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.
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.
FUNimation also announced the English cast for the anime series–Red Data Girl.

Shy 15-year-old Izumiko Suzuhara has trouble fitting in. Not only was she raised by her grandfather at the local shrine with little exposure to the outside world, but modern communication devices like computers or cell phones strangely crash whenever she touches them. After her childhood acquaintance, the handsome but prickly Miyuki Sagara, suddenly reappears and enrolls in her school, Izumiko learns that she is the last vessel of the goddess Himegami, and Miyuki is forced to serve as her guardian. Although the two of fail to get along at the beginning, their meeting marks the beginning of a shift in Izumiko’s destiny.
