    "*" = Not officially confirmed



  • It should be noted that even though it hasn't gotten an official date yet, Anichart is still showing Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond as debuting in the Spring lineup. So I'd assume that would be another one of Funi's pickups.

    I agree, but there's a lack of official confirmation of BBB S2 coming out in April. All that's really has been announced is that it's coming out in 2017, and the lack of any real promotional video or confirmation article this late in the game seems odd.

    If they do announce it for April / Spring I will of course update the list.



  • Saekano 2 will be on Amazon/Strike since it's a noitaminA show.



  • So what are the chances of Crunchyroll streaming Attack on Titan Season 2? I'm assuming it's a possibility since they streamed season 1 even before the Funimation partnership? That's really the main thing I care about.



  • @classyspartan Well does this mean Toonami getting a Attack on Titan Season 2 English Dub soon????



  • @gohan6425 Not soon, but eventually; if memory serves me right, the dub began broadcasting a few days before the first half was released on Blu-Ray and DVD. I expect the second season will be dubbed and broadcast on a similar timeframe.



  • @gohan6425 Certainly a possibility, but as of this time no news has come out on this yet.

    AND SPEAKING OF NEWS......

    https://www.funimation.com/blog/2017/03/01/my-hero-academia-season-2-simuldub-stream/#more-18042

    I timed this thread quite well. I figured My Hero Academia would be coming this Spring, but in a SURPRISING TURN OF EVENTS, for at least the first six episodes, all premiere episodes of My Hero Academia will launch, both the sub and the dub version on the exact same day.

    Basically think of what happened with Akiba's Trip this season, or Space Dandy years prior. So yeah, safe to say I am quite excited about this development and really curious to see how things go



  • @classyspartan Wait what My Hero Academia??? I hope for Attack On Tians the be able to show at the same time the Japan like Crap Space Danny it would be the right choice to do it for...



  • @classyspartan HOLY CRAP!! I thought the "same-day dub" process wouldn't kick into high gear for at least another year or two.

    You know, when I first read the blog post I thought all of the first six episodes would show up on the same day, like what happened with ReLife.



  • No guarantees after ep 6. good decision. Production schedule will no doubt be slipping by then

    @gohan6425

    that depends on how far ahead of schedule Studio Wit is. if they can complete episodes on time then maybe the dub can be just as fast as My Hero.



  • Will be interesting to see whether My Hero Academia will remain a FUNi exclusive. I'm dreading the thought of having to resubscribe to FUNi and having to use the broken website and apps.



  • @Rejectedshadow You could resubscribe via VRV.



  • @classyspartan I probably would've done that had I not already resubscribed yearly to CR last month. Looks like I might have to bite the bullet on this one and resubscribe to FUNi separately.



  • @Rejectedshadow Granted you could just connect your Crunchyroll account at this point now and buy the whole premium package. It's a thought but I understand. Part of the reason why I haven't just gone all into the VRV package is my Funi renewed this month.

    Personally, I'd rather they dub Attack on Titan S2, Old School. While Simuldubs are all well and good, their quality has been all over the place, with only 1 or 2 shows each season I'd rank as a solid B rating or better, and it usually depends on the cast size.



  • @Series5Ranger AOT will be on Toonami not Funimation Now that much I know for sure...

    Be careful with the wording you got there. The SUB for Attack on Titan Season 2 will be on Funimation NOW. As for the dub, it is certainly possible that it may air on Toonami first, but as of right now this is PURE SPECULATION!!!

    Believe me, when I get word about the dub for Season 2 getting announced for Toonami I will be on that hot piece of news.



  • @classyspartan Well Season 1 Air on Toonami and I 99.9% SURE there getting Season 2... Just like with Sword Art Online that got 1 and then that 2 two years later...



  • By the way here's the link Neregate for Spring 2017: (Classy has the Live and Anichart in the first post)

  • @Series5Ranger
