Farewell to the NHK

I'm guessing any hope at showing Welcome to the NHK has been shattered, given they've stopped releasing volume 5's and removed the ADV release from Crunchyroll (where I was going to watch it if CJAS didn't get permissions... oh well...)

On that note, can someone post the no-NHK schedule somewhere, say on this forum?

This is most unfortunate. I'm now going to spend the 4th of July in mourning. :cry:

Look, I even used an emoticon for once to further express my profound sadness. Arg I want fansubs in CJAS.

Azumanga is quite good, but I kinda wanted NHK from the personally haven't seen it standpoint (which leaves just 7:50-9:25 and Giant Robo in that category). I guess that at least the schedule will have the OVA allocation I liked best[/made myself] with FLCL 5 & 6 together as the best night ever, although some of the schedule colors changed. FLCL is so a yellow show. Beige/peach is too ordinary to handle FLCL. ;)

Seems that this happened because FUNimation now has the rights. I'm not sure if they'll release the remaining discs on time or how this affects acquiring the showing permission.

You'll have to send a letter to funimation instead. However, I would not expect their release to coincide with ADV's timetable.

I'd also like to bring up the fact that Funi also has all the former Geneon (Higurashi, Nanoha, Hellsing, etc) titles and will start releasing from where they left off.
