I'm new to crunchyroll. I must be a complete idiot, because I can't find the Fairy Tale anime. The only other popular place I found it was on Funimation, but they have ads. I would totally watch it if it were crunchy roll. What's up crunchy roll?

They had it at one point but someone correct me if i'm wrong, they were only allowed to have a certain number of episodes. There would only be 6 episodes? at a time and when the anime took a break, each week a episode was taken off resulting it being non existent on this site.

^I don't know if it was 6 episode or 4, but that's the general idea of what happened. I assume that, once it starts airing again, CR will have the new episodes. At least, I hope so.

Now this is just my personal opinion I don't mean to offend you or anything. But fairytale seems much more like a cartoon then an anime in my opinion. This is partially because the opening where it's like "make sure you have the lights on in the room, and you're not sitting to close to the tv before watching!"

If you like fairytale you might also like these anime's that are on crunchyroll:

-Hunter x Hunter (one of my top 5)
-One Piece (one of my top 5)
-Magi (one of my top 5)
-Kill la Kill
-Log Horizon (one of my top 5)
-Sword Art Online (one of my top 5)
-Strike the Blood
-Attack on Titan
-Bleach
-Nobunaga the Fool
-Nobunagun
-Naruto Shippuden

(these are based on my personal preferences)

Let me know if I helped out!

FUNimation has the licensing rights to Fairy Tail, that is why you will only find it there (legally). I haven't watched it there yet, but if you subscribe I think the ads will go away (some of their shows allow this, some don't, matters if it is an Elite video or not). When the new episodes premiere chances are extremely likely FUNi will only have it, though they might work out a similar deal that CR had in the past.

When CR aired it their rights only allowed them to keep an episode for like 20 days or something like that, so thats why it ended up only being like half a dozen episodes out at any given time before it finally finished airing so after a month or so it was completely taken off the site.

Also since I am a grammar nazi: Fairy Tail not Fairy Tale.

Its gone because part of Crunchyroll's deal to stream it world wide required them to remove each episode after 30 days. Also buy the Funimtation DVDs, i don't care if you watch it free now as long as you pay for the DVDs later. They've already released up to episode 84 (plus the movie) with the next set of episodes coming out February 4th so not like we have to worry about them dropping the series but keeping up the support means they'll prolly go the sequel series as well.

Welcome!

As others have said, CR's arrangement was to only have episodes available for a short time after airing, so right now Funimation or DVDs are good options. I know we hope that once Fairy Tail returns, it will reappear on CR also.

Right now I'm closing this thread because it was more of a "help" thread and those aren't allowed per CR's site rules' and I also don't want it getting confused with the new thread anticipating the return of Fairy Tail.

There are a couple other threads that can be used for requesting help/information, so I'm listing them here for future reference.

The Anime Help Thread (it's stickied near the top of the Anime forum)

Site Support / Minor Questions forum (for questions specifically about using Crunchyroll)
