Crunchyroll shared the news in a post on its official forums, saying:
” As many of you know, we have had an ongoing partnership with Funimation the last two years, sharing anime between users. Unfortunately, Funimation has decided to go their separate way, and this partnership will be winding down on Friday, November 9.”
In September of 2016, Funimation and Crunchyroll announced a partnership to share existing content across both streaming platforms, as well as new content—with Crunchyroll providing subbed simulcasts and Funimation handling English dubbed simulcasts.
As a result of the partnership ending, select Funimation titles will no longer be available on Crunchyroll and vice versa. The full list of affected anime is in the process of being finalized. Funimation-licensed titles, including My Hero Academia and Attack on Titan—which debuted during the partnership—as well simulcasts that are currently airing, will still be available to Crunchyroll users.
Additionally, Funimation content is leaving the streaming platform VRV—which is owned by Crunchyroll’s parent company, Ellation. As announced on VRV’s official blog, after November 9, Funimation will no longer be available as a standalone channel on VRV or as part of the platform’s premium subscription service.
However, VRV also announced it’s partnering with the relatively new anime streaming service HIDIVE. Titles including Made in Abyss and Bloom Into You will be available “in just a couple weeks,” with the rest of HIDIVE’s library “soon to follow.” Source :- @IGN
