Claymore licensed by Funimation

License for the first season of Claymore announced on their company website. Article concerning the license also on ANN, Funimation Licenses Claymore Anime Series.

Feel free to discuss the topic in this thread. And as usual, any discussion about where to download Claymore fansubs no longer allowed as of now.

I'm slightly surprised that FUNimation managed to secure the licensing for Claymore first.

I was expecting that ADV films would get it, since after all ADV has licensed quite a number of terror and/or violent anime series like were the case of Elfen Lied and Mamono Hunter Yohko among others in the past.
However, due to the recent setback that ADV is experiencing right now is quite understandable.

Ok. FUNi has acquired the license, hence, there would be a possibility that maybe or not Claymore gets to air in Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block in a future.

It remained unlicensed for about 4 1/2 months after the last episode was broadcasted in Japan, and before the licensing was announced today.

I, for one, expected FUNimation to get this because it's a Shounen Jump title, and Viz doesn't seem to want first dibs.

In before 'they're gonna ruin it zomg noes now i cnat dl it!!1'

Not really surprising for FUNimation to get it, if you think about it... they've always been heavily shounen-oriented.

me thinks Viz didn't like the sour feedback on how the series ended to want it.

I wonder if we can start a campaign to have Funimation replace the last several eps with a manga based storyline. Its not like making anime is expensive.
I actually tried sending a message regarding that on their Contact Us page, but it kept erroring out.

Regarding where it airs: I think I'd be fine as long as they don't try to water it down. The blood and and arms getting chopped off are part of Claymore's dark world. Not that I really watch anything on tv. I watch stuff on tv channel sites and iTunes and stuff, or just buy DVDs(which for Claymore won't be for quite a while I suppose)

Uh, the manga was licensed by Viz a long while ago before the anime started airing.

I doubt ADV would license it, not given the way they've been heading, same with Viz. Viz have halted alot of their anime projects aswell to focus on their big earners.

This could actually be a good chance for companies like FUNimation to pick up some good titles and begin to really rival the larger companies.

Not likly. Only two times I know of that an anime had new episodes made for the US release, and that was Voltron and Ultamate Muscle. Both of them got a tv broadcast release. Claymore probably won't make enough to warrent the cost.
