This question should have been asked on the survey just below the question on the number of anime series purchased...
00. Of the Anime DVD and/or Blu-ray series you purchase, how many are released by Funimation?
- 1 - 25%
- 26 - 50%
- 51 - 75%
- 76 - 100%
In 2008 my answer would have been 4.
In 2012 my answer would have been 3.
In 2013 my answer barely made it to 2.
What would your answer be?

My concerns with the future of Funimation are growing. Of the dozen DVD titles I have already purchased this year, only 3 of them have been Funimation titles. Sentai Filmworks has already released or has scheduled for release a number of titles from the 2012 seasons. I have not seen a single 2012 title licensed by Funimation even scheduled for release yet. Anime Works appears to be nearing its end. Their two biggest titles, Ikki Tousen (3rd season licensed by Funimation) and Queen's Blade (3rd season licenesed by Sentai Filmworks), have just been released on season 1&2 boxsets which means their license for each is most likely due to expire soon (all other things considered). Once expired, which company is going to get their respective 3rd season out first? Why is Funimation falling behind?
