There is a country restriction for Japan (of all countries why this one??) for almost all Anime I watch normally at home in the U.S. I'm pretty much unable to watch anything even though I'm a premium member. Is there a way around this so I can watch them?

It is precisely because Japan is the county of origin that the anime on this site are not available there. If CR were to have the shows up hours after they air, then that would compete with the TV stations in Japan among other things. Being a premium member does not alter the region restrictions so, no, there is no way to watch them.

Watch them on tv. Your in Japan right? :P

If there was Crunchyroll on Japan, who would watch anime on their tv? It would be pointless. TV stations would go broke if that happened...

You could always location shift with a VPN service.

CR prices are much cheaper than Japanese VOD and Streaming options. So if you want the Anime to stay at these price points in the US then we all have to suck it up with the location restrictions.
