For this week’s New Release Tuesday, we’re bringing you pirates, science, and sorcery!  Let’s jump in and see what all is releasing today in the FUNimation shop!

 

Shorewood Standard Ocard1One Piece – Season Six, Voyage One

 

Available today on DVD - Click here!

 

synopsis

Prepare to embark on a horrifying voyage into the heart of darkness!

While drifting through haunted waters, the Straw Hats encounter a ghost ship inhabited by a walking, talking skeleton. Luffy quickly befriends the ghastly newcomer, but the rest of his mates want nothing to do with this panty-obsessed bag of bones. Before the mystery of the seagoing skeleton can be deciphered, the Straw Hats find themselves trapped within the terrifying walls of Thriller Bark! The situation gets even spookier as our heroes encounter invisible fiends, a graveyard of the undead, possessed paintings, and a zombie samurai! To make matters worse, Zoro and Sanji suddenly vanish – and Chopper, Usopp, and Nami get trapped inside a coffin. While his crew flounders in this floating house of horrors, Luffy sets his sights on a showdown with the man behind the madness: the shadow-stealing monster Gecko Moria!

synopsis

Get ready for a boatload of goose bumps as the Thriller Bark spookfest continues!

Luffy’s impulsive attack on Gecko Moria ends up costing the rubber-man something he can’t live without – his shadow! When Zoro and Sanji find themselves in the same boat, the three fierce fighters must find a way to recapture what was lost, or face the possibility of death by sunlight. Luckily, their skeleton friend, Brook, knows the trick to defeating Moria’s zombie army, and he’ll gladly share the secret in exchange for a little help defeating a sinister zombie samurai! Meanwhile, Nami is kidnapped by an undead scoundrel who wants to make her his wife, and Usopp must rely on his natural state of negativity if he hopes to survive his encounter with a gothic Lolita and her ghostly minions. Hair raising thrills are the story of the hour as the Straw Hats attempt to escape Thriller Bark with their shadows – and souls – intact!

A Certain Magical Index – Season One – Complete

 

Available now for the first time on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack – Click here!

 

synopsis

Now on Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack for the first time!

Science and sorcery make for an explosive mix in A Certain Magical Index, an enthralling experiment in sci-fi adventure from the studio that brought you Toradora and Slayers Revolution!

Kamijo is a student in Academy City, where people use science to develop supernatural abilities. The guy’s got a lot of heart – luckily for a young nun named Index. She’s on the run from a sorcery society that covets the astonishing 103,000 volumes of magical knowledge stored in her memory. When Index stumbles into Kamijo’s life, she find a faithful friend and protector, and while Kamijo’s easily the weakest kid in Academy City, he’s got something else going for him: the Imagine Breaker, an unexplainable power stored in his right hand that negates the powers of others. With scientists and sorcerers attacking from all sides, the Imagine Breaker will definitely come in handy – but it’s Kamijo’s loyalty to Index that will be his greatest weapon in the fight to keep her safe.

synopsis

The forces of good and evil have converged upon the planet Earth, and the fate of the universe hangs in the balance! The evil wizard Babidi has traveled across the galaxy on a quest for revenge, hoping to fulfill his father’s thwarted dreams of universal domination. Meanwhile, the Supreme Kai has come to enlist the aid of the Z-Fighters in an effort to prevent Babidi from completing his plans and awakening a monster of unimaginable terror – Majin Buu!

As Goku and the Z-Fighters descend into Babidi’s lair, they are confronted by an army of powerful minions, led by the Demon King Dabura himself! Can our heroes resist the wizard’s dark magic and battle their way through this host of villains before time runs out? With each passing second, more energy is gathered for the sleeping Majin Buu. And should this creature of pure evil be awakened, all life – everywhere – will be extinguished!

 

 

Second, we have a double-dose of Fairy Tail!

 

Shorewood Standard Ocard1

 

synopsis – Part 12
Using a book from the Heartfilia library as a guide, the members of Fairy Tail split up to track down pieces of the Infinity Clock—a legendary enchanted item that could have the power to bring ruin to the entire world. Standing in their way is a secret order of wizards known as the Legion Platoon, who don’t trust the magic time bomb in the hands of the notoriously destructive guild. As the clock ticks closer to doomsday, an old enemy—Oración Seis—is reborn in a terrifyingly powerful new form. This dark guild has its own plans for the magical timepiece, and if Fairy Tail and the Legion Platoon can’t stop them from using the catastrophic clock, time could be up for the Fiore Kingdom.

