Update: May 5, 2010: The Sentai Filmworks website is now online.

On September 1, 2009, ADV Films announced that it sold most of its assets to five different companies, all of whom are based in Houston, Texas. Although it may appear that the company is essentially dead, some industry observers believe that the move is an attempt to end a relationship with a hostile shareholder that has damaged the company while still maintaining its core competency and catalog.

After the September 2009, new releases typically have these credits:

(anime) Licensed bySentai Filmworks
(live action) Licensed bySwitchblade Pictures
DistributorSection 23 Films
DVD ProductionSeraphim Digital Studios
Internet StreamingAnime Network

See Section 23 Films for the list of anime series formerly licensed by ADV Films.
