So, I have a question.
My brother lives in a town not too far away from me, He didn't have any pop-up saying that "Attack On Titans" wasn't available in our region. But it wasn't possible for me at all to watch it here on Crunchyroll.
We live in Norway.
So, why could he watch it on his Crunchyroll?

REALLY Annoying..

Whether he intentionally did it himself or not, CR probably thinks that his Internet connection is coming from a country that it has the license to show it in.

In any case, I believe it's in the Terms of Service or something that a person isn't supposed to be tricking the system or whatever.

He didn't do anything with his settings at all. That's why it was so strange.
So, Attack on Titans isn't available in Europe?

May have been a glitch or something then, and/or his detected country was something other than Norway (for some odd reason).

But yes, it is available in a couple parts of Europe. According to the official release thread: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-799349/watch-attack-on-titan-earlier, it is available in the "United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland." Unfortunately, Norway isn't one of them. There are other services within Europe that stream anime legally that may have it, though. I know France has http://www.wakanim.tv/, and it has AoT. However, I'm not sure if there are any for Norway, though.
