CR's focus is on bringing subtitles to non-Japanese audiences as soon as possible. Because of the high cost of producing an English dub, it doesn't make sense to spend that money when other companies, like FUNimation which has Twin-Tail, are better positioned to dub shows.

Occasionally, English dubs are added to CR, but in most cases, I wouldn't count on them being added to CR's catalog. If you'd like to see what shows include a dub, you can find a user-maintained list here.

Did you mean sub or dub? If dub, then eyeofpain provided the correct answer.

But you wrote "sub" and assuming that's exactly what you meant, then since this is one the shows that CR has in a very limited region, which does not include the UK or North America, I suspect that means they didn't get English language rights (Funimation has it with English subs, but they stream only to the US and Canada).

So if you are Europe, or the Middle East, or North Africa and can view the show on CR, but can only see it in French or some other language, I suspect that is why.

Indeed, we only have rights for German, French and Spanish, and outside of the US at that.
There is always a slim chance of this happening (of about 1 in 20 shows).
