Crunchyroll and Funimation Part Ways

Crunchyroll and Funimation, two of the biggest anime distributors, are now ending their collaboration that started back in September 2016. The reason for it? Sony Picture Television Network wants Funimation to spread its wings and become more global.

Outside of the fact that they will stop sharing content after November 9th, but Funimation will also not be available after that expiration date.

If you are worried about losing shows like Attack on Titan and My Hero Academia on your Crunchyroll account, I’m happy to say that you don’t have to worry. According to reports, shows that premiered during the partnership are staying around even after November 9th.

Animenewsnetwork has an update from Funimation, where they state that their new sub/dub offering will start as soon as winter 2019. You will be able to watch several shows with subtitles, but will not change the tier when it comes to subtitle subscriptions. They also added that they hope to offer their service in languages outside of English as soon as possible.
