[=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''.

From the early 1990s to the 2000s, [=FUNimation=] was a respectably sized anime distributor but not considered one of the "Big Three" - which (depending on who you ask) were ADV, Geneon, and Bandai. The North American anime distributors, unfortunately, then went through a classic boom and bust cycle (like the video game industry in 1983 and comic book industry in 1993). It started with peak expansion in 2004-2005, which soon led to over-expansion, followed by the crash of 2008. Each of the Big Three had invested heavily in these expansion efforts to buy up most of the new titles, so they were hit the hardest. Geneon shut down in September 2007, and for the next full year, each week brought news of a new shutdown or cancelled project. Bandai also dwindled away, given that its parent company in Japan basically gave up on the North American market after realizing that they could never hope to sell anime there at the same prices they did in Japan (and ultimately Bandai shut down American operations in 2012). ADV dwindled away to almost nothing but clung to life for a while, with the meager remnants later reorganizing into other companies. When the dust settled, by 2009 [=FUNimation=] was left as the only truly large and functional major anime distributor in North America. It bought up titles from the closed companies at fire sale prices, and soon came to dominate the North American anime market: the saying became that other companies can only buy licenses that [=FUNimation=] had passed on after deeming them not worth the investment. Circa the New Tens, the only other large distributors are (more or less) Viz Media (which is also a major manga distributor) and Sentai Filmworks (a successor company for the remnants of ADV), but they used to have a small fraction of the market share that [=FUNimation=] enjoys. Yet Sentai and newcomer Aniplex of America have risen tremendously and FUNi's own share of the market and titles have decreased significantly. Also Crunchyroll, Nozomi, and Discotek have also chipped away at FUNi's monopoly. However it's still the leading distributor of anime in the U.S.

At the end of 2008, [=FUNimation=] went on a licensing binge called "New Show A-Go-Go!", during which they announced even more Creator/{{Geneon}} titles (such as ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo''), as well as new titles such as ''Manga/SoulEater'' and the ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' films.

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 awesome]].

In the early years, [=FUNimation=] had a poor reputation amongst many anime fans. This was largely due to their only license at the time, ''Dragon Ball'', being heavily altered and censored. Today, the company is now held in ''very'' high regard for their excellent staff and being faithful to their properties. Part of their marketing strategy is that they actually listen to the fans and take their suggestions into account, which does work. ''Dragon Ball'' gradually became more faithful to the original and they have overall created a new standard in [[SuperlativeDubbing the proper English dubbing of anime]]. They graciously make most of their titles available in full on their website, with links to which DVD they're on so they may be purchased. They also ran their own digital cable channel, which was the only linear anime-exclusive, television network (before they ended their partnership with channel owner Olympusat, who subsequently retooled the channel as TOKU). This all happened amidst an economic recession that shrunk the dubbing industry, which results in gaining a higher percentage of anime statewide than other studios. Because of their insane amount of titles, and the somewhat limited budget for dubs, 95% of the time they have to use the same actors who live in the area, leading to severe RelationshipVoiceActor situations in all their shows, and who have gained growing popularity among fans.

[=FUNimation=] currently holds the rights for almost all Creator/{{GONZO}} properties[[note]] (exceptions: ''VideoGame/GateKeepers'' and ''Anime/GateKeepers21'' (Creator/{{Geneon}}); ''Anime/BlueSubmarineNo6'' (Creator/DiscotekMedia); ''Melty Lancer'', ''Franchise/SentouYouseiYukikaze'' (Creator/BandaiEntertainment); ''Anime/{{Gravion}}'', ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeSigma6'', ''Anime/FinalFantasyUnlimited'', ''Zaion I Wish You Were Here'', ''Manga/SpecialA'' (Creator/ADVFilms and its descendants); ''Manga/RealBoutHighSchool'' (Creator/{{Tokyopop}}), and others that remain unlicensed)[[/note]], and they have been releasing them in very appealing boxed sets with excellent production values and many extras (examples include their releases of ''Anime/AfroSamurai'' and ''Anime/SpeedGrapher''). They also have an imprint of sorts called ''The Viridian Collection'', which they have designed as a sort of CriterionCollection for high-profile anime releases, such as ''Anime/SamuraiSeven'', ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'' and ''Manga/DesertPunk''. These releases are budget priced, so it's very easy to amass a relatively large collection of good anime without breaking your pockets. ''S.A.V.E. Edition'', where you can get a complete series for at most $30, takes this concept one step further. [=FUNimation=] is currently in talks to possibly re-license titles that Creator/BandaiEntertainment had before they ceased producing anything themselves, which could result in a mass acquisition very similar to GONZO.

Has done some interesting things regarding [=DVDs=], especially involving ''Dragon Ball'', such as starting a redubbed DVD series called the "Ultimate Uncut" Edition, only to abruptly drop that and subsequently announce new "Remastered" Season Box Sets of the entire series, cropped to widescreen. Naturally, many fans weren't impressed with the cropping, and the so-called Orange Boxes became the best selling anime boxsets on DVD by far. Due in part to purist backlash over the cropping in the Orange Boxes, [=FUNimation=] announced they had finally acquired the Super-High Quality Dragon Boxes from Japan, with the English dub remixed so that it retains the original background music, and Japanese voices selected by default for all those hardcore fans that didn't buy into the widescreen remasters. The Dragon Box releases are, as of 2015, out of print, and now command the outrageous price of the blood of your first born child.

In October 2011, it was announced at New York Comic Con that [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-10-14/funimation-niconico-to-jointly-license-anime [=FUNimation=] and Nico Nico formed a joint partnership for streaming and home video releases]]. The partnership establishes a joint venture, known as "Funico", where Nico Nico handles the online streaming while [=FUNimation=] handles the home video distribution.

