People are all trying to find ways to pass the time during the Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19). While others are streaming films and TV shows, anime fans are on Crunchyroll amidst the mandatory self-quarantines. So it's no surprise that the streaming service is now trending on Twitter. On the other hand, people are freaking out because Crunchyroll has been trending under Food.
Fans have been tweeting about the anime that they have been streaming on Crunchyroll since self-isolation was declared and it looks like Twitter is finally catching on. On the other hand, it looks like the social media platform was a little confused about what those tweets are truly about.

Some fans were worried that it meant someone in a popular anime has been killed off.

There's also the possibility that there's a special discount on Crunchyroll now. After all, we still need hope at this time, right?

Luckily, it looks like the "Crunchy Roll" food trend (seriously, I can't stop laughing at this) is over. Nevertheless, fans still can't help but praise the service for being stable during COVID-19.

Interestingly, all the attention on Twitter may have led to more people trying the service out for themselves. Some even decided to make a hilarious comparison between Crunchyroll and other streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and HBO Go.
Crunchyroll is known for its popular featured shows like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Naruto Shippuden, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, and Radiant Season 2.
