Funi actually had a YouTube channel at one time where you could watch their content, but I think the episodes were all taken down and put on their crappy site, or ultimately, they left only the dubbed episodes up on YT, which are useless to me. I like a few early Funi dubs... but the most recent ones... loll, no. If they wanted to make a site, they could have at least make a decent one, invested some effort into it, chosen a video player that wasn't buggy as hell, and used servers that wouldn't go down on a moment's notice, but NO. Gotta get that $$.


It's a really bad laid out site to try and find anime as well.

Also Aaron Dismuke needs to be used less as a VA. Unlike Billy West who could voice a bunch of people https://youtu.be/rckKbQeVeAI
Aaron voices happy Aaron or bored Aaron and that's it.

They have one mod over there that has totally ruined the forums, between that and horrible streaming/website software you aren't missing much.

The site was under maintenance. Something even CR does. Pardon me, FUNI video player is shit? Sorry that a weird way to spell CR flash player.You guys have short term memory. But must I remind everybody of the 3 months CR was a nightmare to use? Video player crashing, worst day to give maintenance. Support doesn't not even exist here. Video flash player making it a nightmare to watch shit. Especially during the day.

Gennerally speaking from personal exxperience their mods are not that bad. Yes they tend to crack down on bullshit like that whole "if your friend was...." Crap the mods here let go or that whole thinly veiled sexist flame war that was boys why..... And girls why..... Bullshit. But they do have a brand name to protect and overall i am glad theyy shut that bullshit down.

What you think is toxic manny of us who have been online for deccades view as trash collection. But that is the beauty of forrums, we all can behave civaly and have rational disscutions while the mods sweep away the litter that gets in the way.

Unfortunately, those moderators, by the way you describe them, sound more like dictators. They are not admins, and they should not be flashing their IPD badges wherever they please. Moderators are selected to make sure that people in a community follow the rules and keep the environment entertaining for everybody. They are not there to delete stuff they simply don't like.

The mods here have not deleted those posts so i find it hard to relate to your angst. Exactly where has those old farts that you hate actually deleted a single dumb ass "if you" thread you kids find soooo snarkily halliarious? Personally i don't get the joke. I just see it as so much spam. But then again if you have nothing original to say i guess spam that was spammed before is the closest you can come to a joke lmao. Not even original as we saw this spam fest before and it was not funny way back then

Exactly. It's part of the reason why I like the mods here. As I have said, moderators are there to be in the background making sure that everybody is having a good time. They are not supposed to be making their presence known by deleting everything they don't like.

There were like what? 5-6 people posting negatively about the friend threads when each one had like what, 2-4 pages worth of responses on them? And it lasted for like what? 2 hours the first day and then slowly faded away over the next two days? It was brought back for 2 days like a month later? Just because you're too busy moaning about the friend threads doesn't mean that there weren't others having fun with the variation from the normality of the more serious threads.

Sure there may have been more people who lurk the forums that might not have found it as interesting, since you know it was a participation thread, but guess what; if there were any, they didn't speak up. Idk about you, but I and plenty of others had fun with the friend threads while they were a thing. So, all I can say is, sucks.

Again i think you missunderstand me. I think it was completely stupid spam but the mods here let that spamfest go despite the fact that it flooded legitimate substansive discussions off the main page. In the end i applaud crunchyrolls mods for their discression in not swatting all that spam and allowing the members to spam away anny substinative discussion about the real issues facing the world like donald trump becoming the next president of the united states or north korea's sucessufull detonation of a hydrrogen bomb . after all "if your friend was...." Is just so much important than global nucular war, or the mass sexual assualt of women in calloghn germany on new years eve.

I'd love to be able to use their site but I can't get videos to stream on there, or on any of the apps. I've tried here and there for months and it hasn't worked in ages for me. A year ago I never had issues, then I started having them sometimes and now I can't get through three minutes of an episode without it freezing on me.

I'm always reluctant to use funimation and only do out of necessity... There site is crap, there app is crap, their video player is horrendous... Really doesn't seem like they care as long as they are getting paid. I mean, their app only has like the first 2 episodes of any anime. Not to mention a number of the sites shows only let you watch the first 2-4 episodes without a subscription... SIgh...

I don't use their forums but even their video player is broken atm...

Hell you're almost better off being a non-sub on their site since you use Hulu's video player. You have to deal with some ads but it's better than dealing with their crap video player. Might as well say screw funimation and just watch straight off of Hulu
