Imagine it's been a long week at work, finally, we get home and sit down in front of our sofa to enjoy the latest episodes of our favourite anime and... something is wrong. What is happening? Well, perhaps you've been having problems because of the Crunchyroll network error. Let's look at how to fix it.

Like services such as Netflix and Prime Video, Crunchyroll is a great service for all fans of anime and Japanese comics in general, but sometimes there are problems with the network and we are not sure what to do.

So let's look at how to fix Crunchyroll not working issue.

How to fix Crunchyroll network error

First of all, you might want to check that the service is working correctly by visiting DownDetector. If you're seeing many reports of the service not working, perhaps there's nothing more we can do except wait for the problem to be fixed on their end.

If the service is working correctly, then you might want to restart the device you've been using for streaming. Let's see what else we can do.

Switch off your VPN

Sometimes using a VPN might be problematic for some services, while they might work one day, perhaps the day after we are having problems connecting successfully with some services.

Try switching off your VPN and try Crunchyroll again and that might solve the problem.

Disabling the ad blocker

Perhaps on the device you've been using you have an ad blocker active, since Crunchyroll does use ads to serve you the content, that might indeed end up conflicting with the streaming service.

Try disabling the ad blocker and trying again.

Reinstall the app

If you've been using the Crunchyroll app, on Android or iOS for example, perhaps there are some problems with the app. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the app, along with clearing the cache and data.

That might indeed solve the problem for good.

Lower the quality of the video

Perhaps your current streaming connection is not fast enough to stream the video at the desired quality. By lowering the quality, you might have an easier time watching your favourite anime.

If that still hasn't worked, try rebooting your router as well as your device.
