FUNimation rose to prominence by acquiring the rights to the popular anime title Dragon Ball (licensed early-mid 1990's), Dragon Ball Z (licensed in the early-mid 1990s) and Dragonball GT (licensed between 2003-2004).
Apart from being (negatively) stereotyped as "the company that does DBZ," due to their heavy promotion of Dragonball Z, FUNimation's packaging of the first Fullmetal Alchemist DVD was reportedly ill-received due to the special edition tin's featuring a large sticker on the lid that was difficult to remove.
FUNimation's legal department served CandD letters for series that had not yet been advertised or announced as licensed, including Tsubasa Chronicle, Black Cat, and Solty Rei, with a few known series also mentioned in the letter.
