Anime to Watch First on Nintendo Switch

The Funimation App is now available on the Nintendo Switch, meaning you can experience your favourite anime in a brand new way! Whether you’re watching on your TV, on a commute or in bed, you can enjoy anime everywhere.

We’ve chosen some of the most popular shows that are available to watch right now subbed and dubbed, so dive in and lose yourself in the world of anime on Funimation.

Attack on Titan

Now’s the perfect time to experience the colossal series that helped shape a whole new generation of anime fans across the world!

So join Eren, Mikasa and Armin as they fight back against the Titan threat which has plagued humanity for generations.

My Hero Academia

Follow Deku on his journey to become the number one hero across all four seasons of My Hero Academia! What’s that, five seasons?! The fifth season begins airing this week, and follows Deku as he continues to harness his powers and fill the gap that All Might left behind.

You can switch between the anime and the video game, MY HERO ONE’S JUSTICE (and its sequel!) with ease on the Nintendo Switch. PLUS ULTRA!

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is the show that has taken the world by storm! Familial bonds, breathtaking action and gorgeous visuals blend together to create a shounen series which people can’t get enough of.

You can watch all 26 episodes right now to prepare for the sequel movie, Demon Slayer -Kimestu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train!

Kaguya-sama: Love is War

Love is a battlefield! This saying has never been more true than in Kaguya-sama: Love is War, where Kaguya and Miyuki love each other, but refuse to be the first one to confess. Filled with more laughter than you could possibly imagine, there’s only one way to find out how far their battle will take them!

A third season is on the way too, so there’s no better time to get watching. Don’t forget Funimation is the ONLY place you can catch both seasons of the series subbed and dubbed. 

Fruits Basket

After the comedic tone of Kaguya-sama: Love is War?, we are jumping into the dramatic world of Fruits Basket! You’ll find plenty to love in this character-driven and intense series, which won’t shy away from pulling on your heartstrings.

Now’s the perfect time to join Tohru as she learns more about the Soma family as Fruits Basket The Final Season arrives!
