Food Wars and Several Huge Shows Are Leaving Crunchyroll Soon

Crunchyroll is a premium destination for all things anime, and its recent partnership with Funimation has only brought more content to users. However, a new announcement from the company has tempered that synergy. After all, a couple of dozen shows are going to be leaving Crunchyroll by the month's end, and some major hits are included in that list.

According to the update, these shows will all leave on March 31st. This means fans have a few days to catch up on the series they've been waiting to binge.

As for whether these shows will return to streaming, anime fans can only speculate for now. Most if not all of these exiting series are overseen by Sentai Filmworks, and many of them have large fandoms. It would be unwise to keep them from fans, so netizens are hoping these shows move to another service. Sentai Filmworks and HIDIVE recently joined forces as AMC Networks acquired the brands in January. It would make sense for HIDIVE to bolster its streaming base by becoming the exclusive source of Sentai Filmworks series. But for now, no official word has been given on that shift.
