FUNimation just issued a press release announcing that they've acquired both Dance in the Vampire Bund and Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, to be titled Baka and Test -- Summon the Beasts. And if you've been holding out to watch official releases, you won't have to wait TOO long-- the first four episodes of Bund and the first two episodes of Baka to Test will be streaming starting tomorrow on FUNi's video site, and you can also buy them as download-to-own at FUNimation.com as well. 
  

I've been hearing good thinks about Baka to Test and I'm quite curious about Bund as well, so expect to see some chibi-reviews in the near future! Meanwhile, here's the press release.  

 
 
You know, I'd actually like to see a crossover of these shows. Mina, the lead vampire of Bund, winds up in the school in Baka and Test, in which students fight their way to the top of the class rankings. Bwahaha. 
 
So, are you looking to stream and/or buy?

YEAH!, for FUNimation.com and their video site. You really have to be impressed with how fast they can get those series online.
 
I watched the first episode of Dance of the Vampire Bund online a while back. It was kind of interesting, but I'm not so much into the loli thing. I also have never heard of the second series.

I'll try both but I don't have high expectations for either. Who knows, I might like Vampire Bund.

Everything I want to pick up.
 
Vampire Bund is a good catch and Baka is also good. Truthfully I wont buy them but I'll need to finish the series first to find out.

Funi got BakaTest on their site? Wow, that is great news. The show is not only hilarious, but a good deal of the humor involves things other than inside jokes on Japan or anime.
 
As for Vampire Bund, not my cup of tea, but it seems to be grabbing a lot of eyes over here, so good for them.

So FAST! When I saw the title, I thought that meant they had the license and would put the series out after it was done and even that would take awhile. But TOMORROW?! Woot!

You know, I saw this article yesterday, and I regret not posting "Well, I bet they're gonna edit Dance in the Vampire Bund," because then I'd feel psychic.

Are you accusing FUNimation of stealing from you?
