Your Top 5 Most Wanted UK Anime Licenses? 2014 Edition!


Vampire Ninja
Welcome back to another most wanted UK anime license poll, two of top 3 got licensed last year (Bakemonogatari, Fate/Zero), so I'm happy to continue doing this on a yearly basis.

Again for any new members - pick and list five anime (TV, OVA or Movie) that haven't been licensed in the UK yet, if your unsure that one of your picks has or hasn't been licensed, then follow these links to check:


Only the top 5 choices count.

Pick English titles if you can.

If you want an example of how this is done, check out last years edition: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16960

POLL WILL END - 28th Feb 2014

With that out of the way, I'll start:

Giant Killing
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Eccentric Family
Flowers Of Evil


Natsuiro Kiseki - Still unlicensed outside Japan, I think?
Non Non Biyori
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha - Two episodes in but I have no doubt the rest of the series will be good


Death Scythe
Bunny Drop
Valvrave The Liberator
Garden Of The Sinners
Daily Lives of High School Boys

My brother would like to see:
Tamako Market

Will have a ponder about the last licenses...


Thousand Master
Well a grand total of 1 of my 5 from last year got licensed, but my list has changed somewhat anyway (note to any anime licensor who happens to read this: I still want YuruYuri/Kokoro Connect, guys!).

Non Non Biyori
Saki (+ Achiga/zenkoku)
Chuunibyou (+S2)
Haganai (+ S2)
Date A Live (+ S2 when it comes out (need it for streaming too, PLEASE!))

Natsuiro Kiseki - Still unlicensed outside Japan, I think?
It wasn't even licensed for streaming anywhere outside of Japan, although Daisuki included it in the poll they ran back when they first started.


Monsieur Monster
AUKN Staff
A Certain Magical Index / A Certain Scientific Railgun
Bunny Drop
Kokoro Connect
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions
Silver Spoon


Adventuring Alchemist
AUKN Staff
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions
Pet Girl of Sakurasou
Valvrave The Liberator
Blast of Tempest
Kokoro Connect


AUKN Staff
This is so hard.. urgh, okay..

Natsume's Book Of Friends
Steins Gate: The Movie.
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Daily Lives of High School Boys
Nekomonogatari: Kuro / Monogatari Series: Second Season


Pokémon Master
Most of the stuff I want has actually been licensed for once. Having said that, here we go:

1. Blast of Tempest
2. Silver Spoon (Since they're licensed by AniplexUSA, both of these are in the same situation. I want a UK distributor to get these so that I can actually afford to own them on Blu-ray...)
3. El-Hazard The Magnificent World (This is getting the BD treatment in Japan with the dub, would love a UK release.)
4. Flowers of Evil
5. Now and Then, Here and There (Because this series deserves to be seen by as many people as possible.)


1. Cardcaptor Sakura
2. Neon Genesis Evangelion (Yes I know Gainx isn't letting anyone have it, but still)
3. Wolf's Rain
4. Natsume's Book of Friends
5. Garden of Sinners (People keep requesting Aniplex dub this, that and a UK release would be great)


Pokémon Master
1-Garden of Sinners
2-Flowers of Evil
3-The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (relicense)
4-Hajime no Ippo (any series)
5-Rurouni Kenshin (re-license)


Za Warudo
I'm going to cheat slightly and have two lists.

Title's I'd like to see get a UK release:
- JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
- Toradora
- Seitokai Yakuindomo
- Kimi ni Todoke (I imagine this is highly unlikely)

Titles I would like to see get a UK release despite the fact I own the US/JP releases are:
- Garden of Sinners
- Index/Railgun
- Binbougami ga!
- Ano Hana
- Accel World (BD)

st_owly (witch)

In no particular order:

Flowers of Evil
Silver Spoon

Close runners up: Kimi ni Todoke, Toradora, Natsume's Book of Friends.

2 of 5 from my last year's picks got licensed; Bake/Nisemonogatari, and I think Kids on the Slope counts as shojo. @bakumatsu - I think Manga still have the license to Disappearance. I see it in HMV all the time.
1. Kill La Kill on physical format

2. GiTS Arise

3. Steins Gate The Movie

4. Giant Robo

5. Wicked City, Monster City or Doomed Megalopolis (one of them for nostalgias sake)
