When distributor Funimation previously revealed they will be streaming and simulcasting the third season of Log Horizon, known as Log Horizon: Destruction of the Round Table (Log Horizon: Entaku Houkai), fans were left wondering about the status of the first two seasons which were once licensed, streamed and released by Sentai.
That changes as Funimation announced they will be bringing the first season of Log Horizon back to streaming via their platform, after Crunchyroll and HIDIVE both delisted the episodes for a short period of time. All 25 episodes will be available starting today at 2:00pm GMT dubbed and subbed. The dub is expected to be the same one produced by Sentai.
Log Horizon: Destruction of the Round Table will simulcast every Wednesday starting 13th January at 12:00pm GMT.
