Accept it, really. That's one of the the few things you can do. Or find another legal streaming site that has it. If it's available on Blu-ray/DVD in your region, you could always buy it.

There are plenty of shows not available in my region as well, but I've come to terms with it. The shows usually gets licensed and released on home video eventually, so i get to watch most of the shows i want to watch eventually.

Lobby for anime import without additional fee. Like all Capitalists, you can argue that free trade promote economic investment, create competition, and result in win-win situations (although the Capitalists may ironically be responsible for the economic sanction). You should also demand why anime is locked in your region; the reasons may be something like maintaining tradition by restricting cultural diversity or protecting local animation companies.

This is actually why I dropped my CR subscription and went back to watching for free (with the addition of ad blocking). I was happy to pay for it while I was getting enough shows to watch that I liked, but once they stopped bringing a lot of the stuff I wanted to watch to Australia, I just stopped paying. If it changes, I'll be glad to go back to premium.

See if someone in your region has licensed it, if not you're stuck either importing DVDs or venturing off into the unknown to find what you are looking for...

You can stream anime on www.animelab.com
It's a legal streaming site which also has a premium membership if you choose to much like Crunchyroll. They have many anime for us Australians to watch that may be region locked on Crunchyroll. They also have an app available for iOS, Android and PlayStation etc.
