Coming Soon Topic?

Coming Soon Topic? - 09/05/11 01:15 AM

Just curious if you guys/gals would be interested in a "coming soon" topic.
In this topic we could post upcoming DVD/Blu-Ray anime (or similar stuff like Godzilla) release dates.

Of course this would be regulated to non-adult anime.

This would help you remember when a particular title is going to be released.

Instead of a weekly version (on another site), we could do a monthly version to save time.

I do this over on another forum, but nobody seems interested anymore.

So yes or no?

Oops forgot to mention this would only be for Region 1 (USA) releases.

It sounds good to me.
I do not know if I could contribute anything, but I am definitely interested in the concept.

It seems to me that it would be superfluous and redundant-it's already covered quite well at ANN and Fandom Post and countless other sites.

I would like to see more of that kind of content. I don't have time to surf many places any given day. I would like more info on new stuff down the road. I need to be a better informed buyer.

A very good start.
There are quite a few things there that I will check out.

Thank you, EricDent. smile

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/05/11 08:46 PM

Oh. You forgot, Burst Angel is also being released as a DVD in the classics line as well.
Wow. When I see it like this, there are so many good things coming out for sept.
All I'm getting this month is just Burst Angel (DVD classics line) and Black Blood Brothers (S.A.V.E.).
But next month Imma make a doozy of an order.
Mwa hahahahaha!
mostly due to fact that this month, I'll probably spend it playing Disgaea 4.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/05/11 11:45 PM

For some odd reason Burst Angel (DVD) was not listed.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/07/11 01:09 PM

Well apparently Burst Angel may have already been released, I am currently looking at it at Fry's.

Yep. I saw it at Barnes too. It's the Anime Classics line. BTW Burst Angel rules!

The release date was yesterday (9/6) according to Funimation's release schedule.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/07/11 02:28 PM

Well we kind of knew that the release date was 9/6.
Just mentioning it was not listed as a DVD release on that particular site (DVDaf).
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/13/11 11:26 PM

BTW just a slight update, that particular store may have had Burst Angel early, since IIRC it was out about a month ago.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/14/11 12:26 AM

TRSI does the early release thing for it's preorder customers sometimes too. I've had my copy of Mardock Scramble: The First Compression for a week now, but it's still listed as "preorder - not yet shipping" at TRSI.

I've had that on pre-order since July 5th, I just looked at my E-mail ( 7am Wednesday 09-14-11 ) and there is a Shipping Confirmation for Murdock Scramble: The First Compression

I preordered it nearly the moment I read it's description at TRSI. Sometimes you just know, ya know? I haven't watched it yet. I hope I like it. I wonder if there's a Second Compression.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/14/11 08:24 PM

Yes there is a Second Compression, it just came out in the theaters in Japan on September 3rd, 2011. So it might be a bit before we get it.

I know I mentioned this before, but it's rather easy to look up this info.

You don't even have to use Google, you can use any search engine.

Ah, thank you for the heads-up on that vital tidbit! I nearly bought it from the weekly specials but I'd definitely prefer to wait for the BR version (which isn't even listed for preorder yet).
Posted by: kiku

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/15/11 10:48 PM

Has anybody read the manga (Mardock Scramble)? Is it in english? Like most manga, is it even more hardcore than the anime?
Posted by: kiku

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/15/11 10:55 PM

The more I look at Balot on the cover of Mardock Scramble: The First Compression, the more she reminds me of Gally from Battle Angel (Alita).
Posted by: Gevin

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/16/11 11:26 AM

I think I read about it on Wikipedia or something.
The title certainly caught my eye, so I did a little research (mostly for art style and plot details) & came across the bluray info (which was vague).
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/17/11 03:17 AM

Not trying to discourage people, but this is just covering till the end of October currently.

Unless we want to add November into the mix.

BTW they did mention in the December solicitations (on ANN) that Strike Witches 2 was still not listed.

Also Birdy the Mighty is getting a full collection release.
Devil May Cry, & D Gray Man (season 1) are getting SAVE editions.
Master of Martial Hearts is getting a Classic Line (LOL).
And some other stuff.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/17/11 03:46 AM

Birdy was a great anime.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/17/11 10:56 AM

The tv series of Birdy The Mighty was an excellent followup to the originial ovas.
Posted by: stargates

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/17/11 11:15 AM

I've been putting off Birdy The Mighty until it came out in a complete collection. Seems the wait is over.
Posted by: kiku

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/17/11 02:37 PM

I was on the fence 'bout Birdy for a long while. It had an air of cheapness to it it seemed. It was the way the box was presented or something. Little did I know that once you've watched Birdy, you love the cover art. Birdy is an experience in and of itself. It really surprised me. I feel lucky to have discovered Birdy. It's tough to peg what the single most impressive facet of Birdy is. It's the whole package with this one. I guess if I had say which one thing really stood out, it would simply be the originality in it's execution; which brings us right back to the fact that it's the whole package Birdy The Mighty: Decode.

On the subject of stupid-Funimation has renamed Asobi Ni Ikuyo-Bombshells From The Sky to Cat Planet Cuties for us release-why not just call it Cat Plan 9 From Outer Space? That makes just as much sense-actually it sounds a lot better to me.

Aren't the "Bombshells" actually cat girls from Planet Catia?
ANN says that the Japanese title is [deleted], which Google translates as "I'm Going to play". If that is even close then it seems to me that "Cat Planet Cuties" makes as much sense as "Bombshells from the Sky."

Edit: I had to delete the Japanese title because the forum software apparently does not recognize the Japanese characters.

I've alreay got Utena pre-ordered! smile
And i'm going to pick up Aragami as well when it's release date nears.
Chaos Head & Heaven's Lost Property are a yes, a maybe for Rosario+Vampire,
and quite a few of those S.A.V.E.'s are looking mighty tempting now that if you time it just right you can score them for major cheapage.
The one's I'm most intrested in:
Mushishi - Complete Series - S.A.V.E.
Romeo X Juliet - The Complete Series - S.A.V.E.
Blassreiter - The Complete Series - S.A.V.E.
D.Gray-man - Season 1 Complete Set - S.A.V.E.
Any one have any thoughts on those bad boys?
Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/18/11 06:32 PM

Out of that group, I've only seen "Mushi Shi".

"Mushi Shi" is an unusual title. It is told as a series of separate stories that don't seem to be in any chronological progression. The stories play out almost like folk tales as reported by an entomologist/zoologist. The stories are slow-paced, but have an air of mystery or suspense about them that holds your interest. The visuals are beautiful, and the music matches the mood perfectly. It's a really good title, and I think you'll find it well worth the price.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/18/11 06:35 PM

Mushi-Shi is a must own series IMO. It's very episodic, so you can watch it at your leisure.

D.Gray-Man is a fun show similar to Soul Eater. It has a good mix of funny & action. I just hope that this does not mean we will never get any more episodes after season 2 (there are 52 more episodes to go cause there are 105 episodes).

Have not seen Romeo X Juliet, but it is based on the William Shakespere play (though from the preview looks like it's set in the future)

I don't think I saw Blasreister either, no clue if it's good or not.

It's not too bad of a watch, however it's not set in the future but more of a scifi/fantasy world. Worth checking out if you like that type of setting.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/20/11 01:27 AM

Is there any hope for a Hell Girl "complete series" DVD set? I've been intrigued by this anime for some time, although a box set would be preferable to single season (and half season) volumes.
Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/20/11 09:02 AM

A complete series set of "Hell Girl" would require that Funi allow their license of the first season to lapse, and then Sentai would have to pick up the first season license. It's possible that that could happen, but I don't know how much longer Funi's license will last.

Cause that last one on the list is from that label.

No. I think it has something to do with who prodused it.

No. They supposedly license "mature" anime, but not hentai. They do have at least one 17+ title, Papillon Rose, but they have other titles for younger viewers.

I think that Maiden Japan is part of Section 23.

Why don't you change your nom de plume to WTK?
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/20/11 10:38 PM

Um, cause I don't use Right Stuf to figure out what is coming soon.
Plus he/she usually does it a bit "early" so people will complain if a certain title is not coming out in that particular month.

I gave a very good statement that these dates are subject to change, which I don't think WTK has ever done. Sure I borrowed that Sentai/Section 23 info from his post, but at least I admit it.

