I was just wondering why the Crunchyroll anime of the year is not available on Crunchyroll. I've also really would like to see it as well that being of course "Made in Abyss" and also why is it so difficult to get the full seasons of "Darker Than Black".

Funimation's licence for Darker Than Black season 1 expired so unless someone wants to invest the money to renew the licence there won't be a legal way to access it. The problem with relicensing shows is that the most income comes from the first wave of viewing/DVD sales. If most of the audience has seen a show it doesn't make sense to pay for an expensive licence that only a few people will pay you to watch.

Made in Abyss was licensed by Sentai. If you are in the USA it is available through Amazon Prime. If you are outside of the USA it may be available on Sentai's HiDive service (depends on region). As Sentai run a rival service to Crunchyroll they are unlikely to sublicense the series to be shown here.
