While I'm both surprised and excited to see Funi license Level E, do they still have any plans to license shows based on the results of their poll? I'd really like my own copy of Tatami Galaxy or Penguindrum.

Same I really want Mawaru Penguindrum. Oh well if they don't get it we always have Sentai or NIS. =D

I'd rather have it dubbed though or if NIS gets if maybe they can explain some of the symbolism in their hardback books?

Well I guess Level E is leaving Crunchyroll soon since Funi will be streaming it better watch it now since Funi's player is shit.

Well wouldn't it be more convenient for them to license stuff that will be profit to them....

But then again just because a series does well on their polls doesn't mean it will bring in some $$

Then why even have a survey/poll to begin with if they are not going to give us what we want in the end?

Or NIS will. I really hope for some Gundam or Penguindrum.

I really hope Gundam can still be licensed in the states. Cause the older series are not subbed when it comes to R2 releases. I guess getting an R1 release is out of the question for AGE since they are subbing the R2 Blurays don't know about the DVD releases though if they are not maybe Sentai can nab it and release subtitled DVDs.

Sentai licenses something every week. I wonder when they're going to run out money. Surely they can't keep it up forever.


Still wondering where they are getting all this money from too its scaring me cause if they get too much series at once and hardly no one buys then they just sunk their own ship. Then we will just have NIS, Rightstuf, Discotek, Media Blasters, and Funi left.

Enough reason for me to watch Level E! Togashi just knows what I like and delivers it. And Yu Yu is still my 3rd fav anime.
