Ever try using a proxy or VPN? Either one can mask your IP to make it seem like you're in the US. It would be better if CR could get all the shows without region lock, but it's a good workaround

There's always the neat little tekst "we're trying to solve this blabla", but I haven't seen any of the shows that are geolocked, to be unlocked. I know it's not the fault of CR, but the licenseholders, but it SUCKS.

Can't you guys make a special European account or something and charge less, because it's totally unfair to pay the same amount of money for less content.


Actually, in a certain way, it IS CR's fault: If they had funds available, they could buy licenses for more countries. They are obviously giving priority to the countries which generate the most income for the site, but that becomes an endless chicken and egg problem. Europeans won't buy memberships because there aren't enough shows, and CR doesn't license shows for the Euro zone (unless they are really low-cost) because they don't have enough members.

A discounted membership for EU zone members would be ideal. In addition to the geo-location code, CR could put restrictions on viewing shows based on the membership level. That would be similar to what they do for Anime vs. Drama vs. Universal memberships now, and would prevent people from scamming extra shows out of the cheaper membership. With any luck, that would generate more volume in Europe to make up for the reduced income from each membership.

Jep, I can only agree with you. I bought my membership to legally stream new shows in 720p. Now I still have to download them, even though I paid for it to watch them the legal way.

He shouldn't have to circumvent the site and violate the terms of service to get a reasonable value for his money. Maybe CR should price memberships at $3.00 per show per year and you pick the ones you want. Otherwise come up with different bundle prices for different licensing regions.

This looks really adorable. I might watch t his just for the cuteness factor.

I wonder how they decide which countries to get licenses for. Is it by paying crunchyroll membership? That would make sense. Perhaps it has something to do with sponsorship and adds as well.

I'm lucky I'm in the us; sorry guys:(

More kiddy shows.... I am greatful that you guys are getting us more shows though. Even though it seems that all of it's geared towards the male audience or involves cutesy children. Aw well, its still progress.

I hope tomorrow we discover that Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3: Owari Naki Unmei is the last announced simulcast.

That or something that isn't zone restricted cause it sounds like lots of people are getting the short end of the stick due to region restrictions.

I'm hoping for "Baka to Test to Shokanju" to be the next announced series... But I think that it probably won't.
