ANN Review - Witch Hunter Robin DVD

I thought at first that would be a conflict ,but sounds like Hulu only wants stuff that would be in the more mainstream interest .

Some people can’t read is what I am getting from those tweets ?


Certainly not hard to get the point from these tweets.


Alternate take, the user base wants all of Funimation’s catalog on Hulu. Perhaps they’re tired of paying for multiple services.

Hulu’s plan is to get more than 20 seasons per year of new Japanese anime series simulcast, plus dubbed versions, said Lisa Holme, Hulu’s VP of content acquisition.

Wow, Japan has 20 seasons per year? Shoot, here I am with only a paltry 4 :rofl: :wink:

Makes sense to me. I see Funimation take flak for their apps & interface being subpar & not available on every streaming device under the sun, so it could benefit them to stop tossing money away trying to reinvent the wheel that Hulu already has rolling.

From the streamer standpoint, Hulu is $8/month. The Hulu that everyone wants, the ad-free version, is $12/month. Funimation is $6/month, more than enough to cover the upgrade.

Funimation President: ‘We Tried to Renew Deal with Crunchyroll’

posted on 2018-12-14 15:45 EST by Kim Morrissy
Gen Fukunaga also explains why he believes Funimation’s deal with Hulu “makes sense”


That’s misleading, it should read We tried to renegotiate the deal with Crunchyroll


We will have to see where Sony takes them and what goes on with the Hulu deal . Gen is good at spinning things to suit what sounds like success and that it was no fault of Funimation .

SBY 2202 Part 1 LE
DitF Part 1 LE

Interesting to note that Death March and Invisible Victory are LE’s only


Looking at:

  • My Hero Academia Two Heroes
  • Ultimate Otaku Teacher Complete Series Blu-Ray

Yeah…had to slam on the brakes upon seeing that. Might be open to Invisible Victory at some point though. I want to complete the collection.


I’m still a bit steamed over how Funimation had horrid Quality Assurance on the original LE of this and just swept it under the rug. I’m not surprised that it is an Essentials, because if more folks had bought it, Funi would’ve addressed the problem?

I vaguely remember seeing this one subbed years ago. Sure looks like it hails from a better era, where on-disc extras were a thing though. :+1:


…going forward the two companies will bid separately for exclusive streaming rights for the sub and dub releases. “That’s important for Sony to get that exclusivity…

Sounds like another time where everyone loses. Exclusives are awful, bidding wars among licensors are awful, it sure sounds like we’ve been down this road before.


Buy :
Star Blazers Space Battleship Yamato 2202 Part 1 Limited Edition

DARLING In The FRANXX Part 1 Limited Edition

Maybe :
Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory
Not sure as I’d rather get a regular or essentials collection to match my Blu-rays .
