Why is Crunchyroll Showing 502 Error?
The 502 Error on a website’ Bad Gateway server error response code often indicates the heavy load on the website. The reason being various users log into their accounts at the same time. Although, a team of developers is working to fix this issue.
Considering the fan following of an anime as popular as Attack on Titan, it was pretty obvious that there’d be many viewers glued to their TV screens in order to stream the latest episode. The Streaming website not preparing for the same is uncalled for.
Despite the fact, that the episode was aired a few hours back, fans will still have to wait a bit longer to watch the latest episode.
For those, who can’t really wait any longer – Attack on Titan Shingeki no Kyojin is also available on the following platforms –
- Netflix (for selected Asian countries)
- Adult Swim Toonami
