Media Blasters CEO John Sirabella posted at the company’s official website about the state of many of its licenses.
According to the post, Media Blasters no longer holds the licenses for the Bakuman., Rurouni Kenshin, and Berserk television anime series. Sirabella also explained that while the company once had acquired the rights for Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei and Moyashimon, the company has no plans to release them and that “these titles can and may be licensed to another company.” It was also mentioned that many other Media Blasters titles have expired, but nothing else was listed outside of the titles already mention. In addition, it was also stated at the company’s Facebook page that it will not be releasing the Squid Girl Season 2 box set.
Sirabella also stated that its AnimeWorks, Tokyo Shock, and Kitty Media labels are the only Media Blasters labels that will continue to acquire and published titles in 2013. The company will be focusing on its Kitty Media label, with the company releasing at least one Kitty Media title per month in 2013.
