Funimation’s UK & Ireland Autumn 2020 Anime Simulcast Line-up Batch 2: Day I Became a God, Gymnastics Samurai, Moriarty the Patriot, Wandering Witch & More

Distributor and streaming service Funimation have recently added 14 more anime shows to their Autumn 2020 streaming line-up throughout the past weekend. You can view the first batch here.

Before we go over the new additions we wanted to quickly point out a few issues that have now been amended as of 5th October 5:00pm BST:

The first is The Irregular at Magic High School: Visitor Arc which is simulcasting for the US, Canada, UK & Ireland through Funimation since Saturday 3rd October. The distributor did not make the show page accessible for a few days, but has now been amended. Unfortunately the UK & Ireland do not have access to the first season which US & Canada viewers already have available.

The second is Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club which is simulcasting on Funimation for US & Canada. There was mixed messaging across Funimation’s platforms, but it has been confirmed that they do not have the UK & Ireland rights. Crunchyroll are streaming the series in Germany and there is no word if another distributor in the UK & Ireland have the rights to the show yet.

Back to the new additions of the Autumn 2020 line-up for Funimation, these titles below will stream for the United Kingdom and Ireland territories.
