Google Play Reviews

  1. Ray Fritz-avatar

    Very displeased with how the app is working. It will not do autoplay unless I'm strictly watching on my phone. It may or may not when streaming to the TV. It also will not save or recognize episodes I have watched. Everytime I go back to continue to watch a TV series I have to manually dig through and figure out where I left off. A real hassle it's become. It's very slow to load or reconnect. Really glad I started the trial. I personally wouldn't pay for a service that isn't properly working.

  2. declan weaver-avatar

    katschberg So many bugs... It is such a hassle to even watch one video. One problem is that ill try to watch an episode and ill get infinite adds, they wont stop, i would have to toy with it for like ten to twenty minutes to fix this. Not only this, but the thing pissing me off the most is how im on the app, only on my phone, and due to some bugs, i have to restart the app. After restarting the app, i try to watch my show, but then it says that i need to stop watching the show on my device. Unlimited cycle

  3. Formulabird88-avatar

    germany It is frustrating that the episodes do not stream well at all. It took me 30 minutes to watch 12 minutes of the show because it would just stop, I'd have to back out of the episode and try again multiple times. I do not have this issue with music streaming, Hulu, Amazon Prime, nor Netflix so my phone or service can be blamed. Of the issue is fixed I would definitely give a high rating.

  4. Bison Stampede-avatar

    borik The app leaves a lot to be desired. Playback is spotty at best. Some episodes play with no issues, others pause and freeze and I have to back out and close the app entirely and then get back in to try to reboot where I left off. I've used data, I've used WiFi, the playback doesn't seem to be affected by those choices. I've adjusted settings on my device, etc. Other than that, the controls are fairly simple and the format is manageable. *I usually watch streaming on my television through ROKU.

  5. Ryan Seidel-avatar

    now Edited to drop all the way to one star. I thought it was my internet or something initially, but I've found when I stream with this app it takes much more data than apps with similar length episodes like Netflix and it crashes constantly, so it's not the net. Takes me 45 minutes to watch a 20 minute episode. Only reason I still have it is because of content. Unless drastic measures are made I will not be renewing my subscription.

  6. David San-avatar

    app Worked really well at first. Great selection and I wasn't having any of the issues everyone else was having but then today nothing will play. I have closed the app and tried again, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app but nothing. So sad that what had been such a great viewing app is just another crappy app. Update April 9, 2020 None stop issues the past 3 days. Terrible app. If I could give 0 stars I would. Don't spend your money or your time on this app.

  7. rafael martinez-avatar

    rafael martinez


    anime of the decade The UI is good enough but the streaming quality is ok at best. I've also had issues with episodes freezing and getting hung up on certain parts of the episode. It's like trying to watch a scratched movie disc. The content is great but with the streaming being so finicky I couldn't recommend this app. Only die hard anime fans would be willing to put up with the poor quality. I forgot to mention that my internet connection is stable and strong, so I know that is not the issue.

  8. michael perez-avatar

    twitter Crappy signal any where freezes the app. It gives me problems on my phone and smart tv. I mean the problem is that it tells me I have to be a subscriber to watch things. I was a premium subscriber which is the problem in the first place. For me to pay for an app that is this problem is garbage!! They need to fix their problems quickly. Don't even have a phone number for customer service!

  9. J. S.-avatar

    one piece Has potential but they need to fix some things. I am not sure what keeps happening but sometimes episodes will disappear all together. Other times the episodes that were in english the day before are suddenly in Japanese. It flips back and forth between it. I feel since I am paying a monthly membership then there should be consistency here. I also feel there aren't as many shows as I expected considering it's FUNIMATION! Expect to have issues loading a vid as others have mentioned. .

  10. Francisco Mendiola-avatar

    Francisco Mendiola


    deutschland I love the content of this streaming service but after about 3 years of subscription, I don't believe there is much improvement on the bugs for the app. Considering that this is an app I and others pay monthly to use, I would expect the company to focus on an errors and deficiencies of the users' interface. I normally have to open and close the app a number of times to get it to work properly. The day I find that there aren't any annoying bugs will be the day I improve my initial rating. Please.

  11. Arthur Sideris-avatar

    The app could do a better job of keeping track of your recently viewed. Sometimes it's not always up to date. For instance, if I watch on a different device, that viewing history isn't saved when watching on the initial device. I also wish I could skip to the next episode while casting using a skip button instead of moving the time slider or by pressing the skip 30sec button until the end of the credits.

  12. Alli Kollar-avatar

    For the fact that this is one of the leading websites / apps to stream anime, they have a really crappy design. You can't have subtitles unless it's in Japanese, which really sucks because I prefer dubbed & I'm hearing impaired. Also the browser version of this site isn't much better, despite the fact that I have pretty decent internet, the load times are always slow, & I still haven't found 'my que' making it so I have to use the search bar every time. Fix your site Funimation.

