So, I mean, Crunchyroll has a TON of anime on here, but there are some I look for and can't find, like, most of the older Gundams, not on the site, or, I just learned from another anime site I use, that Digimon Universe exists and I was completely oblivious up till now.

I am uncertain as to why the biggest anime site doesn't have more shows. Am I missing something, is it a...marketing thing, licensing issue?

They just don't think the shows would get enough views and be popular enough?

Licensing and cost mostly.

There are many shows that have already been licensed and the owners don't want to work with Crunchyroll (CR) on distribution or they want exclusive rights because they're competitors. It's also a money thing. Probably costs a ton to keep all these shows licensed.

Also if you are looking for a certain show that isn't here you can look it up here http://because.moe/ It is a legal anime streaming search engine basically.
