    Just looking I've the ones I've highlighted in Red. I'll reply later with any further I have, but suffice to say there were quite a lot of nameable titles (whether they were good is another matter ;) :D ), but as others have mentioned, a number have been intercepted and/or released by others. I bought Last Exile from the current licenser so it isn't strictly an ADV title.

    Elfin, Exile are relicensed in the UK and Nadesico is still licensed in the US under Nozomi.

    If any one can correct me, please do, but that still leaves a good number of titles in the abyss, DVD's of which are up for grabs on Ebay and Amazon.

    I can only hope whoever has taken over ADV can wrangle their old licenses as there are a good number of good ones.

    Out of curiosity which ADV titles are everyone's favourites?

    Just a quick edit. Here is a link to a wikipedia article (accuracy to be debated) of previous ADV titles. Please feel free to check for ones that may still be in limbo and confirm which you know are under new ownership.

    The trouble is that most of those former ADV Films licenses have now expired and rights returned to the original licensor, so I don't imagine there are too many shows left for them to play with beyond the likes of Elfen Lied and RahXephon as already mentioned.

    True, but we can only hope. ADV had a reputation and it'll be this (clearly) they will be using to spear head a return. If anyone knows them at all it would make sense for ADV to try to get these people back with titles they know (renew old licenses) and some headliners to lure newcomers.

    Of course that is speculation, and we can only wait and see :)

    101 was using ADVs license (and are indeed directly linked to the ADV's old distribution partners). Both the US and UK re-releases of Elfen Lied had the ADV logo on them. To see what other old ADV licenses remain, just see http://www.theanimenetwork.com/Watch-Online

    --edit--

    The domain registration details are masked.
    The domain itself is a CNAME of http://adv-website-prod.elasticbeanstalk.com/
    www.sentaifilmworks.com is a CNAME of http://sentai-www.elasticbeanstalk.com/

    Oh, and if I'm reading the code right, the numbers are purely random.
