I'm sad to see that God Eater isn't available in my region (Sweden). I'm sure these sort of things are out of Crunchyrolls control and lies in the copyright holders hands and such...

But don't send me an email about it that gets me all excited D:!

If you didn't already know about it, it should be available to you via Daisuki:

Apparently their regions for it were worldwide outside of China and Japan.

I'm with Nickqurious on this. Please don't send me emails about anime to watch when you aren't actually letting me watch it.

Reminds me of Tokyo Otaku Mode. Sends emails of interest, only to have the item 'region-restricted' once you check the page. Which is nuts, as if it's something I want, it's in most likelyhood up for order from places like cdjapan, amiami, etc. Well, their loss. Or, it would be, but they're too pricey so I almost never use them...

The same goes for anime. If it's not in one place...

Why don't you use one of those Chrome extensions that let you change your DNS location? It'll show you as being in the USA or wherever. You're a paying subscriber. Don't see why you shouldn't be allowed the full library you're paying for.

I really hope CR adjusts the price for different countries based on how much anime the users in that country actually have available... but given that they started off charging the same price for manga early on (when they only had a few titles) that they did later (once they had a real library), up until they decided to include it in the cost of an anime subscription, I don't know if I would bet on it.

Crunchyroll's prices for the subscription have not changed since the introduction of the paid plans, as far as I know. The customers in the US paid the same price back then as well for a much smaller catalog. Basically the subscription becomes cheaper for every region as their catalog grows, if you do the subscription price divided by available content calculation. Anyone in Europe using the Euro already pays slightly less for the subscription in first place, as Crunchyroll is not currently adjusting the subscription fee for exchange rate fluctuations.

I don't understand why you say that we are paying less in Europe, at least in Spain, we are paying 5€ (4.99 monthly) not in dollars, and considering the exchange rate we would be paying about 5,70$ monthly for the premium.

Also, in Spain we share the same communication channels that in South and Central America, so only 1 of 10 anime that they announced are available for us (and every season there are less), basically the catalog in Spain is growing each season less than the previous seasons.

The US price is $6.95 per month, so the Euro price is effectively slightly cheaper.

Sorry, I was comparing to the price in South and Central America, which has a more similar catalog to us, and it is 5$ month for premium, I don´t know about the premium+ since is of no use in Spain.
