Granted, Crunchyroll doesn’t really put its subscription cancellation option front and center on its app and website. You have to do a little digging to figure out how to pull your premium status and stop paying for ad-free anime. Here’s what you’ll need to do, depending on if you’re a mobile or web user.

How to cancel your Crunchyroll membership on your desktop

Canceling your Crunchyroll subscription on a laptop or desktop is incredibly straightforward. Simply log into your account, click on your profile picture on the top right corner, and select “My Account.” From there, go to “Membership Info.”

This should give you the option to pull your membership. Look under your subscription name and information, and click the “Cancel Subscription” link. From there, you’ll just need to confirm that you want to pull your membership, and then you’re good to go.
