Eager to follow in the footsteps of his fallen sister, Kazuya enrolls at West Genetics Academy, a training facility for buxom heroes known as Pandoras. These courageous schoolgirls are genetically-enhanced with enough sex appeal to cripple a man – and the superhuman strength to slaughter aliens by the dozen. Kazuya’s role is that of Limiter, a Pandora’s battle partner, and he quickly sets his sights on the most feared beauty in school, Satellizer el Bridget. This full-figured annihilator of aliens is as desirable as she is deadly, but rubbing her the wrong way could lead to gross bodily harm. Can Kazuya forge a bond with his new partner and rise to the top of the ranks at West Genetics? Or will he fall victim to the mysterious bloodlust lurking within Satellizer?

Top FUNimation Streaming Shows of 2014

It’s the end of the year as we know it! Let’s take a look at some of the top FUNimation streaming shows of 2014.

Attack on Titan

 

First up, and this should come as no surprise to anyone, Attack on Titan! And before you protest and say “Hey, Attack on Titan simulcasted in 2013!” we started to roll out the English dubbed episodes in 2014 in conjunction with the television broadcast on Toonami–so, it still counts!

 

We’ve been describing this show as the Walking Dead of the anime world. If you’ve seen the show, then you know why. If you haven’t seen the show, where have you been?

 

series synopsis:

 

When the man-eating giants called Titans first appeared, humans retreated behind massive walls. After a hundred years of safety, a colossal-sized Titan smashes through the defenses, unleashing a flood of giants and carnage in the streets. Eren Jaeger watches helplessly as one of the creatures devours his mother.

 

He vows to kill every Titan walking the earth.

 

Eren and his surviving friends enlist to fight against the insatiable monsters. The future looks bleak, but there’s more to Eren than meets the eye: he may be humanity’s last hope against extinction. From the director of Death Note and High School of the Dead comes the series Anime News Network calls “an intense, visceral, and graphic thrill ride.” The Titans have come to feast. Anything can happen. No one is safe.

 

More reasons to love this show? The awesomely epic Opening Song.

 

 

Attack on Titan Part 1 and Part 2 are now available for purchase on Blu-ray/DVD Combo!

May the Fourth be With You, Baby!

 

 

May the Fourth be with you. Every year on May the 4th we celebrate Star Wars Day (Get it? May the Fourth, May the Force…). Last year we took a look at Star Wars references in some of our anime titles. From Princess Jellyfish to Tenchi to FLCL, there are more nods to this beloved franchise in anime than you would think. For a list of some other Star Wars references in FUNimation anime titles, click here.

 

This year, we can add Space Dandy to that list! In the episode “The War of the Undies and Vests, Baby” Dandy crash lands on a remote planet, only to get knocked out and kidnapped by one of the planet’s inhabitants. Sound kind of familiar? Maybe this pose might jog your memory:

Announcements at Anime Boston

Flower Mound, TX (March 22, 2014) – FUNimation Entertainment announced today at their Anime Boston Industry Panel that they have acquired the home video rights to A Certain Scientific Railgun S. The series will release on DVD in two parts this summer.

 

series synopsis:

 

Something sinister is growing in Academy City. The shadows are filled with whispers of a project to clone one of the super-powered students known as espers. High-ranking master of electricity Mikoto Misaka laughs off these stories until she comes face to face with a copy of herself. The duplicates are real, and are being mass-produced from Misaka’s DNA, making each one of them a little piece of her.

 

These clones—her sisters—are being systematically murdered in a series of experiments designed to turn a sadistic killer into the strongest esper in history. Misaka vows to save her copies and destroy the project, but this might be one fight she can’t win alone. High-energy battles and intense action explode in this continuation of the Railgun series from the creator of A Certain Magical Index.
