    I downloaded it last year to watch it, but then I decided to be good and wait.

    Add me to the list of people who have wanted hyouka for an age.

    Official announcement or just teasing so far!

    Funimation will be releasing Record of Lodoss War (TV & OVA) as a Blu-ray & DVD combo pack - the TV series is DVD only as there are no HD masters for it.

    I've liked and then unliked that! I thought they might have at least done their own bd upscale rather than having two formats for one collection.

    Give me Lodoss, NOW!
    It's my favorite series and I am so happy to see this after the way MB ditched it five years ago without releasing it.
    The CPM release of the TV series looked garbage (even back in the day), I'm sure even with Funimation doing DVD only it will still look tremendously better.

    Honestly, I have the biggest smile on my face.

    Lodoss has my interest.

    I've heard of Lodoss War, and I haven't found a fantasy anime from the 90s I've disliked yet so if the price is right I may end up getting it.

    I absolutely love that cover design, the dark blue and gold looks so classy and the image they chosen is perfect.

    I am also quite interested in Lodoss War. Will certainly pick that up, or a UK copy should AL decide to bring it over.

    I would more older releases to make it over here Lodoss certainly sounds interesting. I would really like Gosick over here as well Please AL

    Came so close to buying the German version of Lodoss earlier this year. This version will be mine (the TV series was only so-so anyway).

    Hyouka Part 1 due July with a Funimation dub as a combo pack.

    Yes it does seem a bit odd they'd not upscale, maybe too niche to be worth it?

    it's been such a long time since I've been able to watch the Lodoss OVA (friend used to have it on VHS) so It'll be good to pick it up at what'll hopefully be a good price.

    The July 2017 line-up from Funimation has been revealed. More info on that (is on my blog, because I'm a lazy git).

    Note that Funimation did confirm Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches for July at Anime Boston, however it never showed up on the slate.

    So, just found out Kizomonogatari Part 2 is coming out 9 May 2017. A forum search shows it was posted in the Aniplex thread but I don't think it was ever mentioned here? :(