  13. andy castillo-avatar

    Is one of the worst apps to navigate, constant restart of shows, subtitles tend to lag behind, shows don't want to start, super slow at times, the shows are fine duh, is not about the shows but the app itself, it is 2020 it should be even a little bit better. So frustrating to even try to start a show, sometimes all you see is their white screen with no selections. 2 stars cus they have shows and they play eventually. Maybe I'm being too nice.

  14. Erik Carrillo-avatar

    I can't even watch 5 minutes of any show without the video pausing and stopping completely. I have great internet so I know it's not coming from my side, so the streaming service must be garbage. I'm glad I didn't pay for a subscription because this app just doesn't work reliably or at all from my experience. I tried it on my other phone to check if my phone is the problem and nope I still have the same problem. If you're gonna charge subscription fees make sure your service works first.

  15. Kynnie Campbell-avatar

    Kynnie Campbell


    Great animes, when you don't remove your own content. However, I can't believe you actually charge for an app so slow it should be free. I can barely go 1-2 minutes without it pausing, and when it doesn't fully pause it seems every 30 seconds the video stops and the audio repeats itself. I can hardly follow a single episode without wanting to throw my phone in frustration every 5 minutes, and it is not a problem with my phone or connection, it's just your terrible app!

  16. Bohdy Koslow-avatar

    Extremely unreliable. Good luck having this service work consistently over any device. I've had problems on my phone, on Xbox, PS4, Roku. There's been not a day that I've been able to use Funimation without some inexcusable or downright frustrating app breaking problem. Too many bugs and problems to list, but after 4 months of trying to stick with them for the content, I've been left with nothing but disapointment and wasted money.

  17. Maura O'Brien-avatar

    The app is super buggy and it has never completed downloading an episode without failing. It has also frozen mid-episode and given me an error screen. Then when I tried going back and restarting it, the audio played and the error wouldn't go away. When finishing an episode and going to the next, it has more than once completely skipped an episode. I wouldn't recommend getting this app.

  18. Preston Ritter-avatar

    This app used to be amazing...not so much now. Recently they had an issue with buying and using gift cards which took FOREVER to resolve. Now the app can't even keep the audio straight. Like 3 episodes in a row will have English Dub, then the next 2 in only Japanese, then a few more in English, then only Japanese again, and so on. I'm strictly a Dub viewer. If you have the Dub available...POST IT!!! None of this searching hoping enough episodes will be in English

  19. Yejun Kim-avatar

    Do not get ever get this app on android. The contents were decent enough for subsipcription, but I'm shocked how bad the user experience is. There is an error every time I try to play a video or download it (yes, the wifi was good enough) and I can't even log back into the app after the app kicked me out for no reason. It takes ages to load a single video and the overal ui and subtitle sucks too. For the subsription I am paying, this is unacceptable for me. uninstalling

  20. Danielle Nurse-avatar

    The app constantly crashes when watching in my chromecast. I get an issue when I pause or close the app after pausing. The app doesn't take me to the right episode I was watching. Sometimes it will go a few episodes back and play from the middle. And sometimes it won't play the next episode automatically. It will just stop the playback and I'll have to go and find the episode I need to watch. I am constantly frustrated with this app but I have very few choices to watch anine. Very unimpressed...

  21. Sara Heier-avatar

    Almost terrible!!! The player keeps freezing and then proceeds to play the audio about 10 seconds prior, and then the player catches up with the image of the show. When playing the player will awkwardly pause itself, and you have to hit play to resume what your watching. Keeps crashing too when I start up the app. Better off watching it on other mediums like your laptop.

  22. Ian Whitten-avatar

    Good App. Has shows that I like to watch and want to watch again, but please get it together. Some episodes of shows I have watched were English dubbed, I know, don't judge me lol, but now they are no longer that way. Other shows that are running simulcast used to be up to date on dubbing, and I've fallen behind due to preference of how I like to watch. Or some episodes are missing. Rewatched Black Clover, and episodes gone or shown in Japanese when previously offered in English as well.

  23. JS Xeno-avatar

    It is flakey. The downloading options sometimes work sometimes don't. Its a gamble. The files will freakout and you need to remove episode and try to redownload. The layout is okay. Only lets you dl 13 episodes at one time. Even if those are 4 minute episodes. Sometimes episodes don't show up. It needs some serious work done before I'd give it a 5 star review.

