Why bother putting an ad for an anime that isn't avalaible on the region im in? I was excited to watch Knights & Magic when I read the small blue ad on top, but oh no. Guess what? it isn't avaliable here. This is some false advertising, Crunchyroll please fix this because I dont think you should advertise something that the user can't watch.

Moved this over to site suggestions - you're right, I think they should change it so you won't see banners that can't apply to your current region. I don't know how much work that will be, but hopefully some changes will be made (and hopefully the show license will be obtained for your region as well)

These messages are visible for everyone using the site in English. They can only be language-filtered, not region-filtered.
If you used the site in Spanish, you'd not be seeing them.

That sounds a bit dumb to be honest... I use the english language because I use it more than spanish, specially on the internet. Just because someone uses a language out of habit shouldnt make the messages appear to be honest.

This problem also happens for Romania, and there is no option for Romanian language
