It's kinda funny when anime companies etc cries about piracy. When creators themselfs doesn't even let some countries watch anime at all.
Why region block big portion of the world when there might be potential customer?
Why these licensing deals are so complicate?

Seriously, CR has a lack of content? Maybe in other countries do to licensing, but not in the US. Out of the legal sites they probably have more titles than any one else or close to it. Legal sites need to be supported so they can afford and continue to offer more anime titles.

People need to stop going to the illegal ones, period. More and more countries are cracking down on them, it'd probably be in the best interest of anime fans to stop going to them to view anime. But the choice is theirs to make. I'm not harping on them, it use to be the only way to view streaming anime. A lot of anime was only available to watch through illegal sites, but simply isn't true any more. CR is doing a fantastic job.

Does anyone know how to suggest Anime for them to add? I, for one, have an anime I'd like to see, that isn't here. Maybe if they left room for feedback, they could have more to add.

Weird as this sounds, one day I decided I wanted to watch an anime on Crunchyroll and completed a search for it. They didn't have it, but one week later they did. So I'm pretty sure CR tracks what shows member search for, and try to get the ones most often searched. That's one place to make suggestions 'cause a database probably stores the statistics. It's an easy way to find out what most of your subscribers want to watch.

Here is what i have to say. I dont like CR that much. I hate shady business tactics. One thing i have always known is that u have 2 options. Pay for a subscription, or deal with adds. Thats a choice a lot of streaming sites give, And it works. Because no matter what, they are getting paid. THATS WHAT ADS ARE FOR. But not only do they do that. But they try to strong arm you into paying for a membership anyway. Even though they are getting add money from your views. They will let you watch MOST of an anime for free at SD quality WITH commercials that repeat 3 times in a row every 5-10min. But oh? You have to be a premium member if you want to watch the last 2-3 episodes. LMAO are you serious right now? U are getting add money but you do this. WELP i guess ill go look it up online. Maybe watch it on animeseason or something. Because for a bit i WAS pondering going premium to remove adds. But not now. Not after that stunt. FUCK YOURSELF CRUNCHY. You are not in it for any other reason other than greed

I feel sorry for you, because apparently you live under a rock and believe everyone is after money. The money CR charges I can't possibly fathom in my wildest dreams as being greedy since it is in reality so little.

Most likely licensing problems lay with the country's laws, not with the originating country. I'm sure if CR could they'd provide more titles to their Finland customers.

The content drops down in other countries ... but for most countries outside of Asia, it's still the biggest supply of legit anime available that supports the people that create the anime.

That is, Crunchyroll in most of Sub-Saharan Africa has less than 25% of the anime that Crunchyroll in the US has ... but unlike the US with anime on Hulu, Viewster, Crackle, etc., there are very little sites with licensed content that stream to Sub-Saharan Africa.

Since Crunchyroll always asks for as many countries as they can get, they have started getting a number of "Worldwide Outside Asia" licenses every season, which dramatically increased the amount of content they could make available in Sub-Saharan Africa.

And everyone around the world ... even here in Beijing ... has the royalty payments generated by their subscriptions going to the stuff they watch, so watching the stuff that is available to you directly rewards those Japanese licensors who chose to include your country in the license they offer to Crunchyroll. (Well, here in Beijing, it mostly rewards manga publishers that license eManga to Crunchyroll.)

Outside of Asia (where Crunchyroll gets very, very little), and a few countries such as France with competition from regional anime licensors, all of the sites that have more are rip-off sites that trample on the rights of the creator to say who gets to stream their stuff ... and increasingly they steal their subs from Crunchyroll or from disk distributors.

Yeah! Let's throw all the anime onto crunchyroll! Because there definitely aren't any legal and monetary issues to deal with!

Have you watched anime anywhere else? Most Funimation series give you 4 eps before forcing you to subscribe. Ad money is not but it's not consistent. Subs are what they depend on, not ads. And let's not forget the numerous people who use ad blockers which in turn stop sites from earning ad revenue. So let's calm down a little there. Sites gotta make money to stay up and get more shows. besides its like 10 bucks a month at most, not a lot to pay for hundreds of anime.

I wonder what studio has said that. If Finland isn't a country, what is it?

It's true what you said, japanese people like Finland a lot. Moomin is a good example. There's gonna be a theme park in Japan.

I don't know why i picked that as an example, i guess i couldn't think anything else, heh.

Well, they are in bed with Funi now and they already get Aniplex's stuff *shrugs*

Monopolies are rarely good for the pocketbook, and besides, there is the partnership with Funi with that as the authoritative go-to place for most dubs now.

This is the reason I cancelled my subscription this year after 4 or 5 years of premium. I'm also gonna wait for my funimation sub to lapse and be done with it. I'll just watch my shit illegally anyways. Like the good old days.
