For most of last year I was a Funimation subscriber and the two biggest problems that the site has is that the video player is faulty and their website has constant issues (users aren't able to login. it is too slow, etc....). Content wise funimation has a good selection ( I would say almost on par with CR). I would say that funimation subscription is worth it (given their content) but it would depend on whether or not you can tolerate the problems with their site.

Personally I plan on subscribing to Funimation again sometime in the near future.

I have pay for both CR and Funi. Honestly I would just get the free month subscription to Funi then be done with it. The only reason I'm paying is because they have HD Psycho Pass.

i used the free trial that lasts for 2 weeks or whatever and i stopped using it after the first day. the player kept freezing and all this other crap i just found the website annoying to use despite the large selection. honestly i wouldn't recommend using it. stick with CR!

The choice is yours my friend! Try out Funimation's free trial and go from there.

I have Hulu, Netflix, CR, and Funimation and by far Funimation is my least favorite. Site is broken, to watch videos on Ipad without ads cost 9.99 for the app. They have a free app but you get ad banners. Its just shady. This site is great and has a much better player <3

(O^O) That's the exact same thing I do! However, once Psycho Pass is gone, I'm gone from Funi....

Don't do it. I had a Funimation subscription before i found out about CR. The player SUCKS and so does the site,to even browse through one page would take me forever. If Hulu doesn't stream to Canada try hiding your IP address, I do it all the time because of a lot US sites don't work in Germany

Liked: title range and availability

Disliked: player not working, constantly logging me off, speed of website and apps pretty slow

I pick it up every now or then for a couple months and watch a couple shows and then cancel it again when their service starts to annoy me enough

I've seen much of the older selection, and the animes of the season have given me a seemingly sub-par impression save a few. Aside from the current selection, I love crunchyroll so canceling it would be a tough thing to do for me. It just feel like I haven't been getting my anime fix in the last month.

Give me multiple reasons as to why I should keep my Crunchyroll subscription.


why not get both.... and order TAN while you at it... then you will have a whole barrage of anime to watch.. I do

Besides CR and FUNIMATION I have TAN too.I think Funimation has the more hardcore action violent, sci-fi type of anime.Myself have watched 8 of the 10 fall simulcasts on there.I just started watching Jormungand which I like.

Some shows are for EVS subscriptions only and the above. items.

If you like dubs then Funi has a lot.

No matter what I hate ads so I have 3 subs.

At least Funi lets you watch some of the anime unlike TAN where only the first EP or two you can watch.

the reason why I have roku..... put all this crap on there...Neon alley really bites dust.... but on my roku I have Netflix, hulu, CR, Funimation. all I need right

on roku mostly everything is in HD..... I don't have to bust my neck looking at a computer screen to watch Anime. Funimation is a lot faster on roku. you do have a choice for HD or not when watching it.... it only takes three secs to hit the home button and switch to Cr, Netfilx, or hulu... Im loving it
