Funimation licenses Eureka Seven TV series


Rescues the show from the defunct Bandai Visual USA

We really shouldn't be surprised. Today, Funimation announced they've licensed Eureka Seven. It's not unheard of for a show to be rescued long after a publisher folds. Following the dissolution of Bandai Visual USA, Funimation and Sentai had ample time to pick at the remains and with each passing day, the chances of our favorite shows being rescued from obscurity would decline. 

Fortunately for Eureka Seven, Funimation has already invested itself with the sequel Eureka Seven: AO. That in mind, it would only make sense for them to have rescued the original series when the opportunity finally presented itself. Though, it does make me wonder why they took their sweet time. Perhaps the original license remained valid, despite Bandai Visual USA ceasing their operations. Either way, fans can rest knowing the series is good hands.
