Good or bad news for anime fans. Remember the anime Black Butler and how it was owned and licensed by both Funimation and Aniplex of America? I got some news I want to share from me, Matt. According to Anime News Network, Aniplex announced that the anime Black Butler season 1 will be re-released in Blu-Ray in January 2019. If you didn’t know what happened, a while back, the Funimation lost the license for Black Butler and the anime got taken back to Aniplex. So far, Aniplex of America already owns both seasons 1 and 2.