BTW I use pretty much the same "handle" on every board I go to.
I know it's risky to use your real name as your user name, but IMO this just proves that what I type is what I truly think. Instead of just hiding behind some facade of a name.

So over on ANN, I'm EricDent. Gamefaqs is ericdent1 (look up my contributions), etc. So yes my real name is Eric Dent. Which is why I also like The Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy & Batman.

Not sure if these people are related to me or not, but there is a Fort Dent near Seattle, and his daughter married U.S. Grant (the President). Also the clock Big Ben was made by a Frederick Dent.

I'd love to order the Rozen Maiden collection as I never got the Geneon releases-but I have watched both of them. Only one thing stopping me-lack of funds-drat.

Besides $41.39 for a Movie!?!
Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/04/11 09:48 AM

If you think $42 is pricey for a movie, just think of what they were charging for "Wings of Honneamise". It came in a big package with both DVD and BD versions, priced at over $80. And separate versions were not available, it was $80 or nothing. :P Stupid.
Posted by: kiku

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/04/11 11:08 AM

D??? the combo packs! D??? them straight to h???!
Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/04/11 01:06 PM

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of combo packs - you get two copies in different formats for one low price (normally). "Wings of Honneamise" was bad because they were charging you $40+ for EACH format, and you couldn't buy them separately. I got them during a sale at RightStuf for around half the MSRP, and that was still $20 too much. Its no wonder the company Honneamise went out of business, grossly overcharging like that.
Posted by: kiku

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/04/11 01:43 PM

That may be the case, but I must say that their releases of Gun(Die)buster were nothing short of excellence.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/04/11 05:34 PM

Like I have said before, it seems that the DVD only version of Honneamise is pretty easy to find in used DVD stores (like HPB). I literally have seen a copy at 5 different locations just in the Austin area.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/07/11 06:13 PM

So again thanks to our friends over on ANN, there are a couple of new additions. These are not on DVDaf for some odd reason...

MazinKaiser SKL (Blu-ray) - 75 minutes - $24.99 - 12/6/11

The Twelve Kingdoms, Part 3 : A Great Distance in the Wind, The Sky at Dawn (Blu-ray) - 300 minutes - $44.99 - 12/13/11

Tweeny Witches: Complete Collection (Re-release) - 598 minutes - $49.99 - 1/10/12

All from Media Blasters.
Posted by: zrdb

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/08/11 07:14 AM

As much as I loved Junni Kokki (The 12 Kingdoms) it's really not worth picking it up on bluray. There are a lot of series that benefit little if any from the bluray treatment-case in point-Card Captor sakura-even though it was animated in 720P the artwork and character design were clearly made for standard definition. The character design and backgrounds just don't have enough detail to make a difference at higher resoultions.
Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/08/11 08:52 AM

Where did you find Cardcaptor Sakura on BD? Did they re-release it in Japan?
Posted by: zrdb

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/08/11 11:48 AM

It was re-released in japan on bluray a couple of years ago. They are a couple of subbed versions floating around the internet. The originial us dvds weren't really that hot video wise.
Posted by: kiku

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/11/11 09:03 AM

I would definitely be interested in checking out the Cardcaptor Sakura anime series (and 2 movies?), despite it being labeled as a "kids show". I mean, it's Clamp right? I've heard good things about the animation, something about a wide variety of outfits (costumes). Supposedly, the excellent animation is one of the points making Cardcaptor Sakura accessible (enjoyable) to adult audiences, despite the target audience being younger.

Warning: Word on the street is that there is a fabulously bad edit that was released North America for television. Keep your eyes open for this one. The editing was so bad that it cut the episode count nearly in half... fascists. Not only that, but I guess important plot points and character development were among the portions removed. This abomination was entitled "Cardcaptors" for those of you wanting to defend yourself.

Thankfully, Geneon also released Cardcaptor Sakura unedited. Sadly, Geneon is no more.
Posted by: zrdb

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/11/11 10:16 AM

Card Captor Sakura's demographic was 6 to 13 year old girls-but like a lot of japanese anime shows intended for young children it has some darker themes such as homosexuality, lesbianism (though never directly implied). But it is an excellent show that adults as well as children can enjoy. And the version that Nelvania butchered called Cardcaptor should be avoided like the plague.
Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/11/11 10:23 AM

Yes, Geneon released an uncut, sub-only version of CCS. At first, they were selling 14k copies per volume (iirc). Then they made the crucial mistake of holding a volume until the episodes on it had been aired. After that, their sales plunged to 4k copies per volume.

Lesson Geneon learned: Don't give anime fans a chance to change their minds, because if you do, they will, and they won't come back.

Lesson Geneon should have learned: Don't play stupid games with your releases. If your fans get the impression that you could drop the series at any time, they'll quit buying. Nobody wants to be left with an incomplete set in their collection. (If people get the impression that your series could be a bad investment, they'll move to curtail their losses.)

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/12/11 07:38 PM

Here is a bunch of early Funimation stuff for January 2012, these are apparently part of the sale...and were posted on ANN (WTK got the info from Right Stuf).

B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time: Complete Collection (Blu-ray / DVD Combo) - 300 minutes - $64.98 - 1/31/12

X (TV): Complete Collection (Classic Line) - 625 minutes - $39.98 - 1/3/12

There is a trailer (with the English voices) for that B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time show, and it looks pretty funny with a lot of fanservice.

Also seems that Funimation is going to go with combo packs for several shows.

Again quite a few SAVE titles.

As well as still no new info on Strike Witches 2.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/12/11 07:45 PM

B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time

These two I'll be getting when they come out.

My Bride is a Mermaid: Complete Collection

I might get these if I can get them for a good price.

Ugh,

I wish they would have released Phantom Requiem for the Phantom on BD out of the gate. It's one thing to re-buy stuff like Twelve Kingdoms that have been out forever... but if they were planning on doing this it should have been sooner.
Posted by: zrdb

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/13/11 01:47 PM

12 Kingdoms (Junni Kokki) is very good-but it'd be a hard sell to convince me to rebuy it on bluray. And most of the stuff on your list is meh. I've already watched B Gata H Kei, if I already didn't have Tenchi Muyo GXP I'd be tempted.Blah blah blah.

Although I do it from time to time, I really don't like pre-oredering.
I tend not to keep track of my spending, and you never know when right stuf is really going to ship said items, so I normally try to buy things around the time or a little after they come out.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 01/12/12 02:38 PM

YES !!!!! Golgo 13 DVD Collection 3
I didn't even know there was more Golgo, of course I’m all for more Golgo 13
I’ve got the Movies and Collections One & Two.

This sure makes me feel better after having to Cancel, Heavens Lost Property 2
And Strike Witches 2 ( for as short a time as possible, in the end they will be mine )

I’ve never heard of Infinite Stratos before, but I went to ANN and read up on it and
Infinite Stratos + Encore DVD Complete Collection, looks like a good one to me.
When I first saw the Title I thought it might be some kind of follow up to Stratos 4, not no.

Remember those are Manufactures Suggested Retail Prices, not the actual prices which tend to be a lot less (especially on Right Stuf).

The only things that go for full MSRP are cars (again there are exceptions).

Yes, but I don't see it listed at TRSI. Is that simply because the item is new and they have yet to fill out the description page? Furthermore, does that mean that I'll be receiving a CD soundtrack with my Infinite Stratos + Encore DVD order?

1.) Bingo! They just listed the titles yesterday. It takes Right Stuf a few weeks to add the description pages to new solicits.

2.) Yes! Both DVD and Blu-ray releases are getting the soundtrack. It's been confirmed on the cover art forum over at Fandom Post.

Ah, so they updated the item description. When I last looked at it, there was no description yet (ie no episode count).

http://www.rightstuf.com/1-800-338-6827/catalogmgr/YN7dRCeDy3uCByJtTK/browse/item/94165/4/0/0

It clearly says in the item description that it "contains episodes 1-13", so that's 325 minutes and not 175.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 01/16/12 02:58 PM

I'm so tempted to pick up Fushigi Yugi.
After Right Stuf's discounts it'll only be 38!
That's a steal!

Fushigi Yugi is a hoot-I have all of the originial Pioneer/Geneon release and wouldn't trade it for anything-BTW-if you like Yuu Watase's stuff you might want to track down and purchase Celestial Legend Ceres on dvd. It can be had quite cheaply.

