I'd say 50/50 shot with something with a name, then again ADV got burned on Final Fantasy Unlimited, and I don't know how Zone of the Enders did for them.

Did not see this coming, thought for sure this would go Bandai or Funimation.

Its got a really good director, and the original story is one of the best out there. It looks to be high budget with great animation as well, so theres little chance it won't end up being a really good adaption. All they've gotta do is follow the story and it should be an easy 8.4-8.5 rating kinda show.

Well yeah, someone would grab it. I expected Funimation though since they'd easily be able to get together the original cast for the dub. It'll be tough to sell this dubbed using different actors, and with Sentai being Texas based, the original cast is unlikely.

The one of the only anime I can think of that it doesn't sound right in Japanese, unless they get different dub-actors.

Didn't expect Sentai to license it, but nice acquisition regardless.

And to all of you who're concerned whether Sentai's going to use their own voice actors or not, keep in mind that they're bringing back the cast for the Rozen Maiden OVA that has been previously unlicensed stateside, so there's hope.

Well I knew it had to get licensed sooner or later, because it is fairly popular over here. But man, these shows just keep getting licensed faster and faster.

I really would like to watch this dubbed (never thought I'd say that). Since the Japanese version is having all of their same voice actors, I'm really hoping that Sentai will follow the trend. I'm gonna put my faith in Sentai to follow through, even if it's hoping for a lost cause. But meh.

Wow even the licensing companies know that this Fall is going to be a top tier season for anime. For some reason, that makes me happy.
