F.A.Q.

Will all content on Funimation be available subtitled on Crunchyroll?
Both companies are working to make as many shows available to both services as possible, and we will be announcing additional titles in the future.

Is this a merger between your companies?
No, Funimation and Crunchyroll have entered into a distribution partnership. We will still continue to be separate companies serving the anime community.

What new shows are coming to Crunchyroll?
As of today, we’ve got subs for the current season of D.Gray-man HALLOW, Puzzle & Dragons X, and FIRST LOVE MONSTER, as well as PSYCHO-PASS, Cowboy Bebop, and Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash.

We’re excited to add more shows in the weeks and months ahead, so keep checking back!

Are any titles leaving Crunchyroll?
No subtitled shows are leaving, but you’ll find dubbed versions of Free!, and Testament of Sister New Devil over at FunimationNow in the coming weeks, with many more dubs from our Summer 2016 season to follow!

What will happen to titles that Crunchyroll has previously announced it will be making for home video?
They will still be released, and will be distributed through our partner, Funimation. Crunchyroll and Funimation will be working together to produce all future titles.

What if I subscribe to both services now?
In general, you’ll get subbed anime from Crunchyroll and dubbed anime from FunimationNow.

Plus there’s good news! Although both subscriptions are independent, our friends at Funimation have announced a new, reduced price for their dubbed streaming service!

What happens to my subscription to FunimationNow?
For all questions regarding subscriptions to FunimationNow, please refer to Funimation’s FAQs.

Will the cost of a Crunchyroll premium membership increase?
Nope! We’re still $6.95 for a Premium membership and $11.95 for a Premium+ membership.

Will you be subbing the anime you get from Funimation in other languages besides English?
We have not announced any other language subs at this time.

What does this mean if I buy my anime via physical releases?
Funimation will now be producing and distributing home video for select Crunchyroll titles, starting with the Summer 2016 season. Our shows will also be available on all the digital outlets where you buy anime including iTunes, Google Play, PlayStation, Xbox and more.

Does this mean Crunchyroll will no longer do home video releases?
Not at all! Funimation is our distribution partner, so you’ll see Crunchyroll home video releases in all the same places you can find Funimation DVDs, Blu-Rays, and downloads.

If my questions aren’t answered here, where should I go?

For questions about your Crunchyroll account, please contact our customer support team.

I may sound bitter here but is this the reason that Crunchyroll lost many Sentai shows a couple months ago or is that an unrelated issue?

From Funimation's FAQ:

Are you changing the price for FunimationNow since you won't have subs anymore?


I take this to mean that all of Funimation's content, including simulcasts and catalog titles will, eventually, be available, subbed, on Crunchyroll? Otherwise this is just a $1 price hike for a Funi Sub Pass member, at least until all the shows I specifically want to watch are on Crunchyroll.

But there are still a ton of licensing restrictions, so since I live in Europe, I still can't watch quite a lot of anime here...

Are dubbed episodes going to be leaving Crunchyroll for Funimation, or is Funimation just getting access to CR's dubs?

Well... dang, just as Funimation should have been launching their HTML5 players, we lose all subbed anime to Crunchyroll. I hope this means your guys player and QA will be getting better. There are too many issues with both.

Also, for your apps, please stop with the hardcoding or at least make sure the subtitles encoded right. There are too many cases of subs just outright missing.

Since FUN is dubbing 91 Days, Mob Psycho 100 and Orange does this mean the dubs won't be on CR?

All dub content is a Funimation now thing. So if you want dubs, you go to them. If you just want subs, you stay with Crunchyroll.

Question - will this mean in general more access to uncensored content of CR shows via FunimationNow service as they generally go uncensored versions for their shows.

So I have a few questions regarding the partnership

My first question is how will this affect sentai filmworks? are they officially hands off and not allowed to license any properties for home release since funimation will now be doing that? or are shows that funimation doesn't wish to give a home release will be allowed to be licensed by sentai ?


My other question is that once this is all fully implemented, will Crunchyroll be strictly subs and Funimation strictly dubs ?
Or will there still be some middle ground where funimation will still have some subs that crunchyroll does not?
