So which sub should I cancel? Since they overlap I'll only need 1 sub anyway.

i think Funi is getting the short end in this deal tbh

crunchy gets good shows and will get anime faster. it'll take longer for funi to get dubs. i honestly preferred it just the way it was. i doubt dubs are worth even 5.99 US alone

Great for both. Neither are getting the others full catalogues but now both keep anime fans interested In legal viewing as theres less "exclusivity" and distribution should be on point too.

i'd keep both until they get all tye shows together (if they do) but if you don't care for dubs then go for CR, if you do and can wait longer for shows then Funi. if you want both then stick with both.

Good, then maybe I can stop going to Funi's shitty server to watch what CR doesn't have here.

Looks like Funimation is going to get rid of all their subs, if I read their faqs right. Those who currently had a sub-pass with funimation will no longer be charged as of today and will be given free 60 days of their new subscription plan. I'm guessing they are removing you from their subscription since the sub-plan no longer exist and it looks like I'll be moving back to crunchyroll and also all the other sub-pass subscribers as well.

Sounds like a mix of Collusion, Dividing territories and a Coercive monopoly. All of which are highly illegal under US law. But I doubt anyone will file charges as the Anime industry in the US is fairly small compared to others. so price fixing may be next.

Not sure what to think. You'll still need to take out a second mortgage to buy Aniplex releases. Viz still has HxH and JoJo.... Does this mean Crunchy will start licensing movies now?

Wait, this is seriously a serious thing?!? Huh. Guess I won't bother resubbing to Funi come Christmas. I don't bother watching their dubs as is.
