Wait, FUNimation have the rights to Utena? No mistake? Isn't it still in print from CPM?

Oh my god!! I am a total Gaia Online addict and also like Tsubasa, so the fact that it's going to be promoted there has sent me into squeeing fangirl mode! Kya, kya, kya~!!! I'm assuming this means a Tsubasa-based quest!?

Looks like the panel notes have not been verified with the panel host...yet.

I'm at headquarters, not at the con, but I am a FUNimation rep. (sorry I had to miss Anime Boston for a second year)

[EDIT] Corrected on the report page. Deleting rest of message.

Thanks,

Lance Heiskell
Your Friendly Neighborhood FUNimation Guy

Ok. So, the whole One Piece thing...

I like the uncut episode releases idea. There will be new voice actors too right? I hope so...

"Editing out the actual impacts"? Like, editing out when a punch lands on someone? I'm assuming it's not talking about the impact dials. lol

Anyways...I also want to ask the rep: Are you guys coming to Fanime? It says on your website that you are, will there be a panel like this one?

Thanks for the update Lance, I am really interested in Mushishi when that does get released. I am hoping that the release date stays the same as noted in the article. I can't wait to see more of that series.

I can't wait for the Slayers rerelease. A friend of mine got me watching it after it had gone out of print, so I'll pick it up as soon as it hits the shelf.

A date for Slayers is nice but that's about the only good information coming out of this panel that is of interest to me.

While it doesn't suprise me, I'm disappointed that we probably won't be seeing any more of Kodocha (at least not anytime soon).

Since it wasn't mentioned in ANN's report, here is the relevant info from AoD:

AoD con report wrote:
One question asked by an audience was the status of Kodocha. Contradicting statements that were made at Anime Boston 2004, they now say that they have the rights to the first half of the series, or "first two seasons" as they're calling it. At AB 2004 when we had the little plastic baka hammers handed out, it was emphatically stated after being asked as to whether they have all of it. While sales numbers have obviously not been discussed publicly, the anecdotal evidence has been that the title is a poor seller. Kodocha may become the first series from FUNimation to not see a full release (discounting the missed episodes of Dragon Ball Z of course).


I'm hoping tomorrow's Geneon panel will have some good news for me (read: license announcements for MariMite and/or Nanoha).

Perhaps an announcement aboutOuran High School Host Club from somebody. I'd like to see Funi (but since they didn't say anything...) or Geneon or ADV. Not Viz.

But with my luck an announcement about OHSHC probably won't come until Anime Expo.

A Nanoha announcement would be wonderful... but I'm hoping they save that for ACen when I can be there to scream like a little loli ^^

With the MariMite buzz earlier this week however, I could see Geneon finally putitng that rumor to rest with a solid announcement. Same for Zero no Tsukaima.


The real question is when someone is going to announce OHSHC, but when FUNi is going to announce NHK... it's GONZO, they HAVE to have it!

I'm surprised Adam didn't mention Rumbling Hearts is also on iTunes.

its frequently on The Anime Network (well it used it to be anyway). I want a Manabi license, or Nodame. The dvds will probably hit faster then the subs Laughing