  24. Joey Hogan-avatar

    It's been over two years now and I still have the same problem with this app. You cannot watch an episode without it pausing, for multiple seconds to minutes. Other streaming services don't have this problem. I also don't understand why you can't just fix the problem and I shouldn't have to contact your support group. you guys obviously don't want to fix this app or would have been fixed already. Do not download this app and do not subscribe to Funimation.

  25. _AC_E_ Coleman-avatar

    Not a bad app but sadly there is less anime on here than on Hulu...which seams kinda crazy considering that's its main focus. But the main reason I'm giving it a low rating is because: even though I have the video quality set to the lowest of the low, the videos freeze and I have to exit out of them and try again at least 10x per video...I can watch Hulu, Netflix, Facebook, and YouTube without that problem. So I fully believe it is the site/app itself.

  26. HaiEverybody XP-avatar

    HaiEverybody XP


    I do like this app and I always have. Understand that I'm not trying to be super nitpicky. It's just that I am a huge fan of My Hero Academia and I am confused as to what is going on with the English dubs. I know that prior to this, they were delayed by a week or so. But there are episodes that have already been aired in English that aren't available as well as episodes that say they are available in English but really aren't. Just about every episode plays only Japanese. Please fix this.

  27. Cookie MonsterTM-avatar

    Cookie MonsterTM


    I used to have this app and it wasnt all that bad cause they had good shows and everything but I deleted it. Now that I've downloaded it again it wont allow me log in or even make a new account because of my existing one. Everytime I try to login it doesn't even tell me incorrect password or anything it just says "login failed". So I'm very confused on what I'm supposed to do here cause they have a show that I really want to watch but I cant find it anywhere else and it makes me aggravated.

  28. SakaRaki-avatar

    The anime library is good. Now that I got that out of the way. It is excruciating to use this app. Having it drop my membership, telling me I'm banned from getting one, and then just charge me again then give it back to me. Egregious customer support, and just an app where it sometimes works. It is such a hassle. I'm only on here cause of my hero, and my partner prefers dubbed. If you like sub go to crunchyroll.

  29. Caitlyn H-avatar

    This app is great!.....when it actually streams, I find that searching alone takes forever to load up if it does at all. When it does show up I have to wait again for episode options which never seems to load on the first. When I do get into an episode and it starts working it need to buffer every 5-10 minutes. I absolutely love the variety of shows but these bugs really need to get fixed or people will stop using this app.

  30. Cooper Outcast-avatar

    I enjoy the app. But it is rather limited if you don't already have an idea of what you want to watch.. My major issue is you cant search by anime season. This makes it hard to find a show unless you know it's name and search it specifically. Otherwise you are in what seems to be an endless scroll looking for that one show. It wouldn't hurt to have more genres added so searching by genre would be smoother too.

  31. Ben Sperle-avatar

    Back on 05/26/19 i gave 5 stars. Now it says 2 but its more so 1.25 to1.5 stars. I constantly have to restart the app OR my phone. Vids will sometimes NOT load and just stay like its trying to load. When it is working its great. But over the last year i nocited alot of changes that made it worse. If this was a free service it would be understandable. But because its a subscription its a very poor app now. Please FUNIMATION FIX YOUR APP!!!

  32. Dario Nanbu-avatar

    Why can't the app show the most recent show uploads? It's hard to catch new episodes as they go up. Almost as if by design. Also it lacks support for roku. Edited to up date. Even though I'm a subscribed customer I'm still seeing ads on some shows. I'm literally seeing ads telling me to subscribe so i don't see ads. Lowering the rating further for bugs.

  33. Avery Hutchinson-avatar

    Avery Hutchinson


    The only reason i haven't deleted this app and stopped using funimation is because it has a good selection of anime. But this app is horrible. The video player will constantly freeze and skip back. The app design is clunky and inefficient. Id love to use this service but the app makes the experience just miserable. Not to mention I've seen nothing from funimation even saying that they're trying to fix the problems. If they don't fix this stuff ill probably just unsubscribe.

  34. David Miller-avatar

    Idk what is wrong with this thing. The casting is spotty at best, the episode list never loads, it doesn't save the watch progression, and it gets stuck on a loading circle over half the time or it says cant play this video at this time. Come on guys this is a monthly subscription and some of the online video casting websites work better. Please fix this. If crunchyroll had more English dubs I would have already switched. 3 stars for variety alone.

  35. drizy warmachine-avatar

    drizy warmachine


    I use this app alot, but its awful. Love Funimation, but the app runs terrible. It's slow alot of the time and takes a long time just to get the video to open just to start an episode expecially when trying to cast. Sometimes trying to cast it will eventually just stop working (including trying to play from phone) and I have to go to the website on my laptop to watch episodes.

