FUNimationYou may have noticed that FUNimation's video portal hasn't been playing ball with UK users since it came back online - they've implemented geographical filtering that at the moment blocks the UK for all shows. Fear not, though - shortly after the portal came back, the company's Twitter feed (@funimation, unsurprisingly) noted that shows would return to the UK once the necessary clearances had been sorted out, and that's now be confirmed on the company blog:

Unfortunately, UK-based visitors to the FUNimation video portal will be temporarily unable to access our content. We are in the process of opening the video of each series which is approved for streaming in the UK, and this will take additional time to complete. Again, this is only temporary and we fully intend for these series to return for our fans in the UK.

That's a bit vague on timescales, sadly, but many of the affected shows are still available through FUNi's YouTube channel.
