Well, I guess the mystery of the missing license has been solved, for sure!
Yesterday, Funimation announced that they will release Gosick on DVD and Blu-ray. The first set, which contains the show’s first twelve episodes, will hit retailers on May 30. Funimation is producing a dub for the series, though no casting details have been announced.
Funimation initially hinted at the release on Twitter on Tuesday.

Gosick adapts Kazuki Sakuraba’s mystery novel series of the same name. The title, which aired during the Winter 2011 broadcast season, was directed by Hitoshi Nanba (Fate/Grand Order: First Order, Heroman) at studio Bones. The team of Takashi Tomioka and Toshihiro Kawamoto (Cowboy Bebop, Wolf’s Rain) provided character designs for the project, while Mari Okada (Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans) took charge of series composition.
Bandai Entertainment originally revealed that they acquired the rights to Gosick in July 2011. The series never hit home video, sadly, as Bandai discontinued all new releases the following January.
