Will Crunchyroll ban me if I tried to use an anonymizer to watch videos not available in my region? Is it even legal?

That kind of thing may be illegal, depending on your local laws, but it's definitely against the site ToS, so that kind of thing could get you in trouble I know the region locking is a pain - believe me, we wish we could show everything everywhere as well, but that kind of thing is built into the licenses CR signs to air the shows.

I am unsure about the legality, but it would certainly violate CR's Terms of Service: /tos.

If you choose to go ahead with this, be aware that you risk getting your account banned if the staff discovers your account associated with an anonymization or VPN service.
