At the end of April, UK otaku started noticing that a few FUNimation titles had appeared on Amazon UK. With FunimationNow also seeing the advent of the US-based distributors streaming to Britain and Ireland, anime fans in our neck of the woods have been getting antsy about whether that meant future FUNimation home releases. Well, all has been revealed, and we’re happy to say it’s all good news.
