What To Do If Crunchyroll Adblock Not Working?

Crunchyroll is a popular streaming service for watching anime. But the frequent ads often make the experience annoying.

For this reason, users prefer to use different AdBlock for Crunchyroll to get an ad-free streaming service.

But what if your Crunchyroll Adblock not working? This is a common problem faced by users and there are ways to fix it.

What To Do When Crunchyroll Adblock Not Working?

Let us now follow the ways to stop ads from loading while enjoying anime on Crunchyroll.

Here are the measures that you should take while Crunchyroll Adblock is not working.

1) Update Adblock Extensions

Crunchyroll applies various techniques to stop adblockers. If your AdBlock extension is outdated, then it will not be able to outperform Crunchyroll’s security setup.

That is why you need to update the AdBlock extension.

Here I am going to show you how to block ads on Crunchyroll by updating the AdBlock extension with Chrome browser:

  • Open Chrome and click on the three dots at the top right corner.
  • Select More Tools, and then click on Extensions as shown in the picture below.


  • Go to the top right corner and enable the Developer Mode.
  • Click on the Update option. This will update all the Extensions.


  • Finish the process and open Crunchyroll. Check if the ads are blocked.

2) Reinstall AdBlock Extensions

If after updating the AdBlocking extension, you still see ads on Crunchyroll then try reinstalling the extension.

Follow the steps mentioned below to do so:

  • Open Chrome Extensions as mentioned in the previous method.
  • Find AdBlocker and click on the Remove option.


  • Restart Chrome and visit the web store.
  • Now search for Crunchyroll AdBlocker and add the extension.
  • Relaunch Google Chrome and now check if this has fixed the problem.

3) Use A Browser That Has Built In Built Adblocker

Opera has a built-in adblocker. Many users chose to use Opera as there is no ad pop-up while surfing.

But you will have to enable the adblocking feature after you download and install Opera.

Follow the steps to know how to block Crunchyroll ads using Opera browser:

  • Open Opera and click on Settings. You may also press Alt + P shortcut keys to open Settings.
  • Find the AdBlock feature and enable it.


Now open Crunchyroll and check if you can still see ads.

4) Use Another Adblock

The ever changing Crunchyroll can outperform your AdBlock extension or browser. For this reason, you may need to choose different AdBlocks for Crunchyroll.

Following are some Adblock extensions that you can try:

  • AdBlock
  • Adblock Plus
  • Ublock Origin
  • AdGuard
  • AdAway

5) Use Developer Tools

If the adblock extensions did not work for you to block ads on Crunchyroll, then you can use the developer tools to block the URL used to serve the ads. This will obviously need to be done each time you open a page, but it can still be worthwhile.

Follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Open your web browser and launch Crunchyroll.
  • Right click on the Crunchyroll page and select Inspect option.


  • Press Ctrl + Shift + P for opening Command Drawer.


  • Enter Show Request Blocking and press the Enter option.
  • Check the bottom of the next panel and click on the checkbox to Enable request blocking option.


  • Click on the “+” icon and enter in the box. Click on the Add button.


  • Now check if you can see ads on Crunchyroll. But remember to keep the dev console open to enjoy Crunchyroll without ads.

6) Use Guest Pass or Opt for Crunchyroll Premium Membership

If you can manage a guest pass to stream Crunchyroll, then you will be able to enjoy Crunchyroll without ads. The premium users get a passcode or an invitation ticket every month.

A newbie can borrow that and use all the prime features for 48 hours. So, you can request your friend for a Crunchyroll premium subscription code and enjoy Crunchyroll without ads.

If you can afford a premium membership for $7.99/month + taxes, then this will be the best option for you to get an ad-free Crunchyroll service.
