MICHELLE: I’m feeling in the mood for some Takahashi, so I reckon my pick of the week is going to be RIN-NE. That said, my real affection this week is directed towards Udon Entertainment for licensing The Rose of Versailles!
ANNA: I think I’m just going to pick Rose of Versailles every week for the next few months.
SEAN: Sticking with Takahashi, I’m picking the new Ranma 1/2 omnibus, mostly as I love Nabiki Tendo. You may assume I am over the moon about Rose of Versailles as well.
ASH: I am beyond thrilled that Udon was able to license Rose of Versailles, but this week I’ll happily (and appropriately) be distracting myself from the wait for its release with the utterly charming and delightful My Neighbor Seki.
What looks good to you this week (or in future months)?

Yeah, between that and Legend of the Galactic Heroes, pretty much best anime, manga, and novel licensing news between the three of them.
I actually don’t feel as bad that Otakon scheduled Viz and Vertical’s panels at the same time and I can only go to one (I haven’t decided whose to go to yet, but I feel fairly confident that Rose of Versailles will still be the best manga license this summer). At least Discotek runs unopposed (but it’s also at the very last panel time slot on Sunday), so my main anime licensor is free! Hope they announce lots of old things, and maybe some Ryosuke Takahashi 80s things!
