What is going on, exactly? HIDIVE is exiting its channel partner arrangement with VRV to focus on its owned and operated platforms. As a result, HIDIVE will no longer be available on VRV after September 30, 2021.Sep 8, 2021

On March 1, 2022, it was announced that VRV would be merged into Crunchyroll itself, alongside Funimation and Wakanim.

If you prefer subs, Crunchyroll might be better, but if you prefer to watch dubbed anime, go for Funimation. Since the selection of shows you can stream is different as well, check out Funimation to see if it has anything that you like that is not on Crunchyroll.Apr 1, 2021

When Sony acquired Funimation, it apparently also meant the end of the anime localizer's partnership with Crunchyroll and VRV. According to Polygon, Funimation president Gen Fukunaga sent a memo to employees announcing that the company is leaving those streaming platforms as a direct result of Sony's purchase.Oct 19, 2018

Crunchyroll announced that all of Funimation, Wakanim, and VRV content will move to Crunchyroll.Mar 1, 2022

If something in censored, it's because that's the version that CR has received to stream (and it's likely the version that is shown on Japanese TV as well). At the same time, CR never goes back to add the uncut version when it becomes available.
