Overlord anime boxed set release
Does Funimation have the licensing rights to the Overlord anime? If so, when will a subtitled version be released in the U.S.? If not, has anyone acquired them? I've been looking to buy the series, but the only ones I can find are the crappy versions from Malaysia.
Funimation does indeed have the rights to Overlord. As far as a home release goes, an exact release date has not yet been announced. Generally, the home video usually comes out around 12-16 months after the series finishes airing in Japan. Sometime it's not that long, sometime it's much longer. We'll update the forums with more information as soon as a release date is announced.