I've got a Region 0 copy of Celestial Legend Ceres.
It's one of the Animes FYE won't buy from me,
a long with My Region 0 Copy of The Cowboy Bebop Perfect Sessions
and Region 0 copy of The Original Diry Pair OVA & MOVIE collection
( Come to think of it, I don’t think FYE has bought any of my Region 0 Anime )

Besides Region 0, I've taken the same Anime back to FYE several times before that would buy it.
( Supply and Demand and all that ) I’ve also got Anime Titles that I know they have Discontinued.

One of these Days I’ll get enough unwanted Anime that FYE won’t buy,
than I’ll make the trek to Wild&Wooly Video, and see if they’ll buy it.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 01/16/12 11:24 PM

Maybe they are smarter than they look at FYE.
I still spot bootlegs quite often at Half Price Books, so maybe try there.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 01/17/12 04:03 AM

Ive had friends sell at Half Price Books and they seem to take just about anything, FYE is alot pickier it seems. I only go to FYE for rare cd's though or when i get a gift card or two for there every holiday season. I havent gotten to the point where i want to sell my own stuff but my friends seem to have luck at Half Price for region 0 discs.

I'll say this much. I have the Cowboy Bebop Perfect Sessions box set. It cost me $160 back in 2002 (via Amazon) and those DVDs are all Region 1.

It's very rare to see Region 0 DVDs from a US anime company. I know CPM and AnimEigo made a few when they first started out making DVDs, but they quickly switched to Region 1.

Funimation is known for making multi-region (1,2,4) discs, but they are never Region 0.

Region 0 is a hallmark of hk anime dvds (some call them bootlegs-I don't)-I should know, at one point 60% of my anime dvd collection was composed of them. I got rid of a lot of them and replaced them with R1 dvds (at least the ones that were direct R1 rips-english dub and all)-but not because I was feeling guilty about buying them-but simply when you take a 6 disc R1 set and compress it down to 3 discs the video looks pretty crappy on a large screen tv (not that a lot of early anime dvds looked all that good video wise, anyway). I have a lot of things that never came over here (and probally never will) on hk dvds such as Denshin Mamotte Shugogetten (an Oh My Goddess wannabe that's good in it's own right) and the Rumic World Mermaid Forest ovas and a lot of other stuff. Lot's of people say that hks are inferior packaging wise-not true, I have a lot of hk sets that are simply beautiful and would put most R1 sets to shame. And where else are you going to get Sailor Moon-Sailor Stars on dvd over here? If you go to a****n and search for that title you'll see a review that I did a while ago.

So I'm super stoked for their release.

Not really seeing anything in May, that is okay though. As it gives me time to catch up on stuff I missed during big months. Plus June I will be getting hit hard by E3 for games.

I seem to recall seeing a DVD version offered on Madoka.
IIRC it had 3 volumes at about $40 each (you can also get Blu-Ray only for about $10 more).

Of course this is Aniplex we are talking about, so you might want to get them quick. I remember looking up the prices for Durarara over on the "A" site and since they were apparently limited editions as well the prices went through the roof...

It's totally worth the price B-dub.
It comes with some very nice post cards, an art booklet with interviews with the cast, and a sound track...

The soundtrack sounds like the only bonus that I would really appreciate.
I would love a shotglass, a regular glass, a mini statue/model, or even a small plush/beanie-baby. You know,.. Something that I can casually have out in the open for people to either use or marvel at.

I watched a trailer earlier today. I think I'm going to order the plain Blu releases. The series looks amazingly deep.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 03/15/12 05:58 PM

PMMM is no ordinary magical girl anime. It is a dark deconstruction of the magical girl genre. Based on the pictures that I've seen from it, it is brutal, bloody, and horrific. I'm sure that that is why it has garnered so much attention, and the attention is why it got a dub.

As to why they didn't dub Blue Exorcist, I have no idea.

It's still a magical girl anime. Dressing it up in blood and horror doesn't really change what it really is. it's still 12 episodes of little girls on my screen. At least Media Blasters magical girl anime is with witches.

Because every magical girl anime brought over here has been a fail. They already say the majority of buyers are guys. The manga says it's for older guys...I'm not sure how underage girls are aimed to guys that age. Shonen anime has just been proven to sell more, look at Bleach, BE just isn't long-running like Bleach, and at least the manga is on the US market.

Indeed! PMMM is a Seinen focused title, which do really well up here.

Although anime companies avoid talking about it. They all have admit that they keep track of the fansub viewership and PMMM was one of the most viewed.

Quote:

Low fansub views and the manga sales have been pretty average from what I can tell. I can see why Aniplex didn't want to take the risk.

Not all Shonen titles are popular. Just look at Case Closed, which I'm really bummed about.
Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 03/15/12 09:47 PM

Hm. Not sure how you'd go about proving your assertion that every magical girl anime from "Sailor Moon" to "Tweeny Witches" and beyond was a failure (You have sales numbers and break even points for every one of them?), but I can still think of one reason that PMMM might get a dub while Blue Exorcist didn't, and you just brought it up. Length. PMMM is 12 episodes, while Blue Exorcist is 25. That means that it would have cost more than twice as much to dub Blue Exorcist, which means twice as much risk for Aniplex. So, if it crashes, it hurts twice as bad.

Who knows? If BE sells as well as you think it will, maybe Aniplex will give it a dub later on, like Sentai does to some of its more popular titles.
Posted by: Vata Raven

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 03/15/12 10:18 PM

Sailor Moon, at least it has everything balled up into one. But it clearly didn't do well enough for someone to save it. And not to forget, the maker of the manga hated how it was edited like crazy over here to make it for kids. She's refusing it to be brought to the US, she's bitter about the past work.

And Case Closed, it's just a never ending series about detective work, it has no real plot purpose...it's like One Piece. You can pick up at any arc and it'll make since to you. I don't blame Funimation for not dubbing all of those 650+ episodes. It would've been better if they just dubbed the movies.

CCS is even a CLAMP tile, as far as I know, every other CLAMP anime has been brought to us. Is CCS, no, it's not even being sold at Madman anymore and they had all 70 episodes.

BTW Pani Poni Dash did have a bit of Magical Girl in Bohemi.
Cardcaptor Sakura was released in the US as sub-only, its just really hard to find them (plus it also was realeased as Cardcaptors, which really sucked apparently).

Also though they are not anime I am pretty sure these were popular (especially since they rereleased them on DVD).

They just said Powerpuff Girls, there was no Z added, making it the original American one that was made for Cartoon network. And CCS, had a full proper dub, Madman had it, they had all 70 episodes, that was the only place that had them, and they let it go OOP. The edited version sucked, the US never got to see the un-edited edition fully dubbed.

And She-Ra isn't magical girl...she knew how to take care of herself. She's a freakin' war princess, after all. She can't be some weak little girl.

Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 03/16/12 02:40 AM

You seem to be saying that if a title isn't kept in print in perpetuity, it is a failure. I think that definition is a little narrow. As I indicated before, I wouldn't label any anime that at least broke even as a failure.

There are other considerations besides past sales that might keep an American distributor from bringing back a series. The biggest such consideration would be the necessity of getting all the different people or companies that hold rights to different facets of the anime (music, animation, etc.) to agree to grant you the rights. In some cases, no one can establish who has the rights, so bringing the anime back is impossible.

Another possibility is that the rights are available, but they are priced so high that no American distributor thinks that they can make enough in sales to justify the expense.

And there were a few anime that were given such short runs that I'm not sure whether it's fair to classify them as failures. Lyrical Nanoha was only on the store shelves for a little over a year, and Familiar of Zero wasn't available even that long. Most anime licenses run for 5 to 7 years, which gives a company a lot more time to make back its investment.


Edit: You're mistaken about Uta Kata. It was released. It was not dubbed. Are you also saying that any anime that is not released with a dub is automatically a failure?
Posted by: zrdb

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 03/16/12 08:22 AM

All I can say is that usually I only buy dubbed anime but if I like a series well enough and it's only released subbed then I'll get it.

"Charles! You're so naive." - Magneto (X-Men)

That's the first thing that came into my mind, when I read those two sentences.

The manga is currently the best selling property up here by a landslide and the anime sold extremely well when ADV had it. It's not that none of the anime companies want it, it's Toei that's preventing it. Funimation, Media Blasters and Sentai all stated that they want the title, but Toei isn't budging.

I'm pretty sure if they sold well enough, someone would've already recused them.

That's because Clamp wants an arm and a leg for the license on their flagship title.

