closed captions only for certain apps

is there anyway to have closed captions turned on for only certain apps? I have an app I watch anime on, so since it’s in japanese i turn the closed captions on using the app’s settings, not using * on the roku remote. once i do that tho closed captions turns on for the roku settings and they will play no matter what future app i use next. i’ll turn off the cc, but then when i eventually go back to my anime app they’re off again and go through it all over again. anyway to fix where i only have them on when using my anime app but off for all other apps without having to keep toggling it manually every time i switch between them?

No and in fact it's part of the certification requirements that channels use the global setting.
