Although this is a pretty old anime by the standards of many, I think this could be a easy pick up for Sentai. 12 episodes plus one film about samurai and ninjas would fit well

I could see Sentai maybe doing Fuuma no Kojirou, but while I do enjoy it I easily put Kurumada’s other anime adataptions over it. I’d rather Sentai try out a more recent anime based on a Kurumada manga like Ring ni Kakero 1, maybe have them license rescue B’t X from Illumitoon, or even continue Saint Seiya from where ADV had to leave off at before they go after Fuuma no Kojirou.

Not that it’s a bad title, though; I did enjoy the first OVA series/Yasha-hen. I just personally put licensing Ring ni Kakero 1, a B’t X license rescue, and the return of Saint Seiya over Kojirou any day. Also, this is just The Anime Network; if you want to get this title brought up to Sentai themselves then I’d say send them an e-mail via their wbesite.

Maybe they could work a package deal with both shows. Ring ni Kakero isn’t too long anyway.

The weird thing is that I have absolutely no idea who actually made Fuuma no Kojrou. I’ve seen Toei, J.C. Staff, and Animate-Film all listed as being the studio behind the OVAs, and I really can’t tell who might own it nowadays. If Toei did in fact make it, then a package deal with Ring ni Kakero 1 could be possible (add Saint Seiya to them and you could say that they went “Krazy for Kurumada”… Yeah, bad joke), but if they didn’t make it then there’s a much smaller chance of that happening.

That said, I am still all for getting Kojirou one day. Apparently a fansub of it was circulated back during the stone age of 90s tape-trading, so there’s probably a fair chance that David Williams, Matt Greenfield, and John Ledford are at least familiar with the title. And if Sentai truly is going to continue licensing old-school anime, ala Ghost Sweeper Mikami, like what David Williams said at AX a week or so ago then there’s definitely a chance at it.

I guess it's time to send Sentai an e-mail regarding certain old-school anime I'd love to see brought over.

Yeah, if you go to Sentai Filmworks’ website there is a contact form you can fill out. Alternatively, on that same page there is an actual e-mail you could send a message to them through. Granted, I have never gotten a reply from Sentai, but at the same time when I would send e-mails to ADV I only got a (fairly generic)_response about two times, so I feel that it still never hurts to send something.

If they aren’t going to respond I won’t waste time writing one. I’m sure somebody over there reads this forum.

Best bet is the facebook page. I know someone reads that.

They don’t really respond a lot but they do indeed look at it.
