Clearly you have no idea what your talking about or in fact read the article, because if you did you would know that sony is only buy 95 percent of the company foe 143 million dollars. funimation is going to stay the same for the most part, Gen is staying on as CEO and so are all the Voice Actors. the crunchy roll funimation deal is staying as well. so really if you read anything you wouls understand that funimation will continue to be run by funimation the only difference is now sony is footing the bill.
