NEWS: TEN NEW SHOWS ADDED TO FUNIMATION’SBROADCAST DUB LINE-UP
It hasbeen three months since FUNimation announced the Broadcast Dub initiative–fueled
by the overwhelming popularity of the Space
Dandy dub broadcast on Toonami–which aired PSYCHO-PASS 2 and Laughing
Under the Clouds. FUNimation has now announced the addition of ten more
shows to this endeavor, and are showing signs of continuing this trend.
the three hottest shows FUNimation added to the roster are to be aired on
Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET, starting February 18. The scheduled order is:
Assassination Classroom, Death Parade, and Tokyo Ghoul √A, followed by a live stream in partnership with
ScrewAttack Entertainment called “DubbleTalk.” This stream will include episode
recaps, contests, fan Q&A’s, guest appearances, and more.
addition to this Wednesday night block, there are two phases with more shows
being introduced, though without a live stream afterwards. The two phases are
- The Rolling Girls – Saturdays at 12:58
p.m. ET starting February 21, 2015
- World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy
– Sundays at 11:05 a.m. ET starting February 22, 2015
- Kamisama Kiss Season 2 – Mondays
at 1:35 p.m. ET starting February 23, 2015
- Absolute Duo – Mondays at 1 p.m.
ET starting March 16, 2015
- Yurikuma Arashi – Mondays at 1:30
p.m. ET starting March 16, 2015

a.m. ET starting March 22, 2015
this new content, with the exception of the DubbleTalk, will only be available
to FUNimation All-AccessPass subscribers. It looks like if you didn’t have a
reason to get one before, you do now.
has always been good to their fans, and this is just another example of their
dedication. Gen Fukunaga, founder and CEO, took note of the “overwhelmingly
positive response to Broadcast Dubs” and said that “this is where the future is
headed.” This is a good indicator that FUNimation intends to continue adding
new shows to their Broadcast Dub line-up.
fans are definitely responding in a positive way, so hopefully this trend
continues to grow. However, dubbing is a strenuous process and voice actors are
sometimes called upon at last minute to enter a studio and read their lines
immediately, so hopefully this schedule doesn’t put too much pressure on the
voice cast. More news on future line-ups from FUNimation as it is released.
