Regarding the Home Video Rights for Free! Iwatobi Swim Club

We’ve been getting a lot of questions today regarding the Anime News Network Answerman column, where Justin Sevakis states that Crunchyroll holds the home video rights for Free! Season 1. We know that many of you fans have been very curious about the home video rights situation, ever since our initial announcement of the simulcast of season 2 (Free! -Eternal Summer-).

 

We would absolutely love to make an English dub for season 1 and distribute it on home video, and we would be more than happy to work with Crunchyroll to make it happen. We have reached out to Crunchyroll to see if they would be interested in collaborating on this release; however, we have not heard back yet. Stay tuned for future developments though—we’re excited to report that we will be announcing the dub cast for season 2 very soon, so please follow our Free! -Eternal Summer- Facebook page or Tumblr to be the first to hear the news!

 

 

 

Kick-Ass Anime Openings and Endings from Summer 2014

As many fans know, music is an important part of anime. An epic soundtrack can elevate the viewing experience when watching a series; and conversely, you may forgive a few weak plot points if the music is spot on. Each season brings new shows and that means new openings and endings! Take a look at some of the ones from this season below:

 

 

Tokyo Ghoul - Opening Song
Song: Unravel
Performed by: TK from Ling Toshite Sigure

 

Reasons you’ll love it: TK is the vocalist and guitarist for the J-Rock band Ling Tosite Sigure. You may remember them from the opening theme for Psycho-Pass. The haunting vocals and progressive rock sound perfectly capture the intense feel of this show.

Tokyo Ghoul streams Thursdays at 12pm ET. Click here to watch episodes now.
