  • Very Buggy and will not work with not hold settings


    By Samiese
    I got this app to watch a different spectrum of anime vs crunchyroll, and the selection of shows is great and the computer web browser is good, but this app, has bugs and issues galore, every time I see an update, they don't go away, they seem to get worse. I try to watch shows in simulcast and it keeps going to uncut even after you select simulcast, If you select closed captions in settings, every single video you still have to select it anyway, which on the computer you don't. The stability as well has issues, I will close the app, and it will still play audio even if the phone is locked, up to about 30-45 seconds. If I hard close the app, not just click out of it, audio will still play for 10 or so seconds. It also seems like the closed captions get desynchronized every few videos if you watch a few in a row and have to restart the player to rid yourself of the issue. I really hope they fix these problems because the layout itself it pretty good and the shows are great. UPDATE: Funimation did an update and fixed most of the problems I have talked about, great job developers! There is one bug that started recently where you cant always watch new episodes of shows because it says you have to subscribe, but it doesn't bug me all that much so I am updating my rating from two to four, five if that last bug is fixed.
  • If you need it, get it, if not, don’t

    I got the app cause my father already had an account, and I needed to watch the second season of fire force and Black clover, but, through the short time I’ve been on this app, it’s made me very mad, for one, there is no way to my knowledge to looks at all the episodes a certain anime without serving it up, for example, I’ve just finished an episode of black clover, then, I need to go get a cup of water, I turn off my phone and leave. When I come back I’m at the home screen. I don’t want to skip though the after credits, so I try to find the rest, but, to no avail. So now I have to search it up, Tao the anime, find the next episode, then continue watching. Also, many times, I have lost full control of the app to the point of where none of my inputs go through, and the only way I can pause it is through Apple’s notification bar. I’ve had this happen 5 times and I’ve only had the app for 2 days. And to answer, inputs worked fine throughout the rest of my phone. If there’s an anime you need to watch that’s on here, or a family member or a freind already has an account, I suggest looking somewhere else for a better mobile app. Edit:This app deserves more credit, it has plenty of quality of life features that help, and I feel like the developers do try to make the app better, along with that they update the anime’s as fast as they can. 1 more star for me
  • Great service, horrible iOS app


    By Briancfb
    I just wanna start off by saying that the content and level of quality of the shows available by Funimation are great. It’s worth the subscription without a doubt. However, my main issues are with the truly bad iOS app. Here is a list of issues I have with the application: bad UI and bad UI user experience, menu layout is too complex, no PIP on iPad, no auto play when watching series, no auto skip of a show’s intro/outro, resolution of Funimation logo is very low– lacking in professional premium look and feel, no touch screen hot spots for 10 second forward/backward. (Currently its just very small icons in the middle of the screen), episodes randomly skip and throw you out of a series sequence. On its most basic level the app functions well. It plays content without issue and that’s what it needs to do. However, I think it’s lacking in standard features that have been established by other streaming platforms. Overall this app truly lacks a polished/premium feeling. I understand that development on these features will take time to implement, or perhaps it just isn’t top of mind for the team based on other projects or budgets. Even HBO Max has a lackluster app and they’re loaded with cash. However, upleveling the app will do Funimation very well. It has such an expansive library of content and it’s really being hindered by such a base level application. Even just adding auto play for series would be amazing.
  • Sabotaged unless you subscribe


    By Soylent Bob
    I have no problem watching OTHER streaming services, but this service is so terrible it has to be deliberate. It’s as if they’re punishing you for buying their overpriced discs and daring to watch online. Constant disconnects, warnings purchase not available at this time, and warnings that episode is only available to premium subscribers make watching any purchased content impossible! If you do luck into a stream, there’s a good chance it will be full of ads (even if lets you watch an episode without them at first) before eventually crashing and losing your place. Losing your place not only means having to fast forward risking getting stuck watching ads and then crashing before you get back to where you were, but some episodes simply won’t load from the menu meaning you have to start from an earlier episode and try to make it back to where you first dropped. Funny, the ads never crash or drop out. Honestly, you’re better off trying to watch your purchases content from the free side of the app with ads as if you never bought it, assuming the episodes are available. So odd how the free with ads goes so smoothly compared to My Library. Another annoying feature of this app is its tendency to send you to visit the website on Safari where a banner tells you to download the app. Seriously, the app sends you to the website that tells you to use the app. Obviously no one tests this app, so it’s no wonder nothing works properly.
  • Funimation is a great app! Overall especially from some one who actually uses it.


