I get that it takes time to upload the Eng. dubs of some of the shows listed above. However, one would think that the Eng. dubs of the popular "Re:Zero" and the perhaps-less-as-popular "Twin Star Exorcists" would have been uploaded by now. Concerning their respective Eng. dubs, I have seen the first vol. worth of epi. from "Re:Zero" and the 1st 2 vol. worth of epi. of "Twin Star Exorcists". Yes, I know I could aways buy the remaining vol. of each series on Amazon Prime. However, not being employed means I would rather see them on CR.

This is apparently all there will be about that...

animenewsnetwork.com news article


Update: ANN reached out to Crunchyroll for comment about the seasons returning to the service, but the company did not respond by press time. Crunchyroll later confirmed with ANN that the anime had been re-added to its library, but stated it would provide "no other comment as of now."

I'm quite sure if the partnership was fully back on, there would be an announcement, as that would be big. Only three major shows first seasons have come back though. CR probably had to pay an unreasonable amount to have them as loss leaders due to their popularity.

What we are most likely seeing here is the residuals of contract terms that were in place during the partnership, such as Funi being the subcontractor to produce certain dubs and to release shows on disk for Crunchyroll, as those processes take a long time in planning and execution, so they couldn't just get cut off in the middle.

Maybe there is some realization of the financial advantages of sharing this functionality, that would be great... but more probably it was just an extension of work already in progress, and once that all finds its way to the end, it will be done unless Sony and/or AT&T release CR and Funi to run on their own again, which frankly, I don't see happening. Next season will be more enlightening, I think.

This was bound to happen. It feels so right.
