Forums - Movies & TV - Funimation Content Moving to Crunchyroll for World’s Largest Anime Library

Huge news: Anime just powered up! Funimation, which serves millions of anime fans in over 52 countries and 10 languages, will be unifying under the Crunchyroll brand. This move will include Funimation’s subsidiary, Wakanim, as well as Crunchyroll’s VRV to create one subscription service for our anime fans worldwide.

What does this mean? 

This means all your anime, all on one platform. Starting today, tons of shows and movies from Funimation and Wakanim will begin arriving on Crunchyroll—so you’ll get more dubs, more subs, more everything. That includes titles available now like My Hero Academia, Tokyo Ghoul and Yu Yu Hakusho alongside favorites like Cowboy Bebop and Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, all under one subscription! Check out the list of new arrivals on Crunchyroll, with much more to come!

This also means new series in the upcoming Spring season (the biggest on record—stay tuned!) and beyond will only stream on Crunchyroll. Moving forward, Funimation will only add new episodes of continuing series, which means Funimation users will want to move to a Crunchyroll account as soon as possible. 

That’s why now, as a welcome to the new Crunchyroll family, Funimation, Wakanim, and VRV subscribers get a special deal for 60 days of Crunchyroll Premium free! Over the next few days, qualified Funimation, Wakanim, and VRV subscribers will receive an email with their unique link to redeem.

I guess this was always going to happen. It's a shame because Funimation's platform is a mess, and doesn't usually videos don't work for me.

I imagine that the "free with commercials" viewing options are going to go away shortly too.



Cool, now one less sub I need.



This is excellent news for me. I watch anime every day. So not having to fork out more money for more subscriptions is always a plus. I figured this was gonna happen as soon as Sony acquired Crunchyroll. It wouldn't make sense to have both existing when Crunchyroll would be the better option between the two. This is good news.

Sounds like a great deal. Personally, I won't be paying for it until they stop censoring the lewd animes but for those that do pay for it, it should be fap worthy.

This is good for my bf in that he gets a lot more for just one subscription but the Funimation app works better for him than the Crunchyroll one on Xbox so ideally the issues he's had with the latter get resolved. Overall this is good since subscription service bloat is annoying.



Great news, i dont even think funimation works in all europe?



 

And they will still not improve the app.

I think Funimation is a better brand name than Crunchyroll, which makes me think of sushi. I'm not the target audience for this though so...

There may not be anything they can do about that. Blame Japanese censorship policies (and the people that buy massively overpriced DVD releases with less censorship which encourages publishers to censor all other versions to keep that cash cow going).
