Anime Fall Season Update: Demon Slayer, Jujutsu Kaisen and More Titles Announced

Anime's Fall Season is here, and we have already seen specialist streamers Funimation and Crunchyroll announce their slate of brand new, continuing and returning shows. Their initial line-ups were only part of the story, however, as both sites have continued to announce even more titles joining their catalogues.

There are major questions to be asked about how exactly Funimation's recently finalised acquisition of Crunchyroll from WarnerMedia will impact both companies. In the short term, it appears to mean sharing of content, giving subscribers to either service added value. Funimation has announced that the recent hit series Jujutsu Kaisen (previously exclusive to Crunchyroll) has now joined their library. All 24 episodes of the first season are now available both subtitled and dubbed to users in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and  Latin America as well as select European territories via Funimation's Wakanim service. 

It's not only Funimation subscribers who are set to benefit- this isn't a one-way deal. Crunchyroll has announced that their subscribers can now watch the record-breaking feature Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba The Movie: Mugen Train in both subtitled and dubbed editions. The film will be available with English, Spanish and Portuguese dubs in English speaking countries and Spanish and Portuguese in Latin America. It will also be available in French and Russian speaking territories and the Nordics. Simultaneously, the dubbed versions of the original series, which has been retrospectively known as Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba: Unwavering Resolve Arc will be available on Crunchyroll for the first time.

Funimation have additionally announced further titles joining their Fall line-up:
