All The New Anime Coming To Funimation And CrunchyRoll This Fall

There goes your free time.


The fall anime season is here, and there's a truly incredible amount of anime to take in between the still-separate services of Funimation and Crunchyroll. The services released their fall lineups this week, and the biggest problem you'll have is deciding what to watch first.

Funimation announced its acquisition of Crunchyroll back in December 2020, and officially completed it just last month. The merged organization has not yet announced how it plans to handle the two separate streaming services. Crunchyroll will see shows like Blade Runner: Black Lotus and Platinum End, while Funimation boasts titles like Ranking of Kings and The Vampire Dies in No Time.
