Ben-To English Dubbed Episodes Available May 27th

FUNimation has acquired the home video rights to the Ben-To anime! The series will release in Summer 2014. The final English-subtitled episodes of the series were released for subscribers this week. Subscribers will be able to watch the first two dubbed episodes via the site on May 27th. Check FUNimation.com/EVSSchedule for dates.

 

synopsis:

Every day an epic struggle rages in grocery stores across Japan—the battle for half-priced bento boxes! Once the discount stickers go on, ravenous brawlers start throwing punches in a knockdown, drag-out war over who gets to take home the cheap eats. When a young, broke high school student named Sato joins the Half-Priced Food Lovers Club, he proves to be a rising talent in the world of insane food fights. But does he have what it takes to become the king of clearance cuisine? From the director of Black Cat comes a very different type of hunger games. Welcome to the world of Ben-To, where chopsticks are lethal weapons, the supermarket is a battleground, and there’s nothing more delicious than a deep-fried win.
