There's a rewatch for Sora no Woto going on over on reddit, so I thought I'd jump in on it. I've watched the show (Soranowoto here) on Crunchyroll twice before - the most recent can't have been much more than a year ago. But when I went to the page it says the series isn't available in my region (that is, New Zealand).

So my questions are, how long ago did this happen and were there any other shows affected? I usually keep track of Site News and I don't remember any announcements about region changes recently.

Thanks for any help!

Doing a quick search of Site News, I also didn't see anything about this one. Double checking the regions, NZ has indeed been left off the list, as well as everything outside of NA. I will forward this to support to see if they can get a solid answer.

is it normal for crunchyroll to take down shows without any warning or notice?

Pretty much. Sometimes they put up a warning other times well you don't know until you want to watch something and it's gone.

If there is no warning that they get told to take something down (like can happen in the licensing world) they don't even say sorry but yesterday we had to remove/change XYZ title/s either.

It isn't typical. Search the Site News section of the forum using the word "Marathon" and you'll find plenty of past notices of shows going away. There have, however, been some exceptions where apparently even CR itself didn't have much notice.

Typically, notice is posted before hand in the Site News section of the forum. However, it has happened in the past where CR has had to remove shows quickly without being able to post advanced notice.

At least CR often posts notices when show(s) are going away. Granted, they don't always manage it, and sometimes that notice is very short, but that is certainly better than Funimation, where I don't believe I've ever seen any forewarning. I was reminded of this due to a thread that popped up in their forum about the sudden removal of Darker Than Black and Air (TV).
