Right now several of this season’s anime are religiously broadcast daily like ‘Shenmue The Animation‘ or ‘Ranking of Kings’, and from Crunchyroll they promise that next spring many more new series will arrive. As part of this union of catalogs from Crunchyroll, Funimation and Wakanim, very powerful series of the moment like ‘My Hero Academia‘, ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ or ‘Tokyo Revengers’ will become complete in our country within this single platform.
In the official announcement, Crunchyroll is also committing to more dubs and new subtitles for these series.. Additionally, Funimation, Wakanim, and VRV users who switch to the platform will also receive 60 days of Crunchyroll Premium for free.
Sony took over Crunchyroll last August and since then the platform’s union with Funimation has been anticipated. The demand for anime content has doubled since the pandemic began and more and more streaming services are betting on Japanese animation titles to boost their catalog, but with this surprise announcement Crunchyroll has definitely set itself apart from its competitors in terms of amount of content.
“The Crunchyroll team has done an extraordinary job of not only growing the brand but also building a very passionate community of anime fans,” WarnerMedia CRO Tony Goncalves said in a statement on the platform’s sale to Sony. “Combined with Funimation, they will continue to take care of the global community and bring more anime to more people.”
It has not yet been confirmed how this catalog expansion will affect Crunchyroll rates and if there will be a fee increase or if it will remain as before.
