Why is Ben-To listed but has no episodes? http://www.funimation.com/shows/ben-to/anime
Did Funimation license it?
EDIT: Crunchyroll article - http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-02-05/funimation-opens-ben-to-web-page
So they have announced that they have licensed it and will be streaming it. YOBO!
now that is interesting
One can hope it means its been licenced but has yet to be formally announced yet. If this is the case, and appears to be so, the videos will start to o up at a later date. for now Stay tuned and see what funi has to say on this.
Oh cool, I'm quite excited for this, ever since the questionnaire a couple years back asked "what anime are you interested in" I've been hoping they would pick this up. I don't know much about it past the ANN description, but it's right up my alley and a certain pre-order.
hmmm, a 2.25-year-old series that sold below the Manabi line (1848 copies on average to be precise; Aria the scarlet ammo sold 5321 on average), so it looks like Funi's still interested in getting older stuff. Hope they could get Hayate s2 (since it sold a lot more than Ben-To) and dub it.
Huh. Well, I guess what I said about it the other day in the license requests thread still stands. A goofy premise for a battle anime, even when lined up against other goofy battle anime. I'll admit, Ben-To's premise has Sentai Filmworks written all over it, so to see Funimation eventually grab it is nothing sort of surprising - though, I said the same thing when they picked up D-Frag and NO-RIN
Here's hoping it gets a dub, since it'll have the potential to raise the show from 'completely forgettable' to 'marginally humorous'
This show was pure ridiculous and awesome, regardless of whether or not this one gets a dub (and I really hope it does and gets a great one), I'm definitely going to pick this one up. Maybe the packaging will be in a bento box :D
Really hope this one sees a release sometime this year - day one purchase for me and I've been meaning to re-watch it for the longest time so I'm all up for it.
I think it'll be a sub just like Oniai. It's just my opinion.
May have to finally check this show out.
For any who are not aware. Funi made an announcement about getting the streaming rights for Ben-to! >> http://www.funimation.com/blog/?p=3504
