COMBINING TWO FAN-FAVORITE BRANDS, LOOT ANIME PARTNERS WITH CRUNCHYROLL
Loot Crate and Crunchyroll Team Up for Highest Quality Monthly Anime Merchandise Subscription Service
SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 19, 2016 – Making the popular subscription service Loot Anime even better, Loot CrateTM, the company behind Loot Crate, Loot Gaming, Loot Pets and Level Up monthly subscription services for geeks, gamers and pop culture lovers, has teamed up with Crunchyroll, Inc., the leading anime content streaming service. This partnership, to be co-branded with Loot Anime and Crunchyroll, will offer fans of both services the most comprehensive anime experience.
With more than a half million Looters across its services, Loot Crate pairs phenomenal customer support with monthly mystery box subscriptions curated to feature exclusive collectibles, apparel and accessories. Crunchyroll’s strong relationships with Japanese licensors and focus on serving the anime community will take Loot Anime to the next level. Through this partnership, not only will subscribers receive the highest quality anime merchandise, including figures, collectibles, Manga, apparel and accessories, but they will also gain access to exclusive merchandise curated to match the latest streaming content and licenses available from Crunchyroll. Subscribers will also gain access to additional exclusive benefits to be announced at a later date.
“A partnership with Loot Crate made a lot of sense,” says Kun Gao, General Manager and Co-Founder of Crunchyroll. “At Crunchyroll, we have always been about more than just video content, which is why we have a vibrant community, highly active forums, manga service, latest anime news and an ecommerce store. These types of experiences provide our passionate users with multiple avenues to interact with what they love. This partnership with Loot Crate is an extension of the community building strategy we’ve had since day one.”
"This partnership combines the best of both of our worlds - Loot Crate’s exclusive collection of products, plus Crunchyroll’s unparalleled library of streaming anime titles. Subscribers will now have a more intimate experience with the best anime,” said Chris Davis, CEO of Loot Crate. “Crunchyroll’s decision to team up with Loot Crate is a testament to our company's manufacturing and fulfillment expertise, curation approach and passionate anime community."
Existing Loot Anime subscribers will see no change in price or frequency, but they can now look forward to even better content, exclusive access to Crunchyroll content and more. With packages starting at $22.95 per month, Loot Anime’s subscription price will remain the same. Every crate is valued at over $60, making this the most cost effective way for fans to enjoy a diverse mix of premium anime products.
