Oh my god! YEAH!
I was just hoping for Saiunkoku & Shonen Onmyoji (figured Hellsing was a given), but Law of Ueki also? It's a weird little title I didn't think anyone was watching, but it has some good VA's.

I was kinda hoping Kyo Kara Maoh more for the chance of Season 3 because Season 2 was very much in wind-down mode at the point Geneon stopped. It will be nice to fill that 2nd book, but the eps on that last dvd we got seemed very much rehash of prior events.

FUNimation, for the love of God, please please keep the current New Generation Pictures cast for the Hellsing dub!

Oh, and please keep distributing the steel cases too! Smile

I know what you mean, I never thought I'd hear that Rozen Maiden was saved, let alone Saiunkoku or really any of them expect the big ones.

Everyone, lets make sure Funimation doesn't regret this action! Let's buy like insane druken sailors! Cool

ABOUT ****ING TIME!!!

I'm excited most for Hellsing Ultimate & Paradise Kiss. There seems to be a glimmer of hope now for the American anime industry.

And now American fans can continue seeing Hellsing Ultimate after the abrupt halt of its distribution. Not to mention that if Funi can have their way, they can even have proper translations for English subtitles for the Japanese audio of Geneon titles instead of the liberties that the company had a knack for doing in the past.

Funimation's continue to impress me more and more with their recent news releases. At this rate, I could forgive them for hyping the daylights out of DBZ.

FINALLY!

Of course I already tracked Paradise Kiss, Ergo Proxy and the first half of Black Lagoon but I'm glad someone's FINALLY doing something.

THANK YOU FUNIMATION!
