** Also with Website/{{Crunchyroll}}, since these two often compete with each other for exclusive streaming rights. The rivalry is made worse when Crunchyroll [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2016-07-01/crunchyroll-to-dub-release-anime-on-bd-dvd/.103876 announced they'll do home video releases and dub certain titles themselves]].

* NeverLiveItDown: Talk about their ''PrisonSchool'' dub and it will always be met with a remark about a 2-second-long Gamergate joke. Yikes.
* TheyJustDidntCare:
** [[https://twitter.com/NJ_/status/749692726975799296]] This Creator/{{Toonami}} slide that was presented at conventions in 2016. Not only does it highlight shows that aren't airing on Toonami anymore but it was also shown at Anime Boston which was right after they lost the rights to ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemistBrotherhood'' to ''Creator/AniplexUSA''.
** Similarly at CES 2016, Funimation showed [[https://twitter.com/NerdReactor/status/685291698469994496 this anime collage]] at their industry panel. Not only was the image the first thing that would show up when searing "anime collage" into Google but it also features characters from shows they didn't license and characters that don't originate from anime.

* BrokenBase: Broadcast dubs have been a very divisive among FUNimation followers. Some have welcomed them as a new business practice since it allows dub fans to watch popular airing shows without having to wait one or two years for a dub. Supporters have also been fond of FUNimation's decision to redo the dub for the blu-ray and DVD releases with the broadcast dub being a rough draft that allows the voice actors to get comfortable with the show. Others have been more critical towards them as the rushed schedule for recording a broadcast dub affects the overall quality with dubs feeling more "rushed" and since availability is more desirable FUNimation is limited to what talents they can use and many of the same voice actors appear in these dubs.

** In their re-release for ''Anime/{{Escaflowne}}'', they were originally going to make the original dub exclusive to the collector's edition, but as of June 2016 have made it available on all versions of the release.

** Their re-release of ''Anime/{{Escaflowne}}'' which would include a new English dub. Some people are okay with this since it's a good way to breathe fresh life into the series and give it a more up to date dub, while others were fine with the original dub as it was and would have preferred a re-release that exclusively included the original Ocean Studios dub.

* GrowingTheBeard: The English dub for ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' is often considered by many fans to be what put Funimation on the map. This was what made fans want to see more out of Funimation and established most of their standards in English dubbing anime as of now.

* AuthorsSavingThrow:
** The original video release of ''Manga/{{Sankarea}}'' included the censored TV broadcast instead of the uncensored version on the Japanese home video release. In 2015, FUNimation re-released the series on home video with the uncensored version intact and the censored version has since been discontinued.
** Averted with the release of ''LightNovel/BenTo''. FUNimation almost included the censored version in the home video release but caught on to this before release date. As such the release was moved from summer 2014 to early 2015.
