Nah. I think they have a pretty good mix of stuff. I'm watching several simulcasts there this season, and I don't think any of them are fan service harems.

(BTW, I've moved this over to the Anime forum)

After seeing thumbnails of anime tiddies & the occational panty/ass shot for their trailers posted their YouTube channel, yeah probably.
They don't seem to care anymore about their dubs now. Its all about the money now.


how can they not care about their dubs when they are actively doing Broadcast Dubs even?

Well going by exact numbers Funi has 62 titles listed as fan service and 23 listed as harem (most of which if not all are included in the 62 fan service listings). Currently they have 329 total series. So they have 23 fan service harems vs. 306 not fan service harem. That equals less than 10% of their catalog is harems and less than 20% equals fan service. So more than 80% up to 90% of their catalog isn't fan service nor harem. So I'd say the answer to your question is a definite no.

They buy what they think will sell. THAT is the bottom line. All other considerations should be secondary.

Their youtube channel has mastered the clickbait powers.

The only thing Funimation needs is more simulcast titles and they will in every way be better than Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll has fallen way behind Funimation in the last 2 years and it's really showing. Especially where it matters a lot to customers in customer service. I am a $4.99 member there and I ask a support question and it gets answered in less than 8 hours. Try that with Crunchyroll and see if you get an answer ever.


Unless I read this wrong, FUNimation is going to have 19 titles this season. I have also experienced better customer support at FUNimation.

Crunchyroll has plenty of fanservice shows, but then again, Crunchyroll has said a bunch of times that they go for every show each season. FUNimation in the past has seemed to be a bit more picky. Last season they allowed people on Twitter to guess what shows would be announced and for DxD they gave a hint of a picture of 2 melons... ...

Unfortunately, I'm a math nerd by heart I find numbers too friendly sometimes. I still find it funny how harems and fan service are treated like lepers to society despite them actually being such a small sector of the anime industry (at most 20-25% a season and that number even is very high for most seasons). It's pretty much the equivalent of "carnivores" claiming there are way too many "vegetarian-based" food products in the supermarkets.

I just don't believe in Funi after I saw this a long time ago. It takes something special to release something that bad.

Yeah spring cour had 5 at once and I was stunned. Usually it's about 5% of series are harems (roughly 1.5 per cour).

Sort of like the Wikipedia wangsting about porn performers. "Thousand upon thousands of people qualifying by this guideline." Actual # last I checked was about 1600 total articles under the three categories, which was lower than the number of American Football Middle Linebackers by 200 or so. Yet it was claimed that the porn guidelines were too loose because they had better coverage than athletes.

I guess if you don't like or respect something it seems omnipresent due to your offense.

...Harems are weird. The whole point of clean versions of harems airing is to get people to buy the uncensored DVD.

But the biggest harem question is... Why not just watch hentai.

Kinda, they really push their ecchi anime almost as much as their hype series (DBZ/Bebop)
