After bringing out these three series previously as they aired as simulcasts, FUNimation has now picked up additional rights for Date-A-Live II, Dragonar Academy and NO-RIN. It’s not surprising to see them grab Date a Live II as they released the first season on home video last year to good results. The second season will be released on Blu-ray and DVD Combo in 2015. They also grabbed Dragonar Academy, which makes sense since it trended well for them, and ‘ll also be released on Blu-ray and DVD Combo in 2015. The listing of NO-RIN fits in with the style of shows they often get, but details are unavailable yet about when it’ll be released and what formats, though hopefully that information will come sooner rather than later.
Check out the first episodes of the series below if you missed them the first time around!
