Funimation in Australia



  • So, Funimation is (finally) available to Australian viewers (without the use of a VPN or other skullduggery).

    I've subscribed to check out the service and to decide if I'm sticking with AnimeLab, jumping to Funimation or maintaining both.

    I've taken a look through the ALL SHOWS tab and found plenty to watch, but not nearly as much as I expected. Can anyone advise exactly what we are getting in Australia? Do we have the full range of series available in other regions, or (as with so many things) are we missing content due to territorial licensing issues?



  • I can guess (in fact I have a list, but it needs updating and I'm less certain on the AU side not being there myself), but the best way for me to know what shows you have access to would be for you to list them ^^;
    There are definitely shows on the US Funimation site that won't be on the AU site because they do not have the AU rights (and I believe there are some shows that will be on the UK site but not the AU one and vice verse; notable Funimation has AU rights for some Toei shows but not the UK).
    There will definitely be shows on AnimeLab that aren't on Funimation because not all of Madman's shows are licensed from Funimation and not all the shows on AnimeLab are from Madman (they have some from either Hanabee or Siren IIRC). For example, this season alone there are a couple of shows that are exclusive to Anime Strike in the US (and completely unavailable in the UK) like Grimoire of Zero and Sword Oratoria.



  • Thanks for responding :)

    Your list shows 288 shows. In Australia we have 225, which isn't perfect, but it's a better proportion that we get from some other services.

  • Thanks for the list!

    Couple of things to note is that the number of rows in the spreadsheet is misleading as I have separated out sequels which only have one page on the site, some of the entries aren't streaming (e.g. Rebuild of Evangelion), and some have expired (they are the grey lines). There are also some I already believe aren't available in AU which are in red (check notes as red is also used for shows that are licensed for AU but not the UK).

    You do also have a few that I missed however (and some I wasn't aware of because they are not available in the UK) so the number of rows is increasing...

    Interestingly, none of FMP is available on FunimationNow UK, but OTOH currently only S1 and TSR are available on disc from Madman (the in-print release of S1 has the Funimation logo and TSR has Kadokawa's. Fumoffu is OOP and, along with the ealier release of S1, had an ADV logo).

    I've only just hit the 'S' section though, I'll have to finish off later.
