Crunchyroll subscribers now have access to the world's largest anime library with more than 40,000 episodes and over 16,000 hours of content. And that's not including the upcoming content for the Spring anime season, which will be the biggest on record! A promotional video has been released to celebrate the announcement, so make sure and check it out below.
It was also announced that the Sony-owned Funimation Global Group, LLC will be unified under the Crunchyroll banner and will operate as Crunchyroll, LLC. This solidifies Crunchyroll as the single, global brand for anime.
Existing and new Crunchyroll subscribers have access to library and simulcast titles and episodes that were previously exclusively on Funimation. Subscription pricing for Crunchyroll remains the same ($7.99 - $14.99 per month).
“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.”
Funimation and Wakanim are officially moving to Crunchyroll, kicking off an exciting step in anime's streaming evolution. That means more subs and dubs, bigger events, and one ultimate home for anime!
