Sending a C&D doesn't mean it's licensed.

We (AnimeSuki) may well remove the torrents of the particular series but that's not because it has been licensed. In the past we have removed a number of series due to similar C&D requests (i.e. MFI, Kadokawa).
probably means its perhaps getting closed to be licensed

That's an awful lot of conditional statements! "It's probably perhaps getting close..." Sounds about right... no matter what happens!

there is actually however, the only availability of the manga that is scanlated so far is volume: 1,2 and 3(chapter 11-15), and volume 4 (Chapter 16) and volume 9: Chapter 38 and 40, and recently volume 10: chapter 42. As you can see, there are some gaps in between the volumes that were not scanlated, quite unfortunate.

While browsing Rightstuf for figures, I spotted a Seto no Hanayome figure (Seto San) will be available next year (allegedly January 30th). Though "pricy" (about $90 US), it offers her in a sitting position; she's in her human form with school uniform, or can be configured (with costume change) in her mermaid form.

If popular enough, I suppose other related figures could be made available (though I've seen no promises or previews suggesting that's the case).

Though I'd be prefering more "cheesecake" [i.e., the other mermaids and Mawari--or should I say, "fishcake" ?] , I can easily imagine Masa would be one of the next releases, given his general popularity. If so, it will be interesting, if only because it's been a while since a "GAR-ish" character has been done as a figurine.

Ah, I hope they make S2 too.. They barely covered the manga and have tons of materials left. S1 was really good and popular so there is still some hope for S2!

Looks like Funimation got the license. Details are here:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...d-comedy-anime

I really kind of expected ADV to be the licenser (once their licensing troubles cleared up) because they had (A) "tried" to do Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch at one time, and (B) they had a mermaid-themed sample DVD a few years back in the American Newtype magazine.

Still, Funi should do fine (as long as they work out all those darn DVD encoding problems that stall the programs mid-play).

Funi's had it for 3 months, I just wondered why they took so long, and with Gonzo pretty much getting out of the biz, how does that affect this and future shows.

The OVAs better be on there too, otherwise . Still very very happy about this as this really was one of the funnier shows I've seen.

Without insider information on Funi, I'd guess several reasons:

1. They had to clean up the legal issues with episode 17. [Recall there were some alledged copyright infringements at the time it aired in Japan.]

2. Funi just laid out a whole bunch of cash rescuing many of the Geneon and ADV titles. Much as we might think corporations are made of money, much of it is already committed to one project or another. Hence, with a big lump purchace of properties from other companies, Funi probably had to "rob Peter to pay Paul" somewhere--e.g., delaying "new" acquisitions in favor of the rescues.

3. They may have wanted to know when they were going to release the series before making the official announcement. [Admittedly, this hasn't always been the case with some series.]

Again without insider information, it may be that this is why we got the OVAs instead of a second season: Gonzo already knew it would be scaling back production.

Mind, there are other animation studios, and Gonzo was partnered with AIG. I've even seen some series change the look of the art when going from season 1 to season 2. So, I'd say if there's money to be made (and enough story), more OVAs or a second season aren't impossible.

[For that matter--why not a movie? Though from what I know of the story from the manga, I still think OVAs are more likely.]

great to see this fun series liscenced, I'm hoping another studio picks this up for a second season, because it has a lot more charm than stuff like nagasate airantou, and overall its a great relaxing anime that is blast to watch.

I'm glad it's licensed. This is one of the rare series I've found worth buying...

Now if only someone would license the manga, because the official release would probably quicker than the scanlations are...

Either I'm the only one who didn't like this show upon seeing it or the people who didn't like it are just staying hush...

But anyway, I first watched this show some time back and found that it was too over the top and not funny at all, but then again, there are other anime I didn't enjoy at first as well but gave second chances to and ended up loving (Toradora being an excellent example) so I thought I'd give this another shot. Unfortunately, as with my last attempt the show made my brain hurt. It was just painful.

I guess the thing that killed the show for me was the absolutely unbelievable setup and the constant facial exaggerations. It's not that I don't enjoy humor and funny anime faces, hell, I love anime that can make me laugh as much as anyone.. but you gotta keep things balanced.

agree
for a comedy themed anime i only laughed about 3 or 4 times in total and chuckled a few, and comedy is my favourite genre
oh well, its an avg anime and i would watch a second season if one came out

your entitled to your opinion but if you were expecting toradora in seto no hanayome then you are expecting the wrong thing. Although the first couple of episodes seem more drama oriented in the end its a comedy show where as toradora is a drama show disguised with the premise of comedy. Just look at kitamura angst scenes... quivers at the drama. Personally I though the over top ness is what made it great, instead of the reserved comedy some of the best scenes in this show are those hilarious misunderstandings, but then again its taste, but really the drama in toradora is probably as thick as s1 clannad.
