Does anyone know what the dilly-o is with the 6th volume?


The release date was supposed to be July 1st, but it isn't available any where. Any clues?

ADV Films and their partner ARMS had a falling out, probably because of ADV Films less than stellar DVD Sales, and has since pulled the license from ADV.

Bad news because Kanon was one of those titles and the Vol. 6 DVD were apparently ready to ship.

The good news is that Funimation now has the licenses to the 30 ADV titles and are going to release tham sometime in the future, whether that means new DVD's, boxsts and dub casts are unknown.

heard about that...

I hope they can roll some of those titles out soon, but I doubt it. A few of the licences funimation acquired from geneon have been given late august and september release dates. I'd say the earliest we start seeing some of the ADV titles would be around November/December, and who knows if Kanon will be one of the first to ship...

Yeah, it sucks and I feel for the people who had one volume to go, but I really hope Funimation just releases the boxset instead of the last volume or even a whole new set of volumes.

Neat. Thanks for the information. I appreciate that.
