Simulcast by Funimation
Funimation releases their dubbed version of the anime's episode during the same time frame as the Japanese episodes are released. Currently, the streaming service is available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland.
Funimation produced the official English dub for all three seasons of the series so far. For Season 2, the dub had a backlog of six episodes (English dub was 6 episodes behind the latest Japanese episode's airing). In Season 3, the dubbed episodes were released on the same day as its Japanese counterpart up until the release of Episode 49 (with the original proposal being only the first six episodes of the season). After that point, the dubbed release of the season had a backlog of two episodes. Episode 39's premiere was delayed due to a delay in receiving dubbing materials.
