Not familiar with these, but it's nice to see OVAs being picked up. Hopefully there's more to come.[/list]

And suddenly Sentai is becoming the home for OVA's. I prefer them picking up new TV series, but anything they can license helps.

kinda hard to compete when every other anime distributor has much more resources than Sentai and grab everything remotely popular.
Sentai these days pretty much get whatever is left that doesn't interest the other companies

Hey Sentai, if you're looking for some obscure older, but not too old anime, how about Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de, or Fortune Arterial, or Dragon Crisis!, or Minami-ke, or Venus to Mamoru, or Okusama wa Maho Shojo, or Mitsudomoe, or, phew...out of breath.... Kyo no Gononi, or Macademi Wasshoi!...Come on, they all need a home....

Correction, you mean the Sony family (Aniplex, FUNimation and soon Crunchyroll).

And all the older titles are covered by Discotek. It doesn't even look like they can get a hold of any hidden gems any more like Flip Flappers or Hakumei and Mikochi.

I mean they just got Vinland Saga, which is pretty damn huge, as well as Dororo.

That was because of Amazon, if they hadn't been streamed on Prime Video, either Funimation or Netflix would have snatched them up straight away.

I second that, Mitsudomoe was great. The south park of anime, but actually funny. How that didn't get a license outside if Crunchyroll is beyond me, since it would fit the crude American comedy theme.
