Funimation brief backgruond

Funimation is an American entertainment company that specializes in the dubbing and distribution of foreign content, mostly anime. The company is based in Flower Mound, Texas, and the studio is one of the leading distributors of anime and other foreign entertainment properties in North America.

The company was founded on May 9, 1994, by Fukunaga and his wife Cindy, and named it FUNimation Productions. The initial funding was provided by Daniel Cocanougher. After eleven years, FUNimation Productions was acquired by Navarre Corporation and was renamed to FUNimation Entertainment.

The ownership of the company has since been transferred several more times until it was finally acquired by Sony Pictures Television on October 27, 2017. Its name now is simply Funimation and is the leading entertainment company in terms of dubbing and distribution of animes.

I am a university teacher who can't get enough of anime and manga. My class' group names are based on my favorite characters, especially from One Piece. I read manga or watch anime every chance I have. I started reading manga just a few years back and I was hooked the first day. I usually follow fan pages and am consistently given a Top Fan Badge. I also love baking and cake decorating and trying to make anime-themed cake designs.
