The fall 2015 anime series Seraph of the End was handled by Funimation for its releases previously in simulcast and home video runs and now it’s popping up elsewhere. Through the partnership with Crunchyroll, the full twenty-four episode series is now available for streaming in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. The dubbed version remains on Funimation’s site. The show was originally acquired when Funimation was doing limited pickups so it’s only available to viewers in the United States, Canada, and South Africa.
