From my general knowledge, I always got the impression that Crunchyroll under focused on new series, so seeing some older series been added to the service is a surprise! Most of them aren't available over here is the frustrating part of this. :(

The latest batch was added thanks to Discotek Media. Given that Discotek has new titles to announce this weekend, I suspect Crunchyroll has leaked Honey and Clover and The Legend of Black Heaven among their upcoming announcements.

Some of the DVD only titles I have listed were initially rescued by Funimation from the ADV Films era, so it's possible that the licenses for those may have expired (or have done already). Air TV series for instance also has a Blu-ray version, but the license is confirmed to have expired a couple of years back.
