* These guys started off as a small NoBudget studio that had to depend on [[Creator/SabanEntertainment bigger]] [[Creator/TheOceanGroup companies]] just to function at first, and when they went independent their voice cast was just a bunch of unknown rookies. Nowadays, they're essentially '''the epitome of Awesome''' for fans of anime in America, having the most titles, the most quality in their dubs, the highest track record, and widest appreciation for the fans than any other anime company in the States. And those unknown rookies? They're now some of the biggest names in anime dubbing!
** They not only gave ''Manga/OnePiece'' a far superior dub than when Creator/FourKidsEntertainment had it... they went so far as to ''go back to Episode 01 and redub everything with the new cast members, steamrolling anything [=4Kids=] did! And they caught up, and are now moving further in the show!'' Awesome.
* Or how about when Funimation announced that they licensed ''{{Hellsing}}'' Ultimate OVA 8 and will bring back the original cast and crew for the 5-8 dubs?
** Now episodes 5-8 have been dubbed with the exact same cast and crew as before! And it was awesome!
* Their current working relationship with Creator/{{Toonami}}; not only did they allow Creator/AdultSwim the rights to air their classic anime like ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' and ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' for free during their AprilFoolsDay return, Funimation has also been working hand and hand with the network licensing their shows to air. Given that the Toonami block is a labor of love running on a shoestring budget, this says a lot.
* Funimation went above and beyond with ''Anime/BlazBlueAlterMemory'', [[RoleReprisal getting almost every member of the original dub cast for the games to reprise their respective roles]]. Creator/PatrickSeitz (the voice of Ragna and ADR director) and Creator/TravisWillingham (Relius) are both Funimation alumni, so their return to their roles was a given; but the cast are all LA-based, and far and few between are the times when LA actors travel to Dallas for VA work. Truly amazing!
* After a backlash from New World Cinemas for no intention for releasing ''Film/ShinGodzilla'', Funimation managed to secure the license for the film themselves, allowing for the film to be released in the US!
* Broadcast dubs have to be done at break-necks speeds. Dubs that not only need to go through the usual process of legal acquisitions, translating, script-writing, dubbing, and editing, but Funimation has to do this within the span of ''4 weeks after the episodes premiere in Japan'', to combat illegally pirated streaming! Funimation introduced the idea in 2014, picked up ''several'' brand new titles ''every season'', and released the dubs on their site, and are still doing them today!! So far no reports of breakdowns have been announced!!
* Whenever Funimation license rescues a show that has been lost in license limbo for years it generally falls into this.
** Funimation's announcements at Anime Expo 2013 are the most notable example. Following the closure of Bandai, many fan favorites like ''Franchise/CodeGeass'' and ''LightNovel/TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya'' were no longer legally available for Western anime fans. However at their industry panel that year they announced that they would be license rescuing some of Bandai's lost titles including the aforementioned titles as well as ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', ''Anime/WolfsRain'', and ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell''.
** As of recently their license rescue for ''{{Manga/Nichijou}}'' which Bandai briefly had the license for before shutting operations and was on Crunchyroll for a while but disappeared from their catalog. Funimation not only planned to put the title back on legal streaming but even give it the long-deserving home video release.
