A New Anime Era Begins as AnimeLab Retires on 9 December 2021

Hey anime fans in Australia and New Zealand – we have an important update for you. The AnimeLab streaming platform will retire on 9 December AEDT, 2021. You’ll find the majority of the anime content you know and love—plus stacks more—over on the Funimation platform, which you can log into right now using your AnimeLab credentials!

AnimeLab was proudly built from the ground up by a team of Aussie anime fans, who sought to bring a stellar streaming platform to the local community. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your support over the last 8 years. A new era is upon us now as we venture into the global anime community in collaboration with our Funimation teammates – we look forward to bringing you on this journey with us.

Your anime awaits on Funimation

If you’re an AnimeLab subscriber, you can use your credentials to log in to Funimation right now for the latest simulcasts, exclusive content, and more.

If you have neither Funimation nor AnimeLab accounts, you can go ahead and create a Funimation account here to get started.  

The future is more anime

Building an exceptional streaming platform takes time, but together with our global counterparts, we are committed to combining our collective experience to develop a world-class anime service for all of you. In fact, you might have seen that some new platform features and refreshes to the iOS app and gaming consoles have already started rolling out.

This has been a big undertaking for the team in Australia – we are doing our utmost to serve our beloved ANZ anime fans as we unite with the global community, so please bear with us through any small bumps in the road.

The AnimeLab brand may be leaving, but the ANZ team is still with you, and we’re excited for more exclusive anime content, massive events around the world, and heaps, HEAPS more on the horizon. Seeya on Funimation!
