    Not going to go over every company, but just some random things I'm hoping for:

    Crunchyroll/FUNimation/Kadokawa: Some Konosuba home video release news, please! Licensing the spin-off books to Yen Press would be good too.

    Aniplex: I agree with those hoping for something on Re:Creators (especially a dub). Also, any home video news on Saekano Flat. I feel like it's real longshot at this point, but hoping for Anohana movie and Anthem of the Heart to be dubbed.

    Pony Canyon: It would be cool if we get home video plans for Kase-san and Morning Glories and Liz and the Blue Bird in addition to them premiering at AX. Some streaming later on at the very least. I really would want Kase-san to be dubbed (Yuyuyu S2 as well), but probably unlikely. Also, they need to re-release Yuyuyu S1 and Rokka (the latter with the dub included now). Sublicensing to other companies would be wonderful.

    Seven Seas: Nothing specific to say, but could be some rather interesting things with ten licenses coming, and at least some yuri.

      I'm torn between "have a feeling" and "hoping for" in terms of one of the ten licenses being something Dragon Maid-related.

        I have not even collected the main series yet, but I admit I'm kind of curious about the Elma spinoff since I liked her and the OL stuff with her in the anime. Would be nice if they got that since they already are releasing the Kanna one.
