Literally all new series unavailable for my country, makes me wonder if gettign premium was the right choice


These were Funimaton titles dude, CR didn't have any say in what countries were licensed for them.


Yeah i know but it still pains me to know that i cant watch overlord, death parade and chrono crusade via crunchyroll.

Still dont know why funimation doesnt expand, they almost have the monopoly on the larger hit series.



For the vast majority of their existence they've only cared for NA market. In last year or so they've expanded to UK and Ireland but it's not been pretty with mediocre mobile app and still to get apps for say consoles etc alot of people watch anime with. The issue now esp after CR deal is less why they won't expand (they're even LESS interested in non English countries now with dub focus) and more WHO has the licenses for everywhere else. Maybe they're loose for CR to pick up? Yet then it's a case of its it worth the expense to CR to invest in catalogues Vs getting as many simulcasts worldwide as they can esp with likes of Amazons deep pockets getting involved in anime now too.

Let's look at that question.

Funimation's simuldubs for this season are: Attack on Titan, Dragonball Super, My Hero Academia Season 2, Monster Hunter Stories Ride On, One Piece, Sakura Quest, Akashic Records of Bastard Magical Instructor, Clockwork Planet, The Silver Guardian, Alice & Zoroku, Seven Mortal Sins, WorldEnd: What are you doing at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?, Love Tyrant, Brave Witches, Kenka Bancho Otome -Girl Beats Boys-, The Royal Tutor, KADO: The Right Answer, Tsukigakirei, and Tsugumomo.

One Piece, and Dragon Ball certainly are on contracts from before the deal, and Brave Witches and Monster Hunter Stories seems to be as well, so to see the countries they are picking up currently, we can look at the ones that are cross-distributed on Crunchyroll, since Crunchyroll always streams to every country they get the rights for:

North America, UK/Eire, Oz/NZ: Clockwork Planet
North America, UK/Eire, Oz/NZ, ZA, Norse ex Finland: My Hero Academia Season 2, Sakura Quest
North America, UK/Eire, Oz/NZ, ZA, Norse & the Netherlands, Latin America: Attack on Titan
North America, UK/Eire, Oz/NZ, ZA, Europe, Latin America & North Africa: Tsugumomo
Worldwide Ex Asia: Akashic Records of Bastard Magical Instructor, The Silver Guardian, Alice & Zoroku, Seven Mortal Sins, WorldEnd: What are you doing at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?, Love Tyrant, Kenka Bancho Otome -Girl Beats Boys-, The Royal Tutor, KADO: The Right Answer, and Tsukigakirei

Looking at that, Funimation are quite clearly tending to license much more broadly than before. All but 3 are broader regions than they seem to have every licensed before, and of those three, My Hero Academia Season 2 is a sequel.

You did not say, "I cannot see any of the series I want to see on Crunchyroll, so I am dropping my subscription." Obviously, if you cannot see any of the series you want to see on Crunchyroll, why subscribe? I subscribed to Crunchyroll from 2009 to last month, but given the anime available in China, I let my subscription expire. Going ahead, I'm only going to subscribe for the summer vacation period when I am in the US.

Your demand was in response to no new licenses, and no change in existing series available to you, but some companies that never held rights to distribute series to your country adding Crunchyroll to the sites where they stream these series, under existing contracts.

And in response, you seem to be demanding that unless Crunchyroll jumps into a time machine and persuades people signing contracts two, five or more years ago to include your country in the contracts signed two, five or more years ago, you are going to stop watching whatever it is you are currently watching on Crunchyroll and "take your business elsewhere" ... which essentially means watching bootleg rips ... whether or not Crunchyroll has been able to get simulcasts for your country.

First make sure your default sub language is "English - US" and mature content is set to be allowed here: /acct/?action=video

If that doesn't work, try clearing your cookies (and logging back in after).

If that doesn't work, go to the /contact page, then scroll down to see what country is actually being detected (gray text almost at the bottom). Sometimes ISPs get a block of new addresses which do not resolve correctly.

One way would be to reach out to them on Twitter:
https://twitter.com/FUNimation

You could also try the contact form on their website, although that is technically for customers:
https://www.funimation.com/contact-us/
