I love the app but I have the free trial because I can’t afford it right now. But that’s the problem the problem is why do I have to pay to watchtower something that’s been in my life since I was a little kid. All these apps just think about is money for example you guys and crunchyroll like why do have to pay why can’t you guys make things like these for fun and people don’t have to pay to get the best. ☹️
It’s nice to have the nostalgia, but... 2/5
It’s nice to have the nostalgia to go back to my preteen and early teenage years through the 2week trial but I wound up not continuing the subscription. DBZ was my favorite growing up next to yu yu. But the English dub has the Japanese background music. It’s like watching a more PG Kai because they don’t edit the blood and certain scenes out. To me it just isn’t the same without the western rock and roll background music. Funimation did an amazing job on that when I would watch the show back in the day on Cartoon Network/Toonami. Now I’m going to try crunchyroll to see if they do the same thing. Change that aspect and I would continue my subscription.
Works fine for me 4/5
I’ve seen a lot of reviews saying how bad this app is and it force closing a lot. I’ve had it downloaded for a week now and it’s maybe foreclosed a handful of times. But even then it’s not that big of a deal. I also don’t have WiFi at my current home and it’s been running well off just LTE. The only thing I wish is that there were more shows lol
The app...just doesn’t work 1/5
By TKD Kim
The show offerings are good, but barely anything about the app is functional. The search function doesn’t work at all, and “resuming” often takes you to a completely separate episode from the one you left off at.
Huge problem with the Dub. 2/5
Hello, I have dyslexia. So if I really want to watch any Anime. I need to watch the Dub. One of my favorite Anime’s is My Hero Academia. One of the huge problems I found was for Season 4 of the series. Only the first few episodes are dubbed. I have no idea why. But that’s the case. Also, 2 of the episodes were for Subscribers only. Like I said, I have no idea why. It really upsets me because I want to watch the Dub along side everyone else. But I can’t. This has saddened me quite a bit. I really do hope this gets fixed. I just want to watch the show.
so i was watching a series, then realized one of the episodes i had it be “premium” to watch?! like what? why? just one episode too. so good app, but very annoyed at that
NOT USER FRIENDLY 2/5
I’ve been using this app for about 2 years now, and i can say with 100% confidence this is one of the worst streaming sites I’ve ever used I’ve gave this app 2 years to fix bugs that have been a problem for a long time yet they’ve only fixed a couple and they one’s they “fixed” still happen form time to time, don’t even get me started on actually paying for a month subscription i had a month were i sent my payment and it took them 3 weeks to actually give me “premium” access and i only got a week to watch anime that i payed a month for and many other payment problems, this app would be amazing if they would just fix the small things
It’s not the best app 2/5
First off, really like the app! I get to watch all the anime’s I like such as Dongorampa and My Hero Academia! Second of all, it’s the adds. I get that you wanna make money! But, I just hate how I get like 4 adds when it’s supposed to have 1 add. I don’t really care if it has 2 short adds but, 2-4 long adds!? It annoys the crap out of me! Maybe make it where there’s only one add per the add things, or maybe make it where there are no adds, but there’s a donation page where you can donate if you want to! It would be cool, because then we would have more time to watch Anime and not be interrupted and annoyed if we don’t wanna waste our money on a show or app. If your reading this thankyou if you make us wanna not waste our money and do what I ask of you. If your not reading this then please read this. And 3rd of all, just wanted to say other than those other things, this is a great app where I can sit and watch so I’m not bored! I hope you reply (Or fix the add thing I complained about) bc I just wanna know if you’re gonna fix it or not! But thankyou for your time and have a good day!
DO NOT GET THIS APP GET VRV 1/5
This app never works. The only thing that works is the billing system. I contacted support about the broken website and app, they just brushed me off. Well, I’ll continue to stream anime off other websites like VRV. Any Funimation exclusives, I’ll just pirate it. (Like everyone else) I really wanted to help support you guys but you treat your customers like 💩. Pathetic excuse for a company. I hope you guys get a fat L in the future.
Pretty gay 5/5
I have to do most of the setting through the website even though i downloaded the app
It’s Great 3/5
I adore this app very much.I just have a problem,Whenever the episodes either say English,Japanese it will never speak English.Don’t get me wrong this app is addictive I would just like to understand it the current videos I’m watching aka series is My Hero Academia.Please understand this is such a great app and I wouldn’t wanna harm it anyway.Have a good day bye
Anime and ads 5/5
I wanted to watch a anime that I couldn’t find anywhere it’s called magic-kyun! Renaissance. I also wanted the ads to be more related to anime so that well you wait you are not so bored. Thank you for coming to my ted talk!
This is a cool app but I would really like it if they allowed content such as attack on Titan. Still I like how it at least let’s you watch good anime. Also another thing is that the adds are really long up to five minutes and they are played often. Over all I think this is a decent app to watch anime on
I watch a lot of dubbed and that’s what it has 5/5
By Super Anime Bros. YT
This has almost every anime with dubbed and subbed (mostly dubbed)!
