No company has picked up the licenses to any of those shows yet, some of which is probably due to the fact that those series are just a few weeks old. If those shows get licenses for release in the USA, Bombshells from the Sky would probably be Sentai Filmworks, and Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? and Dragon Crisis! would probably go to FUNimation Entertainment. As for Rio, I really don't see any company here in the USA grabbing that one. If it did, it probably would be Sentai again. When you say others though, nobody really knows what you mean. Some series are already on DVD, others have been licensed but not released.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think it takes at least 2-3 years for an anime to get dubbed and released in North America.

ChronicAddict, while that time length you mentioned is true depending on the series, I don't know if that is the overall norm. Even if we never got DVD releases here of Asobi and Zombie, I still would love to see get the uncensored versions.

My friend recently told me that there is a rumor going around that they are currently making a sequel to Avater: The Last Airbender? The rumors is that this will be 50-100 years in the future where a new avatar is chosen and the characters name is Cora and is a water bender. In order to master air bending she goes to Ang's and Katara's son. The plot is that people still have cold feet about the fire nations little invasion and world domination plans back in the original and stuff happens. I was wondering if this is valid?

Yes. It's called Avatar: Legend of Korra and it's supposed to come out later this year. Here's a link for you: http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Avatar:_Legend_of_Korra
