So now I need to watch Level E ASAP before Crunchyroll takes it down.
Like I didn't have enough things to watch already -_-

Not really interested in watching a series with a historical, japanese setting in english with american accents, but whatever helps the franchise.

Level E was good and very enjoyable... and I had been wanting to watch the Sengoku Basara movie, so I guess it's all good news.

Great news. Level E was cool, looking forward to that to come out, hopefully on BD. I already picked up Sengoku Basara Seasons 1 and 2, the movie should be a nice addition as well.

That vocal cast is pretty sick (except for Sam Riegel). May consider checking this out just because of that.

Signs of a Sengoku Basara 3: Utage North American release?

I hope so.

I am a happy man. I wasn't sure if this was going to get licensed or get lost of the void of great unlicensed shows. I look forward to the DVD/Blu Ray release date.

Anyway, Level E. Good show!

Home Video Rights confirmed for Level E

The series was created by Yoshihiro Togashi, best known for writing and illustrating the Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter × Hunter series.”

home entertainment = DVD/BD

Enough reason for me to watch Level E! Togashi just knows what I like and delivers it. And Yu Yu is still my 3rd fav anime.

You just know Sentai is gonna license something else next week that will eclipse this announcement.

Sentai licenses something every week. I wonder when they're going to run out money. Surely they can't keep it up forever.

Still wondering where they are getting all this money from too its scaring me cause if they get too much series at once and hardly no one buys then they just sunk their own ship. Then we will just have NIS, Rightstuf, Discotek, Media Blasters, and Funi left.

Dat Level E. I'm half scared and half super excited. I will gladly buy it if it's good.

Yay!! I've been waiting for someone to get Level E :D

Or NIS will. I really hope for some Gundam or Penguindrum.

I really hope Gundam can still be licensed in the states. Cause the older series are not subbed when it comes to R2 releases. I guess getting an R1 release is out of the question for AGE since they are subbing the R2 Blurays don't know about the DVD releases though if they are not maybe Sentai can nab it and release subtitled DVDs.
