This taken directly from my review of Zetsuin no Tempest or Blast of Tempest as it seems to be known here.

"I'd been watching for Zetsuen No Tempest to appear on Crunchy Roll since the loss of Mega Upload. Seems my problem was that I was searching Zetsuen No Tempest or Civilization Blaster each time and never got a hit. Today I just kinda came across it while browsing. Which brings me to the title of my review. I think Crunchy Roll should refine thier search algorhythm to include the original Japanese titles if they differ from the title that they have licensed. It would make finding particular selections easier in my opinion. Just a little annoyed but that being said I've been looking forward to finishing this. This is good anime."

Now I know that this may be a rare occurrence but I still think it's a good idea. Any support or feedback is welcome. Tell me what you think.

Had you searched for just "tempest" right away, you would have found it easily. CR could probably benefit from adding alternate titles, but it's not that hard to search ANN for official titles, watch the /lineup page, or search by season on the /anime page.

For what it is worth, using Google might be better for locating shows on CR by any name. Google searches using both Zetsuen No Tempest Crunchyroll and Civilization Blaster Crunchyroll both resulted in the proper Crunchyroll series page as the first result.
