Crunchyroll recently announced that the original Trigun anime would be joining its streaming catalog, along with other classic Funimation anime titles such as Shinichiro Watanabe's Space Dandy.
In March, Funimation's streaming service encouraged its subscribers to move over to Crunchyroll, informing them that it would no longer be adding new titles to its platform. Crunchyroll was a competitor for the service until Sony, which purchased Funimation in 2017, also bought up Crunchyroll in 2021. Sony is consolidating its anime catalog under a single brand, meaning that physical releases from Funimation will now also carry the Crunchyroll branding.
