We have a double bill of second season announcements - Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! and Rent-A-Girlfriend continuations have been greenlit.



Dandy Guy, in Space
A bit of a minor news "story", but Funimation have updated their home page. (It's been the same since I came on board with anime over 2 years ago, so I have no idea how old the old home page was)

Quite a nice design, with your watchlist and recent watch history on there too, which is an improvement.

But, it is showing anime that isn't available over here, which is a bummer.

Combat Butler
Only interested in On-Gaku And Lupin The First and since those are the two not streaming there's nothing for me so I'll give it a miss, was always going to be a limited year so can't be too upset about it.
