Awesome on TV App, Awful Mobile App  Zac Mowles  2 star

The tv App performs well and gives quite a few options. Haven’t had any issues. But the mobile, glitches, lack of info, constantly telling me to buy premium when I already have it, and just functionality. Truly needs a serious overhaul. Otherwise, no major complaints.


it gets the job done.  bsjsjsjsjjs  4 star

It’s a pretty solid app. It streams perfectly fine with a decent internet connection, it’s very convenient and gets the job done. It was made to be an anime streaming service and that’s what it is, and a pretty good one. Good amount of anime to chose from, doesn’t have every anime but a pretty good variety of choices. it’s easy to use, it’s just a solid app. the only flaw is maybe the ads you have to watch when not subscribed, they can get pretty annoying. but what’s worse is that some anime you can’t even watch without being subscribed which I really hate, the ads I get and can deal with but not being able to watch certain anime without being subscribed? that really bugs me. but still, the anime it blocks out without being subscribed is usually simuldubs and simulcasts, plus new releases of anime. besides that little flaw it still technically gets the job done, it’s meant to watch anime and that’s what it does, it’s pretty easy to use without many problems. 8/10

Issues  random person ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  3 star

When I first joined the app I was able to watch all the my hero academia episodes but now you have to subscribe to watch one of the episodes? Even though it doesn’t have the red subscription button what happened? And it had to be my favorite episode.


Mobile issues  nawaa304  2 star

The thing that frustrates me most is when I pause an anime to read the sub titles n I end up missing that phase button like twice because it’s SO SMALL!Also wayyy too many ads if you just download the app and don’t take any trials to the point where your can’t even enjoy the anime


Needs a lot of work  Disizjdjzja  3 star

Love the content, but the app is still very buggy...even running on the most recent version. Please please please fix it. Especially for a payed service, the app should not be this unoptimized.


Terrible app  Ash031097  1 star

This app is so buggy I struggled for so long just to watch one episode of one piece and it doesn’t even appear to be English dubbed?? I also selected to free trail with no ads but there was still ads? The screen also wouldn’t flip when I turned my phone sideways no matter how many times I tried

Great rush

F*CK FUNIMATION & #KickVic movement are both HYPOCRITES & SCUM!  Great rush  1 star

FUNIMATION was it worth joining in with your ill mannered, cowardly, and deceitful employees: MONICA RIAL, JAMIE MARCHIE, RON TOYE that you have to get sued for $1 million dollars in court for condemning an innocent man: VIC MIGNOGNA on lies that he's accused of sexual harassment? As for MONICA RIAL, JAMIE MARCHIE, and RON TOYE who've represented "FUNIMATION" as an unfriendly work place and being jerks on Twitter and YouTube to people who called out on their B.S. against VIC MIGNOGNAs' alleged sexual harassment charges, KickVic employees even threatened a certain number of anime conventions to force them to cancel VIC MIGNOGNAs' appearances to attend and encouraged their followers to cause trouble on both VIC and his supporters!


Bad app  Marks0595  1 star

UI is extremely buggy, jumps around when you try to scroll and it takes 30 mins - 1 hr to download an episode for offline viewing while all other streaming apps take about 5 mins.


It would’ve been 5 stars  CARLOS_YRN  3 star

It was 5 stars until y’all added ads and took out english dubs I can’t even watch one piece because of ads and if I could get past the 5 to 6 ads it’s not in English so please fix this also this comment might get lost but it was worth a try


Crashes, bugs, and never fixed  KennyD  1 star

Screen constantly jumps around when trying to scroll either horizontally or vertically. Episodes don’t appear in lists. App is essentially broken. And the most recent “update” fixed...nothing. I see the same bugs from before the update. Such as seeing a screen telling me to get ad-free by subscribing...which I already do...and am signed in...when I try to use the next episode button.

Add new animations  thanushka and peter  3 star

I think you should add new animations like sailor moon crystal And naruto because I was quite disappointed when I found out that you didn’t have any sailor moon crystal and naruto so please add them in but I Enjoyed the ones that were such as fruits basket thank you! 😊


Subscription  capp2108  1 star

I am actually getting really frustrated with this app. I keep trying to upgrade my subscription to premium but it won’t let me subscribe to monthly payments yet the option is there. I then tested to see if the yearly payment would work and without issue the payment options became available. This is so stupid! Why put the option to do monthly if they’re not gonna allow to pay monthly. I’m so close to cancelling but I love anime so much I’m trying to make it work.


Underwhelming  Tmcan8  2 star

The app seems to pulling everything from website integration and not all the shows are listed until searched for.


(READ) DO NOT SUBSCRIBE  Tango-peanut  1 star

-POTENTIAL SUBSCRIBERS BEWARE- Just wasted $$ on paying for a monthly subscription upon realising the app does not provide most shows that they showcase on their websites. Searched on their search tab and found no ‘results’. I would have to rank this anime app the lowest upon ever than the other apps I have subscribed.

Ads  Oshdms n  4 star

I really like this app and I don’t mind that it’s all (mostly) in English dubs. The only problem I have is that there are too many ads per video and I end up getting annoyed cause I usually get around 8 ads per vid and it’s just annoying, I understand that’s where the app gets money but maybe adding less ads but making them a little longer may help. Also I continuously get the same three ads (Tokyo goul game and 2 advertising the app) if you get a larger variate of ads I may not care how many ads there are as I’m always interested to see what other anime is on the app.


