this seems odd to me

Did anyone else notice that the show Viewtiful Joe disappeared from the anime list? The only way to get to the show is through the library or the search engine on Crunchyroll's site. It doesn't have an expiration date or time. I'm just wondering why it isn't in the main listing anymore. One can still watch the episodes of the show.

Are there any other shows that are like this? Is there documentation of all the shows that are up and available to watch on this site?

Something similar happened with Gravion and Gravion Zwei, except that in that case, there was text on the page for each indicating the videos had been removed, except that they had not (at that time; they have now).

I suspect Viewtiful Joe reached the end of the licensing contract, and was not renewed, but the removal was incomplete. In other words, if you have episodes you want to watch, I suggest you do it quickly, because they probably are not supposed to be there.

Maybe crunchyroll removed them for legal purposes. Or like Mr.AncientOne said, their license expired here.

I'm most definitely watching episode 23 right now, while I'm typing this message. Episodes are still up! Time: 2038 PST 10/10/10
