Noting that they acquired it before even watching any of it, Animatsu has announced the UK pickup of the Punch Line! anime rights. With the series having finished its home video release last December for the spring 2015 simulcast show, Animatsu could bring it out to the UK anytime this year. Sentai Filmworks has the North American edition arriving in August, which did not receive a dub but did get a bilingual solicitation.
