FUNimation has no control over the production of Rainy Cocoa.
I don't think he was implying that they did, but rather I think he was just speaking of his dislike of the brevity of the episodes.
To which I agree. The show simply IS too short. The moment anything starts to actually happen, the episode's already over.
This was probably the single most pointless, unnecessary show I've ever watched. Not once did it display any sort of story nor did I form any kind of attachment to the characters. The 2-minute (really only 1:30 if you take out the intro) running time just absolutely kills it for me.
I know a second season has already been greenlit, but if they're planning on sticking with the 2 minute format, I don't see it being an improvement in the least.
