"Due to licensing restrictions etc. etc...."

This a annoying, I understand that licensing may differ but I'll bet the US doesn't have these problems (example - Familiar of Zero I watched online from various [possible naughty] sites BEFORE I got a Crunchy Roll account. But I couldn't have watched it on CR anyway!

Does seem a shame - I guess I'll keep trawling the web every now and again.

PS (Just decided to watch 'Erased' - this is darned brilliant!)

Problem is sometimes others have bought exclusive rights in the UK.

maybe because another company bought the rights or maybe certain anime are banned from the UK
yes, underage animated you-know-what is illegal in UK, but i seriously doubt the UK government can even tell you-know-what from series like monster musume and No Game No Life. they are probably lumped in the same category.

I've closed the thread because it's not really so much a discussion as a personal vent.

To avoid the frustration of searching and finding only to be met with "due to licensing restrictions" you might find it more satisfying to browse through a list of only what's available in your region. You can do that here:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/videos/anime/alpha?group=all

That view gets automatically filtered for whatever region you're detected in.
