Seeing licenses for Hunter x Hunter, Haikyuu manga, Kuroko no Basket really made my day better ^_^

Plus not some bad licenses for Sentai Flmworks...but I hope the dubs are good for the anime I care about in their licenses...if they actually do end up dubbing them.

That is because the amount of licencors have increased....last year we had Anime Limited formed and this year we have Animatsu which focuses on releasing sentai lincenses to uk.

The amount of new titles we are getting now licensed in the uk have increased when compared to the rate they were being released two years ago.
