Funimation and Crunchyroll were the two biggest players in officially licensed English anime streaming. Earlier this year, Sony, which now owns both, decided to consolidate them under the Crunchyroll banner. Now while I generally prefer decentralization, this change worked out well for me since I was paying for both. Now I only subscribe to Crunchyroll and another service, HiDive. On the same day that I released my (late) review of anime in 2021, Crunchyroll absorbed a number of series that were previously exclusive to Funimation. My top two series of 2021, SSSS.Dynazenon and Fruits Basket: The Final, were among the new additions to Crunchyroll’s library. Also present was my biggest disappointment of 2021 (the first half was great, however), Horimiya. I strongly recommend Hyouka (2012) and Kaguya-sama: Love is War (2019, 2020, and 2022) as well – both of which appeared on my list of recommended anime from the previous decade.