  36. kawii viral-avatar

    Good app, but it's making me mad. I just want to watch some shows but I'm popping up as mature content so it wont let me watch it. I tried to search it up on google and that didnt work. There should be a option to continue on with the show even if it is mature. Plus, I am 19 years old and am old enough to watch this show. Idk why it wont let me.

  37. Efrain Viera-avatar

    Things are missing that are essential here! The app itself is not difficult to navigate through but when you are trying to binge watch an anime for example it doesn't allow you to go to the next episode automatically and for some reason it doesn't tell you what episode you are on at all. I'm speaking from experience connecting it to my Chromecast and casting it to my TV. Please fix these minor issues Funimation

  38. alleygames !-avatar

    good app but I hate that I'm missing out on episodes just because I have to "subscribe." the only reason in not subscribing is bc my cousin did and had her money taken away from her😔. so I'm scared that will happen to me. I was just watching something and I stopped bc it wasn't working bc I needed to subscribe. other than that I'm all good. also u need more shows. there aren't many.

  39. Kid_Worm-avatar

    My experience? Horrible this app doesn't like to load most of the time when I do get in I'm presented with another wait time for the episode to load then sometimes mid episode it just starts loading. If I pay for the service I expect it to work most of the time I use this for dubs and some exclusives look crunchyroll does not have a problem with this at all it is very reliable and I don't have to wait for long load times why can't I have the same experience over here.

  40. Khoi Nguyen-avatar

    When I try to watch and it comes to the ads, it keeps repeating the same ad. Then when the yellow bar representing the ad comes to the end, it just starts over. Also each time I use it, the video gets more glitchy and keeps repeating and stopping the video more. It just comes to a point where it stops working.

  41. Avanah Blossom-avatar

    This app isn't recommended, I paid for the highest priced subscription for this app yet despite my excellent wifi connection, the thing glitches like crazy, wont load videos...which buffer like crazy, non of my other anime apps do this at all. The app wont load more than half the time! Also I read that with my subscription I would receive an annual gift...which I have yet to receive. I sent several emails explaining my issues but to no end. If this continues I will terminate my subscription!!😡

  42. Joseph Washington-avatar

    As a software developer that works on an application that is used by a lot of people. It is frustrating to use your app. I feel like you didn't even test it properly. It is always freezing, going extremely slow, starts random episodes and just fails. Why are you charging for a beta app. I can't stand it when companies release broken software and want compensation for it. I hope your are giving a majority to the content creators because this app is garbage. It is even more garbage on TV's.

  43. Shanna Lynn-avatar

    So I would give this app 5 stars if it performed better. The content is great and they sort everything specifically by anime genres rather than just generic genres, which is nice. But half the time I can't get things to load despite having GB speed internet. None of the other streaming services I use have this issue. If you guys can fix this I'll change my review.

  44. Danial Blanck-avatar

    Unable to login after paying the subscription coupled with times where it will play one episode and play the next one. One episode selection button only goes to the previous episode not forward. I have tried opening and reopening the app to see if that fixed the issues but no it did not. I'm sorry to say this but people should ask app sites like this to remove nonworking apps like this one from their sites.

  45. Jacob Scarbrough-avatar

    Jacob Scarbrough


    Come on funimation. For years I've been paying for my premium membership and now I barely get on because the app is so broken. Most of the time the servers are down for some reason and it won't ever load. The dark and rivalry category is there but you tried to take it off so when I tap nothing comes up. Get a grip and fix it

  46. Logan Walters-avatar

    Yet another mediocre anime streaming app. Just settle for what you get on Hulu or Netflix etc... because there never has been and at this rate never will be a reliable anime streaming app. You cant play a single episode without encountering some type of bug. The app has no idea what episodes you have watched. It fails to play the next episode half of the time. Randomly logs you out of the app. Restarts the show you are watching randomly.

  47. Antoine McCoy-avatar

    I paid for my subscription and it won't let me watch NOTHING on my Xbox One S. It keeps saying I need a premium account, but I HAVE A PREMIUM ACCOUNT! I tried calling customer service, but their line has been busy for a week! It funny how this app can still take your money, but when you have a problem there is NO ONE THERE TO FIX IT! THIS IS MY SECOND TIME GOING THROUGH THIS BS!

  48. Ryan Dennis-avatar

    I've has the Funimation service for about 6 months now (as of me writing this review) and I love the catalogue, and the shows their service offers. But the app itself is horrible, I can't stream on a higher resolution without it buffering non-stop- and even on a low resolution it still occasionally gets caught up buffering forever and doesn't seem to pre-load the videos. The actual app is pretty bad too and doesn't have a great option for skipping to the next video + is overall clunky.