Puni-Chan did pretty good in sales, so it got a dub.

Magic Knight Rayearth is one of their highest selling titles along with Rurouni Kenshin.

That's the first thing that came into my mind, when I read those two sentences.

The manga is currently the best selling property up here by a landslide and the anime sold extremely well when ADV had it. It's not that none of the anime companies want it, it's Toei that's preventing it. Funimation, Media Blasters and Sentai all stated that they want the title, but Toei isn't budging.

Quote:
And not to forget, the maker of the manga hated how it was edited like crazy over here to make it for kids. She's refusing it to be brought to the US, she's bitter about the past work.

Oh Really?

Anime and manga are two different things. Did you see how messed up the edited version of SM was? Do you blame her for hating the US for screwing up the series. Not only did they change the names, they also edited the dialog, and they went out of their way to hide all the gays and lesbians in the show. Yeah, Toei isn't giving it to us because the manga creator doesn't want it brought over to us. Hence forth, she's bitter with the effed up job we did with it before.

Yeah, its not that long ago that they had full season sets available for sale which were uncut, uncensored, and sub-only. Of course the last season Sailor Stars was not included that I am aware of.

I saw them all at Sakuracon in one of the larger DVD selling booths.
A friend of mine picked up Wedding Peach from that spot, and I grabbed Megazone 23.

There are other considerations besides past sales that might keep an American distributor from bringing back a series. The biggest such consideration would be the necessity of getting all the different people or companies that hold rights to different facets of the anime (music, animation, etc.) to agree to grant you the rights. In some cases, no one can establish who has the rights, so bringing the anime back is impossible.

Another possibility is that the rights are available, but they are priced so high that no American distributor thinks that they can make enough in sales to justify the expense.

And there were a few anime that were given such short runs that I'm not sure whether it's fair to classify them as failures. Lyrical Nanoha was only on the store shelves for a little over a year, and Familiar of Zero wasn't available even that long. Most anime licenses run for 5 to 7 years, which gives a company a lot more time to make back its investment.


Edit: You're mistaken about Uta Kata. It was released. It was not dubbed. Are you also saying that any anime that is not released with a dub is automatically a failure?

I didn't see this Uta Kata listed, so yeah, that's why I said it wasn't released. And yeah, I personally feel that anything that's brought over in the English speaking part of the world, it should be put into our language. It'll have people thinking, "Are we sure we want to dub this or not?" and not have them bring over some cheap title and dubbing it because they got it at a bargain price for the license.

Like I'm sure Funimation is only taking the time to dub live-action movies because the guy most likely got them for dirt cheap. If that's the case, they just need to save their money and invest into something worth people's time and money, like 07 Ghost or whatever.

Did you see the costs of several of the anime that the former ADV paid for stuff?

I know they were probably highly inflated in price, but some may have been spot on in prices.

So if you think licences are cheap, you need to do some research.

Not only did they change the names, they also edited the dialog,...

Toei isn't giving it to us because the manga creator doesn't want it brought over to us. Can you give us a source (like a link to an article) that supports this statement? If this is true, it would go a long way towards explaining why we can't seem to get a license for a re-release over here.

Oh, I know they're no cheap, but from what I get, since they're not doing bidding wars anymore, they can be about maybe 50grand maybe less. That would be even more of an excuse to be picky what is brought over here and take the time to dub it. If you're going to spend that kind of cash on a project, best make sure it's work it and dub it. I mean, we're not the only English speaking country for crying out loud, surly they can market it other countries.

Wasn't it DIC, not ADV who did all the changes for the Sailor Moon dub in the early '90s?

Yes, I did! I also saw ADV release an unedited version of the first two seasons and Geneon released unedited versions of season 3 and 4.

She never hated the US, she was just upset with how her work was treated.

Miyazaki was the same way on how Disney treated his movies (Castle in the Sky, Kiki Delivery Service) back in the early 90s. However, thanks to Pixar's founder, Miyazaki was able to forgive and start a new venture with Disney. This time all of his movies have been left uncut.

It's the same thing for the mangaka of Sailor Moon. Although, DIC butchered the title pretty good, they made it right by teaming up with ADV and had them release an uncut version of the title.

BTW, the mangaka doesn't have much control over the anime, that's up to Toei. What's causing the hold up is the ridiculous license fees that they want for each episode. They are pretty much at DBZ caliber from what I've been reading.

Ah. My bad. I made the incorrect assumption that since ADV released the DVDs, they also did the editted-for-TV version.

DIC had the first two seasons, as ADV dubbed seasons 3 & 4, subbing the rest. If you noticed, they go though 3 different VAs though out the series with most the mains, or at least SM had 3 different ones.

And season 5 wasn't dubbed because of the sex changes the Sailor Stars do. Them turning female to male and male to female. But there are at least 1 gay couple, 1 lesbian couple, and a few stray gays and lesbians. If they were gay males they just said they were women in the edited version.

http://sailormoonforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=18262 And that has a link explaining why we are having issues. Because the maker wants everything to be to the original, making it hard for people to dub it.

Censorship/editing is one of the many pitfalls an artist must endure if they want their art to reach the masses instead of a select few. Once in awhile though, as in the aforementioned Myazaki case, their work becomes embraced by the public enough to warrant reintegration of the original source material (putting the edited stuff back). It warms the cockles of my heart to hear of Myazaki weathering the storm and reaping the rewards. We can only hope that many other artists might be so lucky.

I'm rootin' for 'em.

I am aware of at least one "sex change" that DIC did. They made Zoicite a girl instead of a guy. Cause he loved the main bad guy.

No, no, Kunzite (man with long silver hair) and Zoisite (the brunette with the ponytail) were lovers, but Zunzite was just given a woman's voice to say it was a girl. Figheyes was another gay turned woman. Uranus and Neptune were turned into cousins, at least in the dub, it's pretty open in the 5th season. I guess the sub goes with it better, but you can still edits sub scripts. So, who the hell knows all the changes unless you speak fluent Japanese.

OK, I guess I was wrong. Though to be fair, I only caught random episodes when it was playing on TV.

BTW not sure if this means anything, but the Amazon site has a listed date for Strike Witches 2 as Dec. 31, 2012...

Media Blasters doesn't recode and reduce disc counts like Funimation does. Too expensive for them, since the process is outsourced.

It'll will most likely be 7 discs in a mini-brick (1 inch) or Stackpak (1 inch). I'm leaning towards mini-brick myself, since John wasn't happy with the Stackpaks.

Hmmmm, I may be able to live with that, I currently have my collection condensed down[
into a 1 inch wide case.

But having the same size in a nice Manufacturer Cover Art Case would be nice.
I can sell my individual releases to fyeto recoup some money,
and if the price lowers on the Complete Collection, well that would be nice as well.

As always, thanks for the feedback Joelgrin

Does anyone know what the make up of this is going to be ?…
I mean, is it just going to be 7 disc’s in a 1 inch wide DVD Case or Crappak ?…
Or will it be 4 disc’s in a 14mm ( standard 1 disc size Case ) wide case ?…
Or maybe even ( I dare say ) a 14mm wide 7 disc Case ?…( 7 & 8 disc 14mm wide cases are out there )

Anyone ?...
grin*I'm looking at you joelgundam01*

Media Blasters doesn't recode and reduce disc counts like Funimation does. Too expensive for them, since the process is outsourced.

It'll will most likely be 7 discs in a mini-brick (1 inch) or Stackpak (1 inch). I'm leaning towards mini-brick myself, since John wasn't happy with the Stackpaks.
I have a somewhat unrelated question. If a product is listed at RightStuf with the term brick in the title or description, does that mean that it will not be a Stackpak? I recently ordered "Berserk Complete Collection Brick" and am hoping that it will have hinged inserts and not a post.

Correct! TRSI usually notes when the item is a Stackpak or not.

I can sell my individual releases to fyeto recoup some money,
and if the price lowers on the Complete Collection, well that would be nice as well.

Personally, I don't recommend upgrading to the new set, unless you are upgrading to the Blu-ray version. Media Blasters DVD cases have been getting really crappy/cheap/flimsy in design. Even if they don't use a Stackpak, don't be too surprised if you get a floater or two.

Their Blu-ray cases on the other hand are really sturdy, but that's because of Sony's requirements with Blu-ray releases in general.

That reminds me, it's probably a good time to update the coming soon list.
Since it's almost August already, and the current list is almost caught up.

