So non US subscribers are eligible to give you money every month, but not eligible to enjoy the same privileges as a member from the US? That's not cool crunchyroll. Shame on you.

The reasoning has pretty much been given in these posts:

As mentioned on Page 1, we're starting with US & Canada and working to expand beyond these territories.
I'm so terribly sorry that we weren't able to expand beyond that for this first iteration of the contest, but that said we're going to be giving these away 4 times a year.
So, please bear with us as we work on availability.
Putting this together was A LOT of work.

The issue is not racism, and not really even their choice. Doing globally available contests is actually really difficult due to different laws about giveaways and contests in different countries. As someone who held contests for an online game previously, this was also an issue for us.

Why not regular Premium members? Especially senior members who have been here for years? Suddenly you have to pay double for not much more , and now you aren't apart of any contests?

Not to sound direct or anything, but have you read my message?
Quebec is part of Canada. Why should it be specifically excluded from the rest of Canada?

I'm not premium plus member but I see no problem with it. Also the amount for the plane ticket itself if your not in the Americas will be more than what you can pay for with years of subscriptions.

If I might, I am glad that this contest was announced. I have also been struggling for I think 30 minutes on this reply to come up with a reason to support this that doesn't involve a long drawn out history of mine to this site that would be ignored . What it comes down to in the end is that I have held a fierce loyalty to Crunchyroll for years now that only strays when it has to (For Hellsing Ultimate). I have been paying for premium since my trial ended and I didn't want to lose all the benefits that came with it. Sometimes scraping the barrel to make sure I could. I live in Wyoming, and there is little to no culture here sadly. I am enraptured by Japanese and Chinese culture and I would really like to visit Japan one day. I have been paying for what is now the premium+ since the manga arrived and I feel it was worth it. I am addicted to this site, I check by multiple times daily and a little disheartened when contests are announced as to me it felt like they were aimed at trying to get more people to join the premium side instead of those who had already chosen it.

I feel this contest gives me the opportunity to take a more active role here, to the extent of fighting for its merits on an online forum. I am lucky to have a chance to enter the first one, but what is even better, is that its been announced that 4 of these will happen giving us all a greater chance to take what I would hope to be a life changing trip for those who aren't positioned in the best place to. As the contest grows other countries will have the chance and I hope that everyone can understand that. Give the staff the chance to organize the contest on a wider scale.

So for the last bit, I wish everyone who does enter good luck, I wish good luck to those down the road when it opens and I support Crunchyroll's premium+ and if you don't have it, please consider upgrading. With more signing up the staff will be able to acquire the rights to more titles, to grow a little bit bigger and be able to do even more fun contests down the line.

May the most extravagant tiny essay win!
