Why on earth would you stream a censored version of a show? That makes no sense. Especially for PREMIUM MEMBERS, who PAY FOR THEIR MEMBERSHIPS AND ARE OBVIOUSLY ADULTS.

What a buncha krap!!

This has been covered before.

For simulcasts or shows that were acquired as simulcasts, CR is provided with the broadcast version, which will include the same censoring that was present in that version when it aired in Japan. Uncensored versions are reserved for the DVD release and sometimes premium channels. Titles acquired as library titles are typically the DVD version, and thus uncensored.

Could CR get the uncensored versions? In most cases, yes, but it would cost a lot more. How much would you be willing to pay, and what percentage of people do you think would say the same?

You also forgot to mention the newer show are form the Broadcast from Japan. It's exactly as it was shown on TV. There is nothing Crunchyroll can do about this at all. If you want the uncencored version you'll have to buy the DVDs at least that's how things work over there.
