    LOL Blood C

    Good luck with that. If the actor's didn't puke doing Deadman Wonderland, then they're gonna need major barf buckets doing this one.

    May peace be with them.

    Wow, you mean there is a chance that English speakers will get to watch more than the first few episodes of Appleseed XIII /and understand it/ in a somewhat timely fashion? Amazing.

    Nothing really interesting... and here I thought Ikkitousen and Blood-C died long ago. Wonder if anyone's even gonna watch it? Looking for Jormungand though

    None of those titles really interest me except for Jormundand. I was hoping they'd get Mawaru Penguindrum or something. They're going after all the fanservice and action shows.

    I am looking forward to the dub of these of Michiko & Hatchin and Aria the Scarlet Ammo.

    Appleseed XIII has not finished airing so I do not know why that was even licensed.

    Fanservice shows are unsurprisingly the biggest sellers in North America.

    Nobody is going to buy Penguindrum or another obscure and artsy show because it doesn't fit into Funimation's "boobies FTW" and "fighting the war on pants" advertising schemes.

    I understand ikki tousen, it was Media Blaster's bread and butter, but Blood C and Aria... Why? I'm sorry but I really hope they do absolutely terrible for them.

    Aside from Sentai licensing Detroit Metal City, none of the announcements from Anime Expo were terribly exciting.

    It's too bad Bandai isn't around to do the E7 AO release. I love my copy of the original show, and Funi's releases are so plain lately.

    Hidan No Aria was a terrible, terrible anime. I don't know why Funi thought it was good enough to get the rights to. :/

    Everyone's saying that Hidan no Aria is a terrible show, but there are apparently a few people that like it and I imagine that it didn't cost much to license it.

    However, I do wonder about Blood-C and am glad to see that Michiko to Hatchin is going to get a dub, especially given the setting.

    Meh, nothing on the list interests me, except for maybe Hidan no Aria (yea I'm in the minority that liked it. I'm probably a devil now. Hehehe) but that was somewhat unsurprising since Funi had the whole series on their YouTube channel for a while now.

    Was already aware of this after a thread a i read a while ago.
    If that's all they are after though, i see now point in them putting Chihayafuru, Mawaru, or other obscure shows on their "what should we dub next?" surveys. Might as well just ignore feedback and go after every Anime with big tits as their slogan.

    *cough*Ben-to*cough* (i wouldn't mind that since the series is pretty funny).

    Hahahaha, if it sells well, could we get a Season 2 of Hidan no Aria?

    If yes, then good job FUNimation, Hysteria mode FTW.

    Nothing worth fangirling about. Funi usually announces their better recent license at Otakon, which its nearby, so i'm crossing fingers.

    I'm glad to see some additional rights for Aria the Scarlet Ammo and i'm happy i can finally complete my Ikki Tousen collection with (Great Guardians and Xtreme Xecutor) but overall there wasn't that much from FUNi.

    It amazes me how people seem to hold a grudge over shows they didn't like. Why care about it so much? Trust me, there's a market for them.

    Michiko to Hatchin Awesome along with Jormungand.

    I heard NISA hinted that nichijou and penguindrum were already licensed, but haven't been announced yet.

    I hope that is true. I would love to have Penguindrum.

    the only ones that interest me are jormungand, appleseed Xlll, and possibly michiko and hatchin (even though i've never watched it, it's premise does captive me).

    my nightmare come true.

    also, i'm rather surprised that ikki tousen great guardians and xtreme xecutor got licensed by funi, i thought media blasters already got the requirements for those two.

    I heard it's because it's not Blood+... They hate on it because it's an alternate o.O.
