    I like this approach of releasing entire seasons/series without the DVDs, but unlike their Attack on Titan season 1 set it looks like slipcovers are also being ditched, which is a bit disappointing. That said, I?ll definitely be taking advantage of this opportunity to pick up shows I missed before, like Assassination Classroon season 2 (when it comes) and Code Geass

      nothing for me, I don't like the double(triple) banners on the classics releases at all.

        I'm absolutely shocked that My First Girlfriend is a Gal is getting a LE release. I wonder who watched that piece of trash that season. I get that Funi can't give every deserving show a LE, but that show getting one is something I'll never understand.

          I don't know why you're picking on a show like that, but Gal was a big hit among FUNi's simuldub watchers on social media during the season it aired. It's no surprise it's getting an LE.
          I watched and enjoyed the show too, so I'll likely grab the LE as well.

            Still no Tanya of Evil. Wonder what the hold up on that is.

              Ew, those new banners look awful. Hopefully they look better in person. From this list just Iron Blooded Orphans and possibly Ass Class for me. I'm going to track down the old release of Ergo Proxy. The hideous Classics border is chasing me away from picking up Overlord.

              That being said, digital copies instead of stupid DVDs is a very, very welcome addition, so good on Funi for that at least.

                They are a TRILLION times better than the old Anime Classics though! No stupid spines, no ugly as all hell border either!! Fantastic improvement imo.

                  Agreed, especially with the "Blu-ray + Digital HD" banner, A better way would have been to do like they have done for their movie releases but without the DVD text on them.

                  The only positive is if they drop the ugly SAVE banner in favor of this on their next set of releases.

                  EDIT: Oh I see now.....if they're dropping the slipcovers for these releases, why not put the "Classics" text on the same banner as "Blu-ray + Digital HD" but below that? There's definitely enough room on there to try it.

                    If the SAVE line is still around. I've noticed the complete collections haven't been going straight to Classics or SAVE lately like they were a while ago. A SAVE releases haven't happened since December.

                      Which is GREAT for space and having useless doubles of discs... but with the digital copies just being usable through their site/app (and not Ultraviolet, Vudu, or MoviesAnywhere)... they are of no use if you're already a subscriber, right? Or am I missing something?

                        Will update first post later today.

                        Some of the releases are up @ http://www.crunchyroll.com/store/mov...isplay=16,pg=0 (some are 50% off for CR titles)

                          Yeah pretty much. Plus I haven't actually been able to redeem my code for MHA S2 Part 1 yet.

                            Wow, this is a fantastic and super strong slate with good new shows and rereleases of fan favorites. I am also very glad to see Funimation staring to fade out that ancient technology known as "DVD"; WELCOME TO THE FUTURE.

                                Fair enough. WELCOME TO THE RECENT PAST then?
