The guardians and the great hunters are gathering under the violet banner.

Earlier today, Funimation announced that they will produce SimulDubs for Hakyu Hoshin Engi and The Silver Guardian 2. Details on casting and première timing will be announced at a later date.

Hakyu Hoshin Engi

Hakyū Hoshin Engi is based on Ryu Fujisaki’s Hoshin Engi (Soul Hunter) manga. The show will be helmed by Masahiro Aizawa at C-Station, with Yoshimitsu Yamashita (Blade of the Immortal, Samurai Flamenco) providing character designs. Natsuko Takahashi (Yuyushiki, Fantastic Detective Labyrinth) is in charge of series composition for the project.

Funimation describes the show as:

The Hoshin Project: a mission to seal away the evil immortals that infest the world. After his clan is wiped out by a beautiful fox demon, young Taikobo is suddenly in charge of this project. Burdened with this destiny, Taikobo finds himself with quandary: how do you destroy demons when it was a demon that trained you? It’s a battle to find the truth and who to trust, all while saving the world.

The Silver Guardian 2

Haoling Li is taking the reins as chief director and writer for The Silver Guardian 2. Ken Ando (Ar Tonelico OVA) will take the director’s chair on the project at Emon Animation Company, while Yoshiaki Tsubata (Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~, Souten no Ken) returns as character designer.

Minako Seki (Kingdom, Black Clover) is scoring the show’s soundtrack. Studio BLADE is listed as providing animation assistance.

Funimation describes the series as:

Secretly in love with Riku Rei, the most popular girl of his school, Riku Suigin is forced to dive in “Grave Buster”, the new virtual game where Riku Rei has been kidnapped.

To save her, he will have the support of the beautiful Twin Star and in addition to that he has inherited a 10 billion of yen charged device by his grandfather Ruki Yuuki.
