FUNimation Announces Home Video Rights To 3 Simulcasts

"Devil Is A Part-Timer", "Hetalia The Beautiful World" and "Senran Kagura" all due next Summer

FUNimation has taken to the early weekend to excite fans of three of its most popular Spring simulcasts, as the anime distributor has announced home video releases for The Devil is a Part-Timer, Hetalia: The Beautiful World, and Senran Kagura after seemingly keeping quiet on the status of home video releases for these titles all year long.

 

 FUNimation Summer releases

 

All three series are due to be released next Summer with Hetalia only getting a DVD release, while The Devil is a Part-Timer and Senran Kagura will be receiving Blu-Ray/DVD releases. Specific dates for each are also expected at a later date. Below, the synopses for each show.

 

The Devil Is A Part-Timer
Foiled by a hero when he’s inches away from conquering the world, the devil finds himself in modern-day Tokyo. With no real-world skills to speak of, the devil is forced to make ends meet flipping burgers at a fast food joint! To stall any further plans of world domination, the hero tracks the devil’s trail and takes on the lowly tasks of a telemarketer.


Hetalia: The Beautiful World
The Allied guys and Axis boys are back in Hetalia: The Beautiful World! It’s Season 5. As in high-five! And when we high-five, a tiny kitten appears with a wee banjo! And he’s playing a song about a cupcake and it’s freaking adorable! But then Prussia shows up and yells at the kitten. But the kitten doesn’t get sad, because, dude… Claaaassic Prussia.

 

Senran Kagura
Curvy Asuka and her girlfriends are typical high school students – except that they’re secretly learning the ways of the ninja! Get an education in action-packed naughtiness and sexy slapstick fun, as Asuka’s gorgeous gang takes on the hardest-hitting – and hottest – fighters in town!

 

Anyone looking forward to these on home video? I was a huge fan of Devil Is a Part-Timer when it was simulcast, so I'll definitely pick that one up for sure.
