        Spanish and Portuguese Subs and Dubs Come to Funimation!

        You’ve asked and we’ve listened! Today, we’re SO excited to announce that Spanish and Portuguese subbed and dubbed anime content is coming to Funimation in English-speaking territories!

        Funimation recently launched in Mexico and Brazil as part of our expansion into Latin America, and with it came the announcement that a number of shows, including My Hero Academia, Tokyo Ghoul, Assassination Classroom and Attack on Titan, would be receiving Spanish and Portuguese language dubs.

        That’s just some of the new content you can expect on Funimation! There’s also plenty of Spanish and Portuguese subbed content on its way, including favorites like Fruits Basket, Cowboy Bebop, Overlord and more.

        Starting February 3, that content will be available in all of our English-speaking territories as well, bringing even more anime to fans around the world.

          Funimation Sued in Class-Action Lawsuit for Allegations of Violating Americans with Disabilities Act

          Jenisa Angeles, a legally blind person, filed a class-action lawsuit against Funimation Global Group, LLC on January 13 on behalf of herself "and all others similarly situated" alleging that Funimation's website violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. The lawsuit was filed in the District Court of the Southern District of New York.

          The lawsuit claims that Funimation has failed "to design, construct, maintain, and operate its website to be fully accessible to and independently usable by [Angeles] and other blind or visually-impaired people," which it claims is a violation of her rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The website referred to in the lawsuit is specifically the "shop.funimation.com" website.

          The lawsuit states that Angeles is "a visually-impaired and legally blind person, who cannot use a computer without the assistance of screen-reading software," and is proficient at using the "NonVisual Desktop Access" screen-reading software. Angeles reportedly visited the "shop.funimation.com" website on multiple occasions (including in January) to make a purchase, but was "denied a shopping experience similar to that of a sighted individual due to the website's lack of a variety of features and accommodations, which effectively barred [her] from being able to determine what specific products were offered for sale."

          Specifically, the lawsuit claims that features on the site lacked alt. text and failed to "Add a label element or title attribute for each field." Additionally, the lawsuit stated pages on the site contained the same title elements and the site contained broken links. The lawsuit states that Funimation has therefore "engaged in acts of intentional discrimination."

          The lawsuit asks for a permanent injunction that requires Funimation to "retain a qualified consultant acceptable to" Angeles to assist Funimation to comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) for its website. The World Wide Web Consortium maintains the WCAG.
