If you got here, may the gods of anime be praised. You must be a great fan of this style of animations and the great shows it has provided such as Dragon Ball. Anime, manga, dorama, etc. are all rooted in Japanese film, but Crunchyroll isn’t Japanese at all. You guessed it – its American.
Crunchyroll is a subsidiary of Otter Media and serves the US and the world at large with anime content. It has a library of over 1000 anime shows that it has been collecting for the last 14 years since 2006 when it was born. Of interest in this article is one of Crunchyroll’s special features and on this article, you are going to know how to activate a Guest Pass on Crunchyroll.
And, what in the anime is Guest Pass?
If you are a premium member, you are eligible to a 48-hour premium plus given in from of what Crunchyroll calls a guest pass. What Crunchyroll does is that it offers you 2 days of premium plus content to show you what you are missing out on by being a mere premium member. Premium membership is the lowest-level package on Crunchyroll (not so premium at all, right?)
For every thirty days, you have the chance to experience PP (Premium Plus) subscription. This can be said to be a way for Crunchyroll to get more people subscribing to their premium plus package.
If you have just joined Crunchyroll, you are not eligible to get a Guest Pass until you clock thirty days on the platform.
Now, you are going to look at how to activate this teaser thing that Crunchyroll offers.
I’m a guest, can I pass?
You should know that the Guest Pass cannot be activated on the mobile app. You need to do it on a Windows, macOS, or Linux.
