Who would buy FUNimation?

Since FUNimation's home entertainment deal with Universal, I read things people have been talking about online about the possibility of Universal buying FUNimation. You guys all know FUNimation, the anime guys, the Gods of English Dub. Their film division, FUNimation Films, who mostly releases anime movies, owns the North American distribution rights to Attack on Titan: Part 1 & 2 and Godzilla: Resurrgance. But Universal has their own anime division, NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan, so I don't think they'd have need for another source for anime. Now I've been thinking, if FUNimation was bought buy a media company, who do you guys think would be a potential/perfect buyer? I think it should be either Paramount Pictures, who also owns the U.S./Canadian distribution rights to the 1976 King Kong remake, or Legendary Pictures, the Kings of Fanboy Flix. Mostly Paramount, because of the benifits both companies would gain. FUNimation Films would more distribution channels and FUNimation Entertainment would be able to expand into more non-North American countries easier. Paramount, through FUNimation Films, would gain both another source for animated movies (the other one being Paramount Animation) and another source for distribution revenue. Also, Warner Home Video, through their deal with Paramount, could put Godzilla 2014 and Godzilla: Resurgance into a DVD set.
