FUNimation Confirms ‘Chaos Dragon’ Anime Acquisition

4 min read

Chaos Dragon HeaderFUNimation briefly listed Chaos Dragon on their site earlier today, which has been removed, and we reported on that here. The distributor has now sent out their latest press release talking about the summer 2015 anime simulcast season and have listed Chaos Dragon within it while also providing a summary for the show, further cementing its acquisition.

The list still only accounts for nineteen shows, so there’s one more coming. Most best are on Dragon Ball Super, but it feels like there’s a need to hedge on that being a simulcast, not that we doubt FUNimation will end up with it.

Misora Whitale has all the enthusiasm to be a leader, but she’s failed 100 consecutive tests.

It’s up to Kanata Age to train the troubled trio to become accomplished Sky Wizards.
