YAY for Shuffle getting an R1 license! Yet another title that I can take off my R1 Wishlist. Cool

Shuffle was another title that I saw at ColossalCon last year that I fell in love with. I heard that Kadokawa USA actually had the license for it a while ago, and was looking for a distributor. FUNi will do a good job with distributing Shuffle just as they are with the distribution of Second Raid.

Finally more people will gaze upon the greatness of Shuffle!.....They better leave the KKK = Kitto Kitto Kaede thing in there too Anime hyper Also wondered how they would pull that off for an American release Razz That being said, I never knew why I liked Shuffle!, but I just do... I think a big part may have to deal with the char's seiyuu, Yuria as Ama-san, Sugita-sama (I use -sama cause he is one of the best male seiyuu I've heard) as Rin, Yuko Goto as Kaede, etc. :O

That being said....WATCH IT...and I'll hopefully have a job so I can buy it Razz

*does happy dance* realizes he looks like an idiot and sits down*

OMG SHUFFLE IS FINALLY LICENSED!!! This makes makes me incredibly happy. Shuffle is one of my favorite drama/romance/comedy/ecchi animes ever!

Hearing this announcement has instantly woken me up!

May 22 for Tsubasa's release date?!? Man, that's so far away... I can't wait, though! I just hope the dub's good. It's gonna be tricky to find a perfect VA for Fai, ne?

Just so I can be sure, My Santa is Itsudatte My Santa, right?

If so, I can't believe it got licensed. First I find $5 bucks on the parking lot ground at my college and now an anime OVA I never expected to get licensed is grabbed by one of my favorite companies. Cool

SHUFFLE! looks great and I've heard some good things about it. Hope that Funi will license the Memories follow-up too. I've never watched either but I think the companies are honor bound to finish what they start by licensing all of a series if it's at least moderately profitable.

Anyway, these titles are both pleasant surprises!

Ahhh, Shuffle! Let's see how long the ANN reviewers can last with this one until they hit the later episodes which were far more talk-worthy! Cool

Yes it is Itsudatte My Santa (By Akamatsu-sensei)

AND Shuffle is truly an awesome show.

I don't know if memories will get a license unless Funi does well with this one (so buy it) And from what I've seen so far Memories is just a retelling... I'll have to see where it goes.

Cut and pasted from Aquarion thread:

WAHOO!!!! YES!! THEY ANNOUNCED TSUBASA!!!

There is massive fan-girl squealing going on right now at my house!

Oh, and they announced Shuffle & My Santa as well.


**heehee!** Tsubasa! Now hopefully, tomorrow's announcement will be xxxholic! I won't find out until tommorrow night though, I have to go back to work. Crying or Very sad

******
(New stuff)
And I just checked TSRI's website a couple of minutes ago and they have Tsubasa Vol. 1 and Vol. 1 w/art box listed. No photos of them yet.

I think a lot of people will be happy about the Shuffle! liscense. I'd like to see it since I've heard so many good things about it too. Itsudatte My Santa looks good too. Finally, a date for Tsubasa. It took a while.

OMG, finally!! It's about freakin' time that Funimation announced Tsubasa's release date. I can't wait until May. It's also great that Shuffle got picked up by one of the better companies out there. Shuffle's a good series, and I'm sure Funimation will do a great job with it.

EDIT: My Santa looks promising, I'm very interested in checking it out once it's released.

Funimation sent a C & D letter to the groups subbing xxxHoLIC a while back, so it's not impossible.

Glad to see Funimation has finally decided to do something about Tsubasa. I'd like to see how they'll handle the honorifics.(which is actually a plot point in season 1)
