The Funimation app has a lot of content, but a lot of it assumes English is the viewer’s primary language. That won’t be an issue for much longer as Funi has announced plans to add Spanish sub tracks to over 1,000 episodes in its library, as well as provide dub versions of over 600 episodes.
The list includes episodes of Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Wonder Egg Priority, SK8 the Infinity, Higurashi: When They Cry, and Akudama Drive, as well as Funi’s current most popular titles like My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, and Attack on Titan. They say it’s in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15), but you really don’t need a special occasion to add something that should’ve been there all along.
“I am SO SO excited that the Latin anime community can experience their favorite shows dubbed in Spanish,” said Anairis Quinones, voice of Mirko in My Hero Academia. “Our community has loved anime for the longest time and is a huge supporter of anime. I’m happy that the industry can give back with more opportunities to experience anime and even be a part of it! Keep an eye out for My Hero Academia’s Spanish dub! ¡¡Plus ultra!!”
“Growing up watching English dubs of anime, it was rare to see any Latino voice actors in the credits, let alone Latino voice directors,” said Emily Fajardo, the voice of Eua in Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU. “I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to direct and act in dubs and to help make anime more accessible to people from all different backgrounds.”
There will also be a Portugese language option for most of the same titles. The extra languages will be added to the shows gradually through the month of September.
