When it comes to watching anime, we believe the hardest part should be picking a show, not finding one. That’s why the new Funimation.com 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 Funimation.com 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
Funimation.com 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.
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!
Follow Your Shows
Keep up to date on your favorite shows with our new Follow feature! Get the latest news, episodes, updates, sales, and merch for each title you follow automatically delivered to your inbox with the click of a button. See fan reviews, forum posts, trailers, and uncut content all in one newsletter broken out by show and the information you care to see. Getting excited yet? We’re just scratching the surface. Keep an eye out for more feature reveals as we work towards the new site launch. And let us know in the comments which features you’re looking forward to!
