Hey guys,

Brand new on CR here and I am getting back into anime and the two I chose as soon as I got premium crunchyroll are fairy tail and attack on titan. The issue is when I find them both start fairly far into the anime. For example fairy tale starts at "the dragon king" which is episode 1 but I think season 2 or 3 and the same with AOT. Am I doing something wrong or completely missing something or are they actually not available? I am running CR on my ps4 at the moment.

Thanks for any help

Oh you should have the option to cycle or look through the different seasons , I cant recall how it is on the PS4 as its been a while since I've been on the CR app for PS4 but if you keep searching around the series you've picked you'll be able to find the beginning of the entire series rather than the beginning of the most recent seasons.

I think I found it on my phone and it has the option for "oldest or newest" but it doesn't seem to help. Maybe It has something to do with being in Australia but I'm a little disappointed I can't watch season 1 of those two anime.

Fairy Tail is missing episodes 13-48, for some reason those episodes have been difficult to license.

The first season of AoT may only be available on CR for United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland.

That was the case when it was simulcast in 2013, not sure if they've added to the list since.

That's probably it. Sometimes Crunchyroll can get one season of a show for a region even though it had been unable to get earlier seasons.

I'm not sure what that looks like on apps, but on the show page on the website if you see a message saying that Crunchyroll doesn't have videos in your region but you can see the episode thumbnails for a season (but not all) then that's the case.

Check AnimeLab -- they may have the seasons for Australia that CR doesn't.

(BTW, I've moved this to the Site Support / Minor Questions forum)

Animelab has 277 episodes of Fairy tail and 37 episodes of Attack on Titan.

Thank you guys! I guess I'll use animelab for some and CR for others as in Australia they each have series that the other doesn't and I really want to watch them. Forgot how much I used to enjoy anime it's nice to get back into it.
