Anime fans of the U.S.A., ever wanted to be the first people to watch a new anime series? I got news for you especially if you stream on Hulu. It’s been announced that Hulu signed a deal with Funimation that starting 2019 that they will be the first to choose which new anime will be streamed for simulcasts and simuldubs. Lisa Holme, Hulu‘s VP of content acquisition, commented in Variety that they are hoping to get at least 20 or more different series per year which will include English Subbed and Dubbed. So you like watching Funimation anime like My Hero Academia and Attack on Titan, I hope you are ready to renew your subscription for Hulu for more Funi anime in 2019.
Hello anime fans! I got some interesting news for you if you are interested on binge watching some anime. If you didn’t know, the anime companies that were partnered up Funimation and Crunchyroll were split up after two years of working together streaming anime and selling home videos of anime. The result of this partnership helped Funimation dub some Crunchyroll licensed anime into English Dub and helped sell home videos and the same time brought anime from Funimation to Crunchyroll to be streamed. But now that these two powerhouses are separated, here is some news in regards to your favorite anime.
Funimation announced on Friday that they will be adding 300+ anime in subbed format to their list and will be available to anyone with a FunimationNow account. I am not going to list all of them, but anime like Baka and Test, Black Butler and Cowboy Bebop will be added as subtitled anime. If you like anime from Funimation, but preferred anime in subtitles, now you can enjoy it your favorite Funimation shows on your account.
Previously mentioned, Crunchyroll and Funimation teamed up and released English Dub on certain anime titles. However, after being split, these English Dubbed anime from Crunchyroll will still be intact and won’t be affected. Crunchyroll anime like Berserk, Taboo Tattoo and Masamune-kun’s Revenge will be safe and will be available in both Crunchyroll and Funimation platforms. These anime will also be in subtitles for viewer preference.

Crunchyroll adds 17 English Dub anime to site
What started off as an incredible partnership in 2016, now the biggest anime companies Funimation and Crunchyroll are splitting up and going their separate ways. If you didn’t know, Funimation and Crunchyroll teamed up in 2016 to help spread out more anime for fans. Thanks to this, fans were able to stream Funimation licensed anime like Cowboy Bebop on Crunchyroll and Funimation was able to sell anime like Gintama season 3 and Twin Exorcists in English Dub. With this sudden news, Funimation anime that are dubbed and subbed are heading to FunimationNow and it won’t be appearing in Crunchyroll. However, as far I know, it looks like anime planned home videos are still in progress and it won’t be heavily affected. To make matters worse, VRV will be removing the Funimation channel and will be replacing it with HIDIVE. HIDIVE is a streaming site where fans can watch anime titles licensed by Sentai Filmworks such as Clannad, My Love Story and Kill Me Baby. The pact will end this November 9th.

Another title bites the dust for Funimation.
It was announced yesterday by Funimation and according to ANN that the anime movie Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos will be expiring. Funimation states that they will discontinue sales of the movie until November 21; unless you seen own a copy of the movie, you have until that date to buy the movie.
Here is a brief fact according to ANN in regards about the movie:
Fullmetal Alchemist: Sacred Star of Milos is a movie that takes place during episode 20 of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and the 11th chapter of the manga.
This is not the first time Funimation lost an anime title. Funimation has lost the license for the previous Fullmetal Alchemist anime such as the classic version, Brotherhood and the first movie Conqueror of Shamballa. Fullmetal Achemist: Brotherhood is coming back as Blu-Ray set and will be released this fall and will be sold by Aniplex of America.
Class 1-A made a name for themselves after facing The League of Villains, but an even greater challenge is about to begin. These young heroes will now fight students from other classes in the world’s biggest Quirk competition-the U.A. sports festival! With dreams at stake and friends turning to adversaries, Deku will give everything he’s got in his grand debut as the world’s next symbol of peace.
*It won’t contain spoilers in this season, but I will assume everyone watched season 1.

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing okay in this hot season of the month. As we all know, July is coming to an end and this means that we are reaching the second half of the year of 2018. I hope you guys had a fun season this month. As most of you already know, July is the hottest month for not only having a summer season in climate, but this is also a good month to shop! Since I have a job and fortunately, I didn’t go broke on my bank account, I didn’t hesitate (sort of) on shopping for anime deals! Sites like Sentai Filmworks was having a mega deal on all anime including Premium Sets like High School of the Dead Complete Collection with DVD/Blu-Ray combo including OVA and Akame Ga Kill Premium Sets 1 and 2. Rightstuf had a sale on many things like Mega Deals on DVD sets and Premium sets that changed everyday; this includes adult content. They had weekly sales on certain manga and select titles in DVDs. I believe Amazon did their own thing as well, but to be honest, I didn’t shop with them. I am not much an Amazon fan because I had a bad experience working with them as an employee and I didn’t like how they gave me my final paycheck.
Besides that, I am here to show you my new DVDs in which I purchased from Sentai Filmworks and Rightstuf. Thank you guys for the amazing sales and I can’t wait to shop for more in the future!
For $75, I bought Rurouni Kenshin New Kyoto Arc (I needed a cart stuffer to help me free shpping), Outbreak Company DVD set, Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon DVD/Blu-Ray LE and the OVA DVD Is It Wrong to Expect A Hot Spring in A Dungeon?.
For $51 and being cheaper than the Sentai Filmworks site, I got the spinoff anime of DanMachi called Sword Oratoria: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side Premium Box Set. This title so long and I wished it stuck with a shorter title. I got this during a Mega Deal sale. Now I have all the anime series!
Last but not least, I bought myself some action anime. Ironically, these titles were not LE and were just DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital standard versions. I bought My Hero Academia season 2 sets 1 and 2. I plan to watch these sets and help me get ready for season 3. Thank you Funimation!
What did you buy during this month? Thank you for reading my post. Please support these anime sites Sentai Filmworks and Rightstuf. They made it possible and they want to be able to help you guys to buy anime and support the content.
Hello everyone, I hope everyone is having a fun Thursday today. I got some exciting news to share with you in the world of anime. Thanks to my Twitter friend @wicked_ninja123 and to my awesome blogger friend Barbara, who is also the writer in her blog bookishnerdygirl, I saw some awesome news. Thank you guys! Revealed at San Diego Comic Con, FUNimation revealed the English Dub to the upcoming movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly. In this video, we see returning characters like Goku, Vegeta, and Frieza and we also see Akira Toriyama’s version of Broly and his father Paragus.
In this version, Broly dons a Sayian armor and Paragus appears old.
How hype are you? This movie comes out in America in January 2019.
