I've been trying to find a reliable way to download the subtitle files from VRV/Crunchyroll, but I can't find anything recent/up-to-date. Anybody have some helpful advice?

You can use youtube-dl (command line), it's pretty easy to use.
There's only one problem, if the anime is premium, you need to have a premium account. Being the anime for free, you can download freely.
youtube-dl --skip-download --all-subs --sub-format "ass" "link your anime pag or eps"
youtube-dl --skip-download --all-subs --sub-format "ass" -u xxxxxxx -p xxxxxxx "link your anime pag or eps"
Whenever I try to use youtube-dl, it opens a black screen and stays that way before flashing the following text and closing itself immediately.
Usage: youtube-dl.exe [OPTIONS] URL [URL...]
youtube-dl.exe: error. You must provide at least on URL.
Type youtube-dl --help to see a list of all options.
It doesn't let me interact with it beforehand. I don't know if there's anything that my computer's doing automatically that's causing it, but I'm no expert.
You should not open youtube-dl.
To use it, you need to free the cmd on your windows (if it is not freed).
Windows 10 (and others) comes with powershell, this does not work.
After extracting everything from youtube-dl in a folder, right-click inside it holding shift (shift + right button inside the folder) and open the select the "open command window here" option, my system is in another language, then can be different.
Then paste the command with the URL you want to get the captions and give an enter.
Download youtube-dl: (https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html).
Download FFmpeg: (https://ffmpeg.org/download.html).
Extract youtube-dl to some folder on your disk (for example, G: \ youtube-dl).
Extract FFmpeg and inside the Bin folder copy ffmpeg.exe and ffprobe.exe into the folder where youtube-dl is.

You can not paste the command into the powershell window. You need to use CMD for this.

Okay, I'm very sorry for what I'm asking of you, but I'm very technically illiterate. I'm mostly lost without a step-by-step explanation, so if you would be so kind as to do that, I'd be ecstatic. Although, if you aren't willing to deal with me or my dumbass anymore, I completely understand.
Actually, you know what? I give up. I don't care anymore. Thanks for the help you gave me, but I'm done. Go out there and use your time on someone who knows what they're doing, unlike myself.
I have no problem helping you. What complicates most is the language, I think, because I am not very fluent in English.
I'm not understanding where you're going wrong. If you can explain the error, I can try to find a way out.
I also live bringing problems without solution here to the forum, Jagabo goes through difficult situations trying to help me, I am grateful to him for his patience. So do not give up.
I'm able to download the subtitles using Kuronoe's method. I think the main problem is that Weeb_Trash would have to type in "CMD" first when they open the PowerShell window. Windows 10 requires that.
As for me, I have a problem with downloading the correct subtitles. Specifically, from the Ace Attorney anime. I want to download the unlocalized English subs, the ones without the English names. Each time I downloaded a sub file, all of them turned out to have used the localized names. Does anyone know how to fix that?
Luckily, after testing so many downloaders, I found the latest version of Allavsoft updated to support the new change and can download videos and subtitles from Crunchyroll again.
