Ad spam 3/5
If you were to watch one anime, you have to watch one ad, a long intro, and then when that’s done you have to watch 5 more ads all at once. WOW! And keep in mind you have to watch 10 more! Great!
Improve downloading speed 3/5
It takes hours if not a day to download an episode. I have pretty good internet and Netflix takes maybe 30 seconds for an episode.
This app is unusable! 1/5
This app still needs an update! Uninstalled and Re-installed multiples times and it still crashes trying to play any episode. Worked for a day after iOS 15 update and now I can’t watch a single video. Latest iPadOS update did not resolve,
Vivy is only showing portugese subtitles 1/5
Can’t watch vivy b/c only portugese subtitles are available
Don’t like the UI 1/5
By Joseph Aw.
U.I. Is not intuitive and search function does not even work on most my devices.
Pirating apps are better than this 1/5
I got Funimation bc I didn’t want to keep watching going on sketchy websites for the animes that weren’t on Crunchyroll however this app was so broken from moment I first opened it that it honestly made me wanna go back to the websites. Nothing in this app works and it is so aggravating. All of the shows I want to watch are for some reason unavailable and the way everything is organized is so bad. And the website wasn’t much better either. No wonder nobody uses this and prefers pirating their animes.
Please support more countries 1/5
I am living in iraq currently and it won’t let me get into the app because i am not in the territory supported by animation, so please add more countries in your list, especially Saudi Arabia and Kuwait…
All my anime’s are subbed I can’t watch in dub 1/5
Hey Funimation can you fix it where all the anime’s are subbed and dubbed and not subbed only plus I’m trying to watch one piece and it suddenly changed so Funimation can you please fix your app and I’m going to another app that has dubbed versions of one piece.
app is very glitchy 1/5
Some shows refuse to load in app.
Some shows will load, and work just fine, and others load but get strange bugs when casting to chromecast. Ie. Seraph of the End had two overlapping english subtitles, and episode 7 suddenly became english only despite episode 6 playing in the selected language just fine.
Not awful, not great, quite annoying 2/5
It’s not the worst app, but problems with videos going blank, getting signed out, ect. But the thing that really pisses me off is when these people make you go to the website to change simple little setting. Like yeah I know you want more clicks for your website, but I don’t care.
Too many ads 1/5
I’ve been trying to watch anime but there are so many ads that I don’t even feel like watching them anymore but, there’s a lot of anime on here but I don’t watch them because I don’t feel like watching a whole army of ads before it starts, after the intro ends, in the middle, near the end, and after the anime ends.
The developers of this app should be ashamed 1/5
You’d think that an app that has only one single purpose would be able to fulfill that purpose. You’d be way off the mark when it comes to this app. Nothing loads. You might say that “oh your internet must be bad” but with this same internet I can load the same show at the same quality from gogoanime, and that’s free. There is no point in downloading this app. The developers of this app were not qualified for their position and it shows.
Why am I paying monthly for this subscription if there’s going to be ads? On top of the app sucking I find it to be unacceptable.
honestly the worst streaming app experience i’ve ever had, they need to fix a lot stating with the servers
Omg fix this app! 1/5
Please please please fix this app. You can’t search for anything! I’m on iPhone 12 Pro Max and if you go to search and tap the box to type… NOTHING! Literally nothing happens when you tap the box to search. No keyboard no letter no nothing. Anime is at an all time high and one of the leaders in anime in America has an app that doesn’t even let you search! 🤷🏻♂️
Garbage app please stay away 1/5
By Best fruit ever!!
Unless you plan on paying then don’t even bother with funimation. Ceo of ad spams. Chicken bone skin tone post Malone Sylvester Stallone creators. Some nut nellys fr. The ads don’t load so it resets the app and makes you watch another 4-5 unskippable 30 second ads so you can spend more time watching the same 3 ads over and over than the episodes themself
CASH GRAB 1/5
Starting with the positive, they have every episode of dragon ball from when Goku was a tiny boy to Goku fighting Golden Frieza... aside from that, All these ppl care about is your money here. Almost EVERYTHING requires you subscribe. YOU CANT EVEN WATCH SUBBED WITHOUT SUBSCRIBING!! You can’t watch a full season of ANY anime without needing to subscribe, at least not the ones I’ve tried. There are better anime apps, only tried this out bc the app I love to use isn’t on my new tv. Safe to say Among the popular anime apps, this app is the worst of the worst, lowest of the low, greediest, bottom feeder of them all. Devs, please get a job outside of this, then come back to this app and do it right. Thank you
UPDATE: been on premium for awhile, love the extensive library, SERVICE IS AWFUL, dragon ball literally buffers ALWAYS. Can’t watch a full episode without buffering. ON ANY QUALITY EVEN THE LOWEST like wow… I love the selection but I’m ready to just buy the dvds of the anime’s I want to watch. This is awful. Wish they’d fix it but I’m not hopeful. Gonna lose me very soon. I literally get logged out after buffering too
To many ads and bugs 2/5
I like to watch anime on this app but I can’t watch it without it lagging or having three ads every few minutes pop up and it’s getting really annoying and also PLEASE ADD MEXICO AS A RELIGION
Good Anime but needs A LOT of work 2/5
I payed for a 1 year subscription, not really worth it but they do have some exclusives. But that’s not really the problem, the problem is the app itself. It is very bad, it takes a while for stuff to load and on top of that for weekly shows you just have to check to see if it even comes out on the right day. Even though they updated the user interface it still runs like bad and looks like bad. They make something so simple so complicated for no good reason. After my year subscription is over I am canceling it because they don’t really care to fix it so I should I care to support it. I know one person is not going to brake the Wallet but that is one persons opinion so take it with a grain of salt.
