This kinda give me hope for YowaPeda and Kuroko if the North American anime market is going to give the sports genre another chance.

Please ;_;

Oh, wait, Free S2's getting treatment.

I didn't mention Free! cause its popular and it has a big fandom in the US unlike Slam Dunk, YowaPeda, and Kuroko

Since when did Funi get Slam Dunk? I thought they were done with the sports genre after Big Windup failed...

Here's hoping Archonia will import Devilman, oh how much I'd love that.

Also getting Ranma BD Set 4 and I might get The Little Norse Prince because Isao Takahata reasons.
