In the dealer's room at Anime Boston, Funimation was playing the Kodocha OP and music videos of it over and over and never stopped.

They were really enthusiastic, but it gave me a headache.

I agree somewhat.

Personally I think it was stupid of FUNI to announce it now. Why couldn't they have announced it late this year or early next year?

I don't like the idea of someone announcing a license and saying "it'll be released a year from now."

I don't think Funimation was taking fansubbing into consideration when they decided when to announce their license.

A year or six months, why does it matter when they announce the license? Kodocha has been out for years and if you haven't downloaded it yet, tough luck. You had your chance.

Not just talking about fansubbing. If they announced it later this year or early next then people would be much more excited because it was coming soon.

It's hard to get excited for Kodocha on DVD because we have to wait a whole freaking year for it. People are excited that it's licensed, but if was announced later this year or early next people would be be excited that it was licensed AND that it would be coming soon.

I think it matters a lot when something gets announced, and not for fansub reasons. I would like announcements for licensing to be closer to the release dates. Like I said before the idea of an announcement saying "we'll release this a year from now" is dumb, IMO.

Edit For example, Geneon announced Uchuu no Stellvia as licensed today, and the first disc is coming in September. I like that.

Better to announce that they have it now, so people will be able to save up for the release date, than to wait until a month before and have people still be in doubt.

Even at 3-4 eps a disc, the price will still be fairly cheap (as per funimation, this is something NO ONE ever takes into account), and on a 6-week release cycle between discs... I'm certinaly not complaining.

Also, that thing about One Piece, it was an editorial mistake, however this was an official announcement. Sure, the license MAY get yanked at any point, but for now it's signs of clear sailing ahead.

THANK YOU FUNIMATION

Gosh, the post-license whining began at post #6.



This is freakin' Kodocha! And it's getting released! Be happy!

They already licensed it and announcd that it will be available one year from now? Yes it's true but I will be watching my bootlegs first since I got all episodes on HK DVDs, until they get to the release of the final episode.

If they released 6 episodes on each DVD, it would be 17 DVDs long, and 8 episodes on each DVD would be 13 DVDs. 6 weeks between each would be like 2 whole years for the final episode if it was 6 on each DVD and 1 year and 4 months for the 8 episodes on each DVD.

It's a laugh that people will have to wait at least a year for the first DVD to come out and then almost two years more just to see the end. I think I will go watch the bootlegs now and avoid the long wait, if you know what I mean. I will have better things to do than worry about the ending, or find better anime to watch soon.

The manga recently finished its run in the US, so the ending won't be a surprise to a lot of Sana fans. However, who knows how much they changed in the adaptation? That's where the fun is, I say. Sana is a lot more hyper in the anime... and the white bat... and the songs... lots of good stuff in the anime.

Totally ready to wait 3 years to see the end.

Thank you for supporting the bootleg industry...
Anyways... I'm really curious as to what the hammers they handed out at the con looked like. Can anyone who was there post a pic? (I'm looking at you, bay) And the singalong/hammer-along was pretty hilarious.

THANK YOU FUNIMATION
Their price is not cheap online.Funi disc price is $25 discount to $17 and bandai,MB,ADV price is $30 discount to $17.Their price is not cheap.

Their 6-week release already have problem.Kiddy Grade #2 have sound probelm if you didn't know.ADV even release more content at a 6 week rate but funi have to lower the content to release the dvd faster.

Not saying funi is the wrost but I think they can do better.They are the company that release DBZ and suck alot of money out of the fan you know.

FUNimation is making a lot of good decisions lately...
i've decided to call off my kappa attack on FUNi headquarters...due to them:
1) licensing series that don't suck
2) Not editing them to crap and forcing us to buy what's left
i also think it was a smart decision to release the anime after the manga has been released. the Fruits Basket anime was released stateside before the manga...IMO if it had followed the manga, FUNi's sales would have perked up a bit

Damn, between Kodocha and Urusei Yatsura I'm going to need a lot more shelf space. I hope they go with at least 5 episodes per disc, but I'd buy it at 4 too, this is a great series. I remember hearing Sony was asking for a ton of money for it, maybe they finally compromised. It'll be years before I see the last ep of UY, so I think I can wait until '07 or '08 to see the end of Kodocha. Even though it's not starting to come out until '05, I'm glad they announced it now, something more to look forward to.

<Please don't insult others>

As for being cheap online, I've not had a problem with their releases so far, price-wise that is.

Then again, they haven't been in the Anime Distribution game as long as ADV or Bandai, and aren't just focusing on Anime either.

Perhaps a "Friend of Big Business" sticker on your car bumper would suffice?

Remember, some people just don't have that kinda cash lying around. Not saying that what they're doing is right, per se, but people have their reasons for doing the things they do. Same as anything else.

Hmm... I'm in split minds about this one... YES I'll finally get to see the series on DVD (not that the Kodocha TP fansubs were too bad, but... :P), but a whole year? I hope there's a boxset waiting for us at the end of that year. Yeah, I'd prefer for them to have annouced in 6 months time or so, the wait will be annoying...

And as for disk/episode counts. Aparently Funi ran a poll on their site, and people said they'd rather pay less price for 3eps/disk than more price for 6 eps/disk
Hopefully they'll wake up for Kodocha, 3eps/disk with a series that long isn't even funny.

Not yay. It might get the Dragonball Z and GT treatment. You know, Bad voices, crappy music, episode edits by the truckload, etc.

But if it does get the Fruits Basket treatment, it will take about 6 to 10 years to finish dubbing and releasing the whole series on DVD. (That's if they don't have the Japanese version with subtitles.)

EDIT: Corrected spelling errors.