  49. Angie Johnson-avatar

    It's a good app but it's always pausing and glitching. I have to stop and start what I'm watching everytime this happens. Auto-play works sometimes. Sometimes none of the shows start showing. I unsubscribed but I was still charged. So I had to redownload the app. Don't download this app unless you want to keep paying for something that don't work right. Please fix this app so I don't lose money especially at this time (virus outbreak)!!

    There is some problems! I was watching a anime and then I got out of Funimation for a few seconds... After that I went back in but it kept on saying "Unable to connect" I kept on resetting my phone MULTIPLE times and checked my wifi and and my service and everything was normal and I checked my Funimation account on other devices and the same thing happened it makes no sense! I now feel like I wasted my money something that was not worth it and the interesting thing was it was working fine early!

  51. derp-avatar

    Honestly funimation has an amazing variety of anime. But it hardly works on my desktop perfect on my ps4 perfect but on my phone absolutely garbage. It will get into the episode and just load and it will play for less then a minute then load I tried watching a movie that is like an hour and 30 min it took me a whole 2 hours and 30 min to finish the movie. If you have to watch anime on the phone use ANYTHING other then this.

  52. Arwin Burkett-avatar

    Not optimized very well. Shows freeze/lag too often. If you're not going to make a skip intro feature like Netflix or Amazon Prime, you could at least make the fast forward button more useful. Tapping the skip 10sec button 9-10 times in a row causing more freezing/buffering issues is pretty frustrating. This is one of the worst streaming apps.

  53. Adrian Martinez-avatar

    The App developers do not seem to care how the reviews look. We are paying for a service and want it to be as good as any other streaming service. But the app has trouble loading. It says unable to connect, even when you are using wifi. The app has to many bugs that need to be fixed. I would not reccomend getting this app or paying for its services until something changes. Netflix and Hulu have decent anime so I'm going to cancel my subscription till I read different reviews.

  54. Nathan Tims-avatar

    I would give it more stars if it didn't freeze and have trouble loading on my TV. Also it needs the ability to skip intros. I took away a star because apparently I can't get ahold of customer service whenever there is a problem. Sorry, but I don't want to wait 2-3 days for someone to fix a service that I'm paying for.

  55. Brittney Herrera-avatar

    Never works on my phone It will play half an episode and then just freeze. I tried using mobile data, different wifis, uninstalling and reinstalling, nothing works. It's fine in my TV. Just not my phone. Update: So I figured out that the problem is that my sister and I cant watch at the same time. If we try then whoever's on the TV has no problem but the phone app and laptop wont work. Still a problem since I am supposed to be able to watch on two screens simultaneously.

    Crashes a lot. Fix it! It works fine when it wants to, then sometimes it just crashes, and closes the app. Also sometimes it takes forever to load. It wont load the episodes or the home page. At first i thought it was my wifi, but every media app but Funimation works fine (Netflix, hulu, prime video, and Disney plus.)

    I would love to give this a higher score, but there are so many issues with it. Some of the big issues are, sometimes auto-play just doesn't work and you cannot manually skip to the next episode. But the one that pisses me off the most, is I leave my tablet in a stand the is in landscape but when I go into the app is reorientates it into portrait and locks it but when you go into a video orientates it correctly to lanscape. But these problems have been around forever and it will never be fixed.

  58. Hollie Ward-avatar

    Terrible. Videos don't load. Loading animation spins infinitely. If you do manage to get a video to start, most of the time it stops repeatedly during playback. Happens on all platforms. Playstion was worst. Couldn't get it to work at all. And works WORSE when you get the premium option. Was nowhere near as back when they had ads on it.. Didn't want to put this here but there's no place to get help

  59. What am I Guy-avatar

    The subbing and dubbing of the series is inconsistent some are only dubbed while some are only subbed in the same show, theres a similar issue with the subscription, some episodes require subscription others dont. I'm salty with this kind of stuff cause I was peacefully watching anime then the last episode of a non subscription required anime required a subscription. I'll keep the app so if there is a developer who reads this and fixes the issues they fix it. That is all, thank you.

  60. KitKat Meow-avatar

    Who ever runs this service sucks. This app has fewer function and with many of their applications their are a lot of login issues. I can't even access the app on my xbox one because it says my info is wrong and I know it's not b/c I logged on directly through chrome with no problem. I hate that this is the only way to watch certain anime I love when they can't focus on such little issues to ensure their customers can actually use it.

    So far I'm paying for a service that barely work. My tv box refuse to sign in even though other app work fine and internet is working properly. Even on my computer I keep getting log off after watching a few anime that if they work properly they do buffer. Either fix the streaming service and supply a better app or lower the price. I won't be renewing after my year is done.

