Funimation’s new website went into open beta today, and with it comes a couple announcements. Funimation will be simulcasting one of the new series from the noitaminA block, [C] Control – The Money and Soul of Possibility starting next Thursday, April 21st at 12:35 PM Eastern time.
The new site also revealed that Funimation had licensed Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, one of the latest series from Gainax. The series had previouly been simulcasted on Crunchyroll. No word on a release date yet.
For the new site, Funimation will not be using embedded Hulu videos anymore, meaning if you’re Canadian you can now watch their simulcasts and other videos. This was, in my case, the biggest problem with their streaming in the past.
Funimation announced yesterday that they would also be simulcasting Toriko.
