If you're talking about episodes 13-48, I think those are stuck in some kind of licensing hell.

Funimation has them but they're subscriber only, while other subbed episodes have a free option.

So there's probably something odd about those episodes in particular.

Get a Funimation subscription and you'll be good to go.

Weird, I still see it listed. Have you tried clearing your cookies? It could be that it's listing you as in the wrong country or something... does /fairy-tail/episode-1-fairy-tail-535122 work for you?

Or, I do see a note that they're not able to show eps 13 to 48 right now on the availability notes, is that what you meant?

i like how you urge people to spend $60 and more to be able to watch a few episodes which were available before, or about $240 for the whole thing, while you yourself don't even spend money and watch it for free, through CR

of course, buying the DVD/BD is an option - the most expensive one
anyways, netflix and a funimation subscription seems the way to go for now.
maybe CR will sort this out and it'll become available again later.

Actually, i don't watch anything on CR. I disagree with what it stands for, because it is basically moving away from hard copies. Again, netflix is doing the same thing. That isn't helping the anime industry at all.

I buy the DVDs and only watch anime for free if it isn't yet available in my country. Even then, if it later comes out to my country, i buy it despite having already watching I'm in the UK and i think the dvds are affordable. Furthermore, you in the USA may have tons of choice of anime on netflix but we don't.

Well in the UK we get volumes of Fairy Tail with 12 episodes at a time, and they are reasonably priced.

Without knowing the specifics of cost, revenue and profit involved in the various parts of the Anime industry it's probably worth taking into account that although CR may not provide the biggest margins to anime producers, perhaps it's main goal is to make it more accessible. The more people that are hooked by streaming services and the wider the appeal they bring in terms of low-cost instant-access media the better it is for follow up purchases or merchandise and other shows that are not available.

Myself for example, I have bought Cowboy Bebop on Blu-Ray and Outlaw Star on DVD because I have enjoyed watching the shows on CR and wanted to re-watch the series mentioned which are not available here.

It's easy to criticise a business model without fully understanding how it is really working, if there was no need for this type of service then it is likely it wouldn't be so popular, at the very least if CR is able to funnel people into paying somehow (similar to Spotify for music streams) surely it is the better alternative than pirating someone's work in which EVERYONE loses in the long run.

That's my two cents anyway, feel free to agree/disagree as you see fit.

I don't know what Spotify is. And although it is good that you later bought the dvd's, in general streaming services like Crunchyroll are bad for the dvd industry because they encourage people to stream stuff rather than buy hard copies.
