Existing and new Crunchyroll subscribers will now have access to library and simulcast content previously available exclusively to Funimation.
1600+ hours and 50+ newly added titles will now be available to subscribers, following the promise to Australian and New Zealand fans that the merger of AnimeLab and Funimation, and now Funimation and Crunchyroll, would bring together the previously separate services into a single subscription.
Crunchyroll’s pricing remains unchanged, offering fans the ultimate anime experience with subs, dubs, films, and simulcast series in over 200 countries and territories and in 10 languages.
Colin Decker, CEO of Crunchyroll said, “When we brought Funimation and Crunchyroll together last year, our top priority was to put fans first.
“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 realisation 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,” he said.
40,000+ sub and dub episodes are now available on Crunchyroll for Australian and New Zealand fans to enjoy, with more hitting the service daily over the next few weeks ahead.
In addition to the consolidation of SVOD services, Sony-owned Funimation Global Group, LLC will now operate as Crunchyroll, LLC and has initiated rebranding across its global footprint to solidify Crunchyroll as the single, global brand for anime.
Crunchyroll connects anime and manga fans across 200+ countries and territories with the content and experiences they love. In addition to free ad-supported and subscription premium content, Crunchyroll serves the anime community across events, theatrical, games, consumer products, collectibles, and manga publishing.
Crunchyroll, LLC is a joint venture between Sony Pictures Entertainment and Aniplex, Inc.
