What could be more exciting than anime to an anime fan? More Anime!
In a world where the content we consume is becoming more and more governed by streaming websites, anime streaming giants Crunchyroll and Funimation have announced they’ve partnered up to bring us more anime!
FunimationNow is Funimation’s streaming service, which has become popular for providing dubbed anime while Crunchyroll is renowned for providing subtitled anime online. What the partnership means is that Funimation titles – including D.Gray Man Hallow, First Love Monster and Puzzle & Dragons X – will be available to stream on Crunchyroll. And, now we will also have Broadcast Dubs of Crunchyroll’s summer titles, including 91 Days, Mob Psycho 100 and Orange available to FunimationNow viewers.
What has often been an issue with anime fans being attached to one of these services was the inability to watch particular anime. However, now fans of both FunimationNow and Crunchyroll will have access to some titles from either party’s catalogue, with Cowboy Bebop, Grimgar Of Fantasy And Ash, and Psycho-Pass from FunimationNow now available on Crunchyroll and Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club and The Testament Of Sister New Devil from Crunchyroll now available on FunimationNow.
For Crunchyroll, the following anime will be available in the following territories:
- Cowboy Bebop: US and Canada
- Puzzle & Dragons X: US, Canada, UK, Ireland
- D.Gray-man Hallow: US, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands

- Grimgar Of Fantasy And Ash: US, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark

It’ll be interesting to see what they add to their slate in the future, and this is absolutely great news for the anime fandom.
