The surreal mystery of Higurashi will continue! We’re excited to announce that Higurashi: When They Cry – SOTSU will arrive this July on Funimation.

Higurashi: When They Cry – NEW debuted in Fall 2020 and quickly gained interest from longtime fans of the series and newcomers jumping in for the first time, as its early twists and turns proved unique in the horror and psychological anime space.

Things got a bit wild when it was revealed that the “true” title of the series was Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU, and that it was actually a continuation of the original series! And now, the next chapter has been revealed.

Fun fact: The kanji for SOTSU and GOU together is sotsugyou 卒業, which means “Graduation,” and is a big part of the story in GOU.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Brandishes “SWORDGAI The Animation”

HOUSTON, TX March 23, 2021 — Sentai announced today that it acquired distribution rights to brutal action series SWORDGAI The Animation for audiences in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Scandinavia, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and Latin America.

In this world, sentient, powerful swords rain death on a powerless populace. Gai Ogata’s parents are murdered by Shiryu, a cursed blade with an endless thirst for blood. From childhood, Gai is transfixed on Shiryu, training as a blacksmith in hopes of someday surpassing the sword’s deadly guile with a creation of his own. But when another tragic turn of events costs Gai his arm, his master repurposes Shiryu into an unconventional prosthetic, binding Gai to the bloodthirsty weapon permanently. Now Gai must learn to control the sword’s most violent impulses before he faces Zsoltgewinn, the legendary sword so powerful that no mere human can wield it — and only one of these legendary blades will come away from the clash victorious.

SWORDGAI The Animation is a production of Production I.G (Haikyu!!, Attack on Titan, Ghost in the Shell) and DLE (Dog & Scissors, Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san, Aokana: Four Rhythm Across the Blue). It is directed by Takahiro Ikezoe (episode director for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, KenIchi: The Mightiest Disciple, Big Windup!) with series composition from Toshiki Inoue (Ushio and Tora, Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist), the series’ original creator.

The series stars Yuto Uemura (Ahiru no Sora, Run with the Wind, Bungou Stray Dogs) as Gai Ogata, Yuichiro Umehara (GATE, Young Jack Black, Gatchaman Crowds Insight) as Seiya Ichijou and Yuuka Aisaka (Chivalry of a Failed Knight, Sakura Trick, Amagi Brilliant Park) as Sayaka Ogata.

SWORDGAI The Animation will be released on home video.

Funimation Co-Production She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man Arrives This Year

We’re excited to announce the latest Funimation co-production, isekai fantasy She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man, will be arriving later this year!

From KADOKAWA and studio A-CAT (LBX Girls), She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man follows Sakimori Kagami, a young man who’s spent four years perfecting his avatar in the online VRMMORPG Arch Earth Online.

Going by the name Dunbalf, he’s known across the land of this virtual world. But one night before bed, Kagami uses an in-game vanity case that’s about to expire—opting to create his ideal version of a female Dunbalf avatar for fun.

Waking up, he’s surprised to find that he’s now in the body of the avatar he created the night before, and he’ll have to work his way from the bottom up! So he’s a young dude, playing an old dude, who is now playing a young girl—who is still that old dude.

Which brings us to Mira:

Mira is described as a beautiful summoner who identifies herself as Dunbalf’s pupil. And if you’ve been keeping up, you’ll remember that she is Dunbalf, which means her abilities are the same as his. Despite her youthful appearance, she speaks like an old man.

We can’t wait for you to meet more characters from the series! In addition to everything above, our partners at KADOKAWA have also revealed the first key visual for the series!

https://www.funimation.com/blog/wp-c...-Copyright.png

Based on the light novel series of the same name from Choko Fuji and Hirotsugu Ryuusen, She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man streams exclusively on Funimation later this year.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Snaps Up Acclaimed “Dororo” Anime

HOUSTON, TX March 29, 2021 — Sentai announced today that it acquired distribution rights to the critically acclaimed supernatural action series Dororo, based on the manga of the same name by legendary mangaka Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy, Black Jack). Sentai’s deal includes distribution rights for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Latin America, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and Nordic and Scandinavian countries. Sentai will release the series with an all-new English dub.

During the Warring States period, the young thief Dororo encounters the enigmatic “Hyakkimaru,” a strange, sightless boy who wields fearsome prosthetics in place of his missing limbs. Parts of Hyakkimaru’s body, skin and organs were traded to a group of 12 demons by Hyakkimaru’s father in exchange for power and prosperity, but thanks to a kindly medicine man, Hyakkimaru survived his horrifying ordeal. Now he wanders the land in search of his missing body parts, and together he and Dororo will fight to survive in a demon-plagued, dangerous and unforgiving world.

