Crunchyroll and Adult Swim team up?!

See the source image

Remember in 2016 where Funimation and Crunchyroll teamed up? Good news, Crunchyroll is going to be teaming up with TV night time program Adult Swim. We all know that Adult Swim shows adult cartoons like Family Guy, Rick and Morty and Robot Chicken, but on Saturday night, they show the anime program Toonami which shows anime like Dragon Ball Super, My Hero Academia and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures. According to Deadline, Crunchyroll is teaming up with Toonami Adult Swim. This means that Toonami and Crunchyroll will be cooperating on more licensed shows and it will help expand more English Dub anime for Crunchyroll. WarnerMeda (a company in control of HBO, Turners and Warner Bros) released a statement from the chairman that they want to help create original anime titles for anime fans:

“Our partnership with Crunchyroll will open up exciting new possibilities for both of us,” Jason DeMarco, SVP and creative director for on-air at Adult Swim, said in the official announcement. “This will expand Toonami’s already great programming to include even more premiere and original anime. It’s a great time to be an anime fan!”

“Our mission is to grow anime globally, which makes Adult Swim the perfect partner as Toonami has been incredibly influential in the growth of anime here in the U.S.,” Crunchyroll GM Joanne Waage said. “We can’t wait to show our fans what we have in store for them through this new programming partnership. Expect new co-productions, expanded distribution of dubs, and generally more accessible anime!”

According to Deadline, it was thanks to these two that we got Mob Psycho 100 on Toonami and we had Blade Runner – Black Lotus.

Funimation president states they wanted to renew contract with Crunchyroll

Remember the ground-breaking news about Funimation and Crunchryoll splitting up? I got some news to share from the words of the Funimation president Gen Fukunaga about what happened that led to these powerhouse companies to depart ways. Also to add to that is Sony bought Funimation.

Gen Fukunaga: “Sony had to make this tough decision,” Fukunaga said. “If [Crunchyroll wasn’t] going to budge on those terms, then we just have to double down and decide if we’re going to go at it alone. And that’s what happened.

Meaning, Funimation wanted to renew the contract with Crunchyroll, but Crunchyroll didn’t agree with the terms and wanted to instead do its own thing.

Funi-Crunchyroll news – Anime Dubbed and Subbed are added/return after major split

Hello anime fans! I got some interesting news for you if you are interested on binge watching some anime. If you didn’t know, the anime companies that were partnered up Funimation and Crunchyroll were split up after two years of working together streaming anime and selling home videos of anime. The result of this partnership helped Funimation dub some Crunchyroll licensed anime into English Dub and helped sell home videos and the same time brought anime from Funimation to Crunchyroll to be streamed. But now that these two powerhouses are separated, here is some news in regards to your favorite anime.

Funimation

Funimation announced on Friday that they will be adding 300+ anime in subbed format to their list and will be available to anyone with a FunimationNow account. I am not going to list all of them, but anime like Baka and Test, Black Butler and Cowboy Bebop will be added as subtitled anime. If you like anime from Funimation, but preferred anime in subtitles, now you can enjoy it your favorite Funimation shows on your account.

Crunchyroll

Previously mentioned, Crunchyroll and Funimation teamed up and released English Dub on certain anime titles. However, after being split, these English Dubbed anime from Crunchyroll will still be intact and won’t be affected. Crunchyroll anime like Berserk, Taboo Tattoo and Masamune-kun’s Revenge will be safe and will be available in both Crunchyroll and Funimation platforms. These anime will also be in subtitles for viewer preference.

Partnership between Crunchyroll and Funimation ends?

https://i2.wp.com/static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luffy_blubber_fixed_4736.jpg

What started off as an incredible partnership in 2016, now the biggest anime companies Funimation and Crunchyroll are splitting up and going their separate ways. If you didn’t know, Funimation and Crunchyroll teamed up in 2016 to help spread out more anime for fans. Thanks to this, fans were able to stream Funimation licensed anime like Cowboy Bebop on Crunchyroll and Funimation was able to sell anime like Gintama season 3 and Twin Exorcists in English Dub. With this sudden news, Funimation anime that are dubbed and subbed are heading to FunimationNow and it won’t be appearing in Crunchyroll. However, as far I know, it looks like anime planned home videos are still in progress and it won’t be heavily affected. To make matters worse, VRV will be removing the Funimation channel and will be replacing it with HIDIVE. HIDIVE is a streaming site where fans can watch anime titles licensed by Sentai Filmworks such as Clannad, My Love Story and Kill Me Baby. The pact will end this November 9th.

Toonami adds Megalobox in December!

Great news for Toonami fans! Announced by English company Viz Media at the New York Comic-Con, Viz Media will be allowing the popular fighting anime Megalobox to join the other anime in the U.S. anime block of Toonami. Megalobox will be joining the TV schedules this upcoming December and it will be in English Dub!

Here is what Crunchyroll describes this anime:

A desolate land stretches out from the city of poverty. A motorcycle speeds recklessly, blowing clouds of sand and dust. The rider is the protagonist of this story – he has neither a name nor a past. All he has is his ring name, “Junk Dog” and a technique for rigging MEGALOBOX matches with his pal Gansaku Nanbu, which they use to support their hand-to-mouth lives. JD is bored, resigned, and unfulfilled. Yuri has been the reigning champion of MEGALOBOX for the past few years. He has the skills and presence of a true champion. This is a story of JD and his rival, Yuri.
