As of May 1 the number of titles licensed in the year:
2004 - 31 titles
2005 - 29 titles
2006 - 26 titles
2007 - 29 titles
2008 - 17 titles
Why is 2008 so far behind?
Because it's only existed for four months.
the pirates are demolishing hopes

Great! Now we can PING him to death!
>As of May 1
Because Geneon is dead.
I took that into account for all the years. Each title cooresponds with the numble of titles licensed within the first 4 months.
In that retrospect, we already have ~20 after the first four months of this year. The number could double or even triple in the next 8 months.
2008 is doing extremely well as far as licensing goes once you consider that it is just May. But it doesn't help that two major companies went under early this year.
because most of the anime of this year is lolicon
wait, why are you still here then?
From half-epic to legendary
Not bad /a/, keep it up
what a stupid and useless narutard, the pic isn't fappable at all .
God damnit I just forgot about that. BAWW
Really easy answer:
1) Geneon died
2) ADV almost died, had to hold all new licensing to make sure they didn't lose what they had
2 companies? Geneon is one of them but what's the other?
Except both Marimite and ARIA are now licensed which pretty much makes the rest of the year moot. FUCK YEAH MARIMITE!

Rage for truth.
It's not done yet. Going by titles per month, 2008 is winning.
ADV isn't dead though. They are still putting out dvds and licensing titles.
ARIA anime is? fuck yes!
ADV is like the Titanic. Just kind of sitting there for a while until OH FUCK SINKING
No, 2008 is losing. All the years have been taken into account. If we were going by the whole year 2006 and 2007 have over 80+ titles licensed.
Sept. 30, 2008 Box Set 1 ~$40
BTW the box set is the first season.
>Aria The Animation DVD Collection (Season 1) (S)
>Date Available - Sep 30 2008
>Your Price: $37.49
Best news all day, but I hope it still gets subbed. Origination probably won't be out until late this year.
That's actually quite a lot considering we're not halfway through the year yet.
Maybe they stopped licensing generic harem and shounen shit which nobody would actually buy unless they're ANN drones. Now, Lucky Star is sure to sell like hotcakes.
>As of May 1 the number of tits licensed in the year:

This means nothing to me because I don't fucking buy moon toons.
OP's pic seriously got me hard. Fuck I love shots like that. Girl standing over you, about to step on you, etc. Feet are my fucking kryptonite. :-/
Not really. Compared to the previous years:
2004 had 119 titles
2005 had 59 titles
2006 had 84 titles
2007 had 91 titles
Yeh, who gives a crap what else is licensed this year? We get Aria and Marimite.
There needs to be an Ichigo Mashimaro pic for "I SEE A BUYFAG"
Did anyone get Kaiji?
ADV is already on their death bed.
In during dubfags and buyfags. Enjoy your shitty voices.
Only thing better than Aria and Marimite being licensed would be Akagi and Kaiji.
But I want to watch Kaiji for FREE
Then do so. I'd still buy it on DVD.
ANN moralbuyfags don't deserve it
because its fucking march you retard
Tell that to Yotsuba. If they ship volume 6 then I'll believe that they are alive.
>because its fucking march you retard
At 4 months into the year? We're far ahead of schedule.
There's no release date set for volume 6, so why are you expecting it anytime soon?
Just make one that says "I see someone with universalizable ideals"
A few months ago several of the online shops had it with a ship date in March. Now they are reporting "on order from manufacture" or an unrealistic ship date (Rightstuf 2012). Either several companies lied about Yotsuba's availability or ADV fell flat on it's face again.
And Lucky Star Vol. 1 costs 20 dollars.
Amazon still lists the release date for volume 6. It's February 25, 2008. What have you done with Yotsuba ADV?
It isn't that 2008 is behind, it's that 2004-07 were too far ahead.
Amazon also lists Gurren Lagann volume 1 even though it's got relicensed by Bandai.
