Hello there
I recently just got my membership for this site so far its awesome. Been watching a lot of Anime's. But i was searching for one which is airing right now and couldn't find it.

Then i realise there are a lot of Anime's which aren't on here. WIll they ever come on here eventually because if not I will continue my premium payment because a lot of the animes which aren't on here i need to watch!

Thanks for your time.

Moved to Site Support / Minor Questions.

Crunchyroll offers only anime which it has acquired legally via a license, but they aren't able to obtain the license for every anime in every region.

Because they do this, your support (through premium membership payment or watching ads) goes back to the anime creators--something which does not happen when you watch anime on sites which have not licensed what they show.

That said, which anime were you looking for, and what country are you in? If it's something that CR truly doesn't have in your region, some of our users may be able to suggest another legal source for it.

ETA: You might want to take a look at The Show Discussion Index thread! as it lists many current season shows (scroll to the bottom and open the spoiler to see Fall) and who has licensed them (it doesn't have absolutely everything, but it's not a bad starting point). Check out the links to the Winter and Fall threads that are in that first post as well for more info about these recent and upcoming seasons.

Short Answer:
No.

Longer:
Some anime has not been licensed at all because nobody grabs it to license.
Some anime has been licensed by other sites and thus will never be on here because CR cannot obtain the licensing rights.
Some anime may be region-locked, and depending on where you live, you may never see it on here until you move far away.
Some anime may have been licensed by CR, but was taken off of the site for some reason.
Etc...

http://www.funimation.com/ is a legal site and has anime that CR will never have because Funimation holds the exclusive licensing rights.

https://www.daisuki.net/ is a legal site and has anime that may air ahead of CR, but most of their selection is shared with CR.

Of course, you can download illegally/torrent but I won't recommend that... because it's illegal.

It's not that I really need to worry or anything because i already have it Queued, but if you go into the Genre search you can't find Hunter X Hunter. I don't know why but i just felt like looking around and saw that it wasn't in any of the places that seemed normal for it to be (action, shounen, adventure, ect.).
