Really looking forward to seeing some animated footage soon but it's nice to see more news about this again. Very Happy

Not available for the UK to watch... >_>
I'll find a way when I'm less sleepy but still disappointed, it isn't like these guys or FUNimation are sharing the actual product outside of the selected region or using a licensed track with legal limitations.

How can a promotional video be region blocked?

I live in Canada and it says it's blocked here too. Sure. Why promote your product when you can ignore potential markets? Rolling Eyes

I have to say, I'm really loving this ad. Not only is it a clever way to introduce a large cast, it's super catchy! I can't seem to stop watching it.

spoiler[No, seriously, I can't stop. Help!]

A shame to hear it's region-blocked for some people, though. Region-blocking on simulcasts is annoying enough, region-blocking on advertisement is just silly.

I live in Norway, and the video is blocked for me.

Wonder if they will bring the anime over. Hopefully, the subject matter won't cause it any problems. Though, Aria the Scarlet Ammo made it over here, so it will probably too.

Here, here. I'd be grateful if someone posted a link to a promo video that isn't region blocked.

This appears to be the same video: http://a.pomf.se/fftezd.mp4

Enjoy, the premise for the promotion and the voice cast are pretty good.

I think it has pretty good odds, not everything that blows up in Japan does well here but the subject matter didn't stop Viz from bringing the manga and anime rights seem to be more up for grabs with companies willing to take any show to fill up their catalog even ones based on VNs, manga or light novels which aren't localised or even fan translated.

An anime based on a hit with a two year run of manga fans and a general base building up because Viz are actually bringing over a new Shonen Jump manga when some of their other series are coming to a close.

You can bet someone will pick it up in North America or mainland Europe. Hope the UK isn't far behind.

Yuuumaaa <3333

very satisfied with everyone's voices, although nagisa still is way too feminine, and terasaka's could've been a bit more softer to sound more like a junior highschool student

my preferences, feel free to say yours

That actually makes sense, since even some of his classmates weren't sure of his gender until they got a swimming pool.
