You misunderstood. I was referring to a permanent FULL merger. Not a partnership nor the 1 they had awhile back (and yes, btw, I did read that Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership forum & the comments there because THAT'S WHERE THIS LOGO ORIGINATED FROM). That is why I didn't mention that. I've seen this with Yahoo & Verizon, Essendent and Staples and so on. So, I am not late. Business "politics" can throw "chances" and "statistics" out the window at any given moment. A lot of it depends on the market and who is at the top (investors, board members, etc.) Proof was in the partnership. After several tries, who knows what number is the charm. It's obvious that someone or they are trying to work something out...eventually. It was to test the waters, sort of speak. Stuff like this don't always happen within a few tries or a brief period of time. As we both said, 1 likely will buy the other which is relative to my point.


Well, anything's possible, I guess. Disney bought Fox, CBS and Viacom are merging, and AT&T bought Time Warner, so there are three biggies, but Comcast is in that giant mix as well. Whether or not Sony Pictures even wants to allow themselves to be split off from Sony Entertainment and be sold, it's anyone's guess who among those will make the biggest play for them. Whatever happens, it probably isn't going to be good. It's not going back to the days when CR and Funi were independent companies, and could just work things out between themselves without corporate ownership interference.

Yep. My point exactly! And those were my main surprises. Also, it's not like YouTube would be an independent company again outside of Google. But as we both know anything's possible, and on the flipside forceful buyouts DO happen. One of the biggest conflict of this is when companies get TOO big (there's a word for that which describes exactly my point). That's when the FTC, I believe, gets involved.
