News: FunimationNow confirms Cheer Boys!! and Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan for UK streaming

FUNimation confirmed four more of their summer simulcasts today, and three of those will be going out to the UK and Ireland through their FunimationNow service. The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance is restricted to the US and Canada, but otherwise we can look forward to the shows listed below.

Cheer Boys!! premieres on July 5th, given the following description by FUNimation:

Haruki Bandou was born into a family of Judo marital artists and expected to continue the family legacy. But he’s about to trade Judo for…cheerleading?! When his childhood friend Kazuma Hashimoto invites him to join the BREAKERS, a male cheerleading club, Haru finds himself amongst a quirky group of boys. Can this squad of slightly odd and cute members make a breakthrough in college athletics?

The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., which adapts Shuichi Aso’s Shonen Jump manga Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan, is described by FUNimation:

Kusuo Saiki is a typical 16-year-old high school student… except he has psychic powers. He can use them to get whatever he wants, but he also knows everything that people are thinking. Everything. No surprises, no secrets, no normal human experiences. He’s kept his powers in check since childhood, but with the temptations of high school now on his mind, he’s bending the rules—and spoons.

And Puzzle & Dragons X, which is tied to the Nintendo 3DS puzzle role-playing game, will premiere in Japan on July 4th and is described by FUNimation as follows:

From the Studio Pierrot, that brought you Kingdom and Tokyo Ghoul comes a series based off of the hit game Puzzle & Dragons. Dorogoza Island is rich in “Drop Energy” that players can use on friendly monsters. Once strong enough, they can face enemies in puzzle wars. Winners reap rewards, but what happens to the losers? Only the brave can take on these monstrous challenges!
