Crunchyroll was acquired by Sony’s Funimation for over $ 1 billion late last year, and now we’re finally seeing what that means for anime fans who use those viewing platforms. Crunchyroll is getting a number of shows from Funimation as the two major anime brands come together to create one place for all your anime needs.
According to a Crunchyroll blog post, Funimation, Wakanim, and Crunchyroll’s VRV will all be under one subscription as new anime come to Crunchyroll starting today. That includes shows like Yu Yu Hakusho, Tokyo Ghoul, Cowboy Bebop, Mushoku Tensei, and many more. You can have a look at the full list of anime arriving today right here.
The post also lets Funimation users know that they should move to a Crunchyroll subscription as soon as possible. To make this transition easier, Funimation, Wakanim, and VRV subscribers will get 60 days of free Crunchyroll Premium through a code that gets emailed to them.
You can check out the short little trailer below for the unification as this huge new anime library is created.
If this seems like a lot to take in right now, there’s a FAQ page as well as for those who have a few questions about the merging of the two huge brands.
