Anime distributor, Funimation, has announced that they will be moving their current content catalog over to fellow distributor, Crunchyroll. Further, future anime streaming will only be present under Crunchyroll’s service starting Spring 2022. Now, however, Crunchyroll subscribers have gained access to Funimation’s entire catalog. This gargantuan alteration also includes Funimation subsidiary Wakanim and Crunchyroll’s VRV. So, essentially, fans will have access to much more content under one paid service rather than multiple.
To aid in this transition, current subscribers of the Funimation, VRV, and Wakanim will be receiving emails by March 8, 2022, containing vouchers for 60 free days of Crunchyroll Premium. Though, it is worth noting that this offer is only applicable if one doesn’t possess a Crunchyroll subscription.
Moreover, Funimation has launched an FAQ on their site to answer users’ most pressing inquiries. Features like Funimation watch history and Funimation Queue are being worked on for future implementation.
If you have any questions of your own, Funimation’s latest extensive FAQ page should cover any specifics. Also, check out Funimation’s latest blog post detailing this transition to Crunchyroll’s service.
