Maria-sama licensed by RightStuf / Nozomi Entertainment

Update: The first three seasons of Maria-sama ga Miteru have now been licensed by RightStuf / Nozomi Entertainment. 6th March 2008.


It appears that Geneon has registered the following domain name

Mariasamadvd.com (Maria-sama ga Miteru)

Since we haven't seen any official announcement, then AnimeSuki will consider the title as unlicensed at this point in time. For now, this thread can be used to discuss aspects of the rumoured license. It is also unclear just how much of the series they might be considering to license, they might see how the sales go with the first series before committing to the second and third series.

I though Geneon always had the license the only question was whether it would ever made to the US market.

Hm.. Looks promising. I was thinking about starting to buy the 1st and 2nd season.

I just hope they don't license and then sit on it like forever. I also hope that they include the Naisho, too.

Maybe Tokyopop Germany will license the Anime too if it gets released in the US. :3

Well this is exciting news. I hope this turns out to be true. Geneon is holding a contest right now over on ANN to guess their next license. I can't say the clues they've given out so far fit Marimite well, but you never know.

So, do we start guessing on English casting yet? Debate whether Geneon will keep 'Onee-sama' and 'Gokigenyo' in the script? Will there be a deluxe set and what might be in it? The mind boggles at the endless possibilities!

I feel like I've been waiting years to see something say "Maria-sama ga Miteru licensed". This makes me very happy if they do decide to license it. And like most people feel I just hope they don't sit on the title for too long.

Dear Geneon,
Please, take more of my money. Here, it's yours, my credit card number is blah.blah.blah.blah. Just subtitle things nicely and include all the extras.
That's all I ask.


Seriously, fingers crossed on this one.

If I could get subtitles, I would buy this in a heartbeat. License away.

Huh...

Apparently it's going to be released as a complete box set, with subs only. Makes sense I guess (not exactly going to be a huge seller), but it's still kinda suprising. And it's coming out real soon.

Maybe not...

From AnimeonDVD.com:

Geneon Denies License Rumors (12:02 PM EDT): According to information received from Geneon Entertainment, the information that Diamond Distribution has posted is incorrect. These were titles from an old plan that Geneon was working to acquire. They are in the process of contacting Diamond to have that erroneous information removed.

I hope that while the rumor of an American release for Marimite is not a rumor, that the Diamond webpage is a mistake (and not just a premature leak). While I know there is a very dedicated following for this series, a $100US, sub only release for a niche series like this that was only 13 episodes to begin with, is likely to restrict any sales to just that hardcore Marimite crowd.

I'd rather see a release more likely to appeal to a broader market segment at a slightly better price (subbed and dubbed, with a $80-90US list price. More in line with the Haibane-Renmei box set, for example), so that it would be more likely generate the sort of sales that would encourage them to release the second and third seasons, too.

Honestly I have issue with Diamond Videovault synopsis for Marimite. It read to me like some very cheese yuri.

Shoot, with Geneon going bust, Marimite being licensed seems more and more a distant future. I shouldn't have waited for Geneon USA and bought R2. My 'first press buy queue' is too long for me to buy any Marimite DVDs at the moment.... (R2 are really expensive).

Wow! Cool!

I look forward to buying original series and OVA of Maria-sama.. n_n

Now, that it's getting licensed, I believe this Maria-sama forum may be erased..
As what's in AnimeSuki are all but unlicensed anime..

The only thing lonely about it is.. I may not see anymore of Maria-sama discussions.

Uhh... read the posts above you. The only way you're going to get marimite DVDs is by buying the R2s from Japan.

Right now the odds of it getting licensed here are slim to none, unfortunately. With Geneon the rights-holder being out of the US picture now, well, I wouldn't be holding my breath. Might be more productive to just learn Japanese.

It's really unfortunate. I was happy when Geneon and got the domain name and all---but now with their downfall it seems like getting an R1 release if going to be tough.

Its so sad that Geneon has to be going under when they have the chance to bring this great anime to R1, be that just subbed or a sub/dub. I mean, this show does have a fairly good following from what I've seen, and I know I'd get the complete set. I can't believe Geneon is just going to give up, if ADV can't do it, I know Funimation or Viz Media would try. We all know that Funimation wants a larger chunk of the pie, though Viz does really like only doing larger series like Inu-Yasha and Bleach so I don't if they put much into it.

Yeah I feel like our only hope is ADV and well...let's just say I'd be much happier if Geneon would do it. But I wonder if ADV(or any other company for that matter) has any plans of picking it up?
