I would have loved watching these series, but Latin America and Scandinavia didn't get anything new to watch. Honestly, I get that the licensing limitations are probably given by the studios, but I start to wonder if paying for a membership really is worth it when half of the series aren't even available in my country. I hope that there will at least be something for these countries in future unboxing.


Well, that's the thing, these aren't new shows, they are old shows that CR has picked up some time after they originally aired, and so they only could inherit the sub-licensed geography from the original licensee, such as Nozomi or Funimation, who, in most cases was only focused on the US at the time they first got it. CR isn't dealing with the original Japanese publishers here, they are getting them second-hand from other US-based companies.

Where you should see improvement is going forward with new future simulcasts which haven't come out yet. As those get acquired, CR and Funimation will now be trying harder to get more countries licensed, because it is all new dealings, and now they have a vested interest in doing so. Going forward should be easier, because the negotiations aren't done yet.

Oh, no I feel a bit stupid for complaining, but a big thank you for taking your time to answer. I think I understand better now the situation with the license and it does feel good knowing that improvements have been done and hopefully will continue to be made. I was going a bit too hard.
Well thank you again for taking your time telling me

The series like Tokyo ESP, Riddle Story of Devil, Lord Marksman and Vanadis, licensed CR for Europeans when it was released at the time, and we thinking ok, Funimation has it for Latin America and now another lie is discovered, I do not understand why CR did not buy it for Latin America when the series premiered at the time.

So, since we've now gotten the first series of both Index and Railgun here on Crunchyroll, is there a chance that we'll get the second series' of both on here as well? I don't want to be able to watch the first series of both on here and then have to resort to less savory means of being able to watch the rest of both of them.

What lie? You people are talking a lot of nonsense without knowing a darn thing about what it takes to get shows in certain regions. You all need to grow up.

Your complaints are unwarranted and directed at the wrong people. You want shows in your region then you need to talk to the companies Crunchy gets the shows from. Crunchy does not owe you or anyone else here whining like entitled kids a thing.

Oof, this second wave is ass.

I haven't seen Railgun(but now I can watch Raildex so that's fun), but Lord Marksman is just meh, ditto for Cat Planet Cuties, and Riddle Story of Devil and Tokyo ESP are just straight garbage shows.

What did we do to deserve these lumps of coal?