Please let me know if I forgot something.

Will post the list a bit later (it's easier to do at the library).

I'm glad to see that Funi is going to re-release "Ai Yori Aoshi" soon, but I am a bit disturbed by the cover art and the advertizing. They make Aoi look like a tramp or hooker, which isn't her at all.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 07/23/12 07:39 PM

Oblivion Island-Haruka And The Magic Mirror is a title I fell in love with after I watched it fansubbed at least twice-it's basically a kids tale that is good enough to keep an adult hooked.
Posted by: BWBODDY

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/16/12 09:41 PM

I just noticed that they are re-releasing the "edited" KITE.

The first time I saw KITE it was the edited version, and at the time I didn’t know anything about KITE.
But I could tell it seemed edited when I watched it, not long after that I learned about the other version......
Once I saw the "unedited" one, the whole thing flowed much better, and it made more sense.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/16/12 10:35 PM

Yeah I did not have it on the list, due to the confusion with the adult version.
I also did not include any other adult title (though there really are not that many).
Posted by: zrdb

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 09/16/12 10:44 PM

Gotta disagree-the edited version is much better than the "director's cut"-the 4 or 5 minutes of hard core porn that are thrown into the story simply don't make any sense and disrupt the flow of the plot.

This is based on what info they have on DVDaf.

I've never heard of the Dawn OVAs, but the last I heard, episode 10 hadn't even been shown in Japan yet. I'm sure Funi will bring 9 and 10 over as soon as they can.

Well they may or may not be Ova's, in wiki I saw 3 episodes under the Title.

+ a whole bunch of months after that before a western release, AKA don't expect it to be buyable from Rightstuf before 2014 I guess...

"video game" referring to the visual novel or to something else?

Samurai Pizza Cats - The Complete Collection

I just checked it on the RIGHTSTUF! site, it's says it's SUBBED not DUBBED

EDIT
Okay, ANN does show a English Dub Cast..
BUT if that's the case why is it only being SOLD as a SUB only at RIGHTSTUF! ???
Posted by: kiku

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 04/05/13 10:23 AM

That is because Eastern Star has licensed the original uncut source material (Legendary Ninja Cats) that the edited American version (Samurai Pizza Cats) drew from.

So can the existing English Dub version be had at all ?
I didn't see it on Amazon, but I haven't looked elsewhere yet...

Or does an English Dub DVD of it even exist !?!

EDIT
I’m starting to get the feeling that Companies are actually forgoing the English Dub more and more.
And just relying on the Fans who would buy the Sub.

( or is it just me thinking this because I’m a Dub Only guy ? )

They are releasing out both the edited dub version (Samurai Pizza Cats) and the unedited Japanese version (Kyatto-Ninden Teyandee).

Samurai Pizza Cats will be dubbed only, while Kyatto-Ninden Teyandee will be sub only.

Samurai Pizza Cats is planned for a July release, but the actual release date hasn't been determined (not solicited) yet. Hence, why Right Stuf doesn't have it listed.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 04/05/13 11:27 PM

I didn't know what topic to post this in. I didn't know if it would warrant it's own topic but... is there any chance of this happening?
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 04/06/13 01:46 AM

Well according to that site, yes there is a third season of that.
It hasn't aired in Japan yet, so it will be a bit before we get it.

If the other 3 parts sold well, you can bet Funi will grab that as well.

As usual all the info I get is from Filmaf.com.
If there is something cancelled or moved to a different date that site usually does not show it.
Mostly cause the info comes from contributors (I did a couple myself).

As for the Samurai Pizza Cats thing, I did not know they were doing separate releases. So I thought the familiar name would help you recognize it.
Posted by: SD Maruko-kun

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 04/06/13 08:22 AM

...just making sure people don't buy the wrong thing... wink
They are doing seperate SPC and KNT releases because AFAIK there was some editing done to the dub video and 2 episodes weren't even dubbed at all.

I guess they could have pulled a "Robotech Perfect Collection VHS" (seperate dub and sub episodes on the same medium) , but they probably thought too few people would be willing to pay the higher price for such a combined set...

No idea. Maybe they hit a bump in the road or maybe the Japanese companies are planning for something like a fall release and don't want to start hyping just yet?..

I would say good. Sentai picked up season 1. As I am sure you already knew, and if it did sale well then no reason to think they won't jump on season 2.

Both of those are brand new shows, that just started airing in Japan. Though the 2nd one Flowers Of Evil has a manga over here that is put out by Vertical. I believe it is doing pretty well, so there are fans over here for that series. I would guess that helps it out for an anime release.

RUIN EXPLORERS

I’ve got the 2004 ADV release of it, I've watched it about 3 times so far and I really enjoyed watching it ever time.
There doesn’t seem to be anything new or different about it listed here, that isn't on the 2004 release.
( and it still has the English VA Commentary, unlike the re-release of Martian Successor Nadesico )

*I or someone will probably bring this next part up again after it gets released,
but since I’m Posting about it I thought I’d go ahead and say it*


If anyone buys this new one and can compare it to the older one, well…..
Chime in and let us know if it looks/sounds any better than the older release.

Oh and let us know which Language it defaults to. ( that's a Pet Peeve of mine )

edit:
Granted the Language default issue is more of a Sentai thing

Oops, My Bad, you are right ! blush
( thank you Joel )
Once again, I’m thinking one thing and saying another.

I was thinking of the Re-Mastered Dirty Pair when I said that.
And it is Nozomi not Sentai.

Sentai is the one I wish would Dub more of it’s releases…
grin

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 04/22/13 10:23 PM

Sentai dubs pretty much everything bluray. ...& subs most everything that is DVD only.
Nozomi rarely dubs anything.. they have a few, but I don't think they see much of a future in it for themselves.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 06/13/13 10:54 PM

Yeah, it's apparently a new movie (says 2013 as release date).
First I had ever heard of it.

Also any missing titles are due to Filmaf.com not having them listed (remember it's an editable site maintained by fans).

According to the Robotech Wiki site, the Love Live Alive is a Mospeada movie. Also almost all the original voices from that particular portion of Robotech will be voicing the roles they played in that. With the exception of Dana, since that actress passed away.

Speaking of voice actors, a woman came in to work the other day & checked out at a register nearby. While I was checking out some folks with some anime DVDs. She mentioned she used to be a voice actor. Said she was a mother on Wedding Peach, and some other "mother" type roles (mentioned Final Fantasy as well). She said she even had her own IMDB page...
Darn, I totally forgot to get her name!

Was it Marla Kanoff maybe? She fits the profile you give and would be in the same area you're located.

I don't know, I have never seen Wedding Peach.
I also assume she did more than one show, since she mentioned Final Fantasy (most likely Unlimited).

That person only has one role listed on IMDB.

I looked up some possibilites under FF: Unlimited and narrowed it down to 4 possibilites:
Samantha Inoue-Harte
Lainie Fraiser
Claire Hamilton ( longshot since she wasn't listed under both Wedding Peach and Unlimited)
And Katie Gillette

Hope this helps wink

Use the Got Anime list of pre-orderable titles to fill in the gaps... wink

Thanks for the info.
Yeah, based on reading that, they're hacking a Mospeada official music video into a fully fledged movie. It's a dumb idea, but I've now pre-ordered it anyway... crazy
I'm glad AnimEigo had the good sense (and lack of money?) to not attempt such a feat for the Bubblegum Crisis' Hurricane Live music videos... wink

Funimation is still streaming the new episodes. So I figure the next set will be put out eventually. Though I'm doubting the reason has anything to do with being afraid of getting ahead of the manga as that's at least 10 volumes ahead of the anime.

Well, Discotek doesn't do their own dubs; they only use pre-existing dubs, so I guess for there to be a dub they'd have to release the "Captain Harlock and the Queen of a Thousand Years" version?.. (for which they'd probably need to get the rights to Queen Millennia first, which I wouldn't mind... wink )

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 06/28/13 10:01 AM

Well, the COVER ART is up for the Oct 1 2013 Godannar release.
It’s still 5 disc’s, does anyone know if they’ve put it in a thinner Case ?
I’ve got the older release, the one with the 5 individual thin cases in the Art Box
I put them in a smaller Case and just scanned and shrunk to fit the Cover Art to the new case.