Not Good GUI 1/5
Instead fixing he issues it had from its predecessor it just added more problems. You make it harder to see new Dub episodes and to find. Takes forever to load and it has a bad GUI overall. If you real want to get more people to watch anime, you are not doing a good job at attracting other people. :/
Horrible app 2/5
Good selection of shows, but…the app is horrible… page of the show does not load and hardly any good search/filter functions
Search problem/when the app wants to work 3/5
It’s a great app (most of the time) but it would be even better if I could actually search for the show I want to watch! The search bar comes up but I can’t search anything! You need to fix this problem or I’m going to unsubscribe!!!
Attention and improvements to the app required. 3/5
It’s not fair that i have paid for something that doesn’t work,first oso all the apps simultaneously freeze itself, so simple as a feature like subtitles, they don’t are syncing with the video, hoping that would be better if i tried to download and watch later, i have seen no improvement, i would prefer to watch the anime that i like with Japanese audio and English sub however I’m forced to stream in English, please I’m demanding some updates to accomplish these issues.
By jakakwmw wnna
I’m just here to complain about the fact the browsing feature isn’t working !! I’m trying to search up anime’s manually but it isn’t allowing as I’d like it to! Please like this, I truly like funimation as it has older animes and whatnot. I would like it to work properly on my device—I just bought a subscription too and if it doesn’t get itself together i’m switching over to crunchyroll 🤦🏾♀️
Watched episodes 3/5
It doesn’t matter how many updates you give to the app, I still end up an episode and when I want to continue watching the last video is still like I haven’t watched it
It just doesn’t work 1/5
I have 1 GIG internet and every time I try, emphasis on try, to watch an episode it stops playing and I have to close the app to get it to continue playing. It’s trash, don’t get it.
Fix the search bar 2/5
By Ronin Panda
Search Bar Does Not Work 1/5
I had an iPhone 11 Pro Max that I had been using the App on. No matter how many times I tried to use the search feature, it would never work. I force closed the app, uninstalled the app and reinstalled the app. No success. I finally upgrade to an iPhone 13 Pro Max, and started with a clean install. The same issue occurs. I have made sure I’m signed in, and everything is up to date. It’s very annoying not having the search function work. You recently updated this App to work with iOS 15, but the search function still does not work.
My opinion 3/5
Funimation could be so much better, but they seem not to care. Some shows won’t load for no reason at all. The should also improve the interface!! No wonder why this app rating is so low.
Awful App 2/5
I love having a selection of shows I love and I’m currently subscribed. But the app is terrible. Whenever I try to play a show the app immediately crashes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, updated my phone, and tried multiple other troubleshooting steps and have not resolved this issue. The only way to watch their shows is by going through the browser (which has its own set of problems).
I would love to watch shows I like without having to practically jump through hoops in order to do so.
Frizzy up. Fix 2/5
I haven’t been able to watch this app for two week now. Can u fix the problem. I try to watch couple of the movie and then it start acting weird. And has been working scenes and I do not what to pay for something I can’t use.
Not better then the last version 3/5
The old version was a bit better, you could skip 30 seconds ahead instead of skipping the episode. I love this app, but still feel it needs more improvements
Not really worth the money 1/5
If you do want to put money into this app, crunchy roll is probably a better option. The episodes don’t load and stop at any moment. If you do have adds the adds are like 30sec-1 min long and there’s five of them. If you don’t like sub anime then you’re out of luck, there’s no dubbed. You have to go to a laggy website just to change your preferences. And every time you skip, it gives you five adds :)
It sometimes has trouble loading certain sessions, but other than that it’s great.
Add a feature? 4/5
I didn’t have any major issues with the app after months of using it. Occasionally I’ll have typical issues like needing to restart the app or something minor along those lines but that’s no different than any other streaming service I’ve had. I just wish there was a feature to create more than one profile just like any other streaming service. It’s annoying having other family members watching the same show and constantly have to figure out what episode I was on because someone else watched ahead.
14 Trial 2/5
I already purchased for the 14 free day trial and it’s still giving me ads. I had to do it 4 times and it still gives me ads.
App Crashing 3/5
I am having issues with the app crashing when i try to play certain content on my iPad. It works just fine on my iPhone.
