I kind of see Sentai picking this up in the Winter season, just because it seems like something they’d get.
Or maybe, CrunchyRoll will pick it up (or both will).

In either case, I’m actually kind of interested in it.

Justin mentioned this in the most recent http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anncast/2011-12-09, when he was talking about the stuff for this season’s Spotlight, but he brought it up again in the Spotlight thread, so I figured I’d share, since I found it rather humorous.

For some of the shows they just send me the colored design sheets, and for one of them (I just checked, it was High School DxD) those included up-close diagrams of how each female characters nipples looked both erect and relaxed. I knew it’d be a pervy show…

I will not be including them. Sorry guys, ANN is a (moderately) family-friendly site. :p[/quote]

Well, I would say two way battle. I can’t see MB putting up much of a fight if Sentai or Funi want it. But I want to check this one out as well, so I’m hoping for Sentai.

I’m thinking more Funimation if anyone though Media Blasters has surprised me at times. Though considering that it starts tomorrow I’m not sure anyone got it. It may be one of those Japan wants to much for series.

The first airing (the 6th & again on the 10th) is on AT-X, which is probably an uncensored version.
It doesn’t start airing on other networks until the 11th.

Oh they got the boobs show.

THAT ISN’T AQUARION!!! You would think a sequel to a successful series would be an easy guess…

Funico shows seem to be doing worse that Aniplex’s shows on Nico Nico if going by comment count alone, I mean Last Exile has at most 5 two days after airing whereas Blood-C and Uta-Pri had upwards of 1000 that day.

Author Ichiei Ishibumi personally writes episode in May 2013 BD bundle

The limited edition of Ichiei Ishibumi’s 15th High School DxD light novel volume will bundle a Blu-ray Disc with anime episode #14 when it ships next May. Ishibumi himself is writing the unaired episode, and the limited-edition set will include an exclusive variant cover.

The insert that is making the announcement is included with the 13th light novel volume, which will ship on September 20. That light novel volume is itself bundling episode #13 on a Blu-ray Disc. Ishibumi also wrote that episode. The same Blu-ray Disc containing episode #13 is also revealing that a second television anime season has been green-lit.

The first 12-episode television season premiered in Japan on January 6, and Funimation licensed the anime for North America. Funimation previously simulcast the series, and also plans to release it on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
