I would say that I appreciate that there's another outlet for BD/DVD releases (regardless of the prices thereof), but so far, the series shown here aren't regarded very highly in this community that I'm aware of (except Gintama, Free! and Yamada-kun, which is great for the many fans for those series which includes me for the latter!!).

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been wanting CR to do home releases for a long ass time. If you guys do DVDs of any of the Saint Seiyas (SoG, Omega, maybe even Hades or Sanctuary...) I will be a happy man.

You just named 3 of the 7 titles listed as exceptions to your impression of the shows not being very highly regarded. That's, um, almost half. So a generalization that the series shown aren't highly regarded seems a bit out of place.

It will be interesting to see what else comes up.

I don't purchase physical media and merchandise much, but I think this a really important step if they are going to play in the same park as Funi--especially now that Funi is becoming competition in the streaming outside of US/Canada markets.

Hope this venture leads to good findings, and I hope some of the little gems on here that have yet to be licensed get picked up as well.

Oooh, this is cool. I'd be super-stoked to see some older catalog titles get the DVD treatment at least! Some shows like Erin don't have English DVD releases anywhere.

I am so, so happy for this. I have been hoping that Crunchyroll would do this for a long time. I can't wait to buy Free!, Myriad Colors, and (maybe) Gintama, too

As I am a streaming guy, if they could get the rights to stream the English dubs here, I will be happy. I would think CR might want to do that for people that prefer streaming. Sentai and Funi does a similar thing where they have much of their catalogs streaming and the option to buy it online.
