A foremost leader in anime distribution, Funimation content is viewed by tens of millions around the globe on a daily basis. With hundreds of TV shows (some of which can only be watched here), dubs, as well as a healthy dose of high-quality feature films, the anime you want to watch is here, whether an old classic film or a newly trending series. With choices like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (2009), My Hero Academia (2016), Fruits Basket (2019), and Ace Attorney (2016) you’ll certainly never be bored!
Funimation offers four different subscription tiers, with even the free variant offering the same plethora of content. Premium subscribers will also be able to watch ad-free from more devices at once, along with the option to download for offline viewing.
Funimation also offers a Premium Plus Ultra subscription for $99.99/year. That includes everything from Premium Plus, but with an annual gift and two free rentals each year.
We tested Funimation and other subscription streaming services for more than 100 hours. Funimation is compatible with Apple TV, Roku, LG TV, Amazon Kindle and Fire, Chromecast, Android and Android TV, iOS, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
Funimation does not feature a ‘kids only’ section, but there is a filter parents can switch on that will remove all TV-MA shows. Parents can also check out this page for listings of recommended kid-friendly content.
