DISCLAIMER / Posting valid why CR ? FUNI broke up


This is Funimation's take and it appeared in ANN /Newsweek

No comment from Cr at all ! Even Sony gave Funi a chance / Funi wanted more regional streaming This what Justin was talking about not seeing eye to eye

Please I am just passing this along TBH I wished they could have worked things out

BTW There is still some Winter 2019 anime that both CR / FUNI had previous agrements


Funimation President: 'We Tried to Renew Deal with Crunchyroll' / Gen Fukunaga also explains why he believes Funimation's deal with Hulu "makes sense" ANN NEWS

one could always join Funimation official site, it's not that hard, the site is easy to move around in and it's free or paid. the app is found on many platforms now as well as a few partners left with others. they also have an official YouTube channel. I joined over a year ago, they had movies that wasn't found anywhere else, now that I have a new platform for it to play on, now I'm able to stream even more. it's not that big of a deal and I just don't understand why people are so stressed about it, it's not like they pulled it from the net entirely, just partnerships come and go is all.

As an afterthought / speculation I wonder if FUNI just wanted the anime they brought to the deal like MHA / AOT / RAILDEX etc to be their global broadcast have no proof just rambling

BTW this stiil applies Basically I blame all of them how they treat ( %@&*$? ) the anime fans / Gulity !!

Meh. I'm kind of done with streaming services for animé. If a series interests me I preview it via torrent or something, and if I like it enough to watch then I buy the DVDs.

The dispute centered around international expansion. Under the old deal with Crunchyroll, Funimation wasn’t allowed to stream in certain regions.

Sound like monopoly I just pirated most shows now anyway. Otherwise I end up paying like 300 something in My currency if I sub to every shit business with exclusive anime titles

To me, the most interesting part of the ANN article was this bit:

Fukunaga said that the acquisitions for the winter 2019 anime season were "mostly" still obtained under the Crunchyroll and Funimation partnership,...

The split was announced in mid-October (not long after the start of the fall simulcast season), and certainly effective by early November, yet most of Funimation's winter shows are still supposed to be from the partnership?

That might make sense if those shows were CR co-productions, but I would have expected CR would have a clause in the contract that would have ended Funimation's rights to any of those shows that hadn't premiered as soon as the partnership ended.

It will be as interesting to see what shows Funimation and CR end up sharing for the winter season as it will be to see how many titles Funimation has in total.

It would be funny to see Funi's parent company e-mail after the agreement totally ends, could be just like the CR forum topics about "Where did all the anime' go?!?"

Just as anime is scheduled years out, it wouldn't surprise me that contracts for animes were made well in advance too.

I sort of get it but I sort of don't -- why would Crunchyroll hinder international expansion unless they simply didn't have the financial clout to bully into new markets? CR aired Funi's stuff wherever they could it was mutually beneficial.

Sounds to me like,
Funi: We want to play our shows in more areas.
CR: Shit, so do we! But that stuff costs a fortune for some countries!
Funi: Well it appears we have nothing more to discuss...
