    We've received the list of available street dates for next year from our distributor. In the next couple weeks we will start picking the dates for the unreleased titles we have licensed. When the dates are picked they will be listed here. Also there should be some very big licensing announcements in the coming weeks.

      I'm looking forward to it; I'm curious to see what Discotek has in store.

        Same here. I'm not sure what qualifies as "very big" announcements" (LoGH license would definitely be one, but I don't think that's it), but I'm definitely curious the possibility of multiple licenses.

          That's always very hard for me to gauge, too; I can think of titles that would definitely constitute "very big" license announcements in a fairly objective sense (like a license of Macross: Do You Remember Love or LoGH), but those are all virtually impossible to license (which is part of why they'd be such a big deal in the first place). Anything else would be more subjective; I know of titles that would be a big deal to me, but that's not the same as Discotek considering them "big".

            Discotek is probably the only company that can say stuff like that and honestly have me be really excited and anxious right now. I can't to find out what other licenses are going their way.
            Come Visit The Land of Obscusion... Maybe you missed a title the first time around.

              People were making some guesses about new licenses on Discotek's Facebook page, and after a whole bunch of guesses by various people, including...

              more Lupin
              Legend of Galactic Heroes
              Phoenix movies
              Patlabor OVA/TV
              Space Adventure Cobra TV
              various Saint Seiya series
              Ashita no Joe
              Maison Ikkoku
              Lensman
              Kimagure Orange Road
              Urusei Yatsura
              Heavy Metal L-Gaim
              Giant Gorg
              Ashita no Nadja
              Ringing Bell

              Discotek posted and commented "No ones guessed the next new license yet", so there's some titles that can be ruled out. However, they did add this: "There will be more Lupin but thats not in the next batch of announcements. We're going to try and release as much Lupin as possible in the future."

                No surprises here (not the part that it won't be announced next). I do hope that the second TV series would be next. Anything unlicensed before will be good too.

                  Looks like the most recent announcement wasn't even anime at all. Discotek picked up the live-action Yatterman film.

                    Did Lilly C.A.T. ever receive a hybrid DVD release? There's one I'd love to see Discotek announce.

                      They never said it was going to be anime licenses. They didn't say this license was part of the "very big" licenses either. In any case, the existing discussion thread for the LA Yatterman film can be found here: LINK.

                        From the looks of it, just VHS release.

                            I don't think this company is going to do BDs on a more frequent basis for at least another year, judging by their comments on how hard it is for them to do BDs.

                            In that case, I'd prefer they stick to older releases because I'm better able to accept them on DVD, but I can understand the allure of releasing a new one every once in a while to keep the bills paid.

                              - When will next month's updates begin? This wait is causing me to spin. How many months will this update cover again?

                              - hopefully we will have some news in mid october. we have to get the front covers ready and get them all approved first. then the dates will be set. it will probably cover a few months.

                                Lotta good shows in that list, but this is what I really want for christmas!
                                I think Asimov wrote the manual to my microwave. It's 600 pages long, but I've read it twice and lent it to three of my friends.
