I think people would enjoy Senki Zesshou Symphogear:[/quote]

The problem with that though, is that is a FUNimation streaming license, which you can still watch on their site.

I truthfully wouldn’t know about things like that. Thanks for the heads up.

One place to find info like that is to search for it on the http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=13659.
Down at the bottom of the page, under “English companies”, they show who has licensed the series.

52 bucks for Strike Witches?! You can get a 2 week free trial of Funimation’s video subscription service and see it all for free. The subscription itself is also fairly inexpensive; if you were to buy 2 releases at 52 bucks, you would have already spent more than it would cost you to stream all of Funimation’s shows for a whole year. Unless you’re unable to subscribe to their service, have poor internet service, or are a die-hard fan of the series I can’t see a reason to buy it. The first season is also on Netflix streaming.

Anyhow, I’m hoping that Sentai will acquire Space Brothers (Uchuu Kyoudai). A more adult scifi show to go along with (or compensate for) Bodacious Space Pirates. Don’t let all the more mature sci-fi shows go to Funimation.


#45

All the mature shows to Funimation? The company that is quickly becoming known by R1 fans as the king of ecchi? LOL


#46

All the mature science-fiction shows. With the notable exception of Bandai’s Planetes, Funimation seems to have almost all such shows that are still in print.

People say that Funimation is the king of ecchi, but I’m not sure that they’ve kicked Sentai off the the throne of perversion as Sentai not only has massive ecchi shows in its own right like High School of the Dead but it also inherits ADV’s legacy for more infamous shows like Najica Blitz Tactics. Not to mention the actual hentai titles that ADV dubbed back in the day.

Well, most if not all of those ADV shows are out of print and the licenses have expired. Sentai has been picking up a lot of dramas and mature series like Croisee, Shigofumi, and others, while Funimation has picked up things like Cat Planet Cuties, Heaven’s Lost Property, and others. Both companies have their share of fan service and dramas. Most of Sentai’s are newer shows, while most of Funi’s are older properties that they have “rescued”. To say one company has all the good dramas, or all the “mature” series is not only false but simplistic. “Good” is entirely subjective anyway. I love Noir and consider it an excellent drama, but a lot of people really hate it. Besides the only “mature” scifi series I can think of that Funi has, is Last Exile.


#48

So then how come Funimation is known as the “king of ecchi” then?

Is it? Well then it’s a good thing no one is saying that. I’m not sure who is talking about good dramas, maybe I missed it earlier in the thread? Anyhow, to clear up any confusion that may be here, I’m talking about mature science fiction shows, shows with more thought-provoking themes and a tendency towards “hard” science fiction. Funimation’s rescued Moonlight Mile is an example of such a show.

I never made the claim about Funi. It’s just something I’ve read on other forums. They’ve only been releasing one or two new series every month for a while now and they’ve almost entirely consisted of things like Strike Witches, HLP, and Cat Planet Cuties.

As for Moonlight Mile, it was a sales flop. Funi allowed it to fall out of print and the license has likely expired or reverted. Even if they have it, what good does it do if they don’t use it?

Just what are you trying to accomplish here? You’re engaging in logical fallacies, trying to argue points that no one contests (and not the points that have been made), and are dangerously close contradicting yourself.

Are you trying to be Graham Aker? :wink:

I have no idea what you’re even asking. You said Funi had all the “mature sci-fi” series. I disputed that, because I didn’t see how it was true. Then you could only list one that is now out of print and didn’t even have the second season picked up. That’s gotta be pretty bad when Funimation gives almost everything at least four or five re-releases. Though they have to, or else they would hardly have any material to distribute each month. I also pointed out that Funi is just as bad as Sentai at picking up silly, fan-service shows (as is just about everyone in R1 really), and that some fans are basically accusing them of going overboard on fan service.

I never said I agreed with the title that some fans have given to Funi. But you still haven’t provided any proof that Funi has all the “mature sci-fi series.”


