Funimation is being taken to task by Asian-American VAs who claim the anime dub company is, well, too white. The article in Indiewire seemed to want to paint a positive picture of Funimation at first, but by the end of the article, the VAs found it problematic that there wasn’t enough representation at the top and that it was a small circle of mostly white VAs who got most of the roles. HMMM. With everyone being concerned about VAs “staying in their own lanes” how long until some white VAs get kicked to the curb?
