There hardly is an anime fan out there who hasn’t heard of Funimation—Sony’s entertainment company focusing on distributing anime shows in North America.

Best of all, you can install the platform’s app on any device you own, including gaming consoles. Is there a Funimation app on Xbox Series X/S, then, you might ask. The answer is yes, and we tell you how to set it up in a few straightforward steps.

Time to press play!

How to Get the Funimation App on Xbox Series X/S?

Want to watch anime to your heart’s content on your Xbox? Then, follow these steps:

  1. Power up your Xbox machine;
  2. Navigate to the Microsoft Store;
  3. Select the search bar and type in ‘Funimation’;
  4. Click on the app and press ‘GET Free’;
  5. Once installed, open the app;
  6. Write down the code displayed on the screen;
  7. Open on your phone;
  8. Log into your account and enter the code shown on your TV.

That’s all! Now that you have successfully logged into the Funimation app on your Xbox, you can start browsing and playing your favorite shows whenever you wish.

Is Creating a Funimation Account Free?

Before installing Funimation on your Xbox, you must create a Funimation account, and you can choose between a free yet limited plan and a paid subscription tier.

So, the answer is ‘yes’, creating a Funimation account is free, and with it, you can access most of the platform’s shows, although you’ll be annoyed with ads and you won’t get the best video quality, subtitles, or even the latest dubbed episodes.

That is why you should consider switching to a paid plan to watch ad-free, subbed, and dubbed episodes that you can download for later. In any case, you can start a 14-day free trial before subscribing to see whether or not the paid plan is for you.

Should you choose to retain your subscription after that, you will have to start paying $7.99/month for the Premium plan or $9.99/month for the Premium Plus one.

Note: If you are an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, you can redeem a two-month free subscription on the Funimation Premium Plus tier.

What Can You Watch on Funimation?

Funimation is the Disneyland for anime fans everywhere: almost 600 Japanese anime shows, most of which are dubbed in English, and a large variety of movies and OVAs. Let’s break down the most popular anime genres you can expect to find on Funimation in HD quality:

However, note that the latest shows, movies, and OVAs may only be available to premium Funimation members, whereas free users can still enjoy established older shows with ads and subtitles. Also, they won’t get the simultaneous streams feature.

That said, chances are that popular shows, such as Full Metal Alchemist, My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, and Dragon Ball, are exclusive to Premium members.

Bottom Line

The Xbox series X/S was designed with multimedia consumption in mind. Yes, it’s a gaming console, but Microsoft intended to have it replace your entire entertainment system. With that in mind, the Funimation app is an incredible get, as it gives you access to a whole library of fantastic anime shows that you can watch on demand.
