Heard about this a day or so ago...looking forward to it. I just hope I'm not disappointed. There's 10 chances for them announce something I want to be brought over here. I am curious as to what exactly they'll be though. Hoping some of them will be Dennou Coil, Kure-Nai, Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora (doubt it...), and/or Strike Witches. I hate waiting...

Oh man, Hantsuki would just be super awesome, but I also doubt it.

I'm sure Soul Eater will be the big one, along with Reborn.

Dennou Coil I'm expecting, Slayers Revolution as well, and prolly the second season of Shana or Zero (or maybe both!).

I'd love to see Kaiba licensed, but I don't think FUNi would take a chance with it. Seems more like a Geneon title, but sadly, they're not around anymore to pick up the seinen titles.

I'm expecting a lot too, but I feel as if they're going to go after shit titles for some reason. I guess we'll see.

Please, PLEASE GET MEINE LIEBE!

That and Slayers Revolution, Monster, Ah! My Goddess: Fighting Wings, Ocean Waves (Why should Disney have a near-monopoly on all things Studio Ghibli?), and Strike Witches.

While we're at it, there's still a bunch of Geneon titles that haven't been rescued that FUNi still needs to pick up before someone else gets them.

Clues abound on the Funimation website. If you don't want to go on a scavanger hunt to find them all, I gathered all the clues & my conclusions here:

spoiler[Vandread, Soul Eater, & Evangelion] look to be sure things.

Ocean Waves will be, I believe, released in Germany with English subs, so you could import it if you want to.
Release date is not set, though, but it shouldn't be more than 3-4 months now.

But...but...I don't want to pay more for my anime than I would here. I want to get it here in the States!

Lousy exchange rates and tarriffs...

Since the DVD price is already set at ~40$, the overall price could easily be a little more than 50$. Expensive, but better than nothing, right? Smile
Anyhow, I'm sure Funi has rescued some Geneon titles, and while I would be happy to see Texhnolyze there, I doubt it. I would love to see Spice and Wolf licensed as well.

spoiler[I refuse to acccept any English VA other than Spike Spencer as Shinji Sad]

C'mon, School Days. I know everybody but me hated it, and it wouldn't sell, but I really really want it to come out over here. Kaiba would be nice too.

The flipin' hell? spoiler[Gad Guard] is a) Not how you spell "My Wife is a mermaid" or "Soul Eater" and b) Not a new show.

Also, dood, that sounds more like spoiler[Dennou Coil] anyway.

I would like the number of Geneon Re-aqusitions to be kept to a low in light of the C&Ding that was previosly done a few months back.

It's not like Funi are against puting other VA than thier normal cast in shows anyway, hence the awesome of Hoehimen DinoBot Jesus

You learn to cope with it eventually. The fact that a product you're interested in exists somewhere in the world is more than can be said for some of the things I'm interested in.

Sorry, I must try to show more cheer this time of year.
