As the title says this is about VPN. I've been looking through the forum to see if I can find anywhere it says is it illegal or not to use it. I don't need a long explanation because I have dyslexia. If I use the VPN would I get in trouble or my account and get a fine?

And thanks for your help and I hope this helps other people's as well.

VPN's are legal. Bypassing region restrictions to watch shows that are already licensed in that particular region is not legal and akin to watching anime on any other pirate site.

Also, using a VPN is against Crunchyroll's user agreement.

this was already answered in a previous thread, but as above said,
VPNs are legal, unless you're in places like China, where only government-approved VPNs are legal.
even if it's legal where you live, using one to bypass regional restrictions would be a violation of terms of service, and CR can legally terminate your account.

It does not have legal repercussions for the user anymore than pirating is. It is against the agreements you agreed to when you signed up for Crunchyroll, as they are most likely to obliged by said rules to license anime in any particular region or some other.

It is technically ban worthy, as any violations are, but I doubt anyone would find out or care, really.
