Good News

If you're a retool of a spin-off of Tenchi fan, that is. Funimation has licensed the Sasami: Mahou Shoujo Club series for a 2008 release. A couple fansub outfits only managed to get the first episode released (even after all this time). Now we get to see how this new (and likely inferior) Misao turns out.

Wait... They licensed what now?

I can't begin to guess what ADV is thinking by licensing Xenosaga: The Animation. There was a recent bit of discussion about how ADV can still make B titles profitable, but I didn't think they were going this deep in the barrel.

ADV must have got a smoking deal on this license.

The animation is a sub-par adaptation of a niche sci-fi RPG. Anyone who's even remotely interested in the anime will have likely already grabbed the fansubs from 2005. I don't see ADV being able to add anything to the title that will draw back fans who have moved on after the game series was prematurely terminated. I don't find the character designs particularly enjoyable, and there are plot holes you could swing a galaxy through. That's because the plot of the anime doesn't include any material from the third episode of the game series. If they're hoping for impulse buys, I don't think this is going to be it.
