Newly release on DVD/BD combo pack just this week, FUNimation has already updated their EVS membership schedule to provide Sakura Wars: The Movie for streaming. The feature, originally released by Geneon Entertainment a decade ago and acquired this summer by FUNimation, is getting its first high definition presentation on home video. But the streaming side isn’t missing out as it will be getting both a dub and sub streaming run on the FUNimation service, which went through a complete overhaul this month. You can find the feature here to watch if you’re an EVS member.

Just as a fresh face joins the ensemble, other members begin to vanish one after another.
