This is pretty good news. What do you all think?

That is huge news. It either means Funimation can afford the expense or they think they can turn a huge profit on the titles.

I am content with Black Lagoon Second Barrage being released.

I think this is the reason. They are releasing some pretty big titles, like, Black Lagoon, Black Lagoon: 2nd Barrage, Fate/Stay Night, Hellsing Ultimate, etc etc. They'll make some pretty good money on those titles alone.



Funimation can afford the expense
But I hope this is the reason.

I was seriously about to post a thread on this then I saw you beat me to it.

Also, I'm excited about there being more Saiunkoku coming.

Yeah I also hope they can afford the expense. Cause if they only got profits on there mind the quality will probably go down hill fast. The only series I'm intrested in, in that list is Paradise Kiss I already got the first two volumes. I Probably need to hurry up and get the rest.

I'm disappointed by the lack of Kyo Kara Maoh season one. I want that.

It would be good if Funimation were to re-dub Higurashi (Something I hope will happen). Geneon's dub for that was terrible.
