Crunchyroll, the leading global anime brand, is expanding its services to cater to the rapidly growing anime audience in India. As of today, Crunchyroll’s application is available in Hindi on Android and iOS mobile devices, underscoring India’s importance as a burgeoning market for anime.
The company’s move to customize the User Interface (UI) for the Indian audience aims to provide easier access to beloved series, capitalizing on the increasing popularity of anime in the region. The localized experience began rolling out earlier this month across iOS on mobile, with Android launching today and web integration planned to follow shortly. Full rollout of the Hindi UI on Android is expected to be completed by the end of this week.
Inside the Crunchyroll application, Indian fans can look forward to:
- A comprehensive catalog of series and simulcasts, including hit shows like ‘Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc’ and ‘MASHLE: MAGIC AND MUSCLES,’ along with a broad assortment of music videos and concerts.
- Improved access to new and existing Hindi dubs, such as the highly acclaimed ‘Ranking of Kings: The Treasure Chest of Courage’ and the upcoming dub for ‘The Ancient Magus’ Bride Season 2′.
- Personalized recommendations based on viewing history and smooth navigation to watchlists.
- Customization features through a curated library of avatars and header images featuring popular series.
- Crunchyroll Premium members can benefit from offline viewing, enabling fans to enjoy their favorite series on the go.
- ‘Crunchylists,’ a feature that allows fans to compile a curated collection of their favorite anime series.
As Crunchyroll continues to connect millions of global fans with their favorite anime series, it is now extending a 14-day free trial for fans in India who are eager to explore their services. Anime enthusiasts can take advantage of this offer by visiting www.crunchyroll.com or by downloading the Crunchyroll application from their preferred mobile store.
