If you mean on CR, not a single dubbed title should be affected, as none came from Funimation. Some dubbed titles will be disappearing from Funimation (likely only the ones CR commissioned the dub for), but those will reappear on CR. CR will be losing most (if not all) of the subbed catalog from Funimation (which will of course be available from Funimation again).

Good thing I finished Noragami's second season a few weeks ago...

Most of Funi's catalogue was unavailable to The Netherlands. If they really can keep shows released in the
past 2 years my queue should be fine.

But it still worries me. Hidive only gets a few new shows each season for us and the past 2 seasons they had nothing I was interested in.
Amazon prime has like 5 titles I'd actually want to see. Netflix has been getting some catalogue from
the old Daisuke but they haven't released the second season of March comes in Like a Lion. Nor the newest season
of Lupin the third... Assuming they have the rights since they have the old seasons, they still don't seem to understand
the Anime audience...

If this breakup means less new titles for Crunchy, I'll probably just watch less Anime.
Pirate sites are nests of viruses and it's too much of a hassle to surf across many different
platforms to find the shows I want to watch anyway.

I'd be a lot happier if they ever got round to giving us a list...

Specifically in regards to lupin the 3rd, their season labels are weird, particularly before lupin the 3rd part 4. I have no idea whether part 4 and part 5 are on the same license, but I can guarantee part 1-3 are separate licenses originally, though they might be bundled together now. Of course, I'm in the US, so I have no idea who holds the various Lupin the 3rd licenses in the netherlands.

Can't wait to get a full list of which shows are leaving both platforms. I'm really interested to see which shows Crunchyroll is pulling from Funimation, because it seems like the majority of Funimation's home video releases in the last year have had Crunchyroll's logo on them.

When companies compete, everyone loses. There goes literally all my favorite anime titles.

Awww honestly this is such a shame but it's been a good ride. But yes like others, I hope we can get the list of titles to be removed asap to have a chance to catch them before they are gone.

So, is there anyone here who can tell me how Funimation's app on PS4 has been performing? Last time I heard, it was a flaming pile of garbage and Funimation was doing nothing to fix it.

It's gonna make the anime industry lose out big time since i predict piracy is going to rise a huge amount. Usually when people split the market like they are doing and people can't find the anime they want anywhere because (hulu) or (amazon) has it then they just go and pirate it. This split is just going to make things worse. Not to mention the very recent development that Sony has started censoring some of the anime release games like senran Kagura. I am honestly a bit worried for anime's future but we will see how things go.

The really dumb part about this? The anime industry in Japan has a lot of profit because of merchandise. Not streaming. Streaming is a method to prevent the loss of profit, to avoid digital piracy, and draw in new customers by waving your hands up and down and saying "look what we have!" to sell merch from a money gaining standpoint.