If there isn’t an anime on it I would just go on Hulu or Netflix. Their customer service is amazing after you wait for their response they can help you out a lot! One time downloading wasn't an option on kindle because of a bug I alerted them that, and four to five days later, the bug was gone! And I use the app across every device to this day! In conclusion, the app is amazing and is easy to manage! Crunchy Roll is great and all but can it beat dubbed for only $4.99 per month? I can't even log into my Crunchy Roll account because it doesn't work! Also hey Funimation if you like what I'm saying hit me up on YouTube: Super Anime Bros. The one with 69 subscribers if I had 1000 subs I would've asked for a sponsor but I don't 😔
I got this app yesterday and it went well until I saw one of my show saying it’s 17 to only watch it.i don’t think some anime had a type to be watched with a certain age. Next when I started the show danganronpa it started out good with English until I got to episode three. Even tho I said uncut it my settings are on English it’s talking in Japanese language. It your settings say it’s on English not Japanese then I don’t know why it’s on Japanese language. If it’s a bug just tell.
The app is great, but there are only a limited amount of English episodes and the rest are Japanese. I hope they will translate it and make it English cause that will make it 5 stars
iPad Problems 1/5
This app never works on my iPad or iPhone. It logs in just fine, pulls up the amine you select, and then never plays the episode. I don’t get it. The app on Xbox one works amazing, the service is usually good, but it NEVER works on iPad, and i wonder why they even bother supporting on this platform.
Absolutely garbage. Use to work sorta well, now it constantly gets stuck on commercial loops.
Language problems 3/5
Is says that it could be in English but it is not English so I can’t watch any more of it
Japanese audio taken away 2/5
When I first signed up for Funimation, I loved it! The video is super clear and always reliable. I like the options it gave to watching in either Japanese or English audio. Personally for me, I can’t stand English dubbed anime, it always sounds horrible. Now recently my favorite anime’s are being changed to only english audio and I just don’t understand why, whoever decided to do that really needs to reevaluate their life choices.
Canceled my subscription and will advise others like me to do the same.
Good but there’s a problem 2/5
Funimation crashed and now my queue and recently watched is gone...
Do your developers even use this app? 2/5
-the English subtitles should be on by default
-the x button in the corner is unnecessary
-the play, skip forward and skip backward buttons are too small. Just copy YouTube’s interface. Make the buttons bigger
-offline mode does not download subtitles on My Hero Academia
-downloading videos for offline mode is extremely slow and does not seem to work unless the iPhone screen is on, unlike Netflix, VRV, Amazon Prime Video that download in the background
-there’s no “download season 1” button
-there is an annoying “Please Wait” delay whenever pressing the download button.
-I have to turn on Airplane mode and restart the app to activate offline mode. In VRV the offline episodes are accessible in normal operation.
-offline mode should only require two taps to play an episode, not three.
-there is an annoying modal pop up that says “limited access” in offline mode
-offline mode does not download both Japanese and English audio. It only downloads English audio and no subtitles on “Date a live” and “how heavy are the dumbbells you lift”
-I’m cancelling my subscription
No Naruto 2/5
This doesn’t even have Naruto
Funimation is literally the definition of garbage.
Should add Dragon Ball Z Kai. I like the original, but should have the recut version as well. Overall good anime and a good app.
It’s a good app. LOTS OF ADDS 1/5
DONT DO SO MANY ADDS- I was at the point where I couldn’t even watch my hero academia without having to sit through 30 minutes of adds.
Please fix! 1/5
By Not gonna say XD
Okay so I finally got enough money to watch my FAVORITE anime in dub! I didn’t know if it works well so I asked my friend cause she bought it already and she said it sometimes doesn’t load for her, from that I can infer that this app has poor streaming.. I can’t believe I was excited for this app, please fix those mistakes!!!!!!!!!!!
System to download shows is garbage 2/5
By Tony Tucka
After every single episode I watch, app crashes.
I have to download one show at a time cause it can’t withstand anything more than that. There are countless other issues, but you guys need to stop focusing on dubbing everything and actually build an app that can withstand the test of time and stop glitching and crashing CONSTANTLY.
I cant sign in 2/5
It’s says to put capital letter lowercase a number a special character and at least 8 characters long I did all and it says something went wrong
By Gloden1 Ninja8
When I’m trying to watch my anime I get multiple adds over and over, and over again each episode. My friend stops going on funimation just because there were to many adds.
It’s good but... 3/5
I have been using Funimation for a good while and never had any problems with it but recently when I go to rewatch an anime or watch a new episode that has recently been released, it says it’s not available in my region but certain episodes will work but my friends that are in my region are able to watch it just fine
Can’t watch episodes 4/5
What really annoys me is that all the anime I watch right after ep 2i have to get premium
Enable subs each play? 1/5
This app is horrible for subtitle play. You can’t even get rid of the box behind them. Will probably cancel after the trial. Just a horrible streaming app all together.
