Funimation Global Group, LLC was an American entertainment and media distribution company which specialized in the dubbing and localization of East Asian productions, typically Japanese anime. It was founded in 1994 by Gen Fukanaga and his wife Cindy Brennan in Silicon Valley, California, then subsequently relocated to Flower Mound, Texas. In addition to anime series, the company also distributed feature films, both animated and live action, both theatrically and to home video and streaming under its Funimation Films subsidiary. It was responsible for the English dubbing for Toho's live action Attack on Titan films and Shin Godzilla, releasing the films itself in North America and sublicensing them to Manga Entertainment and Madman Entertainment for distribution in the United Kingdom and Australia, respectively. The company was acquired by Sony in 2017. It acquired Manga Entertainment in 2019, eventually rebranding it as Funimation UK and Ireland in 2021. Sony eventually acquired the competing anime distributor Crunchyroll later in 2021, with an announcement following in 2022 that it would be folded under Funimation, which would be rebranded under the Crunchyroll name with the Funimation label phased out entirely.
