While the licensing news was a bit thin this year at Otakon, it seems that there are two very interesting acquisitions worth mentioning. First off, Funimation has obtained the streaming rights to Aquarion Evol. There is still no word on the home video rights, but judging from the visuals, it would not be surprising to see an eventual BluRay release.
Also announced at Otakon was that NISA managed to acquire the home video rights to Umineko no Naku Koro ni (without much bloodshed). The popular visual novel turned anime series will be released on BluRay this December. Nothing like horror, mystery, and murder right before Christmas!
