I’m not sure how I missed this yesterday (probably because I was messing around with other stuff), but Blue Drop, a show which I thought might never get licensed, was picked up by, well, the remnants of ADV films (I think Sentai Filmworks did the actual licensing while the newly formed Section23 will do the distributing).
Sentai also announced licenses for Polyphonica, Special A, Tears to Tiara, and the second season to You’re Under Arrest.
Blue Drop is a 13 episode yuri/sci-fi series which aired between October and December 2007 (see my episode reviews). Polyphonica is a 12 episode adventure/comedy series that aired between April and June 2007. Special A is a 24 episode romance/comedy series that aired between April and August 2008 (see my episode reviews). Tears of Tiara is a 26 episode fantasy/adventure series which started airing this past April and is still in progress. Finally, You’re Under Arrest Season 2 continues the action/comedy series for an additional 26 episodes, which aired between April and August 2001.
You’re Under Arrest Season 2 Collection 1 has a street date of November 3rd, and includes the first 13 episodes.
Special A Collection 1 has a street date of November 10th, and includes the first 12 episodes.
The Blue Drop and Polyphonica box sets have a street date of November 17th, and contain the entire series.
Tears to Tiara Collection 1 has a street date of November 24th, and includes the first 13 episodes, a mere 5 to 7 months after they aired in Japan.
As is the case with all the new licenses from Sentai, these are all sub-only releases.
