    I am looking for an anime streaming service where I could potentially watch old and new anime and Crunchyroll comes to mind. I've been looking at their catalog and it's surprisingly dogshit. Like I'm constantly seeing anime released from over a decade ago lol.
    Maybe I didn't explore their app enough any users here? How is it? Would you recommend it?

    Hajiko is correct, anime is licensed by territory.

    For example you are in Asia, the category might be slim/older since a lot of production committees sell those rights elsewhere. Really common to see the international rights being bundled as “world ex-Asia” these days

    Tbh even though crunchyroll has rights of most anime, i'd rather watch elsewhere.
    Not that im telling you to pirate or anything. There are other legit sites.

    if you have specific titles in mind, then you should check if they have it first, if any title does, search the cheaper service available to your country.

    No, my sibling has it and not all the series are dubbed or subbed. One season will only be available in dubbed then the second only subbed. It was weird, getting used to the different voices. Also even with a VPN the selection wasn't what I expected. I wouldn't say it was worth it.

    Oh that's a turn off especially when I only watch Subbed episodes. Thanks for the information.

    Some are available on YouTube.
    Sadly, the cost is prohibitive. You need to be on multiple platforms.

    I use to buy movies on Amazon years ago until the service was discontinued and they told me the movies I bought were actually a form of rental. That pissed me off.

    I don't buy digital content for that reason unless there is no DRM
