    Sentai is the only major distributor having a panel at this con, and while generally don't expect much to be announced at a con of this profile, there are a lot of imminent matters that need to be addressed. First of all, there's HIDIVE coming to VRV, and that could open up a partnership with Crunchyroll with a deal like what Funimation had with them before their breakup in two weeks. And they might be dubcasting Tsurune and with this show's late start, this would be an appropriate time to announce it.
    MyAnimeList | Avatar: Nanako Yukishiro, Senryu Girl
    Watching: Stellvia, Baki, Toonami Stuff
    Simulcasts: FTL, TOA-I, TSL, SAO, KTF, CQK, KMF, DAL, TSH, PNL, More TBD
    The only thing better than anime is sports. Get hit hard and you got JACKED UP! Or else it's a C'mon Man!
