Grav's Thoughts:

Well now it seems we have a lot of titles for this slate.

Catalogue:
D.Gray-man [Season 3 Part 1]

Continuing Titles:
Dragon Ball Super [Part 2]
One Piece [Season 8 Part 3]

Winter 2015:
The Testament of Sister New Devil

Spring 2016:
Space Patrol Luluco
Super Lovers

Summer 2016:
Alderamin on the Sky
Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School: Despair Arc
Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School: Future Arc
Orange
ReLIFE
SERVAMP

Autumn 2016:
Drifters

Danganronpa 3 is out, in fact both arcs are getting released which is great. You may have noticed it's split as arcs, while it makes sense from a business perspective it's actually a problem. The anime is designed so that you're supposed to watch Future's first episode, then Despair's first episode, and so on. The Japanese Blu-ray sets have done this so I don't understand why Funimation didn't follow suit, then again Funi are incompetent and dense most of the time.

Crunchyroll's partnership finally takes shape with six titles getting released in the same month; Alderamin on the Sky, Orange, ReLIFE, Space Patrol Luluco, Super Lovers, and Testament of Sister New Devil. All except Super Lovers have English dub options available for folks who like dubs, in addition they are all Blu-ray & DVD combos. While I can't guarantee it, it seems they're all listed as UK compatible in some form.

The rest are as expected to be quite honest. More Fairy Tail and One Piece sets as expected. I know folks are asking about where on earth is the final Fairy Tail part that covers Fairy Tail Zero, well I have no clue either. Perhaps Funimation wants to release Collection 11 before releasing Zero.

Overall an pretty interesting slate, so here's what is left. Note that Junjo Romantica 3 is no longer on the list and that's because Nozomi/Rightstuf have acquired the home video rights so they'll be the ones releasing it on Blu-ray in 2018.

In addition I also added Crunchyroll titles based on season. Note that the ones that don't state [Dubbed] under the Crunchyroll titles may not be released under Funimation, but it is worth noting that Crunchyroll themselves have released them under some form (for example Steam release).
