** Averted with [[Manga/OnePiece One Piece]] upon being picked up. Justified since no one really wanted the cast from [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment the people that used to dub it]] to come back anyway. This was met with countless [[Main/SarcasmMode backlash]].

* MoneyDearBoy: The reason why their best actors only appear to stick around at Funimation for a handful of years. The most popular actors in the dub of FullMetalAlchemist are all now in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, dubbing anime pays very little compared to other acting jobs, and most like to reach for union jobs instead of Funimation's non-union ones.

In an effort to counter {{fansub}}s, they make a number of their titles available for free [[http://www.funimation.com/videos on their website]] (as well as [[http://www.youtube.com/user/FUNimation YouTube]]), including new acquisitions that have never been sold legally in the United States before, like ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' and the original ''Anime/CaptainHarlock'' series. They have also begun a program to carry shows on their video site a few days after they air in Japan; they have done this with ''Manga/CorpsePrincess'' and ''[[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid]]'' and are now doing this with newer ''Creator/NoitaminA'' series and episodes of ''Manga/OnePiece''. Unfortunately, they only have distribution rights for the USA and Canada for any of these, and have thus prevented people outside North America from watching those shows on their own website. This is....[[{{Understatement}} less]] [[{{NoExportForYou}} awesome]].

Funimation, previously known as [=FUNimation=] Productions and [=FUNimation=] Entertainment, is an anime dubbing and distribution company currently based in Flower Mound, Texas (a suburb of the [[UsefulNotes/DFWMetroplex Dallas[=/=]Fort Worth Metroplex]]). The company rose to prominence by acquiring the rights to the popular anime title ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', its predecessor series ''Manga/DragonBall'' and its sequel series ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' as a way to survive [[TheNineties the early 1990s]] minor recession. By 1999, they were able to get widespread television exposure via Creator/CartoonNetwork and the ''Dragon Ball'' phenomenon belatedly yet quickly grew in the United States as it had elsewhere (to the point that Funimation openly describes itself as "the house that ''Dragonball'' built". Two previous attempts by Funimation to release ''Dragon Ball'' to network television had previously been cancelled, before the series and the company found success on Cartoon Network. Over time, it's found success with other anime like the two ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' series and ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''.
