The importance of FUNimation to Navarre's bottom line was underscored by the inclusion in the report of a note about the shifting of the release of Afro Samurai DVD to the next quarter as a possible explanation of why Navarre's sales were down $3.3 million versus the same quarter in the previous year, but the real culprits were declining sales from BCI, whose vintage TV on DVD releases are facing stiff competition in a crowded market and forcing BCI to deal with higher than anticipated returns, and Encore, where sales of non-entertainment brands were down.

Full Metal Alchemist, Dragon Ball Z Season Sets, Trinity Blood and Basilisk were singled out as prime contributors to the strong performance.
