Gotta love the classics. In partnership with Gonzo, Funimation has announced that it’s bringing three classic anime series to its official YouTube channel, completely free, for a limited time!
Starting September 2 through November 30, Funimation is adding Ragnarok: The Animation (in HD for the first time!), Burst Angel and Witchblade with English subtitles to its YouTube channel in the United States and Canada. So plan your schedules accordingly!
If you’re a longtime anime fan, these series might be familiar, but whether you’re returning to a classic or checking out something for the first time, this batch of 70+ anime episodes is the perfect place to start.
Here’s a quick rundown of each series:
Ragnarok: The Animation is based on a ’00s MMORPG of the same name. The fantasy anime is all about good versus evil, and follows our hero Yufa, as he travels the land with his companions, taking on monsters, magic and a date with destiny. All 26 episodes of the series will be available to watch on YouTube for the first time in HD!
Burst Angel follows Jo, Sei, Amy and Meg as they fight against corruption and twisted science to bring hope back to their bleak world. The citizens of their desperate city needed a hero and got four angels instead. Can these girls on fire take on the biggest fight of their lives? You’ll have to watch all 24 episodes to find out.
Based on the comic book character from Top Cow Productions, Witchblade is about Masane Amaha returning to Tokyo with no memories or direction! To make things more difficult, she finds herself “chosen” to unite with the Witchblade, an ancient and powerful weapon of ecstasy and pain.
The lines of pain and pleasure blur as Masane struggles to remember who she is before she loses her soul. This sexy series has 24 high-octane episodes for you to enjoy for a limited time.
Three different takes on heroes, but equally entertaining! Ready to dive in? You can watch them on Funimation’s official YouTube channel. What will you watch first? Share this post and let us know! And stay tuned to Funimation for the latest news on all things anime, this season and beyond.
