I do hope so. If there's one thing I hate about the Funi/CR partnership is that a lot of Funi animes available in CR aren't available outside of the US.

One problem with that is they would essentially be starting from scratch for their library outside of the regions their typical "English speaking countries" licenses cover. As such, they would face the same challenges in gathering an audience in other countries as a completely new service.

I also dare you to find a single Funimation title that was brought over that isn't available in Canada.

I wonder if they are going to keep the same voices or add more/different/new ones. that would be nice, I just hope they keep to the funimation line of dubbing animation the proper way and not slaughter it.

I'm at anime con right now and littlekuriboh was asked about Sony and made a good point saying he's hopeful because that might mean funimation will get better titles but that Sony might try to push for more famous actors. That I would not want.
