Funimation accidentally announces Eureka Seven

Eureka Seven is currently unlicensed after its former license holder Bandai Entertainment went under leaving prices for the now out of print dvds to sky rocket. It has been under speculation by fans for a while now that Funimation would be rescuing the series after picking up the show’s sequel Eureka Seven AO.

Early copies of the new One Piece dvd (Season 5 Volume 4) that will be coming out on December 3 have shown up with a Eureka Seven trailer announcing a blu-ray/dvd combo pack. While the trailer itself has yet to surface online, fans were quick to grab a few screen shots from the disk. Funimation has yet to make a formal announcement about acquiring the show, and though they still have time before the dvd in question hits retailers, it is a little strange to see such a major license rescue slip through the cracks like this.

How is it accidental when they put out a press release announcing this months ago?

If you could link me to that press release I'd retract this entire post. I did my research and couldn't find one mention of Eureka Seven by Funimation outside of AO let alone an announcement of this license rescue.

NM it was a bunch of other Bandai/Sunrise stuff. I thought Eureka was in that bunch.

Just thought I'd add that Anime News Network sourced this article and received confirmation from Funimation on the matter. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-11-25/funimation-licenses-eureka-seven-tv-anime-series

It isn't an accident they truly have the license.
