So, should this thread be moved to the Licensed board now?

<3 Gonzo. I'm glad I'll be able to watch this, the English site makes it sound really good. I've been reading a lot of good SF novels lately (not the weak stuck-in-the-80's mainstream stuff), Robert Reed and Ian McDonald and stuff like that. The anime's source novel seems to be really well in that tradition. A true literary and cutting edge hard SF novel, with carbon markets and nanotech and memetic manipulation and all that.

Saki looks like a nice and moe show, but I'm not sure it'll be able to hold up to this.

Actually, no. Since the series is still unaired then it remains in the Unaired forum. Once it is aired (on April 5th I believe) then it will be moved to the Licensed forum. Best remind me again around that time and send me a PM

I guess this means Funi has licensed this?

It's hard to tell whether it's all their future shows or just the ones they consider to be potential "hits," but at the very least I think this means they officially now have first dibs on Gonzo series.

I think it's pretty likely though with all the Gonzo shows that Funimation has done recently and they even license rescued Gonzo's big previous titles like Vandread and the one that has big ties to this Last Exile which they've already announced re-releases for.

My favorite part of that press release was that they explicity mention real releases (DVD/BD style releases) with dubs in the press release in addition to online because one of the most uncertain parts of the recent web-broadcasts for me has been that I still want to be able to own my favorite shows on BD or DVD with both subs and dubs (I like both and it depends who I'm watching with sometimes) and we've not heard a peep about DVD releases for shows that got web broadcasted that I really want to own with real releases like Shikabane Hime and Blassreiter and Sky Girls even if I watch them online on Hulu or whatever. I still want my DVDs and Blu-rays.

I am not too sure if this series is meant for general audience so I kinda skeptical if it can sell in US market.

It was already considered licensed.

License Database > Shangri-La

ANN report, Crunchyroll Adds Shangri-La, 2 La Corda D'Oro Anime

Judging from what we know of the setting to the visuals and the setup of the show and it's plot, and these types of shows from Gonzo, I think it will definitely be aimed at the main Science Fiction anime audience so I think it can certainly sell in the US.

? How is it too bad? Since it'll be on CR that means that you can watch if for free AND support the creators, they don't live off of good comments alone!

Anyway, does anyone know if any subbed commercials have come out? I can't remember seeing any and I want to see more of this anime...

Nada.

That by itself is not a good sign since Saki and Slap Up have raw vids in circulation.

It's weird how Shangri-la has an English page, but Saki doesn't, even though they'll both be airing in the same way and on the same English website.

I guess Gonzo doesn't predict the moe anime, or Chinese tilegame anime, will be as popular as the science fiction anime.

its more directed at the different audience perceiving the shows, Saki is more otaku orientated, for example if you read ANN write up on TAF summary you know Saki was the most hype show at their booth. While Shangri-la has an international appeal or at the very least seeking it.

Only a single poster of Shangri-la hung and that was the fanservice pose. They hyped Druaga, Strike Witches and Saki at the booth from the ANN video. Saki and Slap Up have 2 promo vids out. Shangri-la has none. They prob already know that Shangri-la won't do well in Japan. Shangri-la's only hope is that the Western audiences make up for the Japanese loss.

*just an opinion*

Shangri-La is the one getting the full first episode premiere in a theater with special guests event though, so I don't know maybe it's easier to show something like Saki at TAF than something potentially more involved and the difference in the type of shows these are.

I agree with the above as to why there's an english page for Shangri-La already, if it turns out to be good it's got a lot of potential international appeal.

I doubt so since troubled GONZO wants to make $$$$ fast and lots of them. I have a feeling that the panty shots will be liberal to get otakus hook on the series and later on purchase the DVD in frenzy like Strike Witches LE vol 1.

It is easy and surefire way to get otakus to watch it.
