Michiko to Hatchin!! Oh my god, I'd given up hope of this ever getting licensed... How perfect, I'm so happy! Very Happy

I am happy I can get the rest of Ikki Tousen without having to go the fansub route. They also two of the shows that I am interested in this season streaming so I am happy with that.

Never mind i misread that..

Anyway Glad to see the Blood-C series and movie get licensed. I'm a fan of the franchise and have liked both the Original movie and Blood+ and wanted to see the clamp take on the whole thing.

Everything else though doesn't interest me at all and some of it is outright terrible.

It's like Funimation and Sentai are having a contest for who can license the most shows nobody cares about.

Wait... They got the Blood-C movie without having the series? Does that make sense? Or are they unrelated in story or something?


Nah. They got the series, too.

I hate to be that guy, but when FUNimation was saying stuff like "the next couple shows are...big announcements...", and "we have the rights to...another certain franchise", and "this one's a classic...", was I only the only resisting the urge to yell "SAILOR MOON!" at the top of my lungs?

Glad to hear that they have more rights to E7 AO since I'm quite enjoying it and I feel like I've heard a lot of great things about Michiko & Hatchin over the years so I'll be sure to check that one out (and I guess that was the title from 2007 they mentioned back on ANNCast).

Just watched live and have to say Funi again miss more than hit lately. But hey they picked up E7AO recently and are brining more One Piece so im happy.

Still sad tho that Ben-To and Penguindrum continue to not be licensed. I thought both were shoe ins for licenses by now

After what CR announced, Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero seemed like something Funi would pick up.

I'm surprised that Funi picked up home media rights for Hidan no Aria - I guess it did well enough when streaming.

Agreed. That was a nice pick-up mainly for completion sake.

I'm beginning to think that they're victims of "weird licensing issues"

I also watched it live, and it was pretty funny how someone was shouting out about "didn't Media Blasters have the rest of Ikki Tousen?" which was met with quick (and kind of proud) evasion. I wonder what Media Blaster's Facebook wall is going to look like in the next few hours? Confused
