The Devil is a Part-Timer! Complete Series (Blu-ray)
Interesting that Siren Visual lost the rights. Then again, Siren Visual is pretty much dead.

When Siren Visual released the BD back when they had the rights, did they use Funimation's masters, use Manga's masters (even though Manga released their release a month later), or create their own from scratch?

And I'm guessing the future for Sailor Moon Sailor Stars Part 2 remains uncertain.

EDIT: I completely forgot about DanMachi Season 1's listing. In fact, I even forgot that it was released before by Hanabee (I found out through Grav's Twitter through a retweet).

Siren used the Funimation masters. It makes sense they would re-release it because Siren's release was sublicensed, so having Funi release it directly makes more sense.

As for Danmachi, it's less of a surprise to me since Madman added the series on AnimeLab and released the film here.

It's kinda typical that a few months after I bite on the JP BD that we finally hear about a western BD.

atleast I bought the S2 JP BD so I could get Discotek's S1

Just Fairly Gone for me from that lot.

Requiem for the Phantom is in my Top 5; I frankensteined the Blu-rays from the standard release into the original DVD art box. Michiko and Hatchin is another good one, I own the LE box sets for that and Heroic Age.

At this point, I think I've waited long enough for Sailor Stars Part 2, and just going to go for the Viz release while I still have the chance (seeing as Viz lost the license in the US and Europe, with other distributors (not owned by Viz) losing the license too). It may be inconsistent with my Madman sets, but at least I can have the entire series in some form.
