Sweet! I've definitely been digging the Funi subs way more than some of the fansubs - some have been a bit 'meh' as of late...

The last time I tried to watch FMA:B on Funimation's site, the episode took forever to load so after a while I just gave up. So I don't know how well they translated it, but Eclipse's fansubs are always pretty good.


For me, Funi's stuff loads up pretty fast (the major exception was the first episode) but since they also have it up on Hulu and their Youtube channel, it's pretty easy to get a hold of. Just know that the Youtube and Hulu episodes are two eps. behind the ones on Funi's site.

As for the fansubs, I end up going with Eclipse...but I have issues with some of their translations...episode 5 coming to mind...

As Kale Mustang said, trying to watch the first episode on the first day on Funimation.com was rather painful. But, since then, it has been fairly reliable and fast, and just as Kale Mustamg has mentioned, if it's a couple weeks old episode, then Hulu (another licensed carrier of Funimation subbed episodes) is an excellent place to watch these episodes. And, I'm fairly happy with the subs by Funimation, with no major mistakes to think of so far.
I think Eclipse used to have a good reputation, yet, with that major translation oops on episode 5 I think it kind of exposed how vulnerable fansubs are to translation mistakes, even some so-called reputable ones. tongue.gif

To the person who said that Funimation's episodes load slow on their website: It only happens to me when I'm on my laptop it seems like. Maybe about five to 10 mins, or sometimes not even at all. But when I get on the family computer, the episodes only take two to three minutes.

The episodes are back up now, and episode 9 will be come on at the usual time. (according to FUNimation's Twitter.)

more episodes of other series funimation is streaming have just been leaked again even ( phantom ep 10 )

Funimation denies this on ann's forum...but expect another leak of one piece....and probably more downtime on funimation's side of things until they learn some real website security.

The weird thing is that FMA:Brotherhood Episode 9 is up on the site, and they show it as if it's supposed to be on there right now. o_O

I thought that Funimation took FMA episodes off their websites? Because I couldn't get it to work.

confirmation that fma:b ep 9 was leaked as well.

edit: update with Funimation's lawyer and an Anime News Network staff member denying the leak without even first confirming the veracity of such rumors.

What leads you to believe it leaked from FUNimation? I can assure you, it did not.


then some shaddy defending by one of ann's staff
QUOTE (jsevakis)
We've believe the FMA "leak" is a troll. Did a good job faking the logos and font, but there were several things about it that were dead give-aways. Where you're getting this "confirmation" from is anybody's guess.


after the screenshots were posted, the ann guy replies back with:

Yep, looks like I spoke too soon. Yikes.

Yeah the idea that fansubs are better than the official release never makes sense to me and this proves it. Slicer the Homicide wasn't very pretty either. But I guess for speed subs they are not that bad. I watch them because I am impatient but I always watch Funi's subs later in the week for the better translation and also to support what they are doing.

Okay, since everyone's saying that Funimation's official translations are better, I guess I'll start watching them later in the week. They come out on Thursdays, right?

Yeah, except for this week, where it oddly came out a few hours ago.

Thank you, asunder for that interesting info! Hmm, one would think that in preparation for the streaming of these Japanese anime episodes, Funimation might have beefed up the security beforehand, but I guess that wasn't the case. And, from the sound of it they haven't done much even after the incident?? And, the upshot of it is that we end up being able to watch episode 9 one day earlier than the normal scheduled date? Ok, I take that. XD
But seriously, I hope they would be able to tighten some security. mellow.gif

no they added security to the flash video files they used to stream the video
normally one would be able to download the video using a plug in (friends of mine did this to keep them on a hard drive - although this is still possible on the youtube videos)
now that ad at the beginning acts as a barrier (in computer lingo turned into english, even though they had this before, the ad and the video were separate files, now the ad is seemingly "bundled" and acts to deter the files detection)

Umm, that would prevent hackers from uploading the episode prematurely to Funimation.com site and made them available before the scheduled date? unsure.gif

No hacking of servers were involved. Only because of a really poor job by funimation, anyone with some basic google skills could figure out that the flv files were hosted at
CODE
http://video.funimation.com/FLV/FUN_[ANIME_TITLE]_[EP#]_JPN_640X360.flv

Other 'streaming sites' were directly linking the .flv files <___<

after one piece got 'taken' the first time a few days ago, they did a bit of renaming of the series name, but still in a same filename format as above. Funimation (or whatever company they outsource to) basically uploaded the file for public access ahead of when it was supposed to be streamed. Some eager fan downloaded it and distributed it.
