Convention season is underway. The new announcements from Sakura-Con are coming in and Funimation has some amazing announcements that will only add to what looks to be the best upcoming anime season in several years. So lets not waste any more time and get right to the details.


Home Video Release: GARO: DIVINE FLAME

Garo returns as a film! Funimation has acquired the anime film for direct to home video release.

León, who has succeeded the name of Garo the Golden Knight, devotes himself to train a young Makai Knight for the next generation, together with Prince Alfonso of the Valiante Kingdom. Then, they receive an order to exterminate the most beautiful Horror in the world which resides in a neighboring country “Vazelia”. At the same time, a young Makai Knight for the next generation is kidnapped by an unknown person. León desperately follows them, only to find that he is surrounded by his enemies at a dead end. Then, a Makai Knight Dario who was supposed to be missing for some time suddenly appears and rescues him. Under his guidance, León is led to the town where he meets up a totally unexpected person.

The home video release is set for later in 2018. No specific date was given.

Home Video Release: Assassination Classroom the Movie: 365 Days’ Time

The killer class is back in session—sort of. Relive every moment that made you laugh, cry, and kept you on the edge through the eyes of the top two students: Nagisa and Karma. Reminisce with them about the time spent in Class 3-E from the moment Koro Sensei appeared to his final moments. This is a look back at the adventures of being assassins in training! The film is a recap film and will have the same cast and crew from seasons 1 and 2. Current release date on home video is July 3rd.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Movie Trilogy 

Sunrise announced at Anime Boston that Funimation has licensed the recap film trilogy for Code Geass. The films will recap all 50 episodes of the original series. The original cast returns to re-record all their lines. New scenes will end up in the recap films, so they are worth checking out. The first film is titled Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch Kōdō (Code Geass: Initiation). The second film is Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch Handō (Code Geass: Transgression). The film film is titled Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch – Ōdō (Code Geass: Glorification).

Details regarding Funimation’s release of the films will be announced at a later time. This acquisition bodes well for the possibility that Funimation will take on the license for the upcoming new season of Code Geass.

Home Video Release: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2

Sunrise also announced the home video release of IBO by Funimation for Summer 2018.
