Dunno if this has been posted anywhere else, but I couldnt find it ;/

I was browsing the Anime collection on this site and I came across Fairy Tail, It seemed pretty cool but not all the episodes are there. I was just wondering why, Is it due to some legal problems or somthing?

this question has been asked so many times already and has been answered so many times already. Fairy Tail episodes are only up for 30 days after first airing it even says so on the page.

It has to be an issue with the licensing of the anime. They likely could not afford to post the entire series here when it was acquired. It was probably meant to be more of a simulcast for Premium CR members more than anything else. As such only the 5 most recent episodes are available at one time.

To add to that Funimation has licensed the first 48 episodes of the anime for release here in the U.S. and have been posting earlier eps on their website and Hulu. But I'm not sure if those would be available in Australia unfortunately.

Hate to say it but your best bet is going through channels not condoned on this site.

From the beginning, Crunchyroll only had the right to keep the Fairy Tail episodes for 30 days. To the best of my knowledge, it is the only series with a restriction of this type. It is also restricted to premium members only.

Funimation has licensed it, and currently has episodes 1-12 available for streaming, but of course those are only available to persons in the U.S. and Canada.

I'm sorry but we were only able to obtain Fairy Tail under a limited release schedule. As is stated in the following news announcement, "FAIRY TAIL launches on next Monday, October 12th at 5am PST to Anime Members, one hour after Japan broadcast and accessible 30 days thereafter". So each episode is only available on our site for 30 days and since all but the last 4 episodes were released over 30 days ago, they will unfortunately no longer be available. The same will happen to the rest of the episodes.

This is also stated on the Fairy Tail page in the "Availability Notes" and in the series synopsis.

So we would only be able to offer all of the episodes if we are able to successfully renegotiate the terms of the deal we made.

If you have any questions, please check or use the Help/support/feedback forum instead of creating a thread. Thank you.
