I expect Sentai to maybe license a few shows during the mid month if not later. Not bad though, I might pick up Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii in the future.

This is just wishful thinking, but I would love Viz to get Ushio & Tora. They haven't licensed many anime lately so I doubt it, but I can dream...

I didn't know about Animatsu yet though. I wonder how their prices compare to that of other UK distributors.

Expect huge license announcements from the Anime Expo this week both from titles that area ring in the summer and other shows as well.
