Crunchyroll and Funimation have each revealed their winter lineups ahead of new releases and ongoing series coming out of Japan. 

Both streaming services now belong to Sony and Aniplex’s Funimation Global Group, and new additions are bringing their catalogs into closer parity than ever before. But with exclusives, timed or otherwise, you’ll still need two subscriptions to stay up on anime in the new year. 

While more series are likely to be announced in the coming weeks, here’s all the shows currently scheduled to release in winter 2022.


Several ongoing series will stay on into the next season. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc will continue releasing into the next season on Funimation and Crunchyroll alongside (surprise, surprise) Platinum End and Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon—The Second Act will finish their runs this winter on both platforms.

Blade Runner: Black Lotus and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations will continue streaming on Crunchyroll into the new year, alongside: Case Closed, Digimon Ghost Game, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, Kiyo in Kyoto: From the Maiko House, and Tropical Rouge Pretty Cure. And while Ranking of Kings will continue to get new episodes on Funimation, the first 10 episodes of the series are also making their way over to Crunchyroll.