Didnt know a full library consists of 3 titles  Aries1740  2 star

They kinda brag about how they have a full library.. i check legit one of them and before it had at least 30 now for some reason it now is just 3... Add back titles there were some pretty good shows that were removed but or not showing up


UI Needs To Be Redesigned, Nearly Impossible to Watch on an iPaf  Belethi  1 star

The app has a lot of potential, but the UI needs to be completely redesigned. The buttons made it nearly IMPOSSIBLE to watch on an iPad Pro since the time stamp bar is at the bottom of the iPad and whenever I press it, it triggers the iPad’s home button instead. Also, you can only watch it from one orientation. I often watch my iPad ‘upside down’ since I position it upwards. Any other video apps such as Youtube and CR have no problem with this since they’ll just switch the orientation upside down but it doesn’t work that way for FunimationNow. A lot of the people reviewing the app have consistently pointed out how the UI is incredibly lacking. I think that the fact no major UI revamp has been made is a statement saying that Funimation doesn’t care about mobile viewers who watch Funimation and that’s very concerning. A real, thorough UI update and revamp is definitely required.

cant find my shows

Where are the shows?  cant find my shows  2 star

Half the shows you have in you service don’t come up in the browse screen when looking at all shows or at genres? I had to use the search function to find shows that didn’t appear in any of the listings, such as Assassination Classroom, Snow White With the Red Hair and Fairytale. All shows should have a tile in the browse menus or no one will know half the shows available.


Problem  ChelseaClaree  2 star

So I only downloaded this app today and when I first made an account the app was working fine. Cut to a few hours later and I reopen the app, I try to log in and it keeps saying that “the server is unavailable at this time,” which is really frustrating since I’ve started my free trial and if I can’t log in to my account I’m going to lose time in my free trial.


Glitch  ebsta25  1 star

Everytime I go into the app it closes down I have tried restarting my phone and I’ve uninstalled the app and restalled multiple time, it hasn’t opened once for me every single time it glitches out and closes down

Compact Fusion

Don’t get this app  Compact Fusion  1 star

It’s broken and no changes but patches.


Spanish Language  fideljr14  4 star

There should be some Spanish language anime like DBS(Dragon Ball Super). I love Dragon Ball but it would be great if they had it in Spanish so I could watch it and enjoy it even more since it’s my 1st language:)))


👎  jv0210  1 star

App crashes too much and must of the time has trouble casting to tv, had a free trial but already decided is not worth paying for.


Same glitches/bugs for over a year  MurderCityVintage  2 star

This review is for the iPad app with a premium membership. The app jumps all over the place when you try to scroll, it takes several attempts to scroll to the episode or show you are trying to get select. 20% of the time it says something to the effect of “would not load episode list” once you’ve finally been able to select a show, and you have to close out of the app and try again- sometimes multiple times. It does not keep track of where you are at if you cast to another device with chromecast, and those are just the issues I could think of off the top of my head. The up side is that they do upload new shows/episodes regularly and if you like dubbed anime, or are someone who cannot understand Japanese and like to multitask, this is one of very few options you have. You would just think that if they are going to collect a monthly fee for premium membership, that they would at least use a portion of that money to fix very obvious problems that have existed for a long time. I mean if crunchyroll can do pretty much the same thing- without these glitches, it just seems like it would be embarrassing Funimation.

what tue frig

to many ads  what tue frig  1 star

there’s to many ads that i cant even enjoy the show i’d like to watch. every time i start a new show, it puts on an ad. and after like 30 sec of watching it, it starts up a new ad! also, it doesn’t do different ads, it does like the same 2 ads over and over again. the app is also kind of glitchy as well. i like funimation, but i hope that it will fix the bug and turn down the amount of ads


Not well designed  ichthyophile  1 star

First the app is buggy. It frequently has a problem with the episode lists not loading. It frustrates me that it won’t rotate the screen on mobile devices. Not sure why they couldn’t make there app more like VRV.


CRUNCHYROLL WAS BETTER!  Bubblegumbunniez  1 star



Why do some anime appear but have any episodes  K9Craft123  5 star

Some examples of this is the rising of the shield hero and saga of Tanya the evil. Saga of Tanya the evil appears on Funimation but when I click on it it says “something went wrong trying to load the episode list”. Also at one point the rising of the shield hero said the same thing then day it had 15-16 episodes. I was wondering why this is.


Was once an enjoyable App  AlphaCRomeo  2 star

When I first started using this app, everything ran smoothly. In the last 6 months or so the app has had bug after bug. I have the premium membership and when I skip to the next episode an ad pops up asking me to upgrade to a premium account. When I start a new episode a pop up window shows up stating an issue has occurred trying to load episode list. When I go to my homepage, genre, or other page the app automatically scrolls down. Among other issues. 😭


Never seen an app crash so much  CalvinOTD  1 star

Crashes pretty much every time the app is used for more than 20 minutes.


Dragon Ball content  JamesCarrie  2 star

The lack of Dragon Ball content for Irish users is frustrating.

cathal murphy

Sufficient concept bad execution  cathal murphy  2 star

Nothing about the idea or layout should change, but the video one the other hand has lots of issues. There’s no option for quality so it’s always on automatic which is inconsistent at best, the video randomly stops even though it says it’s still playing and I’ve had to cases of audio cutting out. The ads for the ad free version are played twice for each mid role making what should be a manageable thirty seconds a overly noticeable minute. These problems on there own aren’t the worst and I’dev given a 2.5 if I could, but together they make watching things with this app irritating at best especially when there are better free streaming apps. Although if these issues are resolved I can imagine having a far more enjoyable experience, but for the time being I’ll settle for other streaming apps


Good with problems  Tazyman22  4 star

If your a lover of anime is a very good app to get with lots of great shows on it but it does have a major problem with lag. even if you have good internet this problem still persists. But still worth it if your a fan.
