How to change Crunchyroll membership?
There’s a 14-day free trial of Crunchyroll Premium available for new members.
VRV subscribers enjoy access to Crunchyroll, Mondo, and VRV Select for the time being but the service may be sundowned in the future post-Crunchyroll, Funimation merger.
When is Funimation and Crunchyroll merging?
For years the #1 question for anime fans was ‘Is Crunchyroll or Funimation better?’ For a while a split between the majority of Dubs being on Funimation and subtitled new material being on Crunchyroll made it an easy choice based on personal preference.
Soon the entirety of Funimation’s Dub library and beyond will be available on Crunchyroll’s service, PSYCHO-PASS being a big example of a former exclusive (that was only available on HULU otherwise). The merger into one anime streaming service to rule them all has already begun.
How to watch Dub on Crunchyroll
No longer do you have to ask yourself, ‘Does Crunchyroll have dubbed anime?’ Remember, the Funimation Dub/Sub split is over! Truce time.
Even the simulcasts for newer shows streaming on Crunchyroll like SPY x Family and Shikimori’s Not just a Cutie have English dubs (and many other languages) available mere days after their Japanese airings.
