"El Cazador" licensed by FUNimation?

Subject: Noir
ANN reports:
"Last week, Funimation exercised a power-of-attorney agreement to remove online fansubbed videos of Monochrome Factor, Nabari no Ou, and Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (pictured at right) on behalf of d-rights, the Japanese production company of these anime titles. Funimation and d-rights' agreement also covers Bamboo Blade and El Cazador de la Bruja."

"The power-of-attorney agreement does not necessarily mean that these titles have a North American video distributor, but the agreement does enforce d-rights' existing worldwide copyrights for these series."

So it doesn't quite mean it's licensed, just that the Japanese license owner is looking to reassert control.

But the likelyhood is a lot higher. FUNi, though?