Dororo is animated by Tezuka Productions (Young Black Jack, The Quintessential Quintuplets) and MAPPA (Ushio & Tora, Inuyashiki); it is produced by Twin Engine (Karakuri Circus, Vinland Saga) and directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Hunter x Hunter). Yasuko Kobayashi (Kakegurui, Attack on Titan) provides series composition. The series stars Hiroki Suzuki (Saiyuki musicals, Kamen Rider Decade) as Hyakkimaru, Rio Suzuki (Modest Heroes, Yae no Sakura) as Dororo, Akio Otsuka (Black Jack, Mob Psycho 100) as Jukai and Chie Nakamura (Naruto, Devilman: Crybaby) as Nuinokata.

Sentai is planning to release the series on home video, including Blu-ray and digital sell through, beginning Summer 2021.

Kamen Rider Anime FUUTO PI Announced for 50th Anniversary, Coming to Funimation in 2022

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the legendary Kamen Rider series, Toei has announced the production of FUUTO PI, a Kamen Rider anime series that we’re excited to announce will stream on Funimation upon its release!

The news was revealed during a special Kamen Rider event highlighting 50 years of the iconic franchise. A historic show for Japanese culture, Kamen Rider still airs every Sunday in Japan. It first debuted on April 3, 1971.

Though the series has seen previous anime adaptations in the form of shorts or OVAs, FUUTO PI will be the first full anime series based on the live-action Kamen Rider program. FUUTO PI first debuted as a manga series in August 2017. The anime is planned for release in Summer 2022.

The story is canonically set after the events of Kamen Rider W (the 11th of ther Heisei era), which aired in 2009. It follows private investigator Shotaro Hidari and the mysterious boy Philip, two strangers who become one Kamen Rider!

FUUTO PI is said to “inherit the detailed background settings and the worldviews” of Kamen Rider W and the manga it is based on. Also revealed was a preview trailer for the series, the FUUTO PI logo and a special illustration commemorating the announcement and anniversary.

https://www.funimation.com/blog/wp-c...-PI-Visual.jpg

We’re so incredibly honored to be welcoming the legendary Kamen Rider into the Funimation family with the release of FUUTO PI, and we can’t wait to bring you more information as soon as we have it!

Big West Officially Recognizes Macross License by Harmony Gold

Big West has officially recognized the licensing of Macross (Super Dimension Fortress Macross) by Harmony Gold in the 1980s, ending decades of concern over the series’ rights outside of Japan.

Today, Big West and Harmony Gold announced that previous conflict over the Macross and Robotech series has been resolved, with Big West acknowledging the proper licensing of the series by Harmony Gold, and Harmony Gold recognizing the Macross spin-offs that Big West has produced since the series’ initial release.

Existing licenses of the series were confirmed to be unaffected by this news.

The series first released as Super Dimension Fortress Macross in 1982 in Japan, and was licensed by Harmony Gold USA (along with Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA) and released as Robotech in the United States in 1985.

In 2019, Funimation announced that it had acquired home video, streaming and merchandise rights to the Robotech series in partnership with Harmony Gold, with more info to come.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BIG WEST CO. LTD., STUDIO NUE, INC. AND HARMONY GOLD U.S.A. ANNOUNCE EXPANSIVE AGREEMENT FOR THE FUTURE OF ROBOTECH AND MACROSS WORLDWIDE!

April 9, 2021 - Tokyo, Japan & Los Angeles, California - Landmark agreement between the anime companies will allow immediate international distribution of most Macross television sequels and films, while affirming Harmony Gold’s rights to the Robotech franchise. Both companies will cooperate on the international distribution of future Macross and Robotech projects post 2021.

Tokyo based BIGWEST CO. LTD. and Los Angeles based Harmony Gold U.S.A. announced an agreement regarding the worldwide rights for the legendary Macross and Robotech franchises. This expansive agreement signed by both companies on March 1, 2021, ends two decades of disagreements and will allow Big West and Harmony Gold to chart a new path that will unlock the great potential of both the Macross and Robotech franchises worldwide.

The landmark agreement immediately permits worldwide distribution of most of the Macross films and television sequels worldwide, and also confirms that Big West will not oppose the Japanese release of an anticipated upcoming live-action Robotech film. The agreement also recognizes Harmony Gold’s longstanding exclusive license with Tatsunoko for the use of the 41 Macross characters and mecha in the Robotech television series and related merchandise throughout the world excluding Japan.

Moving forward, both parties will cooperate on distribution regarding future Macross and Robotech projects for the benefit of both franchises.

Big West Representative Director, Kaya Onishi added, “Stories that feature Valkyries, a transformable realistic mecha, in action among the galaxies while diva's sing in the background, as well as love triangles involving the pilots and singers. That was and continues to be the concept behind the Macross series, and I am happy that I can now help bring Macross to people all over the world on the 40th anniversary of the series. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Harmony Gold Chairman, Frank Agrama for his courageous decision in this matter.”

Harmony Gold USA Chairman, Frank Agrama stated, “This is an incomparably historic moment for both Harmony Gold and Big West and the anime industry overall. This is also an exciting moment for fans of Robotech and Macross worldwide. I thank my friend, Big West Representative Director, Kaya Onishi for her hard work to help us reach this long-desired resolution that protects both of our franchises while building a better tomorrow for both our companies.”
