Hulu brought on the simuldub for the Dies Irae anime way back in May 2019 and it looks like that’s close to wrapping up. The series from Funimation is now listing a thirteen-day countdown to when it’ll expire on the service and we’d see both the simulcast and the simuldub shuffle off. There’s always a chance for renewal but it’s why we encourage people finish out any viewing sessions that they’re on with it now in case a renewal doesn’t happen.
The series was directed by Susumi Kudo based on the series composition by the original game scenario writer Takashi Masada. Takaaki Fukuyo served as the character designer.
