Looks like you just answered your own question, there.

I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum, since it seems to be a request for info.

But I'm not really sure what you are asking. If you are finding it on another site you know only has content it's licensed to have, then that does mean it's not exclusively on CR.

Actually I didn't answer my own question. It's more of thinking CR had an exclusive on it since its premium only on here . Strange to see it somewhere else with all the content for free . Only 1 ad to watch and up to 720p HD to boot . Quite a number of current shows there too.

Is it Hulu you're speaking of? Not sure when they started showing it, but the fact that they have it does indeed mean that Crunchyroll doesn't have an exclusive on it, though possibly at one time they did. Also, if it is Hulu you're referring to it looks like you need Hulu Plus to get it in HD there, and looks like there's more than just one ad.

Could be the reason for it still being premium-only here on Crunchy is because that was part of the terms of negotiation. Toradora was one of the earliest shows Crunchyroll got legitimately, I believe, and there may have been compelling reasons then--especially if at the time they did have it exclusively for some period of time. Just some guesses about possibilities on my part.

It'll be pretty much speculation though, as I doubt CR is at liberty to provide too many details.

Okay, in your opening you said it wasn't a pirate site, but now you're suggesting differently. If it's a site that doesn't have legitimate rights to show the show, then the fact that they have it would be meaningless for purpose of determining if CR has exclusive rights to something. CR could have exclusive rights to something and those rights would be being violated if another site made the show available in a region that CR has the exclusive rights for.

Anyway, I think it's been established that CR does not have exclusive rights to Toradora anyway, so if that's really all you were curious about, I guess that's settled.

Not that strange. Some sites that are free may have more content than the subscription sites because basically they STOLE it.
