Hi everyone,

What has happened to one piece? I was watching it this morning and by 15:00 it was gone. Not in my queue or on the site/app. Is it getting updated or something?

I still see the episodes on the show page:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/one-piece

I also see it on the alphabetical list and on the "Popular" tab of the anime page (just after Hunter x Hunter at the moment).

I'm in the UK. Maybe it's a regional licensing problem? I just paid for a month of premium on my ipad so I can watch it and it suddenly disappears! Any advice? Should I contact crunchyroll in some other way?

As per the announcement thread, One Piece is only licensed for USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America. The fact that it let you watch it before was likely a problem with detecting your location and now it is working properly.

"If you can watch One Piece, your CrunchyRoll is functioning improperly. Please wait while we restore the proper level of non-service to our service."

Licensing is weird.

I know CrunchyRoll is working hard to license as much anime as possible for as many places as possible though.

It's back now? Odd. I don't want to get my hopes up, start watching it and suddenly loose it again. Has it been licensed for the uk now?

There is no news on that (and I would think that would be big news), so my advice is to watch as much as you can while you can, and don't log out.

You may want to check your "Detected Country:" again while it is working and make certain CR is detecting you as being in the UK. If not, then you'll know why you can see it (and that is will eventually disappear on you again).
