Netflix Reveals Original Anime Dev Slate For 2019/2020 ; Funimation Teases “Attack on Titan” Return Which Should Point To Adult Swim Return Date

Monsters unite.

Funimation is teasing Attack on Titan Season Three Part Two coming in April, however, that’s not as important as what will probably be Adult Swim continuing the series in English dub format. With Funimation announcing an April 28th return of what will probably be the Japanese original language edition, we can most likely count on Adult Swim to continue airing the English dub on their Toonami lineups come April 27th. This is not confirmed, just conjecture at this juncture. Megalobox is nearly finished with it’s run and Sword Art: Online is nearly done as well, so we could have some open spots on the late-night lineup.

Netflix has announced co-production deals with a number of anime production companies to unleash on us a slew of original titles, some of which are inspired by the streaming services’ live-action original series. Here’s a list of what’s in development now. We’re unsure if everything will be dubbed in English, we’re pretty sure they will be, but the streaming service DID post up a third season of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. that wasn’t dubbed for English, so we’ll see what we can glean from this list:


Altered Carbon: Resleeved – anima Inc.
This anime feature spin-off, set in the same universe of the Netflix live-action sci-fi series (second season in production from Skydance Television), will explore new elements of the story mythology.

Dragon’s Dogma – Sublimation Inc.
Based on a world-famous action RPG set in an open world, Dragon’s Dogma from CAPCOM will be brought to life as a Netflix original anime series.
