Need to see that list up ASAP so I can binge watch whatever is leaving!


It's long-winded to be sure, but I've been using this site which lists legal streaming to see which shows in my queue are joint CR and Funi:

Granted, my queue is relatively short. Could still give you an idea of possible losses before an official list is produced.

No doubt this is Sony's idea and would be typical of Hollywood studio thinking, if we can't have all the money we're taking our ball and going home. Mean while consumers are increasingly annoyed by the fragmentation of streaming services. At least according to Sandvine BitTorrent piracy is on the rise again after years of decline.

Just when I started watching anime again to.

This partnership was a good thing, especially since their shows weren't eventually put behind the paywall. I don't know why CR is still doing that for all their shows. Looks like accessibility is taking a downturn again. Disappointing.

Hm can't say I'm surprised this happened. Be interesting to see what shows dissapear and what stays.

Also you might want to consider getting any of the bluray co owned cruchy funi releases. They might dissapear soon.

So what is going to happen with future physical releases for licensed Crunchyroll titles. Thats all I really need to know so I can continue to buy anime blu-rays. Will Crunchyroll distribute their own now or team with Sentai? Really want to know.

Gonna need that list... seems the binge is about to go into full overdrive once again...

Seriously tho this freakin sucks, I only used crunchyroll cause most of the anime's that I watched, or rather had interest in were on the site.
Over all I see this as a major blow to the, currently library of animes and its down right depressing.

I feel like we have the rights to know what other shows besides for the 'big' ones will be impacted by this. Will you guys still have CCS: Clear Card Arc up? Or Case Closed. As a fan of Case Closed for almost a decade now, I was elated to see the show on CR these past couple of years, especially since FUNi hasn't been doing anything new with it since they released the 6th film. To not have this show to look forward to, especially with a huge arc about to be adapted that every fan has been looking forward to, this just leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth.

Never understood how the partnership actually affected people outside US but i guess it is safe to assume nothing good for us on South America, now there is Netflix with shows super late, Amazon that steals some shows, hidive that is picking up some steam and with that announcement funi might finally go global, too many services to pay now, every company decided to have a piece of the cake but can see how piracy for anime will rise once more, quite a shame.

All this does is encourage piracy. Great work Sony, you're a real mastermind.

This sucks. I hope we don't lose MHA...I know CR had the streaming rights before the Funi partnership, but if we lose that then I'm switching to Funi and HiDive.

last time i checked , funimation is a us only service, so it DOES indeed suck for people outside us. the only way for us to watch funimation titles was to watch it on crunchyroll, and with the partnership gone that option has been taken away. i dont know what to think of this, it might be as you say, but considering how long funimation has been around , i can't see them going global .
