Once again, anime distributors at Otakon have been announcing new titles they've acquired for the American home video market. Not as lengthy as the last list I racked up, but here's what will be coming soon to video:

NIS America

  • Umineko no Naku Koro Ni

Funimation

  • Tenchi Muyo: War on Geminar (Saint Knight's Tale)
  • Space Battleship Yamato: Resurrection
  • One Piece Strong World
  • Fairy Tail: Hoo no Miko
  • Akira
  • Aquarion Evol
  • Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine
  • Sankarea
  • Maken-ki! Battling Venus
  • Fairy Tail Season 2
  • One Piece Season 5

Sentai Filmworks

  • Nakaimo: My Little Sister Is Among Them

Feel free to discuss these new releases!

Outside of Lupin, this is extremely lackluster compared to Anime Expo. Maybe I'll grab Akira, but it would only be for completionist sake, not because it's something I'd actually want to watch.

Would have to agree. Outside of maybe getting Saint Knight's Tale to add to my collection of Tenchi titles, either I've seen what is already listed here or have no interest in the listed titles.

Besides Fairy Tail which I enjoyed, I'm interested in Tenchi Muyo: War on Geminar (Saint Knight's Tale). I never heard of it.

Umineko and Lupin are the only ones that caught my eye on this list.

Update: Sentai Filmworks announced that they've snagged Nakaimo: My Little Sister Is Among Them.

And while not anything new for licensing, Sentai also announced that they are planning a Blu-Ray release for Grave of the Fireflies for later this year.
