Funimation’s UK & Ireland Autumn 2020 Anime Simulcast Line-up: Adachi and Shimamura, Attack on Titan, Higurashi, Mahouka & More

With a couple days left to go before the new anime season begins, streaming service Funimation has licensed dozens of titles and partnered with Aniplex of America to simulcast a couple of their titles for their slate (one of which has been confirmed for this list).

The list below are currently all of the anime that will stream for the United Kingdom and Ireland territories. There are two anime titles that will not stream in the UK & IE territories due to licensing, which is Yashahime: Princess Half Demon and the on-going series One Piece.
