However, it's been widely reported that streaming services are struggling with increased competition in the market. Netflix's issues and its impact on animation have been well-documented, with the streaming giant actively pursuing cheaper subscription tiers and new markets.

In 2021, Sony completed its acquisition of Crunchyroll. After the acquisition, Sony began to merge Crunchyroll with Funimation, its previously acquired anime streaming service.


Recent anime seasons have seen HIDIVE, a likely competitor to Crunchyroll, acquiring more popular titles.
