Well, crunchyroll have axed the CR Bucks system and might put into place a new system, so let's see where that takes us.
For now the most likely way to get crunchyroll is by subscribing and gifting yourself.
This doesn't really leave much of an option for a minority of people who doesn't want to go through the standard system for their various reasons.
Looking at the "Help" section, I've seen a lot of people wanting to get CRUNCHYROLL membership not due to the lack of funds but rather a lack of mean to transfer such funds or like to have another way of paying for it other than what's readily available.
For example: - You're someone that doesn't have a credit card or paypal account. a teenager - You're someone who prefers to pay on a manageable tentative monthly basis just in case you don't want to fully commit to a subscription base deal.
This is probably done to avoid overdrafts or just plain forgetting about "that random $7" that you're getting billed for every month.
- You got a gift card and don't know how to spend it, so crunchyroll comes into mind.
- You're a person in another country, and it's just hella complicated to get a subscription, i.e. - You don't want crunchyroll getting your personal information like your credit card number, so you trust an institution like Google Wallet to take care of that. There are many more reasons, but the point here is that the person, probably "you", wants a different way of paying crunchyroll for the membership apart from the subscription recurring program.
- Maybe you're a paranoid person who just loves Anime but doesn't want to be tracked by your spending habits, so you don't want to disclose any information because maybe the goverment or significant other might question your motives and so on and so forth. Before moving forward with this, a good part of this guide makes the use of CR BUCKS: Additionally, CRUNCHYROLL has provided different payment methods as shown below: The point of this guide is to explore the other payment methods that's probably more applicable to your situation and/or preference. I wanted to start out with GIFT CARDs because this seems to be one of the more interesting and suggested methods that I've seen on the "HELP" forums.
