Happy New Year! 2014 is a very important year for FUNimation because it marks the 20th anniversary of the company. Over the past two decades we’ve seen our fair share of super-powered transfer students, alien princes hell-bent on taking over the world, and robots with hard drives of gold. We’ve searched far and wide to bring you the most epic tales of magic, mechas, and disintegrating clothing. You’ve laughed, you’ve cried, you’ve been horrified and completely grossed out—and we’ve had an amazing time sharing it all with you.
For our twentieth anniversary, we want to take a look back at our past, highlighting some of our landmark moments and titles that are close to our hearts. To do that, we are creating a special website with a timeline that we’ll be filling in with all kinds of anniversaries and memories from our past. This timeline will be updated several times a month all year long. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s online, so be sure to check back often!
We’ll also be hosting sales on the FUNimation Shop periodically throughout the year, themed after events connected to our timeline. Plus, we’ll be adding trivia, tidbits about our history, and exclusive videos and interviews.
We know that you all love anime as much as we do, so we’ll definitely be looking for some fan-submitted memories from FUNimation’s past. When the time is right, we’ll ask you to take to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. to share those with us!
So, keep an eye out on all our social outlets and FUNimation.com for more anniversary fun throughout the year–we have a LOT planned!
