I read on the UKAnime Twitter that Tiger & Bunny was announced to be out in February...reading so many conflicting things...

Also, MangaUK should just give up on the Conqueror of Shamballa bluray. It's a direct sequel to the 2003 anime that was released here on DVD ages ago by Revelation. No point releasing it unless they also rerelease the main series.

This is at least a vast improvement on yesterday’s announcements, even if there's still a fair amount of crap (Bakuman & Aria the Scarlet Ammo... really?).

I'll definitely pick up Children who Chase Lost Voices, Jormungand, Penguindrum & Un-Go. Break Blade, Space Pirates, Kids on the Slope, Tiger/Bunny, Mirai Nikki & Ga-Rei: Zero are also fine, if all a little too inconsistent to be essential for me.

I think Kaze seems to be putting the most effort into bring out interesting titles, while MVM also has a few good shows in their list. Manga Entertainment comes off in a far less positive note, personally speaking. Outside of sure-fire hits like Hosada’s movies, most of their releases are just dumb action/gore shows. Jormungand is pretty good, & King of Thorn is ok, but there’s little else of worth. Guess I’m just outside their core-demographic.

That's how Manga Ent. have always been though. They've made there business picking up those sorts of titles from the very beginning.

it's a shame most of these won't get blu-ray releases and i'll end up importing them, some good license pickups though!

Does this mean there will be a second season of Yumekui Merry (Dream Eater Merry)? Or is this for a blur ray disc. Please tell me. I now have my hopes up, and I desperately need a season 2 to Dream Eater Merry! Thanks Very Happy

The existing series of Yumekui Merry has been picked up. No second season has been picked up because it does not exist and I've heard nothing about anything being planned.
