Tales of the Abyss and other sunrise licenses



  • I realize a while back Funimation picked up the license for a few Sunrise Bandai shows http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-08-10/funimation-adds-code-geass-tales-of-the-abyss-witch-hunter-robin-more Is anything ever going to be done with these? Will we see any home video re-releases In Japan they were putting out a new blu-ray box set for Tales of the Abyss http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/product/B019859U4O/ it would be nice to see this on blu-ray here with at least subs. Do you guys even still have the license for these? I know that was 3 years ago and haven't seen any news on any of the titles since in regards to Funimation.



  • FUNimation still has the license to those but are still waiting for Sunrise to send materials for some of those titles (like Outlaw Star when asked in March).

    Sentai is also having the same problem with their Sunrise licences.

    It is unknown at this time if 'Tales of the Abyss' will get a Blu-Ray release by FUNimation.

    Good to know, seems the holdup on this titles is more on the other side then. Yeah I'd buy Outlaw Star on blu-ray too if it ever gets a blu-ray release here. Hopefully Sunrise can get Funimation and Sentai what they need so the next steps can be taken. On the Sentai Side the Big-O Blu-Ray release in Japan had the english Dub on it my friend bought it. I would buy that if it gets a blu-ray release here by Sentai though.
