In the 10s Funimation is the biggest of the NA Anime publishers, with Aniplex US, Viz Media and Sentai Filmworks following behind. Before then, in the late 90s and throughout most of the 00s, they were one of the smaller companies behind Bandai Visual US, Geneon and ADV. So I want to know if there is a timeline, or anyone would be willing to make one, which chronicles DBZ to a few years ago, I'm interested in seeing how over time they went getting a few well known titles and mostly picking up lesser known titles, to getting most of the big releases. Everywhere else I've looked just shows a list of titles, not in order and a lot of them are acquired from defunct publishers.

So what I'm looking for is just year they acquired and dubbed, discounting titles such as Akira and Air Gear for example, for reasons stated above. If there happen to be lists for other publishers out there, please let me know.

Why not ask Funi directly?
They may have promotional material prepared setting out the story of the company. The big caveat though is that it will gloss over any negative periods and probably won't have the detail you are interested in.

I am a member of Both Boards FUN and CR and so I have a question would I be paying about $25.00 bucks
Since a FunI Premium is about $6.00 with tax and a CR Premium + is about 12.00 bucks + tax
I am Right? But I what is the difference between CR Premium membership and cr Premium +?

That sounds like a good idea, I assume they have a contact address just for information.

I asked but they said they have no such information.
