Why are FUNimation dubs considered bad

VRV and Funimation split up, HIDIVE brings new content

If you're like me, when your PlayStation 4 isn't used to play Japanese RPGs and bizarre horror games, then it's used to watch anime on Crunchyroll or VRV. Unfortunately, there is some bad news for VRV subscribers, but it's not all bad.

VRV, a multi-service subscription app from anime giant Crunchyroll, announced today that the partnership between Crunchyroll and Funimation is coming to an end. While some simultaneously licensed simulcast anime series will continue to run on Crunchyroll, Funimation's content is that previously existed on its own channel, including some English dubbed shows like the popular oneMy hero academiaandDragonball Super, will leave VRV on November 9, 2018.

While it is unfortunate that the service, which spans multiple channels including non-anime content, is losing a full channel, it is being replaced with something new. In addition to current VRV subscribers who will receive $ 20 credit on their accounts, it has also been announced that HIDIVE will be joining VRV. This is another anime streaming service that includes both sub and dub versions of various shows, with the dubs provided by Sentai Filmworks. Shows belong on HIDIVEPatlabor,Legend of the Galactic Heroes,K-On, andCorpse Party.

VRV is an app available on various platforms including PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Content can be viewed for free with advertisements. A subscription for $ 9.99 per month opens up the full range of content without ads. It's worth noting that Funimation was acquired by Sony last year and this move appears to be part of a move by Sony to invest more in Funimation as a brand.
