Yeah....
why do all the bad shows get picked up first?
I mean Level E, madoka anybody?

Madoka is already licensed by Aniplex of America. Plus, Star Driver aired last fall and those two shows you mentioned they came out right in the beginning of this year.

maybe because Star Driver came out first? -___-


Yeah, and Fractale came out after Star Driver did, but had already been picked-up by FUNimation since it began its run with the Winter 2011 season. Just because something is released first doesn't mean that it will be licensed first~ =w="

This is good news. I'm glad Funimation didn't get it.

I just can't see it working out as a dub though. The original is so fabulous. Not to mention that there are a lot of lines that wouldn't translate well into English.

Ah well, even if they dub it, it's not like I'd be forced to watch the dub anyway.

yeah, english dub would ruin the "appurivosu!!"

>.o kiraboshi!
