    I really hope A Silent Voice eventually comes out of this.

      Best chance of U.S. release. I also updated list of what's not confirmed from them. The other curious title (for me) is Liz and the Blue Bird.

        Yeah, I would really love to see that too, if Pony Canyon US doesn't have first dibs on it.

          I'm wondering how they're going to price these since they are going to be exclusive to Rightstuf's store. I'm interested in Haikara-San so far.

            Assuming this finally gets us our North American home video release of A Silent Voice, this will likely be the biggest news of the weekend for me. It's too bad that wasn't one of their initial announcements, but it's definitely good news all around. More theatrical anime releases without fear of them staying exclusive to the big screen.

              I knew that this was coming as soon as I was told that the Right Stuf panel replaced the Eleven Arts panel, and now they have their movie line mostly for stand-alone stuff. So they have Nozomi, Lucky Penny, 5 Points, Critical Mass, Sunrise (for all the Gundam stuff only), and now Eleven Arts as divisions, either as their own or through partnerships with an external company. So far, it's just Haikara-san and the Laughing Under the Clouds movie, and I'm hoping they can release Maquia, Nanoha Reflection, Silent Voice, and Liz and the Blue Bird. I'm hoping that they have a distribution arrangement similar to what Pony Canyon has with Sentai for Cutie Honey Universe for Silent Voice and Liz and the Blue Bird seeing that Pony Canyon isn't exactly in the mood to release stuff themselves. In any case, this leads to several possibilities, and I'm thinking that should they eventually release Nanoha Reflection, it could possibly lead to them rescuing the TV series as nothing was ever released from that franchise ever since Geneon went out of business (of course, dealing with Aniplex is never easy, but anything can happen).
