DXD Hero for me :grin:


#2125

Same


#2126

One of these days I’ll get around to picking up The Rolling Girls. I still hold it as one of Funi’s best broadcast dubs.

Some of these shows I don’t even remember TBH, so this’ll be a meh month for me.

On DxD, I dunno. I liked seasons 1-2 and own 'em, but it kinda seemed like creatively they’d painted themselves into a corner at the end of Season 2, though I don’t know where they went from there b/c Josh Grelle, much as I like other work of his, just isn’t Issei to my ears.


#2127

These are pre-order now for sures .


Absolute Duo Essentials Blu-ray


The Ancient Magus’ Bride Part 2 Blu-ray/DVD


The Rolling Girls Essentials Blu-ray

Will get ,but probably save for free shipping filler .

Mikagura School Suite Essentials Blu-ray

Maria the Virgin Witch Essentials Blu-ray

Maybe:


Golden Kamuy Season 1 Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD


#2128

Golden Kamuy link updated - has a “GWP” at the end now. I can only guess that it means “Gift with Purchase” or something similar.


#2129

Gift with Purchase: (Limited availability, while supplies last.)

  • Funimation exclusive is Asirpa gold coin
  • Right Stuf exclusive is a Sugimoto gold coin

#2130

Do we get to be immortal if we have the coin? :smiley:


#2131

Wonder if I need to call and have them fix the sku in the order . I found a 5% off code I had that was still good so threw in the original listing with my other stuff which now goes no where . They used to be pretty good at fixing stuff without asking .

Variety: Funimation Founder Gen Fukunaga Steps Down as GM

posted on 2019-02-01 13:54 EST by Karen Ressler
Fukunaga moves into chairman role, company begins search for new GM


#2133

See this is similar to what happened when EA bought out Bioware. The 2 Doctors who founded Bioware were given new positions in EA but both were gone after a year. This is too similar to not be slightly concerned about this. It all boils down who they get.

Edit: Checked the Wiki and both were gone after 5 years

Timeline: According to Wikipedia

On 11 October 2007, however, it was announced that this new partnership (organized as VG Holding Corp) had been bought by [Electronic Arts] BioWare therefore became a unit of EA, but retained its own branding.
On 18 September 2012, the next day after the official announcement of the third Dragon Age title,[19] both [Ray Muzyka] and [Greg Zeschuk], two of the remaining co-founders of BioWare, simultaneously announced they would be retiring from the gaming industry


#2134

Your Bioware comparison definitely has me concerned.

I’m still surprised that Funi sold out to Sony after buying itself back from Navarre because they’d found that not being their own master didn’t work out.


#2135

A Fandom Post user has listed several Funimation titles with reduced MSRP, mostly older BD/DVD combo packs.


#2136

And I don’t go back to work for another week, so I really can’t scrounge up any excess funds :frowning:


#2137

Except for Outlaw Star, nothing really leaps out at me on that list.

Which I’ll take as a good thing, as I’m super salty at Funi right now.


#2138

On Amazon at least a lot these come down to do I want DVD or digital . Banner or no banner . I have most I want or the essential/classic set on pre-order already . I’ve been thinking about getting Rosario + Vampire as I have the original DVD only release ,but since I do getting the essentials set would be a better way plus it’s a few cents cheaper . Looks like Amazon is also price matching some of the deals from Best Buy to so even a little cheaper .


#2139

Why would you want DVD though?

Funimation Will Not Engage Vic Mignogna on Future Productions

Company issues statement on allegations against voice actor


#2141

I think some still ,buy them . I know I heard someone flipping out one day at Target about having to buy a Blu-ray and digital to get a DVD . Frankly at this point with just one replication place left open I’m surprised they have not fully cut them out to save time if nothing else .


#2142

So what will Vic’s alias be?
