Ask Crunchy and licensors in your region, not random forum members...

Buy a US gift card for crunchyroll, watch via a USA VPN. Not give a damn about regional locks.

Pretty slim bud. CR does things at their own pace... regretfully. I am sure they do all they can as far as they can see... but that doesn't mean its good enough all the time. Like in your case... One piece should definitely have been made UK available along with the rest of the world... but licensing probably got in the way.

Time for you to get used to using a VPN or pirating friend. Use Kodi with something like Exodus to get your OP fix if you want something ... simple.

Considering how old the show is, you really think there is any chance they're gonna change their mind on episode 9999?
The UK got rid of One Piece long ago after the first few episodes aired because they found it was too violent.

Brits are too wimpy. They should be more like US and be strong.

Yeah I don't quite understand Japanese censorship especially when they have this: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/07/japan-penis-festival-kanamara-matsuri_n_5106378.html

As sundin13 indicates, this is not something that can be answered by the users and it's not really a General Discussion topic. Therefore, I've closed this.

Here's a link to the Help/FAQ about show availability:
https://help.crunchyroll.com/hc/en-us/articles/205137736-Why-don-t-you-have-specific-show-

It says


While we try to acquire streaming rights for every show, due to the vagaries of licensing restrictions we cannot promise that every single title released on Crunchyroll will be available in all countries. If a title has specific, additional licensing restrictions or details, they will be noted on that title's individual page. If new titles or regional availability are added, we will announce them on our front page.


I'm sure Crunchyroll is very aware that UK viewers would love to see One Piece, so it's very likely that someone else has the license there, even if they aren't actually using it for streaming.