    The app has great access to content in dubs and subs, so for that I give it three stars. The content runs well once it loads. The problem is that I have to constantly restart the app or restart my phone for the app to start streaming content. Sometimes it just doesn't stream content at all. That is a major issue for paid content. Other major streamers work well, and so should Funimation. Even with high speed internet access to servers is very slow or doesn't work. Needs improvement.

  63. Anoni Maus-avatar

    Considering I'm paying for a subscription, I expect to easily stream episodes in the blink of an eye. However, that isn't the case. It takes much too long to load the selection onto the screen, and even when it "loads" it buffers mercilessly, despite having great internet connection. I don't even get the 10 second skip options on the player, all it does is make the video buffer longer than the 10 seconds, making it utterly pointless. Compared to other subscription services, this does not cut it

  64. Alexis Gordon-avatar

    Positives: 1. Decent selection 2. Allows you to rate shows 3. Happy with the suggestions it gives 4. Several in both Jap & Eng/sub & dub. Negatives (please fix): 1. App times out or freezes frequently 2. Will skip episodes if you are rewatching a series & you don't allow it to play through credits the 1st time through 3. No subtitles available for shows that are in Eng only Suggestions (please add!) 1. Skip intro 2. Allow users to change layout 3. Better Que layout

    The variety of shows to choose from is good and the release of new episodes are frequent. However, either the app or the servers for funimation are terrible. While streaming, the stream often freezes or the video lags behind the audio. It hasn't been this bad in the past but has grown worse over time.

  66. Turbo Tactics-avatar

    Funimation is a fantastic company and I love their products. But this app is almost useless. I have a subscription to it for certain shows I watch and I cant even watch them. I could be on home internet (roughly 200gb a second download) or on data 5GE like I am now and itll pause and skip and cut or freeze entirely. You cant stream anything. Wouldnt recommend right now.

  67. Brian Freyling-avatar

    Can't remember your sub/ dub settings and to fix is multi step every video. Still doesn't have a spring 2020 section two weeks into the new season. Does a horrible job of showing if a new episode is out or not on videos in your queue. Frequently takes a long time to load the app or doesn't work all together for a day. Caption timing and display style are not ideal. Worse then crunchyroll in every way except fumigation licenses some of the best animes so still I pay.

  68. Alex Buckner-avatar

    Always keeps restarting my episodes randomly in the middle of watching. Takes forever to load. Will not load rest of options to watch so i literally have to know what i want to watch to type it in search. And the newest issue is now funimation is skiping like 20 episodes of black clover. season 2 ends on episode 86 and season 3 starts on episode 104.... Will not fix no matter what trouble shooting steps taken. And I took screen shots to post everywhere. This is rediculous, I pay money for this.

  69. Josey Booth-avatar

    I love the funimation content which is the only reason i stay subscribed, but honestly the app is trash. Crashes frequently, i often lose the option to use sub titles, the app crashes frequently and sometimes it even tries to tell me i can't watch an episode because "im not a premium subscription" even though i am also it has a tendency to not display all episodes of a season. Along with various other technical malfunction. Completely unsatisfied

    Occasionally the most recent episode is not downloadable and dubbed version is not always available. Streaming during the day involves a lot of buffering, while other apps play fine. The plus side is the endless amount of shows available include a lot of my favorites. Needs work but worth it. [To] Developers: although it works fine on my tablet, please include a fit to screen/zoom option. Its damaging the screen on my new phone and might have to cancel my subscription if left unresolved. Thanks.

  71. Jayslayerjay66-avatar

    Had to edit my review well this app barely works now and I pay for content that I don't get. It says that you get English sumilcasts well I have been waiting for over a month now for the new episodes but I guess funimation doesn't care enough to give me the content I pay for. I have this strange feeling that advertising something that you don't get is against the law I think it might be called "false advertising" lol. Funimation doesn't care so don't give them money.

  72. Ryan Carter-avatar

    This app hangs up when loading the episode lists probably 60% of the time. I never know when it will finally load or I must give up. Also, episode progress is NEVER saved. It starts from the beginning if you exit the episode and return. Also, it doesn't track the last episode I watched. Also, if I back out to my anime title list, it is blank and must be reloaded. Upon reload, it duplicates my list infinitely. I can scroll down forever. Those are just the most annoying of the many problems.

  73. kacchqn-avatar

    I was watching My Hero Academia and during s4 and previous seasons, and I was very disapointed when I found out about this, most of the episodes were in Japanese and in all the advertisments that I've seen of this app it says, "subs and dubs" so I was very disapointed when I found out about this problem. I have not subsribed to this app and that may or may not be why this is the problem.The creator has just recently made an update on this app, but I hope they can resolve this problem for me.

