This is all that's available legally in India this season.

I have already posted this elsewhere, but I have real difficulty understanding why the situation is so bad. Why we don't have any AOT, Demon Slayer or Isekais. Crunchyroll, please give us something!!
Why do you have only 3 anime instead of 37 in the US when we don't have any real alternative? Why are you licensing titles for Worldwide except Asia when no Asian service is pickinhg them up apart from China, Japan and Korea. Why do you want us not watching our anime legally?

(This page is accurate, I had the mods at livechart.me correct the errors. Only Boruto and Pokemon are not mentioned)

Countries must give CR permission offer titles to their citizens. Since CR is a legal streaming service, it must comply with the whims of individual countries. Those three anime are what India allowed CR to stream on the server.

Well, just no. Countries rarely have problem with content unless they have stringent censorship. And it is definitely not the case here. It's the Anime licensors' definition of territories and licensing which has led to this mess.

Definition of Asia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia#Main_regions pay particular note to South Asia.... this is likeliest what CR are using.

Also licensing/streaming in Asia is a completely different kettle of fish compared to western countries, unless there is a massive change in the future, this is going to stay like this for many years to come.

CR doesn't define the territories, the licensors do.
And anime streaming sites often have to deal with additional requirements from the licensor such as having to physically release the anime they want to offer for streaming. That's usually done by another company. When there's no company to do so or only a few that don't license much or prefer working with another streaming service CR has a problem.
Don't blame the streaming sites, blame the licensors. They created most of this mess.
