Since Gen Fukunaga started Funimation with the first ever English dub of Dragon Ball Z, our goal has been to make the best anime in the world accessible to most fans possible. Today, we’re announcing a new partnership with Crunchyroll that lets us both work together to bring anime to fans around the world.
What does this mean for you? Simpler, easier choices about where to watch anime. For subtitled viewing, you’ll be able to go to Crunchyroll – in fact, we’ve already started putting some of our subtitled shows up on their service today, and we will be adding more over the weeks to come. For English dubs, you’ll continue to get those from Funimation – we will have select shows from Crunchyroll’s catalog up on FunimationNow coming soon, and we will be creating new dubs for even more shows in the future!

In The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Haruhi is on the lookout for aliens, time travelers and espers to meet, play with, and overload the world with fun! These supernatural beings would be pretty cool to be friends with, but we’re curious—how many anime fans believe in these entities?
In commemoration of Haruhi’s return to home video next Monday (after being out of print for so long! get it here), answer our poll and let us know what you believe in—or if you’re a realist like Kyon who doesn’t really believe in anything supernatural.

Unfortunately good things have to end. Just as in the way of Baccano and the Fullmetal Alchemist series, Birdy the Mighty: Decode will have its license expired on October 14, 2016.
What this means is that Birdy the Mighty: Decode will be removed from Funimation Streaming and when its DVDs have sold out, they will not be reprinted by us. This means that you definitely need to watch and buy this series NOW before they go out of print!
Birdy is a jaw-dropping, pin-up sensation with a secret. Under cover of darkness, this dream girl becomes a bad guy’s worst nightmare. Birdy dons her crime-fighting costume and hits the street as a lethal, interstellar federation agent charged with nailing the most dangerous criminals in the galaxy. Her latest case involves a gang of extraterrestrial terrorists and a stolen space weapon that could nuke every living thing on Earth. Birdy’s got the moves to stop them dead in their tracks, but there’s one big problem: she’s got a nasty habit of going berserk, and somebody always gets hurt. Yeah, Birdy may be dreamy, but she’s also the only thing more dangerous than the bad guys.

One of the most important elements of the anime genre is the music. From the opening of a series to the overall soundtrack right up to the ending of an episode, music has an important hand in crafting a series. Even outside of the show, music aids greatly in the promotion and in keeping the spirit of the show alive. Through this editorial series, I’ll be taking a look at many different aspects of the relationship of anime and music.
To start this editorial series off, I wanted to look at some soundtracks from some of the biggest musically-inclined anime this year, Blood Blockade Battlefront and The Boy and The Beast (Funimation titles only in this particular post). Our friends at Milan Records worked with us in creating soundtrack CDs, and I was lucky enough to grab a CD (or 2) for myself. I’m no expert when it comes to music — and definitely not a reviewer — I simply listened to each soundtrack and I am sharing my journey with each.

Today, GameSamba and Funimation® Entertainment are revealing more details about the upcoming “Tokyo Ghoul” game, now titled “Tokyo Ghoul: Dark War”.
The game will be available this winter for Android and Apple devices, and it will feature three gameplay modes for players to pick from.
The first is the single player quest/story mode, which will take players on an episodic journey where they’ll face an onslaught of human or ghoul foes in real-time action-RPG combat. Players will be able to control a party of characters, and unleash powerful special skills.
“Tokyo Ghoul: Dark War” will also feature a variety of multiplayer modes. The first is a traditional player vs player (PvP) arena, where players can compete against one another in fights, to see who has the stronger team. The other multiplayer mode is an experience inspired by MOBA gameplay, and players will participate in 1v1, 3v3, or 5v5 matches against other players as they attempt to take out the enemy team.
Players interested in signing up for future announcements or beta opportunities for “Tokyo Ghoul: Dark War” can do so at the official site, tokyoghoul.gamesamba.com. The game will also be playable at GameSamba’s booth (6016) at PAX West, along with their upcoming puzzle RPG, “18: Dream World.”
Seasons 1 & 2 of the “Tokyo Ghoul” anime series can be seen on Funimation’s next generation streaming service FunimationNow, which is available on smartphones, tablets, TVs and gaming consoles.
GameSamba is a publisher and developer of free-to-play and mobile games, with studios in Seattle, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. The company’s mission is to bring high quality titles to a global audience. GameSamba currently publishes Star Trek: Alien Domain, Ran Online, and others. For more information, visit gamesamba.com.
