Nice to see another old ADV title pop up in Sentai's listings... it has a fun dub from what I recall.

Sentai and ADV had already released a complete collection of this a while back and both seasons have been streaming on Anime Network for at least a year. This is actually the second time they will be offering the complete series. Sentai has had season 2 for a while, while ADV still had season 1. Not sure which label(s) will appear on it this time.

Angel Beats is a definite buy on bluray. I will also be grabbing Hidamari Sketch. I was starting to worry they may not pick up more of it and I'm glad I was wrong.

In addition to Orphen Season 1, they also nabbed Burn Up!, Those Who Hunt Elves, and Sakura Wars (TV Series).

Doesn't Sentai have access to ADV's old catalogue by default? Orphen wasn't exactly a stellar show to begin with, but hopefully it will do pretty well.

Excellent news about the Angel Beats Blu-ray now only if we could get a official release of Bakemonogatari on Blu-ray.

No, they are legally separate entities. ADV's series are overseen by AeSir holdings. When they are released, like season 2 of Orphen on their last complete collection, and Princess Tutu, they still have the ADV logo.

When the last collection was released, ADV still had season 2. I don't know if that's changed or not. We likely won't know until the set is released. It appears the last complete collection Sentai released is out of print and sold out on most sites, so it couldn't have done too badly.

YES, more Hidamari Sketch is most welcome, I'll definitely be picking it up. And nice to see Angel Beats get a release date, definite purchase as well. I might get Allison to Lillia, we'll see, and I'll have to look more into Orphen.

Mostly the early boom era stuff from around 2004 and before.

This means they probably still have alot of Monster Island dubbed titles as well as a few Streamline stuff.

Nearly all the " early boom" stuff has expired. Contract lengths are usually 5-7 years. The majority of ADV's dubbed catalog has expired, with the exception of Elfen Lied, Rahxephon, Evangelion, E's Otherwise, Azumanga Daioh, Best Student Council, Super Milk Chan, Sister Princess, Mezzo and a few others. However, not all of these licenses still include DVD rights. Some only have digital or TV rights at the moment.

Also, Sentai and ADV are legally two separate entities. That's why the last Orphen Collection had both the ADV and Sentai logos on it. Sentai just can't take an ADV title and release it on DVD. They would have to acquired home video rights for it first.

As far as I know, all of the old Streamline titles have long since expired. None are streaming online or download, and none have been offered on DVD in a few years.

Now that I know Angel Beats is coming to Blu-ray, that recently purchased Blu-ray player I got seems totally justified.
