I really really love Nodame Cantabile, and I first watched it on [PIRATE SITE REMOVED BY MOD]. But I got used to the ad free good quality videos of crunchyroll, so now I seldom venture to other sites to watch anime. Why isn't this anime, along with many other amazing animes (kaichou wa maid-sama, special a, clannad, etc.) on Crunchyroll?

For one, Nodame Cantabile is on Amazon's Anime Strike service, so it is somewhere. But what you need to consider is that CR can't afford to stream every title out there, and that if a show is licensed by somebody else, it is up to them to decide where it goes. Sentai has those other shows you have listed, but they have decided not to give them to CR for streaming, and this past season they got an offer by Amazon that's too good to refuse. So basically, these are all business decisions.

The anime for Nodame may not be here, but the live action version is and it's actually pretty good. I'd recommend checking it out if you haven't yet.

What. For real?

I thought the series was in licensing hell.

Figures it would turn up on the most overpriced service of all.

EDIT: Looked it up and it's only the first season, which was available for free on Crackle for quite some time. Seems like the other seasons are still stuck in licensing hell. =(
