Funimation, the distribution company behind Dragon Ball Super: Broly,  responded to voice actor Vic Mignogna’s name not appearing on the cast listing on iTunes.

Mignogna, who voiced Broly in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, did not have his name credited on the iTunes’ listing of the film.

YouTuber and lawyer Nick Rekieta, who also set up a GoFundMe for Vic Mignogna’s legal team, spotted the removal and brought it to the attention of Funimation. Mignogna has been at the center of sexual misconduct allegations that have seen him fired from Rooster Teeth and Funimation.

Funimation would respond explaining Mignogna’s name not appearing is “an error on the iTunes listing.” They then point to the Best Buy listing which has Mignogna properly credited. They also note, “We are working to get the iTunes listing fixed.”

Funimation would also respond to similar complaints regarding Mignogna’s name on Fullmetal Alchemist. Mignogna voiced lead character Edward Elric in the popular anime series.

Funimation would indicate they are not the licensor on Fullmetal Alchemist and have “not had the rights to Fullmetal Alchemist since 2016.”

They would clarify that they have The Sacred Star of Milos available to purchase on their website, but they do not have the rights for the TV and Fullmetal Alchemist The Movie – Conqueror of Shamballa.

Rekieta would thank Funimation for responding while also pointing out the problem with Google Play. He also notes that Mignogna had been removed from RWBY as well.

Funimation would respond explaining that “The Google Play listing is not our official listing. It may be pulling the cast list from somewhere else on the internet.”

They would then once again explain they don’t have the rights to Fullmetal Alchemist.

As of this writing, we can confirm Mignogna does now appear on the cast listing for Dragon Ball Super: Broly on iTunes.

While Mignogna is listed on the cast list for Dragon Ball Super: Broly, if you actually click his name it only shows Dragon Ball Super: Broly as his only film credit. This is not the case for Sean Schemmel and the other voice actors.

Mignogna is still not credited on Google Play for Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

What do you make of Funimation’s response? Do you think there is some kind of conspiracy as to why Mignogna’s name wasn’t credited?
