I can not believe this move that Sony just made. They clearly are telling the world that they will be the card holders for Anime. Reported by Anime News Network
Sony today bought a huge stake in Funimation to be the majority shareholder of the company. Apparently, Sony is keeping CEO Gen Fukunaga on board and as a minority holder. So, what does this mean for the partnership between Funimation and Crunchyroll? Sony is the competition if they continue with Crackle yet also retain Funimation.
Maybe this is just the last chess piece before Sony makes a move on Crunchyroll. They seem to be the only one standing in their way to complete domination of streaming and distributing anime across the world. It absolutely would make sense when every year Crunchyroll doubles in size and content.
