This app is really buggy when it comes to video playback, always get an annoying buffering thing that makes it so I can’t change settings like captions. Funimation’s list of anime (and exclusives) however are the main reason for the likability of the app. Literally 70% of everything here is free, even some exclusive licensed content. TL;DR app is really buggy but Funimation has a lot of good shows so it deserves a 3 star rating.
If I watch an episode a loading screen pops up on my screen which prevents me from pausing, fast forwarding, and rewinding.
I love the anime’s this app has, but I have one consistent problem. Whenever I try to open a video, the video plays, but there is a loading circle in the middle of the screen that just keeps going and going, not going away. I have to keep restarting and restarting the show, until after at least 20 tries it finally goes away. I watch through the full episode with no problems. Then, when I move to the next one, the loading circle is there again!! Please fix this.
This is dumb why do I have to go all the way to my account in the funimation website and log in to my account to enable mature content? I have tried, but I’ve forgotten my password to my account and have tried resetting it via email. Whenever I click the button to reset my password it leads me to the funimation app and says “This link could not be opened at this time.” So basically, I can’t watch shows that I want to watch like samurai champloo because of this stupid setting. This app is hot garbage.
When I was done watching one of the episodes on the og dragon ball their was a part of it where I had to subscribe to it so I thought nothing of it so I started watching the next episode and it made it permanently Japanese and I was pretty mad about it. Another this is that when I go on another anime and the ad pops up I don’t think any thing of it but then when The episode starts a whole other ad just start while I’m watching it and the anime I was watching before starts too please fix this bug but other that that it’s great
The service is unique. Having your favorite shows at your disposal is amazing. Thank you for that! Today is my last day of the service because I am tired of dealing with the issues presented every time I want to watch. Episodes disappear, language options change randomly and it takes a lot of logging off and Deleting and reinstalling to get it to work. During some late nights I just quit all together. It is so cumbersome that it has become easier to just browse for Russian websites and watch episodes there. I’m out!! Best of luck as you try to fix your apps. Update: I have come to realize for those who stay with Funimation, the least buggy experience is using a browser even with a cell phone.
This app is usually great. I have used it for about a year and I have not experienced any of the menu/UI/glitch problems that other people have reported. I only have 2 complaints. 1) I have to turn on subtitles at the beginning of every episode - not matter what I've chosen in settings. This isn't a huge deal to me since there's always the 10-second funimation intro where I have time to change it. But I shouldn't have to change it in the first place. The other complaint is 2) sometimes, their servers are WAYYY too slow and take wayyy too long to load the video. This happens sometimes when I can watch videos on other websites just fine - so it's not my internet. Doesn't happen that often, but on the occasion that it does happen, it's clear that their servers could be better.
it’s a great app but when will the last two episodes of my hero academia be dubbed??
When I try watching a movie the loading symbol was still there it was bugging me but I got used to it great app btw
I tried and to remove the block on the mature content but every time I do it I can’t watch anything that is restricted I need some help and the customer support doesn’t even help you.
