Funimation is one of the biggest names in anime outside of Japan. Starting today, anime fans can download the new Funimation app on the Nintendo Switch to watch their favorite anime on the go or from their couch. This will be the only dedicated anime app and the second streaming app on the Nintendo Switch. Kaliel Roberts of Funimation said:
We will always go where the community wants their anime, and Funimation is 100% committed to listening to and servicing fans on every platform. When Nintendo Switch was a possibility in front of us, we were a resounding ‘absolutely’ with the opportunity to further serve fans. Our teams approached the partnership with a shared goal to create a uniquely engaging app experience built for anime fans. That passionate approach paid off with a compelling and immersive touchpoint that was purpose-built specifically for our audience.
While I think it’s nice for the Switch to be getting more media apps, I have had really bad experiences with Funimation’s interfaces. The actual content is great. They have so many incredible anime you can watch. Unfortunately, I’ve had a lot of problems which make it hard for me to personally get excited for this. What will you be watching on your Nintendo Switch?
