USA! USA!

No, but for real though, I'm sorry to hear about that.

A number of recent series are available through other outlets, such as http://daisuki.net, http://wakanim.tv and http://alltheanime.com. Look around a bit and you may find a lot of the stuff you'd like to watch is legally available in your region.

You have my sympathy.
Well, I guess there's nothing else you can do since a company in your place has to license the anime you want.
Try Daisuki.net since they said that they will do things World Wide.

I don't blame you I live in the USA myself but hate the fact there are country's out there that are so screwed over because of all this license bullshit I believe the UK is the main country that is effected by lack of licenses but of course its not the only country that has a hard time being able to watch the anime they want to watch.

We're not as bad off as it can sometimes seem. Percentage-wise we actually do pretty bloody well.

The problem is that where we often lose out is on some of the more anticipated titles. Which has a tendancy to make us very vocal and defensive.

That's not to say I think we're not getting a raw deal here in the UK... Just that i know some places have it worse off and that, ultimately, it has to change on a larger scale.

Yeah, so this is getting closed as a rant, because making an account within 24 hours just to complain that your undisclosed country is getting the shaft doesn't work.

Crunchyroll has to bid on its content just like its competitors, and not only that, attempt to get multiple regions as well. If you want to blame anyone, blame production and broadcast companies that monopolize content distribution.
