It isn't listed in the Q4 2014 License thread, so it shouldn't be in any of the earlier ones either. I'll add it to this thread though, since we already have a title licensed in November, and a handful of titles from late December.

I don't know if there was a previous thread this was mentioned in, but Nodame Cantabile was licensed by Siren Visual in early December.

Does this mean these shows are getting dubbed?


That depends on the company doing the licensing. Some always do dubs, some sometimes do, some never do.

This is awesome news and all, but since when do Sentai have rights to release anything outside of North America? Cos the article mentions releases in North and South America, as well as New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Of course, I'm so excited that Parasyte's going to be available for me to add to my collection, but this does seem odd. Unless they mean that other companies will release it for Sentai in those territories?


FINALLY!!!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for them to license this series
