Crunchyroll seriously needs to implement the basic function that every other streaming service has. When you click on an episode that has already been watched, there needs to be an option to "start episode over or continue from where you stopped." I have had so may ends of episodes spoiled because of this. And to compound the issue it is almost impossible to start an episode from the very beginning if it has already been watched. I always end up starting a show from 5 or 10 seconds in because it is basically impossible to click at 0 seconds, and sometimes miss a line or two of dialogue.

It is disgraceful how behind the times crunchy is on this. Almost every single other streaming service has this implemented. And the fact that you have it available on your phone apps but not on the website is ridiculous. I am so close to canceling my service due to this issue. It really needs to be resolved. I am so fed up with this and hope it is being looked into.

Okay I just realized that if you press the [ key it starts the episode from the beginning, but still. The option when you click on an episode to either start from beginning or resume playing needs to be implemented.

Might be a nice option, I guess. I think it does start again if the stopped point was close enough to the end though.

Not sure I'd use it myself. Though I would like it if the "start from beginning if less than X percent/minutes away from the end of the video" had a larger "x." If I go to rewatch a series, and didn't wait through the credits one some episodes or something, then sometimes it will not start at the beginning again.
