I wonder how many of these titles will actually make it out. A number of them to date have only been licensed for streaming on Crunchyroll and there doesn't appear at this stage to be any R1 DVD licence for them. Given that in the past Madman has said it will not release sub-only anime, the release of some of these titles would be hinging on a future announcement from a US company which dubs its shows (most likely Funimation).

I'd really like to see them release GOSICK. It didn't get licensed for streaming here in Australia and it looks like a top-notch series.[/i]

I wouldn't be too shocked if Madman sticks a subtitle only release or two out one day. Siren has been testing this format for months, and there really is no better time for them to give it a shot.

I doubt Madman would license a title purely for online streaming. Unless they plan on announcing a possible subscription based online streaming service of their own, purchasing a title just to stream it for free sounds too good to be true.

That said, they may very well know something we don't. Like some possible upcoming licence announcements at Anime Expo, for instance.

I highly doubt that Madman will release a subtitle only release, they know what works and that content will be coming.
