    Still no Future Diary eh? Curious what's going on with that title since it's past the initial projection they gave for it and they've definently finished recording it. Maybe they really are waiting for the bonus episode that's coming out in Japan during the summer, but dunno how long of a delay we'd be in if that were the case...

      I guess Phantom in the S.A.V.E. line means the original releases didn't sell that well. It's a good series so at least now maybe more people will check it out since it has a low price.

      First half of 2013 has been very disappointing. I've barely bought anything from Funimation so far this year and the last new Funimation titles I bought were back in the summer of 2012...

      Even if the new stuff I want to buy are released later this year there's not a lot of them... I guess 2013 is going to be a weaker year for the number of Funimation titles I'm interested in.

        Yeah. Starting to get me worried here.

          I thought this was the first re-release of Birdy, but I guess I forgot about the complete collection that came out a little over a year ago. Sad to see it in the SAVE line; same with Phantom.

            Kadokawa issues most likely. If they're planning a BD box, then that might push back a North American release.

                Wow, if that holds up, its another unimpressive solicitation list from Funi. Still fuming at them over the FAM release date debacle and now this list has me really wondering just what's up with them?

                Hope the Heaven's Lost Property Forte BD release holds up for fans of the show, but I have no interest in it or in Appleseed XIII and I own prior releases of everything else on the list.

                  Lately, it seems like I either have too many things to pick up or nothing at all. If this ends up the finalized list, June will be another empty month for me, like January and February. I already have what I want out of the re-releases and I'm in no hurry to grab Appleseed XIII.

                    Might pick up Birdy. Other than that, another sadly empty month for me.

                      Now I'm really glad I got Birdy during the 12 Days of Anime sale. I kind of figure it would get S.A.V.E.d so I wanted to avoid getting it with that ugly banner.

                        Guess waiting on Sengoku Basara seems to have paid off, will get that collection. Disappointed Phantom is straight to save? It didnt get any anime classics fancy packaging like Eden of the East or something? Why?

                        No Guilty Crown or Fairy Tail is saddening

                        I hope they wait for that to release it. No point releasing without it, with that end of the anime given.

                          From the current list, there's nothing I have any interest in that I don't already have in an acceptable enough release. I really hope more gets added by the time the final list is out, because FUNimation is having a pretty weak first half of the year. It seems like they should be able to get more out by now. I'd rather they not cram so much into December again. Maybe they're trying to make sure they won't have to continue delaying things, but even with the small slates they've had in the past few months, there have still been a few delays here and there.

                          For the sake of my giant backlog and the 50-something releases I still need to buy, though, I guess it would be best if I didn't need to get anything from FUNimation until at least the end of the year. But it's not exactly fair to think that way.

                            Really, really hope that isn't everything, but with their track record this year, it very well may be. Assuming that they don't add anything else, it will be yet another extremely weak month for Funi.

                            I really don't get what they're doing, unless they're actually having serious financial issues interfering with getting releases out the door. The end result is that Sentai is getting most of my money, when I would have been perfectly willing to give some (potentially a lot) of it to Funi if they actually released more of their titles in a given month (such as Black Lagoon: RBT, Guilty Crown, Future Diary, Michiko & Hatchin, Haganai, We Without Wings, etc). That doesn't seem like something Funi would want (financially speaking), so I don't get it (unless, again, they're having problems of some kind).

                              I'm only getting Birdy unless more gets added to the solicitations. I was hoping for a BD release as unlikely as that was but that obviously isn't happening now.
