News Anime Series Licensed

According to news from the VSDA/CES (video sales & distributors/consumer electronics) show held this weekend in Las Vegas, Funimation has acquired the rights to the Yu-Yu Hakusho TV series. Also, Rhino has apparently acquired the American distribution rights to the classic Gatchaman TV series. According to a post on the Anime on DVD forum, “…they’ll release it as Battle of the Planets but I’ve been told that the extras on the DVD will include Japanese Gatchaman episodes subbed in English. They cannot release stand-alone Gatchaman releases due to contractual reasons with Tatsunoko.”
