I'm guessing Love Live Sunshine and Sound Euphonium (maybe Anonymous Noise?) could be part of Lights, Camera, Action.

Probably some SAO and Twin Star Exorcists in the other.

Grimgar I reckon for the Swords and Spectres box.

Maybe worth splitting into another thread for predictions to avoid creating too many notifications for those who follow this thread?

I actually thought about making a new thread dedicated to the Summer sale but I don't think it'll be as big as the Christmas one to warrant its own (it feels more like the Easter sale but with Early Birds added to the mix).

Is there any chance of one of the early birds being a licence they acquired/reacquired but didn't announce? I guess what I'm saying is: could it be the Big O from the Beez days?

Pipe dream?

Finally, a mention of s-CRY-ed! Still got my DVDs from Beez.
Hopefully they release it on Blu-ray. Trying to remember if it has a HD Remaster or is it a SD Blu-ray release
I mention it because Discotek rescued the series after Sentai never released it from their Sunrise 2013 package deal. It's a HD remaster with 3 Blu-ray discs for the series and 1 additional Blu-ray disc dedicated to bonus features. Discotek said the films are a separate license so they aren't included.

The Eccentric Family is on my top 10 greatest anime of all time list. I love that show so much.

I live in the eternal hope of the second season getting a physical release.
Ah goodness, I live the same hope but is it at all likely? Had assumed season 1 would do well enough to warrant the next one being released but clearly not...

NISA released S1 in the US, and subsequently stopped releasing anime. No one else has picked up S2, which leaves MVM in a bind.
I see, excuse my ignorance but am I then correct in assuming that MVM are dependent on other international distributors, with whom they have links, picking up titles rather than directly licensing them the way Anime Limited do?

Pretty much. They rely on Aniplex of America for Fate & Monogatari, Sentai for many of the titles and maybe Madman on collector's packages if one fits their catalogue.

They very rarely author their own discs and they did it for Kizumonogatari Trilogy, Monogatari sets (Koyomi, Owari 3 & Zoku Owari), Anohana and Yuuna because there was no other option available.

Regarding The Eccentric Family 2, I believe Crunchyroll also has the rights to that as well.
