Im pretty uneducated with Japanese groups so I don't really know who FLOW is but since the Tales series is my favorite series does anyone know if this particular group's agents or license company is difficult to work with/protective of their rights?

It seems like many of the recent Tales games intro OP's are removed for the western releases and replaced with just an instrumental track. Tales of Zestiria was sadly the latest victim.

I know that when Naruto aired in the USA, they actually aired it with the opening by Flow. I think Code Geass also aired with its opening by Flow too. Flow has also done multiple concert runs around North America, so I believe there is a good chance that Bandai Namco may be able to get the rights for the opening.

Well, it won't matter who does the themesong since all we'll get in North America is the instrumental version.

The US releases of both Tales of Xilla games(the most recent ones before ToZ) had the Japanese OPs. From what I've heard the change to Zesteria's intro was the result of licensing issues. So getting the unedited intro for the US release of ToB is certainly not out of the question.

Not to mention Tales of Graces and Vesperia got the English version of their openings respectively and Tales of Symphonia Chronicles finally got the original Japanese openings from the original games when it was released for ps3 too.
