This has been annoying me for such a long time, but all my favorite animes are not on this site. In fact, just a few animes over 300 eps and I can't understand why? The forum suggests there's alot of great series here, but I can't watch any of them... :/

Is there something wrong with my account?

Why does an anime need to be over 300 episodes? That's a pretty enormous amount of episodes, and I'd worry about quality taking a back seat to quantity.

If you want to find good shows on Crunchyroll you should browse the catalog by genre or by what's popular. The site has a lot of hidden gems that I am still surprising myself by finding. Just last week I was craving a good Slice of Life and I found Kids on the Slope hidden down in the catalog. For some reason it had forgotten to be cataloged as a slice of life. It turned out to be an amazing anime, and is now one of my favorites. That sort of scenario has happened to me a lot since I've been here...I can always manage to find something good if I look hard enough.

The forums in general aren't a good place to find CR anime because we discuss *all* anime on here whether it's on this website or not. Your best bet for getting user input on what shows to watch here would be go to to the recommended anime thread:http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-7173/recommend-me-an-anime-read-first-post and then requesting suggestions for shows within your preference that can be found on Crunchyroll.

I live in Norway, not common with any kind of manga/anime here.

No it's just just none of the shows I'd like to watch, except a few are on here. Naruto, Gintama, Fairy Tail and Bleach is, but after that there's a huge gap in shows. Almost every other show only has 12-20 episodes...

I have, and I agree there's some great shows here, like "Problem Children are Coming From Another World, aren't they?", "Unlimited", "AKB0048" and "Hakkenden".

I've been watching alot of other small animes here as well, but they're not all that. I'd love to watch some that's recommended, but after going through 10s of pages and serching up everything I only got access to 2 or 3 series :/

I don't know about Norway but in England we don't get access to quite a lot of stuff. I've not found any way to check what we're missing out on but I'm under the impression that North America get anime like Angel Beats and stuff from the current season like Maoyuu and Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? (basing this off of adverts I see on CR when I'm on the .com version)

Not much we can do really, I think CR focuses more on getting licenses for North America because that's where the majority of their audience are from.

There's your problem.
The damn licensers doesn't like us, so they order CR to block most anime for us.

More like: American rights for show = X, America + UK + Norway + Zanzibar = X + Y. Unless Y is a number that Crunchyroll can break even on, they'd be losing money.

That's why you rebel, and go the illegal way.
Not our fault that licensers don't want as much money as possible.

I signed up here when I realized that I liked anime so much I actually wanted to support the ones who made it. I guess this is the same for a lot of the people on CR, but at this point, with so many series missing I'm wondering if I should end my subscription . I hope they're trying hard to get these series to Europe and places without coverage as well, so more people can enjoy without pirating..

If you're a patient person, you could wait for the dvds to be released, then buy them instead.
If there's an Outland store near you, you could also go and buy dvds there, and other nerd stuff xD

Yeah, the Norway thing is a big factor in why you don't have access to more shows. However, even for us North Americans there aren't very many shows with lots and lots of episodes. 12-25 episodes are very common, and there are a few around 50 or so. But over a hundred? There just aren't very many. You've named the ones I'm aware of offhand.

Its amazing how the world wants free trade yet protect their intellectual property. Hey a lot of favorite music has been taken of You Tube because the bands original label has been taken over by European Union labels.So its not just anime.Again Free Trade stinks!
