Funi Acquires Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari

Funimation announced that they have acquired the rights to Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari AKA Saint Knight’s Tale. They’ll be releasing it as Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar. This series is a 13 episode OVA that follow’s Tenchi’s half-brother, Kenshi, as he finds himself stranded in an alternative world. The series will be dubbed into English and hopefully released sometime early next year. I caught the digisub when it first came out a few years back and quite liked it. I’m very excited for a physical US release.

Funi also announced that they have gotten the rights to the “complete Tenchi franchise”. Last I heard, the only Tenchi series that don’t have the rights for are Pretty Sammy TV (Magical Project S), Pretty Sammy OVA and the Mihoshi Special. Of course, if they wanted to showcase the full extent of Kajishima’s Tenchiverse, Funi would have to pick up Dual!, Photon and Spaceship Agga Ruter. At any rate, put me down for a Blu-ray set of Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari and the original Tenchi OVAs.
