Funimation’s Winter Titles Include ‘Iron-Blooded Orphans’, One of the Best ‘Gundam’ Series Ever

     November 26, 2018


The gifts just keep on giving from the fine folks over at Funimation who were kind enough to send me a selection of their Winter 2018 anime offerings. If you’re curious about anime but haven’t watched any yet, or you’ve been a fan for decades, Funimation definitely has something for you to enjoy. And this round-up of selections has one of the best titles from a world-famous and fan-favorite Gundam franchise, if that does anything for ya!

For the uninitiated, Funimation is a U.S. company known for their dubs and domestic distribution of Japanese anime. So all of the reviews you’re about to check out are for the dub version of each anime, though some Blu-rays/DVDs have a Japanese audio option as there are some exceptions to the rule. Below, you’ll find the official synopsis for each movie and series, along with a link to pick up your own copy at Funimation’s online store, should my review convince you. [Feel free to bookmark some of these for your own holiday wish lists or as gifts for the anime fan in your life!] Sometimes, it’ll be an easy thing to suggest you buy it, other times, it’ll be just as easy to go in the other direction.

Check out my rundown of Funimation’s home video selections from this winter season, and be sure to take a look at their summer selections and fall favorites as well. You might just find a favorite you overlooked or a new addition to your catalog you might have missed.

The following titles from Funimation’s winter catalog are presented by audience age, youngest first:
