      Seeing that the staff behind Revue Starlight is there that I should probably expect that show to get a LE release announced at A-Cen. There was a campaign for that to happen at Anime Boston, so that's something I can see happening seeing that August solicitations are expected sometime during the week after the con.

          It's still more than a week away, but I'll go ahead and put out predictions for this year's ACen. Once again I separate the predictions by how likely they are to be announced knowing full well that far less gets announced than what I come to expect.

          Viz
          Great Chance: Manga announcements, Toonami broadcasts for Golden Wind and One Punch Man season 2, next Sailor Moon solicited
          Longshot: Infini-T Force announcements

          Aniplex
          Great Chance: License Do You Love Your Mom and her Two-Hit Attacks?, Solicit Cells at Work and Persona 5, dubs for Cells at Work, Persona 5, and/or Bunny-Girl Senpai, Solicit Kill la Kill compete collection
          Longshot: License and solicit Angel Beats, solicit Slow Start or Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs, solicit first half of Promised Neverland (too early, more likely to happen at AX)

          Funimation
          Great Chance: August Solicitations (will be announced prior to the con), Nichijou dub cast list
          Longshot: Any new license, Summer 2019 titles, license of Amazon or Netflix title

          Crunchyroll
          Great Chance: Announce summer 2019 titles

          Right Stuf
          Great Chance: Solicit Aria season 1 for the public, license title (which there's a hint for), solicit Gundam Seed
          Longshot: Kickstarter for dub

          Sentai
          Great Chance: August solicitations, Revue Starlight LE, License Danmachi season 2, Dubcast for Domestic Girlfriend, Haikyu season 3 LE
          Longshot: Dubcast for Danmachi season 2 (probably more likely at AX), license and dub Kaiji, Food Wars: The Third Plate LE, license of any other Crunchyroll title that doesn't have a release on BD

            Posting some of mine:

            Viz:
            Expecting: Sailor Stars dub cast (Galaxia, the Starlights and the Animamates) & Part 1 trailer
            Hoping: Infini-T Force disc release

            Aniplex:
            Hoping: Devilman Crybaby disc release & Kill La Kill box set (probably too early for this one so they better hope ArcSys continues supporting the video game when it eventually happens)

            Crunchyroll:
            Hoping: New disc distributor for their newly-licensed titles (probably too early)

            Right Stuf:
            Hoping: Gundam X Blu-ray announcement

            Sentai:
            Hoping: Gatchaman II HD Blu-ray announcement with a new dub (even though the latter's more of a longshot)
