Rounding out the month of May, we’re here to dish out all the happenings at all the conventions from Memorial Day weekend, with some news that’s not very surprising given corporate synergy and some news that’s WAY out of left field – and on top of that, we’ve got a fresh breaking story about Sony’s continued dominance of the global anime market by way of Funimation making a big overseas deal in the UK, along with some more reports and happenings that have been rumbling in the infosphere for the past week.
