Funimation’s panel at Otakon 2018 was one that was layered with a look ahead as they’ve got a pretty packed month for November set, which is no surprise as they want to get a lot of things into stores ahead of the Christmas holiday. This month is welcome as we get two titles announced waaaay back in 2013 finally getting their time in the spotlight with former Bandai Entertainment titles Angel Links and Tales of the Abyss getting releases.
