I just got a crunchyroll account and I've been loving it. And I just started Arata the Legend series, but I logged on and it wasn't in my queue and it wasn't in my history anymore. I had to google quite a bit to remember the name, honestly. I searched it by name and it's still popping up on the site, but with no episodes loaded. So here's my question: WHAT HAPPENED? Is it coming back? Is this normal on crunchyroll?

Appears to be victim to another unannounced license expiration... That does happen from time to time. They may not be allowed to give the details, or they just weren't warned in time. It may be that someone else acquired the license, or the minimum just ran out and it wasn't getting enough views to renew it. That's all speculation though. Sometimes there are site news articles, when they find out a week or two before expiration, that say "Marathon Time", other times, like this, apparently nothing gets announced.

Now I'm going to have to go compare my show list again to see if there were any others being dropped at the same time...

If it's any consolation, they add far more new shows each quarter than they take down. I wonder how long that will continue to be viable...

As I recall, Arata had a bit of promise the early few episodes, but I started losing interest by about the 5th or 6th, and it seemed to have ended abruptly at episode 10 with no real resolution to anything that was going on, so if you were looking for story completion, there really wasn't any...
