    Re: ADV Films Status?

    I think ADV's revival is for one of two things, one likely and one not-so-likely:
    • Likely: A new streaming service for simulcast anime competing with Crunchyroll and FUNimation.
    • Not-so-likely: Some sort of distribution label for TV broadcasts (i.e. Toonami).

      I doubt it'll be anything like that. If anything they'll just release classic ADV titles and that'll probably be it.

        There are some ADV titles I need on Blu-ray, so that would work.

        I would also take DVD for some older re-releases of stuff that never made it to DVD (provided they still have the rights).
        Blu-ray/DVD Collection / MAL / IMDB
        Most wanted anime licenses: Kodomo No Omocha, Pumpkin Wine, Maison Ikkoku Movie/OVA, Tokimeki Tonight, Nurse Angel Ririka SOS, Windaria, End of Summer
        Most wanted live action Blu-Ray releases: Blood Beach (1980), Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977), Malibu Bikini Shop (1986), Streets of Fire (1984), Dead of Night (1945)

          The pre-split up licenses that I know are still current are:

          Diamond Daydreams
          Divergence Eve
          Elfen Lied
          Lady Death
          Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi
          Mahoromatic
          Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok
          Nanaka 6/17
          Night Raid 1931 (or was this early Sentai?)
          Parasite Dolls
          Pet Shop of Horrors
          Princess Tutu
          RahXephon TV & movie
          Sin

                I would think that it goes away after that date for good, but considering that it's still here even though ADV is long gone must mean something.

                  As I said before, I really do believe it's just some of their design staff having a little fun. I too wouldn't be surprised if it went away permanently after that date. It really doesn't seem that anyone in Houston seems real interested in resurrecting the past. Sentai is a strong label for them that is continuing to grow. There are also Greenfield's Maiden Japan and Switchblade, plus Sentai's Kracken films. There really is no need to breath life into the ADV label. ADV wouldn't be able to do anything the other companies can't already do themselves.

                    Not sure if this could mean anything, but I randomly checked the page again and now this pops up when you go to the site. http://i.imgur.com/xlm3sdo.png

                      Just to see what happens, I submitted my email. I received message asking me to confirm my email, so I did. I guess we will have to see what comes of this.

                        You know, I wonder if this would have something to do with them taking it over as Sentai Select possibly.

                          Just checked on this last night, the website domain has expired. Its a standard Network Solutions under construction page.

                          The domain is owned by some "Perfect Privacy LLC" in Florida

                            I wonder why they never rereleased Rahxephon? I have the JPN BD Box but I'm surprised ADV never saw fit to release the show on Blu Ray themselves like they did with Elfen Lied.

                              Perfect Privacy is a company that's part of the Web.com group just like Network Solutions. The purpose of the company is, as the name suggests, to provide (optional) privacy for domain registrants by shielding their company info such that public records in the WHOIS database all show only Perfect Privacy's information instead of the registrant's, which helps reduce spam, unnecessary contact, etc.

                              So it doesn't mean the domain has expired, or for that matter that anything has necessarily happened to whatever ADV currently is, just that whoever is technically in charge of the ADV entity at this point (still Ledford, I think) decided that there wasn't any need to have an actual webpage up with active content, and that it was probably a good idea to further reduce the company's public profile by making it as private as possible.

                                Well, that's weird. Its back up now. I guess they didn't realize the domain had expired until now.

                                However, attempting to ping www.advfilms.com results in a ping timeout, and doing a tracert winds up having a request timeout after the 9th hop.
