Update: Crunchyroll adds 1st FUNimation dub to catalog

The ground-breaking partnership between Crunchyroll and FUNimation announced on September 11th was set in motion in earnest last week, as Crunchyroll made two FUNimation catalog titles available internationally on their streaming service. Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash and Psycho-Pass were both added after being confirmed as part of the partnership’s original reveal.

But now, another phase of the crossover has been rolled out, and the first FUNimation dub to appear on Crunchyroll has been revealed as none other than that infamous heart-wrencher, Your lie in April. Crunchyroll shared the territory availability details for all three shows as follows:

From A-1 Pictures, the studio behind Fairy Tail and Sword Art Online: When Haruhiro awakens, he’s in the dark surrounded by people who have no memory of where they came from or how they got there. As the darkness fades, a fantastic new world called “Grimgar” appears before them and their adventure begins—but first, they’ll have to choose their guild, class, and special abilities.

Territories: US, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark

In the future, thinking about a crime makes you guilty, and justice is dispensed from the barrel of a gun. Detectives work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, and Inspectors make sure their partners don’t cross the line. The equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a weapon that can tell when citizens are about to turn criminal.

Territories: US, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa

Kousei Arima was a genius pianist until his mother’s sudden death took away his ability to play. Each day was dull for Kousei. But, then he meets a violinist named Kaori Miyazono who has an eccentric playing style. His monotonous life was about to change forever.

Territories: North America, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland

Additionally, a select few of FUNimation’s summer simulcasts were only available to the US and Canada on Crunchyroll to begin with. But Crunchyrollers in the UK can now watch subtitled versions of D.Gray-man Hallow, First Love Monster and Puzzle & Dragons X.

    Good start to the partnership. Psycho-Pass was the best anime I watch in 2014. I need to check out You Lie in April, but I have to be in the right mood given how everyone describes it as heart wrenching.

      Psycho-Pass is pretty stunning, and Your Lie in April is definitely worth a watch when you’re in the right frame of mind. It’s eerie how much it just gets grief and anxiety with its visuals.
