As previously reported; over 70 titles that had been licensed by Sentai Filmworks were removed from Crunchyroll recently in anticipation of this move. However Granbelm was not among them.
The Blu-ray Disc release of Granbelm will release on November 11th. Granbelm is currently available to watch on Crunchyroll in English with Japanese subtitles.
