Licensing. They can't obtain the license to steam everything, especially when Licensing companies like Sentai obtain the license and then make exclusive deals with other streaming services.

It's the same reason Netflix doesn't really have a ton of major movies in the streaming service.

What is your region? and shows you are after?

In short it can be

1. A rival streaming streaming in your region
2. Money
3. Publisher saying no.

Thanks, averyone, for your answers.
@Savagely69 I'm not going to pay Anime Strike it is absolutely expensive in comparison to CR. I will continue with CR and if I have to watch in other pages for free that Anime that is not in CR, I will do it.

Try AnimeLab. I know they've got Tokyo Ghoul.

So, for Tokyo Ghoul that puts it in the "a rival streaming in your region" category for why CR doesn't have it for you.

I've no idea about the others though.

You mean the classic Berserk series or the recent one? The recent one is on Crunchyroll. I don't think the classic one is available for streaming on any legitimate website at all.

Animelab.com has the 1997 and 2016 Beserk and Tokyo Ghoul S1/S2. Pretty much covers the rival streaming site.

Netflix should have Fate/Apocrypha on it with in a week or so. If i remember correctly from another person asking about it the first or second week of November was the start date.

I did have a feeling you lived in Australia As I saw the QLD in your username and was like I wonder if they live here? Which means no Animestrike for you anyway as that is US only.

primevideo.com or Hidive.com has shows found on Animestrike. You can sub to like both for the price of just Animestrike lol.

Animelab for example is only allowed in Australia and New Zealand. As it's owned and run by the Australian distributor Madman Entertainment. Local Distributors generally can overrule CR over streaming rights. So if it isn't on here then in your case it would be one of the Australian distributors have said nope. The top choice shows will generally be found on Animelab.

Hanabee entertainment seemed to have teamed up with Netflix and Animelab for their shows. (some still found on here though)
Siren visual has one or two of it's shows on Animelab
Sony Universal has one or two on Animelab. Also they are ones that went nope to CR (which i think it's strange as that they said yes to animelab)

With that many separate distributors CR wont be a single shop for Anime streaming in Australia anytime soon.
