This is... unexpected. Definitely welcome news though. I loved watching the show back when it was airing and I've heard some good things about the dub

Can't wait to see what else Siren have got planned.

This is weird. AnimeLab is Madman's screening site.

- Is AnimeLab independent of Madman?

- Is Madman allowing competition to use their streaming service?

- Is this a sign that Siren Visual and Madman are going to merge or enter into some other arrangement?

Interesting.

Yeah, I thought that Animelab=Madman. Will be interesting to see if there is more to this or if it is just that the streaming service is open to others.

Still, Maou-sama!!!! Will be giving this show another watch through Animelab to see if I want to buy it from Siren. Laughing

AnimeLab is Madman's service but I believe it's a conscious decision to not have the Madman plastered all over the website. As to the reasoning behind the decision, well, that's for Madman to speak about.

Obviously we have an answer to that question, this is excellent news considering Siren Visual's catalog. Here's hoping that Denno Coil will be one of the titles on AnimeLab in the future.

And I'm pretty sure that's a "no" to Siren and Madman merging at this stage, it's just utilising a platform to push content out there. Siren Visual is a small and dedicated operation specialising in niche content, so it's not surprising to see them striking a deal to get on AnimeLab. The less work they have to do building a delivery platform means the more time they have to do what they do best (in theory).

I know what you mean, I'm rather picky as to what I put on my collection shelf. I still need to grab Tiger and Bunny >.>

Agreed. I'd love to see more of their stuff there.

Fingers crossed the Siren will get some more stuff on there. They've got some series I'm interested in, but I always hesitate when it comes to blind buys.
