why is it that CR has naruto, bleach, and even fairy tale; but not one piece?

and as far as fairy tale goes, why is it that we only have the five latest episodes?

i feel the money i spend on my premium membership could be used on better things. such as a jet pack!!!

Theres plenty of threads about this. Funimation owns the rights to One Piece so you can pretty much assume its never going to happen.

This is a copy/paste from member: Agila61


It took a big push to get Naruto, and then another big push to get Bleach. And Japanese production committees often seem to judge things by popularity in Japan, so since One Piece is the most popular of the three, it would be the hardest.

Plus One Piece is broadcast on FijiTV and simulcast by the DVD distributors Funimation, where Naruto and Bleach are broadcast on TV Tokyo and were distributed without a simulcast by Viz.

It would be the first time that Funimation and Crunchyroll ever cooperated on a title. Indeed, it might require something that Crunchyroll has never done before, like being an affiliate for a Hulu stream for US ad-based streaming.

So One Piece is the hardest of the "Big Three" to get onto Crunchyroll.

Ive got no idea about Fairy Tail. I'm pretty sure they all used to be available so seeing only 5 episodes available to full members is kind of news to me.
