User Reviews for Funimation

UI and problems with watching certain shows

The user interface is poor at best and completely broken at worst. I have issues with speed and connection even using a LAN connection and good internet speeds. This problem makes about half their library unavailable at any time and doesn't have any rhyme or reason for their failures. The download is slow and updates seem non-existent. After they bought VRV I hoped they would build off of VRV's perfectly good app and brand it funimation, but they took it the other way. New series they've recently gotten the rights to that are touted as great additions; I would agree they are great additions to their library, but none of them are actually available for me to watch, it just says come back and try later. Broken system without hope for anything better since there is now a semi-monopoly on the anime streaming game by Sony and their terrible app. If there was ANY alternative to Funimation's app on phone/tv/computer I would even pay them an extra couple dollars to fix their problems, but I wouldn't trust Sony at their word for all the (insert valuable item here) with respect to fixing problems. Funimation has sucked for years, now it is getting much, much worse. I expect not to be able to watch any of their new acquisitions this year, maybe they'll fix it by 2023?

Second review

My first review, over a year ago, was one of the most strict and brutal reviews I’ve ever written. The app was truly bad and the overall service sub par. After the update and reformatting, things have been over 9,000 times better. It’s much easier to use, the layout is more friendly. And they probably added more servers. Idk. Seems faster. Thankfully they decided to change it for their customers. 3 things though. 1 It would have been nice to know that there was an update on the way. Seeing as how it might have taken awhile to make. Knowing it ahead of time would have made being patient easier. 2 They say you can stream multiple devices, but if that’s true why not add multiple profiles so that my wife can watch her stuff and I can watch mine. If we are on the same show at different times it’s makes it difficult to pick up where I left easy. I’m feel that it wouldn’t be terribly hard to do that but I don’t format or program, so idk 3 if you are watching a show and want to continue where you left off I wish that clicking the show would take you to the details instead of playing. It sounds counter intuitive but that’s because when someone else is watching. The same show and I want to check what episode is up I gotta go find the show.

Many pros and cons

Okay, I would like to start off that this app is amazing, there’s many pros but there’s a few cons. One, the ads. Funimation, every single episode I watch it over-boards the amount of ads. Like when I start an episode it gives me 6-7 ads. When I’m getting to like the middle of an episode ANOTHER 7 ads. When I skip to a part, MORE ADS. Now, I get that there’s premium and all that but like can you reduce the amount of ads?? Like just give two ads or one, don’t give an excessive amount of ads. 1 or 2 ads is fine. Premium from what I’ve heard isn’t as good either. I get that you’re trying to boost your business but believe me when I say this, lesser the ads the more positive reviews you’ll get. No. 2, more language. Now, I get that you need premium to unlock certain subs and dubs, but like why is that an option? It’s as if you’re trying to rob a bunch of people and the subtitles aren’t even accurate to what the characters are saying in the sub version of the anime. 3, adding more anime. Funimation, you should atleast add more anime that has been released and make it sub for like a least amount of time and then add a 2nd option to where u can watch it in English. Alright that’s the end of the review. If your looking to download it be prepared for the amount of ads you’re about to see.

Good but needs some improvements

I pay $5.99 a month for this app so I can any of the shows available to me without ads and so I can cast to my tv. The anime selection is better than Netflix and I don’t have to create a whole separate profile so my algorithm on Netflix doesn’t get ruined. However recently, I’ve noticed that while watching it’ll allow me to watch one or two episodes and then halfway through the second or third episode, it’ll boot me out of the app and force me to start the episode all over again. Since I cast this to the tv, I have to use wifi and I know my connection is good so it can’t be that and I don’t have this problem with any other app. If I’m going to be paying a monthly fee to use this app, I really ought to be able to ACTUALLY use it. Very frustrating to have to constantly reboot the app.Edit: this bug has been fixed however a new one has popped up! Now I can’t cast in Japanese!! Like many anime fans, I strongly prefer watching in Japanese with English subtitles as English dub is super cringey. But now the app doesn’t let me do that while casting to Google Crome cast. Please for the love of all that is good in the world, FIX THIS BUG!!

Great app to watch anime on but some things

So I got this app last year and I decided to look at the reviews and rate the app and people were saying that there are adds but I don’t get any. I think this app should have a better rating but there are some things. 1. Some animes aren’t finished on Funimation and some are premium but it said that with premium you could watch new episodes after being broadcasted in Japan. So I didn’t get premium just for that. 2. I love the app (ik I keep saying that) but I feel that you could put more animes on this app so it would be better. Also I’m a kid writing this review but pls put why the age ratings are what they are because I was watching “The future diary” and it showed breast naked and the age rating was 14. I watched anime on Netflix before and when the shows said nudity I would search up why and watch it if it was ok. I’ve watched aot and kakegurui before but those are just some examples of the animes I’ve watched that said they had nudity. Usually the nudity would be just like butts or partly covered breast. I know it’s not that big of a deal but it upsets some people like kids like me and parents or just anybody. Those are some things that i think you could do for this app and the people that use this app. But all summed up I think this is a good app. Thank you for reading this rating/review :)

