Funimation Announces Slew Of Home Video Releases


Funimation is not slowing down their content after they successfully acquired fellow anime streaming service Crunchyroll in a billion-dollar deal. Apart from announcing new English dubs, the Sony subsidiary announced a whole host of DVD releases for their anime.

“Welcome to this month’s home video solicitations. And though the word “solicitations” might sound boring, it’s actually very exciting, because it means there’s a whole mess of new anime announced that you’ll probably want to add to your shelf,” they wrote on their website. “Because we definitely will be adding to ours.”


The releases include:

  • The Rising of the Shield Hero – Season 1 Complete (Blu-ray + Digital)
