Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony buys Funimation for $143 million

I am surprised Funimation was valued so low. That price is a steal.

This is an interesting purchase I must say... wonder if Sony will want to turn some of their gaming IP's into anime shows... Gravity Rush anime anyone? :o

That actually already exists!

Wait, what? Why am I only just hearing of this?! :o 

TO GOOGLE!



A good smart acquisition, as long as they utilize it well.



I trust Sony with nothing except games. Just look how poorly they manage their Film department.

I agree on this one.

Their movie and animation studios showed me the worst from them. 

Though, I don't have much opinion when it comes to their music department, I mean they do use copyrights a lot on Youtube, but hey, that's not new.

Thats great, i think. But i have important question.
Who know it ????

1. How "big / famous" is "Funimation"?

2. How much revenue / profit does Funimation have in the year?

3. Funimation ... is there also in Japan? Or only in USA?

4. Sony buys funimation. What does it bring to us / what does it mean?

5. I've heard that even more anime games on PlayStation 4 will appear in the future. Maybe own Sony-Anime in future ?

6. What do you think... how successful is this... for Sony?


I am very interested in the topic, but I have no idea. Maybe you.. ? What do you think ?

That's a very interesting move from Sony. Looking forward to see what they are going to do with it.



Hope its good both ways.
Invest non stop on games and anime and bring SAO to reality already, Sony.

Sony Pictures is basically a separated company to main Sony.

Will it be in charge of it?
