I don't Really know where to post this stuff.. so i'ma just put it here.. sorry for the inconvenience or what not..

My question goes something like this... well. this is my question.. there are a lot of anime's that are a favorite of a whole lot of people.. namely?
Samurai X
Ghost Fighter
Flame of Recca
Sailor Moon
and a bunch of more...

I wonder, how come they're not here in this site? Crunchyroll is suppose to have atleast most of it? right? i know there's legality issues or copyright stuff.. crunchyroll has been existing for what? almost a decade? 5 years if not? i know a lot of people would be asking a lot of anime's that aren't here.. but those were the classic.. Those are Good anime's..

I hope somehow you guys can bring it back..

I don't really know why there is such a limit on these. I do know that not all of the animes that CR offers will be available in every country. Still, I'm sure a lot of these aren't offered at all. If you really want an official answer I would suggest e-mailing CR and asking. BasouKazuma is really good about responding with real answers (not cut and paste crap) and doing so quickly.

Crunchyroll has been gaining the online streaming rights to shows since mid 2008 but early 2009 is when we made our first big break. So we've only been at it for 2 years.

Though, even if we'd been around for 10 years, many of the popular shows are already licensed by many companies from different regions. So we would have to pursue gaining the rights from these companies and they have to agree to put the shows here. So we do try to get older classics but it's usually hard to do because of all the red tape involved. As our company becomes more lucrative, the easier it will be to gain streaming rights for the more popular classics since money talks.
