Damn, a lot of good titles licensed there.

Ushio & Tora and School-Live in particular are series I plan to pick in the future.

No mention of Sentai rescuing the Higurashi anime or acquiring Legend of Galactic Heroes, or will that be for another article?

Woot! Ushio & Tora, School-Live!, Aoharu hypeeee! I just would've preferred Ushio & Tora to have gotten picked up by Funimation so that we could get a broadcast dub.

I was expecting Sentai to pick Ushio & Tora up. Am gussing Funi didn't want to take a risk with a show that's going be 39 episodes.

I'm interested in Aoharu and School-Live!, so this is good.

The only thing remaining for the season that I want to see (so far) is Umaru-chan and I thought it might be one of their pickups. The season hasn't really started yet, though, so I'd imagine they've got quite a few more things to announce.

Those are some really solid titles. School-Live and Wakaba Girl are the ones I'm most interested in.

Ushio & Tora needs to get a dub, because now that Sentai is working with Toonami, the show would be PERFECT for the block. In fact, now I'll be disappointed if it doesn't happen.

I was actually hoping Aniplex would pick up the zombie one, mainly because I wanted the voice actresses from K-on and Squid Girl for the English release.

I pretty much called Gate being released by Sentai though. Hope that one does well enough to get an English release.

Monica Rial for the voice of Rory. Calling it now.

Oh, almost forgot. YES! Life returns to Higurashi. The original yandere anime.

My thoughts exactly. I'm glad it was Sentai who licensed the series. There luckily seemed to be no indication that Aniplex is involved so I was hopeful, and I'm glad my hunch was right. Other than that School Live sounds like it'll be worth checking out.

They're the ones who got School-Live!? Ok but I would have liked to have heard Alexis Tipton in it somewhere. And that's about it; Another 4 girl slice of life comedy, something that looks suspiciously like Those Who Hunt Elves: Extreme!, a reboot of a manga whose OVA I previously didn't care for, Tu-Luv-Ru!, a franchise that I should love but it just doesn't do anything for me and that last one, whose very premise takes the word "overblown" and does terrible, cruel things to it.
