Will it ever change? Possibly within your lifetime, but not likely within mine.

The reason some anime is still unavailable is that how licensing is handling is still determined on a regional basis, a legacy of when physical distribution or national broadcasts, were the only means of distribution.

I really wish CR had WIXXOS for US but due to licensing I guess they couldn't broadcast it.

Yes, Funimation has it for the US:

In the past there have been some shared English language streamings on Crunchyroll and Funimation, AoT and Nobunagun recently, One Piece and Fairy Tail right now but this season it seems that Funimation is getting English and Crunchryoll is just getting French and/or German, Europe et al for Selector Infected WIXOSS, Akuma no Riddle, Ping Pong and Kenzen Robo Daimidaler.

It seems no one got Broken Blade TV Anime for English though Crunchyroll still has the 99% similar movies.

My only guess is that the US is privileged for licensing efforts because of the much higher subscription numbers and general anime viewers there. Here in brioche country it's pretty damn disappointing how little we get access to on CR each new season.

Still, this is just guessing.

Yeah, I live in Canada and it sucks paying for a subscription and still not being able to watch the shows you want. Happened to me in previous seasons and it's happening again with Ping Ping the Animation.
