Kinda expected, I am REALLY glad I have finished most titles that are being listed (even it's a partial list).


Good luck to those who are trying to clear their queue list as soon as possible, time isn't too abundant even for intense binge-watching (personally, I can't watch more than 6 episodes of anime per day due to work and graduate school at same time)


From now on, we are back to the status-quo 2 years ago (you may argue it's worse), and every season/s announcement may become even more nerve-wrecking (insert why XX isn't on XXX service, expect a lot more of those)

Ugh this is such balls. I mean I get it, but I signed up again for funimation and have been using their app/website over the past few days and they’re still such garbage. How long has this company been around and yet they still can’t fix the same issues I remember having like eight plus years ago . . .

Now about that Re:Zero dub... if Funimation is going to cancel Part 2's release, then I guess Part 2's dub can premiere ON CRUNCHYROLL then?

One gets the feeling that Funimation and Crunchyroll are going be to doing alot of spiting and one-upping each other in the future.

I'm sure their is a legally binding contract keeps Funimation from doing that. (The terms of the BD release timeframe are not going to be the same as the streaming one.) But you better buy any CrunchyFun BDs while you can since who knows how long they will be available for and it's pretty much a guarantee that they'll go out of print once the contracted time is over.

Crunchyroll is going to have to find a new BD distributor to the rest of their series unless they are planning on going for digital-only releases or maybe even streaming-only. The last thing I knew AT&T/Otter Media did have a BD distribution company unless one is about to bought by them in the coming months.

CR could always have sentai distribute. I'm sure sentai would be happy to make a deal like that since they are going to have a full calendar month with no releases in February.

They have Warner Brothers, who already distributes for Viz. I’m sure they can handle distribution for CR as well. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they started working with Sentai again, especially considering the two are already mending fences.

I wonder if all those dubbed titles listed are leaving Funi then, if so, that is going to be a lot of lost content, especially since it is a partial list.

I had no idea that CR had the rights to so many of those dubbed shows, I thought it was only the ones they had dubbed themselves(had dubbed in LA).

Gintama is already on CR dubbed

well,unless Crunchy plans to change their stance and replace their anime with the BD versions on the service(at least for the paid subscription),let's hope not,otherwise we won't have legit means to see anime with improved animation and uncensored violence and fanservice(they are showing Senran Kagura uncensored but who knows if that's going to be the norm from now on...)

Damn it. Haven't watched Ass Class, Blood Blockade or Grimgar yet, and now it looks like I wont. No way I could finish those in 5 days without calling in sick from work and that's not my style.

There are always bets that Funimation's Blu-rays will stay in print long after their deal is done, similar to Crunchyroll's former partnership with Discotek Media.

In their fansub days, they might have had some of Index.

What kind of issue do you have? FUNimation's ps4 app and android app(which I use to cast on my chromecast) have been working perfectly for me. I never have any issue with them. So whenever I see comment like yours I wonder if I'm just lucky or if there is something else.

The UI is pretty bland and could use some refining though.
