When Crunchyroll and Funimation merged in August 2021, they promised anime fans that all of the content from both services would become available in one app. Today, Crunchyroll announced that existing and new Crunchyroll subscribers will have access to library and simulcast content previously exclusive to Funimation, starting today.
“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 now has over 40,000 subtitled and dubbed episodes for fans to enjoy, with more content coming in the weeks ahead. Crunchyroll will be adding more series to its library, along with new episodes of current series from Funimation.
While Crunchyroll is adding more content, prices for its ad-free subscription options have not changed. Crunchyroll tiers are still $7.99/month for Fan, $9.99/month for Mega Fan, and $14.99/month for Ultimate Fan. Funimation subscribers can go here for more information about about the move to Crunchyroll.
