            Just so it's noted, the original PR had the wrong SRPs for all the Food Wars! The Second Plate releases (listed for the same price as the first season, which is twice as long). When you go to order it, do make sure that site has the corrected SRP listed.

              Is it me, or is Sentai having a rather skimpy month in releases?

                Just about the time I trust Funimation again and go to buy some of their titles, they start delaying series again with no real explanation. The latest victim was the upcoming release of Hybird x Heart: Magias Academy Ataraxia next month. I just got a cancellation notice from where I pre-ordred it this afternoon.

                  Perhaps, but looking at their list of shows they have to still release, it's about what I would expect. The more recent simulcasted shows are out, since they probably don't have the materials from the JP home video releases available to them yet. Sunrise probably still hasn't sent them materials for the shows they have besides The Big O, otherwise we'd see movement on that. They also moved from part sets to multi-cour / multi-season sets, which are going to take more time to do since more content releasing at once. Which is probably part of the reason it's taking so long for LOGH to be released (maybe 26+ ep sets).

                  More importantly, let's not forget that Sentai is based out of Houston, which is still recovering from Harvey. They did mention that a portion of their staff had lost their homes. I imagine we'll see more slow months from them due to this.

                    I had completely forgotten about Harvey. As for LOTGH, I hope they're not planning a single complete set

                      I actually wonder if Sentai is dubbing LOTGH since its taking so long. As crazy as it sounds since its an old show this might be one they want to try make a big release out of. Especially since starting next year there will be new LOTGH.

                        You know, I did hear a rumor about a dub for it a while back. Hmm, I guess we'll see what happens.

                          According to this the Japanese side actually hired Ocean to dub a few episodes into a pilot. Seems like the Japanese companies and Sentai want this to be bigger than just a quick sub only release or we would've seen a release by now, especially when they're about to re-launch the series again after all these years. Although I wouldn't be surprised if they don't dub it, so many episodes and its dialog heavy from the little I've seen/remember.

                            Based off of some clues on RS' twitter, it looks like domestic releases of Gundam Unicorn and 00 are coming. I'm sure we'll have more info once the PRs are released.

                            Clue 1: Image of "The Lady and the Unicorn"
                            Clue 2: Text that says "I AM GUNDAM"

                            FWIW, a new JP BD set will be released on Feb 23rd for 00 for it's 10th anniversary, so I wouldn't expect anything here for that right away.

                              Continuing on the Gundam train, a third clue appeared on RS' twitter and it looks like this one is for Gundam AGE (big letter X over Rounders movie poster; ie the X-Rounders from AGE).
