201... 201... 2011 for Strike Witches 2???

Well, I guess I've no choice but to wait.

At first, I have to admit I was about to rant all over the place. Luckily, the Chinese food I just ate has slowed the blood to my brain and I realized the reason for the late release is all those other titles FUNi has to dub first. You know, like Shana 2.
Very Happy

Sentai's getting spanked. The last time I've seen a whipping like this required 2 major credit cards, a dark room, and the shades drawn.

It could be worse. They could be Bandai.

I'm kinda praying that FUNImation stops licensing everything. It's about quality, not quantity man. None of these shows are really quality.


Nono, it's about money above all else. idk about Strike Witches, but I can pretty much guarantee you Hetalia will make good money for them.

Of course more Hetalia and SW2, but Okami-san? I'm really glad to see it get picked up, as it's been high on my "To Watch" list for this summer. Hopefully they'll start streaming it soon...

Sentai isn't getting "spanked". They're just not licensing everything under the moon. I like them a lot better because when they announce something, it's going to be out within a month or three, you know when I'm actually interested in a show and other anime hasn't caught my eye? My interest with Chaos;Head went from extreme, to extemely minimal. Not every anime needs to be dubbed, you know?

Only if we're talking in terms of fanservice, though I imagine with Strike Witches 2 and Ryoko's interesting "uniform" in Ookami-san, it'd probably be a push.

Maybe so, but with all this other news, I wonder how long it'll take before people forget what SF licensed. That's all I'm saying. The spanking isn't necessarily a bad thing. Some actually like it.

I didn't say that it had to be, did I?

Time will tell. You may just be right.

The statement I made about anime being dubbed wasn't directed at you. I meant in general.

It's really incredibly depressing Funimation immediately scoops up crap like this for both streaming and DVD release while planting themselves firmly on the fence with DVD releases for all those much more interesting noitamina shows they're streaming.

I have to say that you need to level up your skill of sarcasm. Cause nobody was complaining about Vic before your comment showed up.

Thats just your opinion, which I dont agree with.

HOTD is a pretty cool show but IMO:
Strike Witches 2, Eva 2.0, Summer Wars, DTB2, Railgun/Index, Black Lagoon, tons of Geneon rescues > Highschool of the Dead
