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.

Eiji Suganuma (El Hazard – The Magnificent World, Karneval) is directing the project at asread and Tear Studio, with Toshie Kawamura (Glitter Force, The World God Only Knows: Goddesses Arc) providing character designs. Masashi Suzuki (Rail Wars!, The Sacred Blacksmith) is in charge of series composition for the title.

Funimation describes the show as:

After a high-frequency resonance echoes throughout Tokyo, various young people start developing blood-based supernatural powers.