[=FUNimation=] also releases ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' on DVD, in addition to a small selection of live-action films made or filmed in Japan.

When Creator/{{Toonami}} was revived in May 2012 onward, most of the block's new premieres are from [=FUNimation=], which has developed a close business relationship with the Williams Street crew.

On June 23rd, 2015, it was announced that Funimation entered a multi year deal with [[Creator/{{Universal}} Universal Studios Home Entertainment]], in which it will manage the distribution of all Funimation DVD and Blu-ray releases.

!!Tropes relating to [=FUNimation=]:

* AnimeAccentAbsence: Occasionally averted, as in ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' and ''[[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Hetalia]]''.
* CompletelyDifferentTitle: Does this for quite a few shows. For example, ''[[Manga/SetoNoHanayome The Inland Sea Bride]]'' became ''Manga/MyBrideIsAMermaid''.
* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: This is [=FUNimation=]'s official stance and they encourage their fans to obtain anime through legal means. In fact, they even take legal action either through C&D letters to torrenters and fansubbers, or [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-01-25/funimation-sues-1337-bittorrent-users-over-one-piece sue a large number of BiTorrent users over downloading One Piece episodes]]. They even take down fansub videos of many anime titles in Website/{{YouTube}}, ''even in titles they do not directly own'' (e.g. ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' and ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays''). In fact, they are pretty much the policeman of the anime industry.
** Their anti-piracy and fansub stance is pretty much the reason why [[ScandalGate they briefly lost simulcast rights for Fractale]]. Unlike Website/AnimeNewsNetwork where they got ''LightNovel/{{Oreimo}}'' back within several weeks, [=FUNimation=] managed to get the ''Anime/{{Fractale}}'' simulcast back ''within a few days.''
%%* EverythingIsBigInTexas
* {{Fanservice}}: According to a [=FUNimation=] representative as well as many of the [=FUNimation=] voice actors, some of the highest selling shows happen to be ones with heavy fanservice (along with the said popular {{shonen}} titles like ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' and ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''), much to the very annoyance of the Anime News Network editors who are quite critical of this. It wouldn't [[LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts be a]] [[LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties surprise]] [[Manga/BGataHKei with]] [[VisualNovel/ChaosHead the]] [[Manga/RosarioToVampire shows]] [[Anime/IsThisAZombie they've]] [[Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund licensed]].
** This is most apparent with their release of ''{{Sekirei}}'', whose tagline is "Boobies for the win!".
* FriendlyRivalry: To the Houston based Creator/SentaiFilmworks[=/=]Creator/ADVFilms. Despite the said infamous lawsuit mentioned above, their respective representatives and public relations managers like to tease each other through various social media websites and some are good friends with each other. Even some of the Houston based voice actor talents have worked with Funimation from time to time and vice versa with the Dallas based talents in rare extent.[[note]]It should noted that many of the voice actors are freelancers or have done theater acting or web designers and they aren't exactly bound to work with a single company[[/note]].
** In this [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anncast/2013-12-13 ANNCast]], it was revealed that Funimation representatives actually approve of Creator/VIZMedia's online survey.
* GagDub: While most of [=FUNimation's=] dubs attempt to stay reasonably faithful to their source material, some comedy series, such as ''Manga/CrayonShinChan'', ''Manga/SgtFrog'', and ''[[Manga/AxisPowersHetalia Hetalia]]'', receive this treatment.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Many veteran [=FUNimation=] voice actors tend to have this; Creator/LauraBailey, Creator/VicMignogna, Creator/TroyBaker, Creator/KyleHebert, Creator/JMichaelTatum, Creator/BrinaPalencia, Creator/ToddHaberkorn and Creator/LuciChristian deserve special mention.
** This is played with a little though. Some voice actors have stated that many of them are not specialized to be this, because it's not [=FUNimation's=] goal.
* MultipleDemographicAppeal: They license various titles that appeal to different demographics, not just the popular {{shonen}} shows.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: Because of the focus on capturing the emotion and personality of the character, it would not be a surprise for some [=FUNimation=] voice actors to be completely good at the character archetypes they are typecast into.
* RoleReprisal: They do their level best to keep the dubbing of properties they acquire from other dubbing studios as consistent as possible. Cases in point: ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' retained the original voice actors for most principal characters such as [[Creator/SpikeSpencer Shinji]] and [[Creator/TiffanyGrant Asuka]], while the episodes of ''[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Hellsing Ultimate]]'' they dubbed after Geneon's closure maintains all of the original voice actors for the series, including Creator/CrispinFreeman as Alucard.
* UsefulNotes/SafeHarbor: Their TV channel was on non-basic cable and was nowhere near as popular as the bigger cable channels. So ''every hour of the day'' was safe from censoring from the United States' FCC, with curses left intact. The only censored word is "fuck", and the only blurred or blocked visual elements that appear are those that were left in the Japanese versions.
* {{Scandalgate}}: Fractalegate, though not as severe as LightNovel/{{Oreimo}}gate.
* ShonenDemographic: The vast majority of their titles.
* ViewersAreGeniuses: They acquired and dubbed ''Manga/XxxHolic'' and ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' at the same time because they knew characters crossed over into the other show at certain points, thus making sure no actor would voice more than one character in either show, lest fans would accuse them of casting two actors for the same character. This was beneficial to them when dubbing the ''Tsubasa'' OVA and each of their movies, where Watanuki, the black Mokona, and Yuuko have important roles.
