#1996

Just the other day I took a glance at my Witch Hunter Robin DVD set (came with a CD and shotglass: real bonus features :wink:) and was wondering whatever happened to the rerelease.

I remember the show only being “meh, 'sarrite”, but it is iconic. More importantly, a progressive bluray could look good (probably no HD tho) and would take up a lot less space than this big ole DVD set.

Was this show sponsored by SEGA as well?

Witch Hunter Robin is still only on DVD? Besides saving space, is it an upgrade from the Bandai singles that I picked up?

Kinda wishing Funi would join the rest of the industry in doing SD/ED blurays…DVD’s day is done, time to retire it.

Yamada and the 7 Witches was just released in January 2018 on bluray, but now it is getting a re-release 9 months later? :face_with_raised_eyebrow: :thinking:

I’m glad I didn’t yet pick it up as this new Essentials version is on preorder for less than half the cost of the original. It’s almost too bad, as it was a fun show and a contender for Funimation’s Dub of the Year IMO.

Tales of the Abyss is still sub-only? Sad.

Angel Links? Why wasn’t it bundled with Outlaw Star, and why isn’t it on blu-ray? Is this a case of Funi going low effort on a release because they don’t want to release it but contractually they must?

Black Clover? Maybe, most enjoyable shounen I’ve seen in ages, but the Funi dub is so mehdiocre. So far I’ve found myself unintentionally boycotting Funi shows that I liked subbed but received sub-par dubs, so I dunno about this pickup.

I’m tempted by Garo VANISHING LINE as it was one of the few recent Funi titles (and their first GARO) where IMO the dub > sub, but I’ve been burned by Funi’s “Part 1” releases on titles like this before :frowning:

Imouto is all you Need was something that I was entertained by far more than expected so I might pick that one up. From what I sampled, the Broadcast Dub on that one seemed better than average too.
