This year Sentai came out swinging on full, not only was their booth amazing and the new shows both refreshing and solid. Their panel was also very eye catching with live props, cosplayers, really cool light up cloth posters, a band and lots of LCD TV’s playing trailers. Sentai has made it in a big way. Locking claws with huge industry and expanding it’s online options and of course DVDBD releases. Sentai brought a tank (literally) to a sword fight launching some huge titles that I think will do very well. Sentai did it’s homework and came up with one heck of a lineup.

About the Panel: Well First and foremost Sentai publicly addressed QA issues with a few of it’s older releases, they apologized and will be fixing these issues with new updated releases and will be tightening up on quality standards on all future titles. The fans spoke and Sentai has listened and is on the case. Spirits are high in camp Sentai and I’m happy to see all the great shows that have licensed. The panel itself was pretty much trailers, and releases, which with a little more time we will run down all the trailers or at least the ones we can get our hands on.
