North American anime distributor Funimation announced at its panel at Katsucon on Saturday that it has obtained the rights to the comedy series Level E. The 2010 television anime adapted a comedy/science-fiction manga series by Yoshihiro Togashi (Hunter X Hunter, Yū Yū Hakusho) into 13 episodes. The story follows a high school freshman who moves into his own apartment, only to find that it is already inhabited by a strange man who claims to be an alien, and suffers from amnesia.
Funimation did not announce DVD or Blu-ray release plans, but did announce that the series will be available on various streaming platforms beginning in March. Crunchyroll streamed the anime into several countries as it aired in Japan.
