God damn it. Funimation got a hold of another Yuasa show that I want blurays of. Those fucks have been sitting on the incenses for The Tatami Galaxy for years with no intention of putting out a physical release.

They've had Kids on the Slope, AKB0048 and Hiiro no Kakera for a while. The news is about complete collection releases and a combo pack re-release, not new acquisitions.
