by AJ Adejare

Funimation decided to drop one last bit for their Otakon panel.  They announced the following series:

Assassination Classroom is so successful for Funimation, they’re going in for the second season.  Coming out in 2016, the anime has little details but we expect it to continue where the last season left off.

Funimation also announced a movie trilogy called Project Itoh.  Named after late Science Fiction author Satoshi Itoh, Project Itoh adapts his novels and have three parts:

  1. Genocidal Organ Gantsta and Ergo Proxy director Shukou Murase will be on the project with Manglobe (Mitichko and Hatchin)
  2. Harmony: Directors Takashi Nakamura Michael Arias with Studio 4C as animation studio
  3. The Empire of Corpse which will have Ryoutarou Makihara of Monster and Summer Wars direct with Studio WIT (Attack on Titan) as animation studio

Finally, they got Speed Racer! Speed Racer will have Japanese Audio with English Subtitles with a Blu Ray Release.  The timing of the series release has not been confirmed.
