    If M3 isnt announced this week or next week, then I imagine it would be announced by someone at this con.

    And obligatory Valvrave BD Aniplex anticipated statement of release and a Viz announcement of Free!

      Well, I can say for certain that I'll be attending Sakura-con for the first time this year. Hopefully something juicy will develop there. I haven't decided yet which panels I'll be checking out, but I will keep my eye on the AoA, Viz, and Funimation panels if I have the time for them. This will be my biggest anime-centric convention I'll have attended, with Megacon probably being the biggest multimedia convention I've attended. It's also the first one where I'm flying to attend. Looking forward to it for sure. It's just about only two weeks away at this point!

          So here is what I can see each company announcing at the panels this weekend.

          Aniplex - Dub and BD release info for Valvrave, release info for Oreimo 2
          Viz - License for Knights of Sidonia, and possibly for titles from past seasons like Free! or Arpeggio of Blue Steel, new titles for Neon Alley, dub cast for Blood Lad
          Funimation - Dub cast for The Devil is a Part-Timer, announce a new license from past seasons

          Anyway, with shows being licensed prior to the Japanese broadcast that not much is being announced at cons these days.
          MyAnimeList | Avatar: Kizuna Kazayama, The Rising of the Shield Hero
          Watching: Love Live!, Buddy Complex, Blue Period, Wonder Egg Priority
          Simulcasts: HZG, DAL, MMZ, KGS, KCC, LGH, RSH, RKO, SHE, TNB, SXF, KKD, KGN, YKN, AAS, DEA, ESL, SJC, PPK, MJS, AHA, WOM
          The only thing better than anime is sports. Get hit hard and you got JACKED UP! Or else it's a C'mon Man!

                Isnt it kind of too soon for Day Break Illusion, thought its final jpn disc only just released late last month, unless that doesnt affect dvd releases?

                  Considering Servant x Service is dropping in May (JPN final release in Feb), unless they plan on dubbing it or releasing it on Blu-Ray there shouldn't be a problem.

                    Silver Spoon must come to Blu ray. I will shed many tears if not : (

                      Geez, is there a reason Viz may possibly get Free?
                      Mari can't pull herself together because the Girl Friends Complete Collection 2 is about to be released by Seven Seas ON JANUARY 8TH or else Akko will get.....

                        Neon Alley kinda teased about someone grabbing Free! a few months back.

                        Anyways, what I'm predicting at Sakura-con:
                        Aniplex USA: Probably more info release about Valvrave, and probably a dub announcement of either Kill La Kill or Valvrave.
                        Funimation: Code;Breaker dub cast (or some other summer anime release dub cast), recap of the spring 2014 anime they are streaming. Nothing new.
                        Viz Media: Probably Blood Lad, Gargantia, and Coppelion dub casts. More manga licensing and maybe 1-2 anime pickups (really hope Strike the Blood is one of them).
                        Avatar: Sizuru Nakatsu from Rewrite! (if the anime and VN gets an English dub, Faye Mata should voice this character)

                          - Do you have any anime licensing announcements to make at Sakura-con?

                          - Since we made so many announcements recently, there are no BIG announcements, but we do have an announcement on one new manga title.

                            What many new announcements?

                            Hoping the manga is twin star exorcists or Haikyuu!!, but its probably from some alternative line like shonen sunday.

                              Quick question: Is anybody doing any live streams for the panels?
