BECAUSE it censor out stuff for anime like Demon King Diamon which makes it more suitable for me to watch at work(even I work alone) it's a ethical related thing on my part.




When I'm on the clock, I take everything professionally.

From their FAQ: [http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-595554/cr-un-official-faq]


10. Why do I get something like this "Sorry, due to licensing limitations, this is unavailable in your region."?
There are some issues concerning availability in countries outside of the US. Some countries can download a certain videos without a problem. If that happens, the company cannot sell their products. However, Shinji is currently working on that. It should be available someday in the future.


Your question has been asked a billion times already. Check in the Help/Support area: [http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumcategory-9/helpsupportfeedback] or run a search.

Just like Hairbelly said I would check out those links that were just posted.

In the end it comes down to costs and rights. Sometimes a show simply costs too much to get the rights in a given country, sometimes a different company already owns the rights to stream that show in said country and those rights were never available to begin with. Sometimes a company just doesn't want to sell the stream rights to a given country for whatever reason... Also there are a few rare cases where a show might not be allowed for streaming in a given country due to law restrictions.

So pick your poison it could be any of the above. Rest assured CR does it's best to get as many shows as possible and to get each show it does acquire into every region it can!

Thanks for using the CR forums and I hope next time we will be able to get all the anime you like in your region as well!
