This is excellent news. I just really hope they really release all 26 episodes in one Blu-Ray set, something Bandai failed to do with the first season (they did release a full DVD set, but the Blu-Ray is in multiple parts, which is frankly not worth the money imo). God I would love for Sentai to grab the first season as well, but that's just wishful thinking.


They will release it in 2 half sets most likely then release the full set later on then again I could be wrong.

Great! I love this show. :D

I hope people actually support them, I know I will. Sentai's been doing really good, releasing BD's and dubs for shows that probably wouldn't have gotten them.

Oh, thank god.

I was thinking I'd never be able to own all of K-On! after Bandai tanked in America. Fuck yeah.

Bby, it's all good.

I don't care much for K-On myself, but the fans will be happy, and I'm sure it'll rake in the dough. Good play, Sentai.

Oh boy is Sentai ever ambitious; let's hope they don't crash and burn. But this is good news. At the very least, I'm looking forward to paying less than $900 for the entire season.

Now can we get back to trying to get Gundam please? Ya know like Turn A?

Feb 21, 2012 8:22 AM by Roloko

Hmm... Now you know I'll have to buy this, right?

I hate Yui's English voice... It's doesn't fit her. Honestly, I think her original English voice actor (I'm not the only one on MAL who watched the original English dub, am I? You know, the one that was dubbed by some like, Filipino studio or something... And all the girls sounded like they were moe 30-year-olds... However, I thought Yui's voice was cute in that one. Then again, I watched that what, two years ago?) was better than the new one.

If you asked me, Yui sounds like her voice is being FORCED to sound cute...

Will only buy if Bandai reduces the price of the Blu ray singles for S1, aka, never.

Figured this would be soon. It was only a matter of time.

Feb 20, 2012 11:39 PM by Forest-kun

Eh.. not excited for this.

Feb 20, 2012 11:17 PM by Resource

presumably because they are the only company not called Funimation left.

Better late then never.

I got the first season, then I found out Bandai wouldn't release the second. :( Now Sentai picked it up. I'm very happy. Thanks Sentai.
