Funimation started in 1994, and has since been the most successful anime distributor still around in 2019.
Many others are out of business.
Anime shows like Dragon Ball Z, not to mention the “dubs” produced for them are responsible for anime’s growth on a worldwide scale.
So there’s a lot to thank Funimation for.
But that aside – the question remains: which countries use Funimation the most?
And where is it the most popular online?
That’s what we’ll be sharing today.
If your country doesn’t show up, leave it in the comments.
25 Countries Where Funimation Is Popular (According To Google):
1. United States
This shouldn’t be surprising, considering Funimation operates out the USA. And a majority of the US has “the best” coverage of anime shows.
Especially when it comes to licensing restrictions.
2. Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is #2 for the top 25 countries where Funimation is popular. Which might surprise.
Canada is up 3rd, which makes a lot of sense.
For the first time – Philippines isn’t #1, and in this case it makes sense since Funimation is predominantly American for anime coverage.
8. New Zealand
10. United Kingdom
The UK comes in at 10th. Making it more popular than Crunchyroll.
Ireland, naturally next to the UK.
14. South Africa
17. United Arab Emirates
And last – Hungary!
