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.
