated by Crunchyroll, we can’t wait to create even more fans of the medium we love.”
