CrunchyRoll Confirms Funimation’s Dubbed/Subtitled Anime Series Will Merge in May 2022

Announced a few months ago, following a series of acquisitions over the past year, Funimation’s anime streaming service is gradually transitioning to CrunchyRoll, with the latter set to be discontinued at a later date. . With both services still actively maintained in the meantime, while current streams can be found exclusively on CrunchyRoll, the anime series backcatalog will be done over a period of months.

While there are still a ton of new series to move, CrunchyRoll today confirmed previously released works that will be made available through their service this month, both subtitled and dubbed. Scroll down to see if your favorite shows have made it to May 2022.
