crunchyroll down

Crunchyroll is one of the most-used anime websites in the world, but it seems that the service is down for many.

The users have been having issues with the service in the last few days, but it seems that it’s down for many, so let’s see what’s going on.

Crunchyroll is down for many, and the cause remains unknown

Over the past week, many users had issues with Crunchyroll according to its Downdetector page. It seems all platforms, including PC, Android, Roku, Fire TV, and more, have been affected according to Times Now News.

However, there’s more trouble for Crunchyroll, and looking at the info from Downdetector, the number of reported outages spiked today with over 439 reports at the time of writing.

The cause of the outage remains unknown, and there hasn’t been any announcement from Crunchyroll regarding this issue.

Users on Reddit reported error 502 and this indicates that there’s a problem with the gateway:

Bad gateway, I guess some of their servers have been downed due to something

If you’re having this problem, try accessing the service from a different device, such as your phone, since that seemed to work for some users:

Android app on my phone is fine but getting the 502 error on my Firestick

Others speculate that this might be a VPN issue, and disabling it can help:

Ok, so for me the issue was that said domain was unreacheable though my VPN, once disabled it appears to work fine again

Many also reported that subtitles aren’t showing on Crunchyroll due to this error, and this is most likely caused by a server outage.
