After simulcasting a few episodes of Interspecies Reviewers, Funimation have removed the series from their platform.
They provided AnimeNewsNetwork with the following statement, which sends some clear messages regarding how they view and value the content they provide:
After careful consideration, we determined that this series falls outside of our standards. We have the utmost respect for our creators so rather than substantially alter the content, we felt taking it down was the most respectful choice.
Funimation’s willingness to release this kind of statement to subscribers who looked forward to the show is disappointing to say the least, but not surprising
