      Oh well.

      Yes, we now have three of the four big titles from the last round of Yuri: El Cazador (due out in November, too) and Mnemosyne (slated for Spring 2010) were picked up by Funimation and now Blue Drop was acquired by Sentai. We already know that Nanoha StrikerS is still in limbo due to poor Nanoha sales here in North America. I'd like to see that get picked up, as well.

      We did better this year, since Aoi Hana was licensed immediately by Crunchyroll. Still trying to convince them to look into DVD distribution. Write them if you want Aoi Hana on DVD. :-) If they pick up Sasamekikoto, I'd be very pleased.

      Cheers,

          I wonder if they'll do individual dvds or just release it as a boxset?
          Either way will be good, I just want to hold them in my hands-no

            (RS offers it for $30). Though, I would rather provide a website of

                As far as I've seen and looked up, Sentai has rereleased series from Geneon and Central Park Media with their original dubs intact, but have yet to produce any dubs for their own shows. By and large their releases are good (at least judging from the Clannad release), albeit there will be the occasional, very noticeable typos but nothing that would really ruin anything.

                After all this time, I was finally this close to getting around to watching a fansub of Blue Drop. Now instead I just have to wait a few months for the official legal release--Pachy

                  From what I've gathered, Sentai Filmworks is part of a complicated

                    For the time being, you should assume that all Sentai releases are sub-only unless you hear otherwise (unless its a re-release of a series that was dubbed in the past). The only Sentai releases that have had dubs are re-releases like Mahoromatic. All Sentai releases are 12-13ish episode sets unless its a short OVA that's only a few episodes long.

                    Also, for all intents and purposes, Sentai is ADV by another name. ADV never announced the license as ADV nor ever expressed any intention of dubbing it. The first mention of a Blue Drop license was yesterday in a Sentai announcement. They also announced You're Under Arrest Season 2, Special A, Polyphonica, and Tears to Tiara yesterday. All of these titles will be released in November. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-09-02/sentai-filmworks-adds-blue-drop-polyphonica-special-a
