posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The online media service Crunchyroll has over 400,000 reported paid subscribers — doubling its total in about one and a half years. Crunchyroll previously announced that it had over 200,000 subscribers at Tokyo International Anime Fair in March 2013. It reported 100,000 subscribers in September 2012, and TV Tokyo reported that Crunchyroll had 70,000 subscribers in November 2011.
The Anime! Anime! website estimates that Crunchyroll brings in 300 million yen a month (about US$2,780,000) in paid subscriptions, although this may vary depending on if a particular user also has Crunchyroll Manga and Drama subscriptions, or purchased a subscription on discount.
