"Brave Witches" takes place in between seasons 1 and 2 of "Strike Witches."

At their base in Petersburg in the Empire of Orussia, the 502nd Joint Fighter Wing "Brave Witches" prepared to receive orders to deploy... With the hope of mankind at their backs, the courageous Witches of the 502nd take to the cold skies over eastern Europe.

Eylstadt is a small country that lacks a strong military force and natural resources. Finé, who is the crown queen of Eylstadt, decides to use a secret weapon against larger countries, in a time where battling against larger countries was unthinkable. The secret weapon is a witch named Izetta, who uses her magical force to fight the war. The young witch Izetta (who is the same age as Finé) is the last survivor of her kind, and is notable for her burning red hair.

Izetta uses her enormous magical power to crash fighter planes and blow up tanks. As Eylstadt starts to win battle by battle with Izetta, people around the world start to call her “Eylstadt’s Red Witch”. However, there were reasons why witches were hidden throughout the history.

Fall; time to get back to school with a high-school romance! We’re excited to tell you that the anime film I’ve Always Liked You will be streaming exclusively on Crunchyroll starting Tuesday, October 4 at 10am PDT for members in the following territories: North America, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Ireland.

The film centers on high school students Natsuki Enomoto (voiced by Haruka Tomatsu) and her childhood friend Yu Setoguchi (voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya).

While Natsuki hides her true feelings for Yu, she is asked by her classmate Koyuki Ayase for a date. The story features the sweet but sometimes bitter trials and tribulations surrounding young romance.


The story was inspired by an album from Vocaloid band HoneyWorks. The movie will also feature many of their popular rock songs.

Don’t miss out on this beautiful and bittersweet story.

Happy Friday everyone! We've got a couple of things to get you started on the weekend, including another Fall 2016 title announcement! (Remember, NANBAKA is also coming!)

Starting tomorrow, September 17, HEYBOT! will be joining the simulcast lineup Saturdays at 4pm Pacific Time worldwide except for Asia.

The story takes place on Screw Island, a screw-shaped island nation where people make audiences laugh through the practice of "VocabBattles," heated gag contests in which "VocabBots" place "VocabScrews" on their heads and compete to come up with the funniest joke. Everything in this world is decided through VocabBattles!

The unlikely duo of Heybot, the bungling VocabBot protagonist, and his partner, the easygoing prince Nejiru, are the stars in this ridiculous gag story! Various other unique, silly-but-cute VocabBot characters appear throughout the series, challenging Heybot and Nejiru to one VocabBattle after another. And thus begins the day-to-day adventures of Heybot and Nejiru as they strive to win VocabBattles and collect more screws!

Surprised to see a dub announced so soon after the Funimation deal - I thought all dubs would be there going forward. Anyway, looking forward to the rest of the fall announcements.

I was a bit surprised at that myself.

Reading the announcements from both sites carefully, I have found statements on Funi that they will move (and remove from their own site), a large quantity their own subtitled shows to CR, barring any specific licence agreements where they wouldn't be allowed to do so. The exact wording was "the majority" in one statement, and "most" in another statement.

In return, they get CR's existing dubs for streaming (again, barring any sub-licensing and/or country-related restrictions) and the rights to dub and/or distribute disk releases for additional titles that Funi decides to select from CR's catalog, (presumably if CR holds the disk rights), and for distributing any titles on disk that CR was planning to do.

But notably, I did not see it stated anywhere on either site whether or not CR will actually remove any of their own (very small catalog of) existing dubs once Funi also gets them... So the door has been left ajar on whether there will still be some dubs here. This announcement makes it seem that there will be. But then again, it could be that this was just some rare leftover that was already in the works before the announcement.
