I'd just downloaded Blacksmith. Now i'm deleating it and haven't even had a change to watch it. I'm vary much against watching fansubs of licensed shows, even if I downloaded them before licensing.

At least it's gonna clear up a little memory space on my PS3.

Oooo, very interested in The Sacred Blacksmith. It's been on my To-Watch list since the fall preview. I might give Hetalia a chance since it's only 5 minutes a pop and will now be available in dub form, but I'll wait to see what the price point is.

I am excited for Hetalia. I had a hard time watching the fansubs and having them in crisp clear images on my TV will be a better watching experience.

Have not heard of the other title though. Might have to check it out.

Overall very disappointing altogether this year.

Absolutely nothing I wanted was licensed.

But I will still check out Hetalia.

Just very sad that they couldn't get Higurashi Kai. I just watched the first season and it would have been awesome to have them announce the second season right after I watched it.

The Sacred Blacksmith is absolutely a perfect fit with Funi and I assumed they would pick it up. Very happy to hear my assumption is now actually a fact. I'm also predicting that there will be a second season, as well.

Oh Hetalia.

I wonder how they're going to release it.

I ... think I just stopped breathing for a second.

Words cannot express how excited I am that Funimation is dubbing Hetalia.

If you'll excuse me, I'm going to do a brief dance of joy now.

More stuff I've not heard of except for by name - well, for Hetalia anyway. Never heard of the other one at all.

More research time ahoy!

I think Funi will make more announcements about releases that may come out this year so this is not like a be all end all for announcements.

Blah FUNimation. What happened? Last year was amazing in so many ways, and this year was - putting it very lightly - a piece of shit.

I have literally no interest in buying any of these licensed titles, including all of that Asian film crap. I'm an Anime fan, not a fan of everything Asian. There is a difference between a weeaboo and an Otaku you know.

I hope they announce some better titles at their next big convention.

Not really interested in either of these, but I might give them a try when they stream them (assuming they actually load.) I was expecting more of a "bang" on Friday, but it is what it is.

If they goof on Hetalia, heads will roll. If Vic Mignogna gets a part, heads will roll. So heads will probably be rolling. =/.
