I recently downloaded the Crunchyroll app and got premium to start watching all my former favorites which I watched on [site that shall not be named], but I noticed One Piece is not on the app. I have no issues finding it on my pc and the Google version. Why is it not on the app if it's on the website??

I've moved this over to the Site Support forum and edited your post to remove name of pirate site--naming these is against Site Rules.

What app are you using and what country are you in? Do you have your account preferences set to allow mature content? (/acct/?action=video) I'm not sure that's an issue with One Piece but it's a common reason people don't see a show on an app even when they see it on the site.

I'm in the U.S. and see it on the Android and iOS apps.

I'm using the standard Crunchyroll app you can get on the main page of Crunchyroll when you're entering the site on a mobile device. I'm on Android as well, more precisely a Huawei if that makes any difference. I'm in EU as well, so it might be a filter or ban by the EU Federation, but I doubt that's the case, as I've been able to watch One piece on the website with my pc, without having to use a VPN.

Honestly I'm at rock bottom about this, I've tried changing the settings to show mature content, as other shows like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood wouldn't show either, as well as some of the Dragon Ball series.

Since CR doesn't have streaming rights for One Piece in Europe, then something, it doesn't have to be VPN, on your PC is bypassing the restriction, whether or not it is something you purposely did yourself. It wouldn't be your router, or even your ISP, or you would see it on the device too, so it is something unique on the PC. There are the only countries where CR has rights, so you are actually stating the problem backwards; it should be more like "Why can I see One Piece on my PC when I shouldn't be able to"

I'm unsure of what it could be then, as I don't have a VPN installed on my pc, and it's been completely reset with fresh install of windows several times. I've watched One Piece on multiple sites on my pc though, as well as read the Manga. My girlfriend watches it with no issues either, and she doesn't use VPN whatsoever either. She could watch it with no issues right after getting her new laptop set up from the store.

I was even just on CR on my pc to watch it, and I could find it and watch it with no issues.
Is it illegal for me to watch OP and other shows not available in my country, since I don't have the rights to watch it, and the sites I'm watching the show from doesn't own the rights, or am I just some sort of lucky?

Also, will CR be getting the rights for shows such as OP for EU countries, as I'd really love to be able to watch it via the CR app

Illegal is probably not the correct word, but it is a technical violation of CR's Terms of Service. You may honestly not know what is going on, but something isn't right. Possibly someone added a browser extension or something...

Go to this page and then scroll down to just above the footer section and see what your "Detected Country" is: /contact

Here's what you are looking for:


If it doesn't say Denmark, then your PC connection is being fooled into bypassing the geolocation detection somehow.

Does your browser use some data compression feature? In that case, it could be that it depends on a proxy located somewhere where the show is available.
