I can think of 3 sites.

1. Hulu also simulcasted it in the US so if they don't get S2 it will have nothing to do with Daisuki shutting down
2. Viz has a partnership with TubiTV (https://tubitv.com/category/anime)
3. One Punch Man S1 has been added to Anime Strike. https://www.amazon.com/One-Punch-Man-Season-1/dp/B01MS6IP6B

Hopefully all 3 get it since TubiTV is the only one of those that streams outside the US (unless Viz lets Amazon Prime stream it outside the US)

No surprise really, especially considering they got nothing this season.

It was overall a poorly supported attempt.

It's also on Netflix, S1 that is.

RIP DAISUKI. Hate how you basically linked through Hulu but you were a decent service.

The Japanese studios/companies saw Amazon, Netflix and FuniCrunchy fight over their shows with large sums of cash. Probably thought it was better than doing it themselves.

Netflix doesn't simulcast so that's why I didn't list them. I imagine they'll get it eventually though.

Anime simualcasting is in such an upheaval Not that this really affects too much / just a handful of shows every seaqson but with Anime Strike / HiDive / Netflix / CR-FUNI it was bound to happen

TBH I am kinda tired of all the changes / grief eveythinh has caused

I had 2 subs and anime was easy to watch Now I feel like its like I dont enjoy it as much with that community feel gone

Can't say I'm surprised. I tried using it a few times and it was a miserable experience. When I went there earlier this season to see what new simulcasts they had... well, there was nothing.

It's probably no great loss for the US market, but I know there were a few shows there for other regions that Crunchy didn't have for those regions, so I do feel bad for anyone that was relying on them and hoping for more from them. Maybe other options will arise for them though.

The service that screwed the promotion and broadcasting of Love Live Sunshine for Latin America alongside Funimation shuts down. I love happy endings.

Just hope Cancer Strike won't get exclusive.
