Yeah the steelbooks are overpriced.
I wonder if perhaps companies haven't wised up to the fact they sell steelbooks relatively cheaply but once they go OOP the values skyrocket. This is your fault, collectors who pay like five times the original RRP for an OOP steelbook...

Kinda sad Deca-dence didn't have a CE of some kind. It was one of my favourite series last year and has the potential to have had some tat for its release.

the first wave of the battle of hoping Iruma getting a blu-ray release is over i guess

now the second wave begins in hoping AL or MVM get it over here

now we just need to wait for Gabbu and Jashin to get blu-ray releases

No the department of justice is still investigating if it breaches monopoly rules
It'll be curious to see what their decision is. At the very least I know when I think of the major anime streaming services, the big players I think of are Crunchyroll and Funimation. So when put together, what other major competition do they even have?

The problem is if they're just looking at it broadly then you have the likes of Netflix, Amazon, Hulu etc who all have anime. And just big platforms like those having some anime might be enough to prove there is competition (no matter how unrealistic that is to those of us who understand how these things work)

That's what I'm worried about. There's a clear difference between a streaming service that has an anime section and a dedicated anime streaming service that already tend to have a lot of the big names of each anime season on their platform.

Sentai FILMWORKS has licenced Wit Studio's Vinland Saga.
Not a surprise considering they managed to license all of the Twin Engine titles that were streaming on Amazon Prime, so that's now all of them sorted.

However, what's interesting is that unlike the other titles, this one doesn't specify any territories. So it wouldn't surprise me if AL has acquired it.

Sentai FILMWORKS has licenced Wit Studio's Vinland Saga.
I really do hope they get some European sounding VAs for the dub. I don't know what would be weirder the Japanese dub (it was weird enough watching the simulcast, especially the scene where an English lady was trying to speak to Thorfinn who only spoke Norse, but both were speaking in Japanese!) or American sounding Vikings!
