The latest news from Manga Entertainment, the biggest distributor of manga and anime in the UK, has announced that it will no longer be releasing D. Gray-Man anime due to various reasons. No, it is not because of lack of fans, or at least this was not stated in the message.
The main reason behind the decision is that Funimation hasn’t taken on the next half of the series (episodes 52 and above) and Manga Entertainment does not have any dubs available. Obviously, this is bad news for many of Hoshino-san’s fans in the UK and probably most of Europe.
Hopefully, both Funimation and Manga decide to acquire the rights for the second season of the anime since it’s pretty disappointing for the fans to have only half of the anime on their shelves.
Is this great news or not-so-great? What do you think? Comment below.
