I received a tip from DiGikerot that Funimation acquired licenses to Sekirei and Birdy, as announced at their panel at AnimeUSA. There goes my "Funi only licenses shit" mantra. I realize that with the dominant position Funi enjoys, it was only a matter of time before they grabbed something decent in their bumbling. Now it's "Funi mostly licenses shit".
BTW, all normal news feeds were asleep at the wheel. There's nothing at Gia's Vice, John's Nation, and even on the mighty ANN. I love reader's tips. It's too bad I don't get much, and Mr. Kerot is more of an online friend than "reader".
