To unblock and watch Crunchyroll from anywhere, outside your location, you need to use a VPN.

Now, if you are going to use it for the first, time, a VPN is a virtual private network that allows you to hide your IP address and change your location. This will ‘fool’ the website into thinking you are elsewhere and so, you will get the content access that you want.

VPNs are used to bypass website blocks and firewalls but can be used for unlocking region-bound content as well. There are more advantages to using VPNs, other than the ones mentioned here, like anonymity (more on this below).
