So this is the irony of things. It seems that it is almost easier to stream anime outside of Japan than in it due to crazy licensing laws. When it comes to purchasing it Westerners get a much better deal.

That being said, I know that there is a Japanese equivalent to Crunchyroll called NikoNiko and apparently they do have some English sub content and I think they hold a lot of the rights for streaming. My recommendation would be to contact other ex-pats and see which streaming services they are using.

In terms of using CR other than for forums you basically can't do much from over there, sorry to break the bad news.

I've moved this to the Site Support / Minor Questions forum.

As far as I know, of show CR has only RWBY is available in Japan. CR doesn't have the license to make any of the other shows available there, so as long as you are in Japan (unless you are on a US military base that uses IP addresses associated as US addresses) you won't be able to watch shows on Crunchyroll.
