The Right Stuf Store will become one with the Crunchyroll Store on October 10, as revealed in the email sent to Crunchyroll “partners.” Crunchyroll acquired The Right Stuf store last August: full integration was always the plan. As a reminder, Crunchyroll merged the Funimation and Wakanim brands in March 2022 – after being acquired by Sony-owned Funimation.
Users can still purchase items listed on The Right Stuf store but at the Crunchyroll store. The annual holiday sale will also be renamed the Crunchyroll holiday sale, scheduled to take place later this year. Crunchyroll promises to pursue exclusive partnerships that will benefit fans and those who purchase products listed on their store.
Crunchyroll is a streaming service that originally started as a pirated streaming website. After an extensive rebrand, they have become one of the leading legal anime content streaming services in the West. In August 2021, Funimation acquired Crunchyroll after a lengthy legal process. The $1.175 billion deal was first announced in December 2020. Before the acquisition, Funimation merged with AnimeLab. Wakanim and Crunchyroll’s VRV are also involved in the deal.
Due to Crunchyroll’s branding, Funimation, Wakanim and VRV eventually merged with it and united under one brand. Today, Crunchyroll not only has a successful anime streaming platform and the aforementioned store, but also a VTuber and a successful anime awards program.
Anime Corner has reached out to Crunchyroll for comment.
UPDATE: Crunchyroll confirmed the news in a press release, stating that starting October 10, the Crunchyroll Store will offer fans a collection of over 30,000 products, featuring over 4,000 titles. including comics, home videos and stuffed animals.
