Fall 2022 anime which were licensed before the quarter began will also be carried over for convenience.

This post will be continuously updated as more licenses are announced. If you have a license that we are missing, please feel free to post it in this thread.

So Hidive announced that they will be streaming Urusei Yatsura remake, does that mean Sentai has the home video license as well?

Bingo, HIDIVE is essentially the streaming platform for Sentai Filmworks' licenses, if one of them has a title then it is very likely that the other one has it too. I was waiting for either to confirm the title and it seems like HIDIVE just did, so it has been added to the list now.

Ah balls, Akutsu got licenced. For series like this it's a kiss od death, since in most cases it will never catch up to fan translations. I hope someone keeps translating it.

Wait, so doesn't Viz Media already have the license for the new Bleach? Doesn't that mean they will be releasing it on blu-ray at some point?

As MadanielFL mentioned, Viz Media holds the license for Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen, so we'll see a home video release through them. The post has been edited to include that now, thanks!