  74. Slayn-avatar

    The description says I can watch five different screens simutaneously, yet I cannot. I login on any other device, all others log out. Loading time is depressing and quality constantly lags on all devices. User interface needs reworking as well across the site and app. All in all, this entire ordeal needs work. A lot of it.

  75. Jack Considine-avatar

    Worst app I've ever used, both on mobile and console. I made complaints years ago but the app is still the same. I get to watch about 5 minutes of a One Piece episode, then I get ads for about 90 seconds. At the end of the ads, the app will time out and I have to restart it, which makes me watch another 15 seconds of ads along with the 90 seconds of ads I just watched. I have to do this 1/2 per ep. It's obvious that Funimation is just screwing all of the people that don't pay for it. Absolute BS

  76. Evan Gerth-avatar

    The app works ok on my phone but is absolutely atrocious on my devices like my PS4 and SMART TV. Funimation consumes massively more amounts of data than any other streaming service and hardly functions in anything but PC. Even then there are times where the site just isn't functional either. They really need to get their act together and develop a more reliable user interface on ever platform.

  77. Kid.-avatar

    You guys seriously need to fix this app! The variety of anime is fantastic! On the other hand the screen freezing issue needs to stop. I just started a free trial and every 2 minutes there's adds. If you could resolve those issues it would be fantastic, you'd definitely get more subscribers and more pay.

  78. First on Racing day-avatar

    First on Racing day


    Crashes constantly. On your phone it will just freeze every 10 seconds and then have to rewind for it to play for 5 mins all to freeze again. Then on consoles the app will just buffer and buffer and never play. It's sad that I can practically bootleg every episode of dragon ball super with 0 issue but the actual streaming app nope. Fix the the app or is it all about the income? Or you just gonna give me a bandaid for a bullet wound and refuse to fix the 100s of the same complaints

  79. Johnnie Jefferson-avatar

    I love this app when it works. There are too many instances where it just flat out does not work. I feel that we pay enough money every month to have a well working app. No excuses for the amount of problems this app has and that's across the different platforms. Android, PS4, Fire Stick etc

  80. Amanda Stirnaman-avatar

    Amanda Stirnaman


    I love Funimation but not here. I can download the app for my tablet. Installed fine. No errors or anything. But it will not let me log into the app. How can I use a service I paid premium for if I can't use the app properly? I know use the site. But that's why the app seemed like a good idea so you don't have to use the website right???

  81. Tyler Bost-avatar

    I love this service, I will always have it. However the application (on every device) leaves something to be desired. It doesn't work like 6 hours out of the day, the info listed in it is usually incorrect, unless it's super popular. Even then though sometimes it's still wrong.

  82. Donovan Sargent-avatar

    Donovan Sargent


    Very hit and miss, sometimes things play fine, but every once in a while it will just up and stop loading anything. Load times are ridiculous, and when you do get it to load every other episode, it will crash. Not what I expected for an app I pay a subscription for. I pay this to get early access as most of these titles are available on other services but if this continues to crash and lag, I'll save myself the 10 bucks a month and wait the few extra days for shows to become available

  83. Brayan Lozano Fontes-avatar

    Brayan Lozano Fontes


    this is by far the worst streaming app i have ever used. literally the wierd free movie apps that come pre-installed on smart TVs work better than this load times are awful regardless of your actual internet speed, with pauses after literally every action you do (try to go back 10 seconds, you gotta wait 10 seconds for that to load in, wanna skip ahead a couple minutes, might be a couple minutes before that loads in). also riddles with bugs and crashes this is trash. the website is also bad.

  84. Jerry Vong-avatar

    I can't speak for everyone's experience using this as a streaming app, but as a digital copy streaming app it's abysmal. Almost every anime series I own on digital gets an error and never loads up the list of episodes. It seriously makes the app nearly and frustratingly useless, especially when you want to find a way to watch anime from them that you've owned or even download them offline.

  85. Anna Slade-avatar

    If watching a loading screen is your thing, then this is the app for you! While watching anime, sure the show *might* be ok, but what's better to watch than a loading screen! To make the experience as novel as possible, this will happen though the show intermittently to assure quality experiences. The best part is you can pay to enhance your experience and be stuck watching the loading screen in high definition! What a steal!

  86. Epic Gamer55515-avatar

    The video player fails to run, it repeats segments of the episode you've already seen, it buffers all the time, and the UI is horrible... if you're looking for anime just pirate it. Funimation is a joke and I feel insulted that the people behind this thought it was funny. Dont waste your time with this app.

  87. Dave-avatar

    i would give more stars. but major issues as a premium subscriber. 1 is that it locks up a lot when seeking on a video. 2) the download function doesnt always work well. I updated this review and added stars since some previous problems have been fixed. Still needs some new tweaks though. Constantly says unable to load when first starting up. New update: search doesn't work and unable to load getting more prevalent. This is my only video app with issues.

