Navarre reported in its fiscal year-end results for 2006-2007 that its wholly-owned subsidiary Funimation increased its net sales by 47.8% over the previous year. It credits new releases such as "Fullmetal Alchemist, Robotech, Dragon Ball Z season sets, Trinity Blood, and Basilisk." The main downside was the delay of the Afro Samurai DVD to May 22, which is in the 2008 fiscal year. The annual net sales of Navarre as a whole dropped from US$171.9 million to US$168.6 million.
