I don't get why they're licensing things that haven't even aired yet.

If it were me, I'd do it to secure a title I think will be popular before the price of the license goes up because it's popular.

Girls und Panzer... This is a joke, right?

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

You know, it amuses me that Funimation's the one with the pending suit against it for creating a monopoly when Sentai's the one grabbing tons of anime every other week. Not that I mind with their prices.

I doubt I'll buy it to see, but I hope Sentai sticks with the existing subs for Fate/Stay Night. Their Unlimited Blade Works release had a lot of really obvious translation errors in it.

Since Sentai is part of CR's publishing crew, don't CR also get the other titles like Chuunibyou?

Does Sentai do dubs? Not that I care, I'm just wondering. I don't keep up with this shit.

Also, Sentai will end up owning EVERYTHING.

I think Sentai is just concerned with making money from licenses. Leave it to the Criterion Collection to sort out whether a show is pretentious good enough to be called anime of the year.

I can see how giving chuunibyou to TAN would kind of even out the CR and TAN licenses a tiny bit, but... I really wish Sentai gave all those licenses to Crunchy >_> Anyways, thank you Sentai for all the awesome shows XD Crunchy, get Robotics;Notes. I swear if Funi gets it... My god...

They only dub about half the stuff they license.The rest is give out via sub-only.Most the shows they dub are fairly popular or known to have a decent following (shown through streaming numbers).Small & unknown (well, practically unknown) series are released sub only.

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

Chuunibyou? Yes! May they have JYB, Wendee Lee, Michelle Ruff, Kate Higgins, Mela Lee, Karen Strassman, Cassandra Lee and Spike Spencer in the cast if ever they dub it.


FSN relicensed? What what? GOOD! Now may they have some more of Geneon's former licensed titles and bring in the salad of fun and adventure. (I also hope that Nanoha StrikerS gets licensed as well by them one day)

Shinsekai Yori, Chuunibyo, Btooom!, Girls und Panzer, Fate/Stay Night and To Love-ru Darkness? And I'm hearing good things about the prices as well. Also, are their dubs good? Hope they are. Nothing's better than anime with good Japanese and English dubs.

So far as I am concerned, their UBW was well dubbed and that Michelle Ruff pulled off a good portrayal as Saber since she filled in that role because of Kate Higgin's scheduling conflict.

I swear, Sentai must have wizards for them. They were the only ones in the world who must have thought GuP would be a success, and here we are.
