FUNimation’s February Dubs Include the Sadistic ‘King’s Game’ & Optimistic ‘ReLIFE’

     February 28, 2019


Funimation upped the maturity level across the board for their titles this month. There’s not one kid-friendly recommendation in the bunch despite such titles as A Sister’s All You Need and Kumamiko: Girl Meets Bear appearing in this list. The good news is that you don’t have to screen the adult material from the kids shows this time around, but the better news is that there are some bonkers offerings here that might just satisfy that weirdly specific anime itch you’re looking to scratch. Check out our latest reviews below.

For the uninitiated, Funimation is a U.S. company known for their dubs and domestic distribution of Japanese anime. So all of the reviews you’re about to check out are for the dub version of each anime, though some Blu-rays/DVDs have a Japanese audio option as there are some exceptions to the rule. Below, you’ll find the official synopsis for each movie and series, along with a link to pick up your own copy at Funimation’s online store, should my review convince you. Sometimes, it’ll be an easy thing to suggest you buy it, other times, it’ll be just as easy to go in the other direction.

Check out my rundown of Funimation’s home video selections from this winter season, and be sure to take a look at their 2018 summer selections, fall favorites, and winter titles as well. Plus, 2019 is starting off strong with these early (and rather randy) selections. You might just find a favorite you overlooked or a new addition to your catalog you might have missed.