Here it is MY OLDER RELEASE IN SMALLER CASE after I’ve scanned and resized the Cover Art to fit a Standard sized Case
But I’m all for Original Releases with thier Original Cases & Covers, ( so long as it's a Starndard Sized Case )
If this new one is in the smaller standard sized Case ( and it isn't a Crappack ) than.....
I’d at least have to put it in my Wish list if I didn't buy it outright

edit:
I do like the fact the the Cover Art isn't just a reuse from an older release ( unless I'm mistaken )
Posted by: kiku

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 06/28/13 01:53 PM

I believe that I have a different edition than the one you have; because none of the slimcases, nor the chipboard box match what you displayed. So no; I don't think that you are mistaken, it is probably not a reuse. Having a complete series box myself, I don't think that I can justify the purchase; but d??? I want to.

Please note that the cover art is "not final" and it'll most likely change to some degree before it releases.

Quote:

I can almost guarantee you that it'll be a StackPak and it will most likely be 4 discs for the series and an extras disc. Sentai is treated as a different company and they can't use ADV's old masters because of it, so they'll need to re-author the discs.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 06/28/13 02:01 PM

If that's the case (See what I did there?), then I know that I won't be picking it up; as I have a Complete Collection on my shelf. Apparently, there were some pretty cool goodies included with the original volumes. If they'd included them, or anything exciting in the special features; my hand may have been forced. Crappacks, yuck. sick

I'm sorry to hear that B Dub. It would've been a nice birthday present for you to find out that the rerelease of Harlock was sub and dub. If it's any consolation, I always buy sub and dub whenever it's available to show the industry that's what I (we) want.

Money talks and; well, you know what walks. I got your back, and J.E.S.'s as well. That's why I support sub and dub DVD's and Blu-rays whenever possible. If I'm not mistaken, she likes subs. Being of the VHS (Betamax) generation, I have a marked appreciation for the dual language nature of DVD's and Blu-rays. I personally like dubs, no matter how bad; and in the VHS era, some were bad. Then again, some were really good. Irregardless, I think that dual language should be the standard for the medium; especially considering solid media has had the capability since the advent of the DVD. I do however, understand that it's not always technological reasons for a lack of a dub; it's often monetary. When my backs against a wall, and the studio releasing a title can't afford to pay a dubbing crew; I'll go for the subbed title to show my support for the title itself. Sometimes, enough support for a subbed title, warrants a dubbed release later on. Sorry, got to rambling.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 08/14/13 03:07 PM

You're not mistaken Kiku.
I can't hear very well, so subs are pretty much a must for me.
I could blast the vol to high heaven but... I'm (somewhat) considerate of others. smirk

I use "TV EARS" all the time.
I don't watch TV with the volume turned up at all, I just use the TV EARS.

It puts the sound where it belong, in my ears ( and at the volume I want ) and everything is soooo clear

PS
I even bought a pair for my wife, at her request ( she really needs them ) but now she won’t use them.
So I close her door, and she hates that.
But if I'm in the front room watching an Anime while wearing a pair of TV EARS and I can hear the TV in the back room instead of mine….
Well, I think I have a right to close your door

Well, I have finally decided I'm going to grab all those gorgeous, colorful Japanese Ghibli Blu-ray releases, of which there are currently 14 available, with Pom Poko coming in November. I'm going to order 8 of them now from Amazon Japan, and then the other 7 when Poko is released - then I'll be all caught up until the spring releases... Now I just gotta decide which 8 titles to get first!

I'll probably order all the titles that are not yet available on US Blu-ray, to compliment my current Disney Ghibli collection, and then pick a few of my favorites from the classics.

Now where's that dang credit card at...?? grin

I'm not sure what you saw on the VIZ website. The only Lagrange-related product that I saw advertised over there was season 1. The only reference that I saw for season 2 was on the page where you could view the series. I took that only to mean that season 2 was now available for viewing.

I, too, am waiting for the second season to come out for purchase, so if you saw something that lead you to believe that it might be available soon, then I'd like to see it, too. smile

Everything that has been posted in the past maybe out by now
(barring any delays or future release dates)

To ease the lag, I will try to do until December.
As usual all dates are subject to change, and they can add stuff at any time.
Also as usual all this data is from Filmaf

Decided to spice it up to make it somewhat easier to read.
I decided to add the adult titles under spoiler tags.

Video Games are always getting Street Dates broken as well. I remember people getting Resident Evil 6 a good month before it's release and that is a big AAA Capcom title.

If you call’em up and ask them if they could do a Partial Shipment and send you the HOTD Ova‘s,
I’m sure they would, they done it for me before.

It's totally cool. I am not in a rush to get it, as I watched it in 2011 fansubbed when I thought Sentai wouldn't release it over here. That is one reason why I ordered it with two items that weren't set to come out till Dec and Jan

Edit: The only thing on that order I want quickly is the one with the further release date Omamori Himari Vol 11. Though thanks for the heads up for future reference. I do try to set my orders so the thing I want the most can get to me quickly though.

If you don't already have Ninja Nonsense Collection yet, than you really need to get it.

Divergence Eve + Misaki Chronicles Complete Collection Is another Anime that shouldn't be overlooked.

And the same goes for Godannar Complete Collection

I've heard Divergence Eve isn't as fanservice heavy as the cover art leads you to believe. In fact I have read that the only fanservice for most episodes is the OP/ED. Is this true?

Hmm, yeah no Fanservice to speak of ( as far as bare tops and panty shots go )
except for some nice looking upper bodies and form fitting outfits.
I just think it's a good Anime and the Girls aren't bad to look at ether, I just love Misaki grin

It has it's fanservice momets. Like so much anime from that era, the cover art is misleading as to the level of fanservice though. In addition to the excellent outfits that B Dub mentioned, Divergence Eve features gravity (reality) defying boob physics reminiscent of Amazing Nurse Nanako. I sure wish Nanako would get a rerelease.

An Anime about a girl that does Hentai VA work, and it’s listed as 60 minutes long.
Sounds about right since most Hentai are listed at 60 minutes.

Sorry it’s just the first thing I thought of when I saw the run-time was 60 minutes

Indeed. smile However, I have never heard a whisper about anyone licensing it. It's such an odd title (it would have been fine for children if it wasn't for all the nudity) that I can't figure whose catalog it might fit in.

Well, it's definitely yet another anime title I have never heard of, anime noob that I still am - something else I'll have to look up and check out... I can't keep up, guys - stop it already, lol!!
Posted by: t-Roy

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/09/13 02:32 PM

Ok, so this isn't really an anime title that's coming soon, but it is anime related...

Back in June I made a $145 pledge to the Time of EVE Kickstarter campaign for the English Dub Blu-ray, so I could get all the pledge awards for that level - which included an "Are You Enjoying the Time of EVE?" coffee cup/saucer set and a numbered EVLEND coffee canister, both of which I really wanted badly. I drink a lot of coffee, and I also have a coffee maker setup in the snack bar area of my basement theater room, so what I really wanted was to have multiple cup/saucer sets so I could serve coffee to a small group of guests during my movie nights.

So, I finally decided to email Pied Piper/Directions/Studio Rikka a couple weeks ago and just ask them outright about obtaining more cup/saucer sets and canisters, and they replied back telling me they did have extra pieces available for purchase if I was interested in more. So, I ordered 5 additional cup/saucer sets and 1 additional canister. They sent me a Paypal invoice last night and told me they would ship the extra pieces along with my pledge award pieces, together in one package. The cups and canisters are shipping from Japan, and since it will be a fairly heavy package I paid a pretty price for international shipping - but I still think it was all worth it! cool

"Are You Enjoying the Time of EVE" Coffee Cup/Saucer Set

EVLEND Coffee Canister

I also found out that the cups and canister awards are shipping to the pledgers early - between October 15-30, which is 3-4 months before the ToE Blu-rays will be ready to ship. So, I will actually have my 6 cup/saucer sets and 2 canisters (to hold different coffee bean varieties in) on their way in just a few weeks. Lol, maybe I'll have to rename the snack bar area in my theater room "Time of EVE" and turn it into a cafe instead! Awesome! laugh

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/09/13 11:51 PM

Theming your snack bar is a great idea. Your theater is already apple of everyone's eye here at Anime Today. I know I'm jealous. An anime related theme to your snack bar would be a way to show people your interest in anime.
Posted by: t-Roy

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 10/10/13 09:08 AM

Well, I'll work on the theme idea a bit, and see what I come up with. I don't really have room in the snack bar area for any cafe tables, though... I need a bigger basement, lol...