  88. Ben Thielen-avatar

    Where do I even start with this app? Funimation is a professional and highly profitable company. The fact that this app is so unbelievably broken and has been for years now is not only a disgrace but embarrassing. 1. Fix your glitchy and unplayable episodes! It should NEVER take an hour to watch 1 episode. 2. Update your interface! Make it easier to find and access series. Add to queue should actually add to my queue. I'd go on but Funimation doesn't care. I've emailed them about this years ago.

  89. Sindenky-avatar

    I have never in my life had to work so hard to get a service that I pay for to work properly. This app is so counter intuitive and anti-user friendly it's absolutely mind boggling. The content provided by Funimation is great, but I have used sketchy ass pirate sites that bombard me with ads that are better than this. Honestly I'm mover conferrable navigating an onslaught of ads and viruses than I am with navigating this app.

  90. Master Kenji-avatar

    Most shows have no cc, different episodes for different shows will say it's only in one language, some times be wrong entirely on what languages are available which is jarring going from japanese to an English only episode to suddenly japanese only episodes again. Constantly crashes or doesnt load on playstation and phone. Out of all the streaming service apps out there this one is the worst performance wise by far.

  91. Marina Van Eysinga-avatar

    One of the worst streaming apps I've ever used. It takes a long time to load even though my internet is fine. It won't always play videos, sometimes I need to try like 3 times before it will play. It doesn't work consistently with Chromecast. It also makes watching with subtitles a huge pain. They are in CC format, not proper subtitles. Clearly they expect you to watch in dub format. You don't get to make that choice for me funimation! This is only a few of the issues with it.

  92. Gilbert Dungo-avatar

    The selection is great, but the UI and casting options are a tad annoying. When casting you have to enable subtitles each episode and they only display in the white text in a black box, which can be obstructive to what's going on screen. There's also no next episode button which I didn't realize was a luxury of other apps. There's a lot of great potential here. Casting from a device is my main mode of display and if improvements are made to better the convenience it'll be on par with others.

  93. Matt Fig-avatar

    Slow start, slow loading, if watch on ur laptop thru the site the site forces u to back out of your "full screen" mode after every episode just to click to the next episode. Site freezes and crashes and so does the app... funimation i get it y'all... gotta make that dollar but holy smoke man make a quality app the very least ... a quality site

  94. Cody Mason-avatar

    Apps way too buggy. Video randomly stops, even the ads glitch and the video take a turn for rewinding audio then crashing. Lucky if you can watch 5minutes straight without a crash or video stop. I thought setting my video to low quality would help but it doesnt make a difference. Good shows sure! But not worth that kind of hassle/run around.

  95. Christopher Ruland-avatar

    Christopher Ruland


    This app used 6gb of data in the background while I wasn't using the app. Id highly recommend restricting the data on it. The streaming service is just ok. You'll see plenty of stalling and freezing and unless you pay for the service you'll have a very limited selection that will include adds.

  96. Thatguy cody-avatar

    I tried to watch My Hero Acidemia S4 EP3, and it gave me the option to watch it in English. And me not wanting to hear it in my language wanted to put it on. For some odd reason it went to Japanese (This was on my firestick). I went to my phone and it gave me the same option, so I did the same thing. And it kept going to Japanese. I don't know if this is a big or not.

  97. Matt W-avatar

    Cant access my digital copy of Code Geass movie, keep getting errors. App needs to be fixed, I'm really bothered I have a digital copy I cant watch. I did contact customer support and they just told me it is a known issue. This error has made the digital copy unwatchable since its release in February 2020. When will this be resolved so I can watch the digital copy I paid for?

    Awful experience. I just got the subscription. I paid. And after that I can't see anything anymore! Are you joking? I downloaded what I phisically own, so I assumed I could watch it properly and offline but nothing. All videos, streaming or not doesn't work anymore. The only app with this problem, so it is not the tablet. Ah I tried to log out and in and everything I downloaded disappeared. Is this app a joke? Fix it!

    It got good. So I got the app because it would be my only way to watch anime and I thought it was cool cuz it was for free but after 2 episodes it said I had to pay $7 to subscribe. And it wouldn't let me watch the other episodes until I paid. So you have to pay no matter what 😡 thare is no point in havening this app. I'm poor God damnit.

  100. Jackson Meehan-avatar

    This app just straight up sucks. I love the shows on it and how much it has. But the actual app itself is just annoying. It logs me out of the whole thing every time it's unable to connect. And that's another thing, everything else on my phone works on my wifi but this specific app for some reason. It's just sad to see such a big company have such a useless app.
