If was funimation or some other company that seems to regularly dubs anime I would be excited.

I swear, Sentai must have wizards for them. They were the only ones in the world who must have thought GuP would be a success, and here we are.

So far as I am concerned, their UBW was well dubbed and that Michelle Ruff pulled off a good portrayal as Saber since she filled in that role because of Kate Higgin's scheduling conflict.

Shinsekai Yori, Chuunibyo, Btooom!, Girls und Panzer, Fate/Stay Night and To Love-ru Darkness? And I'm hearing good things about the prices as well. Also, are their dubs good? Hope they are. Nothing's better than anime with good Japanese and English dubs.

Chuunibyou? Yes! May they have JYB, Wendee Lee, Michelle Ruff, Kate Higgins, Mela Lee, Karen Strassman, Cassandra Lee and Spike Spencer in the cast if ever they dub it.

FSN relicensed? What what? GOOD! Now may they have some more of Geneon's former licensed titles and bring in the salad of fun and adventure. (I also hope that Nanoha StrikerS gets licensed as well by them one day)

I thought Funimation got that???

They let it go OOP along with Higurashi, Zero no Louise (or whatever its called), Kyo Kara Maoh, and a couple others they rescued from Geneon.

Actually they have the 4th season of Zero No Tsukima season 2 and 3 they need to work on.
