Of new simulcast series this season, we have 18 and don't have 9. We also all 3 non-series simulcasts.

Of the 9, 4 were picked up by animax instead, and one presumably had its English language rights blocked by Funimation's campaign to support fansubbers.

That leaves Mikakunin de Shinkoukei and Sakura Trick, both of which look like deals with US licensors (although why CR can't go and try to get expanded rights to these I don't know), and Pupa and Robot Girls Z. The last of these is Toei, who hate us, so the only really inexplicable one is Pupa, which is awful anyway.

I have just found an app called name omitted, on the play store on my tablet. It has quite a lot of anime that Crunchyroll doesn't have, although I do not know if its legal also the interface is not as user friendly as the one on the Crunchyroll tablet app.

Doing a search on that on Google, the link to it on the Google Play store no longer works, so it appears it was removed. Likewise for a few other android app stores I checked. I would expect that if it offered illegal content, which it appears it does.

Some of the Android app stores that still list it include, "Watch 20,000+ free anime with English Subs/Dubs" as one of the features, which is far too high a number for any legal site. (Even if that were counting episodes and not titles, it would roughly be every anime episode of every series for a span of over 7 years).

Animax has exclusive deals on Nisekoi, World Conquest Zvezda, Chunnibyou and Hamatora for the UK. Hence why we in the UK can't watch them on Crunchyroll. Similarily, Wakanim UK has Kill La Kill & Samurai Flamenco.

Personally I'd prefer Crunchyroll to have everything, but money talks.

Aside from those, the only thing I'd like to watch on Crunchyroll but legally can't is "Engaged to the Unidentified"

its more too do with shifty region locks that are created by the company of said anime.
*i remember reading about it in MyM*

Its one of the odd reason why uk anime has to take this root: usa - australia- uk

Its also why some of are dub/subs can be glitchy.

Use a VPN tunnel to the US. Free, easy to set up, and you get the full anime and manga lists.
