Heya, I'v recently got into the "Fairy Tail" anime series, and I have one question...why is there a HUGE gap of episodes from episodes 1-39? I thought it was kinda odd seeing how we are getting the newest episodes of this, and a bunch of other anime. I'v been watching a few episodes on other sites (no choice, crunchyroll <3) but the quality just doesn't compare to Crunchyroll!

tl;dr where are episodes 1-39?
P.S. if there is already a topic like this im sorry for making a double, if so can anyone provide the link?

THANKS!

Well, CR is weird. For some reason, it doesn't show 1-39. But if you want to see 1-39. Try [ link ] or [ link ] or [ link ].

Hope this helps.

If you go the main page of Fairy Tail here on crunchyroll it clearly says at the top "Fairy Tail is only available for Premium Members. All videos will only be available [for] 30 days after its launch."


Why that is it doesn't say. It was probably the only deal they could get to simulcast it or something.

I admit it's dissapointing to me as well because i really enjoy the series and would like to rewatch it from the beginning without having to resort to illegal means. Since one of the main reasons I became a paying member was so I could watch the series.

It has to do with rights and what deal CR was able to work out I guess. The plan is to make us buy the DvDs when we can't watch it here anymore. Needless to say and as the OP demonstrated, it's not a brilliant plan.. These people need to understand is that the only way to control your content these days is to be the best provider of it.

Chances are CR did what they could in this case.

@LikeOmgIts_Anna, thanks for the other links, if it doesnt work out on the site that im usuing now ill try those! :]

@Michiyo_Fujiwara, im already a premium anime member, so i can watch 40+ anytime i want really. but i havent seen the episodes prior.

@Rumbidzai, i agree and and also came up with that theory. but its extremely curious why they were able make a deal to air the new episodes, and not have the full series. i guess ill have to write a letter or something asking why, and hope for a response.

So what you're saying is that videos (for Fairy Tail) will be removed 30 days after said video/episode airs on crunchyroll, and will no longer will be aired on this site?

Yes, those are the terms for having that series here and will remain that way unless we are able to renegotiate the deal.
