We have an exciting announcement for you!
We’re doing something special with Akiba’s Trip The Animation. With help from both sides of the world, our teams here at Funimation and our partners in Japan, the first episode will launch 30 minutes after the Japanese broadcast — launching on FunimationNow, tomorrow at 8:00am CT!*
Going forward is going to be something new as well. We plan to continue working closely with our partners in Japan so that new SimulDub episodes for Akiba’s Trip will launch as close to the broadcast time in Japan as possible. Right now, our goal is 30 minutes after Japanese broadcast time — the fastest launch of any SimulDub show this season! However, this is a new process for everyone so there likely could be some delays in the future, and we ask for your patience as we do our best to bring you episodes as early as possible. That being said, we’re excited to try something new this season and will keep fans in the loop as we continue this journey together!
So, without further ado, meet the cast English SimulDub cast for Akiba’s Trip, premiering 1/4/2017 at 8:00am CT!
