From Dubbletalk to geeky sundries, Funimation’s taking their act online. Er… again.
Earlier today, Funimation announced that they will collaborate with online broadcaster Geek & Sundry to produce a new anime-based show. The new show, titled Anime Gateways, aims to introduce fans into the world of anime by offering show recommendations to fans of popular TV shows, comic books, and video games. According to Funimation, the series will explain how anime and pop culture relate in a “fun and humorous way.”
