As I assume that these are done in some order of popularity, every time I see this I think, "Why don't people like Tatami Galaxy more?"

Does anyone know if these are the broadcast or uncensored versions of these shows? I lost my Crunchyroll membership recently, so I can't check...

If they're coming straight from Funimation, then they should be the uncensored versions. Provided, of course, that you're watching on a paid account.

Can't wait to watch Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040.

At this point they should just consider merging the two services into one.

At any rate, I'm finding fewer and fewer reasons to pay for both services separately, not when Anime Strike is starting to make huge inroads with shows not available elsewhere.

As long as they got that double paywall that road is nothing but a huge toll bridge.

True, but I already subscribe to Amazon Prime, so it isn't as big a stretch for me.

Well, Tatami Galaxy doesn't have a dub (as much as it deserves one), so asking Crunchyroll to take it would mean asking Funimation to give it up.

Funi seems to be becoming CRs stealth way to reintroduce a tiered subscription model.

It's not the 18th over there yet so no-one can. DxD was uncensored.

We're not allowed to even browse the site, but isn't VRV there for that?

Well good. After Funi updated their site, it went from hard-to-navigate to impossible-to-navigate. I will be much happier to watch their stuff on Crunchyroll. Move more soon!

This good news.

I know people complain about Crunchyroll a lot but I'm able to enjoy a huge catalogue of anime for either free or for a small fee. I'm no longer too upset about the few titles Amazon got though not seeing Re Creators still stings...

My only issue with the CR partnership, I hate the font size and the style CR uses.

I do like Funimation's font and it's size that they've been using for years, though their partners new player doesn't support that font, but at least they allow the font to be resized.

Which would be sensible, considering that they're already moving towards FUNimation being dub only and Crunchyroll hosting subs. We already long canceled our Funi sub because we almost exclusively watch subs.

Can't say it much affects me since while I only have a Funimation account I generally watch dubs, but I do feel like this particular partnership could end up blowing up in their faces because it's really not very consumer-friendly and if you only care about one or the other there's no reason to pay for both.

Hope they take their sweet time about moving over Haruhi though, that's a show I can only watch the sub of. Granted I own the series on Blu-ray anyway but still, something to be said for convenience.
