News Brief: Funimation licenses El Cazador

February 19th, 2009

I’m absolutely beside myself with joy. There’s only three anime I want to see licensed right now and this was number one on the list. (Blue Drop and Mnemosyne are two and three. I know you’re gonna ask.)

Fans of Bee Train’s girls-with-guns-on-the-run trilogy, completion is around the corner at last, with Funimation’s licensing of El Cazador de la Bruja!

Finally, we’ll get to see Ellis loving Nadie best when her eyes are shining.

    Yes! Noir was excellent and Madlax is one of my all-time favorites, so I’ve been hoping for this one for…well, pretty much since the day I learned it existed!

    I’m SO happy they finally licensed the show. I was seriously getting worried it might not see a R1 edition because of the lack of popularity coupled with the current financial mess.
    Now I wonder what kind of extras we will get – hopefully some interviews with the cast, Hisakawa Aya has hardly had any roles in the last few years so it’s always good to see/hear her, and Itou Shizuka is an absolute riot.

    Awesome news! :D Can’t wait to add this to my R1 collection.

    And now my life is complete. I hope they release it in a big art box. With the sniper cat on the front. ^_^

    I’ll definitely be checking it out after hearing so many good things about it.

    forgive me for being daft–i’m new to all this, but does this mean that i can actually get dvds for this show?
    i was able to get the first half of the series, but i cannot find a vendor (at least not one who doesn’t charge an arm and a leg) for the last 13 episodes.

  7. @quick If you bought this series with English subtitles, you bought an illegal bootleg. The only place it has been licensed officially is Poland.

    This makes my day! I was afraid Noir and Madlax would sit on my shelf all alone but now El Cazador will come keep them company. I’d given up on seeing it over here.

    Ooh, hurrah. I’m tempted to go to the local Mexican restaurant to celebrate by buying some Taco, Taco Tacos.
