Funimation Fall 2021 Anime Lineup Includes The Heike Story and More

Funimation has a lot of exciting anime planned for their fall lineup. More than 20 shows are expected to air, including returning anime favorites like Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation and Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon to brand new and exciting series such as Ranking of Kings, The Heike Story, and The Vampire Dies in No Time. All shows will have a subbed or dubbed version.

Sadly, one of the most anticipated anime of the season, Demon Slayer season 2 is not on the list yet, as it has not received a release date. We do know that the new season is expected this Fall, so hopefully, it will not take long for Funimation to specify a release date for it.
