How do I watch videos in HD?

Yes, but technically no.

Yes, the video player can be set to "SD", which stands for "Standard Definition".

A portmanteau of "simultaneous" and "broadcast", an anime simulcast is a show that is streamed online with English subtitles during the show’s original broadcast run in Japan. Usually simulcast episodes are available within 24 hours of the Japanese broadcast, but the delay can be longer depending on agreements with our Japanese partners.

Is the video uncensored?

If a DVD or Blu-ray has been released, then the video will be uncut for FUNimation Subscribers. This includes TV-MA content. There are some videos that we have not received the uncut version for yet, so they may be edited, i.e. the same as the Japanese broadcast.
