First off, I really enjoy the app. Haven’t used it in a long while, then I redone loaded and noticed that they’re using the ad type model now and got back in, and now I’m using the free trial and will likely use the paid version, however... I’m finding that the thin line that has effectively replaced the home button on this model of iPhone is always on when watching from this app, so I’ve got the bar on the screen over the videos that are playing. Other apps have the bar fade away when the screen isn’t touched. It’s rather annoying. The other complaint would be that I got to episode 10 of High School DxD and it just will not for whatever reason play the next episode. I’ve had startup issues on some before but they usually play. It’s like I’m not allowed to watch further, and just gives an error message. I tried other devices and it doesn’t work there either, so it’s obviously the service in general. Outside of that, I enjoy the selection of anime that’s provided, but like many that are posting reviews here, the service itself and the way it’s presented needs a lot of fine tuning. I want to love it, I really do. P.S.- a screen rotation option would be nice guys, k thx. That being said, thanks for the awesome app.
I love anime, I will begin with that small portion first, secondly this app when I first got introduced to it a couple months ago, I though wow, it seems to have ads popping up....but I realized, that how else are they able to create a profit if they can’t show ads? I did some more research on Funimation and asked around with my buddies at college, and they said that it is amazing and to pay monthly for the subscription....it’s is worth it! So then I said okay, fine, I will try it out....And so far I love it and will always pay to use it monthly! I watch anime all the time, I never have any issues loading any anime unless....I’m at work of course haha......but it truly is the the best working app to watch anime! They also have greatttttttt....series like High School DxD😍😍😍.....or Suzuka, and another one is C3 Anime, and much more....I personally watch High School DxD....it has about 50 episodes, and I watch them through all the time. Also A series called Yu-No a girl who chants love, is a great series....I personally recommend it. It is worth the price every month, I honestly only pay 7.99 for premium....and it works beautifully. Great price for great content! Especially anime!!!!!! :p Thanks Funimation!!
I like Funimation because of the variate of anime on a variate of platforms. But their are some flaws that I can see why others would consider other platforms 1 of them being that it’s so hard to delete and account I want to do this but was unable so I just end up using a second account. another thing is you can’t make profiles on the same account this is annoying for a big family like mine. Another is you can’t Delete your history this has never really bothered me but I can see how it could bug some other people. And one last thing on the app of Funimation is that I will turn on captions or subtitles for an episode and immediately the next episode the subtitles are gone meaning I have to turn on subtitles every time I choose a new episode. It is easy to turn on subtitles but me having to do it over and over again is what is annoying. Now I’m not hating on the app but giving suggestions on how to fix it. I really enjoy the app because it has a lot of series I wasn’t able to watch before and in Dub too. I think signing up for the premium is needed though because it gives you access to so much for so little. Thank you.
I was debating whether I wanted to get the Crunchyroll or funimation premium and saw they both had free trials so I thought might as well give them both a try and decide which to keep. Crunchyroll worked amazing and gave me no issues and I was already prepared to decide on that but I figured might as well try funimation before. Upon making my account and doing everything I needed to do I was set. I downloaded the app on my tv and when I try to log in it keeps telling me the info I put in is invalid. I try it a couple more times to no avail. I download the mobile app to see if there’s a difference and the same issue. At this point I think I may have mistakenly put a different password so being already logged into the service on browser I attempt to change my password. Turns out the password I’ve been putting has been correct because to change your password you need to know your current password. Since I know what I’m putting is correct I try it again but nope still says invalid. I saw the bad reviews on the functionality of the app but I decided to still give it a try but if I’m already having issues with logging in I could imagine how bad it must be when you’re already in considering the reviews I’ve seen. I’m not interested in dealing with customer support or anything of the such. This easily made my decision on which app to subscribe to.
While it is nice to have a dedicated streaming location that is legal there is little to make it worth it, especially for a price. This is more than a little expensive for the content when compared to every other streaming site, especially when you consider these shows are coming to us second and the only real costs are dubbing and hosting which only make up a small portion of overall costs. The app is slow, unintuitive, and buggy. When you launch is silences any music or podcasts you have on, loads, shows you and unskippable animation, and then loads the main page. Videos are extremely slow to start and constantly need to buffer more than any other app I have used. I have been unable to watch in portrait mode any videos. If you skip ahead with buttons or by dragging the location indicator it will stop and need to be restarted meaning you can only reliably watch a show from start to finish. If you close the app or stop playing a video you will almost often find it restarting from the beginning, again with no way to select location. You also have to log back in everytime you close the app. The genre list and search functionality is bare bones and poor to use. Certain settings like maturity filtering can't be changed in the app. All in all a poor experience I will not be paying for.
