Hmm.

SND gets a complete series BD-only release. Curious if I should eventually pick up a copy to get a Funi Digital copy of S1 :thinking:

Brave Witches gets an Essentials (It is not BTW) release. I could have saved about $10 off the combo pack from RS earlier this year…

Neptunia gets an Essentials release too. Wasn’t it in the S.A.V.E. category? Checking, yes it is. (Get the SAVE version now. It’s only $16 on RS during the b-day sale. )

Here’s to you, Men of Culture :+1:

I should have it on preorder, but I’ve been remiss. I’ll have to get on it.

I’m still intrigued by Hundred, it took the Infinite Stratos setup and made some novel changes to it.

I do wish that Funi would at least put one commentary on every release. Even if I never listen to it (but I go through most of 'em), it makes me feel like I’m getting more for my money, which makes me more likely to plunk down my cold hard cash for the blu-rays.

Dunno if there’s anything here for me :thinking:

I had fun with BBB:B, but just didn’t get into the much different first season. Similar story with FMP, I had some fun with the new season but don’t really need to see the first 2 agaain.

Was following Radiant for the theme song and the novelty, but what sure seemed like real world politics injected into it got me to backburner it so far that I might not come back to it.

MMO Junkie was a solid series that I liked, sad to see it is on life support “Essentials”, but I might still pick it up for fun, the ole “vote with my dollar” to support the shows that fell through the cracks.

This still concerns me about Is This A Zombie

New release:

Original S1 release:

I was thinking they pulled the listing earlier to secure the OVA’s that were only on the DVD’s from the first season for Blu-Ray ,but looks like they failed if that was the case .

I’ve been holding off buying to many Funimation essentials or regular releases to the Rightstuf and Funi Holiday sales start . I have a feeling given previous years either they will be cheap or they will clearance the original releases .

Oh! Aside from ITAZ if it has the S1 OVAs on BD, nothing doing for Funimation for December.