Very Buggy on all platforms 1/5
By New world 70poo
Is becomes un usable 25% of the time the app won’t even load on my Xbox or Iphone terribly optimized unless you need to find on show not worth it just go to crunchy roll.
Edit: search bar don’t work
trying to watch love live superstar but… 2/5
it constantly buffers and spams me with ads (5 unskippable ones at that), this app is honestly so unstable :(
iPad app broken 1/5
iPad app is broke. Crashes anytime i select any show. Been like tha for over a month. Terrible
To many ads 1/5
i love the anime's but i have to watch 16 ads in total for only ONE episode!?! you got to be kidding me!! i would prefer to go on youtube,Hulu or Netflix before this there is WAY to many ads 16!?! like really you gotta be crazy to add that many ads for ONE SINGLE EPISODE so im not going back till theres a hack to get rid of the ads without paying or if you remove the 5 ADS you have to watch every ad break smh
This app is a psyop to get people off Anime 1/5
Seriously, it doesn’t register your subscription, closes whenever you click a video, and constantly replays an annoying animation for a monopoly company’s name.
Trying to get this app to work has made it so I don’t even want to watch Anime anymore. Say what you will about Netflix (and I have) but when you click a video, the video *plays*. Funimation? You need to pay with a drop of blood on a Wednesday but only if you walked on the left side of the sidewalk all day. And then you have a 50/50 shot of the video playing or the app closing and mocking you for wanting to enjoy this season’s anime.
Great App 5/5
Ever since I have come upon Funimation, I have been an anime fan ever since. I quit watching Netflix and Cable TV to watch anime. I hear that many people are having trouble with it. For me, it works perfectly fine. Although, there are times where it is slow and/or doesn’t work. That’s because of poor internet connection, no cellular service (if not connected to internet ) or it is under maintenance. And for those who complain about there being too many dubs, well they are good for nothing people. So don’t listen to them. There are anime that have either Subbed, dubbed, or even both. They should be grateful to have a dubbed version in their language. Furthermore, I am not a subbed person. But if there is an anime that catches my eye and turns from dubbed to subbed, I’ll watch it to the very end.
All-in-all, Funimation is a great app to watch the best anime on. If you do not see the anime you are looking for, go to Crunchyroll, Netflix, Hulu, etc.
By go neam
Bruh it’s good but like why I have to pay to listen to it in English 💀💀💀
POOR APP 1/5
This app gives so much problems. I’ve even reached out to them and the only thing they say is restart the app or delete and reinstall it. All that for what, I’m paying money to enjoy the app yet it still gives all this trouble and they themselves dont even know how to fix it.
Okay when it works 2/5
I don’t have any issues with the titles available, most of them I quite enjoy. The issue with this app is half the time it doesn’t work very well on my larger devices like my tv and my iPad Pro. It would constantly tell me a title is unavailable at this time or straight up refuse to load at all, no matter how many times I restart my app and check my internet connections. It works okay on my phone but it would be nice to be able to actually watch on a larger screen without having to reopen the app a bunch of times or just giving up and trying a different day. Please fix it.
So I have this on my tv and ipad and I was watching my hero academia and i made it to episode 16 but I couldn’t watch it so then I seen the problem and realized a lot of the episodes you had to subscribe to to be able to watch it. So basically the app is forcing you to buy the subscription to be able to watch anime. When it said either you could just sign in into free account and watch all anime that free. Or do subscription and watch all. So the app is already lying there it wasn’t free well it was but you get my point. So I can watch anime but can’t at the same time.This app is now permanently removed from my iPad until I can find a better anime app that o can have a free account and watch all free anime.Without having to be forced in a way to buy the subscription
Can’t playback episodes 1/5
The AirPlay feature doesn’t work in the app, you have to use the browser based website in Safari to get AirPlay go work. Once you do get it to work, it’s very buggy. Spent the last 15 minutes trying to get an episode to play past the intro. It keeps freezing at 32 seconds and looping back to 31 seconds. Based on the other 1 star reviews, I’d assume Funimation gave up on this app as soon as it was released.
Good but needs some improvements 3/5
I pay $5.99 a month for this app so I can any of the shows available to me without ads and so I can cast to my tv. The anime selection is better than Netflix and I don’t have to create a whole separate profile so my algorithm on Netflix doesn’t get ruined. However recently, I’ve noticed that while watching it’ll allow me to watch one or two episodes and then halfway through the second or third episode, it’ll boot me out of the app and force me to start the episode all over again. Since I cast this to the tv, I have to use wifi and I know my connection is good so it can’t be that and I don’t have this problem with any other app. If I’m going to be paying a monthly fee to use this app, I really ought to be able to ACTUALLY use it. Very frustrating to have to constantly reboot the app.
Edit: this bug has been fixed however a new one has popped up! Now I can’t cast in Japanese!! Like many anime fans, I strongly prefer watching in Japanese with English subtitles as English dub is super cringey. But now the app doesn’t let me do that while casting to Google Crome cast. Please for the love of all that is good in the world, FIX THIS BUG!!
