I am probably the only person in existence that lost it when I saw Requiem from the Darkness got licensed/has plans to release on DVD.

Looking forward for these licenses, specially:
Arakawa Under the Bridge;
Apocalypse no Toride;
Kamisama no Iutoori Ni;
Madan no Ou to Vanadis, I wish they would license the LN too;
7th Garden, good art and interesting characters;
Akatsuki no Yona;
Dimension W;
Psycome, I don't know if this is popular in Nippon, but I didn't expected this one to be licensed, but I did expect a anime adaptation, I guess it won't happen since the LN is over;
Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu;
Fruits Basket;

That's their final license this year, today ends their 10 days of licensing.
Yen Press will have a few more this/next week :)

Seven Seas add How To Build A Dungeon: Book Of The Demon King

LoL I do remember hearing this earlier, can't believe they really licensed Maou No Hajimekata.

Love you Seven Seas.

Titles added to the thread, thanks!

Also a reminder that this thread will stop updating in a bit more than a week, in preparation for the Q1 2016 license thread. Recent acquisition of Winter 2016 anime titles will be brought over to the next thread for convenience. Feel free to post the titles in this thread though!
