Can't wait to get my hands on Railgun S! Cool

They didn't say they got BD rights of that, right?

So, Adult Swim will continue to simuldub Space Dandy in July? I love how that's almost like a footnote in the article.

That Red Data Girl english cast is another copy and paste casting job from Funimation outside of the new female lead.

I haven't heard Chris Burnett in a dub for a while, so I don't know what the hell you mean by "copy and paste".

The Japanese Blu-ray release will include an exclusive brand-new anime titled Daiji na Koto wa Zenbu Sentō ni Osowatta (All the Important Things I Learned in a Bathhouse).

That is incorrect. That episode will be bundled (as the article linked stated) with the Official Visual Book, not the Japanese Blu-ray release.

The announcement on their blog says:

The series will release on DVD in two parts this summer.

So still no BD it seems...

I am honestly shocked that it is getting a dub at all. I mean, I guess FUni dubs most (all?) of their stuff, but I didn't think RDG was really that popular.

Why the hell are they dubbing Red Data Girl? Not only is it bad, but the plot is heavily based around Japanese mysticism, so I don't think it even has any chance of appealing to Western audiences.

More hybrid releases coming my way. Can't wait to start buying anime again (it's been a while for me).

Also can't wait to stream the movie to A Certain Magical Index on Funimation when they finally add it. I'm holding off watching it elsewhere for free just so I can see it there, and probably subsequently purchase whatever disc edition they release. That also goes for season two of index.

I would assume the streaming numbers for it were good.

Yea, I'm just as surprised. I generally drop shows very quickly, but I gave this a try and gave up at around episodes 9 or 11. I guess I wanted it to be good, but it was so boring and awful.
The OST is nice though.

I'm also on the boat of why RDG was licensed. It was so convoluted and apparently didn't even have the real ending when it was so close to it.

Even though I wouldn't buy RDG, it still deserves a BD release for PA Works' efforts in making parts of it stunningly gorgeous.

Wait what about Index 2? Has that already been announced for release and I just missed it, or I think releasing Railgun 2 first.
