Region licensing is (generally) based on your physical location, and not on the website language or default subtitle language.

The Bahamas is not among the allowed countries listed for Irregular at Magic High School.

Website language can, however, cause a series to disappear from those shown as available. An example being those series licensed by Funimation in the US, but which CR has non-English licenses for in other parts of the world.

I would think Irregular should be available to the Bahamas, however, as its licensing includes both North and South America:

The Irregular at Magic High School is set to broadcast every Saturday starting on April 5, at 11:00 am Pacific Time and will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: North and South America, South Africa, Middle East, Africa, Arab League, and Europe excluding UK, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Algeria, Monaco, Tunisia, Germany*, Switzerland*, Luxemburg*, Austria*, Liechtenstein* and Italy*.
*Will only be available for 21 days from first air date.

That said, the ISO code (bs) for the Bahamas isn't listed in the <media:restriction relationship="allow" type="country"> tag for the show. I also checked for the ISO codes of a couple of other Caribbean nations, and they weren't listed either.

That's why I said "generally," and noticed the same about the country code. The official language is listed as English, so it shouldn't be grouped with any of the EU countries. Queen Elizabeth is apparently still the monarch, so maybe it's grouped with the UK? Otherwise, I can only imagine that it was somehow overlooked when the contracts were written up.
