I think that should be pretty obvious. A service like Crunchyroll would hurt profits quite a bit for the companies in Japan. Crunchyroll is ONLY a method for them to promote their works overseas.

Yep! You must pay your anime overlords the 500 dollars for that privilege if you miss the broadcast!

Virtually every license CR obtains for streaming an anime excludes Japan, including those that are otherwise worldwide. If you think about it, the reason the publisher excludes Japan should be obvious.

That's too bad!! So from what others are saying, Japan is blocked from the streaming? So if you had a CR members account, you still wouldn't be able to watch most, or worse, all the anime? I would cancel my subscription ASAP if I were you, but if I'm completely off the topic...sorry in advance.

I re-read your post, so you didn't move to Japan? You're just visiting? If so, just tough it out. XD

Actually I am pretty sure the entire site other than the forums is blocked. I tried linking my friend who lives there a news article and it wouldn't let him read it.

Although if this guy wants to watch CR, he could just get a proxy. It might be slow though. I use a proxy on my Android to DL some of those japanese only apps and games.

Two of my philosophies are , where there is a will there is a way. And, there is nothing that one human can make, that another human can't break.

It says it right there at the bottom: "Not yet available in Japan" and, really, why would it be?

Are there any Japanese streaming websites for anime? I personally wouldn't like the idea of having to brick off a set time every week (usually late at night) to watch tv shows. A online stream I could watch at my convenience would be so much better. They can even keep the commercials in as if it were a broadcast for all I care as long as it was a free HD stream

Yeah but the problem would be when you don't speak Japanese perfectly yet so I can't understand all of it on the tv...
私の日本語はまだあまりよくないです。
とにかく ありがとうみんな!

I am unsure of why you're in Japan and I'm not picking on you or being judgmental but...

If I were able to go to Japan the last thing I'd be doing is watching anime.
