Err… WHAT? How did this happen?


#20

This is really weird, especially since no one has actually mentioned home video rights yet. It should be interesting.


#21

Kind of like the shows that ran on Daisuki, often they would be on one, two or three other services as well. What’s interesting is that a dub is being done, which given the material will be a “challenge”, so if the home video rights aren’t with either Funimation or Sentai then whoever has them is going to have to pay for the dub.

You would think so anyway.
