FUNimation Summer 2016: "Find The One For You"



  • Meh…

    After reading the show's descriptions/doing WIKIsearch, IDK about this Season. Could be wrong... but alas the premise "Find the One for You", is indeed correct; as I will be doing lots of "finding". This is a bit unusual for me, as I have been quite optimistic/satisfied the last 2 seasons. And of course, I will be spending like the 2nd half of this season in Japan, so that will complicate matters of course.

    At least, no more MHA spam, that is nice...

    (This is their best one so far, from the game)



  • @Fiammetta:

    Meh, perhaps: Will have to wait and see on this one. Nonetheless, need I explain I would be "partial to the contrary", as it were…

  • Meh, so far looks like a bunch of BL, reverse harrem and overall sausage fest crap. Considering the horrid state funi's mobile app is in. I see nothing here that could tempt me into resubscribing.
    Mind you crunchyroll, Hulu and Netflix all work perfectly on my Chromecast via all my devices. CR has already announced a stellar summer lineup and they are just getting warmed up. I suggest funi get their sh*t together soon unless they want to be completely irrelevant in the anime streaming market.

  • Sorry, I don't take YouTube click bait tga. If you have a point to debate use your words ;)
    Also I'd appreciate it if you would please stop cherrypicking quotes in your replies. Take the full quote in context or don't quote at all. You act like fox news in that regard.

    Yes it is finally over.

    It was implied… what I attempting to suggest is that why are you still on the forums? I thought you declared 2 months ago you canceled sub/leaving. So why the return?

    No matter...

    @classyspartan:

    FOR NOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    'touche, indeed my good sir, 'touche…

    EDIT: LoL, I just now realized they updated this picture with the kit rework/redesign Fiora… Hmmm.........



  • I'm actually just wondering when said season will come out. It can't be in that bad of a season as last one…

    Yeah I didn't make it all the way through ep 1. Way too much hype for an anime with horrible charictor design and half assed animation. Seriously, this was funi's flagship anime for spring 2016. And people wonder why I dropped my sub last cour….

  • Tga I said I was cancelling my sub due to a lack of content and a lack of a viable Android app to watch it on. At no point did I say I was rage quitting the forums over koolaid drinkers who refuse to speak truth to power. As a matter of fact I have been following the forums in the forlorn hope that funi would fix the droid app and provide content that I could pay for. As I stated I have actually been a paid subscriber since 2012. My old account got jacked up in a previous site update.
    I am simply returning as I said I would at the beginning of the summer cour to see if it is worth resubscribing. (Btw as I remember you don't know what a cour is… It is basically a season in western media. In anime it tends to be 12 weeks.). I hope this clears things up for you kid.



  • This double post but is starting to piss me off lol ;)

    Indeed it does, as I don't speak French. But no matter… "Back to the Pits with You!!!", I suppose. See you in Autumn.



  • Cour is not French it is an anime fandom term that I imagine classy Spartan and the rest could probably explain the history of the term better than I. Btw you are still cherrypicking the quotes.



  • @bernie1972:

    I only quote what I am taling about. If I were to quote your entire posts, it would be a /walloftext There is nothing inherinetly wrong with that; rather good editing skills.

    No matter…

    @Wikipedia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_in_Japan#Programs

    The Japanese have sometimes subdivided television series and dramas into kūru (クール), from the French term "cours" for "course", which is a 3-month period usually of 13 episodes.



  • No matter sorry to disappoint you but, yes I am still here, still demanding funi provide the service everyone else does and, unlike you still not drinking the koolaid. ( btw to educate you that is a reference to the cultists who willingly drank poisoned koolaid in jonestown).

    So when can we expect a functional Android app? This whole process took crunchyroll less than 3 months. The ancient one could probably give you an exact timeline re: cr's process from beta to full app but I remember it was fast as hell. Now CR has a stellar app.



  • Oh hey I got a shoutout. I feel so flattered.

    Nah but TGA basically just Wiki'd the answer.
