Where my anime fans at? Some new heat is on the way for the Spring 2019 season. Funimation just took to the internet to reveal what new shows you can expect for being a subscriber to their Funimation Now service. According to our informant, Funimation has four new shows coming and four returning shows. I’ve listed the new shows arriving with brief synopsizes below.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Simulcast Saturdays, Time TBA)
Bloodthirsty demons lurk in the woods, and nobody dares to venture out at night, save for the demon slayer of legend. Surviving in this harsh world, young Tanjirou takes it upon himself to protect his family–until the day that everything is taken from him in a vicious slaughter. Now, all he has left is his sister, and she’s not even human anymore.
We Never Learn: BOKUBEN (Simulcast Saturdays, Time TBA)
Nariyuki Yuiga needs a special scholarship, but he has to tutor three genius girls to get it! One is a literature virtuoso, but her skills in science are lacking. Another excels in math, but the arts are in her heart. The last one’s athletic prowess is unmatched, but she struggles with everything else. With university application deadlines on the way, can Nariyuki teach the unteachable in time?
YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World (Simulcast Tuesdays at 11:00am ET – SimulDub Premiere TBA)
During the summer, Takuya Arima receives a package—from his missing father—detailing the existence of parallel universes. He investigates further and soon realizes that he’s been given the key to cross-dimensional time travel. Now, Takuya is forced to use this newfound tech to unravel the mystery of his father’s whereabouts and find out why those closest to him are keeping secrets.
Fruits Basket (Same-Day SimulDub Premieres April 5, 2019)
Tohru Honda thought her life was headed for misfortune when a family tragedy left her living in a tent. When her small home is discovered by the mysterious Soma clan, she suddenly finds herself living with Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Soma. But she quickly learns their family has a bizarre secret of their own: when hugged by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Zodiac!
