$35 is not a bad price at this point in time.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

Anything new on the Fist of the North Star releases?

There was something about four box sets which seems a little odd way to divide the series; I can see HnK2 on it's own box set but the first series is already divided into four chapters.

Nothing new at the moment. We won't know until it's solicited for release.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

via ANN / Official Press Release
Quote:
NIS America, the American subsidiary of the Nippon Ichi Software game company, has announced on Thursday that Toradora! will be its first anime license for North America. The company will also release Pandora Hearts, Persona -trinity soul-, and Our Home's Fox Deity. (Wagaya no Oinarisama.) NIS America will make collector's items available for its anime releases. Release dates and pricing have not yet been announced.

The Toradora! anime adapts Yuyuko Takemiya and Yasu's light novel series of the same name. In this "superdreadnought of love comedies," a high school sophomore named Ryūji Takasu is ostracized because his angry-looking eyes make him look like a troublemaker. Meanwhile, there is a tiny but ferocious girl named Taiga Aisaka who is also shunned — even by her own family — as the "Handheld Tiger." Taiga agrees to help Ryūji get closer to his high school crush, if he helps her get close to her own crush. The 10th and final volume of the light novels shipped last March, and the anime adaptation ran on Japanese television from 2008 to 2009.

It wasn't mentioned on the PR. However one person @ AoD/Mania that attended that panel mentioned that BD was noted.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

What's the status of the Dirty Pair?

I have the original 10-part OAV series on VHS from ADV, plus the longer OAVs and movie on Streamline's VHS editions (AFFAIR ON NOLANDIA, FLIGHT 005 CONSPIRACY and PROJECT EDEN).

I just learned that ADV put them all out on DVD, but they're now out of print.

Anyone planning to release/re-release them?

What about other Dirty Pair entries? I'm particularly keen on getting subtitled editions of the original Dirty Pair TV series from 1985. Was that ever licensed for the U.S.?

(I'm not interested in the Dirty Pair Flash series.)


Thanks.

It's hard to say though it probably doesn't look very promising. If they still have it, you would think they would have release/re-release it by now.

That's pretty cool. Record of Lodoss War was a fun series. Haven't seen that one in ages.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

Any word on a BD release of Xam'd: Lost Memories? I've been watching it on AFtv (http://www.animefreak.tv/watch/xamd-...ed-online-free) since PSN expects me to pay $3.99/episode to merely rent the series. I would love to buy a full series set on BD but there doesn't seem to be any. At least not with English subtitles (http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-...n-70-3fby.html). And the only news I've seen of a US BD release was back in July (http://www.asianblurayguide.com/news...s_coming_soon/).

SPHE takes forever on their anime releases. I don't expect hearing anything on this until the summertime (cons with the likes of AX and SDCC).

And BTW, I would try not link to sites that are considered to be legal online streaming.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

Thank you, WTK. I appreciate the information.

Sorry about the link. I didn't realise it was wrong to post it as I assumed the site was kosher.

Twitterer JLSkun, of anime blog The Golden Waste, tweeted some interesting news recently that was caught by Nebs. Apparently his local MovieStop shop is listing a preorder for The Girl Who Leapt Through Time director Mamoru Hosoda's latest film, Summer Wars, with a release date in August. No distributor was listed, and JLSkun reported that it and the other preorders he spotted were all removed when he checked back later...

...Also listed are Xam'd: Lost Memories, a sci-fi anime which was simulcast in the US via the PSN, for August 10th-- 13 episodes on DVD for $49.98 or Blu-Ray for $99.98 --and the anime adaptation of the movie Ultraviolet, titled Ultraviolet 044, twelve episodes for $59.98 on DVD or $99.98 on Blu-Ray, due July 13th. These two both did have distributors listed: Sony...

Flower Mound, TX (April 3, 2010) – FUNimation® Entertainment today announced that it has acquired the home entertainment, broadcast, digital and merchandise rights to three anime movies which continue the story of the series “Eden of the East” (known in Japan as “Higashi no Eden”) from Fuji Creative Corporation.

The three films are “Eden of the East Movie 1: The King of Eden”, “Eden of the East The Movie II: Paradise Lost” and “Air Communication”, all written and directed by acclaimed director Kenji Kamiyama (“Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex”, “Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit”) and produced by Production I.G.

The story continues where it left off from the Eden of the East TV series, and brings Morimi Saki back to the USA in order to find Takizawa Akira. The other Selecao however are actively moving to take part in the game, and a few in particular are making dangerous moves in order to eliminate Takizawa or move towards their picture of a better Japan.

FUNimation Entertainment will release the films on DVD and Blu-ray in 2011.

Also, regarding the releases of the television series on DVD, we will be using the opening, with original music, as used in Japan in addition to the international version of the show opening.
