i have some questions. some times i have animes an there is no videos on it, and is not because there are new animes.
even, i can see ratings and comments but i cant watch it.

also if when im visiting any anime, it shows on the bottom other animes that "viewers also liked" and shows animes that dont appear in the web site, and i would like to watch.

please even i would pay more for CR but why this i happening? i can not believe that all those animes are not available on my region.... please i love the web site but please help us the users with this problems.

Can you give me some specific examples of shows that do this, as well as what region you are in?

There are pages for some of the anime, for comments and such, that the videos aren't up for. LAIN for instance is registered as funimation, however it has a page on here for people to discuss it.
Also, there are pages for shows that CR use to have the rights to where the videos were taken down.


http://www.crunchyroll.com/library/Serial_Experiments_Lain
^Example, in the yellow bar near the top it says "Note: There are no videos for this Series. This page is only for discussion and informational purposes."

Is that similar to the pages you are talking about? O_o
Could you give an example of what anime it's doing it for?

some examples are these animes, and i swear that those are only a small amount of animes that i have problem with.
and i know that there are problems for licensing in some regions, but i dont even see that message or any videos.

also i have seen in the comments on those animes by other viewers that have problems to watch it to.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/kurokami-the-animation
http://www.crunchyroll.com/xamd-lost-memories

also in this anime show only 5 videos that goes from 150 episode to 155, i can't see the rest from the beginning http://www.crunchyroll.com/fairy-tail

finally i also know the difference between a page like MikiSayaka said that are only for comments, but those are for watch the anime.

and i from Colombia.

What language do you have the page in?
From the list you posted you should be able to watch Kurkami the animation, but the rest:
As far as fairy tale goes, CR only has a license to show the most recent episodes, Funimation holds the rights for the first two seasons if you want to see it from the beginning.

While Funimation recently announced that they have acquired the rights to season two they still have only season one (episodes 1-48) available for viewing so episodes 49-149 are not available for legal streaming anywhere that I know of.

As was brought to my attention by TAO, apparantly Funimation did not purchase the entire second season, but only the first 24 episodes. So once FUnimation does finish producing the dubs for season two, they will only have up to episode 72 available for viewing on their site.

Sadly, the only way to watch past episode 48 currently involves not so legal methods. You can blame the anime studios in Japan that licensed out the show for shooting themselves in the foot and not allowing a legal means for people living in Japan and living outside of Japan from being able to legally watch older episodes.

They want you to buy the DVDs I guess but the early ones are out of stock

It is tough to be legit these days...

DVDs for the "middle" episodes are not available for sale (yet) in Japan, so you can't even watch them that way without English subtitles either.

Funny... I was just wondering this myself a few minutes ago. I saw a thread bumped up for Strike Witches the movie, and when I went to the second season of strike witches here on CR there were no videos and I was like wtf? I just assume its liscensing issues, but it was at some point available to stream here.

Crunchyroll had Strike Witches 2 as a simulcast, but it was also licensed by Funimation immediately afterward. It was scheduled to be removed 3 months after it ended, but CR was able to keep it for over 9 months after it ended:

As you are in the U.S., you can watch it at Funimation (SW2 is listed as episode 13 and later):
http://www.funimation.com/strike-witches/episodes?page=1

Yeah I saw it over there a few days ago while watching another series. Their streaming setup and format leaves a lot to be desired and I frequently have issues with their player. Im in a 2 week trial for the elite subscription but I'm cancelling it. I would have preferred to watch it here but oh well

Their website setup definitely leaves much to be desired. When I used their website, the most reliable way I found to watch videos there was to use Chrome, keep the Settings tab open and clear the cache after every video.

Using their Roku app definitely makes things easier. Even when the stream is interrupted, I can just click "resume" and pick up playing where I left off, vs. having to try and remember where the progress slider was when watching on the website.
