Crunchyroll Moves All Funimation Content Under One Banner

The popular anime streaming service Crunchyroll recently launched on the Nintendo Switch, and first impressions are positive. Now the service has become much bigger with the takeover of Funimation and most content associated with it. The change is effective immediately and affects Funimation, its subsidiary Wakanim, and Crunchyroll’s own VRV service. The company says this will create the world’s largest anime library under one roof. However, as a small caveat, the site’s FAQ section says that 80% of Funimation’s library will be moved, so there may be a few movies or shows that haven’t made the jump yet.

What does this mean for current Funimation subscribers? Simply put, it might be time to switch to Crunchyroll, as the former will only receive new episodes of ongoing series. The good news is that Crunchyroll is offering a special offer of 60 days of free Crunchyroll Premium for anyone who recently subscribed to Funimation, Wakanim, or VRV. Qualified customers will be sent an email with an offer shortly.
