Here in germany we often use the english title, but the manga in germany calls "Die Stadt, in der es mich nicht gibt", so the name of the anime in germany is "ERASED - Die Stadt, in der es mich nicht gibt" which means "ERASED - The town where I dont exist". Still stupid with the ERASED but yeah.

Lmao, this reminds me of some of the weird localization titles some Hollywood movies got during the 50s here in Sweden

E.g. "Bringing Up Baby" became "Ingen fara på taket" (No danger on the roof)

I really prefer when funimation gets the licenses on the good shows. They have a 60-90% chance to get dubbed especially this season they will have like 9 shows rather than the regular 6 new shows and fairy tail and once piece. So 9 new shows, the regular long running ones, plus heavy object and whatever long running ones from fall season. Plus they are dubbing Snow white red hair by the end of the month and putting it online 3 episodes at a time, not a regular release so I would guess 10-12 shows being dubbed during this season as in not later but within a month after the first episode then released weekly. I just hope the quality does not suffer and they prepared for this. Last spring I think it was they had so many broadcast dubs that some shows had less quality.

I also would prefer aniplex over sentai filmworks for the good shows, sentai for some reason gets great shows rated 8.5+ by the community like Shirobako and never even dubs it. Aniplex does this sometimes, but I think Sentai is the worst when it comes to not localizing some of the great shows. I have gotten big into subs once I ran out of top- notch dubs that had already been released, so it's not as big of a deal now but when an action story that really is better without having to read so you can enjoy the artwork gets a great english dubbing, then I prefer it. Unless it is an all star seiyuu cast.

Azumanga Daioh was a anime that I really loved in High School. I also do remember seeing 8 Man as a kid early in the morning on Sci-Fi. I would like to rewatch it again soon.

@harkan: Every year, Vertical conducts a manga and/or light novel licensing survey. This decides which series they will license next. The survey serves as what is most demanded by the fans.

They won't announce their picked series until they've finalized their decision with the Japanese company that holds the license. They usually announce it on their convention panels or as a surprise on their Twitter account :)
