This has been out for some time but I just wanted to make a trend and see what other people's opinions have in mind. I was thinking of buying a premium account on Crunchyroll because I want a good quality experience while watching the shows, also in a way to do it in a legal matter... anyway.
I live in Iceland and basically... heh... it's kinda difficult to find a anime that is "Available in my region", let's give some sad thoughts that I can NOT watch, I can't watch FMA, Cowboy bebop, Toradora, Steins-gate, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Samurai champloo... and I can go all day, the only decent anime that I can watch is Kill La Kill the rest are just some endless Ecchi shows which is not the type of a genre I like. So what do you guys think?

It's pretty sad to go and pay for a premium when you are not allowed to watch shows that you want to watch.

This isn't exactly the correct section to rant about it and thats just how it is. CR doesn't have the licenses for those animes in that region.

Normally I'd just move this over to Site Support or something - after all, it's a valid point, license restrictions do mean that not everyone gets every anime!

.. it's also not CR's decision on that, and your title alone is enough for me to close this. I'm sorry you don't get all the anime you'd want here. Since CR went legal, they have to abide by the restrictions set by the anime publishers, who pay the anime creators, and get money from folks like CR.. it's a big circle. Some of those shows aren't even licensed by CR, so...

The better way, since you're a premium member, is to go to the premium group and request the anime you want. That will encourage the licensing group to fight for the anime in your region. /group/CR_Premium_Members/forum#s=/group/CR_Premium_Members/forum%3Fextra_param%3D588949%26page%3D0
