I am so fantastically pleased about this!
Thank you to Nozomi Entertainment & RightStuf.

The idea they're selling this in boxed sets is brilliant.

I usually have no interest in shoujo-ai, but it's gotten such good reviews from fans and I really enjoy supporting TRSI, that I will probably get it. Excellent that they're going the boxset route.

I know this will make a lot of fans really happy. They've been waiting a long time for this.

There are two anime titles I've heard much about, and would love to watch, but never thought they'd ever be licensed. This was one of them.
Very Happy

Love the series, but personally I don't see how this will sell well in the US.

Probably quite well. A Funimation rep. said that Shuffle had sold very well so far, and they're going to possibly give it the box treatment because of that, and seeing as that has done well, I don't see why Maria-sama won't.

All these kind of series seem to do well enough.

Marimite? Really??? Anime smile I never expected this show to come the US. Oh, I'm so excited!

I doubt it will sell well aside from people who are already fans of the show, but I think RightStuf realizes that and will do well with the release.

That's why there not dubbing it.


That said I am mildly interested in this series, but it might be a while if I ever do get around to watching it.

Well, some people were suggesting/hoping it would be this, so at least some people guessed right.

I haven't seen it, but I'll probably Netflix it when it comes out to see whether I want to buy it. It's coming out in a box to start with, so it's not like they'll lose much by me renting it first.

The lack of dub means lack of sale for me but I'm happy for everyone else.

Care to explain? I have some interest in this series but I know little about it save that it was animated by Studio Deen and Mamiko Noto worked on it.
