    FUNimation Acquires Rights for Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!
    Posted by Lauren on 12/30/2014 at 5:15pm

    FUNimation is pleased to announce that we have acquired the rights for Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! Get ready for magical boy adventures from Diomedea, because this show will be joining our Winter 2015 Simulcast season, with the first episode starting January 13!

    synopsis
    Teenage boys are notoriously lazy, and the members of Binan High School’s Earth Defense Club are no exception. Their definition of “earth defense” is bumming around all day at the local bathhouse. But when a pink wombat appears out of thin air and begs the boys to help him save the planet, even the idlest high schoolers jump to action. Watch the magical boys transform and save the earth with the power of LOVE!

    Here’s what we’ve announced so far! Keep checking back to see the rest of our Winter 2015 Simulcast line-up!

      Interesting to see that series has an English site (http://boueibu.com/us/index.html) and Twitter account (https://twitter.com/BattleLovers). It looks like both may be ran by Pony Canyon.

        This is the official website of PONYCANYON USA INC., the U.S. subsidiary of Pony Canyon Inc. Pony Canyon is a Japanese entertainment company that produces popular anime titles such as "Attack on Titan" and "Tokyo Revengers", as well as movies and artists. and merchandise information.


        PONYCAN USA now has listed this series on the their website (3rd title). It will be interesting to see how this will work out between them and FUNimation.

            Well, that's quite an interesting development here considering that I was expecting them to license this show just like they did with Denki-gan and Yuki Yuna rather than to hand the license off to Funimation and allow Crunchyroll to stream it as well. I'll see how this develops, but in any case it seems to be unclear exactly which rights Funimation has at this point. Pony Canyon has some nice-looking releases provided that they do something about the size of those cases.

              This looks like a fun show, but I have a feeling I will have to pass on it if PONYCAN US decides to do its own DVD release. Appears-to-be-an-afterthought $70 4-episode gimmick-case release is a great way to get me uninterested in a series real quick.

                  So far, Funimation is only handling the streaming rights. There is a small chance it may fall under PonyCan's hands for home video release.

                    Do they try to get home release rights after seeing something is popular or right at the first stage?

                          Series was promoted at PONYCAN USA booth @ Sakura-Con (EDIT: alternate angle) but wasn't mentioned as part of the series that could be localized in the future. So the rights (just streaming or more?) for FUNimation and/or PONYCAN is still not 100% clear.

                          Animation production company and North American localizer Pony Canyon USA announced at its panel at Sakura-Con on Friday that it will localize Kyoto Animation's Sound! Euphonium, Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers, and the Lance N' Masques television series and the Garakowa (Vitreous Flower & Destroy the World) anime film. PonyCan stated there are plans to dub all the series in English, but it depends on each title's performance.

                              More sub only and $72 still, like Denki-gai, despite YuYuYu being the same price dubbed.
