Does anyone know why for some people (including Premium members) there are shows that don't have ANY episodes available? but for other people they seem to be able to access them as proven when i check the comments section... So far I've only come across this with Ikkitousen and Sora No Otoshimono. Also because no episodes can be seen (even though no problems are stated in series details), when i add it to my queue, it doesn't show up...

Either the licenses expired or they're not available in our region. In these two cases it's most likely the former.

If I remember correctly, they were streaming on Crunchyroll, but the licensing agreement had ended with these two series you have named. For Sora no Otoshimono, Funimation has the streaming licensing I believe. I can't remember for Ikkitousen though but I could be the same.

I've moved this to Site Support / Minor Questions, but the answers above pretty much cover it. There will often still be a page for shows that Crunchy used to have but has no longer, and you can still see comments on those shows. Likewise if a show is simply restricted from your region you can still get there from a direct link even if it doesn't show up in displayed listings--but there will be no episodes displayed and you'll see a message that it's not available in your region.

For a show to be visible in your Queue there needs to be at least one episode (or its placeholder) available. So even at the beginning of a season if a show has been announced but the first episode or preview isn't up yet, you can add to queue but won't actually see it in your queue until the episode (or its "coming soon" placeholder) is available.

Ikkitousen was here as a catalog title from Media Blasters, and when that company's license for it expired, so did CR's.

Sora No Otoshimono (both the original series and Forte had the same fate as many Kadokawa shows here on CR; they were pulled some time after being licensed by Funimation.
