** With fellow Texas Anime Licencor, Creator/SentaiFilmworks. A lot of the rival stemmed from the former company, ADV Films, in which fans would debate which Licencor would produce the higher quality dub, and had the better direction. More recently, ever since Sentai seemingly became partners with Amazon's streaming service, ''Strike'', in response to Funimation's partnership with Crunchyroll, this turned more into a rivalry over which company deserves to license a potential anime more.

** Since their Business Partnership with Crunchyroll, there has been accusations of whether or not Funimation is "monopolizing" the English Dub scene. Their output has increased rapidly since then.

Of course, not long after, Creator/{{Netflix}} and [[Creator/AmazonStudios Amazon]] started to increase their acquisitions of anime, [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor opening an entirely different bag of worms]] with the Anime Community.

* HilariousInHindsight: When the first season of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' aired, Funi's website was one of the many places that streamed the series, and as a result, MyAnimeList listed Funi as having licensed the series.

* DirectedByCastMember | WrittenByCasstMember: Part of the reason Funimation can afford to pay their voice actors less compared to companies in LA is that many of their regulars tend to also double in other roles such as the ADR or script writer.

** Or Latin Americans Hate Funimation. Due to their refusal to license outside North America or any non-English regions and their continuous region-locks, people in Latin America have very bad comments of the company.

* NoDubForYou: Almost always averted. Almost all of their licensed retail titles have English dubs, but the only retail release title as of current is ''LightNovel/OniAi''. Ever since then, they have been releasing more titles with sub-only releases (mainly on shows that either had low streaming numbers or incredibly niche shows), but Funimation encourage their fans to watch legal streams to help increase the chances for an anime getting a dub.
** As of 2016, Funimation has began releasing subtitle only releases more frequently following ''LightNovel/OniAi''. Since the amount of shows they've licensed in the past few years has drastically increased, not all of the shows that they pick up are going to gain superb streaming numbers. As such some of their more obscure titles such as ''Shounen Hollywood'', and ''Anime/YattermanNight'' have been released subtitle only as they were series with low streaming numbers that wouldn't have been marketable for an English dub release. Also, like Creator/AniplexUSA, they are least likely to do dubbed re-releases for sub-only shows.

** 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, though given the previously mentioned series, it's also safe to say it solidified their beard-growing. After ''FMA'', anime fans wanted to see more out of Funimation, who via the dub established most of their current standards in English dubbing.
