Umm yeah so like the title suggest, Working!! has been licensed. I received an email yesterday telling me that NISA had aquired the rights to this show. I don’t know if I am exactly thrilled about this. Since it’s NISA there won’t be a dub included and will be sub only, but that’s not what makes me unhappy. What pisses me off is the new name “Wagnaria”. Ok I get it, it’s the name of the restaurant the characters worked in in the show, but seriously fucking Wagnaria!? What was wrong with Working? Working sounds more like an appealing title.
It comes on 2 DVDs, I would have preferred 3 honestly. I am glad to be able to have the opportunity to pick up this title and have a hard copy for myself. I can’t help but to feel this title would have a much better chance in the hands of another company who would have dubbed it and been able to push it out to the casual audience. I mean it’s the perfect title for that audience. As usual the Premium set comes with a hardcover full color art book, if you want to pre-order it you can do it at the link below, release date is March 2011

>Alrighty NISA, you have 1 week to make me happy. I swear to god if you do not announce THIS
I am going to rage!!! July 15th has been the longest wait!! This is like the only thing I want, so please just lemme have it. I would rather have this than fucking Disgaea 4 or whatever shit.
It looks pretty obvious you are going to release it from the looks of that email you sent out. You had better not be pulling a prank on me, my heart cant take it.

“It came to our attention that there are some video quality issues with our first anime titles, Toradora! and PERSONA -trinity soul-. We are taking these issues seriously and are currently working on fixing the problems. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused. We will announce our steps to solve this issue as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.”
Not a great start for your venture into anime. I am curious as to how bad these problems are. Perhaps they look as awful as some of Funimation’s old encodes. Either way, seeing as how they had plenty of time to work on these, it will make me think twice and research their future anime products. Hopefully they can figure out what they are doing as time goes on. I’ll keep you updated if any screenshots happen to surface.
