Strange, Divergence Eve has been on Hulu Plus for quite some time now under Sentai's distribution.

Little Busters sub only? Strange that it would be DVD only.

Guess they're cheap and for the purposes of filling out catalogs. Divergence Eve wasn't too good and I flat out disliked Yumeria.

How do they price single episode discs these days? It's almost better if they just do a re-release and include it as an extra with about the same cost.

The article says it's bilingual. The DVD thing is probably a Japanese company scared of reverse importation.

releasing Little Busters three months after the last vol is released seems too early

Was there a Divergence Eve review in Newtype USA that basically said "This show sucks, and everyone has basketball tits?" or did I just make that up? Either way, that's how I remember that show and the sequel.

I expect it will be like Clannad/AF and a complete BD will appear somewhere down the line.

Yumeria and DE already in my collection.

*Thuds head onto desk* I already got Yumeria for Christmas Sales from RightStuf last year...

I hope Nakaimo - My Little Sister Is Among Them! is all UNCENSORED for Blu-Ray discs.

Sentai said that they are working on approval for a bluray so I expect that we will get it eventually.

Sad that they haven't announced any Bandai titles, but there's the Right Stuf panel tomorrow and then the Sunrise panel on Saturday and maybe Funimation's panel if they have more to annouce.

I'll get Little Busters when they release a Blu-ray of it.

DE and Yumeria? I honestly don't think I could be less excited even if I put some effort into it.

Well that was the gist of what Zac said here
animenewsnetwork.com/feature/2003-07-26

He also compared the sequel to a person with a hot dog stapled to their head
animenewsnetwork.com/feature/2004-01-26

Never seen the show but those boobs do look hideous

Might get Yumeria if its cheap enough since I haven't seen it since It came out and I am playing Project X Zone which has one of the characters in it.

"Sentai Filmworks announced at its panel at Anime Expo on Thursday that it has acquired the distribution rights for the television anime series Yumeria and Divergence Eve. Both series, which were previously licensed by ADV Films, will ship in November."

Translation (Sentai): "So, yeah.....We have already blown through our licensing budget for the time being, so we're just going to re-release two titles that have been available through an arm of our own company for years at this point."

Ultimately, No licensing announcements with concern to new, unlicensed series (ex. Kotoura-san) + No licensing announcements regarding former Bandai Entertainment titles = DISAPPOINTMENT Sad
