If you read the FAQ like I said to, you would see that THEY said nothing changes on their end. The ONLY change is they have a new parent company who owns majority stake now. That's it. Nothing else. It is very easy to deduce that things like video quality, streaming quality, and the like will not be affected, nor will the shows Funimation picks up to Simuldub be affected. They still make all their own decisions and retain their current staff and company structure including right up to the CEO and back down to the voice actors and such.

 

So relax. It's not doomsday for anime. It just means its reach goes further now.

Basically Funimation now has even more resources at their disposal. Meaning they should be able to do more now then what they have in the past. But we shall see where things go.

With Sony taking the majority of the shares, why not let Funimation make animes possibly from PS4 exclusives?

I have no idea what you're even asking here.

Make a Horizon: Zero Dawn anime?

I'm confused.

But Funimation is not an animation studio.

If they did starting producing original titles, it wouldnt be considered anime.

Considering the track record if recent Sony movies, that is not a great idea.

That was obviously sarcasm that went over your head.

I wonder if this could be the catalyst for introducing old anime to the new generation?
