Welcome to the fourth batch of Autumn (Fall) 2019 anime simulcast announcements for distributor Funimation, you can view the earlier announcements here (however we will also recap the list below): first batch, second batch, and third batch.

Funimation will be presenting all of their titles through their streaming service Funimation Now. The titles below will vary on audio options but the region details will also be listed below.

Azur Lane

Based on the popular side-scrolling shoot ’em up video game by Chinese developers Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi, the anime is adapted by Bibury Animation Studio. The anime will be available in English and Japanese audio for territories United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The show is scheduled to simulcast on Thursday 3rd October at 9:00pm BST (8:00pm GMT) with the simuldub scheduled for Thursday 17th October.

About Azur Lane (via mobile game publisher Yostar):

Azur Lane features an interactive combat system that combines the best of strategy and 2D shooter games. Players must command a flotilla, divided into two parts: the Vanguard Fleet and the Main Fleet. While the Vanguard is responsible for striking and clearing operations, the Main Fleet must focus on fire support and dealing damage to enemy ships. Strategy is key, and players must build their fleets carefully to succeed on the high seas. Players can strengthen their fleets from the base via the Academy and Dorms, where they can earn experience points, buy items from the shop, or improve their skills in the Classroom.

The anime will be available in English and Japanese audio for territories United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The show is scheduled to simulcast on Thursday 10th October at 6:30pm BST (5:30pm GMT) with the simuldub scheduled for Thursday 24th October.

About No Guns Life:

Ex-soldier Juzo Inui has one question–who turned him into a cyborg and erased his memories?

After the war, cyborg soldiers known as the Extended were discharged. Juzo Inui is one of them, a man whose body was transformed, his head replaced with a giant gun! With no memory of his previous life – or who replaced his head and why – Inui now scratches out a living in the dark streets of the city as a Resolver, taking on cases involving the Extended.

When a fellow Extended showed up in Inui’s office – on the run from the Security Bureau with a kidnapped child in tow and asking for help – Inui should have just thrown the guy out. But Inui’s loyalty to a brother Extended makes him take the job. Keeping the child safe won’t be easy, since everyone seems to want to grab him, from street punks to the megacorporation Berühren, who have sent out a special agent that knows exactly how to deal with the Extended…

Here’s the overall list of titles coming to Funimation Now as of 10th October 2019!
