“At Funimation, we want to connect and serve fans the world over,” said Colin Decker, CEO of Funimation Global Group. “We see a large and vibrant community in Latin America who have waited patiently for our service to come to their region. We saw that it meant a lot to these fans, and so we challenged ourselves to go live ahead of schedule. I’m very proud to say that we got it done—just in time for the holidays.”
