So if I can use FoxyProxy for Viz then why doesn't the same advice apply to Europeans for Crunchyroll ? Harder to fool?

Because it's against the TOS... Not that anyone even cares about those.

But it's OK for people to suggest I use one for Viz... funny world we live in today. Invisible Boundary Lines indeed, where's Rikka when you need her?

Apparently in the United States, they can prosecute you for violating the TOS:

I can't see CR pushing for anything like that for using a proxy. The link is another abuse of a law meant for something else, but that potential for abuse is why our current anti-terrorism laws are of so much concern to many U.S. citizens.

So interestingly, since Viz DOES have the rights for Canada, and allows for use from Canada, it seems I am not in violation of Viz' TOS by getting access especially since it doesn't tell me I am accessing it through Hulu... dum dee dum:

15. Geographic Limitations. Unless otherwise specified, Materials available through the Sites are presented solely for the purpose of entertainment and promoting programs, events, products, and services available in the United States and Canada.

I wish they'd just figure this stuff out so we didn't have to skulk around.

BTW I looks like lineup page is now region generated. I preferred when they showed all of them, now comparing is harder. You could just grey out the RR shows. Well al least it finally confirm Galilei Donna availability now.


You know, after checking that page, I happened to notice that Hunter x Hunter seems to have suddenly become available over here in Finland now. I wonder how that came about.

Kill la Kill will now also be available in the following territories: EU except UK


Yeah I noticed that. They called us out first, which tells a story in itself.

Legal alternatives to piracy only work if they offer a) the content you want, b) at a fair price, and c) without restrictions (DRM). Music has pretty much crossed that threshold now, so there's really no excuse not to pay for music. Video is many, many years behind, but I guess they started later.

Who knows, maybe in another 5 years services like CR will be a one stop, all you can eat place for legal anime. Right now it's, at best, deeply mediocre, and rapidly getting worse. If they don't turn things around, and quickly, they will find their UK subscriber base drops off rapidly. Their lack of explanation and apology for UK subscribers also tells a story, and not a nice one.

In short, treat your customers badly and they won't be your customers for long. Basic business, and something CR clearly don't understand.

People complaining when people in Asia never get anything..

Yes, when I was in India recently it was quite funny. I think there were only a few simulcasts available at the time. Naruto, Nyarko san, Mushibugyo, Folktales from Japan, maybe a few more shorts IIRC.

What makes you think Crunchyroll wants to exclude you? I suspect they would get a Worldwide license for all their anime if it was available and profitable.

Its usable, just the principle of the matter. I dont pay for anime to pirate it.

Note for UK folk; anime limited are severely hinting that they have the simulcast for kill la kill so keep an eye on that

Agreed and I am not suggesting this to anyone.

I hope you can see all the shows you want to see through legal means.

But Anime Limited doesn't have a website for simulcasts. All they have is a blog and a facebook fanpage.

I thought after the last 2 seasons we were headed in that direction but it seems not. Though maybe if anime limited are starting to get simulcasts going for the UK thats a good start

How do you know? Its really not hard to set up a website to simulcast, its essentially just any number of video streaming programs with a time lock. https://www.facebook.com/alltheanime/posts/427066404071882
