I don't know too much about the going ons regarding licenses and potential licenses, however from lurking, I've noticed that alot of you are quite knowledgeable in that area, so i was wondering, what do you think the chances are of The World Only God Only Knows being one of these? I read it was acquired in the US but the company that licensed it meant the chances of us getting the title were slim to none?
Sorry to go a little off subject.

Sentai licensed it in the US.

Sentai used to be known as ADV and had their own UK distro. I wouldn't say it's "slim to none", because Highschool of the Dead was also licensed by Manga UK, and that's a sentai title.


Ah, i see. Its good to know that there's a more possibility of the title being bought to the UK then i originally thought, thank you :) and thanks to Rui too :)

Hmm...interesting *strokes imaginary beard*

I too hope for Squid Girl. I haven't imported the R1 sets due to the horror stories with Media Blasters terrible cases. I would have said "More Shana!" until I saw that they had an actual release month.

No friggen clue. I believe Funi licensed it a while ago and hasn't been dubbed yet.

Shakugan no Shana II, Shakugan no Shana: The Movie and Shakugan no Shana S were all licensed by FUNimation and were originally slated to be out by the end of this year. However, due to some internal problems at Geneon, last I heard, FUNimation haven't even been given the materials to begin dubbing.

I just hope that when they do get them, they send them up to Ocean Studios - I want as much of the old voice cast to return as possible.

It's none of the titles mentioned, not old and not subbed - 2010 onwards.

Ooh, I love it when there are hints! I assume not subbed means "not sub-only", otherwise there's likely to be a very limited pool of guesses...:)

So it's fairly recent then? I'm looking forward to the announcement even more now that there's a possibility it's something I've considered importing. I'd much rather give my money to uk companies anyway.

Could be Queen's Blade. Aired in 2009 but wasn't released in the US until last year. Also, boobs = £££.

Canaan seems like the kind of show MVM would release--but it's another 2009 show. Can't think of much else the licenses could be!
