Hello all

I have just recently joined crunchyroll (legitimately 2 minutes ago) and i am having problems with the anime i am trying to watch. Anime such as Attack on titan and angel beats seem not to have any videos sorted within their page. i was wondering if this has something to do with my region. if this is the case I am disappointed that i spent cash on something that i wanted to watch and it is not here.

I apologize if this is a stupid question and i assume you get this all the time but i really appreciate the help.

Bum deal dude. Sounds like it's the region locking.

Most releases are for United States and maybe Canada. Countries outside of the North America have an even shorter list of series to play with.

Can't really say what crunchyroll is cooking up in the works for other region. Though, hopefully, you get to enjoy your Anime shows without resorting to questionable means. For now, one's just got to be a bit patient.

Really?! That sucks

Pay the same amount of cash and only half the content. Angel beats Is even licensed in Australia but can't be watched here. the main reason i joined crunchyroll was because it was a full legitimate website where i could watch all my anime legally and in full HD add free. but i can't even do that. well i guess that was a waste of money. Back to illegal sites i go...

Angel Beats was acquired as a library title (not as a simulcast), and like most library titles, was provided by a U.S. video distributor, which only had U.S./Canada rights to pass on to CR for the series.

Unlike the U.S. distributors, those in Australia and the UK seem to have no interest in creating a working relationship with CR.

Howdy!

While we try to get worldwide availability for all of our titles, due to the vagaries of licensing restrictions we cannot promise that every single title released on Crunchyroll will be available in all countries. Detailed territorial restrictions are displayed on each video page. We are continuously asking for more rights for more regions. Please be patient and check back for more updates! For a complete list of what is currently available in your area, please check out our Anime and Drama lists.

Also, you have not paid anything at all.
You are on a free trial.

Would you like me to cancel it for you?
