SDCC: Funimation’s "Crayon Shin-chan" to Air on Adult Swim
At the San Diego Comic-Con today Funimation revealed to Toon Zone that Crayon Shin-chan will receive a test run on Adult Swim in August. Funimation had licensed the series earlier this year. While there is an already existing English language dub produced by Phuuz Entertainment, Funimation will be creating its own dub for this release. Crayon Shin-chan began airing on Japanese television almost 15 years ago and it continues to premiere new episodes to this day.
Funimation also mentioned that the IFC channel is preparing to air Funi properties Basilisk and Gunslinger Girl. IFC previously aired Samurai 7.
