The new is more than just a streaming service, it’s your one-stop shop for everything anime! We’ve got the latest and greatest anime home video releases, as well as a wide variety of apparel, merch, and accessories from your favorite series. In the past, our shop has been a little hard to navigate, but on the all new site it will be seamlessly integrated into the overall experience so you can find what you need and we can help recommend more items you might want.

(more…) Changes – Discover an Extraordinary User Experience

When it comes to watching anime, we believe the hardest part should be picking a show, not finding one. That’s why the new will feature more ways than ever to easily and intuitively discover and enjoy more anime on any screen!


More Apps on More Devices

Anime spans a ton of diverse genres, and that means a ton of diverse fans! Not every fan watches the same way, but everyone deserves to be able to watch how they want. During our FunimationNow launch, we’ll be rolling out new apps for more devices than ever. Including updated apps for ALL mobile and tablet devices, completely new console apps for Apple TV, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, and PlayStation Vita!




Mobile Responsive Site

No app? No problem! The new will be built responsively so you can watch any FunimationNow shows on the web from your tablet or phone. It’s not just our video player that’s mobile optimized, the all-new Funimation Shop will also be easier to browse on any device so nothing can stand between you and your favorite anime merch.

Search and Discover has the largest library of English dubs online, and with every passing season our catalog grows bigger and bigger. Finding new shows to watch will never be a problem, but picking the one that’s right for you can be paralyzing. Not anymore! Our new site will allow you to search for shows by show title, keywords, genre, and year—as well as make smart show recommendations based on your previous viewing habits.

Curated Content

The new shows we get every season are great and get a lot of love, but we don’t want to forget the classics you may have missed the first time around. That’s why we’ve created curated and mood-themed playlists to help boost the visibility of some of our favorite cult classics and underappreciated gems. These lists will come out regularly and grow and change with the help of fans like you!

FUNimation Shop free swag bags!

If you have ever been to the FUNimation booth at a convention you have probably picked up some free postcards, buttons, and other cool stuff.  Sometimes we get a little too excited and print more promo items than we end up needing. We hate to waste good swag, and know many of you would enjoy them, so we have decided to give away a free a bag of random goodies with every purchase in the FUNimation Shop.
