Further Information about Senran Kagura

This week we became aware of an error in some online listings for Senran Kagura: Ninja Flash!.  The listings stated that the release includes OVA episodes that are not in the final release. We clarified the status of the OVAs, but we have seen some requests for further information on the matter.

 

The error was clerical in nature. We take full responsibility for this error and are taking the following steps:

 

- We are reaching out directly to all fans who purchased from FUNimation.com to offer a make-good or return with full refund. We will accept returns of unopened AND opened product for either edition of Senran Kagura: Ninja Flash! that were purchased on or before 7/29—our standard return policy will continue to apply to all other products.

- We have confirmed that fans who purchased the product from RightStuf will be able to return it, even if opened.

- The listing on Amazon did not include the error, so we cannot confirm whether they will accept open returns.

- Any fan who opened their product and purchased it from a retailer who will not accept an open return is encouraged to email [email protected]. Please note that we will ask for proof of purchase, such as a receipt.

 

We apologize for the error on our part and any inconvenience this may have caused. Our goal is to continuously earn your trust and be your favorite provider of Anime.  This error, while not intentional, is something that we take very seriously.  We are taking steps to avoid errors of this nature in the future and to regain your confidence.

index ii part oneseries synopsis:

When science and sorcery clash, the result is explosive in this sequel to A Certain Magical Index from the studio that brought you Shakugan no Shana!

The Book of the Law—an encoded grimoire containing catastrophic magic—has been stolen, so naturally Kamijo, Index, and a few familiar faces join in the crusade to protect the one nun who can decipher the powerful text. But as the group battles church sects and holy assassins, they realize that discovering who their true enemy is may be more difficult than saving the sister. Meanwhile, an organization known as the Science Society resurrects an esper-producing program, a school festival brings out the competition—and drama—in the student population, and a mysterious figure negotiates the purchase of a sacred relic that could threaten the future of Academy City.

 

We’ll be premiering the English dub of A Certain Magical Index II at Otakon next weekend, so if you’re in town be sure to attend! Keep an eye on the Otakon website for scheduling information.

When we unveiled our exclusive Attack on Titan, Part Two Collector’s Edition configuration a little while ago the biggest demand we heard from fans was a request for the Ender Box to also be included in the Limited Edition release. The Ender Box is a hard chipboard box that can house both your Part One and Part Two Limited Edition releases (see image above).

 

Well, you asked and we listened. There are now TWO Attack on Titan, Part Two Limited Edition listings available in our Shop for fans. One will include the Ender Box, for those fans who want the chipboard box to hold their Limited Edition releases, and one without the Ender Box. Please note that the addition of the Ender Box will increase the price of the Limited Edition set slightly. Click here to get Attack on Titan, Part Two PLUS Box.

 

We always strive to provide the best for our fans, and thanks to your feedback, we are pleased that we will now be able to offer you this alternative listing. Attack on Titan, Part Two will be available on Sept. 23rd.

Synopsis:

 

Prepare to embark on a horrifying voyage into the heart of darkness!

While drifting through haunted waters, the Straw Hats encounter a ghost ship inhabited by a walking, talking skeleton. Luffy quickly befriends the ghastly newcomer, but the rest of his mates want nothing to do with this panty-obsessed bag of bones. Before the mystery of the seagoing skeleton can be deciphered, the Straw Hats find themselves trapped within the terrifying walls of Thriller Bark! The situation gets even spookier as our heroes encounter invisible fiends, a graveyard of the undead, possessed paintings, and a zombie samurai! To make matters worse, Zoro and Sanji suddenly vanish – and Chopper, Usopp, and Nami get trapped inside a coffin. While his crew flounders in this floating house of horrors, Luffy sets his sights on a showdown with the man behind the madness: the shadow-stealing monster Gecko Moria!
