If no one announces Raildex or anything to do with the last Madoka movie, I'll have to cry in a corner.

EDIT: Ikki Tousen seasons 3-4 Source

Wow Ikki Tousen GG and XX, this is going to amuse the BBFC a lot.
Well I don't think they have an issue with topless girls beating each other up, it's always been the ones that look underage that cause cuts, should we expect a lot of that in GG and XX?

Well Great Guardians has Battle Tour Club Sexy Cosplays, Dangerous Jobs Episodes 1-6 which I'm guessing is similar to the OVA episodes of DD. I honestly haven't watched Ikki Tousen so I can't really comment on the content.

My thoughts so far on the licenses (will be updated as it goes along):
- Since there's no BD in Australia for Hakuoki (S1 and 2), IS and Night Raid, the UK version will be DVD only. Sentai's is A-locked but can be bypassed (plus IS has some CDs so I'll pick that version).
- As BTOOOM!, Dusk Maiden of Amnesia and Girls und Panzer are already B compatible from Sentai's, the AU version will just import the discs (and the CDs for DMoA's case). These will be DVD only here most likely.
- Ikki Tousen is only on DVD (XX has a BD version but Funi will probably release it only on DVD) so no comments here.
- It's possible for Hakuoki Season 3 to get a BD release here but I'm gonna pass on the series.

I assume we've had nothing from Manga and Anime Ltd because they are scheduled to announce later in the day?
Yup, that's right. They're both part of the Industry Panel at 15:30 (I think?) ..for some reason, MVM aren't.

Probably would prefer to get Night Raid on Blurau (which I doubt MVM will do) but GuP is barely worth owning on DVD, so I can settle for that much.

3 slots left it seems. I wonder if they'll count Railgun and Index as a single slot?

Come on, someone needs to announce it.

I certainly wouldn't mind seeing them released here, but eh. Part of me would rather have the index novels(since we already have the railgun manga). I know it won't happen, but i can hope.

I can see why a company would be hesitant (to put it lightly) about the Index novels though - there are over 25 of them.

It's ongoing as well. So there is a lot they'd have to cover, plus keep up with. Though saying that i do have one thing i'm curious about. Has YenPress stopped translation Spice & Wolf half way through the series?

Hehe GT and not Dragon Ball LOL.

(ahem)

Nice to see some Manga UK announcements, I wonder how many they have but more importantly I hope there's details regarding K and Future Diary.
