What's New on FUNimation Channel August
Hiya! Hard to believe its August already and the fall season is just up ahead. Its a good thing the FUNimation Channel has you covered on VOD & on the linear network during those hot, August nights ( 😉 to Mr. Neil Diamond).
First up, let’s talk about titles on VOD. We’re going to debut Nabari No Ou later this month 😯 . How late? Hmmm…some time around August 21stish. FUNimation just revealed the cast and here we are providing the show waaaay before it hits the streets. Crazy! Since the show will debut under the PPV VOD service, remember that the first episode is a free preview episode while the rest of the eps go for .99 cents per ep.
A couple of OVA will air under the Movies-Specials folder: Burst Angel OVA , CLAMP double feature Tsubasa Chronicle movie: The Princess in the Birdcage Kingdom and xxxHolic movie: A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Jing King of Bandits: Seventh Heaven. For Jing, the OVA will run at 1 hr 30min, meaning that the 3 eps will run continuous as a full-length feature. Air the Movie is also airing this month.
Darker Than Black will debut this month on 8/14 under the FREE offering. And Cosplay Cuties has a few more new eps added today that will run through to Sept 4th. The girls do all sorts of fun things around Tokyo like checking out the batting cages and riding the coaster at the amusement park. They also stayed at one of those Capsule hotels and give us the inside look at being in those tiny things.
In the previous post, I mentioned something about titles that used to air under Anime Selects before the May switchover. Starting in September, we will debut the folder Anime Selects on Free VOD under Cutting Edge —–> FUNimation Anime channel. The titles that are slated to go up are Gundam SEED Destiny and Vampire Princess Miyu. 🙂
