This trusted name in anime offers a streaming service that’s definitely worth it for genre fans.

If you’re an anime fan, you know that getting access to your favorite series can be a struggle. But thanks to streaming services like Funimation, that’s no longer the case. The platform hosts a wide variety of anime content as well as an online store, acting as a one-stop shop for dedicated anime enthusiasts.

What is Funimation?

For over 25 years, Funimation has been an anime market leader, serving a passionate fan community. The company delivers anime content across television, feature films, events, retail, merchandise and, of course, the Funimation subscription app.

Funimation offers a streaming video service specializing in anime, with a focus on dubbed content. It delivers speedy dubbing and hosts an impressive collection of dubbed content for those who don’t enjoy subtitles, though subtitled content is available on the service as well.

How much does Funimation cost?

Funimation allows you to watch a limited amount of content for free, with ads. All you need to do is sign up with an email address and you’ll be good to go. However, if you want access to the entire library and better features, you’ll need to get a premium plan.

The service offers three premium subscription plans. The basic Premium plan costs US$5.99 a month or US$59.99 a year and gives you ad-free access to the entire Funimation library when and where available with two simultaneous streams.

Premium Plus costs US$7.99 a month or US$79.99 a year and supports five simultaneous streams. It also lets you download content on mobile devices to watch offline. Plus, you can gain access to member-only events, sales and deals, as well as free shipping for orders over US$20.

Finally, Premium Plus Ultra costs US$99.99 a year and, in addition to everything you get with Premium Plus, it also includes two free rentals per year, free shipping on all orders and an annual anniversary gift.
