It's bothersome how Funimation have decided to sell S&WII only as a DVD/Blu-ray combo. Why would someone who's interested in buying the DVD want the Blu-ray release, as well?

I won't be buying S2 for awhile, anyhow. I'm too into the manga to want to refresh my memory and I disliked the last half too much to rush and order it, ASAP.

In case anyone was really curious, the Limited Edition is an artbox for the first and second season:


Though I wouldn't exactly call it "snug":

I dont really get whats happening... I watch Higashi no Eden on -English Sub-
and as for Spice and Wolf, I watched it on English Dub so I was waiting (still am) for 'Spice and Wolf II English Dub' to come out.

-and whats about Chobits being re-dubbed?

That's the Limited Edidion. The Standard Edition would seem to be the one that uses the art from above.

Their season 1 release was fantastic and the fact that they're releasing a LE and on bluray makes it even better.

People, please support the show so we can get a season 3! :)

Hmm Spice and Wolf II? This is not a joke right because this has got to be one of the best pieces of news I have heard in a long time. Loved both seasons and FUNIMATION did a decent job with the dubs so not much of a turn off like some of the dubs that I have seen. Looks like there may be hope for our 3rd season if this sells well. Any hope is good enough to grab onto even if it is a small ray of hope I will take hold of it.

They said they were going to be releasing Spice and Wolf II with English dubs sometime this year but they havent announced a concrete release date.

I prefer to watch it with dubs alot more then having to read subtitles while trying to concentrate on whats going on in the screen at the same time.

I'm so excited that they have aquired Spice and Wolf II. I just finished the first season not too long ago and I kept checking the news page to see when it was going to be aquired. So now to wait for the DVD release....

All you have to do, Is not watch the dub.

Finally, I though that I was going to have to watch Spice and Wolf with subs. I liked the dubbed version, so hopefully they will release it soon.

And BTW, Funi, where's my Evangelion 02: You Can [NOT] Advance >_>


The DVD's not even out in Japan yet. It's pretty much a given that Funi will pick it up as soon as they can, though.
But the Paradise Lost DVDs aren't out yet either, are they? Yet they still licensed it.

They will surely get 2.0 at some point, however.

Also, here is another source. This is the source that AnimeSuki used for updating their license database with these licenses.

I wonder how they'll end up dubbing Eden's first episode


Watch Beck. Thats how.
It will be a confusing mess but what ever.

as far as dubbing goes, Funi does a decent job.



I'm glad to see they are still getting into older shows.


Stoked on Eden.
Definite buy for sure.

Chobits? The show wasn't even that great. You're tearing me apart Funi! :<
