Sony announces the merger of Crunchyroll, Funimation and Wakanim into a single service

Sony announced that starting today, anime streaming services Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Wakanim will be merged into one, which will retain the Crunchyroll name.

This operation will affect users in more than fifty-two countries, and will culminate with the integration into a platform that will offer series such as My Hero Academia, Tokyo Ghoul, Yu Yu Hakusho, Cowboy Bebop or Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation.

The possibility of Crunchyroll merging with Funimation had already entered Sony’s plans when the acquisition was first completed in August last year, in a deal valued at $1.175 million.

In the meantime, Sony Director Tony Vinciquerra said that “together with Crunchyroll and Funimation, we are committed to creating the ultimate anime experience for fans, providing a unique opportunity for our partners, publishers and creators always talent who will continue to bring their content to audiences around the world.”
