Did Funimation get bought by Comcast? 'Cause only a cable company would tell customers that it's no big deal that they aren't receiving a service they paid for.

I was expecting there was a problem, which is why I decided to wait on taking advantage of the "two months for the price of one" offer they sent me via e-mail.

One would hope they would compensate those who who have paid for a subscription. That said, I suspect many are on the 14 day free trial at this point after they re-upped (except for any that got the same offer I did).

There is also the point that anyone that was subscribed before appear to have gotten most of September free, so those subscribed during that time have been pre-compensated after a fashion.

In some Funimation news, credit-card subscribers did NOT get a few months free. They eventually charged for all their missed months.

But in happier Funimation news, they have figured out how to get rid of the grey bar at the bottom of their new viewer, yeah!

And Texas thawed out enough that they got their simulcasts going finally by Tuesday and there was no repeat of the problem today. Hopefully they have figured out an offsite solution for their digital uploads.

That makes me glad that I was originally paying them via PayPal!

Although I'm back to viewing exclusively on the Roku, I'm glad to hear they got rid of the grey bar on their player.


In other news, I seem to have discovered a loophole in their Roku app. My Elite membership apparently expired sometime earlier this month, but I noticed my Roku app continuing to act as if I were an EVS member. I began to wonder if it only checked my status if I exited and re-entered the app, or perhaps only when I logged out or the login expired.

As an experiment, I have foregone watching anything else on my Roku and left it within the Funimation app, and made an attempt to watch something at least once per day to keep the login active. It has been at least a week and half now, and it is still giving me access to premium content. While I am curious how long this could go on, at some point either my need to watch other content on my Roku will win out, or I'll accidentally hit the back button one time too many.

Might be cheaper to get a second Roku box!

You could always just buy another Roku I just recently bought a LT for my mom for less than the price of a Chromecast.

I actually have a second one.

I recently upgraded from my older Roku XD|S to a Roku 3, but still have the older unit. I haven't decided whether to sell it or not, as it is perhaps the only Roku that has the option of component video output.

I already have a prepaid one year EVS membership I purchased on Cyber Monday, so I'm not too concerned about losing the EVS access. I'm primarily just curious about how long this could go on.


Speaking of Roku deals, some sites have recently been offering a refurbished Roku 3 for only $70 shipped. That facility for plugging earbuds or headphones into the remote is really great for late night watching if you have other people in the house.

IS 2 was probably the most hated Fall anime out of Japan, though look at those sales! Japan never disappoints! Though you can thank the doujin for the sales (Yes this is why they got a HUGE amount of sales) Practically they want a Season 3 so more doujin and shiz can be made. I really can't see any other point why IS 2 sold so much, it was the most utter crap ive ever watched in my whole anime life.

Though apparently its a super popular Otaku show in Japan, I want to know the reason why its so popular Doujin is one of them but that cant be all.

I suppose that means we can look forward to a third series with even more fan service!

I haven't watched the second series yet, but from what I saw of screen caps and such, I gather they cranked up the fan service dial further compared to the original series.

Non Non Biyori
Freezing Vibration
Not sure if those were troll transliterations or not... the extra Non makes it look like a troll but come on, how can you not LOVE Fleezing Vaibration? That sounds better than the original!

IS2 volume 2 dropped quite a bit. The first season averaged 30K so it had already dropped even from the 26K first volume and the series average will be much lower. TheAncientOne, I would actually recommend skipping the second season, pretend it didn't happen but... perhaps you should watch it and judge for yourself.

Yea, just copied and pasted this straight from facebook didn't even notice these misspelled names xD! If IS 3 happens, then.. kill me now! Infinite Stratos should just die out, honestly if ichika wasnt in this anime then I would probably enjoy it, but his a dumb ass, with no brain. :(

Infinite Stratos 2 had practically no mecha in it. If it didn't have Ichika either it would be Sakura Trick!!!
