Blank/Black Player

If you are seeing a blank player, or if you attempt to play a video and the video does not play, please try refreshing your browser a few times. If this does not resolve the issue, please clear your browser's cache. If this also does not resolve the issue, please make a new ticket with the reason code "Other Video" and we will be happy to further assist you.

Can't Log Into Shop

If you are unable to log into the Shop portion of the site, but CAN log into the rest of the site, please submit a ticket with the reason code "Other Technical". We should be able to resolve most of these type of issues in a business day or less at this time.

Just Subscribed, Subscription Doesn't Work

We are experiencing an issue where some users are signing up for a FUNimation Subscription and then are unable to immediately watch subscription videos on the site. If you have been able to log in to the shop site, confirm your FUNimation Subscription and receive a receipt for this transaction, please make a ticket about this issue under reason code "Subscription Access". We do not have any user-side work arounds for this issue, but we can resolve the issue in most cases from our side at this time.

Buffering Issues

We have made several changes to our infrastructure that have resolved the previous buffering issues. However, we are aware that there are still a very small number of user experiencing buffering. Please make a ticket if you are experiencing this issue, as we have some questions we would like to ask you about your experience, via e-mail. You do not need to provide any information in your ticket aside from the fact that you are experiencing buffering-- however, please be sure to note what device (computer, mobile/table app/Roku/Xbox) you are experiencing buffering on, or select the correct ticket reason. Thanks!

Charged twice for pre-order

Your card is actually only being charged once. When you purchase a pre-order from the FUNimation Shop, your card will be pre-authorized, which means that it will appear as if you have been charged for the title. The pre-authorization charge should drop off of your card after approximately 10 days after you have sent in your pre-order. The full purchase amount of the pre-order will not actually be processed and charged to your card until your pre-order has been shipped. Find out more
