Press release:

Santa Ana, CA (Feb 12, 2010) – NIS America is excited to announce today its plans to release Japanese anime titles to North America beginning mid 2010. As an entertainment publisher NIS America has focused on releasing video games; however, with the growing demand for Japanese pop culture, NIS America will provide quality anime contents along side with video games. Initially a selected number of titles will be released on a scheduled basis and will expand its offerings over time. Like its video game offerings, anime titles will be available with collector’s items. The first 4 anime titles that are planned for releases are “Toradora!”, “PERSONA -trinity soul-”, “PandoraHearts”, “Our Home’s Fox Deity”. Release dates and pricing will be announced soon.

any new anime company coming out of the woodwork nowadays is a good thing but lets hope some english dubs are also in the works for these titles as well

Toradora finally! I am very excited about this. I hope they do it right.

I have to ask: No pricing or formats or dates  have been announced... But do YOU know? Have they told you 'inside guys' their plans, but you're just not allowed to say?

I love the games that NIS America brings over to the US. So I'm hopeful that they'll do these series justice. But if they don't include a dub, then they will have failed in my opinion.

NIS America is trying their hand at anime licensing?  This... might not be a good thing.  I'll try them but this is might be a bumpy ride.
