I generally prefer Sentai over Funi as the last of the two dominant companies, but everything on this list is either a rerelease or not that interesting. Qwaser is the only title here that I have any interest in, still surprised someone picked it up.

I'll be looking out for Qwaser, hopefully it'll lead to Manyuu Hikenchou and Ladies Versus Butlers down the line. Hell, Sentai's already licensed Upotte, so LVB should be a shoe-in.

I'm excited about Mawaru Penguindrum. I hope they've dubbed it well.

Is that supposed to be outrage? Sentai's not released sub-only Blu-ray is well known; getting worked up over it at this point is ridiculous.

Real shame on Mashiroiro, that's a very good looking title for an eroge adaptation – KoiChoco and OreTsuba are also very pretty. The days of Soul Link, Crescent Love, and all that are long gone, these things have appreciable budgets now.

if they don't want to invest in a niche product they should simply not release it. Mashiroiro Symphony was not the greatest show, but it was at least a pretty show. I do find this offensive just as if someone took a crayola crayon and scribbled on your face. But what can I say? the anime industry is still in a transition so this is not unexpected and I do try to be understanding. I did buy maria holic alive because asking for a bluray would be unreasonable. However, in the case of a dating sim adaptation, reducing the quality is akin to sacrilege.

anyway, soro otoshimono forte is supposedly going to be re-released: on blu-ray.

I would like to say all kinds of things about this but i simply don't know. Did they plan this from the start? to re-release the show on blu-ray afterwards to increase japanese sales? or were the initial sales inadequate that they decided to listen to the customers?

My guess is that not enough people watched Mashiroiro Symphony on crunchyroll or TAN to convince the powers that be at Sentai that dubbing the show would be a good idea. if that is the case, then in order for the the show to get a blu-ray release,and thus and English dub, is for better streaming numbers, and better than average DVD sales. otherwise, it will remain on DVD
