http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-08-10/funimation-adds-code-geass-tales-of-the-abyss-witch-hunter-robin-more

ANN is really acting up so I'll post the list:


Tales of the Abyss
Witch Hunter Robin
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2
Angel Links
Crest of the Stars
Banner of the Stars
Banner of the Stars II
Passage of the Stars - Birth

Angel Links is a spinoff of Outlaw Star, so I'm going to guess that they'll get that too.

How so?
Haven't these been on hard copies for awhile now?

You're correct some of these are still available.

However, for example if I wanted to buy Code Geass the complete series (S1 and S2) it would be roughly $120.00 on Amazon currently.

Funimation will likely re-release these titles at a reduced price or possibly even in their S.A.V.E. line where you could probably pick up the entire series for around $40 to $50.

Oh heck yeah, Crest and Banner of the Stars. Awesome news. Nice seeing them pick up Code Geass as well, though, doesn't really affect me since I have the DVDs

An FYI:

Sentai also will get some Sunrise titles too but Funimation got the bigger names this round. Among Sentai's will be Big O, S-cry-ed and Kurokami. So at least there is a chance of Kurokami coming back to Crunchyroll(although I'll be honest, it's not worth a re-watch IMHO).

I hope FUNimation re-release as "Anime Classics" over S.A.V.E.
