Funimation Confirms Fall 2021 Anime Schedule

Funimation has confirmed its anime schedule for the Fall 2021 anime season! The final episodes of the Summer 2021 anime slate are airing this week, and that means it's time to gear up for the next new wave of anime coming our way to bring the year to an end. There are several major hits that are highly anticipated coming in the next few months, and this includes not only some major series returning for new episodes, but the debuts of brand new original series and adaptations as well. Now fans have an idea of where to look as Funimation has announced which anime fans will be able to check out with them this season. 

Funimation has announced the first additions to their Fall 2021 anime schedule. This is on top of the continuing simulcast and SimulDub releases for series such as One Piece, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2, Scarlet Nexus, Obey Me! and more. These new additions include returning hits such as Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation and Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon, and brand new drops like Mieruko-Chan and more.