#52

yeah, yeah, yeah…mature shows, echhi shows…futanari shows…they’re all good.

now back to the show…

I suggest for TAN/Sentai…

**Minami-Ke/Minami-ke Okawari/Minami-ke Okaeri **

Nogizaka Haruka No Himitsu/Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 2: Purezza

P.S. Wouldn’t **Mardock Scramble **and Broken Blade be considered “mature” shows. They are dealing with serious subject matters. Funi doesn’t have those.


#53

Good point. Time to get back on topic. I have some suggestions:

[size=6]Dusk Maiden of Amnesia[/size]

I know CR has the simulcast, but I’m still hopeful that Sentai can nab it, or already has, and that TAN can at least delay-cast it. It’s sort of sad to see that TAN won’t appear to have any exclusive simulcasts this season, but hopefully they will announce something soon.

Others:
Nana: Seven of Seven
Fancy Lala
Dragon Drive
Saikano

It appears most of these are out of print and the licenses have lapsed, or will do shortly. Some good shows that shouldn’t be too expensive to pick up, and I think they would do fairly well streaming and on VOD. :slight_smile:

I’m still hoping for **Eureka 7 AO **and ‘sparkle, sparkle’ Hyoka

I don’t know about Eureka 7 AO, but I’m thinking, if we actually do get an exclusive, it’ll be Hyouka.

It’s just a waiting game currently, as we’re not entirely sure how many of the ones on CR, Sentai picked up.

Sentai has had some surprising pick ups the last couple seasons, so who knows. I would love to see both as well, even though I’m not a Eureka 7 fan. It would certainly bring some views and likely subscribers to the site and it would be good to see Sentai pick up another major series. Not to mention, they would be most likely to get the entire original dub cast back.


#57

they won’t need to, since it’s and all new cast of characters, might be a cameo or two from the original, if that.

Say it with me:
**Hilary Haag for the win!!! **:silly:

I’m hoping for Hyouka since it’s a KyoAni, but seeing as how it is a KyoAni, chances are it’d be a fairly expensive pick up, and depending on how many David ment when he implied “a ton of stuff that’s being simulcast” there might be less of a chance for Hyouka.

You haven’t provided any proof that they do not, and since you took it upon yourself to start an argument with me, as Chris Ayres is wont to say, “the onus is on you”. Note that I said “shows”, and while that isn’t significantly different than “series”, it does exclude movies like Mardock Scramble. Broken Blade is much more of a fantasy than a science fiction show.

In talking about the release history of Moonlight Mile you’re still creating a straw man (logical fallacy) as I never made any claims about mature science-fiction selling well. That’s a topic you invented for some nefarious purpose; I merely said that Funimation had almost all of such shows, something you haven’t successfully refuted.

I realize that it is quoted above, but I’m going to relist it here because it is necessary to show how absurd your statement is:

You never disputed this, nor technically did you ever dispute much of anything with me. All you did was invent arguments not even tangentially related to what you have made mine and then tried to shoot them down. An example being where you started rambling about dramas, something that I didn’t mention.

[quote]

Perhaps not, but you’ve gone out of your way to justify that “title” in no fewer than 2 posts. Let’s stop pointlessly beating around the bush here: Do you agree with this “title” given to Funimation?

I hate to put on airs of self-importance, but I can’t help but get the feeling that you’re trying to “shoot me down” here out of some yet-unrevealed spite. You did start a poorly constructed argument with me for no given reason, after all. In Gundam 00, which I’m going to assume that you haven’t seen, Graham Aker goes insane and justifies his own irrational crusade against the organization known as Celestial Being.

I’m not sure why you’re trying to persecute a fellow Sentai fan (there are so few of us, getting back to the recent Sentai panel sales figures) but if you really want to keep it up I think I can oblige, though if these past few posts are the pinnacle of your argumentative technique I think it’d be best if you just “threw in the towel” right now :wink:

Speaking of getting back on topic, what about Space Brothers? If Crunchyroll simulcasts a show then the odds of said show being licensed by Sentai increase. It’s a nice foil to Sentai’s existing Bodacious Space Pirates. I’d be one of the 3,000 buying it if they were to license it.
