If it brings Funimation titles back to CR then I’m for it. It would help me pay less on monthly anime shtick.
It reminds me of the 2016 deal with these two partnered up. I bet once this happens, it will make streaming anime easy.
Would honestly love to see Funimation back on VRV. Not sure if that’s actually even a possibility, but I would love to not have to pay for multiple services lol.
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.
