Yurikuma Arashi is directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara, the director of Revolutionary Girl Utena and some of Sailor Moon, and is receiving very favourable reviews from fans of Ikuhara’s past works. Unlike with the other recent English dub announcements, FUNimation has not stated whether or not they have the home-video rights to these three series.
