After over 6 months of the English translated version of the Reborn! manga being on hiatus, Viz Media now has returned it’s support to the series by announcing a weekly streaming of the series Anime adaptation, with 5 episodes being released each Wednesday in the US, uncut and subtitled.
This has come after much confusion upon whether Viz would drop the series since the hiatus began. This can be considered a good sign for fans as Viz also announced they had licensed the anime for both distribution and streaming, hinting at a potential English dub of the series. Fans have taken to Viz Media’s facebook page in a show of support for the series and Viz Media, you too can jump in on the action here.
Reborn! tells the tale of a young japanese boy, Tsuna, who is told by an professorial hitman (who happens to be a toddler) that he is next in line to become the 10th Generation boss of the Vongola Mafia Family. As all other heirs were killed off by some circumstance or another and he is related to the first boss in some, distant, hardly related kind of way. This baby hitman, is tasked with training Tsuna to become the 10th generation boss, he is destined to become. Needless to say, it is pretty great.
Viz will be streaming the series only to US residents with currently the first 5 episodes online, but Aussies can view all 203 episodes on Crunchryoll. So don’t worry everyone gets a piece of the Reborn! pie.
