Funimation Licenses A3!, Orphen, and Smile Down the Runway

Three new winter shows will be joining the lineup subbed and dubbed

 

Winter simulcasts are coming, and Funimation has just laid claim to three shows premiering next month! The trio of titles, all announced on their Twitter, will all be available subbed and dubbed during the new season.

 

First up is A3!, about a young woman hired to direct four troupes of handsome actors. The series, based on the mobile game of the same name, will run in two sections, with the game's Spring and Summer troupes being the subject of the first half:

 

 

Next is Sorcerous Stabber Orphen, a new adaptation created to celebrate this year's 25th anniversary of the original light novel series. Showtaro Morikubo will be returning to the role of Orphen, which he first played in the 1990s:

 

 

Finally, Smile Down the Runway will also be joining the line-up. The new adaptation of Kotoba Inoya's manga follows a pair of fashion world hopefuls—a too-short model and a poor and timid fashion designer—as they help each other achieve their dreams.

 

 

The winter anime season kicks off next month with these titles and more!
