In case you missed it this weekend, anime fans are not happy at Funimation due to their recent actions towards a certain ecchi anime. This ecchi anime is called Interspecies Reviewers and it was an anime that was originally streamed by Funimation, but unfortunately for fans, Funimation dropped this anime after three episodes. According to sources, the reason Funimation has decided to stop streaming Interspecies Reviewers because series was “outside of standards”. According to news site from J-list, the anime does have content involving sexual themes and acts that include the characters reviewing intercourse with monster girls in brothels. So far there is no confirmation for a company to stream this anime. The reason why this news has been the buzz is because Funimation has shown mature anime before such as High School DxD, Prison School and Valkyrie Drive Mermaid and they contained sexual and nudity themes. Fans are outraged.
Someone took a screenshot of this and posted at Reddit:
Manga synopsis according to YenPress:
Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder! From elves to succubi to cyclopes and more, the Interspecies Reviewers rate the red-light delights of all manner of monster girls…the only thing is, they can never agree on which species is the hottest!
Until we get any information on this anime, fans will not be able to watch this anime at Funimation.
The weirdest thing about this decision is just the synopsis of the anime told you what the likely content was so how did it take three episodes before Funimation decided it fell outside guidelines? Seems weird timing on the decision to be honest.
I was surprised Funimation got a hold of this in the beginning.
Gotta agree with Karandi here. It was clear the get-go what sort of series this was, so it should have been easy to tell if it fit within their guidelines.I read that there was a lot of censorship involved with their stream too, so you’d think they’d have known sooner.
Yeah I have to agree too. I didn’t watch this anime but I have heard from the fans saying that this anime is extremely heavily lewd. I heard even in places like Taiwan is uncensored. I feel like Funimation didn’t do a lot of research on this title.
Imagine the shock when that realized what they’d gotten into.
Yeah I can’t imagine that. If I was in Funimation, I would questioning why did we do this in the first place and what have done. Fans are already complaining. Funi is in a tight spot and it needs to get out.
I kind of thought it was a fun anime. It was definitely more sexual than you’d normally see. In DXD, there’s a lot of not-quite-sex and the idiot hero only wants to stare at breasts.
I want the uncensored version.
Yeah I thought this anime was going to be something chill and nothing to be taken serious like DxD. If we ever get the uncensored, we’ll probably have to wait for the DVD release.
