      No kidding; December is an insane month for me, release wise. October, on the other hand, has almost nothing (just one release I want all month); I wish the release schedule for the end of the year was a bit more balanced, but what can you do?

            Re: U.S. Anime Release Dates / Unreleased License / Forum Resource Links Thread

            For those who are interested in this sort of things. Here it is, a total of 174 licenses for 2012 (unofficial; can go up and down depending on how you count simulcast series with additional home video rights, license rescues,...).

            Sentai Filmworks has nearly 40% of the licenses. FUNimation had a little over 18% (can be higher if we know if their simulcast licenses really include home video or not). Third is Discotek Media at nearly 11%.

              Man, Discotek is simply rocking it. It looks like 2013 is going to be a very good year for them. It's hard to deny Sentai's licensing might just going by sheer numbers. The only downfall is the proportion of DVD-only subtitled releases to Blu-rays, but they seem to be supporting Blu-ray a bit more than previously. The biggest problem facing Funimation in this analysis is that they take so long to actually release their licenses. So most of the stuff they released were licensed before 2012. Then there's both NISA and RightStuf who keep a respectable amount of licenses and releases, with a good turn around time.

                Still waiting on that Madoka Movie license/solicitation, Aniplex...and I wish FUNi would stop teasing Roberta's Blood Trail and solicit it. Squid Girl would be nice too. Looking forward to more, especially Future Diary and Magi. 2013's shaping up nicely.

                  I'm actually really wondering about Aniplex's release plans for the next few months; most of their remaining licenses are a long, long way from any type of physical release, with only the Madoka movies and Nisemonogatari seeming like possibilities. But the Madoka movies are still being shown in theaters, aren't they? It doesn't seem like they're quite ready to release those yet. Nisemonogatari might be a candidate for a release in the near future, although it may still be a little early.

                  Other than that, they don't seem to have anything lined up; I haven't even heard of any subtitled sets coming out that they might try to import (except for perhaps Gurren Lagann, and that would be unlikely to show up til next year, if they did it at all). Are they really going to go for several months with virtually no releases? It seems especially odd when you consider that Aniplex USA put out something virtually every month last year.

                    Yeah, it does seem like we'll be waiting a while. Although allegedly the 3rd Madoka Movie is coming out this year, so if Aniplex releases it the same way they did with the first two, they could release the first two Madoka Movies to promote the 3rd one, maybe include a preview on the DVDs or something to generate interest. I dunno. All I do know is I've got a hundred bucks set aside for the LEs (should there be any) and I'm chomping at the bit for a solicitation.

                            Not sure if this has been posted yet, but Sentai Filmworks has updated their site and added a release calendar which shows Hidamari Sketch Season 3 scheduled for November and Maid Sama scheduled for December. And browsing through the "Shows" section of their site I noticed that a lot of their recent/scheduled DVD only releases now have "BD-Complete Collection" listed under the format, along with "Place to Place" that was released last year also now having a BD Complete collection listed.

                            Edit: Penguindrum has a "DVD-Complete Collection" listed, it doesn't say anything about a Blu-Ray complete collection though.

                              EDIT: currently they are missing some already released series on their list.
                              EDIT 2: probably better to wait for firmer confirmation since we don't what's accurate & what's not.

                              no "BD-Complete Collection" even though it has been confirmed before (the BD portion).

                                Oh nice! I held off on the DVD in hopes that one would get released.

                                Now if only they could release a complete blu ray WITH subs, that would be nice. Still waiting...
