  1. First time I saw Crunchyroll tweeting about this partnership, I was taken aback. I didn’t see this coming. At all. I was so shocked. I didn’t dare celebrate yet. What if it was a prank? But it’s September now, not April. It only sank in when I got a newsletter from Funimation talking about this partnership with Crunchyroll. More power to them, but I hope they keep their prices competitive & affordable to us fans.

    • Yeah this was very surprising. I didn’t think this was going to happen. Now with the official news, we can safely say it’s true. I sense that a lot more anime will be released than ever with the partnership. That’s true what you said, I didn’t think about it. I hope they don’t bite more than they can chew.