It’s not that bad of an app but…

I enjoy Funimation and it’s wide variety of anime although there are a few problems. First of all I don’t see a casting button on the new version of the app. I remember seeing one previously so it’s quite annoying that I can’t find it anymore in the newer version of the app. Another problem is the ads. I understand you need to make money but the ads don’t stay consistent. Whenever you try to watch an anime normally you get one ad before you begin to watch although sometimes you’ll get all five. And although it’s bothersome to sit through five ads that is not really a problem for me. One of my biggest problems is when I’m trying to watch this one dubbed anime (My Roommate is a Cat) the subtitles are turned on. I’m not a big fan of unnecessary subtitles so I turn them off but then I have to watch another five ads after turning off the subtitles. And every single time I stop watching and go back to that anime the subtitles are turned back on. I hope you can fix this issue or make the ads less. Because it is very bothersome to sit through five ads back to back just because I don’t want to watch an anime that I can understand the language of (English) with subtitles that the app puts on the show manually. Thank you for reading this and have a lovely day/night.

Terrible customer service

Funimation is a decent app for a decent price. It allows you to watch some anime, with some convenience, and is really cheap. However, if your looking for quality content backed by a company that actually cares, then look elsewhere. Upon getting my account hacked, and email/password switched, Funimation had zero customer support in locating my account. They failed to find my account via email address, account name, credit card, or any other means that would normally locate ones account. They instead shifted all responsibilities and to blame a third-party payment system, insisting that they could only help if you used a credit card instead of the Apple payments. As petty as it may seem, I was robbed out of my billing cycle payments, forced to create a new account, loosing all data and history associated with Funimation. It isn’t worth investing hours of your life into an app that cannot securely safeguard your account, nor keep records on file regarding your account details, and insisting that you should start a new subscription and refresh all your account preferences including the lists of content you intended to watch.After reattempting this service, I found I was getting ads on multiple episodes for multiple different shows. Upon contacting customer support, they simply said they were looking into the issue and never came up with a solution.

This truly hurts to write

I love Funimation, and I don’t just mean this app. This app has possibly the best selection of anime outside of finding it illegally online, but it doesn’t matter how great or how many shows you have if you can’t watch them. I always just assumed that I (along with every other person writing bad reviews) just had crappy phones or bad WiFi, but I now have the iPhone 13 with the fastest internet speeds you can get, due to working from home, and I STILL get MAYBE 3 episodes into something before this app refuses to play the next episode. The crazy part is, I’ll go try to play another show and that will play no problem and I’ll try to go back to the episode that I was trying to watch in the first place and it still won’t load. Whenever I read reviews, I always think to myself that the people writing them had ONE bad experience and now they just want to complain, but I have been paying for Funimation for YEARS now, and I can honestly say, this is an everyday thing. Every time this app has an update, I get so excited thinking that just maybe, this is the one that fixes the streaming issues, but it still hasn’t happened. Please Funimation, I am begging you while literally throwing money at you every month, PLEASE fix these streaming issues.. I’m not going to continue paying for something I can’t use, that’s why I left my ex.

Too many dubs

The selection of shows is pretty good, but the Japanese versions are largely unavailable. I’m not hating on people who want the dubbed versions, but hearing the original Japanese voice actors is my personal preference. All the shows I love and wanted to rewatch are English only. You would think it would be the other way around. It’s definitely taken away a significant number of choices from the shows I would watch which is maddening because this is one of the only ways to watch anime in my region. This feels like a trap because this company knows it doesn’t have to be good to its users because they’re one of the only ones who provides this service. Feels like a rort paying for premium.On top of that are the usual ux/ui complaints. Hard to navigate to a genre or a show’s info page (i.e. you see the tile for the most recent episode of a series you are interested in starting but there’s no way to see the show details so you cannot pick the first episode in the series, forcing you to hunt down their search function and typing out the entire show title unless you want to scroll through the irrelevant results that come up in the search). You have to scroll through a lackluster home page to find the filtering function and loading each show’s info has a 30% chance of a load error. There’s no way to report missing subtitles or to request shows (like when this was animelab).

Ad watching simulator. Broken app.

TL;DR AVOID THIS APP IF POSSIBLE. It has way too many errors that make you to be unable to watch the shows you want to watch while spamming you with ads. I have been using this app for less than a week and I have already encountered continual errors. First of all, there are a lot of ads if you do not have a subscription. This would be perfectly fine if it wasn’t for the fact that the app frequently gets stuck while loading the ads, forcing you to reset the app and watch the ads all over again. It is not a WiFi or connection issue. If the ads load properly, you watch about 6.5 minutes to 8 minutes of ads per episode, but if the apps don’t load properly you could end up watching up to 15.5 minutes of ads or possibly even more. That’s right. If the app malfunctions hard enough, you could spend more time watching ads than the episodes themselves. Also, I have gotten errors that have prevented me from watching anything in the app at all. One type of error has seemed to happen for no reason. Other times, I have gotten an error message saying that I can only watch on one device with a free account even though I had logged out on the other device over 30 minutes ago. Terrible, horrible app. I will try to find other methods of watching the shows I want to watch.
