ADV’s Dead, what’s to come of Sentai Filmworks releases?

September 21, 2009

Its been on the Internet for a while now but I wanted to assume it was only rumor.  I’ve got a number of anime from them, sad to see the effects of the economy is now hitting the anime industry.

Houston-based ADV Films is officially closed; they have sold their assets to five other companies.

This leaves me asking, Sentai Filmworks was presently working on Clannad ~After Story~, as ADV Films was to be the distributor, as they were with the first season of Clannad.  Who will distrbute the new works? “Sentai Filmworks” itself is a bit of a ghost term which is hard to define. Who is Sentai Filmworks?  They have no official looking results that show up on Google, only news of their relations with distributers.

    Sentai Filmworks is essentially neo-ADV. ADV has been operating under the Sentai Filmworks label ever since they had a fall out with Sojitz and lost most of the current titles they licensed for the past few years. The transfer to the “new” company is essentially a legal move to get rid of bad assets and debt that was acquired on the ADV label, so if anything the Sentai Filmworks label will make acquiring and distributing new anime a lot easier. It was also mentioned that the release dates for shows like Clannad After Story won’t change, so you have nothing to worry about.
