 Renya...?
 Renya...?
Sure, Big Windup second season might not make it to North America, but it's still making it to Japan. You know what else Japan gets? All the new Code Geass projects! (Though the likelihood of licensing there does seem better.)

Anime!Anime! has announced that amidst the bonus extras on the DVD for Code Geass's Kiseki no Birthday event (which took place in early December), there shall be footage of the new Code Geass project. But...what project is that? I mean, sure, it could be "footage" of mangaka creating the new Shikkoku no Renya manga, but hey, it could also be footage of a new anime project, too, so...hm.
 
Of course, this DVD is coming out in April, so hopefully we'll have gotten announcements of a couple more of these new projects. But in any case I'm pretty sure they've just clinched quite a few added sales in Japan...

Yeah, I'm sure this'll cross our desk soon enough.
 
That said, I wonder how long it'll take before the Shikkoku no Renya manga is made into an Anime. For whatever reason I have a hard time getting behind the manga from this franchise. it just seemed to be nicely wrapped together in animated form.

@John_Martone: It's been my experience that manga based on anime usually aren't as good as original manga. It's kind of like games based on licensed properties: sure, they could go to a lot of effort to make something really cool, but it's rare that they bother, because they figure fans'll buy it no matter what.

What's so wrong with it. I mean, I don't want to go to a U.S held territory and marry it... but I don't hate it.

@John_Martone: That mechanical arm of his looks more ridiculous than a lot of poorly drawn mecha, and I dunno what is up with the weird metal things on his other shoulder...
