What's the new license?
What's the new license?
So I'm very excited to be able to announce a new FUNimation license first thing tomorrow morning (as in 12:01am Saturday morning-- yes, I'm staying up for it!).

So excited, in fact, that I just went and bought some cool merchandise for the show that's been picked up, and then I realized that I just can't hang onto it all! So what am I going to do to get rid of it? Give it to one of you guys, of course! (Especially since I know not all of you will get to benefit from our piles of giveaway stuff at the Anime Vice panel tomorrow at 5pm at Fanime Con.)

So here's how it works: in the comments, guess three titles that you think FUNimation might have the license to. (Well, you can guess as many as you want, but only the first THREE that you list will count as their official guesses for the contest!)

I'll make the announcement at 12:01am Saturday morning, and will RANDOMLY pick one winner from those who guessed it right. And that winner will, of course, receive something very awesome and very related to the title in question!

That said: I will offer NO hints, NO confirmations, and NO denials. You get nothin' from me until the official announcement goes up! So you'll have to do it blind. :)

All right, my guesses are: Asura Cryin', Pandora Hearts, or Saki.

Those are completely random guesses by the way and one of them is my own personal wish. xD

TheBigN: I've got no chance, haha. I guessed all newer series. xD
You've got some good guesses there though. ^^

Don't know what to put as third.

Doubt any of these are especially likely but it's stuff I'd like to see.

My guesses would be either Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom, Eden of the East, or Toradora.

Since Funi currently has streaming rights for Phantom, it wouldn't surprise me if they chose to flat out license it. The popularity of Toradora and Eden of the East amongst anime fans could also be enough for the two titles to have a shot at being licensed.

A Toradora license is EXACTLY what I wanna see.

3. K-ON

Slayers Revolution would be my guess, but that I think that was announced awhile back.

: Idolm@ster Xenoglossia
: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (live action Sailor Moon)
: Slayers Revolution (just in case)

I'm torn as whether to avoid any of the shows listed on Funimation's latest survey, or go with straight up intuition.  Ah, well.  Here are my guesses:

1  Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei
2  Spice and Wolf
3  Kannagi

I'd like Sailor Moon. I missed out last time they were released in NA.

Hmmm... my guess (and wants ^^;;;): Sengoku Basara and Eden of the East. ... One more title left... Eh, stupid - but licensing rights to the new Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood series since I think they just have broadcast rights.
