Funimation Announces A3!, Sorcerous Stabber Orphen, Smile Down the Runway Simulcasts

Three new titles will stream in January

Funimation announced additional titles for their Winter 2020 simulcast and dub lineup. Originally based on the mobile game, the TV animation adaptation A3! Season Spring & Summer will begin streaming on 13 January. 

Funimation describes the show as:

Mankai Company is a far cry from its glory days as an all-male theater. With only one member left and debt collectors at the door, it’s no wonder Izumi Tachibana finds herself in over her head when she boldly confronts the yakuza’s loan sharks, promising to bring her father’s theater back into the spotlight. She might be able to recruit enough talent, but can they bloom into the actors she needs?

Sorcerous Stabber Orphen will simulcast on 7 January. The show is described as:

From Studio DEEN (Fate/stay night) comes a remake celebrating the 25th anniversary of the series! Orphen is a powerful sorcerer who is notoriously lazy. Everything changes when he finds a way to save his sis, who was turned into a dragon during their days at magic academy. Betrayed by friends who refused to help, Orphen will stop at nothing to track her down, even if he has to go it alone.

Based on the original manga by Kotoba Inoya, the TV anime adaptation of Smile Down the Runway will simulcast on 10 January. 

Kodansha Comics describes the series as:

Chiyuki Fujito has a dream: to become a Paris Collection model. The problem is, she’s too short to be a model, and everyone around her tells her so! But no matter what they say, she won’t give up. Her classmate, a poor student named Ikuto Tsumura, also has a dream: to become a fashion designer. One day Chiyuki tells him that it’s “probably impossible” for him, causing him to consider giving it up … ?! This is the story of two individuals wholeheartedly chasing after their dreams in spite of all the negativity that comes after them!
