Unfortunately the deal CR made to get Fairy Tail here only allows them to keep the episodes for 1 month. after that they belong to Funimation. It's a shame for those who want to watch the series from the start but we are lucky to get high quality simulcast of the new episodes.

Funimation has the older ones on their site, though I don't think they get the same quality as we can have here.

You can watch up to episode 48 on funimations site for free, subbed. The first 5 or 6 are available dubbed for free also. I thought they had more, but the video list ended at 48.

I was never too attached to Fairy tail but was still annoyed. I had waited a month or so to let episodes accumulate only to find them gone when I returned. For people who wonder under what circumstance do others go to illegal sites, this is one of them. You're watching it legally just fine until some company buys the rights and make you pay more to watch episodes you've already seen or stop you from watching it all together b/c after acquiring the rights they don't put out more episodes. The 48 episodes are only the first season according to Wikipedia. Seeing as how Japan is on season 4 and at over 160 episodes I don't know what they're waiting for. They could have at least let the seasons they have yet to release remain on CR. As I said, I'm not a big enough fan of the show to go searching for places to watch it. But I really don't fault people who may.

As Greylurker mentioned CR's license agreement for Fairy Tail only allows the site to show the episodes for one month then they have to be taken down. While it is a bit of a let down that you can't watch the catalog shows CR is still hope to the newest, and highest quality, streams of Fairly Tail episodes with our simulcast releases!

Feel free to check out Funimation's own service for older episodes, they should definitely be available there. Those in the United States can also watch Fairy Tail on Hulu through their partnership with Funimation. Here is a link for your convenience!

Just remember CR is still the source for the newest episodes with the best streaming quality. Thanks for using the CR forums and I hope you continue to enjoy our shows, including Fairy Tail!
