FUNimation teases us with a Ben-To website


Yes please!

[Edit: It seems that FUNimation have secured the streaming rights. One step at a time!]

Well, who honestly saw this coming? Ben-To, the anime that depicts the atrocities of discount bento combat, might finally have been licensed. While it was generally well received, it didn't seem like it had done well enough to justify a trip outside of Japan. Considering it aired back in 2011, it certainly seemed like the time had passed for any kind of announcement. 

While FUNimation have yet to specifically mention a license deal, we can see that they've already prepared a Ben-To website, complete with a blurb about what the show is about. I can't see why else they'd do that unless they were planning for a release. 

Excited? I sure am, but I've got to wait and see if someone will pick it up for a release in Europe. It's a little rough around the edges, but I thought Ben-To was a pretty fun show and I'd definitely pick it up given the chance.
