The panel also revealed that Funimation will be announcing some new acquisitions before the end of the year. The "FUNimation's 2010 Roll-out Riot" will be coming soon, possibly as early as next week


Some how I get the feeling the big announcement here was the announcement of future announcements? Laughing

-not that any FMA news isn't "big".

I wonder if they will have new licenses or will just be assigning street dates for some of their prelicensed properties....

I better get on my saving the pennies how, I'm torn between partial box sets and full ones for FMA: B, I guess it all depends on if they have a sale when the first two parts come out.

I wish they would do what Bandai did for Gurren Lagann and release a sub-only set first for Brotherhood sooner. I want to get the show in my collection as soon as possible, and couldn't care less about a dub.

I'm still wondering if FMA: BH will be shown on Cartoonnetworks' Adult Swim.

Okay, so now depending on the release date, FMA is going to the top of the purchasing list at A-Cen next year.

I have a feeling about this as well, which would be cool if this does happen.

I'm personally holding out for an announcement of xxxHolic: Kei and the Tsubasa/xxxHolic OVAs/OADs, but I'm not holding my breath.

I look forward to watching Full Metal Alchemist in 2010, but other than that, nothing too exciting about this news.

Though I wouldn't mind seeing Funimation license Toradora. Toradora is one of the very, very few shows I would ever consider a masterpiece. Funimation and Viz Media are the only companies these days that actually think about the English audio fans as well.

None the less, geat job Funimation. I am really enjoying the uncut, unedited One Piece and Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z. Worth every penny.

From a dub standpoint, the choices for the casting of Strike Witches is rather intriguing. It's been awhile since I heard Kira-Vincent Davis ever since ADV went kaput, and I'm surprised Stephenie Sheh is in this series. It's definitely one of the most unpredictable casting I've seen .

I was just thinking last night that FMA:B was due to have a street date announced soon, especially since Funi already has all the subtitles done. Now to get the parts or hold out for boxsets....

If they do, I hope they give the fans a dub worth listening to.

Anyone else excited for the blood/gore/flesh fest that is Mnemosyne?

I'd settle for a street date for Slayers Revolution.

YES to the Darker Than Black boxset. But seriously, where the hell is Oh Edo Rocket?? What the heck!

I'm sure it will. Judging by how often they give the original, and even giving reruns of it a better time slot than new anime, I'm sure Adult Swim wouldn't pass up the chance for more FMA.

Yes, absolutely! However, I'm not real wild about having to wait 3 months for Strike Witches, but what can i do?.....
