Being between seasons this is a slower line up. As Narutaki mentioned this seems to be the month that Sentai Filmworks just stuck their hands in a hat and randomly pulled out titles to license. I half expect them to announce the Japanese dub of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic just to round things out with titles no one expected.
The Line-Up is a monthly rundown of newly licensed in the U.S., newly streaming in the U.S., and newly announced anime and manga projects.