Got another email from Pied Piper yesterday; I had told them in my last email that I may want to purchase more pieces in the future, but that I would wait and let other pledgers to have a chance to order extras first... I didn't want to look greedy! blush. They said there were a few other pleders requesting more pieces, but no one wanted nearly as many as I did, lol... They also were nice enough to tell me my current order was going to ship on October 21st, so if I wanted to order more pieces and save on shipping, to order before then so they can ship them all in one package. So, maybe I'll go ahead and order two more cup/saucers to make a full set of 8, and perhaps a third coffee canister. That'll be about another $40 or so, though. Hey, may as well take advantage of the opportunity, may not get another chance like this one!

EDIT: Well that's what I did - added 2 more cup/saucers and 1 more canister, so I'm now getting 8 cup/saucers and 3 canisters total... that's gonna be a pretty big box coming from Japan... eek

Hi t-Roy.
So the Blu-ray for Time of Eve will be released around February?
I am not a backer, but I am interested buying this version with an english dub and various subtitles when it comes out.
Was this date given by Pied Piper/Directions/Studio Rikka?
Thanks in advance,

Thanks in advance,

minino - The Time of EVE English Dub Blu-ray is shipping to all the Kickstarter contributors in January-February. General Public release will most likely be later in the year, I had heard mention of maybe a summer time-frame - but I really have no definite news on any general release at this time. I do know there is going to be a slew of different languages included for subtitles - at least a dozen, I believe.

Nope, FUNi still doesn't have the license to it as far as we know.

Each episode is a separate license. I heard they dub Ultimate before they even announce that they have the episodes. If I'd guess I'd say middle to the end of 2014 at the very earliest.

Well apparently I forgot some stuff.
I guess getting my info from a site edited by other people isn't always accurate.

So on 2/11/14

You can add these to the Blu-Ray section:

Strike Witches: Season 1 Collection S.A.V.E Edition
Strike Witches: Season 2 Collection S.A.V.E Edition

Sad times when a fun show like this goes to the SAVE pile...
Well now maybe I can re-buy season 1 & put it in that box that fits both Blu-Ray versions (still assuming these are Combo Packs).

Also on 2/27/14 we get the first volume of Star Blazers 2199.

I'd rather a series go into the SAVE pile than languish in relative obscurity where the only copies left are massively overpriced scalper copies.
As for Strike Witches going SAVE I can only assume it's because it has a very negative reputation amongst certain fan groups. I haven't seen it, so I wouldn't know if said reputation was warranted, but like I said it's very negative.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 12/29/13 11:05 PM

Those fans can shove it!

This show is very good, full of fun characters, great action, and of course lots of panties flying in your face.
Yes it has some rather blatent loli nudity, but once you get past that it's such a fun show.

I wish Funimation had got the darn movie!
Seriously what's up with that?

Great dub as well.

I agree that it's better to go the SAVE route than obscurity, but the anime classics route would have been nicer.
That brings up a question, are they even doing that line anymore?

Seriously they need to bring back the Viridian Collection thing.

As far as I remember it wasn't a group of anime fans that blasted Strike Witches it was one of those conservative groups like One Million Moms or something. Said they wanted it taken off the shelves because it was promoting pedophilia or something equally stupid.
At least that's the idea I got from the fan posts over on Nationstates.
For the Anime Classics, the most recent ones they've added to that line were the first season of Hetalia and East of Eden. So I think its safe to say they haven't added anything there in a long while. The line is either non-existent at this point or close enough to be declared DOA.

No kidding. Where's that movie? As far as the S.A.V.E.s are concerned, they're a steal. I believe that they are identical to the original Combo Pack releases save for the the green label, but at 15 bucks; who could say no to Yoshika? (See what I did there?)

I don't know about that. The Armitage III and Haibane Renmei Anime Classics weren't released that long ago. Besides, Funi is still promoting the line on their website.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 12/30/13 01:19 AM

For some reason I was thinking those had gotten Classics treatment awhile ago. I've had Haibane Renmei for quite a few years now after all. But I don't think titles are very likely to reach Classics status or at least compared to how likely they are to end up in the SAVE pile.

Yes, it has to do with pre-order demand for the January limited theatrical release in the US, so they're postponing the release date for the disc media to milk as much from theater sales as possible. This is either from Funimation's website or Facebook page, from December 18th (This is copied from another forum):

"It has been announced today, that due to the overwhelming theatrical demand for Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, the release date for the Blu-ray and DVD, Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo, has been delayed to a TBD date in 2014.

Once a new release date has been decided we will announce this information on our website http://www.funimation.com/. Evangelion: 3.0 hits theaters beginning January 10, 2014. To look for a theater in your area please refer to: http://www.elevenarts.net/evangelion3.theater.html"

Well, I'm SOL - the nearest theater to me showing it is in Manville NJ, probably over 3 hours drive from home... but I'm not chompin' at the bit to see it anyway. I already got a fansub months ago for 3.33 that I haven't watched, because I didn't even see 2.22 yet (mecha is not very high on my list, you know!). So, if I ever get around to it, I'll get around to it, which I doubt I will... blush

I've noticed a lot of guys weren't that into 3.33 for the same reason why fangirls (like myself blush ) were all over it. Seeing that the plot is heavily focused on the relationship between Shinji and Kaworu. That being said I'll be waiting for my own personal copy to arrive. Even though it's showing in Pittsburgh the chances are slim to none that I'll be able to get a ticket. They tend to sell out fairly quickly seeing as how it's rare that a limited release movie will show up here. And theaters in the Burgh are kinda noisy and crowded for my taste.

I've heard Divergence Eve isn't as fanservice heavy as the cover art leads you to believe. In fact I have read that the only fanservice for most episodes is the OP/ED. Is this true?
It has it's fanservice momets. Like so much anime from that era, the cover art is misleading as to the level of fanservice though. In addition to the excellent outfits that B Dub mentioned, Divergence Eve features gravity (reality) defying boob physics reminiscent of Amazing Nurse Nanako. I sure wish Nanako would get a rerelease.


Nanako was a lot sillier than Divergence Eve but did have it's serious moments. I've seen a lot copoes of the subbed only release of Blue Drop but have the dubbed version myself.

If you're talking about the box set I have, then it kinda is. It has an overlay of Nanako in a nurse and mecha outfit and when you take the overlay off the actual box has her in different bras and panties. The box set also came with a book of her in different outfits and underwear.

Alittle bit like the OniAi set. The front has them all dressed and the back has them in their underwear. I also have the two cases reversed to their underwear.

I've heard vague things about that episode and that's part of the reason why I haven't gotten it. But how bad was that episode on a scale from 1- OMG what's wrong with this crazy

Well she wasn't drawn as her Anime Character, more like a straight up Asian.
But it's just that one episode, so DO NOT let that be the reason why you don't buy it.
Knowing that it's there will make it so much easier for you to get through it.

Trust me It's worth getting grin

Thanks B-Dub. You da best. I got the original boxset ages ago and just never got around to watching it. The way you describe the issue, it sounds like I might own quite the collector's item.

lol, and we'd all just hate it if someone named Honoka looked Asian. lawlz

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 12/31/13 07:10 PM

It is more then likely a fault from the original airing that was just never fixed. That happened with From The New World, but I heard it was fixed on the Japanese Blu-ray release.

I would like to put me two cents worth in on the The Third: The Girl With The Blue Eye topic. kiku says don't let the remarks regarding an apparent animation issue in one episode keep you from experiencing the majesty that is The Third. It's an excellent anime, with a kick-a?? story, cool setting, and interesting characters… IMO.

It's because of Viz's anime titles are distributed by WB. In other words, the titles have actual "street dates", instead of your typical release dates.

Warner Bros is very strict with their street dates. If TRSI breaks one of their street dates, then they will face some harsh consequences from them.

Star Blazers 2199 Blu-ray 1 (S)
Wow $ 44.99 for 98 minutes and the price for the DVD is just as bad.

And I was about to cry about the fact that I thought it was suppose to get a Dub and didn’t. ( than I saw the price )

But at these prices even with a Dub ( and I can only Imagine what it really will cost if they Dub it )
I would have to hold off till the Complete Collection came out and has a price drop,
and maybe even till I could get it USED

Of well, it's priced out of reach ( even if it had a Dub )

Actually that price is pretty reasonable. By comparison the Import version of volume 1 on Blu-ray is $80 and only has the first 2 episodes of the series. The other volumes with 4 episodes go for around $90. So essentially we're getting this for less than half the price it would cost to import.

