Yay! I personally don't buy anything from them but it's certainly a relief to hear a US anime company doing well

Laughing

It is rather nice to hear that a company is expanding rather than pulling back, isn't it.

Same here, I'm a Sub only fan, and it's great not to be paying $10+ Extra for a Dub I never even watch, plus I get more Episodes on a DVD too as there's more space!

At any rate, they're not downsizing. I think that brings about some good news of relief with all of the other news we've been hearing about certain other companies.

Media Blasters has a pretty diverse list of foreign/cult offerings (obligatory fist pump for Shaw Brothers films) outside of anime that bring in a lot of niche buyers, so their eggs are spread into a couple of different baskets so-to-speak. Though their stuff might not be for everybody, Media Blasters has always struck me for knowing the right titles to fit their audience.

Glad to see that at least one company is expanding these days. That's at least one good sign of the state of US anime industry.

Hm... a new location to increase distro. Maybe they could offer their services to Geneon, for a fee, so those series that were still worked on could actually be released. *futile wishing*

I too am glad to hear of an anime company expanding instead of downsizing.

Now here's hoping they'll finish GaoGaiGar and bring over Kamen Rider: The Next since they have The First.

With Phoenix and the upcoming Kujubiki Unbalance, both included dubs and were offered at the same price as their subonly discs with similar episode counts, so it's a winning situation all around for fandom, really. MB are really pushing things forward [without going overboard]
