Crunchyroll allows you to download most of their shows offline.

The number of devices that you can download content to depends on your plan. Their “Fan” ($7.99) plan does not allow downloads. Crunchyroll’s “Mega Fan” ($9.99) plan offers downloads on up to 4 devices, and the “Ultimate Fan” ($14.99) plan on up to 6 devices.

Offline episodes will expire after 7 days if they are unplayed and after 48 hours once playback has been started. To reset the expiration timers, simply open the Crunchyroll app while connected to the internet. Renewal happens as soon as the account goes back online.

Crunchyroll launched a small slate of originals in 2020, including Tower of God and The God of High School.
