Hey, I own lots of series that I first watched through with the fansubs.
Alright, I wasn't trying to be confrontational; I just wanted to make sure you're an upstanding citizen.
The Utena license rescue is obviously my favorite news to come out of AX. Not to mention it's the remastered version, which looks absolutely beautiful. I'm particularly enjoying how the ANN and AnimeOnDVD forums are just going crazy over the news. Utena is such an amazing show, and now you don't have to be rich to own it anymore.
I'm definitely glad the remastered version of Utena is getting released here. I'll definitely be buying it when it's released. I'll also be buying Right Stuf's other license, Sora no Woto, since I enjoyed the show, though I hope Right Stuf releases a Blu-ray version, since it's one of the most beautiful shows I've ever seen.
The Texhnolyze, Haibane Renmei, and Lain rescues are great, since they are fantastic shows. I hope Funimation is able to get the Lain remaster that's getting worked on in Japan; that's the only way they're going to get me to re-buy that show.
My favorite news though was probably Funimation's announcement of A Certain Magical Index and A Certain Scientific Railgun. Those shows look amazing, and I've been hoping someone would pick them up.
