Two New Simulcast Licenses by FUNimation

American Publisher FUNimation has Acquired two new Anime Series.

Yuri Kuma Arashi

The first one is the upcoming anime Yurikuma Arashi from studio Silver Link which produced Strike The Blood and NourinKunihiko Ikuhara will direct the anime, while Etsuko Sumimoto created the character design. The main voice cast consists of Nozomi Yamane as Kureha Tsubaki, Miho Arakawa as Ginko Yurishiro and Yoshiko Ikuta as Ruru Yurigasaki.

A manga adaption, with illustrations from Akiko Morishima, runs in Gentosha's Seinen magazine Comic Birz since February 2014.

FUNimationAfter an asteroid explosion and meteor shower lit up the sky over planet earth, strange adorable bears began to attack and devour humans. The earthlings responded with violence of their own, and in the end, a massive barrier – the Wall of Extinction – was erected to separate man from bear. This fragile peace lasted until two high school girls encounter a yuri flower blooming – only to be shaken by the piercing warning of the Bear Alarm! Once again, bear and man- or bear and girl -will be pitted against each other in a deadly and mysterious showdown

FUNimation didn't announce the exact time when the anime will be streamed, but it can be assumed that it will be a simulcast release.

Absolute Duo

The second acquisition is the upcoming anime Absolute Duo from animation studio 8bit. Atsushi Nakayama is set to direct the production, while Takamitsu Kouno created the scripts and Atsushi Hiraasawa is composing the music for the anime.

The anime series is based on Takumi Hiiragiboshi's Light Novel series. The light novel runs in Media Factory's magazine MF Bunjo J since August 2012. There are currently seven volumes published. There are also two manga adaptions. Both run in the Monthly Comic Alive magazine. The first one since April 2013 and the second one since October 2014.

The main voice cast will be Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Tooru Kokonoe, Nozomi Yamamoto as Julie Sigtuna, Haruka Yamazaki as Lilith Bristol, Ayaka Suwa as Tomoe Tachibana and Aya Imamura as Miyabi Hotaka.

FUNimationIn a world of heroes who wield magical weapons known as Blaze, Thor Kokonoe’s manifests instead as a shield. Things aren’t all bad for Thor, though: he’s enrolled in an elite school that pairs students up into Duos, and his own partner is the beautiful Julie Sigtuna, a silver-haired exchange student who wields a wicked pair of blades. Along with a bevy of Blazing beauties, Thor’s high school adventures are just beginning!

FUNimation didn't announce the exact time when the anime will be streamed, but it can also be assumed that it will be a simulcast release.
