It’s summer, which means it’s time for swimming. And red nobility, apparently.

Earlier today, Funimation unveiled two new titles in their Summer 2018 SimulDub lineup. The publisher will stream the following:

  • Lord of Vermilion: The Crimson King
  • Free! -Dive to the Future-

Details on both SimulDubs will be announced at a later date.
