Hello guys I'm new to Crunchyroll so I'm not sure what's going on with this.

but here is what's up. I notice you guys don't show some of the Anime i want to watch.

Before i was watching Anime from other free site and one of the Anime i was up to date is called Kingdom.

Anyway, now that i joined Crunchyroll, i really like some of the feature of this site and i can watch anime on my phone. that's really nice. but what i don't like is that some Anime don't even show up on this site.

is there some limitation or what anime not to show or something?

It's not like i'm asking for 18+ anime or something, it's Anime like Kingdom i was watching, and Hajime no Ippo the first 2 seasons i was watching and i couldn't find it on this site at all. I know it's showing 3rd season for hajime no Ippo but if i was looking for the first 2 season i couldn't find it.

I know i know, i can find them on other site. but the point of joining this site was so it's my one stop Anime site so i can watch any anime i want. If i have to pay for a membership and still not find all the Anime i want... i'm not sure why i would i do that...

please enlighten me or am i just not looking in the right place for Anime?

Thank you guys

Crunchyroll doesn't have every anime series. They have to form contracts with the studios to license the shows. If a show isn't on CR it means they don't have its license.

Koda89's got it right. The sites you've been using almost certainly do not have permission to stream all those titles, and are therefore pirating them. Crunchyroll does not do that--they only stream what they have licensed, and that means that a portion of revenue from ads and memberships goes back to the anime creators.

In the future if you have a question related to the site, or suggestions and feedback, please use one of the Help forums, such as:

Site Support / Minor Questions
Suggestions / Feedback

Also, premium members can let CR know which specific shows they'd like Crunchy to add--post in the What series/movie/drama/manga would you like to see on CR forum topic in the Premium Members group. Crunchyroll isn't able to get absolutely everything, but they try their best to get as much as they can! -- They just got One Piece!


For discussion about shows and chitchatting about anime, stick around the Anime forum.
