Near the end of 2011 to the present they've been much more active in licensing and including dubs.

Well, that figures. The moment I finish watching the sub the dub is announced.
Ah well. If I ever re-watch it, I'll go for the dub.

Man,Sentai is working hard to get up there with Funi.All they need to do is get an anime like FMA Brotherhood.By that I mean,an anime that is popular,sells & is well-received.Is it Gintama or an anime that's has yet to be made?
My Devianart

Oh & Space Brothers is still the best anime ever,in my opinion.Even when competing with Attack on Titan.

Hopefully they keep the same dubbers. Vee was actually pretty good as Mio.

Somebody had to pick up the license, and I guess they were it. It's especially good that Sentai appears to have a vested interest in preserving the dub, seeing as it's collaborating with Bang Zoom! on production. That said, Cristina Valenzuela or I'm not buying.

K-ON! returning for more was a given, but the question begs to answered: What will Sentai not license? And if they're grabbing stuff related to Bandai's licenses, then them grabbing a gundam series or the new Eureka Seven anime wouldn't be a stretch (I know Sentai isn't the only anime company, but I have to wonder what Funimation is doing? Surely Level-E and the Basara movie isn't all they're grabbing, right?).

I promised myself I would never watch that horrible dub again, however the scene with Yui and Ritsu trash talking the English language will be full of delicious irony and will be the only dubbed scene I watch.

I got the first season, then I found out Bandai wouldn't release the second. :( Now Sentai picked it up. I'm very happy. Thanks Sentai.

I approve of this choice
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Will only buy if Bandai reduces the price of the Blu ray singles for S1, aka, never.

Hmm... Now you know I'll have to buy this, right?

I hate Yui's English voice... It's doesn't fit her. Honestly, I think her original English voice actor (I'm not the only one on MAL who watched the original English dub, am I? You know, the one that was dubbed by some like, Filipino studio or something... And all the girls sounded like they were moe 30-year-olds... However, I thought Yui's voice was cute in that one. Then again, I watched that what, two years ago?) was better than the new one.

If you asked me, Yui sounds like her voice is being FORCED to sound cute...

Oh boy is Sentai ever ambitious; let's hope they don't crash and burn. But this is good news. At the very least, I'm looking forward to paying less than $900 for the entire season.

I don't care much for K-On myself, but the fans will be happy, and I'm sure it'll rake in the dough. Good play, Sentai.

Oh, thank god.

I was thinking I'd never be able to own all of K-On! after Bandai tanked in America. Fuck yeah.

I hope people actually support them, I know I will. Sentai's been doing really good, releasing BD's and dubs for shows that probably wouldn't have gotten them.

This is excellent news. I just really hope they really release all 26 episodes in one Blu-Ray set, something Bandai failed to do with the first season (they did release a full DVD set, but the Blu-Ray is in multiple parts, which is frankly not worth the money imo). God I would love for Sentai to grab the first season as well, but that's just wishful thinking.

They will release it in 2 half sets most likely then release the full set later on then again I could be wrong.