 

Shorewood Standard Ocard1

synopsis – Part 13

Oración Seis has kidnapped Lucy and is using her to power a clock capable of spreading catastrophic magic cross the world. If Fairy Tail doesn’t stop the dark guild, the entire Fiore Kingdom will fall into a waking nightmare and their teammate will merge with the enchanted timepiece forever. But Oración Seis isn’t the only group of wizards standing in their way: the Legion Platoon has decided that to save the world, they’ll destroy the magic clock—and Lucy. While Fairy Tail fights with all their power to rescue their teammate, the truth about Michelle comes to light and a devastating deception is exposed. When the clock begins to chime reality descends into chaos, and in the end Natsu and his fellow wizards might be too late.

Attack on Titan, One Piece, Naruto, and….The Simpsons?

The Simpsons’ annual “Treehouse of Horror” aired its 25th installment this past weekend and featured some pretty cool iterations of the cast.

 The Simpsons family paid serious tribute to popular anime with Homer as Zoro from One Piece, Marge as Rangiku from Bleach, Bart as Naruto, Lisa as Mikasa from Attack on Titan, Maggie as Pikachu from Pokémon and even Santa’s Little Helper played a part as Haku from Spirited Away!

FUNimation Fall 2014 Simulcast Season, Part 1

The Fall 2014 Season is fast approaching, and I’m sure you’re wondering what we have in store for you! Well, here’s what we can confirm at this time:

 

One Piece will be continuing in its current time slot.

 

One Piece – Saturdays at 9pm CT/ 10pm ET

 

Monkey D. Luffy is a boy with big dreams. This daring rubber-man refuses to let anyone or anything stand in the way of his quest to become king of all pirates. With a course charted for the treacherous waters of the Grand Line, Luffy strikes out in search of a crew – and a boat. Along the way he’ll do battle with scallywag clowns, fishy foes, and an entire fleet of marines eager to see him walk the plank. The stakes are high, but with each adventure, Luffy adds a new friend to his gang of Straw Hat Pirates! Like his hero Gold Roger, this is one captain who’ll never drop anchor until he’s claimed the greatest treasure on Earth – the Legendary One Piece!

Fairy Tail will be continuing in its current time slot.

 

Fairy Tail - Fridays at 9pm CT/ 10pm ET

 

Across the Fiore kingdom, wizards join guilds and make their pay by filling magical needs—but one guild has a reputation as the roughest, rowdiest, most dangerous of all: Fairy Tail!

When four young Fairy Tail members unite, their bond is forged by a power found in neither muscle nor magic and grows stronger with every mission. Whatever you do, don’t mess with these friends or you’ll get a taste of Natsu’s flaming fist or Gray’s ice hammer, suffer a painful blow from one of Lucy’s celestial spirits or catch the edge of Erza’s mighty blade! Whether they’re stopping demons from devastating the world or wrestling in the mess hall, this mystical team manages to inflict as much damage to their rivals as they do to the surrounding area!

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day – Sing Like a Straw Hat

BROOK_thriller bark

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Every year on September 19th we celebrate this international phenomenon that gives us all an excuse to party like pirates; or, in our case, to party like Straw Hats!

 

Of course no pirate is completely without a lively pirate tune to make the long voyages at sea just a little more bearable. So, this year, in honor of the upcoming release of One Piece Season 6, Voyage 1, we’re teaching you all how to sing Binks’ Brew (a.k.a. Binks’ Sake).

 

This song is meant to lift the spirits of those who sing it. Being an old school pirate, Brook knows this song by heart and will sing it every chance he gets. Check out the lyrics below, and sing along with the clip!

 

Lyrics:

Gather up all of the crew, it’s time to ship out Binks’ Brew.

Sea wind blows, to where, who knows? The waves will be our guide.

O’er across the ocean’s tide.. Rays of sunshine far and wide.

Birds they sing, of cheerful things, in circles passing by.

Yo hohoho, yo hohoho…Yo hohoho, yo hohoho…

Yo hohoho, yo hohoho…Yo hohoho, yo hohoho…
