          I hope some of those announcements are Anime related, primarily HunterxHunter and JoJo set reveals and maybe Berserk 1997?

                Hunter x Hunter news: show will make Blu-ray "this fall". No date just yet. The fruits of Toonami. #otakon
                Jojo season 1 is "coming soon" to home video. Presumably a bit after fall and the hunter x Hunter release, then #otakon
                Bam. Viz announces an 8th limited edition Blu-ray set for Rama 1/2. Will include all OVAs and movies. #otakon
                Ranma 1/2 clarification / correction for @MarcFBR : unknown if 2008 OVA one shot will be in. Viz will try.

                New Viz acquisition: Studio Ghibli picture books. 2017. Billed as ideal for introducing younger readers. #otakon
                New Viz license: Queen's Quality. Sequel to QQ sweeper. 2017
                New Viz license: Sweet Blue Flowers. In 2 in 1 editions. New translations, full love promised.

                Revolutionary Girl Utena "super deluxe" edition coming spring 2017. Prototype reminds me of Nausicaa release #otakon

                Takako Shimura's Sweet Blue Flowers, a seminal work in the yuri (girls love) genre, comes to VIZ. #Otakon2016
                A sequel to the supernatural shojo series, QQ Sweeper, Kyousuke Motomi's Queen's Quality comes to VIZ. #Otakon2016
                VIZ Media to publish the video game-inspired new series from Legend of Zelda creator Akira Himekawa #Otakon2016

                    Very pleased to see Ranma OVAs and Movies. Maybe Maison ikkoku in 2017 or 2018?

                      That's great to hear that they got the Ranma OVAs and movies. These are the only DVDs that I got from the original release, but I'll gladly double up for it, especially if it comes with the proper openings and endings and the unreleased OVA.
                      MyAnimeList | Avatar: Haru, My Roommate is a Cat
                      Watching: And Yet the Town Moves, Super Sonico, Hayate the Combat Butler season 2, 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!
