AnimeLab is Becoming Funimation in Australia and New Zealand

A big g’day and kia ora to Funimation Australia/New Zealand!

Big news: AnimeLab is becoming Funimation, and you can access Funimation with your AnimeLab login details right now!

G'day Funimation!

“AnimeLab was built from the ground up by a team of Australians. To be able to take what we have built and unify to be part of an expansive global growth brand like Funimation, it presents opportunities that we never dreamed possible. With the same great local team and access to a world-class service, it’s a win for fans locally.”

Tim Anderson, Senior Vice President of International for Funimation Global Group and co-founder of Madman Anime Group and AnimeLab

All the anime you can handle, plus a global community of fans just like you!

With exclusive benefits to being a part of the global Funimation family, plus the same local team you know and love, your world of anime is about to get a whole lot bigger.

You can log into Funimation using just your current AnimeLab details right now! We know you’ll love all the features, like more hours of anime, streaming on up to 5 devices simultaneously, exclusive content, download to go, brand-new apps on PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch, and access to huge events with our global community.

And if you’re not an AnimeLab subscriber, you can sign up to Funimation right now and start exploring. If you’re having issues merging your accounts, you can try this link.

You’ll see the vast majority of the same content that was available on AnimeLab on Funimation ANZ, and simulcast season will be exclusive to Funimation. AnimeLab will be around for a few more months to smooth out any bumps, but will ultimately retire as we move to the brand-new platform!


Same Aussie team, new global family

Though your existing Aussie social media team is still here, you’ll see some changes to the AnimeLab social accounts rolling out as handles and branding evolve to Funimation ANZ.

Stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, and we’ll keep you updated on this process to make the transition as streamlined as possible!

Once the transition is complete, the AnimeLab blog will ultimately retire, and we’ll continue publishing our articles over at funimation.com/blog.

We’d love to tell you all our secrets right now but shhh… there are a few more coming in the next few weeks. Until then, sit back and relax – we’ve got you. Our world is yours… down under!
