That's correct. Missing episode is still missing.

Re: Gundam in the US

For anyone who doesn't already know. Iron-Blood Orphans is apparently set in the same universe/timeline as Gundam 00.

It's nice to hear that Gundam dubs are still being done though. IBO first episode was already better than G-Reco or AGE ever thought about being so there's that too. IBO is the first Gundam series I'm really looking forward to since Gundam 00.

Re: Gundam in the US

Saw Turn-A Gundam in my video store yesterday: $49.95 each for Parts 1 & 2, which makes it $100 for the whole series. A bit steep if you ask me.

That comes out to ~$2 an episode.

Not bad when Japan charges like $40 an episode. It's almost 80 bucks over there for a release with two episodes.

Re: Gundam in the US

It's not super cheap or anything (like we're accustomed to around Black Friday, especially with RS around), but Amazon has Turn A collection 1 for less than 30 and First Gundam Blu for ~43, both somehow cheaper than RS. But remember, the RS sales haven't all been revealed yet...

Re: Gundam in the US

Any chance of a re-release/repackaging for Gundam Unicorn on Blu-ray? Right now a complete set runs $350-450 on eBay.

There is a chance. RightStuf has vaguely hinted that there is a possibility. With this distribution deal, it's all up to SUNRISE.

So better than the Dragon Boxes coming out again, anyway .

OK, that's good news. I'll be content collecting all the excellent releases they're putting out in the meantime.

Re: Gundam in the US

I wish ZZ and Turn-A at the very least would eventually get an English dub. Otherwise, I'm not interested in purchasing sub-only material. Even though I watch subs, I just never had the mindset to buy the home media of anime without a dub.

According to my cable onscreen guide, the new Gundam series starts on Cartoon Network tonight at 12 Midnight EST, not 12:30 AM.

Here's the Toonami website link to confirm: http://www.adultswim.com/toonami/

This is the first new Gundam series on Cartoon Network in about ten years, right? Since Gundam Seed Destiny.

Here's a link to the Toonami trailer:

Re: Gundam in the US

I've been getting the Gundam Origins series from my local Japanese video store, paying $13 per episode. Last time I checked, Part 4 (the last in the series) wasn't yet released. Well, Right Stuf Anime announced pre-orders for the Blu-ray of Part 4 and guess how much they're charging for a 60-minute animated episode?

Read it and weep...

Re: Gundam in the US

They've all been that price, it's basically the Japanese release. Media prices in Japan are really high, which is why reverse exportation was a big concern for a lot of licensors. The 13 dollar stuff you've been getting are most likely bootlegs or taped copies.

Since it's already dubbed I'm fairly sure a cheaper domestic release will come along further down the line. You can also rent it on Amazon video.