Why go through the trouble to Name/Market it Star Blazers and than Not Dub It !?

If you are trying to get the Fans of Star Blazers (which is a flown blown English Dub Anime Series )
and not just the ones who would be fine with it staying Space Battleship Yamato, why would you do that and not Dub it.
There wouldn’t even be a Star Blazers without a Dub, that’s the whole reason why the English Language version is called Star Blazers.

It is being called Star Blazers 2199 to appeal to North American Auditions, but with no Dub.

It just seems like why even bother with the Name and not Dub it ???

I can only imagine the whole switch over from Space Battleship Yamato to Star Blazers is gonna screw this whole thing over. Maybe they assume the majority of people who demand the SBY title/ original purists will be more inclined to spend import prices and think they'll get more out of Blazers nostalgists.
But, on the other hand, like you said they should have gone the dub route if they were appealing to the less hard core fans.
Which leads me to believe that they aren't expecting much from the American print run as they are expecting from the import crowd. Most of the older and formerly Americanized series don't sell well when restored under their original title. Possibly Gatchaman if any did fairly well. But even that isn't immune from the Battle of the Planets fans claiming they want their "original" back because the "new" version is somehow retroactively destroying their childhood. Just hoping they avoid another Galaxy Express/ S'Mores fiasco -_-'

It's called "Sankarea" and nope, no news yet. It will probably be a while. I didn't find it to be that great of a show, so it doesn't really matter to me either way.

I have a suspicion that they wanted that to happen and that is the reason for switching the title on the American release. With there being 7 volumes (1 for $80, 6 for $90) there's no way I'd spend that much. You are far braver than I, t-Roy. Just hope your wallet survives the journey wink

Well Sevi, I just bought the first four Japanese releases of Space Battleship Yamato 2199 last night - A-zon JP has them on sale for about 30% off, plus with the low Yen/dollar conversion rate, I got them for $53 each plus $20 shipping - so they aren't much more than the US pre-orders right now. I almost bought all seven, but I held back... I posted more about it in the "just bought" thread...

I previewed the first four episodes on my computer yesterday, and totally loved it - I'm a huge Battlestar Galactica fan, and this is basically just an animated version of BSG, with the added bonus of their hyper-drive canon cool, so it's a slam-dunk purchase for me, now...

G?? d????? I'm jealous! That box is one of those items that the scalpers have thoroughly harvested. It's totally deserving of a rerelease. My hopes are up since the rerelease of Divergence Eve.


Aside from the "Torpedo Boobies" TM pend. Divergence is one of fav sci fi series.

I can't recall what kind of Case my Nanako came in.
Except that it must of been in a Case that's bigger than the standard 14mm-ish Case,
since I have it in one with a Homemade Cover.

Man now I want to re-watch it and my Divergence Eve Seraphim Collection

The only difference between the CE and the LE is that the CE has trinkets included - two pendants and three pins...

I guess the CE and LE digibooks are going to come in art boxes as well, although they are going to be individual boxes, rather than a single art box wide enough for both parts. I myself would have preferred one wide box over two, but whatever. I'm not so crazy over the overlapping discs in the digibooks, either. And has anyone verified yet if the CE and LE sets are DVD G1 height, or Blu-ray G2 height? I also wonder how crooked the boxes will be for these? smirk

I'm still seriously thinking of dropping my order for the LE set and going with the regular Blu-ray sets instead, just to save myself $50 on the series, and not have to worry about the other crap.

Yeah. The only way I'll go the extra mile for physical extras is if they're items that are exclusively available through purchase. And I've seen better quality versions of the pins and necklaces available through cosplay sellers. But, I figured it was worth mentioning that there was a CE available.

Also, I believe the art box thing was bad info someone recieved - I don't believe that is correct, or Funi would have showed it in their promo photos... I was wondering about that. I doubt they would have decided on adding an art box after those promo shots were taken - but it would be something nice to have for the Digibooks to slip into. I guess we'll find out for sure when it ships, lol....

Guess you haven't been on the forums over at Anime News Network. The people over there are so vehemently against this series that you would think the creator ran over their dogs and gave them cancer. Though the response on Crunchyroll has been positive for the most part.
Does anyone else notice that when the users on Crunchyroll like something the posters on ANN hate it (and vice versa)? You would think there would be a least a somewhat more balanced opinion considering at least some people must frequent both sites.

@ BW - It seems like a lot of the anime licensed through Nozomi/ Lucky Penny are sub only. I think the only series I have dubbed from them are K.O. Beast, Gravitation,Princess Knight. And the latter of the 3 was dub only.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 04/20/14 05:50 PM

Haven't the slightest idea. They just keep saying variations of "I hate it/ Worst series evar!!!!1 OMGZOMBBQ". Not a single reason behind it from what I could tell.

Posted by: EricDent

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 04/20/14 10:56 PM

Don't forget that Nozomi has Captain Tylor, Lost Universe, and The Third: The Girl With The Blue Eye.
All of which have dubs.

Though I must admit that I still get kinda annoyed that Emma: A Victorian Romance never got a dub.
It's really odd that a show set totally in England has people speaking Japanese...

I sure hope we get one. Whether it's for part 1, or for part 2; I don't much care… but I want it to match my Index and Railgun chipboard boxes. Oops, I'm sorry; did my OCD just use my outside voice?

Captain Tylor was dubbed back in the VHS era, The Third isn't super recent either. And the only reason Lost Universe has a dub is because it was a license rescue that already had a dub. Same goes for Martian Successor Nadesico (and possibly Utena as well?). Most of their recent titles have been sub only.

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 04/21/14 01:01 PM

Yet, they do teach English to pretty much all the kids in Japan.
Sure it's not really spoken English, but more literary English, so that's why when some people try speaking English in the Japanese version they sound rather odd.

I know they teach English to Japanese kids. The comment was just screaming at me to be made as it is just as odd for Japanese kids to talk to each other in just American English.

Concering Pupa, shorts usually aren't licensed unless they have high episode counts; Pupa only totals out to 36 minutes. It hasn't been licensed, and the show was pretty universally panned, so I would lean on no. I do have an extremely morbid curiosity about it though
Posted by: kakashi12210

Re: Coming Soon Topic? - 05/06/14 06:33 PM

I watched Pupa and was very disappointed in it. It had the potential to be something good. I did enjoy a couple of the episodes though.

It should of stayed Yamato 2199, since it didn't get a Dub, everything else "Star Blazers" is Dubbed.
Yamato is Subbed and Star Blazers is Dubbed !

I'm talking Anime, I know a live Action Movie got a Dub, and it kind of sucked. laugh

I agree with you 100% on the title for the US release, B-dub... I of course don't mind sub-only, I actually prefer it - and I intentionally paid an extra $100 for the series (over $400) by buying the Japanese Space Battleship Yamato 2199 series through Amazon JP instead - just to avoid having the Star Blazers name on the covers... I absolutely despise any westernization of anime, even something as trivial as a name change... SBY 2199 is the most expensive anime series I've bought, other than the Studio Ghibli Import series (which will be at 20 releases this August, and about $1100) - but 2199 is downright awesome, very similar to Battlestar Galactica to me, which I am a huge fan of - and the anime is 100 times better than that Yamato live action movie that recently came out. sick

I've got both Battlestar Galactica Series, I also ( like yourself I'm sure ) saw the 1st Series during it's Original Run.

It's way more organized & clean...

Update for September 9.

Sony releasing some more Godzilla movies on Blu-Ray.

Godzilla 2000 with both the English dub version (99 minutes long) and for the first time in the USA the Japanese version (107 minutes long).

Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (AKA GMK) & Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla (Kiryu) as a set.

Plus Rebirth of Mothra 1, Rebirth of Mothra 2, and for the first time on home video Rebirth of Mothra 3. All 3 are dubbed & also have the Japanese version on them.

So if you're keeping track, this means only Godzilla 1985/Godzilla Returns is still the only one never released on DVD/Blu-Ray in the USA.
It's only on VHS.
Also some of the older movies like Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla (original) are getting rare.
Hopefully either Mill Creek, Sony, Kraken Releasing or somebody re-releases those rare ones (from the mid 2000s) on Blu-Ray/DVD again.
