FUNimation licenses Rosario Vampire, Chrome Shelled Regios, Chaos;HEAd and 3 others

Well, FUNimation has once again licensed some more anime for us to wait nearly a year to buy. But, I don’t care since at least there is still anime coming out in the US, even if we do have to wait forever when it isn’t Bandai or Sentai getting  them.

FUNi has announced at their Anime Central panel that they have picked up both seasons  of Rosario + Vampire, Chrome Shelled Regios, Chaos;HEAd, GUNxSWORD, Sora no Otoshimono, and Rideback.

Currently, all titles, except Chrome Chelled Regios and GUNxSWORD, are set to ship in 2011. The other 2 will be out this year. No word on whether they will see a BluRay release though.

Many people have probably already seen Sora no Otoshimono on Crunchyroll, but it is now taken down since Kadokawa only agreed to have it up for the Simulcast. But oh well, you can see it later when it is released on DVD. FUNi will probably release it on their website too, so for the free but legal crowd, there will probably be a way. those who refuse legal ways though, they can go and die in a corner. Don’t steal your anime when it is out to be bought.

FUNimation gets Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations and Thunder Spring Chronicles

Wwll, this was apparently announced back in March, but an official announcement came today. I have yet to see the TV series or movie, so I can’t really comment on whether this is a worth while release. But I know that it was one of the first series to be re-released on BluRay by FUNimation.

Tsubasa is about a world where tons of other CLAMP characters appear in. They do some shit, but I don’t know what the hell that is. I don’t feel like looking it up either, so just buy the series or look up a synopsis on Wikipedia.

Currently, there is no release date set for these to OADs, but I would expect Fall of this year since they are shorter. FUNi may like to take for fucking ever on releases, but I doubt they can for this.

Spice and Wolf II, Eden Of The East Movies, And Chobits Licensed By FUNimation

Well, not too long ago today, FUNi announced 3 more acquisitions. Spice and Wolf II, Eden of the East movies, and Chobits (rescue) were all licensed.

Currently, they are all set for release in 2011 on DVD and BluRay.

Damn, even  a year long wait for a rescued title? FUNi is seriously going to have to start speeding up since Sentai is so fast and is becoming more and more popular.

Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) Licensed By FUNimation

I had really hoped this would be licensed by Bandai or Sentai since FUNimation has extremely long waits from when they license to when they release. But, I guess I am happy it is licensed at all.

Kuroshitsuji (I will be calling it mostly because thats what I am used to) is about a 12 year old boy (Ciel Phantomhive) who runs a business and his demon butler (Sebastian) who is sworn to protect him.

Of the 5 episodes I saw last year, I really enjoyed it.Can’t wait to complete it when the DVDs come out hopefully later this year, but knowing FUNi, we will have to wait till next year.

FUNi May Not Edit DVD Version of Dance In The Vampire Bund

Well, it now seems FUNiamtion is starting to have some common sense and may not edit the DVD release of Dance In The Vampire Bund. They said they are going to wait for the rest of the episodes to come out before making a final decision, meaning they realized they fucked up and are just trying to make fans like them again.

I hope they won’t, but FUNimation isn’t always the smartest company in my opinion. Really, there isn’t much that they have to worry about. I am pretty sure everything is legal in the US since the characters are all of age and it’s not hardcore porn. Handley may have got screwed over, but without someone trying to release something in the original form, we will never know how far the dumb asses in the legal system will go.

Dance In The Vampire Bund US DVD Release To Be Editted

Well, what do you know, FUNimation is being a fuck ass again. This time they will be censoring Dance IN The Vampire Bund on DVD because “some material may be objectionable to some audiences.” Well, here is the problem, ANIME WATCHERS ARE USED TO “OFFENSIVE” MATERIAL FUNIMATION!

Hopefully the negative stuff from the viewers will convince them not too or the licensees will say no to the edits since this  is completely idiotic and will only lead to more fansub downloads thanwha would initially happen.

FUNimation is full of dumb asses.

Censors = shit

Uncut = great

Baka to Test to Shōkanjū And Dance In The Vampire Bund Licensed By FUNimation

Baka to Test to Shōkanjū, the Hideyoshi fanservice and gag anime has been licensed for simulcast streaming  online by FUNimation along with Loli vampire anime Dance In the Vampire Bund.

Baka to Test will start showing the first 2 episodes on March 5th at 11Am EST along with the first 4 episodes on Vampire Bund. I recommend both shows  to people that enjoy good anime, but those who enjoy things like Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Digimon should stay away from my Baka to Test so it is not ruined. I’m serious, if you think those 3 shows I just named are really good, quit reading now.

So glad this is happening since the Fansubs  groups were having the typical fansub drama  to make everyone feel sorry for them. Seriously, they should just start a fansub soap opera since that is how they act most of the time.
