We got our review in this past week for FUNimation’s release of Wanna be the Strongest in the World!, but there’s still more promotion coming from FUNimation with a pair of dub clips that have arrived. The two new clips both clock in at about three minutes each and highlights some of the action and intensity of women’s pro-wrestling and all it entails, making for a lot of fun to be had here. The series got a complete series release in limited edition form on June 2nd, 2015, priced at $69.98, where it includes two episode commentaries, the six short-form bonus OVAs and the clean opening and closing sequences. The dub itself is being directed by Joel McDonald and has a pretty fun cast that includes:

Originally known as Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai!, FUNimation previously brought he series to their streaming service with the entire run available with FUNimation subscribers able to get all twelve episodes in high definition as well in its original Japanese language form.
Plot concept: The eye-popping world of women’s professional wrestling is sweaty, sadistic, and savagely sexy. Famous Japanese pop idol Sakura Hagiwara is better suited for the dance floor than the wrestling ring, but this ravishing songstress is about to put her body to the ultimate test. When she and fellow idol Elena are assigned to pose as wrestlers for a very special show, a vicious lady brawler by the name of Rio decides to teach the girls a lesson they won’t soon forget. Rio unleashes a flurry of ferocious of attacks on Elena, contorting her divine female form into an array of very naughty positions. Shocked by the blush-inducing beating taken by her friend, Sakura vows to get her heavenly curves ready to rumble and redeem the good name of idols everywhere by becoming a bona fide diva of the pro-wrestling world!
