guilty crown must have done bad for them to push it out so soon

It's currently getting released in France (2 Blu-ray/DVD combo sets) and Tawian (DVD singles). So sometimes it's about the Japan licensors wanting to get the product sooner rather than later.

Latest update after Sakura-Con (for full updates, check the first two posts).

As of right now, I have 16 listed properties (above ♦♦♦♦♦♦) that should/could be released sometime in 2013. 6 properties slated for the summer months (assumed to be at least July to possibly September).

If this scenario (Fairy Tail S2, One Piece S5, Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail, The Future Diary, and Guilty Crown) plans out for July to August/September with no other new releases (not counting the Fam delay), that leaves 3 more months for at least 10 properties. I would think that's very possible leading up to the holiday season.

Technically not true. They can't license something that the Japanese company that owns it has not put up to be licensed.

Or release stuff that has restrictions placed on certain series. Funimation tends to go out of their way to please fans. I don't get the hate at all.

A "we're working on it" would be fine; a "we've dropped it like the dead rotting fish it is" {like Tatami Galaxy} would also be acceptable. No comments on old shows as they only get older is neither.

"Robotics;Notes will be dubbed"
No, I didn't expect it to be Funimation's first subbed only home release but thanks, Funimation, for keeping me abreast on the show that just finished airing.

Maybe I need to fault the quality of the Q and A'ers. Why can't they ask pertinent questions for a change?

Or maybe you're just complaining for complaining's sake and need to have some patience like everyone else.