    By Vespucci Motorsports
    I love anime, I will begin with that small portion first, secondly this app when I first got introduced to it a couple months ago, I though wow, it seems to have ads popping up....but I realized, that how else are they able to create a profit if they can’t show ads? I did some more research on Funimation and asked around with my buddies at college, and they said that it is amazing and to pay monthly for the subscription....it’s is worth it! So then I said okay, fine, I will try it out....And so far I love it and will always pay to use it monthly! I watch anime all the time, I never have any issues loading any anime unless....I’m at work of course haha......but it truly is the the best working app to watch anime! They also have greatttttttt....series like High School DxD😍😍😍.....or Suzuka, and another one is C3 Anime, and much more....I personally watch High School DxD....it has about 50 episodes, and I watch them through all the time. Also A series called Yu-No a girl who chants love, is a great series....I personally recommend it. It is worth the price every month, I honestly only pay 7.99 for premium....and it works beautifully. Great price for great content! Especially anime!!!!!! :p Thanks Funimation!!
  • Can be fricking annoying


    By yipyapzipzap
    Ok so I love this app and all cause it was great at first. Not a single problem. Until one day I was on the last few episodes of my hero academia in season four and... IT FRICKING SWITCHES TO JAPANESE INSTEAD OF ENGLISH. I look up everything I could and I tried to figure it out but I found nothing. I wasn’t gonna give up though cause I knew that there was a way. However I tried to watch it again and you know what it said! Uh no! You have run out of streams. LIKE WHAT THE HECK! I’m sry for getting mad but I spent hours trying to fix it but now I can’t even watch it in general! I love it so much my hero academia is my new favorite show but I can’t watch it! I’m gonna try to switch to Crunchyroll cause maybe they have it in English. Idk I’ll find out. Hopefully it works cause I didn’t come this far just to ((SPOILER ALERT)) see night eye die and the LOV still out there with the bullets that take your quirk away. This is still a cool app and I suggest that people get it but I don’t like the subscriptions. I know it’s how you make money and stuff and I understand why you have them, but I mean it kinda all got ruined for me. Idk if there is a different way or something to the solution of this and I’m just stupid but I would really like a response to this for some help. I don’t wanna switch to Crunchyroll cause I love Funimation. Ty for reading!
  • A bit confusing


    By Hi my names in behaved
    I like the app, it has more animes than apps I’ve been using like Crunchyroll and VRV, what triggers me is that some animes are incomplete and missing episodes even though the last release was a year or more ago. It also is a bit buggy sometimes being so bright the whole screen is almost white, and that sometimes instead of playing the next episode, will instead skip a season forward. I also dislike the way dub and sub works, I’m a pure sub watcher and occasionally even though I set it to sub, it becomes English dub without me setting it as that so I have to turn it back to Japanese and turn on subtitles again. I don’t know if it’s a bug and I don’t mean when the pop up saying “English Uncut” because that’s a fine fix when there is warning so I can put it back, but it’s just weird where suddenly it’s in English without me doing anything. Anyway, it’s a good app and I like it, I hope there can be some bug fixes on the lighting problem and the sub/dub changes. I also hope that it could do an auto episode update where when it airs in Japan, maybe an hour or so after, the episode is also on the app. I also hope that it can be more up to date on episodes. Anyway that’s the feedback, thanks for a good anime streaming app and please try to make it better.

    I’ve been having trouble with videos loading. I’m mostly always connected to some type of wi-fi network at home and at work and when I’m trying to go to the next episode and I click the Next Episode button it takes forever and a half to load and after a while it just kicks me out of the episode I’m on. And if I’m not paying attention to the episode I have to go into the queue and find my episode and place again, because it’ll restart the episode too. The loading issue happens as well when I’m trying to switch the audio from English to Japanese, it will load forever and then close out me again. And even when I switch the audio preference in settings on the app it will still be in the english when the video plays. I will even manually exit out and I’ll return to the same video again and again and again it will still have the same issue of taking forever to load and still be in the wrong audio setting. But over all I’ve been enjoying the vast variety of anime given to me. Currently watching D. Gray-man again and happy to be able to watch it on your app without adds. But it really kills the hype I have when I can’t even watch the episodes because it takes forever to load and play.
  • It’s not the best app


    By Uhhvtvrcrbjhubgb
    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! Also I’d like to make another complaint, can we please have our videos in English (at least half of the series I like is Japeneese so I can’t finish it) Please fix this, so I can watch my Anime, I’d really like you to, because I am really angry with this.
