The Funimation and Crunchyroll merge means a few changes for subscribers, so a quick rundown before we get to the list. If you have a subscription to both Crunchyroll and Funimation, you can cancel the Funimation and keep the Crunchyroll and have access to all the shows.

If you just have the Funimation, you'll need to cancel it and sign up separately for Crunchyroll. If you have Crunchyroll, no changes are necessary.

Ease of access

Despite the reported and alleged antitrust issues this creates on a corporate level, the Funimation and Crunchyroll merge should prove to be a wise move for customers.

Since the advent of streaming services, every single major cable subscription station out there from HBO to AMC has jumped on the bandwagon started by Netflix and Hulu to offer their own bespoke streaming services. The Funimation and Crunchyroll merge should prove helpful there.

As far as customers go, this presents some confusion as it's difficult to tell what shows can be watched on what platform. The Funimation and Crunchyroll merge should at least put an end to anime exclusivity, at least for Funimation's products, and hopefully be more accessible for customers. Hopefully the Funimation and Crunchyroll merge will prove lucrative.


Conclusion

The Funimation and Crunchyroll merge provides well over 100 anime series to view on Crunchyroll's platform. The Funimation and Crunchyroll merge will be good for customers, as it will put everything in one place as opposed to paying multiple monthly subscriptions for anime.
