Guess the first news of the day is Funimation rescues Girls Bravo.
http://www.mania.com/girls-bravo-rescued-funimation_article_124402.html

It’s got a great dub and it’s as kinky as you can get without going into Hentai.
So good pickup.

Unless FUNi announces a license for SW2, I really can’t think of anything off the top of my head that would really matter to me announcement wise.

Well, maybe Madhouse saying they’re making more Black Lagoon, but that’s not really likely considering where the manga is. The next story arc isn’t finished yet.

I’m thinking they may have more Geneon rescues up their sleeves ,but can’t think of much that’s left that’s worth more then TV and streaming filler. Really other then some stuff Aniplex has not mentioned yet I’m not seeing a whole lot of newer stuff I care to see brought over. Maybe Funimation will announce a classics line with older series. I doubt it ,but I can hope. :wink:

From what I’ve heard on Bakemonogatari, people shouldn’t be holding their breath. That one will likely be a while. :stuck_out_tongue:

Also, I’m curious to see who has Angel Beats. I’m hoping it’s either Sentai or Bandai, but it’s almost impossible to guess licenses these days.

Also, good to see Bang Zoom dubbing Durarara. They’ve always been my second favorite dubbing studio, so it will be nice to hear more from them.

Madhouse said Anchor Bay will distribute Redline in the US! I’m pretty excited! Cannot wait to see it.


#9

Yeah, Anchor Bay announced that about two weeks ago. It was announced a few days before Starz put them on the auction block.

Shows how much I pay attention to news :stuck_out_tongue:

That should be it.


#17

2 series I’ve never heard of. 2 I don’t care about. 2 movies I might pick up. Well, it’s better than their last several announcements. I sort of figured they would announce Summer Wars at Otakon, especially since the cat was already out of the bag.


#18

EVA 2.22 they said they don’t know about the dub in who they will bring back. I’ll say TG better be in this or war will be called.
