Dear 100 Hour Board,
I'm trying to be better about not illegally streaming TV shows, movies, music, etc. Is a free crunchyroll account (where you don't pay, but you see ads instead) legal?
Unfortunately (or possibly fortunately, depending on your perspective) the Board cannot give you legal advice.
Dear Russian Queen,
Anne is Certainly right that we can't give you legal advice. However, Crunchyroll is owned by a subsidiary of AT&T and has partnerships with NBCUniversal and other companies, so I think it's a pretty safe bet that it's legitimate.
