With the Fall 2020 anime season wrapping its final few episodes of the new releases, Funimation is now focusing on Winter 2021.
The anime season looks incredibly stacked due to all the previous delays caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation.
Funimation has already announced the first additions to their Winter 2021 anime line up, and on Saturday, it came up with two more exciting announcements.
Funimation announced that it is producing an English dub version for The Gymnastics Samurai anime, also known as Taiso Samurai.
The American entertainment company also announced that it will stream the anime adaptation of Yūki Yaku’s Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki light novel series from January 8.
Mappa has been very busy throughout 2020, with anime like God of High School, Jujutsu Kaisen, and The Attack on Titan: Final Season. And yet, the animation studio came up with an original sports anime that increased fan’s interest in gymnastics.
The first English dub episode is already released, featuring the following cast:
|Jotaro Aragaki||Christopher Wehkamp||Shota Aizawa (My Hero Academia)|
|Rei Aragaki||Jill Harris||Noelle Silva (Black Clover)|
|Leonardo||Brandon McInnis||Sir Nighteye (My Hero Academia)|
|Tetsuo Minamino||Austin Tindle||Isao Kifune (All Out!)|
Coming to the other announcement on Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki, if you are fond of romantic comedy stories, then this anime adaptation will surely be worth your time.
The story follows Fumiya Tomozaki, a socially introverted and pessimistic high school student, who only specializes in gaming. But things change when he meets a beautiful girl who is the exact opposite of him.
The anime’s opening and ending theme, “Jinsei Easy?” and “Ayafuwa Asterisk” respectively, will be performed by voice actress idol group DIALOGUE+.
Fans are really looking forward to Funimation’s anime library for the Winter 2021 season. There will be tons of new releases alongside some major returns, so keep checking this site for all the latest announcements and follow-ups.
