I have a 55' 4K Sony Bravia TV, and I currently see no Crunchyroll app for it. Furthermore, I know Crunchyroll app exists for Samsung TVs back in 2012. Three years later, and I am wondering why Crunchyroll app does not exist for Sony TV.

Apps are pretty much giving up on SmartTV's.
Tablets and phones can update, but most companies simply don't bother, and either leave the outdated app up, or just discontinue it.

Had a nice CR app for my Panasonic Viera, but it seems like every other app (like YouTube) is either jumping ship or stuck in '10 when I bought the thing.
The only apps that show up nowadays, if at all, are the foreign Indian, Chinese and German ones, where, I guess, SmartTVs are still considered innovative.

Interesting, that makes a lot of sense. I noticed a lot of foreign apps as well. I guess I will continue streaming Crunchyroll via PS4.

Note: if you have a 2015 or later Sony smart TV that implements Android TV then you can use the regular Crunchyroll Android app with some minor inconveniences. Earlier Sony TVs that used a proprietary OS are unlikely ever to be supported.
