geeknewsnetwork.net/2016/09/09/funi-roll-or-crunchimation/ talks about the partnership between these 2 streaming giants.
It was not a merger from the legal sense. However, from business and for all intents/purposes standpoints, I suppose it could rightly be a merger of sorts. That said, do you Funi-Roll or Crunchimation? I have been using Funi-Roll/FuniRoll.

There was an 4/1/2016 CR thread called "Crunchyroll to merge into Funimation by the end of 2016?!? [APRIL FOOLS]". So, the 2 companies didn't merge by the legal definition. However, it as almost prophetic as 9/8/2016 is when we got an official announcement of the alliance.

I don't have any name for them at all. I haven't really thought about the Funi part of the combination for a very long time.

My OTP.

In all seriousness, I usually just call it 'the CR & Funi deal'.

talk about a merge for the masses, however some of CR things are already from the funi section. they'd increase some serious cash flow that's for sure. but, since I can't stream on funi, I can go there and look at upcoming stuff and wait for either Hulu, netflix or CR to get it, otherwise it'll be somewhere eventually. sometimes I've seen it park up on youtube, so I am sneaky and use that app on my tv to watch stuff, but, for the most part, I work things down and enjoy what I'm watching sort of thing.

I enjoy both Crunchyroll and Funimation... I prefer the search feature of Crunchyroll and the digital 10 second advance of Funimation. I hope they keep the best of both worlds.

Oh, I would enjoy watching people call them "Crunchy Fun" although that sounds like a bad ecchi title.
