In a world of streaming services, several different companies are attempting to corner the market in the field of anime. With the likes of Crunchyroll expanding their library with every passing day, Funimation is looking to stay one step ahead of the competition by adding some classic anime to their roster in the form of Astro Boy, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Martian Successor Nadisco, and more! With new anime series being released with each new season, it's a nice nod to what came before by Funimation adding some of these classics that acted as inspiration for some of the series that we know and love today!
Nozumi Entertainment is a studio for the company Right Stuf Inc., bringing back "collectors' grade releases for fans of all ages". With the likes of the classic anime of Astro Boy and the ground breaking series of Revolutionary Girl Utena, Funimation is showing their dedication to bringing anime from all across the spectrum to fans who are subscribing to their service regularly. Needless to say, these are some of the best classic anime ever released, so if you haven't had the chance to check these out, now is the perfect time to do so!
Funimation revealed the debut of these classic anime on their streaming service via their Official Twitter Account, giving fans a number of classics to watch at their convenience that show the inspriration for the medium across a number of different avenues:
