Funimation & Crunchyroll Merger Complete: Content Now On Crunchyroll- When You Should Cancel Your Funimation Account

The Funimation And Crunchyroll merger is complete. But how did we get here? Well, the Anime streaming wars began to heat up with Netflix stepping up their game with originals like Beastars and gaining rights for projects like Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway. However, Sony’s Funimation service pulled a Microsoft (buying Activision Blizzard) before Microsoft pulled their own Microsoft, by purchasing Crunchyroll. Much internet rage ensued.

After all the anger, joy, and confusion has subsided though, we’re now getting the final form of the Sony Anime Boss Monster. That’s right, there is Funimation stuff on Crunchyroll right now, but you may want to wait a little bit longer before canceling your Funimation subscription.

Why Wait?

The official press release given to LRM and others states that:

“As of today, 40,000+ sub and dub episodes are available on Crunchyroll for fans to enjoy, with more hitting the service daily over the next few weeks ahead. All new series from the upcoming Spring season – the biggest on record to be announced soon – will stream only on Crunchyroll; Funimation will continue to add new episodes of current series.”

Also, an updated Funimation FAQ on Crunchyroll gives an estimate of 80% of Funimation’s content being on Crunchyroll as of today. They also say that while new Spring 2022 episodes will be coming exclusively to Crunchyroll, any current seasons on Funimation will still be updated there. So there may be some lag between some old series’ move to the merged service, but not much.

Basically, if you have both, you can take a look at anything you MUST have available, like a comfort classic, and its availability and choose to wait or cancel now. If you only have Funimation, and nothing you couldn’t live without for a month or two, cancel that crap and head over to Crunchyroll for a new account.

What’s The Deal Here? Talk Money!

You can become a subscriber for as low as $7.99 USD a month or pay a whopping $14.99 USD a month to get an annual “swag bag” and some limited figure… Wait… why a limited figure for that tier? You know what, never mind. The best deal seems to be the mid-tier “Mega Fan” subscription for $9.99 USD which includes more simultaneous streaming devices, offline viewing, and store discounts. All in all, it’s a pretty sweet deal for weebs and casual noobs alike.
