Wait a minute, Viz Media will be shipping the fourth volume of the manga to North America next month? But the first volume hasn't even been released yet!

I'm excited for Higurashi, however I'm really eagerly waiting FUNi to announces licensing on the second series.

Yes, it has. I've seen 3 volumes of Switch at my local bookstores.

Hopefully sales will be decent enough for the first season's remaining discs (and eventual collection) that they want to license more. Since it's been said that Geneon has no licensing plans in the near future, we need Funimation.

I get the feeling they will. And if they don't, then I will be sad.

Given how different the appeal of the second season of Higurashi is I wouldn't be too sure about Funimation licensing that.

Concerning the trailers:
Why do they even bother streaming trailers without animated footage?

I'm still going to think they or someone will license it. Without hope, all would be lost. I lost hope for Kodomo no Jikan though. I don't think I will ever see a release for that here. Atleast not by FUNimation or ADV. Possibly by Media Blasters.

It's kinda funny when you think about it. The two voice actors that's been announced. Fukuyama Jun and Takahiro Sakurai. The two famous voices from Code Geass. And they even had their voice in kimikiss. But although, I got to admit, they got some nice voices.
