Any vision for uncensored anime?

Does anyone know if Crunchyroll has plans on de-censoring the anime it has, or separating that anime into another portal or area with restrictions? I don't mean showing anything crazy or x-rated, but most (if not all) of the anime that is censored here doesn't really need to be censored. Is it a licensing agreement, or something else that drives Crunchyroll to censor their anime?

I honestly don't think Cr has the power to do that.

I've closed this because we have a couple of existing threads on the subject.

The key points that have come up whenever a new topic is started or the question is asked are that generally the uncensored versions aren't available for CR to license as simulcasts or that doing so would be prohibitively expensive. CR tends to get the regular broadcast version of a show--they aren't the ones who add the censoring. Legal uncensored versions are generally only available in Japan through a subscription service, or on home release physical media--that's how the creators make money. When CR adds older titles, they often get the uncensored home release version.

There have been a few cases where CR got both censored and uncensored versions as simulcast, but it's uncommon.

Here are links to two existing threads:
