License has expired and Funimation has no interest in the title.

So there's no possibility of any other company picking the title up? I mean I never figured it would be something Funimation would be interested in.

It could be licensed by someone else, but Funimation distributed the title for Geneon USA and had access to the sales numbers. When they said they have no interest in picking up the title. It means that the title sold poorly and the possibility of someone else picking it up is less likely. The only way Sentai for example will pick it up is if the license is super cheap.

By the way, do you know if the remainder of the series was an actual 3rd season? Or was it an OAV? Or both? I've been told all three but was never able to verify. And thanks for answering all my questions smile

I have no idea. I have never seen the series before.

According to the wikipedia article, there were three TV seasons and a 5 episode OVA:

Season one originally aired from April 3, 2004 through Feb 12, 2005 - 39 episodes
Season two originally aired from April 2, 2005 through Feb 26, 2006 - 39 episodes
The five OVA episodes were released between October 2007 and March 2008, and
Season three originally aired from April 3, 2008 through Feb 19, 2009 - 39 episodes

Unfortunately, I've never seen the series either, so I can't comment on how much of it was released here, and how much wasn't. I'm sure that you can figure that out, though, given the information above.

Hi, Sevi!

Seasons 1 and 2 of Kyo Kara Maoh (episodes 1-78) were previously released by Geneon/FUNimation, so I believe the portion of the series that never made it to the U.S. is actually made up of both the OVA and Season 3.

Hope this info helps!

Sorry if this has been brought up already but could Agua(aria) V1 and V2 be licensed for POD? I belive they are both OOP.

I realize that light novels may be out of the scope of RightStuf but I would like to get the rest of The Twelve Kingdoms. Seems ironic that the Anime and English translation of the LN stoped at the same place in the story.

To round up my request how about licensing the anime of Card Captor Sakura?
