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 produces the official English dub for all four seasons of the series so far, as well as both movies. For Season 2, the English dub was six episodes behind the Japanese release.

In Season 3, the dubbed episodes were released on the same day as the Japanese episodes until the release of Episode 49, with the original advertisement of the season stating only the first six episodes of the season would receive this treatment. After that point, the dubbed release of the season had a two-week delay for each episode. Episode 39's premiere was delayed due to a delay in receiving materials, making Episode 40 the start of the season's simuldub.

In Season 4, the dubbed episodes followed a same-day release schedule up until the release of Episode 73, followed by another week's delay after Episode 77 due to a delay in receiving materials from Japan.
