Series Summary:

Sio Ogura is a shy misfit who’d rather talk about tanks than gossip about girl stuff. She’s plagued by reoccurring dreams of ancient battle scenes, and her only friend is a kindhearted popular girl named Asao. But Sio’s life takes an explosive turn when a school field trip is interrupted by an outbreak of Evolutionary Invaders: hideous alien creatures hell-bent on nuking the planet. During a daring attempt to rescue Asao, Sio discovers that she’s an E-Gene Holder: the reincarnation of a historical figure capable of summoning special weaponry. Possessed by the spirit of legendary warrior Oda Nobunaga, Sio joins forces with the reincarnated versions of Jack the Ripper, Galileo, and Geronimo for a high octane alien shooting spree. Survival is a longshot, but in the battle to save humanity, Sio’s the girl with the biggest gun!

Series Summary:

The eye-popping world of women’s professional wrestling is sweaty, sadistic, and savagely sexy. Famous Japanese pop idol Sakura Hagiwara is better suited for the dance floor than the wrestling ring, but this ravishing songstress is about to put her body to the ultimate test. When she and fellow idol Elena are assigned to pose as wrestlers for a very special show, a vicious lady brawler by the name of Rio decides to teach the girls a lesson they won’t soon forget. Rio unleashes a flurry of ferocious of attacks on Elena, contorting her divine female form into an array of very naughty positions. Shocked by the blush-inducing beating taken by her friend, Sakura vows to get her heavenly curves ready to rumble and redeem the good name of idols everywhere by becoming a bona fide diva of the pro-wrestling world!

Arc Summary:

When an unstoppable force descends upon Magnolia and Fairy Tail, the entire town is transported to Edolas, a world where magic is in short supply.

As Natsu and company search for their friends, they discover a parallel plane where a tough-as-nails Lucy runs a bizarro version of Fairy Tail and Erza is a ruthless enemy.

Then Edolas power-hungry monarch harnesses the power of the Dragon Slayers, igniting all-out war. But his ambition doesn’t stop there: once Natsu and his teammates are out of the picture, he’s heading to Fiore to steal all of its magic as well. Fairy Tail’s actions will decide the future of two worlds, but they’ll be lucky if they can save even one.

 

FUNimation Spring 2015 Simulcasts – Continuing Shows

Almost time for a new season to begin! I’m sure you’re all wondering if we’ll be able to top last season, but first, let’s get some housekeeping out of the way. Take a look below at our continuing simulcasts for Spring 2015.

 

a_classroom_key_0564Assassination Classroom

 

synopsis:

Forget about homework and pop quizzes. The students of Class 3E have a far more important assignment: kill their teacher before the end of the year! A tentacle-d sensei that moves at Mach 20 is out to conquer the classroom after destroying seventy percent of the moon. In addition to reading, writing, and arithmetic, the murderous monster behind the lectern will teach his students everything he knows about the assassination game. Should some eager beaver prove to be a quick study in killing, he or she will save Earth from extinction – and collect a hefty reward. But they’d better take some serious notes while class is in session because their slaughtering sensei has eight deadly tentacles just waiting to wreak havoc on humanity!

 

You can catch new episodes of Assassination Classroom every Friday at 1:50pm ET on http://funimation.com/assassination-classroom.

synopsis:

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!

Summary
The most epic magic tournament in history continues as Fairy Tail attempts to snatch victory from the strongest guilds in the Grand Magic Games. The competition heats up as the guilds in the competition start playing dirty, Erza takes it upon herself to challenge one hundred deadly opponents, and four dragon slayers battle it out in an epic fight unlike anything the Fiore Kingdom has ever seen—one that threatens to rip the entire arena apart. But as the spells fly in the games, a conspiracy targeting one of Fairy Tail’s members plays out behind the scenes, and a dark, familiar magic permeates the air. With the magical world completely focused on the competing guilds, a looming threat gains power—but will anyone notice before it’s too late?

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.
