Rumors from a Japanator geisha: FUNimation to annouce Romeo x Juliet?


Reporting from some internet laden cave, the reporter Gia brings her speculation that FUNimation will be dusting off Ye Olde English Dictionary. Apparently this is a blitz week for FUNimation, as they've announced several titles this week. The three known titles (so far) are KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple, Mamotte! Lollipop, and Gunslinger Girl Il Teatrino, with their remaining announcements to be at ACEN.

Okay, so I can't even say I've even heard of KenIchi, and a dub of Mamotte will probably make me vomit sugar, and a no brainier second season announcement. I've yet to be wow'd by any of these earth shattering developments, but Gia seems to have some crackpot theory that unofficial, official Japanese animated adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet will be picked up this weekend. This is the part where I'd state her logic and rational, but I'm not sure there's enough to be believed. That said, I tend to trust the woman, and its not too illogical a move on FUNi's part, but I will restate that Gia's opinions are just that, opinions...

But wouldn't it be nice??? Come on, I'd kinda like to see the show picked up, and not just because its by the company I can easily audition for.
