As long as both of these shows keep getting better, I'll definitely be buying Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita, Kokoro Connect, and possibly Natsuyuki Rendezvous. Thank you Sentai.

I'm really hoping that Sentai changes their minds and gives a dub to Mayo Chiki! and Seikon no Qwaser.


Why would they want to waste money on a dub for Breastmilk palooza?

I wouldn't mind a Mayo Chiki BD release though.


Media Blasters would. I was really expecting them to get it since they did most of Queens Blade and Seikon no Qwaser was right up their alley.


I'm still not happy with Media Blasters untill they continue releasing Bakuman :(

Wow surprised they going to do Kiseki eps.

They licensed about 2 decent titles among all of those. Good on you, Sentai.

Pretty nice list!

Better than FUNi. -.-


Funi is only getting series that will likely profit from dubs. Since ADV became Sentai they have a new model where niche titles get subbed while the series that do good in stream get Bluray/Bilingual DVD and dubbed. So they can get more every season than Funi.

Natsu no Sora, really? Never expected that to get licensed. This is fantastic.

I got half-excited when I saw iDOLM@STER, then saw Xenoglossia.

Glad Kokoro Connect is licensed.

Wow, Mayo Chiki! and Seikon no Qwaser... too bad they're both in DVDs only though. sentai, why y u almost always only license for dvd versions?

Jul 4, 2012 1:49 AM by Rukaliini

Unlike FUNimation, Sentai is actually licensing some good stuff!

Space Bros FTW!!

God damn Sentai, you guys really don't hold back. Too bad Moyashimon isn't up there, but nice to see the long list

Jeez Sentai. If that company ever dies, that would be very bad.
