I did that when it was first announced, try paying attention.

Josh: hah, I don't even think it's worth licensing tbh, it has niche appeal regardless of how high quality I think it is.
 
This av confusion makes it look like one poster with multiple personality disorder!

We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses. Wicked, tricksy, false!
No. Not master!
Yes, precious, false! They will cheat you, hurt you, LIE.
Master is our friend!
You don't have any friends; nobody likes you!
I'm not listening... I'm not listening...
You're a liar and a thief.
No!
*Murderer*.

Sentai Filmworks has announced the license of And Yet The Town Moves, also known as Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru. It will be released subtitled digitally this winter, and on DVD (sub only) in January.
How likely is it that this show has a chance of getting released in Yurop or the UK?

At least now I know which characters are in the film. Kinda disappointed to see no Brotherhood-only characters. Guess they wanted to keep it neutral for both series'...also, shame about the way Al's eyes are animated in the movie >>

Only a little bit. :lol:

Okarin and Miyano well deserved their awards though, one of the great modern character/seiyuu combos.
Also, Aoi Yuki voices Iris in Pokémon Best Wishes, and Mamoru Miyano voices Cilan - both of Ash's travelling partners xD

But yeah, Okarin and Miyano deserved their awards the most.

With the greatest of respect for Pokemon, I'm not convinced that that's what put either of them over line for the award. :p
Yeah xD

It was Madoka and Steins;Gate. It's still funny how the Best Actor and Best Actress are both Ash's travelling buddies though.
