Zero no Tsukaima Licensing Discussion

Geneon has announced the license for Zero no Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero) at Anime Boston 2007.
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/conv...anime-boston/2

As they claim it's a 13 episodes series, it would seem the license doesn't include the second season (due this fall). The license was previously hinted at by an accidental Diamond Distribution listing. While Geneon denied the accuracy of that listing, the fact that it did turn out to be true gives Maria-sama fans hope (Maria-sama ga Miteru was also listed in the same way).

As this series is a "MFI" series torrents were never listed on AnimeSuki, nor was it allowed to list download links in forum threads. This obviously continues now the series has been licensed.




MOD EDIT: The discussion for Sentai Filmworks licensing of Zero no Tsukaima f starts here.

I can only wonder who they're going to choose to do the voices.

Does the DVD version contain any different material than the version that aired on TV?

No info yet. Check out AnimeOnDVD,either their forums or Upcoming Releases.

They might have some news if you search their forum. Familiar of Zero (aka Zero no Tsukaima) was listed in Diamond's Previews recently but it appears it was a mistake.

It doesn't look like we'll be seeing Zero no Tsukaima in North America for a while yet.
Geneon seems to have went under.

According to IGN, Geneon has "left the anime market" putting Zero no Tsukaima out of it's license, and up for grabs to any other company.

I don't know if it's true or not. Can it be?

Fans of the original series, as well as the recent follow-up season, shouldn't feel too bad about keeping their hopes up.

This has been discussed at length in its own thread, but the short answer is that Geneon stopped distributing anime (i.e. selling it to retailers/stores, who sell it to consumers), but so far they haven't stopped producing it (i.e. handing out contracts for translating, voice acting, etc.). We know that Zero no Tsukaima in particular is still being produced (as the person timing the official subtitles has posted here on AnimeSuki), but how and when it'll get distributed hasn't been announced yet.

So, it's still licensed, and it's still being worked on. That's all we know right now.

Kirche's English voice actor suits her.

Louise's voice actor is way off. It doesn't sound like a "wealthy-spoiled-brat".

Granted, its only one scene you see her in, and that scene's in the last episode of the first season anyway, so that's a poor time to judge a voice actor.

Sexy time is always a great way to judge.

Well, all you can do is wait until the series is released. One scene isn't nearly enough to see how well Cristina Valenzuela will do as Louise.

It probably won't be all that long -- they've been working on the production over these last months (which is why you have voice clips now). I wouldn't be surprised to see it before the end of the year. And I assume there would probably be more like 3 or 4 episodes per DVD, as that is more the norm for the R1 market.
