So, i just got a 3 month card for this website, and i thought "how cool, i've always wanted to test it out". It is a good site, believe me, but what ruins it for me is not having all the releases, i mean, i've been watching danmachi, assassination classroom and oregairu, and this website says it's not licensed? are you serious? Not gonna spend a single penny here if it's always like this every season.

Danmachi and SNAFU are here, maybe not for your country.

As it has been noted there are 2 factors in play. 1) YOUR location. 2) Countries cd has the rights to stream the show.

Like how FUNimation animes can't be put on here. I honestly don't see why. I miss watching Black Lagoon and Dance in the Vampires Bund. I found better animes though that made me just not really care for unavailable anime. heh...

Hi and Welcome!

I've moved this over to the Suggestions/Feedback forum.

CR does try to get a license for every new anime show every season, and for the US and Canada they do get a very large proportion of the new shows that are available.

Their offerings for other countries has been improving (in fact they now regularly license shows for other countries even when they can't get the license for the US and Canada), but it does still lag significantly behind in numbers, and it still varies a lot even between non-US/Canada countries.

If you are not in the US or Canada, that's why you are seeing noticeably fewer shows than you might find available on less legitimate sites. If you are watching shows on another site that does license them, then the fact that they have the license is probably exactly why CR doesn't have it. Sometimes licenses are shared and not exclusive to one streaming site, but it's less common.

If you are in the US or Canada, then you would be able to watch most of the new shows that are not on Crunchy on Funimation, which has a very reasonably priced sub-only subscription for those who want to watch the simulcasts right when they come out, and without ads. I know several users who enjoy both a Crunchyroll subscription and a Funimation subscription (I'm one of them).

Hmm i see. thanks for the replies guys. i'll definetly keep checking on crunchy roll for the anime it does have available, that said, i don't find it super reliable as of now , since i like to watch atleast 1 episode of all the anime that comes out a certain season, to know if i'll drop it or not. Thanks once again, and i hope CR keeps improving
