I would suggest that it's not the medium, but the quality of perception and expression, that determines the significance of art. But what would a cartoonist know? -Bill Watterson
Lance said straight out in the ask a FUNi rep thread that they had big news planned to announce at Otakon, but because the contract hadn't been fully signed yet they had to wait until another convention. Rumor has it that it's Bleach, but it wouldn't surprise me if it ended up being Hunter x Hunter since it was done by the same guy who did Yu Yu Hakusho, and they do like going after series with the same creator.
College football, basketball, the NFL, the NBA, and MLB. I may not be an expert, but these sports always keep me fascinated if the game is good!

Argh, stupid contracts. My guess is that the licenses are Bleach/Negima and BECK.

Straight from an Otakon attendee (me):
At the FUNi panel, the topic of new licenses was brought up at least twice, and all Lance could say was that they were actually planning to make TWO big announcements at the con (if I recall correctly), but they couldn't because the contracts weren't officially signed, yadda yadda. Of course, this was followed by a little fruitless pleading and a general feeling of disappointment by the audience.
I also learned that Lance is undoubtedly the fastest DVD unwrapper in the world.
Two big announcements, eh? Well, that certainly leaves room open for a series that isn't the worst kept secret (Beck). Bleach certainly looks like the most worthy candidate, and with a show like that I'm willing to bet the contract will ask for a television broadcast.Originally Posted by Sanwich
Whatever you do, don't read this signature....?

WHy is everyone forgetting about FMA movie?that's something that they want.
Isn't it essentially a Given that Funi will get the FMA movie? the only difference I can think of is the Eva movies, but those were sat on for so long and ADV hadn't done anything withthe original series before that, so ti's kinda understandable. I don't think Funi would let something that , from what I hear, Completes the series (or at least the season...I really don't know)
I thought Funi already announced Beck.
Anyway, aside from CPM, what got announced? CPM's line of crap is nothing I care about. How about something good (then again, anime has sucked recently)? What about Bandai or Geneon?
What is so great about Bleach though? I saw a few episodes and found it to be quite boring.
Speaking of YYH, when is CN going to air the rest?
Anime Nation Entertainment licensed the Hare Guu series and showed the first episode at their panel. Bang Zoom! voices and the first DVD will be out in December I think.
Bandai's panel sent word to Otakon that they would not be able to attend as early as Friday I believe. They ended up being a no-show, too bad.
I think the real treat was the voice actors. They did quite a few crazy things like throw Snow Balls (the cake) into the audience. A girl also took off her bra to get Matt and David's attention during the ADV panel on Saturday. And as mentioned, Lance tore off the dvd seal with his teeth in like 10 seconds. It pays to get there early.
Hale Guu was anounced last year Vu.
