Funimation and Crunchyroll are partnering up

On September 8th Funimation and Crunchyroll, the two biggest anime distributors, have announced an exciting new partnership. This will bring more anime to anime lovers. They’ve agreed to share existing licenses, and split responsibilities for upcoming anime titles. Funimation, known for its spectacular dubbing, will be simulcasting dub anime, while Crunchyroll simulcast subs.

Gen Fukunaga, CEO of Funimation, stated Funimation would be focusing on pushing out dubs on a weekly base. Kun Gao, Co-found and GM of Crunchyroll, stated that over 50 new titles would be split between the distributors as licenses are acquired.

To make good on their word, subtitled anime previously only available on Funimation is now available on Crunchyroll streaming services.
