Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Now as most of you loyal readers know, yesterday I did a rant about Funimation’s parent company Navarre Corporations plans to sell the popular anime distribution company. However some of you out there thought I took this topic a little too far. As a mater of fact, one commenter shared there thoughts about the subject in great detail. Now I will not mention the person’s name who wrote the comment, but I will show you folks what they said.

The commenter goes on to state,

I don’t know about you guys, but honestly FUNIMATION can go to hell and they deserve it for their lousy dubs and subs and greedy practices. Maybe Andrew is a vivid fan of dubs or something that see that if Funimation was go off business was going to destroy their world of Anime. I am sure if FUNIMATION goes there are many companies that can be doing a much better job with Anime and giving it the respect it deserves with quality dubs and subs if necessary”.

Now when I first saw this comment in my inbox this morning, I was in complete shock. But I do agree with the commenter that Funimation sometimes makes mistakes when producing dubs of popular series. But let me say this: if they do a terrible job with sub’s and dub’s of series, how would they be able to get licensing agreements for films and series such as Evangelion 1.0, xxxHolic, Case Closed, Suzuka, Dragon Ball Z and other popular titles just to name a few. If that was the case, Funimation would have went bankrupt years ago!!!!!

So in closing for all of you who feel that Funimation is a greedy and worthless company, I just have one thing to say to you.

“If you don’t like Funimation’s offerings, then you don’t have to buy there products. Simple as that!!!!!”. Ltrs.


Andrew’s Anime Rants-The Collapse Of Funimation???

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well here is another edition of my anime rants. And folks you may want to stay in your seats for this one.

According to Marketwatch.com, it has been announced recently that Funimation Entertainment’s parent company Navarre Corporation is currently in the process of selling the popular Japanese anime distribution company. Navarre states that Funimation’s business strategy is completely different from the companies overall strategy. They claim that in order for the business to grow, Funimation needs to focus on providing original content, social networking products and focus on digital broadcasting in which a potential buyer of the company with the same interests can provide.

As Navarre’s CEO Cary L. Deacon goes on to state,

Navarre is perusing a more focus strategy. Now that we have substantially reduced debt and improved operating margins, we are focusing our efforts on drawing revenue, particularly in new product lines”.

Now I don’t know if you are outraged by this or not but in all honesty, I am F******* P***** off by this. Now as most of you guys know, Funimation is one of the most popular anime distribution companies that has survived the tough times of the recession. Personally, I am absolutely upset by what Navarre is doing. This has to be one of the biggest mistakes that a huge corporation like Navarre could make. Navarre has plans to release more details during their end of the fiscal year conference call this Friday.

We will have more information about Navarre’s plans for Funimation later on this week, so stay with us for the latest updates on this developing story. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well before I begin this next post, I just wanted to tell you guys that I finally got a brand new high-definition television yea!!!!!! So that means that I can finally get caught up with some much needed reviewing!!!!!

But getting back on topic, a while back I did a review on the series known as Steam Detectives. Well to test my new TV out, I put in a disc from the Steam Detectives box set. Now as I was watching episodes thirteen and fourteen of the series, it kind of got me to thinking. What is Ling-Ling really like? Well for one thing, she is very talented as a nurse and as a detectives assistant. But besides that, she is a smart and caring young lady.

So for this edition of Anime Remix:AMV Edition, we are going to take a closer look at Ling-Ling’s personality. The song featured in this video is Lady In Red by Gregorian Chants. Enjoy the video everyone and I will talk to you guys again soon. Ltrs.