Bring back interspecies 1/5
Sorry this app doesn’t meet my standards.
It does nothing 1/5
Every time I try to sign up it says something went wrong,and I’ve checked 5 times to make sure my email and PW meet the criteria
I’m very curious on the app my friend told me about this site and a anime called My hero academia I started watching it till episode 67 that’s when it told me only Premium subscribers only can watch this I was disappointed and sad then I had an idea cause I was really obsessed with My hero academia and I wanted to know what else was going to happened so I downloaded the app then I found My hero academia when I found the episode that told me it was only for premium subscribers only it only had the audio Japanese and not English I got very confused cause I was on the website where it had the English audio but in. The app it only had Japanese which got me very frustrated and upset cause I can’t watch my favorite anime and I can’t get premium cause I’m broke😭.
One thing 3/5
Everything else is fine but its not fair that Funimation doesn’t let you watch some episodes just because I didn’t subscribe to them or pay money. I know the company for Funimation has to make money but you need a different alternative than not letting us watch episodes just because i wont subscribe this is bad for me because i cant subscribe
Way too buggy 1/5
The app clearly has an option to cast videos from phone to tv, yet the option only appears when trying to start an episode and only for a second before disappearing. If you manage to cast, it doesn’t work and continues to play episodes on the phone without showing any picture. Trying to click the video again to make it play causes it to play another video from the beginning, overlaying the video that’s already playing in the background.
It’s very disappointing because Funimation’s website was always pretty reliable for streaming anime, while the app is virtually unusable unless you only want to watch on your phone
It’s good 3/5
I watch my hero academia and I can’t watch episode 66 because I need to “subscribe” when I already am and when it doesn’t say that is it in Japanese and not English. I read reviews of this problems and preppie say that you had season 4 on dub since November. So what is going on well other than that it’s good.
Great! But its a little buggy. 4/5
When I first started watching on funimation, it was amazing! I loved all the shows. I usually watch on english. I was watching My Hero Academia on english dub but it kept switching to japanese. Please try to fix this!
No premium 1/5
By Kochi Chan
I got an xbox card and I tried to get premium plus, which is 8 dollars and my gift card was 25 dollars. I haven’t spend my gift card on anything before I tried to get it. But every time I would try to get it, it would say “how do you want to pay the rest” then show my mom’s credit card. I am highly disappointed that I didn’t get to use the gift card that I got for my birthday on the thing that I could had gotten. And I had to get on my phone to write a review about this. Why did it not work?
Always restricted to Premium 1/5
It’s annoying when I want to continue watching DBZ and get blocked and I’m not even halfway through the first season and it says to continue watching but premium and I got mad I was furious that I couldn’t watch my show because of a paywall ugh it’s a bad app you might as well be better off watching the show on illegal websites
Annoyingly inconsistent 1/5
I am paying for ad free viewing and every other day it’s hit or miss on if I get ad free or not.
Try some better selections 1/5
By Bj The Dj 2️⃣1️⃣6️⃣
Where was Naruto @@@@
How about bleach !!!!
Need I say more ????
Poorly designed 1/5
And I thought crunchy roll wasn't good this app buffers so much on ps4, crashes, and freezes. I'm glad I didn't pay for this because I was about to
Recently to many issues 1/5
Ok listen...I am on this app non-stop watching shows & within the last 2 weeks I’d say, I’ve have REPEATED ISSUES of the app randomly closing & logging me out, multiple play black errors & issues. Or when I go to the app there is no info displayed. Just a white screen. And then the loading of everything takes FOREVERRRRR!!! It’s SO ANNOYING - ESPECIALLY when I’m in the middle of a show that I’m hooked on (like right NOW-it randomly logged me out in the middle of watching show and isn’t letting me log back in-SO FRUSTRATING). I keep this app because it has a good amount of dubbed anime that I come to enjoy. However, if it’s going to end up being more trouble than it’s worth then I’ll cancel my membership and move on to something else. (VRV) so I understand technology has its bugs but when they tend to be consecutive it’s time to come to a resolution. At this moment I don’t recommend the app unless you have patience.
Their server crashed 3 hours into my free trial 1/5
There’s a lot of shows on here that I like to watch like trigun among others. I signed up for the free trial and started watching for about 2- 2.5 hours before it kicked me out. Can’t login to the app through my PS4 or phone mobile app. Probably going to reluctantly cancel before the free trial is even up. Not going to pay $8 month when I can’t even get through a single evening without a server crash
THE WORST UI EVER. 1/5
Seriously though. HOW can you even live with using this app?? The Apple TV version is horrendous as in I have to stream from my phone, and then the phone version is so bad that when you scrub through, you grab the bar to swipe to the home screen!!! 🤦🏼♀️🙄
