Wow thats a ton of movies you have there but Yu Yu Hakusho subbed, Rorouni Kenshin subbed, and Macross Plus subbed would all be awesome. THen there are a lot you have in that list that would be great that I have wanted to see like Record of Lodoss War and even Outlaw Star which would be amazing if Crunchyroll could get these series.

A couple of those you listed are here already:

Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

You may want to check the alphabetical list to see if I missed any others.

Martian Successor Nadesico: Prince of Darkness was here for quite a while, but the license has since expired.

A number of other titles you mentioned are licensed by Funimation, which means you won't be seeing them on Crunchyroll.

Your list is missing Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2, and Great Teacher Onizuka the absolute best of classic anime IMO. GTO is still my favorite anime of all time.


Would be great to see those on CR but all of them are already licensed by another American anime provider so it is highly unlikely CR can do anything.

The majority or your list is going to run into the same problem.

<-- me with the idea that this list will not be possible...

I have no idea how this "licensed" stuff works, but I was thinking something like netflix, I mean, the rights are for X company but we can see them anyway in netflix, right?

And yes, there are A LOT of series I miss on this list, this is the list I could think of... but feel free to add series to the list, the most the better...

The problem with Funimation is that if they license something first, they won't re-license it to Crunchyroll, perhaps because the see them as competition, whereas Netflix, Hulu, and their YouTube channels are seen as just venues. (None of them compete with Funimation for streaming licenses).

If you are in the U.S. or Canada, you can go to this page on the Funimation website, go to the "Watch Full Episodes" list at the lower right of the page, and see a scrolling list of all the titles they have (at least the ones they have streaming rights for; they have some titles that they have home media rights for, but not streaming).

You will find a handful of titles that Crunchyroll also has, but keep in mind the "license something first" I mentioned.

...long list...

FYI, there's a threads specifically for making requests over in the Premium Member Group. I see a star by your name, so you should be able to join the group, if you haven't already.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/group/CR_Premium_Members/forum

It's a sticky thread right at the top.

ETA Oops. Just realized what a very old thread this was, that apparently just got a little "bump."
