I'm not buying ef if it doesn't come out on blu ray. I have perfectly good Thora encodes of the series in native 1080p on my external to know that the DVD's would remain on the shelf...forever. I'll support Minori by buying Manga Gamer's translation of the game. And I already have half the ef series on blu ray in its native Japanese format, so unless Sentai Filmworks gives me a good enough reason to actually purchase their version of the series (i.e blu ray), I'm unfortunately going to skip it as it would be an absolute waste of money. But I do plan on getting Clannad on blu ray though, and only because it's an important prequel to After Story, 'cause I have no doubt now that they'll eventually release that on blu ray :D

What the hell Sentai? Other than a BD release of Clannad, thank goodness for anime fans that have Blu-ray player, unlike me.
I have a feeling they'll dub these loli anime since I realized that they mostly dub fan-service, moe, and ecchi. They never dub the good ones. (Clannad is an exception though since it is one of the best series I've ever seen)

Well, looks like I'll have to pick up or at least rent ef since that anime's been recommended like crazy to me.

Sentai you failed me....

Why couldn't you grab Asobi ni Iku yo....WHY?!

You are the Ecchi Masters, stop letting Funimation get your shows.

I'm interested in the ef tales series and I hope that show gets a dub. If not, there are also dub titles I'm interested in from Sentai (Angel Beats! and Highschool of the Dead, despite the later I really didn't like the series, but I want to see how they handled the dub).
