Why do you bother licencing an anime and only have season 2 so I can't watch the first season. I'm obviously not going to watch it if I have missed a few hundred episodes. I was wanting to watch fairy tail, only to find that there are some 100 odd episodes of season 2 and nothing for season 1. So I have to pirate the first season to make use of my paid service? I mean come on. And it's not the first time either, same thing with SOA.

Piracy +1 - quality service with everything for free.
Paid service -100 - poor service with lacking content.

You pay for things because you want to be on the level and support the industry ... but no... and I get it's not really crunchyroll's fault, it's a business, and the licenses cost money. But it's still damn annoying, when it seems I'm paying to watch stuff that a free account would also get to watch. Rant over.

If you're using the app if you click where it says fairy tail 2 it'll show you more options

Season 1 isn't available for some regions. I can't watch it either because I live in the U.K.

Yeah, New Zealand gets season 2 but no season 1. I just don't see the point. You need the back story.

I've moved this over to the Site Support / Minor Questions forum.

Crunchy always tries to get world rights when they can, but there are sometimes cases where they aren't able to--as when someone else has acquired the rights.

In the case of not having been able to acquire as wide rights with a first season, but being able to improve on that when negotiating for a season 2, the point is that many people will have already seen the first season through some other means, and will appreciate being able to watch a later season on CR.

Here are the relevant answers from the FAQ:

Part of it is due to madman entertainment. Season 1 of SAO was on here for australia and New Zealand but they requested the removal in an encouragement to get people to use their streaming service animelab.com which also has all of fairy tail season 1 and 2. Btw if you are after the popular shows then check them out as that is likely where they are.

Ah well fair enough, really get's frustrating having so many different services that keep adding up. But guess I'll have to check out animelab then.
