  1. If it brings Funimation titles back to CR then I’m for it. It would help me pay less on monthly anime shtick.

    • I agree with you. I never used VRV, but I hear people use it to stream many shows like Funimation, Crunchyroll and Rooster Teeth. If I had it, I would want everything in account lol.
