  • Do you think Funimation and Crunchyroll will be combine as one site, if so what do you think they will name the new site?
    VRV was a US-exclusive streaming service owned/run by Crunchyroll, and therefore it was also acquired by Funimation as part of their recent acquisition. When VRV originally launched in 2017, both Crunchyroll and Funimation were available on it, but in 2018, Funimation pulled out of the service and HiDive took its place. But HiDive is leaving the service at the end of this month, which means either Funimation is... - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago

  • Is Crunchyroll premium worth it?
    However, if you're in the United States where it's available, it's much better to subscribe to VRV instead. VRV gets you all of the features of Crunchyroll premium plus the bonus of HiDive's entire anime library, and it's only $2 more per month than Crunchyroll (while HiDive by itself normally costs $5 a month) so it's a fantastic deal. There's no good reason to subscribe to Crunchyroll by itself if VRV is an option. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Where is the best place to stream more or lesser known oldschool anime? 1999 and older.
    Nope. Crunchyroll and Funimation get most new shows but generally split the lot, both have sizable back catalogs as well though. HIDIVE has some as well (particularly older mecha series) and VRV combines the libraries of Crunchyroll and HIDIVE. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago

  • Help me choose a streaming service
    I have VRV ( which includes Crunchyroll and more...for pretty much the same cost. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Suggestions on sites to watch shows
    If you're in the United States, cancel Crunchyroll and upgrade to VRV immediately. It's basically the equivalent of adding HiDive's entire library (which has some pretty good exclusives and a lot of retro content) to Crunchyroll's for only $2 more a month, when HiDive by itself costs $5 a month. There's very little reason to subscribe to Crunchyroll or HiDive by themselves if VRV is an option. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Is there a good anime website is a website that bundles crunchyroll and Hidive and 3 other non-anime platforms with a paid subscription fee. But you can also watch the content for free with Ads. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
