CR has no problem with violence, Funimation simply got the licensing rights and CR didn't.

Sometimes there are shared rights (that happened with Attack on Titan), but sometimes exclusive rights are negotiated, or getting the rights would be too expensive.

BTW, I'm closing this thread, since individual "help" threads aren't allowed. In the future, for Anime related questions where you seek information or advice rather than discussion, please post in The Anime Help Thread (it's "stickied" near the top of the Anime forum).



For currently airing shows, it's also fine to ask in the discussion thread for that show. In this case that's:-
