Funimation Licenses North American "When They Cry" Releases

>> July 8, 2008

A day I have been looking forward to for a while, Funimation has relicensed Higurashi no Naku Koro ni's North American release, or "When They Cry." The previous licensee, Geneon, went under and was forced to drop all of it's series'. As a result, the volumes following vol.3 were put on indefinite hiatus and were presumed to never have an official North American release, and the already released DVDs went out of print and are now extremely rare. Here are the announced release dates for the Funimation releases of "When They Cry" Whey They Cry, Vol.1 - $29.98 - 9/30/2008 Whey They Cry, Vol.1 + Artbox - $39.98 - 9/30/2008 Whey They Cry, Vol.2 - $29.98 - 9/30/2008 Whey They Cry, Vol.3 - $29.98 - 9/30/2008 Whey They Cry, Vol.4 - $29.98 - 9/30/2008

And yet, all six volumes are out and available under Geneon. Interesting how that works...
