Believe it! Today, Funimation announced a distribution partnership with the iconic VIZ Media, including plans to bring an expansive catalog of legendary anime titles to the Funimation streaming service!

But there’s more where those came from, and this legendary partnership is only just beginning. Take a look below at the next batch of VIZ Media titles headed to Funimation!


Coming to Funimation on September 22

Terra Formars (2014) & Terra Formars Revenge (2016)

In the far future, humanity seeks to resolve Earth’s growing overpopulation problem by terraforming Mars as their second home. Five hundred years later, the United Nations Aeronautics and Space Administration sends out an expedition team to explore this new world.

But an unintended side effect of the terraforming process has unleashed a horror no one could ever have imagined: the planet has become infested with Terra Formars, man-sized cockroaches that prey on humans.

Now humanity must bring together all its scientific resources and power to counter this monstrous threat, or face total extinction.

All 26 episodes, available subbed and dubbed in the United States and Canada.


Coppelion (2013)

In the not-so-distant future, a catastrophic event has turned the old capital of Japan into a wasteland, forever changing the lives of its people. Decades later, three schoolgirls set foot into the now forsaken city.

They are the Coppelion, genetically engineered humans created by the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force to operate under the lethal conditions of the contaminated city.

Trained since birth, the girls must use all of their skills and resources to carry out their one and only mission: to rescue those left behind.

All 13 episodes, available subbed and dubbed in the United States and Canada.


Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet (2013)

In the distant future, Ledo, a young soldier from space, wakes up and finds himself marooned on an ocean planet. Growing up in space, and knowing nothing but battle, he is a stranger in a strange land, full of odd customs and a foreign language, but he’s not alone.

Starting a new journey on this verdurous planet, Ledo must find a way to survive and reconcile the fact that he may never be able to return home!

All 13 episodes and two OVA episodes, available subbed and dubbed in the United States and Canada.


Megalobox (2018)

Bored, resigned, and unfulfilled, a young man with neither name nor past survives by fighting in underground matches of a sport called “Megalobox,” a form of boxing that utilizes powered exoskeletons. Calling himself JNK.DOG, he feels trapped in a world of crime, poverty, and ecological collapse.

All that changes when he has a chance encounter with Yuri, the reigning king of Megalobox. Now, obsessed with proving himself, JNK. DOG becomes a man driven to do whatever it takes to fight his way to the top of the rankings and take on the champion.

All 13 episodes, available subbed and dubbed in the United States and Canada.
