I think Crunchyroll will eventually buy out Funimation forming a single company.

Agree or disagree?

Is Gen getting ready to retire? Otherwise, I doubt that.

funimation is supposedly worth 16 million dollars, if this site is to be believed. by comparison, CR is estimated at about $180 million and can make $16 million in less than a year.
Funimation makes about $1 million a year according to the same site, which means it would take about 16 years for CR to get back the $16 million spent. spending $16 million and only getting ROI after 16 years. that's a horrible business decision.

veredict: extremely unlikely.

They just formed a brand new application called VRV which gives you access to both crunchyroll and funimation's library as well as several others. They are already in a partnership, so it's doubtful that one will try to take over the other. The staff over at both companies are quite passionate and I do not think that they will be considering that; no.

Giggle that site measures web traffic to the domain. If the site has x amount of ads thats how much it could make. Cr has a lot of world wide traffic where as Funimation blocks traffic outside of NA and UK.

Otter media is CR's parent company holding 80% of it. So, I wouldn't be surprised if the company eventually has buys a slice of Funimation.

I agree with Aroll, Funi and Crunchy are in a Partnership and are now included in VRV (Which I am so exited for, get to the UK already!) Which means they are in it together. There is no need for one to take over the other unless something really bad happened (god forbid) and the surviving company wanted to try and keep the failing one alive somehow.

Doubt it they don't really need to anyway.
