5cm Per Second, Innocent Venus get the axe

In more fun for ADV films, they have announced the discontinuation of 4 more titles: 5 Centimeters Per Second, Best Student Council, Innocent Venus, and Robotech.

ADV has not said whether they were also licensed by Sojitz like the 32 other titles that they lost or not, though I wouldn’t be surprised since it would seem to be odd for ADV to license these outside of Sojitz (except for perhaps 5 Centimeters).

This leaves Kurau: Phantom Memory as the only recent ADV release which it hasn’t lost or at least “discontinued” (Kurau was licensed 4 years ago just before it aired).  However, somehow I don’t think that ADV will be able to keep running the business on the back of Kurau.
