Sorry if this is the wrong place to post or if the post has been already created before... my first post ever creating on here. So the issue I am having is that on my android tablet when I go to search for certain anime (e.g. Sacred Seven) the anime does not show up as if it does not exist. however, when I go to search the anime on PC it shows up. Are there just more titles available to watch on PC than on the Apps? I have Premium, I also just put mature content on to see if that would help but still no luck. If there is a way to get all anime on the PC version of crunchyroll to the apps with a simple fix the help would be greatly appreciated seeing as I use my tablet for watching most of my anime. Thanks in advance!

For Sacred Seven, it looks like the license expired or whatever and it was pulled.

There is a page for it on the website, but no videos. That must be why it doesn't show up in the app. Any other examples?

I've moved this to the Android forum of the Help category.

There are several reasons this can happen in general. As mentioned while there is a page for this show, there aren't actually any episodes for it, and if you look at the alphabetical list even on the PC the show isn't on the list.

Another common reason for some shows, as you mention (I'm just pointing it out for others) is that an account isn't set to Show Mature Content. Apps have different standards than CRs site so something that isn't filtered out by default on the site may be filtered out on an app unless you change that setting.

It can also happen if the region detected on the app is different than detected on the PC and the show is available in one the detected regions but not the other.

It doesn't exist. The license for that show expired on November 25, 2012:

The license is currently among a group of Sunrise shows Sentai licensed in 2013, but the only one of those they've actually gotten thus far is Big O. (Funimation's Bandai/Sunrise licenses have also been slow in coming, although they've had more progress).
