Funimation’s Anime Catalog is Moving to Crunchyroll

It was announced today by Crunchyroll that Funimation’s anime content will be coming to Crunchyroll, thus, merging the two services into one. When Sony acquired Crunchyroll after previously acquiring Funimation, many fans were left wondering what would happen to both services.

Starting today, new and existing users of Crunchyroll will have access to both library and simulcast content previously found on Funimation. This addition adds over 1,600 hours and over 50 new titles to Crunchyroll’s service. In addition, starting on April 1, there will be brand-new series that will be exclusive to Crunchyroll coming to the service as well.


Fans who were worried about a price hike can relax as Crunchyroll confirms that the prices will not be changing. Crunchyroll’s prices are currently set at $7.99/mo for their Fan tier, $9.99/mo for their Mega Fan tier, and $14.99/mo for their Ultimate Fan tier.


In addition to merging the anime catalogs, going forward, the Funimation name will operate as Crunchyroll, LLC. and has initiated a rebranding process.

“When we brought Funimation and Crunchyroll together last year, our top priority was to put fans first,” said Colin Decker, CEO of Crunchyroll. “Unifying all of our brands and services under the Crunchyroll brand globally enables us to offer more value than ever before as we combine subs, dubs, simulcasts, library, music, movies, manga—all into one subscription. The new Crunchyroll is the realization of a dream, and we are grateful to the creators of anime and the millions of fans who have joined us in making the community what it is today.”

Crunchyroll has released a video highlighting the merge which you can check out below:
