FUNimation Licenses Level E and Sengoku Basara- Samurai Kings Film

North American anime distributor Funimation announced at its panel at Katsucon on Saturday that it has obtained the rights to the comedy series Level E. The 2010 television anime adapted a comedy/science-fiction manga series by Yoshihiro Togashi (Hunter X Hunter, Yū Yū Hakusho) into 13 episodes. The story follows a high school freshman who moves into his own apartment, only to find that it is already inhabited by a strange man who claims to be an alien, and suffers from amnesia.

Funimation did not announce DVD or Blu-ray release plans, but did announce that the series will be available on various streaming platforms beginning in March. Crunchyroll streamed the anime into several countries as it aired in Japan.

Also they announced  that it licensed Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings: The Movie. The company plans to release it on home video in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Released in Japan as Sengoku Basara - The Last Party -, the feature film was announced in 2010 after the final Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings 2 television episode. The film opened in Japan in June of 2011. The film continues the story after the fall of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, as Japan plunges into chaos and subordinate Ishida Mitsunari looks to seek revenge against Date Masamune. Funimation has previously released both Sengoku Basara television series in North America.
