Funimation Confirms Some Geneon Licenses Have Expired

posted on by Andrew Osmond

Sophie McNutt, an online community lead for the North American anime distributor Funimation, confirmed on Tuesday that Funimation will let some of its licenses from Geneon Entertainment expire:

Also listed was When They Cry (Higurashi no Naku Koroni), whose license expiration Funimation had confirmed in June. Funimation had listed The Familiar of Zero as an expiring license in June as well.

Funimation had agreed to distribute these titles as part of its deal with Geneon in 2008. McNutt added, "As far as I know, there are no plans to re-acquire these titles."
