Glad Funimation got Shangri-La. Didn't think it'd ever get licensed.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

Rewatched Shangri-La a few months ago. I'd have to say that while Gonzo could have made a better adaptation, the show definitely had a very rich futuristic setting. The mystery and supersition of Atlas was an interesting concept and could have been explained better.

I'm actuallly surprised they got Shangri-La. It's been a while since I heard that title. All I remember was "great show."

Raildex where?

Funimation should slow down with hoarding licenses and actually release some of the stagnating titles that they've previously acquired.

Sankarea is a good pick up; even if only just started it looks like its gonna be a good adaption; first episode stayed true enough to the manga at least.

1. Because this "shit" sells. Fanservice shows are what tend to do the best these days, and considering the success of High School of the Dead, you can't blame them for jumping at this.

Critically acclaimed but oscure shows like The Tatami Galaxy are risky. Stuff like Sekirei sells out.

2. In Japan. The companies in Japan have not sent them materials to begin working on Steins;Gate yet. The reason being they're trying to prevent reverse-importation. This Fall or next Spring is when we probably will see Steins;Gate. The last volume came out in February in Japan.

Shangri-la to be removed from crunchyroll "due to licensing restrictions".
(http://www.crunchyroll.co.uk/forumtopic-762265/shangri-la-marathon)

Presumably the two things are linked.
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Monthly light novel sales ranks (from Jan 2015)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

It is cause I heard that Shangri La was being released in August by Funi and it should be on their website and youtube soon if it is already not.

NIS will pick those up eventually.

I'm not surprised about Sankarea, it's a popular anime this season. I wonder if Nyaruko-san will get licensed, since it's up there in popularity with Sankarea despite the horrible MC.

Funi has the rights to Steins;Gate and even if NIS did get it we would still have to wait (well shorter since it would be subbed instead of dubbed) cause Japan fears reverse importation.
