    Really pleased about the Tatami Galaxy pickup. If the subs you use have a similar level of detail as those on Funimation's youtube page it would make for a further improvement on the Beez DVDs, which have a lot of untranslated signs.

    I agree, great pickups. Much better than the hilariously bad Comet Lucifer. I'd love to see Death Parade out ASAP. I don't think Funimations dub was that great, so if you can release sub only for this sooner, to get it out the door sooner. You'll probably make a lot of people happy.
