I do not know. Only a handful of good licensors are left which is sad cause these guys are dubbing animes with excellence and Funimation and Bandai are amongst them.

Mmm? I hope not. Bandai is one of the good companies that gives excellent dubs for anime if I am not mistaken. BTW, I am glad for this licensing. At least I will not be reading subs as it tends to take my focus away from the scene.


I don't want them to go either cause who will get Gundam after they are gone? T_T

They finally gave up on it cause the last one they released was subbed only. I fear that they are the next company to fall what with their store closing at the end of this year and all.

I never got to see much of the .hack series when it was on TV, is that a prerequisite to watching .hack/Quantum? I'll admit I saw it on Funimation's site the other day, and it looked interesting.

Is Guilty Crown good? or what type of anime is it?. Hulu has it but i haven't watch it...

Wow, I remember seeing ./hack on television like over 7 years ago lol. Wasn't very interesting in my opinion though.
On the otherhand, I can't wait for Guilty Crown.
It's rather deep actually, most people just don't understand it though.

Im glad Funimation got this and NOT sentai, because Sentai has been licensing so many shows just for subbed only. which I can't stand x_x. I'm extremely happy they at least gave a excellent dub for Angel Beats! though.

high production values + Noitamina = win?
(takes a look at PVs, reviews, and No.6)
no ... just a fine watch

Funimation always gets Noitamina titles and has always simulcasted them...no surprise here.


True that.

a little too quick to be licensing an anime before it starts airing, don't y'all think? *shrugs* eh, still can't wait to check out guilty crown.

I was thinking it would be something up Bandai's alley, but I'm happy to see Funi getting it cause that means its going to be dubbed regardless so I can rest easy now. xD

Could have expected they'd get their hands on Guilty Crown. The show looks like it'll be the best of the season.
with the time block it airs its a given they would pick it up and i expect a fial form it lie the other shows that have been aired in that time blakc in the last year. (c for exaple peoepl were saying the same thing about it and look how it was)
