They aren't banned, CR simply doesn't have the license to them for that area of the world.

That being said I see a LOT!!! of series that have that restriction though, Mainly for the first season but not the second or third seasons, And I don't mean just a handful of titles either seems like most of the titles are either boring, short 5 minute wonders, missing a season, or just not available in this country of mine.

I know that I get what I pay for, but there really should be more at this point, especially if they're older anime titles from yesteryear.

Older anime are more likely to be license restricted because they've been around long enough for someone else to have already licensed.

Also, from what was stated by someone in another topic, a lot of the Funimation titles are still showing up as region restricted, despite the fact that they are actually no longer here (i.e., someone outside the countries they were licensed in sees no videos + the region restricted message, while someone in where they were licensed, such as the US, simply sees no videos). If you want to test this, tell me what you see on this page:

If you pop over to your own local streaming service, AnimeLab, you'll no doubt see a lot of titles that aren't available to you on CR.

The videos there have all been removed due to the Crunchyroll and Funimation partnership ending.

I know that much. What I was asking is if it displays the "Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region" in the usual place on the right side.

Keep in mind that any series that has only a single season will also display no videos to anyone outside the region where it is available (and a multi-season series will have only the expandable banner that won't expand).
