Funimation makes the best dubs and puts the most efforts into their translations from scripts to voice acting to voice direction. Notice how on all their shows they have translated OP and ED? Crunchy says they don't do that for legal reasons (because the artist holds the rights to the translations of their songs so they need to be approved) yet Funi always has those even on simulcasts. They also have the best home releases from price to content. Other companies like Sentai or Aniplex cannot compare to the effort and quality Funi puts in. Sure, their website and streaming isn't as good as Crunchy, but they don't specialize in that like Crunchy does.


Agreed. Well said.

Because their dubs are great, their business practices are fair, and they don't gouge the consumer?

Because they're helping the anime industry from being completely irrelevant over here in America?

People need to stop hating on Funimation! They provide great dubs such as FMAB and Black Lagoon, care about what they produce unlike the bastards at 4Kids, and also stream any material that they own similar to what crunchyroll is doing right now! Without Funimation I would have never gotten into anime, and I bet the same thing's true for half of the people on this website.

Because, as a previous user said, Funimation tends to get what Crunchyroll does not. The two services are complementary to each other. That, and Funimation puts its anime on Hulu, too, so you do not have to stream from the Funi site if you do not wish to.

If only Funi's site coding didn't cause nerdrage on my end. =-=

But that aside, I kinda died a little on the inside when I saw this topic. Funimation produces some of the best dubs I've heard to date. Seriously, Yu Yu Hakusho's and Black Cat's dubs are fantastic and far better than the originals in my opinion.

Really makes me wish they had been the ones to dub Sailor Moon. Talk about a dubbing train-wreck, sheesh.

The problem I have with Funi is that the quality of their translations tends to be all over the place. I've seen a fair number of good translations from them, and some really horrible ones, like the index/railgun series.

I would say the only con to FUNimation is that they aren't on Crunchyroll, but even that is starting to change.

Because Funimation has, perhaps more than any other company, helped keep anime in the public eye in America. Shows like Dragonball and One Piece are often people's first glimpse into anime and as much as people may whine about dubs if they weren't dubbed they wouldn't be nearly as popular in the US as they are now.
