You’ve no doubt seen these ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos, and now our time has come. Recently, Voice Actor Todd Haberkorn challenged FUNimation, giving us a great opportunity to raise awareness for ALS. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”, is a serious disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Make your donations and help treat and cure ALS today on www.ALSA.org.

FUNimation has already made a donation, but we went ahead and created an ice bucket video anyway – in the most epic way possible. As the challenge goes, we’re nominating our pals at VIZ MEDIA, Aniplex USA, Sentai Filmworks, and Crunchyroll.
