** Anything regarding the ''Franchise/DragonBall'' franchise is bound to cause debate among the fandom. Be it debates over whether the original ''Dragon Ball Z'' dub has aged well or not, if the Kai dub is the superior version, or if Bruce Falconer should return to score Super or if Funimation firing him was one of the best things to happen to the franchise. If not debates than backlash will certainly ensue. Controversies have included voice actors such as Creator/DameonClarke, Creator/LauraBailey, and Meredith McCoy being unable to reprise their roles for some installments, the disastrous orange brick DVD-releases, Kai's initial television airing being on Disney XD, the fact that it took Funimation three years to license the final chapters of Kai, and not announcing the license for Super until late 2016 despite voice actors and staff members hinting at the license for over a year.

* GrowingTheBeard: The English dub for ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' is often considered by many fans to be what first perked genuine interest in Funimation, after their dub of ''Dragon Ball Z'' gave them a rather sour reputation for quite a while. After ''FMA'', anime fans wanted to see more out of Funimation, who via the dub established most of their current standards in English dubbing.

* GrowingTheBeard: Their English dub of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' was the start of them gaining respect; many were worried they would make massive changes like they did with ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. They were pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn't massively altered even on television. But they still had detractors even then. Fortunately...

After ''FMA'', anime fans wanted to see more out of Funimation, who via the dub established most of their current standards in English dubbing.

** After reciving a lot of complains about the english dub of VisualNovel/DanganRonpa for replacing everyone character's voices from the game with the exception of Naegi[[note]]Granted they have the rights of the anime before the game came out and the reason why Bryce Papenbrook was able to reprise his role was because he was working on Manga/AttackOnTitan at the time[[/note]] they have decided to bring most of the dub cast of VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 for the dub of Anime/DanganRonpa3 with only Gundham, Akane, Fuyuhiko, Ibuki, Peko and the ultimate imposter not coming back. Also, for apologizing they brought back Kaiji Tang and Erin Frizgerald sadly not for RoleReprisal but at least giving them important roles.

** Their Broadcast dub of ''Manga/PrisonSchool'' has recieved a lot of backlash for including a [=GamerGate=] line[[note]] which can be seen as hypocritical since many anti [=GamerGaters=] would hate the anime for using sex and the female body as titilation[[/note]] so they replace it with a more accurate line for the DVD/Blu-Ray release.

** The re-release for ''Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne'' was surrounded by controversy right from the beginning. The fact that the re-dub was being crowd-funded via Kickstarter created issue since many fans feel that Funimation has enough money and resources to do a re-dub without backing from fans. There was also debate over whether or not ''Escaflowne'' needed a new dub. Either you feel that the old dub has aged well and had more creative casting choices than what Funimation ended up announcing or since it's an old dub, the show needed a new dub to help it age better. Whether or not Funimation should have gotten Ocean to handle the re-dub was an entirely different topic of debate all together.

Add in Funimation almost making the Ocean dub a backer-exclusive award, the insane shipping cost of the limited edition to the United Kingdom, and even after the release backers not receiving some rewards and the retail version using standard Blu-ray cases instead of the advertised clear ones, this is one of the most controversial moves Funimation has made.

* CrackIsCheaper: Thanks to certain series' rights expiring (and thus, falling out of print), some series now sell for outrageous prices, or are [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes simply not available at all.]] ''Manga/{{Karin}}'' is one such example.
