interesting. Supposely Familiar of Zero isnt popular in the US that the previous license holder funimation(they acquired from the ceased studio of geneon) didnt even bother renewing due to low sales. Its strange because only season 1 was released to the US. Its seems many studios are acquiring licenses early and trying to release them quickly while the shows are still relevant to the public.

Funimation doesn't release DVDs/BDs without English dubs, so their costs are much higher. It's possible that some of their failed shows might've been profitable as sub-only releases.

I can see your point. This Sentai's business model to release subs to anime that dont have much western appeal so a profitable way is to release subs. If the subs do sell well, they might re-release a dubbed version like Clannad.

Interesting considering season 2 and 3 never made it stateside. I own the 1st season release by Geneon before it went under. I'd be more willing to purchase Sentai's release had I access to the seasons that weren't released here. Regardless, nice to see this bit of news.

If it's not popular, then shame on the anime fans b/c I find it to be really cool and easily accessible to new viewers. Personally, I enjoyed watching season 1. I still have to catch up to seasons 2 & 3 which Sentai should also grab.

I'm predicting that Sentai picked up all seasons and will surprise us with complete collections of each season to be released this year.

Great now Sentai re-release the first season and acquire the other 2 then you can have my money. You can have even more of if you ever rescue Kyo Kara Maoh and get the third season along with Turn A Gundam and Gundam AGE since Bandai withdrew from DVD production.

Not really going to care about this unless they release seasons 2 and 3 as well. It seems kind of silly to have seasons 1 and 4 on my shelf with no chance of getting the middle 2.

(and season 2 is the one I really want anyway)

Nice to see another season of ZnT released on DVD. I hope this will get us seasons 2 and 3 as well some day.
And I really hope there will be a dubbed version.

Why would that happen... like... ever?

It would be a terrible idea.

Good! May they have it dubbed and call Cristina Vee, Jenny Alyx (Jennifer Alyx), Cassandra Lee, Xanthe Huynh, Johnny Messa (Jonathan Messa) and the rest of the English VAs from the 1st season and everything's on deck!

...It's been out for quite awhile now. Maybe you've looked in the wrong places.

I'd have to agree with RoseTech. Its October 2013 now and I have NOT seen the anime anywhere, not even on Amazon or RightStuf. Not even the Sentai Filmworks shop has anything selling title "Familiar of Zero F".

"Q: You got the rights to the final season of Familiar of Zero. But when will you release it? And will you release the earlier seasons?
A: That's a good question. We want to get Familiar of Zero: F Plus Final out there, but we're still working on acquiring the first 3 seasons, because we want to give those to fans too. Hopefully we'll have an announcement soon."
